Well, 10 minutes after the upgrades, the install of the new service, the hard reset of the router, the changes to the firewall
Currently only had one 10 minute job that's hit the day 3 mark
Yep, still using a 4M Plus PS here. No duplex unit tho', dammit!
Ok, so he didn't use the quickest way, only the way he was familiar with. At the age of 4. In an emergency situation. And got a good result. That'll do.
I'm obviously using it wrong. Well it crashes when I use it, so using it is wrong.
nor can I legally modify my router to use banned spectrum bands
Got a ham license? Then go right ahead for WiFi channel -2.
I can use Firefox for hours before I have to kill it to free memory. I can use Chrome for weeks before I have to kill it to free memory.
Well, here's a servo amplifier for use under neutron flux:
Uses "Nuvistors" - kinda the last gasp of mainstream thermionic technology, in a metal case.
Would hate to try and implement a portable CPU like that, though.
They're much more like: "Why does processor X on board Y rev1 have I2C on those pins, but on rev2 accessing those causes a reboot. Who thought that was a good idea? Can I LART them? And how can I detect board version in software?"
My router was G. My router was old. My router worked fine just everywhere in my house. And garage. And shed.
Then there was a thunderstorm and the the ADSL port went deaf.
So I go a new, high power N router.
Now I can get a great, full bars signal from anywhere in the house, but can no longer transfer any data
at all from three rooms away, never mind the garage, even though I've got a full bars signal. WTF?
There's some of the ham spirit left in the fringier bits of ham radio. Have a look at microwave construction, ham tv, qrp, and general sdr+gnuradio.
I had a problem with a Netgear router not being able to remember DHCP to MAC assignments. This was a problem in the version of dnsmasq baked into the firmware, but that had been fixed in the current version of dnsmasq. So I called up technical support to ask if there was a later version of the firmware, or source code I could rebuild from. After about 40minutes of going through a completely useless script. ("No I won't click the start button, Debian doesn't have one, you insensitive clod.") I gave up and eBay'd the paperweight. No more Netgear for me.
Because 9 out of 10 CEO decisions could already be done sufficiently well by a Magic 8 Ball. With some improvement in AI design, the 10th is just a matter of time.
Just fill the Magic 8 Ball vocabulation firmware with buzzwords and viola!
What makes *this* perpetual motion machine different enough from all the others that it's worth a look?
Well, the lack of someone trying to sell something while hiding how it works. That and there have been several independent groups that have already looked and haven't found something obviously wrong. So the chances of this being a real effect have gone from one in millions to one in hundreds. The smart money is still on "there's something that's been overlooked". (Faster than light neutrinos = dodgy cable???) But at least this is now interesting.
It will have memory leaks, but if you measure how fast memory leaks you won't be able to tell where the leak is.
Over the shoulder supervision is more a need of the manager than the programming task.
