The last I checked (which was a very long time ago) Linux/ext required a logical swap partition for paging. Why not just preallocate some space in BTFS and be done with it?
Yes, they're a large corporation and right hand doesn't know what left hand does... but isn't this more like the index finger not knowing what the middle finger is doing?
I am quite sure that Larry Ellison knows *exactly* what his middle finger is doing.
“But Steve, there’s one thing I don’t understand,” he said. “If we don’t buy the company, how can we make any money?” It was a reminder of how different their desires were. Jobs put his hand on Ellison’s left shoulder, pulled him so close that their noses almost touched, and said, “Larry, this is why it’s really important that I’m your friend. You don’t need any more money.”
Ellison recalled that his own answer was almost a whine: “Well, I may not need the money, but why should some fund manager at Fidelity get the money? Why should someone else get it? Why shouldn’t it be us?”
Yeah, I thought that the lack of support was over patents...

It's about time we started investing in the decentralized name server alternatives.
Seriously! Greenland is still an autonomous country, they should be able to make that decision, not a domain name broker.
It's all just based on perception, TPB thought that by changing the torrent into a link everything would be okay. Turns out, it's still called The Pirate Bay.
I'm not sure I understand your point... I know that these behaviors preceded Nixon... the leak itself outlined the abuse of executive powers of prior presidents. The original leaks had nothing to do with Nixon himself and Nixon administration even encouraged the publicity of the leaks to some extent because they made Kennedy look bad.
Nixon got in hot water because his hired goons to broke into Ellsburg's psychologists office. The pull-out from Vietnam didn't happen because of anything directly contained in the pentagon papers but because Nixon was trying to stave off impeachment.
I don't think LBJ or his predecessors were innocent, but I do think executive privilege has allowed people (of both parties) to hide their activities until after punishment is viable...
You know who got that law passed? People like Daniel Ellsberg, who leaked a trove of *historical* documents; Ralph Nader, the father of the modern progressive movement; and Frank Church, an Idaho Democrat who lead the charge to clean up Nixon's mess. How is it, some 30 years later, that their modern-day counterparts are spending life in a military prison, reviled by their own party, and hiding in the embassy of a 3rd world country?
I think this was the "Yes we can" part of Obama's 2008 campaign message. I guess he should have cleaned house.
If your contract with the hospital is contingent upon regular security checks, then formalize this agreement. Suddenly, instead of a breech of your network, they are just another contractor (like yourself) running security tests on the doctors network. Directly or indirectly, the hospital has to pony up the costs of you filtering their disruptive network actions from their standard ones...
Mod parent up, this is *by far* the best GUI for R I have seen. Is it open source? I would think statistical analysis would be an especially good target for paid open-source SAAS.
I think you are confusing GUI with IDE; RStudio and most of the other R "guis" don't make R more discoverable. SPSS and the like are used because they offer guidance on what one should try given what they already know. With an IDE, you still have to know how to program. Throwing together a text editor, an output window, and an execution button doesn't do much.
It's really disheartening that a professor thinks this solves any of the major pedagogical problems that R forces. I really wish you would STOP recommending RStudio and start recommending tutors.
I haven't used labview, but Knime is both opensource and awesome. I can quickly prototype pretty much any workflow I want and get really good reproducibility. Debugging and unit tests need to be more directly integrated, but it is still a great package for practical science. It has R/Java/python integration as well!
Oh, and please think back to security in the old days of paper checks and manual accounting. It's much hard to forge an SSL cert than it is to fake a doctors prescription.
This sounds like Grace Hoppers rant about hanging 1K feet of optical cable (speed of light @ 1 microsecond) around the necks of programmers that wasted microseconds of compute time.
Computing requires exponential gains so that we can compute additional layers of abstraction. It makes it possible to program what we do. The reason usability has gotten better is because we don't need to write hand-tuned machine code just to get UI widgets working.
And do not tell me that the IT department are that much better than users, usability IS security. Make super secure passwords, users will write them down. Make it hard to install apps, and they will disable security. As Kevin Mitnick has shown time and again, people are the weakest link, not the technology.
Don't worry, we will get encryption and other privacy enhancing products into the hands of end-users soon. Just look at Chromebooks and the iPhone, both have lock-down capabilities that far surpass the average corporate desktop.
