Google Pixel support is 3 years from first sold by Google, or 18 months after last sold by Google, whichever is longer - that's the same, no?

My Dell is (in day to day usage) only powered by USB-C, which on modern Dells has replaced the proprietary dock connector on the base of the laptop. There is still a "standard" power adaptor, but not the same standard that Dell have been using for past 10 years.
Mine comes from a Dell Thunderbolt dock, which provides 130W USB-C PD, as well as two external screens (one 4k, one 1080p), gigabit wired ethernet and a bunch of USB 3 and USB-C ports for connectivity.
It's nice that everything can be done with a standard system, anyone with a USB-C powered laptop can plug in to my dock and instantly use the extra screens, charging etc. It's less nice that USB-C PD only goes up to 100W, so this Dell workstation class laptop (Precision 5540) that wants 130W can only use specific Dell implementations of it :/
If you don't have such extremes, there are a bunch of very nice USB-C docks doing standard USB-C PD that can be obtained quite reasonably.
In my experience, you have to design your database to answer the questions you need to answer. A wide variety of questions will undoubtedly require several different ways of organising your data in order to answer different questions. Consolidating all your data in to one form leads to sub optimal design or performance as you try to make "one size fits all" work. One big lake where all your data lives, multiple exports of that data in to the formats required for your use cases.
Its The Cloud, its magic, it never has tech problems because the rainbow pixies make everything Just Work and customer applications run smoothly for all eternity without the same kind of issues the useless overpaid do-nothing hobgoblins in the old company server room said they had to cope with.
Its the exact opposite of that. Running things in the cloud, everything can fail all the time, and designing your applications around that fact is what allows your hobgoblins to manage more applications with more resilience than they could curating pet servers in their server room.
* Rosetta will run most everything fine anyway. Apple have good experience of doing this, plus the transition this time is not such a large step - most holdout software that didn't work on the original rosetta were "Classic" apps (eg, for OS 9)
* Most app developers will release newer versions that work on both intel and arm, its not going to be as significant a porting effort as ppc -> amd64.
Nuh-uh - it comes down to permission vs ability. Every participant had the ability to share, but only specific people were given the permission to share. In a traditional courtroom, everyone there has the ability to say anything, but only specific people have permission at any point.
To use your analogy, only the decorators were given the paint and brushes, but they are sitting there where anyone can get them. It would be a crime (vandalism) for someone attending the open house to pick up a paintbrush and use it to paint green dots in the kitchen. They were given access to the house for viewing it, not for painting it.
The actual zoom issue is in cost, they have gone with a pro/business license, which is around £10 - £15 per month. In order to have specific co-hosts, you need the webinar option, which is an extra £26 - £32 per month - its not insignificant.
In a real world analogy, "breaking and entering" doesn't require that you actually break anything, just that you are not entering the building for lawful purposes. For instance, if you are invited to your friends house, but steal his dog while you are there, its still burglary. If the front door is wide open and you go in and take valuables, its still burglary.
With respect to "hacking", the CFAA in the US starts off by saying Whoever having knowingly accessed a computer without authorization or exceeding authorized access.... The law doesn't really mention hacking, just that you have accessed what you were not allowed to. The Computer Misuse Act in the UK has similar language.
I think you've misunderstood what he's saying (or perhaps Clegg has inadvertently said what he means) - they aren't worried about the safety of the data being transferred, they are worried about the safety of their money whilst they transfer data. "we're going to keep transferring data, and we're working on legal arguments so we can't be fined for doing so".
You mean Baroness Harding, aka Mrs John Penrose MP:
Penrose sits on the advisory board of think tank '1828', which calls for the NHS to be replaced by an insurance system and for Public Health England to be scrapped.
Incidentally, Baroness H has just been promoted to be the chairperson for the National Institute for Health Protection, "a new body that will be formed as a result of the merging of Public Health England and NHS Test and Trace".
I'm sure its totally above board.
"Republic" refers to the socio-political power ideology, ie where the power is vested. It says nothing about the source of that power, ie whether it is a democracy, oligarchy or autocracy.
You can have a democratic monarchy, an autocratic republic, and anything in between.
The US is clearly a presidential republic with representative democracy. Saying USA is a republic not a democracy is something low intellect GOP sycophants say because their "enemies" are the Democrats and they don't want to associate with things with "democrat" in their name, but its factually a non sequitur.
It's like saying "That dog is not male, it's brown!".
Apart from narrow area’s in inner cities, stations, airports, hotels and conference/event centres where tall building will screw with signals anyway the ROI of hundred’s of mini-masts will never allow them to be deployed so mmWave will be just marketing puff
However, those are the places that will truly benefit from it. Pre-covid rush hour, or at sports/concert arenas have been historically poor for connectivity because of all the people. Out in the woop woops, you don't need that sort of service, regular 4G/5G would suffice.
I'm still with 123-reg for a personal domain that I don't really use at the moment - in fact, I just renewed it as it expired this month. I was planning to move it off 123-reg aster t he renewal went through, but my plan was to move it to GoDaddy, which apparently is the same company as 123-reg now.
Any recommendations? Don't need any hosting or email, just domain registration and DNS services.
Codespaces is not code repositories, its an environment for developing changes and running the stack of software you are developing in the cloud. Its an evolution of things like docker-compose to do "local" development, but running the containers you need (and the ones containing the code you are changing) remotely instead of locally.
