Awesome. You just made my day.
..... I'll trade my Macbook Air in for a Surface Pro 3!"
Is there still any prospect at all? I left 5 years ago because they stopped improving anything for a decade.
Emacs still has plenty of awesome projects going on, just that they're bloody haphazardly organised. You need to really go look for them and sometimes some minor assembly is required.
For example, the single most awesome Emacs package right now is Org-Mode, which especially speaks to me as a writer (a lot of writers swear by Scrivener, but screw it, we have a better open source alternative in Org). You'll note that it's developed outside of Emacs proper with its own release schedule. You'll note that if you want the newer versions (which aren't always required, the ones shipped with Emacs itself are usually pretty decent) you need to get the git version or use the one from Emacs ELPA package manager, which in itself is still kind of in early stages and not many projects make themselves available through it (translation: I use a whole bunch of emacs extensions, but none of them are available through ELPA). If you want nifty extensions for Org, you really need to hunt random files all around the interwebs and pray they actually work in current version of Org.
This sort of disorganisation is actually just what Emacs has been all about for decades. The core Emacs devs don't innovate that much (well, at least they do add cool new features in major releases, which is a good thing), and just package the outside contributions whenever they can. There's all sorts of cool shit going on, but you just wouldn't always know where to find them.
(That said, if you want to develop Java or C++, NetBeans just blows Emacs off the water.)
Never attribute to malice that which can be explained by incompetence.
To me, this sounds like a pretty open and shut case of "Hey, I've heard that these 'NoSQL' database thingies are trendy these days. Let's use one of those!"
There's a difference between using fun, exciting new technologies and learning something new while doing that... and doing a project which stays in schedule and budget, is based on technology you already know thoroughly, and on which people's lives can depend (well, indirectly).
This. I had something similar happen to me while I was in 9th grade.
And it all stopped when I said "fuck it!" and got into a fight with the most obnoxious of the bullies.
We fought very publically to a draw.
And from that day on, it was over.
Violence ends bullying. Nothing else, in my experience anyway, ever does.
Hakin9 is a magazine that's not exactly too reputable.
It looks like someone took a paper "written" using SciGen and submitted it to them. Because they didn't read the paper at all, they didn't notice it was absolute bullshit courtesy of finest context-free grammars people could code.
Brilliant work - not only is SciGen great for busting less than reputable scientific publications that don't exactly value this "peer review" thing, but now it has busted security magazines too.
My first computer: Spectravideo SV-318: 16 KB.
Current computer: A not exactly a new PC, way behind the curve even after a few bits of RAM added: 2 GB.
So 125000x the memory, I guess.
He simply said "servers." Most of them could be VMs running on a much smaller number of hosts.
LOL, not with Hyper-V it wouldn't be.
Thank you, for this.
All they have to do is pass a law stating that there is oxygen there, and there will be. Easy as that.
The appeal brief (linked above) is worth a read. There's a lot of legal-ese in there (obviously), but it raises some very serious questions (not the least of which is double jeopardy.) There's also the legitimate question of what constitutes "unauthorized" access. From what I can tell, AT&T used those individualized headers as an authentication/authorization scheme, and relied on security through obscurity. Auernheimer changed the headers and gained access to accounts that were not his. There was no other authentication "challenge", no effort made on AT&T's part to verify the authenticity of the header, and no encryption.
Auernheimer is certainly a shmuck, but in this specific instance, I don't think he broke the law, and if he did, it was at worst a misdemeanor. I really think this is AT&T pushing for aggressive prosecution to cover their own tails: that security scheme was so weak that they'd likely have been subject to a lawsuit of their own had they not gone after Auernheimer aggressively.
The Constitution is the highest law in the land. If it is not Constitutional, it cannot, by definition, be lawful.
4. Be smart and keep a separate
This, for the love of Torvalds, THIS.
I can't count how many times having a separate
And now, rather than deal with the constant re-installing, I switched over to Linux Mint Debian Edition. Rolling releases are where it's at.
There's little that is as dangerous as "effective government". The more gridlock, the better, I always say.
