Re: Lifting in space
Yeah, yeah, you know what we mean: it's fixed.

Actually, the plugin is pretty simple: it checks to see if there is cut'n'pasted code in a file from other parts of the project (or maybe even just the same file).
If that happens, it's generally a sign of poor programming, so it may suggest you refactor (try again). I've tweaked the headlines to reflect this.
Not all hospital beds are the same: different wards, different levels of care, etc. I don't even have to assume that figure you gave is correct.
The point is: hospitals are at near capacity -- around 95% in the UK this week – and a surge in COVID-19 cases will push them over the edge, and people will be denied or given limited care. That's why we vaccinate: so we don't clog up the health system, and put others in danger, with a mostly solved problem.
"The NHS was put on a crisis footing as hospitals in England were told to discharge as many patients as possible while estimated daily Omicron cases hit 200,000 and the variant claimed its first life in the UK." (Source)
"Hotels are being turned into temporary care facilities staffed with workers flown in from Spain and Greece to relieve rising pressure on NHS hospital beds." (Source)
Keep on movin' those goal posts.
In fact, keep on moving them all the way out the door, down the street, over the road, across the bridge, all the way into a pharmacy or a doctor's office, all the way over to the uncomfortable chair where you can sit down and get a jab and move on.
Personally speaking, I don't care how spreadable it is if it's been reduced, through vaccination or mutation, to literally nothing more than a bad cold -- no long-term effects, no risk of death.
I can put up with a cold.
"COVID case rates among the fully vaccinated are now higher than those in the unvaccinated"
I don't know what point you're trying to make here but if it's what I think it is, you're off base. The same report you quote says: "Comparing case rates among vaccinated and unvaccinated populations should not be used to estimate vaccine effectiveness against COVID-19 infection."
I think everyone who reads The Reg knows what the nuclear football is in the context of the vice president of the United States of America. It's been referenced on TV, and in movies, articles, and books.
It's like we don't have to explain what the FBI is. Everyone's seen the X Files.
Yeah it's an error that happens when a sentence is partially edited and the rest is left unchanged, accidentally.
It's a process oversight rather than a misunderstanding of the language. Don't forget to hit the corrections link or email corrections@ if you spot something wrong.
"SARS-CoV-2 is an engineered virus"
Please don't start taking opinions lifted from Facebook or some idiot TV channel, filing off the serial numbers, and posting them here as fact.
Don't be so defensive: if someone raided a bank vault and made off with diamonds and then sold them for $2m in cash, then the article would say the thief made $2m from stolen diamonds.
If someone runs a scam and launders people's online vouchers into Bitcoins, then the article would say just that.
At some point, usually at the top, we have to mention the money and assets involved. In this case, the teen bought BTC using his ill-gotten gains.
And yet here we are.
Your other comment was rejected for anti-vax disinformation. You said: "the vaccine does not prevent someone acquiring and subsequently transmitting COVID. This is particularly true of the overwhelmingly dominant Delta variant."
Which is disingenuous bollocks. The CDC says:
"Infections with the Delta variant in vaccinated persons potentially have reduced transmissibility than infections in unvaccinated persons, although additional studies are needed."
Not quite the picture you painted. Yeah you can still get the virus and spread it if vaccinated, but the vaccine is not totally powerless in this situation; there are signs it has an effect and we'll know for sure with more science.
On the one hand, we're trying to lightly moderate these forums so people can argue it and figure it all out without us policing individual points. On the other hand, we can't flame Facebook for spreading anti-vax nonsense and then turn a total blind eye to it on our own boards.
but but but what about...
It doesn't matter. Go complain to The Register equivalent in teaching or nursing if you think there's a problem there.
We're here to raise the bar in IT and engineering, not taking a look at another industry and thinking, "well if they're dropping the ball, I guess we should as well."
That's the whole problem, anon. There is usually something stopping them. Assumptions, biases, etc.
That's why it's called equal opportunity. People should be given equal chances to succeed. If you suck at cooking, or coding, or bricklaying, you shouldn't get the job. But it shouldn't be assumed you can't cook, code, or build. If you have an industry that actively or passively puts up barriers to entry for certain people, that's a problem.
