But you are not making $1.2million per release, so you cant afford yet another gold plated Ferarri...
Like how movie studios Deserve financial help from the government and they never make money on a movie so they dont have to pay taxes.
I would feel bad for them if they were not raging scumbags themselves. Just ask Stan-Lee how he was robbed of any money from the Spiderman movies.
How would your glorious libertarian utopia deal with bad parents?
Well, since Daniel Logan played Boba Fett, I assume we'd send cloned bounty hunters after them...
It looks like Michael York is still around, so with a sample of his DNA, we could send Logan 7 the Sandman after them if they are over 30, and they run...
I see two things coming out of this:
(1) Get a bunch of your friends together; stand all around in photogenic places so it's impossible to get a shot without you or one of your friends in it; charge to sign the release
(2) Be about to do something that will end your political career, like going to see one of your 6 baby mamas or going to meet someone to pick up your bribe; have a large security detail; have them arrive first, and stand all around so it's impossible to get a shot without one of them in the picture; have them refuse to sign the release
The first should be a wonderful drag on the tourist industry, while the second should be an effective way to prevent people from taking embarrassing pictures.
A power switch
If you need UI beyond that, then there is something wrong with the default settings for your device.
For a networking or storage appliance, it should get on the network using stateless autoconfiguration.
If a system on your network wants to use it, it should find the services the device offers via service discovery.
If you need access controls, the device itself should find your directory service on your network via service discovery.
The only thing you should possibly have to deal with explicitly is pairing with the directory service, and if that's necessary so that you can't be MITM'ed by someone making unauthorized use of your network, it should be a momentary contact button and an LED other than the power LED on the front of the device, combined with a serial number affixed to the device. Think "Bluetooth keyboard/headset pairing".
If you administer anything at all, it should be your directory server, mostly to establish accounts, and ACLs for the accounts, which are then used to authenticate the machines that consume services advertised by the appliances and servers on your network, and on the peer machines/clients which establish authentication sessions after you hit ctrl-alt-del, or login to the login window after boot.
It doesn't matter how you SAY it. What matters is how you WRITE it, and unless you write it in an unambiguous format, you are not communicating fully or properly.
The only time it is ambiguous is if you switch between formats. Big endian and little endian are just as arbitrary as m/d/y and potentially just as confusing if you aren't sure which of the three is being used. As long as the convention is understood it isn't a problem. I agree that m/d/y is kind of dumb but its here and isn't going to change anytime soon.
So we should use a format that makes no sense because the rest of the system makes no sense?
Dude, let it go. The fact that for whatever reason we use month first (which I agree is odd) isn't going to change. People have been doing it that way for a LONG time now and in practical terms it's not really a big problem. It's only confusing if you switch between formats. If you want to rail against something how about starting with getting the US to switch to metric or something else that is more than an occasional minor irritation.
Uh, No. Apple chargers are smarter.
Here's a reverse engineering of the Apple ability to negotiate higher power levels than are supported by the standard at that USB version level, assuming Apple cables, and an Apple charger:
If the source can support it, the cable will handle it just fine.
Not necessarily. Some cheap cables don't have enough conductors to safely carry 2A. Also USB-PD is a power delivery extension that allows cables to identify their current limit using the ID pin originally added for OTG. These cables have the standard USB2 or 3 icon enclosed in a "battery" outline.
There is a bug in the downstream power standard Intel chipset when used for USB-PD. You can't actually run it at 2A, or you have to only run it that way in ports that won't let you charge and communicate with the device at the same time, as a hard-wired option. We found this out designing the initial ChromeBox, which is why two of the back USB ports are not really that useful for charging.
If you're using something other than an Intel chipset in your PC, yeah; the TI USB-PD/OTG implementation works, although I don't think there's any laptop hardware or desktop hardware that uses it. I think it's mostly used in drives and drive enclosures.
Apple tends to get away with it because they use discrete electronics separate from the USB controller to handle downstream charging; of course, this makes their hardware more expensive, but it works, which some people value.
I'm not sure how many power bricks are intelligent enough to do the USB-PD negotiations.
There's some rather nifty drawing board plans for 100W power deliver for things like monitors, but so far, they've only been been demonstrates as FPGAs, rather than someone spinning them into silicon. The article on it is here: http://www.theinquirer.net/inq...
Is there data available on how many people got measles in the bay area outbreak? How many were vaccinated, etc?
3 cases requiring hospitalization, 14 cases total, not all of them traceable to the same patient zero U.C. Berkeley student; 5 more cases traceable to recent travelers returning from the Philippines.
Generally stats are not published until after the quarter is over, and then it requires some time for the reporting window to close.
U.S. Immunization rates for measles by age 1 is 92%, according to WHO: http://gamapserver.who.int/gho...
I typically would not expect them to publish stats on vaccination failures to non-medical professionals, so no idea if any of the 14 cases so far were persons who were vaccinated. According to PubMed: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pu... published in 1996, the apparent failure rate is http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pu... published in 2004.
It also appears that about 70% of the people actually contracting measles are accounted for as vaccine failures, if this NIH report from 1987 is to be believed: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pm...
The numbers are within an order of magnitude of what you'd expect for a 92% vaccination rate, with a 10% failure rate (leaving the unvaccinated 8% to account for the other 30% of cases, since one would expect them to be predominantly rurally and regionally isolated at about that a 2.8x rate compared to "vaccinated, but failed").
Of course, failure rates vary by vaccine, as this 1988 Lancet article points out comparing the Edmonston-Zagreb vaccine to the Schwartz vaccine in 4-6 month year olds: http://www.thelancet.com/journ...
So we can guess that out of the 14 total cases, we can guess ~10 are vaccine failures, and ~4 are non-vaccinated, with about a 4% margin of error allowing a 9/5 split instead.
Like I said, they really do not like to publish numbers like this, and in a small sample like this, there are HIPPA considerations to publishing such data, since it would violate medical privacy for those who were vaccinated, but in whom the disease occurred anyway.
The difference is that "AllahIsFalse" is political/opinion speech, while "MegaUpload" is engaging in commerce and/or barely free speech.
Yes, Free Speech is Free Speech.... but political speech -- ie, "meta speech" -- is more deserving and in more need of free speech protections than your torrents are.
Technically, MegaUpload was political in the same way that MPAA donations to U.S. senatorial campaigns are political. It was an argument by implementation against a politically supported business model which would not still exist, were it not politically supported by things like the Sonny Bono Copyright Term Extension Act. Otherwise, most of the content which is enforced against because of copyright would be off copyright already.
At comcast that is how we worked from 1998 to 2007 when I was there. Security breach? I can tell the CEO to fuck himself to his face and yank the plug. And at many times I saw executives escorted out of the data center by guards because they were being idiots demanding we restore internet access. Management are clueless morons, they must be left out of the loop for security.
It's why Cops dont have to call the mayor when they see a guy running into a bank with a gun in his hand and a big sack with a dollar sign painted on it.
"Maybe they're just fucking idiots,"
This describes the management of all large corporation IT departments. IT is an expense, they are not really important like the marketing department.
The last thing I want is some politician locking me in to some similar BS desgn.
Got it, loud and clear.
So who, other than a politician, do you want locking you into a similar BS design, because you're going to get a BS design, whether you want one or not.
"We have established what you are, madam. We are now merely haggling over the price." -- G.B. Shaw
What I want is for someone to separate data from charging!
The more cables on your desk, and the more connectors on the device, the merrier?
