Cops raid home of ousted data scientist who created her own Florida COVID-19 dashboard


Re: This isn't about Trump

Trump does nothing by lie though his teeth. Soon he will be on skid row after he can't pay his debt and has his properties foreclosed on. He'll be out there lying to bums telling them how unfair the world is and how mistreated he is. Steaming pile of it.

Microsoft to rethink crash-prone Visual Studio extension model, shift towards cloud


Who cares if VS Code is more popular? I want a tool that does the job, and that is Visual Studio. Code sucks as far as I'm concerned. Why they created that retarded competing IDE is beyond me. Also, probably the vast majority of the extensions could be eliminated and no one would miss them. Does this mean Microsoft could build VS as 64 bit finally???

.NET Core: Still a Microsoft platform thing despite more than five years open source


Microsoft has been dumping on it's existing developer base

I can't say I am a fan of David Fowler. I think he has done a horrible job with ASP.NET, starting with ASP.NET MVC. IMHO, Microsoft had it right with Web Forms to begin with. It had the concept of UI controls. MVC ditched that and basically just became a .NET version of Ruby On Rails. It's like they fired the entire team of whoever originally worked on .NET and made it great, and brought in people who wanted to make it like Java, or whatever the trendy language of the moment was. I have always hated MVC and cannot stand modern versions of ASP.NET. Then, Microsoft while somehow managing to bring Windows Forms and WPF forward onto .NET Core, refused to move Web Forms forward leaving existing developers in a lurch. I have a lot of Web Forms application, and I'm not re-writing them all. I'm using Telerik's UI controls which are still by far more robust than the versions for MVC, Blazor etc. They are intranet apps and Web Forms is a highly productive environment for developing the kind of applications that I'm working on. I spent a lot of time converting from Entity Framework to Entity Framework Core. Now, they changed EF Core to use .NET Standard 2.1 which doesn't support .NET Framework. Also, the newest language features are unavailable on .NET Framework. While I'm glad that Microsoft is getting more into open source and opening things up, I think they have done a horrible job with respect to moving things onto .NET Core. I think the decision to not move Web Forms is by people like David Fowler. They think they know everything and have done nothing but make the platform more difficult to work with. Just look at the ridiculous new logging API, and all the other overly complicated over design patterned code they are writing. It's convoluted as hell. Things should be getting easier, but, that's not what's happening. They are shoving new technology down everyone's throats. That would be fine if it was better, but, that isn't necessarily the case. I hope Microsoft considers their long term developers and doesn't throw them under the bus while they chase the younger developers. It appears that they already have. Personally, I think they need a management shake up. Current management are doing a bad job.

AWS attempts to woo devs with new tool aimed at porting .NET applications to Linux


Amazon should port Web Forms to .NET Core

If Amazon wants to help, I think they should port Web Forms to .NET Core since Microsoft is too lazy to do it.

Re: Inquiring minds want to know...

I don't think I've had any major issues with file system corruption, other than, if you have Fast Startup enabled in Windows 10 and reconfigure drives (I.e. add a second drive or the like). Get ready for massive problems/file system corruption if you do that. I think it uses a hibernate-like file to speed up startup and I think it caches changes to the file system in it. It does it even when you do a shutdown, as opposed to hibernating the system. Personally, I think Fast Startup is extremely dangerous for that reason. I always have to remember to disable it when I setup a new computer.


Re: Ah, good old WinForms

My eyes are getting in my old age, but, the worst for me in Windows is in a PowerShell window, where you have red text on a blue or black background. Looks blurry as hell. I don't know what it is about those colors together, but, it effs with my eyes.

Microsoft Web Live Preview: Hot reload for ASP.NET web applications


Port ASP.NET Web Forms to .NET Core and stop wasting time on things people don't need

I would rather Microsoft port Web Forms to .NET Core instead of wasting their time on this.

25 years of PHP: The personal web tools that ended up everywhere


Don't know PHP, but, woudl probably take it over client-side JavaScript hell any day

I don't know PHP and from what I've heard, the language kind of sucks, but, at this point, I think I would take it over the completely insane microservice-based BS that is being forced down my throat. All client-side SPA web apps do is make things unnecessarily more complicated. I really don't think they result in a better user experience at all. Server-side is the way to go IMHO. That coupled with a few AJAX enabled UI controls here and there. I #$%^ing hate the new and allegedly improved way of creating web apps. It's an epic fail if you ask me.

