Re: Sorry, I don't understand
The magic of the cloud is you can turn off the bill. Its rented hardware with fairly active support, & clear definitions of what they do and what you do.
Plus economies scale.

I don't think it comes with no support. It comes with no test suite, presumably because it's different to the ones currently used by Linus et al. If Paragon continues to sell its version, I don't think it is in their interest that the version most people see and use is sub standard.
The flying car concept is stupid. Four man light aircraft exist at reasonable prices that require short, grass runways. VTOL does not mean you don't need a trained pilot or air traffic control. A pilots license costs 40 hours flight time and a few grand, comparable to a lorry license. planes are cheap.
VTOL is pointless for most travel, just like cars require roads and traffic lights, air travel requires runways and flight paths. I don't think that will ever change. The more people have these things the more control we will need to prevent accidents. No matter how you take off the a journey will be on controlled flight paths as soon as more than one neighbour has one. you'll be better off on the road where at least you can stop for a pee if you want to.
I have been asked to pentest as part of building new systems. In addition to pentest tools it's worth having a human take a look, try something unexpected. I have found big ol holes with more consequence than a jira ticket.
Lesson learned: people who are more concerned with _who_ secures the system and going by the book, instead of how secure it is, should be be given no more responsibility than the cleanliness of a public toilet.
So at best, a no-op, and at worst, a false sense of security.
also breaking dns, e.g. dns load balancing or perd hacks, local blacklists etc.
dns/https is a powergrab, as soon as mozilla made it acceptable Google do it. so most of the world just get another wall around their Internet and a single point of contact for your local cops.
Latent Microsoft hate: left over from when they had they had the worlds worst agressive and outright illegal business practices.
Relax, its Microsofthate not Googlelove.
Its sparks and smoke from something M$ extinguished. We are many that know that Wordstar was the superior product and the ubiquity of Markdown is the living proof of this fact.
We shall never forget. We shall never forgive.

I've been on some excelent ones. In Finland they start with a shot of something toxic as you get on the bus. Games, relax, chat, booze and an opportunity to get naked.
Across the company the rule is get together, apply food and booze.
A team that has broken bread is significantly more productive. IMHO
No rules says you cant live on a planet if you have to wear a suit outside.
I personally am ill equiped for a sunny day or a winter's night on this planet without some protection against the natural environment.
I suspect we will make the moon and mars habitable in some ways, as we make this planet unbearable without protection outside.
Word. I'd prefer to pulled out of the water by a well funded RNLA than a well funded death squad.
The use of drones in emergencies and use of military surveilance at protests are two unrelated questions despite the fact that the ministry of truth would have us think otherwise.
When military kit is the best for civvy use, you paint it orange.
First responder organizations have used UAS to search for lost children, bullshit, bullshit, bullshit, and many other use cases which justify the name Predator such as shooting "hellfire" missiles at people from the comfort of a bunker.
Its crazy that armed people dont understand that their presence is a threat.
A representative republic is (meant to be) a representative democracy.
Still a democracy.
What you actually have in the states is rather less democratic than a representative republic ought to be, not because its a republic, but because the democracy has been corrupted, by Republicans arguing with Democrats.
Schemaless can reduce the complexity. new_att might be null, but if you add it to an existing relational db it will be nullable too.
We have a nightmare changing the schema every golive. It takes downtime.
I agree with your tx data statement, I find many systems have a couple of core requirements where the money is that need to be acid tx and almost all the rest is locked into a complex multi-table schema because of that.
"As the number and type of databases and data sources incorporated into modern applications has exploded over the last decade,"
I wish. We have one big iron/host and a fat db2 for everything we do.
However even at 4.4 mongodb has gaps in reliability and write locking that make it hard to justify even for less important data. Maybe in 5.0?
