SpaceX landed the Falcon 9 rocket used in this launch so it can be re-used.
I suspect it will be going to a museum rather than being reused.

Only if you want to see what employers think they want (which will largely be their legacy systems, combined with some bait and switch).
If you read the notes around the SO survey you'll find ~3% (IIRC) of respondents are using Rust. But a lot more of the respondents would like the opportunity to use Rust.
As P. T. Barnum allegedly said: there are plenty being born.
The website is quite "fun", eg. this "testimonial":
I plugged the BioShield Key in at work and it seems to clear the energy of the place around my desk.
One minute and a half after I plugged it, I felt something wrong disappeared in the air.
The people I work with, seems to be more happy and they laugh more. The ambiance is more serene.
Well it always amusing when someone demonstrates how much of a muppet they are.
> The main question though is, why are Powershell commands so verbose?
Because PSH is optimised for maintainable scripts, rather than for doing everything as one offs from the command line or just playing code golf.
Code golf can be fun, but if you need to fix things at 2am written by a colleague who isn't available with a whole host of managers and their managers demanding a fix, being extra clear makes things less hard.
> US$2,499 + VAT...that is a lot of money for a desktop.
But not a huge amount for a workstation. Comparisons are with Dell Precision, Mac Pro and the like. (In this space a fully loaded up NUC Pro is low end.) Consider that price includes ~$1000 for a graphics card which will look pretty more if you want FPS for your FPS, but if you need maximum quality rendering then it is cheap.
Specialist machine for those with high end requirements.
Refection is not that slow (at least after the metadata is loaded for that type: the first time is slow). Unless you are measuring the performance you are just assuming.
ASP.NET MVC uses reflection heavily, and still manages to be massively faster than Web Forms (and as pages get more complex, even more so) and yet MVC uses reflection at its core.
As with anything performance beyond the simplest code it is far more subtle than you can predict.
Because the typefaces found on mechanical typewriters were typographic horrors.
Two spaces did help readability (as did double line spacing – which was required in many cases).
But with mechanical typewriters being something for museums and hipsters, we should move on to better options.
Many people were taught two spaces, but that is because the teachers were taught that. This does not make it good.
 Outside parts of the Indian legal system IIRC.
> Double spacing, on old monospace typewriters, made it easier to tell where one sentence ends and the next begins.
More a case of when your only typeface is Courier, steps are needed to compensate,
I always liked TeX's approach: input is one space, but it detects end of sentences and puts in a slightly wider space (and then adjusts that for justification). These days with proportional typefaces a double space is too wide; this is helped by majuscule glyphs being bigger.
Reminds we of a story boardcast on (maybe RI Christmas Lecture when I was the right age... so a while ago!)
Some academic (so really a post-Grad or post-doc) had developed a really sensitive inclinometer in Aberdeen.And were confused by a not-quite 12 hour cycle in the readings when left sitting on a (very stable) surface.
Aberdeen.... built on lots of granite was moving with the tide.
A typical home router contains:
- WAN modem (or multiple for ADSL and VDSL)
- Backup WAN connection
- Multiple Wi-Fi Access points (including a guest network)
- A LAN switch
- A router between LAN, multiple Wi-Fi and main and backup WAN connections.
- NAT, Firewall, DHS, DHCP, ... fuinctions
Guest Wi-Fi only routes to/from the WAN ports (no LAN access).
Yes, a lot more than a router, but most definitely a router making choices on which port to send a packet based on which subnet it came from in addition to its destination.
Considerable more capable than early IP routers...
But this is a lift and shift: not an ERP upgrade (or replacement) so none of that should be needed.
More a case of working through all dependencies and updating them to work with a different hosting solution, While definitely non-trivial this is a much more reasonable scope for a project.
Yes they were useful, but for real troubleshooting and testing a protocol analyser was even better.
A breakout box with an attached computer that would allow you to record and show you the data being sent. Along with changes to hardware signals. For when you wanted to push things programmable to emulate another device.

"You may think it is a long way around to the chemist, but that's just peanuts to a Saturn V."
They are really really BIG! Until you want next to one you have no idea.

Also significant parts of the engineering drawings have been lost as well. So a re-start of the program would be a redesign pretty much from the ground up. The only advantage over the original program would be that it was known to work from the start.
But the biggest issue would be the kind of risks that were taken in the Apollo program are simply not accepted today.
While each micro-service may be simple, all that has happened is the complexity has been pushed up to the interactions between those micro-services (to some form or orchestration layer).
Maybe that allows Monzo to, at least now, to more easily manage that complexity. Or maybe having a greenfield development has just avoided the legacy complexity because Moizo don't have that much IT history.
Only time will tell.

While calling it
NukeTheMBRIfYouAreReallyReallyReallySure.exe miight help avoid accidents this would have to be a DOS level program... and thus rather more limited file naming.
> Can Microsoft not revoke the signature for the driver, or would that invalidate all Gigabyte drivers?
It would certainly block existing, otherwise working, drivers.
But there is another option with code signing, when the code was signed the timestamp itself should include a certificate that it is a valid timestamp for the then now. (This. in Windows, appears as a counter signature on the signature details.)
The code signing certificate can thus be invalidated from a given date by the issuing authority.
Code with a signed timestamp from before that point is still valid and passes its check. Code signed after that date, or without a signed timestamp does not.
Snuggle the zombie server up to the live one, remove the facing side panels and snake a SCSI cable from the working machine to the powered disk cage of the otherwise mostly dead server.
And it worked? Not possible, any rearrangement would need to include the requisite sacrifice to the Trickster God of SCSI Buses.
And that's for the simple cases: consumer/small office systems.
For larger customers they want long term support, specific certification of application compatibility, and so forth. This takes even longer.
As noted in the article it is starting to happen. In the case of the cloud providers, if customers start picking AMD based VMs they'll add more. IAAS and SAAS usage (where you don't choose the underlying machine) will also see use,
