In this Belgian journal article (dutch), he mentions he is sorry his colleague Robert Brout can not share and celebrate with him. He died in 2011.
Also, we should just get rid of the ignition keys for cars, since some of them can be hot wired. On an unrelated note, whereabouts is you car?
You fail to understand the problem, in a car YOU have the key, with UEFI, a great deal of organisations (MS, BIOS vendor, MB vendor, HW vendors like Dell/HP/Lenovo/...) have the key to your computer - we dislike the fact that as the rightfull owners of those computers, we seem to be the only ones NOT having a key.
If you want a car analogy, it is more like not having a "key" for the filler cap, wheel bolts, engine,... You can start, you can drive, but you can not replace parts, use other fuel supplier, do your own maintenance. There might even be restrictions on where you can drive to.
>An "agile" project cannot fail and cost Billions because it must always deliver runnable software with a maximum of a few weeks delay You're literally just saying that a project can't fail because it's supposed to succeed. There's many reasons agile projects can fail. If a team is unable to deliver a working release then the project has failed. Also, if the release works but doesn't incorporate the required functionality then the project has failed.
No he isn't. He is saying "not(p1 AND p2)" p1 is "an agile project can fail" and p2 is "an agile project can cost billions".
An agile projecr can fail in several ways:
- Calling it "agile" but not applying the basic principles. Then you'll fail in Waterfall mode
- Fail early, but not sinking huge budgets
- Fail later, delivering something in a workable state that can be the basis for other development...
Examples of "calling it agile" are: starting to do an analysis round of several man-years filling up a backlog with thousands of stories already estimated to help the development team; analysts that are not willing to validate the "working software" so that the team has to keep guessing for long periods of time;....
You know, 1HP/cu in really isn't all that impressive.
Wasn't it about 40 years ago?
Applets run in the same environment as webstart these days.
Not really. They obey similar sandbox rules.
But key here is that applets are embedded objects running in the context of the browser (Java plugin). A webstart application is essentially a download of an xml description file (jnlp) and a new javaws process handles this. You can easily configure your browser to download jnlp files instead of opening them with javaws.
Because some people deployed the applications using Applets and WebStart so just getting rid of it becomes a bit of an issue.
Nobody uses applets for anything anymore - except the baddies - disable the java browser plugin and be done with it. Webstart is not the problem.
Unless it's for the Wii
I see, i own one Wus. Together we have two Wii.
[...]this means that it is an all or nothing choice, activated by default to block everything.
It's a choice. Opt out of the filter. Actually, opt in for ads.
[...]I just got out of a meeting at my job [...]and because Linux has no stable filesystem with enterprise features [...]
Sure, AC has some real complex stuff to handle on an enterprise level. That's why all the big boys like Google, Facebook and Twitter are using Windows to host their data...
You're either a silly moron, a self deluding enterprisy [a-z]+architect or a very capable troll.
Oracle works fine from the command line, installation included. I know, I've done it.
"discourage" does not equal "makes impossible", I didn't say GUI is required...
PostgreSQL is free, no money burning required.
It is an equation, not a pricelist: (Budget = Oracle licence fees + paying people) or (Budget = Zero fees for PG + paying people), more to spend on competent people.
Hadoop is not a database server.
Did I say that?
Not to mention...if you try usinig/installing some tools, like Oracle, which forces you to use a java GUI to install and other configs....you have to have X running.
Command line only, is often not a valid paradigm, depending on what you want to do with Linux these days, especially if using commercial software on it.
On the plus side, though, having a headless server discourages you from installing Larry's beast and keeping it well fed.
If you've got that much money to burn you might as well install PostgreSQL or (shudder) Hadoop and hire some real competent software/system/* engineers
These programs are malware and spyware and use the same methods to stay on as virii.
I think you misunderstood the man. He was doing some maths with Roman numerals: "VI are II" but since 6 does not equal 2, it makes him seem less pedantic . But he's still a moron.
Indeed, such a fine officer. Taking the best bucket, brush and the best soap money can buy and applying some elbow grease to scrub that computator until it shines as brand spanking new. And then taking a new photograph with a camera from a top tier camera builder - or re-imaging as the youngsters would call it these days... And this fine man would leave spyware on that thing? I simply can't believe it.
No, no, he's as innocent as the children he was monitoring^H^H^H^H^H^H protecting.