HPE's Black Thursday: Staff face pay cuts or the ax, office closures to save $1bn+ after coronavirus slams IT titan


Re: So, slashing headcount again ?

That's why you have to be strategic and not allow your job to look too easy. You have to $%^& up a little every now and then, and then come to the rescue to get on management's radar. Otherwise, like you say, you will just be taken for granted and overlooked.


Re: I must agree that...

You hit the nail on the head. The company has been run by one incompetent after another ever since Fiorina.


HPE support is attrocious and is deliberately designed to not uphold warranty

In the 1990s I bought a 8 port switch. The switch had a lifetime warranty. It failed probably 10 to 15 years later. I figured it would be a long shot, but, contacted HP to see if I could get a replacement. They sent me the equivalent new model, no questions asked. I thought, wow, what an excellent organization. More recently I an HPE switch which also had a lifetime warranty. It failed after less than a year. I found that HPE's support (apparently handled by a company called Aruba) was absolutely abysmal. It started out talking to someone one in a far away country with extremely poor phone service. It was so garbled I could barely understand what they were saying. Personally, I wonder if it was intentional. They told me that I needed to call back during the week, as I didn't have 24/7 support. It took probably a half hour for them to just take down my name and email address, let alone even get to describing the problem. Then, I called back during the normal work week and they told me that they don't warranty products bought on the "gray market" since I had bought it (directly) from Amazon. I told them I was going to complain to the CEO and report them to the FTC. I found the CEO's contact form and indeed did complain to them. And boy what a difference that made. I had like 6 different people urgently trying to contact me by phone and by email. Then, they asked me what company I was with and still didn't want to send me a replacement because my email address wasn't from a corporation. I had to give them my work email otherwise, they still weren't going to let me do the RMA. I personally believe that they intentionally try to make the warranty process so painful that customers just give up. I probably had to talk to 15 different people to get a $50 switch replaced. The elite and the CEOs have done nothing but do their best to drive HP into the ground. Stay away from HPE. They have absolutely horrible support and are undeserving of your business. I pretty sure they follow a script like companies like Comcast do where they put you on hold and intentionally waste your time until you get frustrated and hang up. It's fraud if you ask me.

The point of containers is they aren't VMs, yet Microsoft licenses SQL Server in containers as if they were VMs


Cloud is a joke

I think all this Docker container stuff is a total joke. It's nothing but a way for corporations get you to pay rent. PostgreSQL is good enough now that there really is no need for SQL Server anymore.

Is this an ASP.NET Core I see before me? Where to next for Microsoft's confusing web framework...


Web Forms needs to be moved forward onto .NET Core

Microsoft is throwing Web Forms developers under the bus and refuses to move it forward from .NET Framework to .NET Core. I could live with having to run it on Windows. However, the problem is that .NET Framework lacks new language-level support. .NET Framework doesn't support .NET Standard 2.1 which EF Core 5 now requires. This means that you won't be able to use the latest EF Core with Web Forms applications. EF Core has had a lot of problems over the years. Problems with the query engine. Slow performance. Missing features that were in the original EF. etc. Web Forms needs to be brought forward. There are a lot of Web Forms apps out there and they aren't going to get re-written. Especially, when the newer technologies don't do what it does. Server-side Blazor is probably as close as it gets to a replacement, but, it is still immature. Also, I cannot stand the design of post Web Forms ASP.NET. It was easier to use in the old days. Personally, I am not happy at all with what Microsoft is doing with web development. Microsoft shouldn't be so quick to throw their loyal developers under the bus considering the new developers seem uninterested in their products based on the results of the StackOverflow survey. Not happy at all.

Microsoft throws a bone to those unable to leave the past behind: .NET 5 support on the way for Visual Basic


Now support ASP.NET Web Forms

Now they just need to add support for ASP.NET Web Forms. They refused to do it though.

