Re: One Time Pads.
Or... you could publish it somewhere _and_ make a stink about it not being you but secretly tell people that it is you! Plausible deniability and misdirection...

That may be so, but people tend to use the term "politics" nowadays for all sorts of things. You think police shouldn't shoot black people? Can't talk about that at work, it's too political. Think women should be paid as much as men? Sounds like a political issue to me.
Apart from that's not what autopilot means. Autopilot is a pilot aid, designed to take the mundane tasks away from the pilot. Eg the "cruising" part of the flight. It doesn't change altitude because of turbulence, it doesn't route around weather, it just flies in the direction you've told it to.
Hence why 2 pilots are still required on commercial flights.
What Tesla are marketing _is_ autopilot, it's just no one outside of aviation seems to realise how limited autopilot actually is
I think it was Tomb Raider or one of the other "early" PC games on CD that had an intentionally "corrupt" file system record. Basically the file table referenced the same parts of the CD multiple times so that the 650mb disk "appeared" to contain a couple of gb.
You couldn't copy it using the standard software as they didn't do a "byte for byte" copy but tried re-creating the filesystem... and there wasn't enough space on the new CD!
It's the IT department's responsibility to back up certain locations, it's the user's responsibility to make sure that they save the files to those locations
It's unfortunate that they've not configured OneDrive properly, because there's a tickbox that effectively says "store the desktop in OneDrive" which would have been a safety-net in this scenario
Internet radio is quite tolerant of drop outs. It's buffered and delivered over TCP for the most part, so as long as you can receive data probably about 20% of the time you won't notice any gaps. It's also only heavy in one direction, and tolerant of latency
I would imagine that it has to go through many layers of planning because it will have to have both the accessibility and internationalisation updated, and any documentation for it would also need changing. Not impossible by any stretch, but I doubt it could be done with less than a person-week of resources, and they're too busy removing useful functionality out of Control Panel to update legacy UI
Most of what you've described is already there :)
There are 2 standards (because why only have one...) and Tesla (like Apple) do their own thing. The car won't move while it's plugged in, and the car and charger negotiate the amount of power to draw using very small amounts of power until the connection is considered safe. The cables also lock at both ends so can't be disconnected while live.
Daytime work charger or cheap overnight home charger is all most will need
As someone who's done a long day of driving in an EV, I can say that range and charge speed are probably already there for 95% of cases. The car I've got will easily do 200 miles from 100%, and (using the most conservative numbers) does about 3 miles per kWh. A lot of the motorway charge points now are 50kW/hour, going all the way up to Tesla's 250kW/hour. Sadly there's usually only 2-3 at each service station, which is the real risk at the moment.
Did 400 miles in a day the other week, and ended up spending a total of 80 minutes at service stations plugged in. All in 15/20 minute bursts, because by the time you've gone to the toilet, got a coffee etc you've added another 50 miles of range. If you stop for lunch it would be even more.
Unless you microwave relay between towers (which, if you set up in a mesh fashion, may actually be more efficient than running fibre everywhere) or Starlink back to a central location
As you're going to be running power to a base station anyway it's not going to cost that much more to run connectivity, and it a 5G station can do 200 homes (for example) then that's 199 fewer locations to run fibre to
@maker - the problem is that BT can easily sell it as a loss if Openreach make profit on it, because they're all part of the same group. If it costs Openreach £10 to provide it, they sell it to "everyone" (BT and competitors) for £50 but the end customer usually only pays £30 for it:
Competitor - Not worth buying because they lose £20
BT - Sells it to the customer for £30, pays Openreach £50 (loses £20)
OR - Sells it to BT for £50, only costs £10 (gains £40)
The BT/OR group is still £20 up, and the competition don't get to use it because it's "not economically viable"
Compare the same scenario where Openreach sell the service for £20:
Competitor - Purchases it and makes a £10 gain
OR - Sells it to competitor and makes a £10 gain
BT - Purchases it and makes a £10 gain
OR - Sells it to BT and makes a £10 gain
BT/OR is actually £30 up in this scenario, but now the competitor has an advantage too because they don't have to build their own network. Additionally, they probably have to reduce their retail prices (so let's say they both knock £5 off to be competitive), now BT/OR is in exactly the same position but dealing with twice as many customers for the same margin.
BT/OR are hoping that a higher price will keep more customers on their BT network basically, and let them charge more for it
I suppose "independent" was used in the wrong context there, which may have confused things further. ".NET" at the moment covers a large number of things:
* "Full" .NET Framework that ships with Windows
* NETCore (soon to just be .NET 5)
* Mono / Xamarin (Blazor used to be based on this version, it may not be anymore)
What I was trying to say is that if you consider .NET to be the runtime components, then .NET is indeed being sent to the browser. In the same way that in the example you've given you ship .NET with your app to the server. Just because it's not installed separately doesn't mean that it's not there, it's just bundled in alongside the app.
As much as NETCore runs on both Windows and Linux, it's different files (the framework pieces) that you deploy alongside your app. In this regard, WebAssembly is just another target that the framework runs on top of.
Hope that makes sense. It's tricky to explain without pictures, and I couldn't find an existing article that links it all together.
Depends what you mean by ".NET". Technically it's entirely the opposite of what you said, because Blazor is a completely independent implementation of the .NET runtime and base libraries. So it's .NET (in terms of the standard / platform) but If your definition of .NET is "the stuff that ships with Windows" then you're correct as it's entirely different.
I'd recommend this video from 2015 - https://channel9.msdn.com/Events/Ignite/2015/BRK3186. 15 seconds in they say it's running on 65,000 servers (but that includes SharePoint I think).
Deployments are done in batches (about 54 minutes in), monitored for results and then continued. That Means that problems won't always affect everybody, and may affect different people (if the order of the batches is rotated).
Because the images have a hash based on their contents it doesn't matter _where_ you pull them down from as long as you've validated the hash. They're effectively signed (unless there's a weakness/collision discovered).
On the flip side of this, they should be the easiest thing in the world to cache, because you're downloading them based on a request that indicates the contents that you want to download. The image for a particular hash will _never_ change, so your caching can be based off LRU and you're sorted.
Even Microsoft have worked out how to do this, and their build agents have a certain number of popular images cached _on the build server itself_.
My first gig was an Access 2000 database on a co-ax token ring network...! A switch to 100mb Ethernet, separate the screens into an MDE and the backend to SQL and they were well on their way! For a small business, as a front-end to a "real" database it's a great product. Centralised backup and easy for admins to modify (but not end users)
If you absolutely rely 100% on something and it costs your business when that something is not available, then buy a service that costs more than $5/month. You get what you pay for.
We're not being had, because if email is down for a few hours we do something else. Everyone has desktop Outlook installed so can still reply to the backlog that they already have, we have documents sync'd to our desktop so can work offline etc.
