While this is true, nasa missed an opportunity to design the solarsystem's most bling helipad.

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?
By design, snap apps have no access to /etc.
They live in their own little world, but instead of a normal chroot, they are splatted all over the standard Linux filesystem layout. With other bits mounted hither and thither.
Its a mess, and subject to change with each release.
Canonical have a revenue stream.
Trouble with lock-in is you can lock yourself in. Microsoft locked people to Windows Server and then found out it is a poor approach for containers: ended up selling Linux on Azure and lost a lot of customers to Aws while they got up to speed.
Canonical would do well to make sure they dont complicate things for whatever the next big Linux shift is. I suspect zerocopy is going to be big, it can significantly improve performance provided you stay in one kernel. If someone can find a way to zerocopy data across containers, in theory you could have data pass through a firewall, nginx, your app tier, into the database and onto the filesystem, without copying it once instead of copying it 8 times.
Many things are impossible in Windows because you dont have the source. Code and drivers must be signed by Microsoft. To run you own code on your own PC.
Getting root on many Apple OSes is forbidden.
Same for AIX, and other comercial Unix.
With Linux, given time, all is possible.
Its not too complicated but it is an annoyance.
I want /etc/hosts, /etc/resolv.conf, /etc/nsswitch.conf, /etc/rc.local and all the standard stuff to work. The heavy lifting is done in the kernel. All they need to do is leave it alone.
Its getting harder to make Ubuntu behave like Linux.
Changing distro for me entails a lot of hacking bash. Installing Ubuntu, then uninstalling netplan, systemd, lxd and snapd seemed easier, but my next build is not going to be Ubuntu.
So does a folder full of libs, if needs be, a chroot, no need for snap nonsense.
I'm happy to see everyone is agreed that snap is awful. Ubuntu are forcing something, Linux people like simple, and we like choice.
Rarely see 100% upvotes in el reg, someone should send this comment stream to Ubuntu in the hope they back off.
I dont mind that snap exists but forcing people to use it, shows how bad it is.
You can't get a non snap app in Ubuntu app store. You have to sell you soul and say goodbye to everyday stuff like /etc access. I tried. Once. Never again.
The idea that its hard to maintain snap and .deb for chromium is a straight up lie. Snap packaging is hard, (they keep changing the rules) packaging .debs is trivial. Speaking from experiece packaging chromium.
"But at no point in any of this have I needed to mention the colour of anybody's skin. "
Being colour blind is generally noble, but it didn't slip anyone else's attention that the knee was white, and the neck was black.
You need to be careful.
Until everyone is happily colourblind, you still need to highlight action that appears racist: in the US in 2020, it may not be, but it probably is.
I still cant believe Trump came out and said "I'm with the fascists".
Obviously, he has made up the involvment of the antifascists in this, and is name calling, but...
However racist the white majority are, they might not rally behind the term Fascist.
@the_real_antifa should re-brand as the antinazi-league: see if Trump is dumb enough to come out as pro-nazi.
I'm not saying greed does not exist. Or that taking something that is not yours is not theft. I'm saying the motivation for the riot that precedes looting is anger. Not greed, or some Christian notion of evil.
I'm not justifying it, I'm explaining it.
If you insult someone, and they punch you in face, its wrong to justify your insult with the punch. Its stupid to insult them again.
A riot is that on a macro scale.
When OP says "I think rent-a-mob doesn't care about the black life" if you defend that
a) you are clearly incorrect
b) you need to ask yourself why you think this
Why is it important that to find that video? What does it prove? To whom?
IMHO Looting is about momentarily taking back control.
Its not so much, I want to have that iphone, as I want the feeling of empowerment that comes with _taking_ that iphone.
It is far from a rational decision.
A politician that blames the individual, does not know his trade. (Or is is lying)
Greed can be the motivation for a crime.
In a riot the motivation is wrath.
Video everywhere is going to change the game even without the video being leaked by anon ops.
White guy blatantly walking into a protest pointing an assault rifle at people and open carrying a pistol and its just not possible to pull "we have no proof" line with current technology.
Its not whats seen thats important now, its what ignored.
Everyone knows, that everything is known. All miscarriages of justice are known to be corruption. There is no room left for plausable deniability.
Cummings didn't bother to produce a convincing lie.
This transition from hiding corruption, to blatantly ignoring it, is likely to make people mad.
You are a Muppet if you put your apps in Microsoft controlled "package manager".
This is an AppStore play. They want to take 30% of your apps profits like Apple do.
Otherwise they would not have needed to, ahem, "write their own" .
If a PM doesn't support mirrors in version 0.1, its a scam.