WinUI and WinRT: Official modern Windows API now universal thanks to WebAssembly


Re: Deja vu all over again

I wholeheartedly agree. Microsoft is notorious for having a lack of good UI controls included by default. One should not have to rely on third party for pay controls for this. They did the same thing with Windows Forms. A robust grid component and an editable combo box should come standard. Same thing with things like numeric text boxes and date and date/time pickers. On the web side of things, Microsoft is trying to force people off of Web Forms and onto Blazor which of course has the same issue with a lack of UI controls. Though it's better than MVC, which was a complete joke.

Microsoft emits long-term support .NET Core 3.1, Visual Studio 16.4


No ASP.NET Web Forms

I am pissed that they didn't move Web Forms forward. Yes, it is old, but, it still works great. I have been using Telerik's UI controls and it has been a highly productive environment. The UI controls are very robust and AJAX enabled. I almost never have to even write a line of JavaScript. IMHO, Microsoft had the design right to begin with. Yes, the pages are big with VIEWSTATE, but, for intranet applications, it's not really an issue. And IMHO that is something they could have fixed. However, the took Web Forms and threw it out and replaced it with a less functional MVC based framework which or all practical purposes was just a rip off Ruby On Rails. Also, I am not sold on client-side applications. For the database driven applications I'm working on, there is no need for it. Server-side with AJAX enabled controls works just fine. I am not happy at all with Microsoft not moving it forward. Luckily, they made it so that EF Core 3.1 can run on .NET Framework. On 3.0, it only worked on Core. At least they fixed that.

Microsoft joins Google and Mozilla in adopting DNS over HTTPS data security protocol


Re: "Just stop using their stuff."

How could it bypass ad filters? I would think something like Ad Block Plus would work the same way it always has? Maybe I don't understand how the filtering works. I wouldn't think it has anything to do with DNS, but, maybe something like pi hole fakes DNS or something to eliminate the ads...

Republican senators shoot down a triple whammy of proposed election security laws



Apparently you don't remember a few years back when a Republican who was overseeing the voting disappeared for a couple days with the flash drive from the electronic machines. Supposedly, she was merging the results together in Microsoft Access. What kind of F-ed up S is that? You cannot trust the electronic voting machines. Anyone who works i IT knows that. If you have access to the data, you can do whatever you want with it. No system is secure. Paper ballots or at least a paper audit trail is the only way to go. Also, there were Republican states that intentionally disabled the audit trails. Funny how Jill Stein of the Green Party was the one trying to get the two corrupt parties to do an audit.

PostgreSQL puts the pedal to the metal with some smart indexing tweaks in version 12


Can you configure a database as case insensitive now???

Has anyone got case insensitive collations working? I installed it a couple days ago and couldn't get it working. The documentation is poor. Case insensitive collations should be included by default. It is ridiculous that this feature has been missing all this time. Also, as far as a know computed/generated columns have to be stored on disk, not computed a query time. PostrgreSQL seems good. I just can't understand how something like case insensitivity could be missing all this time. I know about CITEXT. The point is that you should not have to use proprietary syntax like that. Or, do things like convert everything to lower case. That just lame. Other than that, it seems all right and is a lot faster that MySQL. SQL Server will remain my top pick until case insensitive searches are working. As far as I'm concerned, case insensitive should be the default.

Cortana makes your PC's heart beat faster: Windows 10 update leaves some processors hot under the cooler


If you have System Restore enabled, you can do a System Restore to undo the changes. Restore to a restore point before when you installed the update.


Re: Even more broken

Yes, I have noticed the same thing. It is extremely annoying. Type "updates" one letter at a time to find "Check for updates". Now, backspace/delete the "s" at the end. Now it comes up. The results are inconsistent between multiple computers that I have. I think it may be some kind of timing related issue. The problem seems to appear more on lower powered PCs that I have.


Re: Bing!

Re-enabling Bing didn't work for me. I tested it the day before an updated patch came out and it didn't work. I got burned on several computers with this bug. Others were fine for no apparent reason. It appears that they removed the option to disable Internet searches through the search box in recent versions of Windows 10. I ####ing hate Cortana. Looking forward to more people switching to other platforms. Microsoft deserves it for all the years that they have forced this #### on us. It is one annoying feature that you didn't want after another. They should stick to core OS features and not try to parrot Apple and force it on you. All the new features are a massive privacy violation. Especially things like Timeline. And then of course they have it upload everything to the cloud. It is ridiculous.

