Comment Elons Official Response (Score 1) 330

Tesla is calling on car manufacturers to disable its "Self-pilot" feature that enables self-driving operation. Citing the recent 32,675 fatal accidents involving a car with Self-pilot engaged, Tesla labels the feature as "Too Much Self Reliance Too Soon." Tesla said car manufacturers should "disable self-driving operation until the system can be made safer." "By marketing their vehicles as 'Self-pilot,' car manufacturers gives consumers a false sense of self-determination."

Prior to this change, the path could never be too long to fit into the buffer, Windows wouldn't allow it. Windows only allows a maximum path length of 260 characters, anything more is considered an invalid path name. The total path length including directories could not exceed 260 characters.

Comment VLANs are your friend (Score 2) 384

I think you could configure each port on the switch with a different default VLAN and plug those into the terminals (e.g. Port 1 gets VLAN 1, Port 2 gets VLAN 2, etc). That will by default separate each port into a separate network. Then use VLAN tagging on your XP VMs that you were going to spin up, so they each are effectively connected to a separate port on the switch (e.g. VM 1 is tagged for VLAN 1, VM 2 is tagged for VLAN 2, etc).

This is just the high-level details of what you'll need to do. Most lower-end consumer grade switches don't have VLAN support, so you may need to spring for a better switch, and make sure your VM software supports VLAN tagging.

Comment Tracking Beacon? (Score 4, Insightful) 40

potentially turning every coffee consumer's device into a tracking beacon

Sensationalize much? Maybe it's just to tell which Starbucks you're closest to so it know where to place the order or narrow down the nearby store results? That would be the more likely reason.

Do people seriously think that any app requesting location services is turned into an always-on tracking beacon sending their every move back to Big Data(tm)?
