Wasn't part of the point of NTLMv2 (vs. NTLMv1) that it required a challenge/response with the server, to make stolen hashes less useful?
Why is this being pushed as news? Possibly because of the current dust-up between conservatives (Fox News) and Facebook, accusing Facebook of bias in editorial decisions affecting the "trending now" section; there's talk of overwhelmingly liberal workforce in silicon valley, and anything that supports the idea that silicon valley is not representative of the rest of the country would help buoy that complaint. Or maybe for completely unrelated reasons, I dunno.
When did downloading a file become a copyright violation? As I recall, copyright protects against redistribution without permission, which would apply to the uploaders but not the downloaders, no?
http://foxtrotalpha.jalopnik.c... -- there was already discussion in 2014 about replacing the lift fan with dual (top & bottom) laser domes.
“The fact is that, although the new software may enhance privacy for some users, it severely hampers law enforcement’s ability to aid victims. All of the evidence contained in smartphones and similar devices will be lost to law enforcement, so long as the criminals take the precaution of protecting their devices with passcodes. Of course they will do so. Simply stated, passcode-protected devices render lawful court orders meaningless and encourage criminals to act with impunity.”
Lawful requests are not automatically meaningful -- fetch me the moon, explain love, find the last digit of pi, relocate this unmovable rock... You can always ask, you can punish those who resist the order, but in the end you either need to learn to accept failure, or think twice before asking for the impossible.
The argument is that at some point, law enforcement or a court might want some piece of information, but face embarrassment when naively requesting that which is inaccessible? Cry me a river! Just because information "exists", or is believed to exist, it does not necessarily follow that it should be possible (nor easy) for a judge or detective to fetch it.
A judge may someday want to know where I was, yesterday at 3:14am. Does that mean it would make sense to require me to keep a sufficiently precise diary, or wear an ankle monitor, just to enable that possible future discovery request, so the poor slob doesn't have to face disappointment? Law enforcement has always been a cat-and-mouse game, where it's expected you won't be able to get information the easy way; bills requiring it to be easy won't change that.
Seems a touch more nuanced than that, but still concerning.
Unfortunately, no. Postgres can only replicate to other instances operating on igneous rocks (e.g. obsidian and sovite) but the data gets lost if sent to instances hosted on chalk or gneiss. Might be fixed in 9.6, though.
Early on mysql was limited in the kinds of joins it could do...
Can it do a FULL OUTER JOIN yet?
I happen to use and love FB, it's been rock-solid for me for over a decade now, but I've never pushed it for *performance* reasons. It's always been about the features: MVCC that always works (unlike Oracle's, and on-by-default unlike SQLServer's), transactional triggers (came in really handy), triggers that do what you intend (unlike SQLServer's), better temporary-table mechanisms than SQLServer, better stored procedures (selectable like a table-valued-function, but can read & write like a stored procedure). There's no equivalent to PostGIS, though, and there's no built-in replication method beyond shadow databases. And other stuff that a Wikipedia page would be better at explaining.
If you're serious about speed, I'd love to see benchmarks to back you up. If you're trolling, I hope readers will consider Firebird anyway, it really is a good DBMS.
I would expect the issue to be MVCC, not FKs. Both Postgres and Firebird do MVCC, which incurs overhead when writing data (never overwrite, always add delta records, then fix pointers so readers can follow the chain, and also cleanup deltas no longer needed by any active transactions) and when reading data (follow pointer chains, verify a given record should be visible to the current transaction despite it being listed in the slightly-larger index), etc.
The switch from myISAM to InnoDB brings MVCC with it (in addition to, as you point out, actual constraints) so the cause/effect may be unclear.
What about the people who procured these units and didn't test them, either before the sale, or before deploying them? Complete lack of due diligence. Are they not liable too?
http://www.abc.net.au/news/201... -- Cardiff rejected the student petition to uninvite Greer from giving a guest lecture. Dawkins supports letting her speak, and he's no conservative.
a) it didn't actually happen; Greer has pulled out because, at 76, she's "too old" to face protesters according to http://www.newstatesman.com/po...
b) she wouldn't have been "banned from campus", but her one guest lecture would have been canceled
c) it's not like all liberals, or leftists, agree -- sweeping generalizations are unfounded
d) this is not about squashing free speech, the way Freedom of Speech (at the federal level) is meant: nobody's preventing these people from having their opinions, but they are asking not to have tax dollars (publicly-funded schools) or tuition money spent on giving them a platform to spew what some people *see* not just as "wrong" but outright "hateful" speech (rightly or wrongly). the logic is that a school only invites so many guests, it has to be selective, there's value and judgment applied, so the school's reputation is attached to what the speaker actually says (and may be seen as reflecting something about the student body), it's not the same as letting them rant on any old street-corner.
Damn, I didn't realize that Buckley provided moral justification for LGBT's (a minority, who happens to be in the right) overruling the majority. Thankfully they didn't have to resort to violence to do so, but it would have been justified, I guess. Handy quote!
Wasn't there something about a PASCAL programmer knowing the value of everything and the Wirth of nothing?