Tangled in .NET: Will 5.0 really unify Microsoft's development stack?


Re: what a mess

@NerryTutkins Good point about EF being slow and it being paired with MVC. Very true. I have been a heavy user of EF and EF Core, but have found Dapper to be much faster.


Re: what a mess

Finally, a voice or reason. The fact is that Web Forms to this day still works best depending on what your needs are. I'm using it with Telerik's UI controls and I will take that any day over the "new and improved" way of doing things. As far as I'm concerned, all MVC ever was, was a copy of Ruby On Rails. I don't have a problem with copying the good aspects of it. However, the problem all along IMHO was a lack of UI controls. IMHO, ASP.NET Web Forms and JavaServer Faces had it right to begin with. I disagree with those who claim that you need to program web apps at the bare metal. That is just flat out wrong. I want to program at an appropriate level of abstraction for what I do, which is developing applications. I am able to that without using JavaScript at all using Web Forms. And that is AJAX enabled and has robust UI controls such as grid controls with built-in sorting, filtering, grouping, inline editing, etc. etc. I am not happy at all with the direction the ASP.NET team has been taking for the past 10 years for this reason. Also, Microsoft is saying that Web Forms developers should move to Blazor, an unreleased framework that si barely alpha quality. It remains to be seen whether it even pans out or will be dropped, just like Silverlight was. Microsoft got themselves into this mess to begin with because they insisted on tying .NET to Windows. The same way they made idiotic claims like IE is an integral part of the operating system. Now, they have a mess on their hands trying to clean everything up. Python is on the rise as was evidenced by StackOverflows survey results for the past several years and C# is going down. Developers Web Forms and WCF developers should take note of this an evaluate other platforms after being screwed by Microsoft. Personally, I think Microsoft is just trying to push everyone into the cloud to make more money.

Microsoft throws lifeline to .NET orphans in the brave new Core world


Re: As long as I can *PREVENT* linkage to ".NOT" (or whatever they call it)

You must not have heard that the new way of creating .NET Core apps is to include a full copy of .the .NET Core runtime and DLLs with your application. So, you end up with about a hundred different installs of varying different versions of .NET Core. It's great. Way to go Microsoft!


So, Web Forms users get screwed the most

So, now, Microsoft open sources WCF and even WF, but, not Web Forms. The ASP.NET team is absolutely horrible. It has been all down hill ever since they parroted Ruby On Rails and got rid of the UI controls. Now Microsoft wants you to switch to Blazor, an as of yet unreleased experimental framework. I'm sure it will work out great, until they pull the rug out from under it like they did with Silverlight .NET Core in general has been one fiasco after another.

.NET Core 3 Preview 3 takes a bow, but best not hold your breath for the final release


They need to either port Web Forms to .NET Core or make it open source

I would be fine with moving to .NET Core. However, I have a lot of Web Forms apps and Microsoft has thrown Web Forms under the bus. MVC/ASP.NET Core is a poor substitute. When coupled with robust UI controls such as Telerik's Web Forms is better for intranet apps. Microsoft is doing a sh*tty job on this.

Kubernetes caretaker auditions for Hoarders; takes in another open source project


Why would anyone want to use any of this?

Speaking of normal people being baffled, I have no idea why anyone would want to use microservices, Docker, or Kubernetes. As far as I'm concerned doing software development like that is just insanity. I'm starting to think that people are just lemmings all too willing to follow fellow idiots off a cliff doing things that make absolutely no sense. It is group think and brainwashing if you ask me. It is all designed to make corporations like Microsoft and Amazon more money.

It's official. Microsoft pushes Google over the Edge, shifts browser to Chromium engine


Does this mean you will be able to do simple things like backup your favorites?

I thought it was pathetically lame that Edge changed how Favorites are stored and basically obfuscated and hid them so that you can't back them up. I liked IE better where they were just files in the file system. Apparently something so simple is no longer fashionable.


