The alcholic who was drunk driving and killed someone should get a reduced sentence?
You must have spectacular newspapers if they aren't getting their content from people who also publish on the web.
Or a really quaint attitude.
What this article tells me is that a quarter of the internet users are still using a web browser that was released on August 27, 2001. From a peak market share of %95, it has only come down to %23 in eight years (and change). This survival is against massive "IE6 must die" campaigns, introduction of fairly decent, and standards compliant (comparatively) browsers such as Firefox, Chrome the ever improving Safari and the somehow still surviving gem named Opera.
I was hoping that the rise of social applications like Facebook, Youtube, Digg and popular business applications such as the ones made by 37signals would put an end, a final nail in the coffin if you like, to this monster from the digital stone age.
But obviously I was, surely together with a whole bunch of other fellow

If - by some miracle - Apple would be legally forced to allow 3rd parties to install OSX on non-Apple hardware they would be knowingly selling OSX for non-Apple hardware. Wouldn't that automatically give them SOME support requirements?
Can't Apple just lower the service level for OSX?
How do companies like Microsoft and Red Hat handle this?

Couldn't help myself, from TFA (emphasis added):
Before the discovery Saturn was known to have seven main rings named A through E and several faint unnamed rings.
What kind of a messed up numeral system do they use in NASA?
Joking aside, the ring divisions are labelled (from the closest to furthest) : D, C, B, A then F, G and finally E as the outermost ring.
Wonder what they will name this one, anyone good with sequence puzzles?
Its too early to predict if the Amazon cloud will do anything meaningful or if its going to be a spectacular failure.
Considering 64 billion objects and counting, if the latter is to happen it's bound to give a whole new meaning to "when it rains, it pours".
I've already tried solutions like Lustre or GlusterFS, but they doesn't seem to provide directly "RAID5 over TCP/IP", just stripping, mirroring or both (RAID 0, 1, 1+0). On the commercial side, "scale out NAS" products usually requires to buy new, specific hardware and aims at very large installations.
Did anybody already aggregated NAS storage using open source components ? How ?
