it drops to 3 when I go on a bender.
You forgot it requires Scientology application 3 times a day.
and far better articles than the New Yorker....
Really I DO read the articles...
Like multiple DIES... the way we used to do it with P3 and P4... sadly Intel and AMD hate their users and only allow that on their server line where the processors are 4X the price and 1/2 the performance.
I will gladly pay for the motherboard to support 4 processors at 8 cores each, but I am stuck buying craptastic server class processors at extortion pricing.
FM radio stations all get to play music for free and in some cases they get paid to play it. Yet on the internet BMI and ASCAP turn into vampires sucking dry anything that is different.
The blame is The labels, BMI, and ASCAP. Those are the ones that deserve all your anger, ire, and hatered.
While they're probably not nice people, and they may not even be good people, it's not fair or reasonable to assign karmic penalties based on a worst-case what-if scenario. If you're going to play that game, you might as well say that all carjackers deserve slow, painful death because they could use the stolen vehicle to run over kittens and baby seals.
Looks like your wrong too. I didn't assign karmic penalties for anything. The fates did. If karma decides that aall car jackers deserve slow, painful deaths to keep them from running over kittens and baby seals, guess what, they do. That is the thing about karma, its always right.
Maybe karma didn't decide these two where to die for stealing the cobalt-60. Maybe it just decided that was how they where to die for other reasons. But it doesn't matter, they are dead and karma decided that. Just like my karma will decide when its my time and so will yours.
I need to upgrade every 2. But I am one of those guys that actually uses the computer. Programming, advanced mathematics, and HD video editing all demand the fastest processors or more and more cores. I have 12 cores right now and wish I had 18 or 20 as I could use the speed to get more work done.
"For decades, low skilled software developers have been able to play fast and loose,"
Embedded system programmers are the only real programmers anymore.
Yes it is, If you knew anything AT ALL about computers or electronics you would know that. Go look up how audio pathways work in a computer kid.
They have had wireless charging for a decade for larger vehicles. the Golf carts at the local golf course have done this for at least 10 years. you drive on a rubber mat and the golf cart starts charging, Exact same thing for a car unless they claim they can charge the car from dead to full in 20 minutes, then I highly doubt it as inductive charging cant handle that much power in a wide air gap transformer (This is what "wireless" charging is)
The karma in this case seems rather disproportional. Yeah, what they did was horrible, but death, esp such an ugly death, seems a bit out of balance.
I don't agree. I think the karma is spot on. The karma is not for what they did but what they could have done with it. They could have been intending to use it to make dirty bomb what could have exposed hundreds, if not thousands to such an ugly death.
I would agree with you if they had just stolen a truck load of money or just about anything else. Karma is a bitch though. An I'm sure glad that I'm not them.
""In our article, we describe how the complete concept of air gaps can be considered obsolete as commonly available laptops can communicate over their internal speakers and microphones and even form a covert acoustical mesh network,"
This is 100% bullshit.
That is 100% wrong. XP is a pain in the ass to pirate and Windows 7 is the absolute easiest to pirate. Windows loader, one click and I'm done. Windows XP requires a mess to keep it from blacklisting the generated key.
You really need to learn about piracy before you talk about it, because windows 7 has a huge OEM hole that makes it effortless to crack. Windows 8 is getting about as easy to crack as well.
XP is not "dying" I have servers running Windows NT 3.51 that still make more money an hour than 100% of the people here on slashdot. and they are 100% secure because they are on a segregated and airgapped lan.
When you have something working and you have enough spare hardware to keep it working, why waste money and time "upgrading" simply because some idiots think you need to. Short of someone doing a "mission impossible" break in my servers are 100% hacker proof. Oh and here's a tip they ALL have the administrator password set as password1234.
They are specialized servers that can play back 16 broadcast quality MPEG2 streams into digital video in CATV headends. 16 at the same time all from a single pentium 1 processor and barely any ram. the playback cards play the video directly from the SCSI hard drives. The replacement today from Seachange are less capable and break down more. These require nearly ZERO attention and continue to run year after year just printing money for us. and we have enough spare parts to handle any issues and give us a year lead time if we ever needed to do a complete upgrade to current tech. If an OS if supported means nothing at all if you have sysadmins and network people that actually have a clue as to what they are doing.
Fly to Cuba, Cuba to Canada. Not hard.
