I wonder what would have happened had they not had Google Translate. A boy?
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
We've improved Slashdot's video section; now you can view our video interviews, product close-ups and site visits with all the usual Slashdot options to comment, share, etc. No more walled garden! It's a work in progress -- we hope you'll check it out (Learn more about the recent updates).
Generics killed Java.
Wow, what a punishment for a CEO, being fired with a million dollar golden parachute.
5: Use AllowUsers. Quite often there are only one or two users who need ssh access (from external IP's), so enable only those and limit the rest to local net (or disable altogether).
6: Use non-standard port. Won't help against NSA, but helps against script kiddies (who are not targeting you).
It seems that they have not done even the most basic preventions, like traffic shaping. The ATM's should certainly have higher priority than internet traffic (and dedicated guaranteed throughput channel), but alas, they failed too. Same with shops, other banks, etc.
Several processes in multicore is parallel.
And it needs to be parallel. For example my current desktop is A8-5500, got it for ~$100. Four times more single thread performance - how much would that cost?
Why not? Currently Firefox has problems rendering (loading) two pages simultaneously, although it should be able to handle tens, using several cores.
Same with Evince (which is crap anyway), it cannot do anything in parallel, should be able to use tens of cores.
And so on.
It will turn out to be as wrong as "640k".
What I think they are pushing is Xamarin.
That way they would get far more developers for Windows Phone. The best part for Microsoft is that the applications made in Xamarin works best on Windows Phone. When the sore losers who picked Xamarin have 1M lines of code they no longer can back out, but Microsoft won't care (to fix the "corner cases"), the next hit game is first and best in Windows Phone.
Oh *uck even Gnome One is better looking! BTW, does it have systemd?
Well, at least it did not have blinking background. Or have my brains fused, did it?
My new-year-resolution will be "640-is-good-for-everybody, if it is white on black"
I have never claimed it would be a picnic. I just said it is nowhere near top five problems we are going to encounter, though it will be a problem.
The claim "pests will conquer us" is a tad, well, one sided. We will get some "nice" immigration too - but the alarmists never mention those.
Same with the weather, in every alarmist article it "will suck" or as you point it "there is a possibility". If the last five summers is any indication, the weather will *improve* considerably (for us humans, sure some "pests" might suffer).
Furthermore I do not think we should burn coal, and in any case certainly should not burn oil, it is far too scarce and valuable and should be used only in mobile systems (planes, ships, cars to some extend).
I wonder if you fear every other change too. New job? "But there is a distinct possibility it will suck". Getting married, buying house, going to a vacation,
 And then not mentioning that the possibility is ridiculously small.
And at the same time they dislike "nucular" 'cos it is
I live in Northern Europe - for us this will mean insane regulations. Just insane.
The people who we call "redgreen" (communistic-environmentalist-extremists) are the second biggest problem to earth. The biggest is exponential population growth. Global warming is somewhere aroung fifth to tenth - at least for us here in the north.
Yea, CIA admitted, before 911, that their main task was commercial espionage. So now they are threatened that Chinese might be faster?
(yes, there are documented cases, e.g. german windmill technology in production being patented in USA)
Are you insinuating that in Enron only three to five were doing illegal stuff? No way!
Sorry, I think Enron (and others) got us into this "not responsible".
Isn't it nice
Number of prosecuted persons (from last bank breakdown - and one before that - and next) is just appalling.
Sure, there were censoship after the war, but the GP was talking about -80s. If public libraries did not purchase something, it is hardly censorship, is it? One library decided not to buy Donald Duck though it was widely available in shops. Buying or selling any book was not illegal, not even "Mein Kampf". (Offtopic: I hope every neo-nazi reads the book, 'cause it is bullshit).
OK, I'll give that the classification board can be considered censorship, though it could not prohibit import or private viewing (they were always legal), only movie shows and sales (it was designed to stop violence and during one period even porn - as if that stopped anyone after first VHS). The board was considered a big joke in Finland.
The Renny Harlin movie is probably error in the Wikipedia, -86 was no longer the time of Finlandiseirung - Kekkonen died that year. OTOH the movie should be banned worldwide, and not be shown ever again anywhere, it is so bad.
The classification board did quite a few idiotic and objectionable decisions, for example "One, Two, Three" was banned (no TV or movie shows allowed).
