Is it still in Beta? They should get this "right" and maybe look at other large scale models like weather modeling and add culture (how close people tend to get to each other, how much they are inside in the immediate vicinity of other humans) to the algorithms. It took google years to get gmail out of beta but it was pretty good while they were calling it "beta".. Slashdot on the other hand....
Root CAs can sign anything, you'd still trust it. Certificates for individual services or even a wildcard cert for *.yourschool.com wouldn't be a root CA certificate. They can intercept all your traffic while you are using their network and so can anyone that has hacked them and got access to their private keys. Regardless of the risk (it's not very low usually in schools) they have been eavesdropping on you without telling you and I believe even the UK has privacy laws that explicitly prohibit that.
Someone bet their job on this the OP said. Well, I guess that eavesdropping on students is illegal, so they should quit their job and file a police report describing what they did.
Oracle didn't make SElinux. Turning it off is just a bad idea these days. If you don't understand how it works or how to use it, step away from the root prompt and go back to class, but don't switch it off.
I logged in on a computer I hadn't logged in on and I got the Beta again? I thought we were over this and SlashDot promised not to try that shit out anymore before the fixed everything was wrong. FUCK BETA, I don't want it because it sucks. I thought that was clear by now????
In the US, there's a fundamental right in the constitution, the right to be left alone. This reporter violated this man's right to be left alone, placing him and his family in a life threatening situation. I think that this reporter will have to be held financially accountable for all costs to protect and relocate these people and give them a new identity.
This web site is a front end that is supposed to federate all the suppliers of health care insurances. Since there is no clear and complete standard interface, most of the work goes into making "glue code" to get all the insurers hooked up to the system. The visitor has to be able to experience all of this real time. Try interfacing with over 50 slightly different but very similar complex computer systems that each have their unique protocol. Writing good requirements documents is an absolute nightmare, let alone unit tests, full flow tests, regression tests, security tests and whatnot. Once you have that, you might get to writing code and discover that your performance will suck horribly due to all the special cases you have to account for....
Airliner turbines are extremely efficient at transforming energy into air movement. Because of expanding gasses in the burn process inside the turbine, roughly 9 times the amount of air being used in the burn process is being "propelled" on the outside of the engine. The mix of these at the back of the engine is also very carefully engineered. This results in an extremely efficient transformation, compared to a combustion engine as used in cars.
Getting the same amount of efficiency from an electrically driven turbine will be a challenge. Getting the same or better amount of efficiency from the system, including the primary generation of electricity, transporting it, battery losses and converting it in the electrical turbine doesn't sound very feasible at all. It's systems that matter, not components, right?
A French company named Solex made these with a combustible gasoline engine. They ate tires at a rate that no Citibike exploiter would allow. Watch these get banned/prohibited in 3...2....1.....
Your single source is a review of subjective qualities *perceived* in JPG conversions from RAW files made by lightroom. All the review is about is what base curves and algorithms LightRoom applies to the RAW files, not about the actual quality of the RAW files itself, or the ability to make a decent image of said file with manual adjustments. Analogy: you are comparing the quality of JPG images an automatic scanner software generates from two different brands of 35mm film in a film scanner. These cameras have different requirements for making adjustments to things like colour balance, saturation, sharpening and such to get an optimal image output.
As soon as images get rated on how "pleasing" they are, I'm out when it comes to a *technical* review. Give me objective measurable repeatable tests and results and I'm willing to take you seriously, but not this.
With all due respect, but most companies don't need this, they need to get and keep their IT secured and that should be enough.
If you *do* need this, you may not want to rely on a third party to provide you with this sort of service. Your assets are probably way too valuable to solely rely on a third party. The only reason you may want them is to keep tabs on the performance of your own resident spooks and SpookWare(tm), not to entrust the future of your company upon. While I do see a place in the market for these companies, the way they sell themselves is despicable and makes companies act lax and irresponsible towards having their security sorted out properly.
As if people haven't already made up domains and host names that didn't exist then and exist now? As if people hadn't been using public address space that wasn't assigned, but is now? Just because some "privately used" TLDs might get exposed because of sloppy system admins, ICANN shouldn't be running around in circles and cry and shout. Let it happen, it's happened before and it will happen again and again. Stop fighting the symptoms and let it ride out.
MtGox tells us that they don't have those lenses any more, because people claim they didn't get lenses when they wanted them from MtGox, but they did get them delivered. MtGox now says that their stock inventory program was flawed and that this, combined with a flaw in the shipping companies track and trace software resulted in people maliciously requesting double deliveries.
This results in two observations. 1) The "flaw" in the track and trace was a long time known thing and everyone had found a way to deal with it, except MtGox. Due diligence anyone? 2) MtGox didn't do proper inventory counts and only found out that they had no lenses left when their warehouse was completely empty. Again, due diligence.
I don't know about the Japanese law, but it seems to me that because of the lack of due diligence, the management of MtGox would be personally responsible in a lot of jurisdictions for this fiasco?
dutchwhizzman writes "Facebook is convincing partner mobile operators in third world countries to unlock not the entire internet, but just facebook for it's subscribers with a special "facebook only" subscription. By doing so, they are promoting a model where an ISP or operator can charge a fee per web site, instead of flat access rates to the entire network. With the recent agreement between Netflix and Comcast where netflix has to pay Comcast to provide proper service to it's already paying subscribers, we're seeing a worrisome future for flat fee data plans emerge."
The real problem is that universities demand publication of your paper in a "renown" magazine. These magazines know you need to get published and thus are willing to publish anything, as long as you pay the hefty fee required. These magazines have no incentive to check for the quality of the submissions, since relatively very few people actually read the magazines and skip the publications that don't interest them. Give your publication an uninteresting title and people will most likely skip it.
If Universities would set up a peer reviewed web site system themselves and allow their students to publish there free of charge, these magazines have no other way to survive than to pay for good submissions. Students wins and science wins in that case. Even better, getting copies of your paper to interested people does no longer require you to purchase expensive prints of the magazine, since *they* hold the copyright and you can't even publish anywhere else. The few magazine publishers that won't be able to get a third home in the Caymans and won't be able to get a bigger yacht might complain, but they brought it on themselves with their greed.
I'm sure AC/DC will be delighted with their new title of oldest rock on the planet.