It solves the problem of "I've just been put on this team, what do I have to do to start making changes to the code and testing it out" - with codespaces, you just start editing code in either a browser based editor, or in a local VS editor, and the changes are automatically run on instances spun up for your work. The idea is to speed up the time before a developer can start contributing, and reduce issues around different environments for different developers.
"Yellow Peril", a term which is just as racist as other designations that are now beyond the pale
Ironically, "beyond the pale" is also an ethnic slur of sorts, it meant going outside the British controlled zone around Dublin and into the wilds of the savage Gaelic Irish where anything might happen.
To me the interesting part of the story is that Docker analyzed the data......
I do not use Docker..so do not know of the TOS.. but.. this means they can snoop on my image? Not what I want in a provider...
Then pay for/run a private provider. The free tier allows anyone to publish public images that anyone can pull. "Anyone" includes the people hosting it.
Pervasive voter fraud, I never claimed PERVASIVE now did I?
The votes are in, and after a tumultuous 3 months a winner finally emerges from the counts. However a fraud case emerges in 2 states, putting a few hundred thousand votes into doubt.
Username checks out.
Clotted cream isn't actually that difficult to make it just takes time - cook double/heavy cream for 12 hours at 70C for 12 hours, let it cool to room temperature, chill for 8+ hours in the fridge, and then separate the thick clotted cream on the top from the thin liquid (whey?) left behind. Whip it all together to blend in the crust, add some of that liquid if its too thick, homemade clotted cream.
Only problem is that's 3 days until you can have your scones, buying a tub of Rodda's is far easier :)
You'd think there'd be some kind of automated dependency/security tool by now that realises that a dependency is out of date, updates it and rebuilds everything that was reliant on it (or contains an unannounced copy of it, which is far more likely!). But no.
Docker doesn't hide things behind complexity/obscurity, its simply a tool for packaging an application as an immutable container. Once you've got this container, you can apply things like trivy to it very simply. It actually makes all this stuff a lot easier.
These terms don't come from the ZFS project, but from the Solr project. They have master/slave replication, but they also have a node which checks things - its called an Overseer node., which is a bit close to the bone. Changing these terms to "primary", "replica" and "monitor" doesn't change the understanding of what these roles are, but does remove racially charged terms.
Ironically, in Solr the master does far more work than the slave nodes, as it does all the document ingestion, indexing and searching, whilst the slave just copies the index from the master and does searching.
In 1898 Britain signed a treaty for a 99 year lease from China on Hong Kong
We leased New Kowloon and the New Territories, which were bits of the mainland with a good water supply. Hong Kong was never part of the lease, until negotiations in 1984 led to the UK exchanging HK island for the "rights" being "enjoyed" by HK citizens right now. It would have been very difficult to keep HK without the NT...
As an 18 yr old, I had a summer job as an accounts clerk. One bit of it was boring as fuck, so I wrote something in Lotus 1-2-3 that did it all for me, just had to fill in the rows in the sheet each day; when the head accountant saw it, she went white as a sheet and told me to redo it all again, this time using the calculator.... (and no, not some fancy accounts calculator with a printer outputting an audit log, just a regular desk calculator)
80 characters is roughly what a brain can read and comprehend both the start and end of the line. If you're blessed with really big monitors, 80 characters means you can have several files open side by side without wrapping - as a developer, nothing I write is in isolation, the more context I can have visible on screen at one time is beneficial.
One thing I've noticed on projects with no line length limits is more complex code - longer lines allow more levels of indentation before a developer is prompted "hey, this is a bit too long now, maybe refactor?".
A lot of my development is in Python, and there is a good trend to use psf/black to format your code automatically. It removes almost every single tedious discussion about code style, and everything looks the same. It has chosen a default max line length of 88; its not clear whether this was accidental or deliberate, but 88 is a white supremacist "hidden number", so I either change it to 80 or 90, depending on whether people argue for longer lines or not :)
I notice Linus is not also suggesting a change in git commit message format from 50 chars for title, 72 for comments, both of which are derived from 80 character terminals.
Coffee is too bitter, and cannot be consumed in the quantities required for refreshment. I like a coffee occasionally, a shot of espresso or even a lungo in the morning. But to sip that swill that is filter coffee all day long like the Americans? No thanks. Similarly, I'm fat enough without adding the filth that is a Starbucks venti latte. I've always found it strange that Starbucks, a coffee company, have so many drinks that are designed to hide the flavour of the coffee.
For me, tea is a total cure-all. Hangover, queasy stomach? Nice cup of tea will make you feel better. Dehydrated? Nice big cup of tea. Cold? Big cup of tea. If you have too many coffees, you can get the jitters and not sleep all night. Too many teas, you're just flushing the loo slightly more frequently. I start each day with 3 or 4 20oz cups of tea (SportsDirect mug size, although mine is a Chewbacca mug).
This means that the guest needs to be able to "speak" DX12, which is why we pulled DX12 into Linux.
Nah, still don't buy it. For AI, you need CUDA. MS didn't need to expose DX12 API to Linux in order to do that, they just needed to insert a shim between Windows GPU driver and WSL that exposes CUDA. There's no need to expose DX12 to Linux.
MS's demo used a modified tensorflow that used DX12 API to access the GPU. Tensorflow shouldn't be doing that, it should just talk CUDA. This is Extend - "oh just use our API".
