AWS hires Rust compiler team co-lead Felix Klock


A new definition for Rust bucket ?

So Rust and S3 == a rust bucket ? one for fellow Aussies :-)

BOFH: You brought nothing to the party but a six-pack of regret


Re: Just the morale boost I needed

well you need to test reverse gear sometimes, so twice.

Enjoying that 25Mbps internet speed, America? Oh, it's just 6Mbps? And you're unhappy? Can't imagine why


Re: Nothing much wrong with my NBN

FTTH/FTTP in NZ is where you need to be.

1Gbps/500Mbps plan through BigPipe (.co.nz) $NZD106, no plan, no throttling, no data caps.

Fibre install was free into my apartments lounge room.

And Chorus (the wholesaler) is trialling 10Gb residential FTTP with a rollout in the next 6 months or so.

Yes NZ is smaller than Oz (i'm from Melbourne but moved here for work 6 years ago) but Oz could learn a lot from the rollout here as they abandoned FTTN (fibre to the node) and went FTTH/FTTP.

Do i need Gb internet? nope, but i was on 200/200 Mbps and when Chorus announced Gb was available my ISP, BigPipe, upgrade me to that plan for free and my monthly bill was the same. Actually it went down by $20 to $106 as Chorus also reduced the wholesale price a whileback.

Awesome and reliable and cheap. Can't ask for much more than that!!

Apollo at 50? How about 40 years since Skylab smacked into Australia


40 years has gone quick!

good article. I remember it was in the Oz news for ages with speculation rife on where it would crash.

'Year-long' delay to UK 5G if we spike Huawei deals, say telcos


health issues of 5G vs Chinese backdoor

i think the potential health issues wrt 5G is more of an issue than Huawei possibly having a backdoor or 2. https://www.5gappeal.eu/scientists-and-doctors-warn-of-potential-serious-health-effects-of-5g/ and https://www.jrseco.com/european-union-5g-appeal-scientists-warn-of-potential-serious-health-effects-of-5g/ and http://www.5g.org.nz

Big trouble Down Under as Australian MPs told to reset their passwords amid hack attack fears



it's yet another distraction from the Liberal National Murdocracy to try and put something else into the news instead of the pitiful infighting that is going on and will continue to happen right up until the next election.

Just because someone used nmap to scan the parliamentary network doesn't mean it was "hacked" ffs and the blame China rhetoric is yet another way to try and deflect the LNPs pitiful performance and ulta-low "popularity".

Re: What gets me is...

it happens a lot in Oz thru AirBnB - people use fake id's and have a party, tell Facebook and then all hell breaks loose

3 articles about that this year in a quick google search:




Apple in another dust-up with its fans: iMacs, MacBooks lack filters, choke on grime – lawsuit


Re: Meanwhile in la la land

Yep but the Apple dust "thinner and lighter" than anything else....

Tech sector unites in attempt to avoid Oz's anti-crypto push, again


i agree. The Libtards want to be seen to "securing" Straya against those pesky hackers and most Aussies wouldnt have a fucking clue wrt that but hopefully they read between the lines on this one. Probably not though as all this is, is just another bite out of the internet cherry.

The fuckwits (Libtards) don't realise that we have Tor, Signal, Wickr etc that we can use and the next set of legislation is to actually mandate the breaking of said encryption. Good luck with that.

Big brother is alive and well in Oz controlled by retards and spastics who wouldn't know how to send an email let alone what encryption is. Sounds good for the resume/CV tho

Re: 120 launches a year?

they're actually aiming for one per week. Their license is actually for one every 72 hours.

Australia wants tech companies to let cops 'n' snoops see messages without backdoors


Re: It's simple

agreed. As an Aussie living in NZ i just laugh now about what happens in Oz. I'm currently in Oz for family reasons but can't wait to get back to my gigabit fibre internet connection instead of the crap NBN we have in Oz. (i'm back tomorrow)

http://www.speedtest.net/result/6823071443 on a 2014 router. Not bad hey? and on an NZ public holiday at peak time too.

NAB mainframe turns its TOESUP* after power outage, offline 7 hours


Re: "main online transaction processing server"

NAB has 6 diesel generators at the Knox data centre IIRC. So IMHO it wasn't a power outage at the data centre. Unless they've moved the mainframe to the new (to me) data centre which was commissioned yonks after i left. Rumour has it that it was related to switches dying but i dunno.
