Re: "Discarded"

Change, is life. And in Tech change is expected. We move on.

True to an extent. But when that change takes something that was entirely free, individual and democratic, and consolidates it into the hands of a few all-powerful corporations, it leaves a decidedly bitter taste.

And these corporations become single points of failure. If Office 365 or Google were to suffer a major outage, then so would all of the western economies. They are that prolific.

You think the UK coronavirus outbreak was bad? Just wait till winter: Study shows test-and-trace system is failing

COVID is nothing compared to being hacked to death with a machete over the last tin of beans.

Given that transmission rates are supposed to be extremely low for those without symptoms, and symptoms are extremely rare in the young, we should NEVER HAVE CLOSED THE SCHOOLS.

Instead, we should have told everyone over 65 or with a vulnerable health condition to isolate. The vast majority of these people are retired, so it would have posed no problem for them or for the economy. The young people should have been told to stay well away from old people, carry on working, and to isolate only if they developed symptoms. Compensation should have been capped at £1k/month instead of 2.5k to disincentivise older people from catching the thing recklessly. Don't close the pubs, don't incentivise healthy people to skive off work, don't close down travel.

The more young people who catch the virus and gain immunity, the less chance it then has to cause death once the old and/or borked folks emerge from isolation.

Yes, due to unavoidable transmission in edge cases this would have resulted in greater death rates amongst old and otherwise already-dying people. But it would not have screwed the economy and burnt all of the UK's cash reserves just ahead of Brexit, which could pose a much greater threat than Covid. But our hand-wringing, Elf'n'Safety, 'retrospective accountability' culture has meant that we focused everything on minimising deaths, when we should have been maximising stability and minimising long-term socio-economic harm.

You say it's inhumane to have a wagon with someone shouting Bring out yer Dead! But just wait until the economy has crashed to the point where we find ourselves in civil war, or on the wrong side of WWIII, or both.

You have no idea how far inhumanity can go when the majority of people are starving.

decrypt on access

>It wouldn't be possible since the malware would then need to be installed on every single computer in the firm since otherwise it couldn't decrypt the files transparently.

Wouldn't it still be possible if you have an infected fileserver?

Especially one like we had at work - a bunch of Windows Server instances running under Hyper-V, on a big, monolithic host; with the Hyper-V host being the thing connected to a vast storage array on SAN, which is itself regularly backed up.

If the Hyper-V host were infected, then you and your backups are toast. But can still decrypt-on-access until the backups are flushed

This Hyper-V host had our domain controller, DNS server, various network drives, our Confluence internal wiki, JIRA, Bitbucket (GitHub style repository), Bamboo (CI/CD)..

Yeah, exactly. That's where this all started: Brexit.

The highly cynical borderline conspiracy-theorist nutjob in me says that this has all been a very clever ploy by Russia to weaken the west. They organised Brexit via a very sneaky social media psyop campaign, they possibly organised Trump through similar subterfuge, and now they want China and the West to start a war.

Re: I am obviously a horrible person and possibly racist...

Yes, it's a sonic sin.

If only audio files were distributed as the raw microphone inputs along with a DSP settings file so that all mixing and signal processing could be done (and reconfigured) at the listener's end.

Even mobile phones are powerful enough to do the required mixing and DSP in real time.

I sometimes wish that on TV, background noise tracks could be broadcast separately from dialogue, for example.

Yes I know that no recording ever clips, but in the old days, this was done by someone looking at a VU meter, asking the guitarist to twang really loudly, and then adjusting the gain so that it doesn't go too far into the red. The gain knob is then left in the same place for the duration of the performance/recording. There is no automatic adjustment of that gain knob in real time by some software to try to make the whole track sound as loud as possible.

That's what I meant by 'recordings should obey the superposition principle'. Your mixer should produce a linear sum of all the input channels, at different (but time-invariant) amplifications. That way it can be decomposed into its original sources, by my ears. If the different channels keep changing their volume based on what else is going on, I find something else to listen to because I find that nauseating.

Shove that up your side-chain and smoke it.

Re: I am obviously a horrible person and possibly racist...

No, you should be apologising for flattening off the peaks of your audio to make it sound "louder" instead of just choosing a level for each channel and sticking to it, so that the final mix doesn't "clip" in the loudest part, even if that sounds "quiet" to you. Good recordings should obey the superposition principle. Turn off your compressors and limiters.

Pisses me off when what should be loud drum beats instead seem to "subtract" from the rest of the music (i.e. the music fades away either side of the drum beat) because some twat "audio engineer" thought it sounded louder that way.

REALLY pisses me off when stations like Classic FM try to play something like the 1812 overture, and due to the compressors and limiters they use, at the very end it's nothing but a pathetic grey mush as the orchestra is supposed to reach its fortissimo peak and the cannons fire.

If I want it louder I'll turn it up. Go away. You ARE a horrible person. But not a racist.

Re: Do non African slaves not matter ?

But TBH, I think this sort of thing is something that only the Gooogles, Amazons, Microsofts and Apples of this world have the ability to implement efficiently (after all, most of their code is closed source anyway, and snap decisions can always be made by diktat). While it severely hurts open source having this sort of moral panic in public, causing a schism amongst their developers, over something that no-one really cares about.

Thin end of the wedge?

While I support the BLM movement, I think going back and refactoring a huge codebase to remove banned words that were used without any malign connotation, could have ununtended consequences. Such as serious bugs being introduced into the code, or API compatibility issues.

