The source of the information is Hillary's campaign and the DNC. The deliverer or messenger *might* be Russia. And that makes a great narrative, but that really does not matter and is an attempt by Hillary and the DNC to discredit content that they already acknowledge as accurate.
Like Majel he had 25+ years of recorded material from TV shows like At the Movies. He even hired a firm to create a voice from that material. As it turned out, that 25+ years of recording was inadequate to create a working synthetic voice.
I suspect Roger had more material than Majel as he was doing 22 minute review shows for some many years compared to Majel's occasional appearances and scripted "computer voice" work.
The current 2 party duopoly is a corrupt manipulative mess as the US presidential candidate choices.
Both Hillary and Trump are AWFUL candidates. So a huge number of voters are stuck voting against who they think is worse. There is NO positive choice.
I do that now for everything. I've got an ad filter running through a local VPN that filters content from advertising sites. It takes out almost everything except in apps that use their own ads rather than the ad networks.
Works on Android Apps and Linux and Macs and PCs can use it as a proxy.
So here's to a much less cached Internet to make sure we all see Ads. WooHoo! Soon no connection will be fast!
With appropriate regulation this just one more path to make both SS and Medicare solvent because less people are using either.
Give me a safer C like what Rust appears to be. Something that produces fast native code, but prevents programmers from doing stupid stuff.
C hasn't gone away because it continues to be the best tool we have for producing fast code.
Don't believe me? Write almost any program in both C and ??? (except assembler) then run them on the same platform. Compare.
Oracle products are specifically designed to make it very difficult and costly to leave the platform given all their proprietary extensions to SQL and supported programming language and development tools.
If your application was designed with Oracle development tools you are likely completely S**t Outta Luck. But if all you did was use Oracle as an RDMBS and avoided all their lock-in traps you should be able to port to PostgreSQL.
But in most situations, Oracle is the Hotel California of platforms: "you can check in anytime you want, but you can never leave.." at least not without significant costs in porting which will be more painful and risky than to simply keep paying.....
Because of this the best option is usually to specify and enforce that Oracle *NOT* be used on any new or replacement projects while the organization just keeps paying and paying and paying on the systems that require Oracle.
There are a number of very good reasons that few Internet startups run out and buy Oracle for infrastructure use.
A language that doesn't have everything is actually easier to program in than some that do. -- Dennis M. Ritchie