Just to clarify: from what's been reported, part of the generator fractured causing fuel to leak. The root cause of the leak, and subsequent failure of the generator, was what eluded them for a few months: they eventually found the break.
The ship was reliant on the generator to get through rough conditions; solar power wouldn't be enough. So without the genny, it had to go back home.
"the US had no legal authority over what happened"
Given that it apparently involved American HP IT gear going into Iran and some part of $100m in sanctions-busting financial transactions, keywords US dollars, Uncle Sam disagrees.
FWIW she pleaded not guilty in a virtual hearing with a NY court on Friday, though did not dispute the accuracy of the US prosecution's claims made against her.
Bit of a 'agree to disagree' situation, perhaps, to resolve this increasingly ugly situation.
Don't forget, Huawei's CEO was banging on about how he wants foreign scientists settling in China to work on 6G in cities that look just like home. Kinda hard to persuade people to come into the mainland if they risk end up being pawns in the next political fight Beijing finds itself in.
"The fact that the creator of the inventions in this case was a machine is no impediment to patents being granted to this applicant."
Is exactly what the Lord Justice Birss wrote (97.v). While the other LJs are arguing the law clearly says a patent inventor has to be a person or persons, LJ Birss is arguing it doesn't matter either way for the reasons given.
It's amusing that Loongson's architecture is MIPS64-RISC-V fan fiction. FWIW it's thought Loongson will eventually get on board with RISC-V but it's not a given.
Counterpoint seems to have based its view on that "over 70% of RISC-V premier members" are in China.
Windows 11 runs, officially, on the specified Intel and AMD x86 processors and Qualcomm's Arm-compatible system-on-chips.
If you try to run Windows 11 on anything other than the specified Intel, AMD, or Qualcomm chips, it's unsupported.
The Apple M1 is thus unsupported, with or without a hypervisor like Parallels.
It appears Microsoft considers anything outside the specified x86 + Qualcomm chipsets is unsupported, so yes, even W11 within a Parallels or VMware hypervisor on an M1 Mac would be unsupported.
Edit: We specifically asked about Windows 11 on Parallels on an M1 and were told this is an "unsupported scenario."
What happened was this: Parallels 17 on M1 ran W11 Insider build. Then W11 stopped working as it declared the hypervisor unsupported hardware. Then Parallels 17.0.1 came out and W11 started running on it again. We asked Microsoft if this setup is supported or not, and MS said W11 on Parallels on an M1 is an "unsupported scenario". Parallels didn't say what it changed to make the OS work.
So in fact, we asked the question you wanted. Job done.
An internet user was under fire today after likening Register readers to an "online riot."
In a wide-ranging attack on those who seek out information online and post comments, Imhotep suggested they were easily manipulated by the media. The answer? Censorship.
"Let them moderate the comments," said Imhotep.
DO YOU AGREE? ARE YOU A RIOTER? Like, subscribe, follow, share, click, unclick, retweet and comment below!!!11~
FWIW the study is basically about $100m+ software companies (like Microsoft, IBM, etc) and there was no focus on games developers.
The study looked at the correlation of piracy explicitly mentioned by companies in their paperwork filed to the SEC, and subsequent R+D expenditures and IP creation by those companies. Sure, other factors come into play and it's not 1-1 causal, but that’s a given for this kind of investigation.
It’s not a medical study looking to see if aspartame causes cancer or something like that where the causation is the key thing.
And FWIW, the study was about piracy affecting IP investment and indirectly revenue; it’s not a reversible operation where IP necessarily prevents piracy.
Yeah sure, though that MITM may not lead to RCE like the poisoned PAC can.
"An attacker cant chose the code to execute."
They can -- see the advisory and the example in the article. It's not a slam-dunk RCE (it's clear you have to somehow feed a poisoned proxy config to the app) but it's pretty gnarly if you manage to pull it off.
I normally don't like hyping up super obscure bugs (unless there's a fun educational element to it) that aren't going to be exploited in the real world. But this one felt like either a near-miss or something to flag up to developers.
If the filter works, you'll find Copilot won't autocomplete your code if it involves the forbidden words, or if the source uses them.
Your IDE will still work, but you'll probably find that Copilot doesn't want to play ball. You might get away with it if the words are in data files the IDE/Copilot can't inspect.
As I understand it!
