Maybe that's how it's so secure?
Funny, that's how I feel about people who buy Mercedes.
Can't say I've used a single Oracle product that didn't end up exploding in my face at one point or another for no apparent reason.
One time I couldn't upgrade MySQL because it claimed I couldn't go from paid to free licensing on that version. I've never paid for MySQL in my life. It's stupid bugs and lack of attention to detail like that which makes me think Oracle is guilty, guilty, GUILTY!
We have sliding locks in real life.
When a sliding lock is used on a computer, all of a sudden it's a brilliant idea?
How about rounded rectangles in real life, like erasers and food trays?
All of a sudden when something is a rounded rectangle on a computer it's another brilliant idea deserving of a patent?
Also, online, you could be anyone. Respectfully.
What needs to happen is Ukraine needs to ask for EU assistance, and the EU needs to come together on this. If they don't recognize the Russian threat and push back, Vladimir Putin is going to keep chomping up the small fries. Russia is dangerous, but not nearly as dangerous as the Soviet Union was. If the EU moved forces into Ukraine along their Eastern border, Russia would be contained. It would need to be a sizable EU force, and strictly an EU force. No direct US participation on this one, unless it got bloody (which it wouldn't).
By staying out of it, the US could play the role of mediator and the crisis would likely be resolved peacefully. The US and EU both just need to have a backbone when dealing with Vladimir Putin. The man is a tough-guy wannabe.
Why, I don't even see Russia on that list.
Where do you live that you can change between decent high-speed providers? The best option I ever had was the choice between Comcast and Verizon FiOS. Good luck suing either of them.
Nowadays I'm on a smaller cable provider. And that's the only option, unless you still consider DSL or satellite "high-speed".
Probably a sign of the kind of technical expertise Oracle has and why they should be avoided at all costs.
Are you stupid?
It takes math just to put up shelves in the bathroom.
Also, it's a dam. Not a damn. Damn!
The researchers plan to begin digitizing these collections this year, bringing these fantastic observational works by generations of astronomers who spent more than a million hours at telescopes to the general public and scientists worldwide . The PARI researchers are calling this the Astronomy Legacy Project. The researchers will use an extremely high precision, fast, scanning machine to do the work. To get the project off the ground, they are beginning with a crowdfunding campaign and the funds from that campaign will be used to buy the digitizing machine."
