Being a bit pedantic here, but the braking distance of a car is not reduced at all by having motors, as the limit is already defined by the tyre/road interaction, assuming both road and suspension are in good condition.
Re: Clear cut...
And they will have footage that proves that..
Agree, but the same as being in a bar liked by and full of racist people does not make you a racist, but it sure looks llike either you dont care about the company or you are one of them.
Re: Love it!
I am so sorry for you.
Re: A milestone, surely
As far as I can see, that data is not complete (still very cool), as I cant see data from Iran, Russia, China...
"FlightAware's primary service area includes airspace operated by the United States (including Alaska, Hawaii, Puerto Rico, and Guam), Canada, the Caribbean, Australia, New Zealand, portions of Central America, the United Kingdom, and France. Flights in the primary service area support real time maps, departure and arrival information, delays, and more."
So it is missing most of Europe, all of Africa, South america and Asia.
Still, for such a boeing friendly part of the world, it is quite clear that the a320 has beaten the 737.
The reason for this is quite simple: a 320 has less cost per mile per seat than a 737. It is also more silent and has more space.. but that is not the reason it is winning. It is just cost.
Re: I hope the Bluetooth works better on this one
And then it has interference even from USB3...
Re: "More train/ferry/car/bus etc users"
Most of the cost could be saved by these.. as no turbines to be inspected or serviced.
And yes, I see this as an alternative to go from/to the jet.
The range is way too short.. how is this thing ever going to be approved? no fuel to go to alternate airport (or 30 mins for a heli)
"[14 CFR 91, §91.167]
(a) No person may operate a civil aircraft in IFR conditions unless it carries enough fuel (considering weather reports and forecasts and weather conditions) to—
(1) Complete the flight to the first airport of intended landing;
(2) Except as provided in paragraph (b) of this section, fly from that airport to the alternate airport; and
(3) Fly after that for 45 minutes at normal cruising speed or, for helicopters, fly after that for 30 minutes at normal cruising speed."
So this can fly for an hour.. and will be restricted to 30 mins max.. I frankly dont see how this could work with existing rules.
Ok, this one I knew without searching. At that absolutely defeats his argument of "not a public figure". If I can know who he is, he is a public figure.
Re: Lack of clue
I might contribute to the project as I have the electronics skills, and I am also fed up with UPSs, and I know I am not alone.
BUT the problem is that designing the right electronics for modern computers is difficult.. we basically need decent electronics.. and that is expensive.
Read these papers from ABB:
I have seen data centers have fires for not taking these things into account...
I always use a vpn and private sessions.. as I do not want either google or the gov to know what porn I watch.. and I suggest everyone to do at least this in the UK.
Re: Going back in time to modify history
But there is no practival exception. If you delink something in the internet, it stops existing for al practical purposes.. so yes, it is basically burning the books to rewrite history, even if the declared intention is not that.
So there is no shortage.
It is the same as saying "there is a shortage of milk", yet prices are about 24-30p a litre for the producer.
Shortage, real one, would see prices climbing a lot.
A shortage of nurses, would mean they would earn more than doctors. They don't, therefore there is a shortage "at a set price".
If I complain about a shortage of petrol, and I say I would gladly pay 80p per liter.. yeah... no shortage.. shortage at my set price.
Pay more and give better conditions, and more people will become nurses and/or more ppl will go to the uk.
Shortage is defined in a market by prices. If salaries are low, there is no shortage.
Re: He's right, but no one here will accept it
I'm not an expert but..
No offense, "but" that is the problem. You either have decent (not even good) security or you dont. And if you are going to allow other people to bypass security, it is bad by design.
If we say "yes" we would have your scenario. If we say "no" we would also probably end up in the same scenario, but at least we tried.
Re: Perhap they kick Three
they do throttle depending on device.. I have tested it.
You would be unable to target them. Smae thing happens with a flock of birds, you are unable to see the individual birds.
Re: Fixed wing drones
You are wrong.
A little drone with a shaped charge CAN take an armored vehicle.. as the top armor is crap.
Look at this:
So what you need is just a single skeet.
