Re: git broke English
So, do we also get double-plus-pull and double-plus-unpull?

IIUC if Hyper-V is turned on, then Workstation will use the HV hypervisor instead.
I now upgraded and am looking at my VMs with dismay. Watching screen refreshes is like continental drift. Tested with CentOS 7, CentOS 8, Catalina Hackintosh and Windows 7 VMs. It's like my CPU was converted into a Pentium 90 and my GPU is... gone.
I'll give a pass on the Hackintosh, it's not supported after all, but the others?!
Blaming US sanctions may just be a convenient excuse.
There are now daily articles in the Aussie media (only today in The Age) about Aus companies that are fronts for the PLA and the CCP which have been buying up medical and other supplies en masse long before China admitted to the epidemic. Showing that they lied about when this started becoming critical, but also contributing to the shortage of some things like face masks here.
It will be interesting whether there will be a reckoning when this is all over, putting a severe damper on Winnie the Pooh's global ambitions or whether it's back to business as usual.
It's been a few years, but one thing that kept me away from a fully unified approach was when you had to do any kind of animation - and I'm only talking 2D not even 3D here.
I still ended up using things like SpriteKit, so Forms just wasn't an option and I still ended up with separate codebase for iOS and Android.
SkiaSharp was in its infancy - for me it simply would not play nice. Has that improved?
So true for many other languages as well.
"pip install ..." one package - and your screen fills with pages full of dependency downloads.
I've started putting all those into requirements.txt just for my own sanity, version locked inside a virtualenv or container.
And hope like hell those version dependencies remain available. Apart from forking every single one of them, I'm not sure what you *can* do. Rewrite the lot? :-|
I'm hightly confused. The article stated 4 solar masses as lower limit for a black hole.
Yet I had learned - and a quick glance at Wikipedia confirms - that the Chandrasekhar limit is 1.4 solar masses, which would first lead to a neutron star and at around 2.3 even neutrons couldn't resist and would collapse to a black hole (though centrifugal force by rotation could forestall this for a while).
A finding of a 3 solar mass black hole wouldn't contradict that and I couldn't immediately find anything (it's Friday afternoon beer o'clock so there's limits) that this has changed.
Did I miss something?
I'd have to watch that episode again (In the Shadow of Zha'ha'dum(sp?) part 2, IIRC? can't believe I can remember that without looking it up), but I always thought it *was* indeed Kosh, whose "soul" had somehow entered or become part of Sheridan after the former's assassination.
I thought the voice was distinctly Kosh and not Lorien. Seeing as I have them all on VHS(!) still, it'll be a bit of an effort to check (yes, I bet I could get them all from less legal venues).
Well, a close approximation of that does exist.
It generally costs at least 5 times more, though. It's called business or first class. You still have some rights up there, instead of "you get what you paid for" in cattle, you ... OK, you "pay and at least get something".
Generally also far lower likelihood of having any persons younger than 12. The business (wo)men tend to quietly keep to themselves. The odd honeymooners shelling out on their frequent flyer miles and too busy with each other.
No risk of DVT. Flight attendants whose smiles *do* occasionally touch their eyes instead of being plastered on. The, you get those nice little bags with earplugs in them, for when you forgot your own or left them in the check-in bags.
Having to fly very long distance at the least every 2, but more like every year, I can fortunately save up and spend a long time shopping for the right deal. It's amazing what you can dig up in the byzantine airline pricing schemes.
Exactly my thought when I now saw this kind of insurance advertised on billboards around Melbourne.
Not being in the charity business, insurance companies will surely have this calculated on how it makes them money. I dare say the exemptions and exclusions as to what measures you're expected to take to demonstrate "due diligance" before they pay out would make a mainframe (*) specialist blanch.
(*) semi-randomly picking an area generally considered to follow very high standards for security, resilience, availability, etc etc etc.
Like the vicious foaming-at-the-mouth hatred of OO programming that suddenly seems to be filling my tech news feeds? I mean, sure let’s discuss shortcomings and failed promises of OO, but some of those seem to rank OO somewhere worse than genocide and child abuse and kicking puppies combined.
Isn't the NSA already the largest employer of mathematicians in the US?
If so, go for it! Shirley if it's so easy, you can walk up to a bunch of them and say "make it so, that we may make this magical new encryption the enforced standard for the world!".
Why wait for all those recalcitrant corporations and furriners, hmm? Stop banging on about it, develop this silver bullet and awestrike us with this mathematical marvel!
Last year the AWS Toolkit was announced with much fanfare at re:invent (during the big keynote, no less). It was announced for the Jetbrains suite who had a booth and were exuding smug all over.
It came out for Visual Studio Code quite a bit later.
Since then, the VSC version works beautifully, whereas the Jetbrains version seems to be the mentally unstable red-headed stepchild. Getting worse all the time, with bug fixes apparently every ice age or so. Jetbrains simply go "not our problem, bother Amazon", even when the *same version* of AWS TK works in one Pycharm release and starts throwing exceptions left, right and centre in the next.
While the VSC version just plugs along.
Starting to wonder why I'm paying for a Jetbrains subscription - looks like I can increasingly get the same thing for free by switching to Code.
You now actually have to go out of your way to leave an S3 bucket unprotected. Mind-boggling.
Because some code monkey can't figure out a bucket policy and/or IAM role they just click on the "public" button (*).
(*) button because they can only use AWS via console and can't figure out the CLI/API.
Halfway surprised Cloudera still exists *and* had the pocket change to grab Hortonworks.
Apparently their financials aren't even that bad: https://investors.cloudera.com/news-and-events/news/press-release-details/2019/Cloudera-Reports-Fourth-Quarter-and-Fiscal-Year-2019-Financial-Results/default.aspx
Who's still using Hadoop? At my last gig, we were phasing it out, left, right and centre.
I'd presume they are still watching the wife? Or is she just another dupe, when hubby decided he'd rather spend his ill-gotten gains with a hareem full of younger, nubile women?
And the medical practitioner who wrote the death cert. Is he now suddenly driving a Lambo? Or did he meet an untimely end?
What's that saying? Never believe a man is dead until you have seen his corpse?
... is what they are "hearing". I.e the disbelief and head-shaking (*), jaw-dropping (**) "did you see what those primates are doing now?!" reactions.
We should be listening for the sound of interstellar facepalms
(*) yes, provided they have heads
(**) mandibles, suction cups, etc
Indeed. I hadn't even reached the third paragraph before wondering "shirley, you're not using that for crypto?", then I went "phew, oh that's OK then" - before my mind again flew off towards "some idiot is going to use it for crypto in some big org for critical data, I just know it".
I remember trying to explain to my tutor(!) during my Master's in the supposedly Advanced Cryptography unit about crypto-safe RNGs. He didn't get it. This was a PhD student!
For years and years he would patrol the bridges over the Ankh in case an international gang of bridge thieves would suddenly strike. Then he, Sergeant Fred Colon would be right on them (after finishing his smoko and only if he had Captain Carrot with him, but still)!
That's preemptive policing that is!

I recently had made the switch on my work-assigned Macbook and am in the process of switching all my Linuxesses' logins over.
Quite pleased, especially once you throw in oh-my-zsh and other little helpers.
That said, shell scripts that I need to throw around and run on other systems will likely stay bash for quite a while (though I no longer go so far as to avoid bash-isms and remain pure Bourne - it's not like I suddenly have to expect someone to throw a Solaris or HP/UX box at me).
