they could have switched to libre office.
its a clone ? yes.
does it turn sep1 or SEP1 into a date ? no.
actually, excel does not do that either.
the spelling help ( this kind of help kills people, yes.... )
first sees SEP1, decides for you that it is SEP 1 (with a space) and then excel kicks in and says "hey, that is a date, let me help you... "
and there you have the real problem: use common word processing functions stupidly and non-context aware for anything. even in a spreadsheet's data cells....
and that indeed proves that MS doesnt give a damn. which we can fix by upgrading to something less dismal...
and here you touch the reason why AMD will get off the hook :
"This means that all the cores could end up sharing an FPU and caches, although I would expect a decent chip to give each core its own L1 cache."
- intel : yes. most of them, but not all. (i X versus Xeon xxxx )
- sparc : it depends. old stuff yes, newer stuff sometimes yes, sometimes no
- ibm POWER : no. never shared anything processing : prefetcher, predictor, fp unit, integer units: all dedicated. cost you something, but hey....
your post is accurate, apart from the left wing bullshit.
this is from a left winger:
you are right.
This Linus thing has nothing to do with left wing. there is responsible folks, and there are irresponsible folks. you will find them in every camp / religion / sectarian outfit.
Linus happens to be responsible.
to me it is Obvious that people like this mr Cook do not understand that they are toying with something that needs to work, no matter what.
Linux is running our society. your elevator, your car, your aeroplane. your power grid, your gaspipes,
whatever you can think of: some critical part is controlled by the Linux kernel.
mr Torvalds is not insulting people, but he is very explicit about their actions when they are being irresponsible about the physical safety of millions / billions of people on this planet.
that's all there is to it.
political correctnes does not cure irresponsible behaviour,
which is critical when dealing with a software system that millions of people and businesses are relying on.
It's not unthinkable that human lives might be at risk when you kill a proces in a system, although you are not quite sure it needs to be killed; quite possibly you actually never heard of the system your code is running in, let alone understand what it is doing....
Kees Cook is obviously not quite aware of the context in what he is doing. to much Pixel focused, I suppose.
have 2 clouds, not from the same outfit.
double cost, double trouble. double work. just like it Always used to be.
only the running a datacenter is what you loose, apart from a lot of cash... :-)
cloud@home would do nicely, but that depends on who you are and what you need.
accenture indeed used to be anderson consulting.
they were trying to break with the accountancy branch since the early 90's since they had to pay up being the more succesful branche to the weaker accountant brother.
in 2001 (the year of enron, or at least december...) they became finally independent.
had to pay andersen, though, quite a bit of cash. (the 15% they had put into custody, pending break away negotiations )
which was money down the drain, after all, we all found out soon after...
---199x the mainframe will disappear in 5 yrs time : NOT
--- 1999 : gartner says the datacenter is going to be windows only : NOT
--- 2002 gartner says windows server will dominate the internet NOT
--- 2003 private datacenters will disappear in the next 5 yrs NOT
-- 201x the cloud will be 30% of spending in 5 years NOT ( it's at 1.5% at the moment )
and so on, and so on......
cops only had to ask for a warrant on grounds of a reasonable suspicion, and limit it to the devices owned by the individual.
then they would have gotten away with it.
so the judge was right. " do your job" , is basically what is he is saying to the cops, "or
I will have to do mine"
and that's what he had to do.
- salvador allende: murdered, with the help of the CIA
- mossadegh, democratically elected prime minister of persia : ousted
- every head of state in europe : ( merkel, berlusconi, <-.....-> ) : spied on their conversations with anyone
- nicaragua : dead squads and the works, supported by the usa
- el salvador : same thing
- guatemala : same thing
- panama : noriega, known dictator, murderer and drug dealer. henchman of the CIA, until he got too greedy
- argentinian generals in the seventies: cia backed, murdered thousands of people
- greece military coup in the seventies: murdered thousands, backed by the CIA
the list gets on , it is boring. but please DO FORGET about the USA being a benevolent state. it is not.
- it murderes, conspires, bribes, eliminates, keeps people imprisoned without due process,
- it TORTURES with presidential approval
- it murders by proxy.
thank you for your attention.
the first number is the average number mentioned as the IT spent of the world.
the 20-30 bln is what is spent on amazon and similar.
1% of the IT spend = cloud, sort off.
so, what does the cloud not have what the not-cloud does have ?
the cloud idea has seen huge adoption. the cloud as a off the shelf product not so much when it comes to the big spenders: facebook, google, amazon itself. they run their own......
Part of the weight reduction to the Gen III Lite HMDS
involved removing one of the two installed visors (one
dark, one clear). As a result, pilots that will need to use
both visors during a mission (e.g., during transitions from
daytime to nighttime) will have to store the second visor in
the cockpit. However, there currently is not enough storage
space in the cockpit for the spare visor
this sys admin is not going to get away with his "damaging actions"
because that is what counts here.
We are all empowered to do things like updating and deleting and so on.
We are NOT empowered to do that with harmfull intent.
No authority given to any sysadmin (or cop, or pharmacist, or hairdresser (with the scissors...) was intended to allow anyone to do damage.
this guy is going to cough up the 130K usd and his sentence will be upheld.
and that's all it takes to make this law ineffective, null and laughable. especially if we, the people, start using it *always*, producing an insurmountable money-black_hole of encrypted communication.
perhaps a good idea for firefox / thunderbird & all other open source software to build it in by default.
this blaming russia is getting absurd.
but very helpfull to turn the attention away from yourself, of course.
there is not a single government in this world who is interested in a USA that's terrified by paranoia of the general public and government in unison.
there are however always folks that like to show us what they can do with a couple of million of unsecured frontdoor webcams that have been hacked through upnp because it is so handy for the home owner to see who is at his frontdoor. Secured with stdard immutable password and userid, if any at all....