Each skeet weights 3,4kg, sensors and power source included.. including some structure to be inside the submunition plus battery.. so I guess you could get a less than 3kg skeet.
Now, many drones are able to lift 3kg... example:
So, with some smart programming and delivery method (truck), lets say 20 of these go and attack a place from low altitude.. no way you can defend your tanks/planes. And the ammo is 40K£ in drones and whatever the skeets cost (I would say another 30K).
that would be at least 10 vehicles destroyed.. for 70k, and without air superiority
Re: I don't care about running water, where are my internets?
I would add proper insulating, and testing for said "insulation", as most insulation only passes "on paper".
A work colleague of mine got his house insulated. I mean, properly insulated.. and this is a new build, but it had crap insulation.
He now only needs a little bit of heat added.. previously the house was colder and he had big gas bills..
Had this been made during construction, the additional cost would have benn what? 1000£? Unacceptable that we allow such building quality to be legal.
Re: Crickey mate
You are unfair.
they solve the problem, 5 years late. So at the end of 2018 they will pass a law on what was already well proven technology in 2013, so 2008 "new tech".
If I have to collaborate in projects, I need plenty of bandwidth, on both directions.
Havinh 50Mbps download and 5Mbps upload limits me a lot..
Re: in 1993 ...
I am spanish, so I also know (well, I know better) the spanish legislation.. and in spain, it is mandatory to have the telephone/telco system ready in the building, made by the builder, before anyone can legally move in.
Also, as part of the new zone being build, as the other infrastructure is being built, so is the telco infrastructure. It is considered a basic need, and a mandatory requirement for zoning. No permission otherwise.
Spain has plenty of problems (just look at the news) but not this.
Of, and FTTH in spain is now 600Mbps symmetrical. Now that I would call excesive, but 30?
I have Virgin docsis, and it is ok,
not ultrafast by any means.. and if you want to do any fancy stuff (like online backups, work from home at the same time, etc) it is "adequate, not good", as I have to throttle a lot.. as it is not symmetrical.
To say that "superfast" is 30Mbps is kind of a joke.
Superfast is maybe 600Mbps, perhaps 1Tbps. I, myself, would call 30Mbps "adequate", like 5/10.
I do understand that these are the government definitions, but they are simply wrong.
Copper feel, fibre it ain't: Ads regulator could face court for playing hard and fast with definitions
VM <> FIBRE
Of course, as you dont have fibre, but docsis over coaxial copper cable. Very different from fibre.
Using the Ads regulator logic, all the internet is "fibre", as there is some in the network, somewhere, even if it is in the core. So a 56K modem using POTS qould qualify as "fibre".
Re: Typed 'Reboot' where ... ?
A work colleague (admin) lost his job that way many moons ago.
Hethought he was putting my code (well, a version update of the project I lead) into the integration environment.. but put it into production, as he had both terminals open, and made the huge error of pulling from command line. I had told him before to put into the server, and execute from the server.. as a friendly suggestion.
He was lucky in the sense that there were no bugs in the code, so in a sense the systems kept working, unlucky in the sense that this was in the client/server era, so the decision was to push the updated client. 45 minutes down time for 50/100 ppl (dont remember well).
He lost his job for a single mistake in two years, I am still a bit angry about that.
Re: A turd by any other name
I disagree, but I would say that the bells are tolling for Java.
Re: Form factor
The thing is we all have hands very similar to each other.. so the sizes are going to be from 4.5 to 5.5 and a few bigger and smaller than that, depending on preferences (bigger screen but too big, or the contrary).
There are also a few manufacturers of chipsets, and they all pretty much are the same ARM cores, modified a bit, and a few different GPU cores. Plus the modem/radio, standard tech battery, and you just have some relatively straight forward ancilliaries such as motion sensors, screen driver, NAND, etc. YEs qualities do vary, but not so much (UFS is great, but we wont need anything faster than that).
So yeah, boring days.
Re: Phone design
The main issues as I see the problem are:
1. Support. today phones are use and throw away. They should point the target towards a car sales type of market, and make most of the money from spares, etc. Just put a validation chip/code in batteries, screens, etc.
