How exactly then will this work when one DNS server has a record for one Ip address and another points to another such as an anti Putin site?

Also the DNS is replicated off the core servers and trusted so your solution does not work unless you use your own DNS server but really who does this outside of IT geeks?

Submission + - Windows Server 2016 goes RTM. Evaluation is available for download (

Billly Gates writes: The next version of Windows Server has arrived. This new version is more cloud and virtual machine oriented with more features such as Docker container support, a new tiny headless version designed to run as a docker VM in Hyper-v called Nano Server, 3d graphics support in remoteFX for OpenGL and Open CL for Hyper-V vms, nested virtualization, Powershell Direct, Shielded VM support, stable REFS file system, Hyper-V Linux secure boot support, Storage Spaced Direct which now are clustered and ADFS v4 which supports multifactor authentication with OpenID support. You can find the features listed here as well as here.

Nano Server has a 92% less footprint requiring significantly less rebooting, patching, and security updates than a traditional Windows Server virtual machine.

CNN just showed today that Gary Johnson couldn't even name a single foreign leader!

Here is the source?

Sorry, but just because he shares your libertarians beliefs and he has a honest personality doesn't make one qualified to be president. I know more than Johnson for crying out loud and it shows he does not watch the news. I was hoping for him but will certainly support Clinton now. One wrong word or choice has devastating consequences like a war.

I am becoming more and more convinced the founding fore fathers using only an electoral college and not direct voting was put in place for reasons such as these.

Truth needs context. Even the undeniable, scientific truth of Newton's Laws, are only true within the context of non-relativistic, non-quantum environments. "The pure and simple truth is rarely pure and never simple."

I know, it's mind-blowing. Better retreat back to the catchy, comforting soundbites spewed by your favorite candidate (whichever it may be), that fits your simplistic worldview.

No I want freaking competence!

This man will have nuclear codes to all the atomic weapons and stated he would shoot an opposing boat if they tried an act of bullying. This what is called an act of war.

All the other stuff with voting for folks like a football team is scary. This is not entertainment and serious business.

A question to you back?

I know Americans like to root for the teams in politics like football and cheer on and boo their favorite and opposing teams. But let me ask you this?:

You saw the debate? You saw Trump's temperament, competence, and how he would respond to stress and criticism first hand. On your team or ideology or not do you really trust someone like that with full nuclear codes for all the atomic weapons and be commander in chief of all the American Military?

It depends where?

I had quite a life living in both Southern California and Alaska :-)

So, so Cal it is bad for global warming as the mediterian climate turns desert for both agriculture and water for citizens and Citris farmers. However, in Alaska WAHOO! Farmers who left Oklahoma in the dust bowl in the 1930's have moved north of Anchorage to Palmer. In the old days the frost free season was only barely 90 days north of Fairbanks central Alaska. Talk about TOUHGH!

Today it is more +120 days as 90 degree days occasionally showing up in the summer a few times a year. This means crops :-)

So there are winners and losers in a warmer climate. Alaska, Sweden, Russia, win in a warmer climate. Unfortunately Africa, India, California and others lose as winter weather systems that bring rain move farther norther.

Comment Re:Wifi everywhere yet? (Score 1) 154

So you say you can't say it is theoretically impossible to limit 10 megs per second per PC on a wifi? True most corporations have duplex 100 megs but that is mostly because if the PC/Phone is not connected to a router but rather a switch will have alot of chatter. 10 megs per second dedicated by a wifi router with no broadcasts storms should be fine enough.

In 2016 there really should be no wired connections unless in a cluster or data center in my opinion.

First off Hyper-V is a type 1 hypervisor. It runs underneath the OS as the host OS (in contrast to Vbox and VMware Workstation) is really another guest that runs on top of hyper-V.

Basically the hostOS is the parent with more control of the children guests. it is like this as the hypervisor runs at ring -1 underneath the kernal at the cpu.

I disagree as last weekend I cursed at VMware Workstation for being shitty in i/o and vowed never to run a type 2 hypervisor again. You need to create a switch as the parent guest (orginal host) needs to connect to the internet and have it shared with the other children or guests.

I am not saying I am a fan as I have not run KMS/Qemu or VMWare Sphere yet but Hyper-V is soo much better on my workstation with less bugs in my experience than with both workstation and virtualbox products. Just create a switch that is external and add that to yoru Vms and you should be good. It is not a bug but a feature as it is underneath everything and needs to share with your host or parent OS to your nic. It seems weird at first but makes sense from an architecture standpoint.

If this is automated running Edge as a container makes sense as Hyper-V supports shielded guests. As I type this I am already running under Hyper-V as I have this enabled on my 10 PC. I ran benchmarks.No difference in performance really besides 2 - 3 FPS in games. A container similiar to Docker makes sense and I hope Chrome follows!
