Yeah. A language without functions/procedures/methods/named predicates/subroutines (same thing basically) is not a programming language, unless it's assembler, in which case, if you're not using standard conventions that essentially implement organized subroutines (i.e. functions...) you're not doing it right.
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
Ok, if I'm writing a webapp that accepts a password, presumeably if I wanted to increase security somewhat I would put in a guessing rate limiter.
5 strikes and you're out (for a while).
So assuming (a reasonable assumption still in most cases, I hope) that the adversary does not have the file of password hashes, how exactly do they try the trillion guesses per second?
Explain please. I'm sure I'm missing something obvious.
It's good to see that the bandits and bridge trolls trying desperately to maintain artificial scarcity and artificial economic friction may soon be disarmed.
Now let's just make that global.
"What everyone needs to come to grips with is that there is no energy source without environmental impact."
True, but that doesn't mean we should throw our hands up and stop exercising judgement.
Impacts can be weighed, placed on a relative magnitude and severity of risk/impact scale, and acted on accordingly.
On such a scale, the impacts of for example, solar PV and wind technology are fairly obviously much less than that of continued fossil fuel energy systems.
Hydroelectric and solar photovoltaic energy, and wind power, and fossil fuels, are all non-renewable in the several billion years time scale, since they are all byproducts of the energy gradient caused by the sun's electromagnetic radiation hitting the Earth assymetrically, and that nuclear process will eventually burn out, and before that change to a level that won't sustain life here.
So the term renewable is actually a functional term which has a time span parameters i.e. renewable(cycleLengthLow, cycleLengthHigh, maxOverallDuration ) which is true for certain ranges of duration for different energy exploitation technologies. Hydro-electric then, if used to a level that reduces buffers, is renewable(1y,1y,5billion y), solar pv is renewable (1d, 1m, 5billion y), etc. where as fossil fuel use (at buffer exhaustion consumption rate) is renewable(100m y, 500my, 5billion y).
If you have a team of unemployed DBA plodders that you need to provide work for, and an employer that needs to get rid of piles of money fast as a tax dodge, use Oracle,
without a license? (pronounced "lee sons" - see "The Pink Panther - Peter Sellers" "Do you have a lee sons for your moon kay?" "Show me the lee sons!"
That is a severely regressive design move.
This computer should have retained magsafe for charging then had one of these USB-C things for, you know, port stuff.
My current MBP would have been knocked from table/chair to floor ten times now if not for magsafe. What the hell were they thinking?
I can only hope the next ultralight MB Pro retains magsafe and a couple of ports.
that water could flow on it?
And what accounts for the difference in surface temperature, given that Mars's orbit didn't shift by that much?
Maybe you just need a nice quiet place with no distractions (like an outside window) where you can remember.
The second password shouldn't brick the phone, it should take you to a second version of your phone's file system, which contains only the "happy birds" game, a collection of bad but sincere teenage poetry, and a spreadsheet listing the names of each member of Canada's federal government cabinet alongside a 6 figure dollar number.
wouldn't exist if it weren't for copyright or "IP" violation.
Traditional music, folk music, jazz, blues. And what about the second and subsequent painter working in any characterizable style/genre.
Greed vs Art is about what it amounts to.
If someone gives me their estimate for a software project or task, I double it and add 30.
If someone asks me for an estimate for a software project or task, I rough it out, then double it and add 30.
It's really amazing how much stress that avoids (oh, and it also does a passable job of converting Celsius to Fahrenheit.)
Ever heard of a brain break?
(Of course you have. You're doing slashdot.)
The idea that you can get better productivity out of scientists and engineers by preventing them from taking brain breaks in between their manic periods is ridiculous newbie MBA talk.
"You want this kind of thing to continue? Make sure there's funding (and paid time) earmarked for doing it."
So let's see. A simple web-app with a database hosted on a crappy server computer somewhere.
That's going to cost the whopping sum of what $50 a year to maintain right?
I for one welcome our new fiscal watchdog overlords.