For example, grepping the linux kernel headers (just the headers, which all have API compatibility implications) there are 1645 lines containing the word "master" and 1550 lines containing the word "slave". Think of all the code reviews needed to expunge just two banned terms arising from today's moral panic. What about all the others, and what about tomorrow's moral panic?

I highly doubt that anyone was intending any malice when they used these terms, no more than the inventor of the "kill" command, which "kills" a process along with all of its "children" had murderous intent. Or perhaps we should expunge that too, out of solidarity for victims of mass murder.

I really don't see how borking the Linux kernel helps anyone?

How about doing something real and tangible to address poverty, race and class inequality instead? Donate to education charities, support minority ethnic inclusion in tech outreach programs, vote Labour...

Virtue signaling is one thing, but imposing it on the world's most well-established codebase is both worthless and self-defeating.

Loudness War: @Androdgynous_Cow_Herd, I challenge you to a thread!

I submit that "Audio Engineer" is a parasitic non-profession that should be eradicated. Along with PPI claim agents, ambulance chasers and telephone sanitsers (ok maybe telephone sanitisers could be necessary for the time being). And that "Mastering" of audio tracks should be banned (for reasons unrelated to slavery)

See: previous off-topic discussion

Ideally, every audio track sold should include all source recordings (mic inputs etc), using software at the listener's end to do the mixing and DSP, with a text-based settings file for the suggested "master" which the listener can change according to his/her tastes or mood.

More practically, I think that mixing of audio source material in a non-linear way (such as compressors or limiters designed to maximise "loudness" of the overall track, and "side-chains" designed to maximise or flatten the loudness of a subset of the sources) should be banned.

While I appreciate that for some it may be an artistic effect, it is also (mathematically) a one-way transformation, a bit like one of Damien Hurst's bisected cows. OK from one angle, grotesque from another.

Therefore, I ask that recording artists please supply us with the living cow, and we can chop it in half with a chainsaw ourselves if we choose. Stop paying quack "audio engineers" to butcher it before we can even hear it moo.

Hahaha, that's what I thought about Stephen Elop (see post below)

You'd have thought so..

Microsoft exec joins as new CEO of Nokia. Immediately announces that Nokia will be ditching the successful line of Linux (Debian)-based phones (N900, N950) and Maemo OS that they spent the last 5+ years developing - it would have been a serious competitor to iOS and Android.. N900 was the best phone you could wish for.

Also they would be ditching their Symbian platform, and most people working on Phones for Nokia would be laid off. From now on, Nokia will only sell Windows Phones, because that's the future.

Anyone would think that Microsoft were trying to kill off two competitors to Windows Mobile, by driving Nokia into the ground with an inside man as their CEO, and as a triple-whammy, dump their share price so they could buy them at a bargain price.

Shurely that would be illegal, until they did it.

Re: Facial recognition works 100% of the time

^ This.

Very much hits the nail.

Facial recognition is "just good enough" that it can be used as a smokescreen for a police state.

It basically says 96% of us are suspected ne'er do-wells. The 4% being those who fall into the statistical category of "highly affluent white folk who might be in a position to sue the police if falsely accused".

The 96% are then subject to the individual police officer's prejudices and ulterior motives, and if you happen to be in a category who probably doesn't have the resources to defend themselves adequately, then you can be convicted of whatever the hell they want.

Trebles all round at Classic FM then! Sucks to be a new national DAB station like Union JACK in that case.

I seem to remember multiple Beeellions being involved in the 2004 analogue TV spectrum auction..

Presumably Vodafone et al must have realised by now that 200MHz wavelength is a bit long for a handset (unless they wanted it for backhaul) but while switching off analogue TV made sense with the compression ratio that digital video affords, doing the same for radio is and always was stupid. It occupies very little bandwidth anyway, and the costs outweigh the benefits in every area. e.g. people listen to radio on the move, whereas TVs are usually static, so they don't need to re-establish a link. Once the antenna is tweaked enough to work, it usually stays that way.

Whereas driving around with a DAB radio in the car going on and off is beyond annoying.

INEQUALITY IS THE PROBLEM, NOT RACISM

It's epitomised by the phrase "something must be seen to be done"!

As if being seen to be doing "something" is more important than what is actually done.

In contrast with the US (which in many parts is actually racist), the UK has very little racism in its culture. The real problem in the UK is classism- plutocratic inequality - discrimination against the poor - the ability of the super-rich to make themselves richer at the expense of the poor, and discrimination against anyone from a poor background, preventing any upward social mobility.

This move by MS does absolutely nothing to address racism - instead it continues to sow division among the middle and lower classes, letting them fight among themselves while the super rich get richer and yet more powerful.

Re: MS SOP: Embrace, Extend, Extinguish.

Exactly.

While conspiring with Intel to create a secure-boot spec that makes it very difficult in some/most cases (especially corporate environments) to run Linux natively, Microsoft have conveniently taken much of what makes Linux great and integrated it into their own paid-for shitty spyware OS. Great news, for Microsoft shareholders, but I can imagine a lot of the open-source devs who created the whole GNU/Linux ecosystem being a bit upset about this.

The reason I and people like me use Linux is not about money, it's about control and a sense of (healthy, I say) paranoia. We have a massive distrust of software vendors like Microsoft, who with their inscrutable closed-source code, snoop and slurp, and push unknown updates onto you, all the while collecting a hefty tax. It really is not about the money, far from it: If there were an OS I could truly trust, I would happily pay for it. But as it happens, the only OS I can trust is free, in both senses.

Without a cap, that's possible. The only reason it doesn't happen already on the uncapped TLDs is because the main ones are still capped.