2.Wireless desktop. If they provided a wireless desktop/connected to a standard "brainless laptop" you would use the same electronics everywhere, same os. That would encourage ppl to buy more expensive phones, and then mantain them with batteries that have to be bought from the official shop, also the only one that can reseal the unit, etc. Just look and jhon deere and their "DRM everywhere except the oil, and give us time".
Re: P.S. Irish & UK competition regulator
I think he means cannot "not breaking the law".
There are many many ways of doing it otherwise.
Also, why do they limit netfllix to non HDR 1080p on PC unless you hve very specific hw? It is easier to me to download illegal content than to pay for it!! I do pay, but it is VERY stupid.
Re: End the H1-B program entirely.
He is not in my opinion.
Those that break existing rules should be punished.. and these rules seem to oppress the worker more than anybody else.. and as existing rules are not enforced, why do they need other rules?
Just enforcing current rules or making them possible to be enforced would be enough.
As a foreign national in the UK, and a highly qualified one, I agree that every qualified person you add to a pool lowers the salaries for everyone.
Now, the H-1B is a joke.. as an example Disney firing loads of people and hiring H-1Bs.. and nobody went to prison...
So they will use agile with de scrum masters being managers.. so not agile at all.
The C Suite managers are the problem agile tries to sidestep...
There are even websites that use temolating to change the structure every week.. just to prevent scraping, or make it more costly.

Re: Still waiting for my ThreadRipper
w7 is unsupported. You know it.. so dont insist...
whenever I read this type of news I think about how wonderful these drives are.. but also how long would they take to make a backup ot restore them... if you consider an array of 32 of these... the size is huge.
So, do we know if the systems perform like this after security patching? I would say no.
Re: Rolling out to private sector is the right thing to do.
So the rich dont pay, and thats it... the rest must pay.
Re: Advertisers only have themselves to blame
The main problem I see is that they have only partially updated themselves. They mostly dont want to pay a dime for brand recognition, so they dont pay for "impressions", they just play for clicks.. and that is wrong
As for engaging ads.. well, that is also bad, as they want to engage, yes, but in a bad way, and they are just more subtle spam.
The very least you can do is switch the names and surnames randomly, and also randomly change id and bank account numbers (in this case, change numbers, not switch). You should never user the real address of anyone.
That would be as good for testing, and no risk.
Re: Apples and Pears?
the thing is, if I dont go for the bling of an S9, what keeps me from buying an Honor or a Xiaomi?
Re: For procurement...
It seems that a deep knowledge of the issue,recompiling Postgres and a few tricks can reduce this a lot.
Then I would have to keep doing that everytime, and at that point I am better using AMD, or assuming the costs of "meh" tuning.
Re: For procurement...
Ok, look at this:
In modest size postgresql virtualized servers I see 18% loss..
Re: For procurement...
Err no to your first statement, kind of ok with the rest.
In some very precise benchmarks they have 30%. and precisely in those benchmarks the loss is about 17-18% (my own testing, but there are many more in the web).
It is in databases etc that intel shines.. and with Platinum processors at 10.000$ a pop.
i would say that for mainstream server processors AMD makes more sense right now.. who knows in the future. If you use AVX-512 a lot then of course not, but then you are not using it for mainstream uses...
Let me understand.. most of London as in greater london, is composed of no fly zones.
The city of london itself, is controlled airspace as fas ar I know.
How come they get a permit to fly?
Re: Fault analysis undertaken and fix identified
If you disassemble your pc, be sure to have loctite blue at hand:
As far as I know that is what they use.
Re: add to that the fact that most people working on the project
"May I remind you that if you are not enthusiastic and supporting you are fired."
Are you reminding Theresa May or expressing what would happen? I am confused.
Re: Google AdWords...
Backblaze explain quite right how it works:
So it is not only "Edible Arrangements", it is also "backblaze", a word that whould NOT trigger google to put ads.. in my computer it triggers adds for backblaze (that is stealing sirs), idrive and softwarereviews.
It is using a protected trademark for diluting the term, and it is wrong.
You should have disclosed that, including a note saying "WD refused to engage or fix"
Re: "very expensive VCS for office documents"
That might be because they had nothing to gain by curating something under your control...
