Re: Time to reconsider nuclear
Ireland has quite a lot of coastline, making wavepower and offshore windpower an option. They're also subject to fading but less so than onshore windpower.

"There wasn't any disease in care homes though until the sick were sent in, so no cull necessary. Seems more like an attempt by UK govt to solve the pensions crisis in typical Tory caring fashion."
Amusingly, cutting their own throats - since it's thought that the 'grey vote' is what keeps them in power.
"More people need to stop mollycoddling these halfwits, the charlatans that push this crap online need a meeting with a judge and a labour camp and parents who go down this rabbit hole should lose their kids until they smarten up (if they are capable.....)"
They'd see that as martyrdom and be encouraged. Better to admonish them gently as Linus did, and then ignore them.
It 's not just once though, is it ?
If they decide they want to put one there, there'll be disruption whilst it's installed and doubtless access required from time to time. And haven't compulsory site rental rates just been reduced, making a lot of people not want the hassle ?
The excuses are, I agree, a bit thin. But it's their roof. Why should they let someone build on it ?
Would be nice if it :
Showed ALL the tweets from my selected twats, not just the ones twitter considers I should read
Why Twitter feels it should select, reschedule etc. some tweets while showing me duplicates of those that are retweeted by another follow, I cannot understand.

Given that he doesn't appear to actually do anything, it surprises me immensely that anybody would notice if he stopped.

I hope they also have a law that the rents charged for floorspace at the airport cannot exceed the rent for a similar establishment outside the airport.
High rents - charged because the sellers have a captive market - are the usual reason for high prices.
English lacks unambiguous rules for precedence. I think that should be read as
(NHS and related) managament hate whistleblowers. It's instinctive. They just can't help themselves.
and not as

It's normal to keep records of an action for some months in order to ensure it is completely over. There is even a fixed (minimum) time for financial records, and it's a lot longer than that.
If he were trying to steal the data, he wouldn't have told you he had a copy.
If he had only kept screenshots, how could he prove what else he had had temporary access to?
What if you came back in a few months and accused him of stealing and using some data, and there was ambiguity over whether it was in the repository ?
There's also some survivor bias involved. If the stated fact is the latter one, it could more accurately be stated as
'exclusively used by almost all the criminals we know about or caught'
which is even less convincing as a reason to ban it - not only is it likely that cleverer criminals use something undetectable, but that it's possible (perhaps easier) to catch those using OTS crypto.
Note that Signal counts there too, and is very likely transparent to five-eyes monitoring.
It's pretty sad that the first reaction to feds doing stuff like this is that they're sneaking in and adding their own spyware. More of a condemnation of the feds to have let their reputation slip so far.
The saving grace is that they (allegedly) did this using the malware itself, not the holes in Exchange. If you weren't already being attacked by malware authors and had failed to remove the web shell yourself, they (allegedly) did nothing. Presumably people cynical about the feds would have already done this.
What you get in exchange for enabling the BT service is the ability to use it on others addresses when you're not at home. It generates a separate SSID, it doesn't open up your home network.
However, when I tried it, the signals I could get from other users were so poor that it was unusable.

I'm not in favour of removing them from history. How could we learn from their mistakes if we hide them ?
But where they occupy a place of honour, such as the name of a building or a prominently-placed statue, I think it's reasonable to show our disgust by placing them in a museum - an actual repository of history, not an airbrush - rather than in pride of place.
Their work is more problematical, Rowling being a good example. Since her work doesn't, as far as I'm aware, make any comment on trans people I see no reason to cancel that. But it's common to provide a platform for people who have produced well-known and appreciated work : we don't have to do that if it's likely to disseminate unacceptable views.
We deal with Hitler in this way and, by and large, it's successful. We don't ban Mein Kampf - we allow it as an object lesson. We do ban far-right groups who disseminate those views. It hasn't resulted in complete suppression of those groups but they have remained a minority, at least in Europe.
What this ends up saying is : you cannot make simple rules about free speech. It requires thought, judgement and open discussion.
And for reliability. Your tests were performed using some version of imported code. If you rebuild using another version, those tests are invalid. Just because you're using a later version with supposed bugfixes doesn't mean that there aren't new bugs, or that the fixes don't trigger latent bugs in your code.
You need to know when you import a new version, and repeat your testing when it happens. Until that point your code is made less reliable by importing a bugfix, not more reliable.
To be fair, the guy who built the dual DVI system was also the guy who defined the PIO's instruction set.
But yes, I've seen a lot of interest in the PIO. A few other devices have something like it - the beaglebone's PRUs, Motorola's TPUs, the Cypress USB engine, the parallax propellor .. but they're largely seen as rather specialised, for the expert. These cheap and accessible PIOs that can be used to generate video could get a bit more interest going in assembler programming and FPGA state machines.
