I thought that everyone was drifting away from Sun as they got bought out by Oracle
No joke about the "Long Arm of the law"?
But growing software with no pesticides is better for the environment
Re: Deeply confused
For measuring Routemaster capacity wouldn't the Bust be a better unit?
Manufacturing jobs are a Trump fetish, and the repatriation discount a pet policy, so it’s no surprise the tweeter-in-chief emitted the following today:
This is just bringing some cash back to the USA; the factories will remain in Asia. I suspect he'll forget to mention this :)
Baby with the bathwater?
I know someone with a channel dedicated to her diagnosis and recovery from a rareish cancer. It was an unexpected bonus for her to make a bit of money out of her channel (which came in handy for medical bills); I don't see why she should suffer because of spammers/scammers.
Re: I have a question!
Won't the revenue be the same and the profit higher (due to lower costs)?

You forgot the icon -->
"Our research indicates that there are particular shortages of STEM skills at technician level, but an oversupply in other areas, such as biological science graduates, who are then often underemployed in an economy in which they are not in high demand," said the report.
Sadly successive UK governments sat back and did nothing while pharma life sciences R&D contracted sharply in the last decade or so.
I'm also slightly confused about why there are too few "technicians" and too many biological sciences graduates. There are many technicians (wth degrees) in biology labs...
whatever else is the engineering / content creation going to be done on
Adobe Lightroom is surprisingly good on an iPad and is even useful on a phone.
As phones etc. are basically computers these days, a keyboard, mouse and monitor would make them usable for most use cases.
Terminally bad joke
Park Air T6
But Heathrow only has five terminals
"develop nuclear warheads for cruise missiles"
Nuclear armed cruise missiles are not in any sense a Strategic Nuclear Deterrent.
Moreover, a potential adversary would have no way of knowing if the incoming missile has a conventional or nuclear warhead until it hit its target. You can see how a commander's decision on how to retaliate would be guesswork with terrible consequences if s/he got the wrong option.

A server for holding metadata for a storage system like Lustre (in reality you’d use more than one for redundancy

If they try it then DEC them
Re: I don't get it
I've just learned something new :)
A pint for Mike ->
There are a few on the way eg Isambard in Bristol, Mont Blanc 3 in Barcelona etc.
Re: Box user RS Zaharna...
Why is he tweeting @DropboxSupport about Box issues? Aren't they completely different entities?
I was about to post the same....
Then again my Sony has the USB ports powered even in standby mode.
That's not the case on my Samsung. In my mind having the device unpowered when the TV is in standby makes sense.
Re: UI design 101
"On the Beach" is the correct response to a nuclear threat.
Drinking fine wine and racing fast cars, doesn't sound too bad...
Re: Hmm ...
You could store information about it in the Prod database
Re: My understanding is..
You'd need Arnie along to terminate it properly...
Re: Not forgetting Burlington
I'd love to look around too (especially once they've got rid of the asbestos)
That's HMS Astute of you
Re: I can tell them that for free
A: all of them as we can't afford any more
Both of them?
I'm disappointed with the lack of cheesy puns under this story...
Solaris is a hipster OS, it had containers ("zones") long before Docker became famous
"sales execution issues"
Well, I guess execution is one way of motivating the salesforce
Re: Garmin - Competition is tough
Maybe true for some sports, but in mountain biking everyone still seems to use GoPro
Re: Oh no....
They do GoPro on about them...
I Seagate what you did there...
Re: Has anyone checked if existing malware is compatible with the meltdown update?
Love it! -->
This is one of the reasons that HPC types like HDF5; it's quicker to read data from disc and decompress it than read the uncompressed data from disc.
Re: BBC news headline "Meltdown and Spectre: All Mac devices affected says Apple"
If only they had the Power to move to another chip
Re: Fighting talk...
Yep, loch them up and throw away the key
Re: Is nothing sacred?
If someone says that to you then you should batter them
Re: Broken OS
I normally resist OS major version updates on Apple until the .1 release
I have some good news for you, OSX10.1 was released in 2001 so you've been OK for 17 years
Re: I'm Praying to the Aliens..
Yes Sir - performs a "Rimmer salute"
I think we also used it to help out with the Ebola epidemic 2 years ago - ferrying people to hospital ships and medical staff around the affected countries.
Wasn't that RFA Argus?
Re: Whats in a name
We'd have to have loads of identical ships named Badger though...
Good plan, we're all sett now
Re: "OK for research"
I work in R&D in drug discovery in a for profit company; who knows if Nvidia think what we do is "research" or not...
Re: Heavens Delight
Surely that’d be “Xen mystics”
I mostly agree with you, but...
new build buyers can expect their heating to be provided by a "district heating network", putting their comfort in the hands of a bunch of charlatans who have an absolute monopoly, and can charge extortionate prices for shit service.
I live in a flat with communal heating, there are thermostats on each radiator so I can easily get the temperature I want (which most people would find uncomfortably cold).