Edge reset Adblock Plus settings

Does anyone else have he problem where Edge keeps resetting Adblock Plus settings? I have this on several computers. It's been going on for awhile now and is very annoying. I'm wondering if it's just me. I'm wondering if something got corrupted in my profile. However, as I mentioned, it's a problem on several computers. My suspicion has been that Microsoft is intentionally trying to make it not work.

Microsoft to staff: We remain locked and loaded with US military – and will keep adding voice to AI ethics debate


Re: We can’t expect these new developments to be addressed wisely...

Good point. Microsoft and the government are a match made in heaven. Both INCOMPETENT. Though, I would argue that the whole way of developing software with languages with no array bounds checking is gross incompetence in general. The fact is that companies like Microsoft don't care about security. They care more about jamming garbage like Cortana and random other garbage down your throat than making their software secure. Besides that, they worked with the NSA when designing Windows Vista and admitted it. No doubt they have continued that relationship and you can pretty much guarantee that they put back doors in. Just like when people from the NSA were on that encryption committee trying to bully other nations into accepting their back doored algorithm. Never mind that fact that the push into forcing you to put everything in the cloud is also completely insecure and untrustworthy.


The military has nothing to do with defending the country

The military is not used for defending the country, it is used to steal resources from and control other countries. The Department of Defense should be renamed to the Department of War. The military budget needs to be drastically cut. 51% of the overall budget is ridiculously out of hand. Especially when you consider that we spend more on our military than the next 9 countries combined. The corrupt incompetents running our country can't even run out country in a competent manner, yet they have to meddle with every other country and topple governments left and right. The United States is a rogue nation and has been for a long time since before Trump. Furthermore, the war criminals running this country need to be held to account. Until that happens, things will continue to get worse.

Memo to Microsoft: Windows 10 is broken, and the fixes can't wait


Remote Desktop problems

Is anyone else having problems with Remote Desktop after upgrading? I use the Windows 10 legacy Remote Desktop Connection application, not the Window Store one because historically I have found it to work better. After upgrading, I now have to try at least a couple times usually to connect from home to work. This is over a 80 Mbps Comcast connection. The problem is that it hangs on connection and I have to close the app and try again. I am hoping that Microsoft fixes this as I rely on this to work remotely. Luckily it has never completely got stuck like I have seen in Windows 7. Until this update, Remote Desktop has worked great on Windows 10. The other issue I've ran into is the Task Manager CPU usage being wrong.

Microsoft points to a golden future where you can make Windows 10 your own



With all due respect, that small number of apps that can be uninstalled is pathetic. This isn't revolutionary at all. What they should do is make it more like Linux where you can even install it without the GUI. And how about being able to uninstall Cortana? The truth is, if you really want to be able to customize your system, Windows doesn't cut it. I'm a Windows user primarily, so, I am not partisan and just trying to pick on Microsoft. I am just pointing out FACT. This lack of configurability is a long standing issue and I don't see why it is even worth mentioning that you can uninstall the apps listed in the article if that is all it is.

Intel rips up microcode security fix license that banned benchmarking

My question is when will it be safe to by a new system and not have it have a huge performance hit due to these vulnerabilities? Do the latest CPUs have the vulnerabilities? I want to get a new computer, but, I want to wait until this has been resolved. I have a feeling that may not happen anytime soon.

You won't believe this but... everyone hates their cable company: Bombshell study lands


Re: What is 'Rent-Seeking'?

"Rent seeking" is pretty much all of Wall Street. All they do is blood suck off people who actually do something useful. Nothing more than leeches.


Let me explain why cable is as bad as it is

Because our government has been completely BRIBED and BOUGHT by these corporations, no thanks to the Supreme Court in their infinite wisdom deciding that money is free speech. Not to mention the revolving door between government and the corporations. Just wait and see, Ajit Pai will be cashing in once he is out of the FCC Just like Obama did once he got out of office, giving speeches for $400K a piece.. Ajit Pai is one of the most rotten and corrupt people in the United States. Right up there with Mick Mulvaney and Scott Priutt. Anti-government fascist criminals. 100% of Republicans and about 95% of Democrats in Congress are literally bought CRIMINALS who do not represent the people. They represent corporations like Comcast who value nothing but transferring wealth from the bottom to the top. The best way to deal with the cable companies is get Internet only and nothing else. Then use over the air TV. TV in general is a total waste. Nothing by constant commercials. I pretty much never watch TV anymore. I get all my information off the Internet where I can block the ads. Additionally, corporate media is for all practical purposes, nothing more than propaganda. This country should be ashamed.

