It must be quaint that the US is going Chip and Sign, when the rest of the enlightened world has had Chip and Pin for over a decade and some merchants in some countries, such as Australia, don't allow signatures anymore.
Yep. What makes you think your suggestions have anything to do with Technet? Technet has SFA to do with the MS Development stack. It doesn't come with any paid version of Visual Studio for a reason. If you want a development stack, get MSDN.
With the NBN I believe most of the international links and peering will be handled by NBNCo
All NBNCo do is provide a connection from you to your chosen RSP (reatil service provider), nothing more. Your RSP is the one that needs to provision the bandwidth from the PoI you're connected to, to the Internet.
Yet another "click here dozens of times so we can get more advertising revenue" article. This could have been done in 3-4 pages, not 10+.
They also clearly haven't used Windows 7 as it has the ability to mount VHDs as well. (Windows 8 improves upon that by adding ISO mounting support) The way they wrote that "feature" is as if the VHD mounting is absent in previous versions.
I'd expect to see ISP wide NAT deployed before IPv6.
Too late. Although they default the configuration of the modems they ship to having IPv6 disabled, this will soon not be the case. So when that happens and you sign up to this ISP and buy a modem along with it, you'll get IPv6 by default.
No one's mentioned Virtual BattleSpace2?
What I don't get is that there's no mention of the fact that the US government already licenses the Unreal Engine for America's Army and they also license VBS2 for precisely this form of training.
Yup, same here.
It's frustrating that my wife and I both have an iPhone 4. She's on Optus and I'm on Telstra. Both of us will have "full reception" but she can't access any websites/youtube/facebook/etc. and I can. It's even more embarrassing for Optus when I tether her phone to mine because she can't access the data she's paid for. Optus even called her up the other day and offered here an in-home "mini-cell thingo". To which she repeatedly told the moron that the phone uses WIFI AT HOME!!! IF YOU WANT TO FIX MY ISSUES YOU'LL HAVE TO IMPROVE CELL-RECEPTION AT THE SHOPPING CENTRES I FREQUENT.
She can't wait to switch to Telstra (boy did I never think to hear those words come out of her mouth, let alone mine, considering how hopeless Telstra are with the rest of their communications)
What I don't understand is why these copyright failures don't use what is already in place. All they need to do is file an Order 15A for discovery with the court and the ISP will happily hand over the information required. Since this whole fiasco with iiNET had started, there had been exactly zero Order15A's applied for by AFACT. iiNET even told them exactly how to do it but were then painted as pirate-harborers and sympathisers.
This entire argument by the industry is malicious at best. We have a judicial system here for a reason. A plaintiff just can't order a defendant around with "evidence" without that "evidence" being validated by a judge/magistrate with a court order.
Here's one comment from 3 years ago that still holds true today: http://whrl.pl/RbBoKk and his followup for more detail http://whrl.pl/RbBoMh
I don't get the fuss over this from/. and other tech sites (I'm glaring at you Ars Technica). The *ONLY* thing that has changed is they've removed the 30-day limitation. All the other restrictions in place have been in place for years. There is absolutely *NOTHING* stopping you from creating another account if the old one expired.
- Enable unsigned scripts to run. Preventing.ps1 script files from running by default is a shit workaround for not having an execute bit, and is totally useless. Just turn it off.
Because the execute bit is far superior to only running digitally signed approved scripts from approved signers
SharePoint can be managed via direct SQL database queries from anything, with some care.
Assuming you don't ever want help from PSS.
One of their biggest issues was dealing with a "prominent NA router vendor starting with C" where their LNSs and other hardware would fail spectacularly running certain common dual-stack configurations. It took them years to develop a stable patch for it.
