Really? My mobile phone has a 64Gb SSD in it which is enough for several hours of video even in HD. It's significantly smaller than the tape storage devices that were used in CVRs until recently.
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
The pilot murdered more than a hundred people by deliberately flying a plane into the ground.
There's not much character left to assassinate.
Aircraft have two blackboxes: the cockpit voice recorder (CVR) and the flight data recorder (FDR). The former records audio in the cockpit and the latter records data from various instruments and controls. In this case, they have found the CVR but not the FDR.
You didn't read their paper properly. They make exactly the point that you are making. i.e. that "writing to disk", in most cases, does not mean physically writing individual bytes to the disk. The abstractions provided by both the language and the operating system help to make the obvious implementation as fast or faster than naive programmer created optimisations. In other words, this is a confirmation of the saying
premature optimisations the root of all evil
There is a WTF in the paper and it is their claim that Python doesn't run in a VM.
I certainly wouldn't be caught using nano, not since our sys admin accidentally trashed a Linux system by editing the pam config file with nano. After he saved the file, nobody could log in anymore because nano inserted a line feed where a long line had wrapped in his terminal.
We got the system back by booting from a live CD and using vi to join the broken line back together.
I gave my first gen MBP Retina to my brother when I refreshed it . It's three years old but he still considers it a pretty fast computer. Admittedly, I maxed out the specs when I bought it.
Is it not already illegal to call out a SWAT team for spurious reasons? It's dangerous for the object of the prank and it means the SWAT team is unavailable for real call outs.
That's just poor design on the application designers part. It should be obvious that, even if the customer hasn't moved, shipping addresses aren't necessarily the same as the office address.
MyISAM is basically BerkeleyDB with a server process over it.
I think that's unlikely. If it were true, it would be able to support transactions and more granular than table locking because BerkeleyDB does.
They didn't provide a fact, they expressed an opinion. It's an irrelevant opinion given that other database servers also have had vulnerabilities.
Not even that. You can't do generalised virtual hosting with SSL.
The host header is just a header like any other so the server can't figure out which certificate to use to set up the encryption layer. It is possible to do it in a restricted set of circumstances with a wild card certificate that matches all of the virtual hosts.
GP means he fled from the jurisdiction of British authorities. He had been arrested in the UK and was on bail in the UK. By fleeing to the Ecuadorian embassy, he violated his bail conditions in the UK.
Incidentally, by violating his bail conditions, he cost some of his supporters around £100k. He's not a nice man, in fact I think he is probably a rapist. That's the most logical explanation for why he skipped bail.
Hosepipe attached to a car exhaust and fed back into the car. Sit in it with the engine running.
Given the political importance of Christianity in pre-enlightenment Europe where being the wrong ind of Christian was literally a matter of life and death, any Bible published before the 18th century can be expected to be politically slanted. The KJV certainly fits into that category but since it was an English Bible for the English form of Christianity, we can be sure it was politically slanted in the right direction - all other versions of Christianity being corrupt papist nonsense or something like that.
The trouble is that version control is fast becoming a monoculture. Soon git will be the only version control solution in town and it's a bit shit really. It's popular mainly because Linus Torvalds wrote it, not because it's actually technically a good program.