Only a day late and a dollar short, Google: Now its cloud cozies up to Microsoft's GitHub


Please explain how any of this is better

Personally, I feel that DevOps, microservices, and this whole new way of doing things is a complete scam. I don't see how any of this is better than the old way of doing things. Maybe it makes sense for large corporations, but, for something like intranet apps, it is total overkill and a complete waste of time. On top of that, it is also a complete wasted of money. I am sick and tired of this stuff being water boarded down my neck. Managers are all too eager to lap this stuff up. There should be a requirement that anyone who manages developers has to have actually been a developer. Too often they are not. All they do push whatever the latest buzzword is on you whether it makes sense for a project or not. Docker is a complete scam as well. It is a total joke to think that it and microservices in any way improve things, make things simpler or more reliable. It does not. Not by a long shot. All it does is complicate things and make a complete waste of time. If any of these managers had a clue, if they had actually written an application before, then, maybe they wouldn't be constantly pushing this garbage. The state of web development is a complete joke also. Nothing but JavaScript hell. If you aren't doing single page web applications, you aren't cool. Well, there is more to constantly trying to keep up with the trendy cool kids. It's called getting meaningful work done. As for me, I will be doing my best to stick to doing things following KISS as much as possible. And that means doing my best to avoid using any of this garbage. I just hope I can fend off the morons for another 10 to 15 years when I hope to retire, assuming Trump doesn't completely devalue my retirement savings in the process of blowing up the economy.

Re: My middle aged eyes prefer the dark background

Also, I would like to add, that I wish the PC makers would stop using gloss screens for monitors on laptops. They are absolutely horrible. The matte ones from a decade ago are much better. Much less glare and reflection. Apple's gloss screens in particular are terrible. Try reading something with a light behind you. You are blinded be the reflection of the light. I have a cheap HP laptop with a matte screen from a decade plus ago which is vastly superior to the monitor on my MacBook Air. Also, the MacBook Air, while running Windows, doesn't let you turn the brightness down far enough. The HP doesn't have that problem. Lose the gloss monitors please.


My middle aged eyes prefer the dark background

I'm glad they are adding dark theme support. I hope they do it to all their apps. Also, I'm glad they added Nightlight mode to Windows 10. A lot of the LED monitors are too bright, even when set to the lowest brightness settings. I would switch everything to dark mode if I could. 25 years of black on white is enough for me. I'm ready for something different. Also, I am happen with the new flat UI now. It looks a lot better than all previous versions of Windows. Windows 7 looked cheesy and lame. Also, I'm glad that they finally have some halfway decent pictures that they display on the desktop now. Much better than XP grass hill picture.

Can't stand that thing. I will complain for another 10 years. Maybe by then, the world will end, Microsoft will go under, or finally come to their senses and put the ribbon out of its misery like they should have before committing crimes against humanity by releasing it in the first place.

Cisco cancels all YouTube ads, then conceals cancellation


Re: CNN started this, they want to defund independent media

Because he was singled out in the "investigation" that CNN did trying to get all the advertisers to pull their adds from YouTube. Fear mongering them, making an issue out of nothing, claiming that YouTube is full of white supremacist and pedophile channels. The truth of the matter is that YouTube is a competitor of CNN. Jimmy Dore has been critical of CNN and that's why he was singled out. He doesn't blindly accept everything that the government say like CNN does. An example, is the Syrian gas attack which looks like a total fraud and a false flag. CNN doesn't do journalism. All they do is push propaganda for the establishment. Keep in mind that when you watch the establishment media, the people you see are not actual journalists. They are more like actors. They are paid to not tell you the truth. They are paid to tell you what the corporations want you to think. It is funny that you should mention "uncritically believing" something. Because that is exactly what the mainstream media does. They do nothing bug propagate lies from the CIA to drum up fear so that the military industrial complex can keep making money.
