Even Plan 9 was being used commercially years ago. It's disturbing to think that plan 9 is being used more than HURD.

From what I remember, microkernels were just too slow.
With wikipedia, you get what you pay for.
What good is a source of truth if it's not accurate?
Wikipedia was not meant as an existential discussion on the meaning of truth; it was meant as a crowdsourced source of truth. What details do you consider important or unimportant? Why would one detail be not worth correcting?
The last thing I read about faking information on wikipedia was some life detail about an author - that even her relatives believed! It wasn't important, except that it was.
If Wikipedia cared, it would put this banner across the top instead of their fundraising banner: "The information presented may or may not be accurate. All the information here should be verified by other sources before used."
Those are licenses, not royalties. If you want an example of how to make licensing so complicated that it's incomprehensible, read up on music licensing and royalties. Licensing to ASCAP/BMI is not a royalty - it's a license. I would think that BMI/ASCAP would pay royalties as part of the license fee, but it sounds like they don't.
Someone needs to come out with a diagram of how, what, and who gets paid in the music business.
The numbskulls on teh Interwebs just want more bandwidth, faster, for less. They supported the FCC action because they're idiots, just like gruber said they were.
This is exactly what it's for: apartment buildings. There are lots of places around the US where DSL is on-prem, and it's supposedly cheaper than fiber or running ethernet.
Make sure that everyone knows what they're supposed to do, what's expected, and when it's due. It's really not that hard, except that apparently it's really hard.
"no other nation has a right to tell them what to do."
Nobody is telling Iran what to do. Iran has violated multiple agreements, agreements that it signed. That said, I'm not sure why the Obama administration believes they will honor this agreement. Fifth time is a charm?
What they're saying is if you write bad code, it performs like shit. Did someone get a PhD from this?
The price of ECC ram doesn't drop for years and years.
The signs of the apocalypse have been around for thousands of years. What makes these signs any more relevant than the other signs?
Chances are, you don't know anything about databases. JetProfiler will show you the crappy queries you're using in an easy-to-understand way so you can fix your stuff and make everything faster.
AFAIK, no such tool exists for Postgresql.
As a bonus you don't have to deal with the annoying psql/pgsql crap, which for some reason drives me bonkers. I mean come on, make it psql or pgsql, not both. WTF?
Austin, as usual, is full of shit.
Clinton said she never sent classified emails from her server. However, she never said that she didn't receive classified emails on her server. As anyone in the government industry knows, when you get classified emails on an unclass system you have to "sterilize" your servers.
Did she do that? Probably not.
I guess that's why she was such a crappy SecState - everyone's intelligence services were reading her emails.
