Comment Trump Quote on H1Bs (Score 1) 420

Trump: “I was not at all critical of him. I was not at all. In fact, frankly, he’s complaining about the fact that we’re losing some of the most talented people. They go to Harvard. They go to Yale. They go to Princeton. They come from another country, and they’re immediately sent out. I am all in favor of keeping these talented people here so they can go to work in Silicon Valley.”

Comment Very few people understand this (Score 1) 607

Also a lot of blacks and hispanics are actually quite conservative. The only reason they are not republicans is that they don't feel particularly welcome in a party

Very few political commentators understand this salient point. They believe minorities are mostly liberal, or just vote for the person that offers the most free stuff. If that were true Bernie would have dominated that demographic, yet the direct opposite happened.

Comment Ever heard of Java HFT? (Score 1) 232

Java has been doing realtime for over a decade now. In fact the very first JSR was JSR 1: Real-time Specification for Java which began in 1998.

Saying Java is not suitable for realtime due to "unpredictable GC" shows you haven't read much on the topic. Many Java open-source projects guarantee millions of operations per second on the right hardware. Java has a huge HFT community footprint.

Take a look at what http://chronicle.software/ and OpenHFT is doing for instance.

Comment Not a Java, or even a library vulnerability (Score 3, Informative) 115

We were corrected by Mr. Frohoff that said the vulnerability is in how developers treat user-supplied serialized data, and not the library itself.

http://news.softpedia.com/news/the-vulnerability-that-will-rock-the-entire-java-world-495840.shtml

This is an issue with how some users use a 3rd party library Apache Commons Collections. Java doesn't have to be fixed. And Apache Commons-Collection doesn't have to be fixed, except maybe stating the obvious...

Do not deserialize objects with executable code from the internet.
