  • Commented on Reality is broken
    I have good news then: Max Gladstone's fifth Craft Series book is out. Start with Three Parts Dead and go from there....
  • Commented on The iron law of development
    "What do you call a battery with 50% more power? A bomb." -- actual battery engineer, who clarified that this statement is always true at any given point in time. (LiIon battery density is improving at about 10% per year,...
  • Commented on What are you reading this summer?
    Sighing heavily, Dr Roadster regretfully decided to go with the Model S noose instead of the larger Model X, as it was still charging via the Powerwall. That is the Tesla you meant, right?...
  • Commented on What are you reading this summer?
    As usual, I'm "currently" reading about a half dozen books -- I switch to another one when they get boring, go back when the alternate is boring or I finish it. Or sometimes I switch a new book because I'm...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLOND
    which ends in 2015 Well, that's depressing....
  • Commented on The unspeakable truth
    It's an inciteful comment. Please no more along those lines, 'kay?...
  • Commented on Updating a classic
    It is sexist badmouthing, and demonstrably false in multiple ways. (Mayer was not a bad executive, and Google -- like everyone else -- hasn't care about Yahoo in many years.)...
  • Commented on Updating a classic
    That is a depressingly-accurate description of several companies with which I am personally familiar. (Some startups, two ... not.) I'm going to say (3) is inverted, however: the current job of HR is to both manage staffing and payroll, but...
  • Commented on A purely theoretical dilemma
    Don't....
  • Commented on A purely theoretical dilemma
    Because Charlie said it was. Go read his comment/warning. And his original post answered your other question as well....
  • Commented on A purely theoretical dilemma
    Read Charlie's description again, and comment #2....
  • Commented on A purely theoretical dilemma
    Personal attacks are not permitted. Nyx Ninoy: you are repeatedly going off-topic....
  • Commented on A purely theoretical dilemma
    You should read the comments. At the very least, you should read Charlie's comments, one of which answered the second and third questions. Also you should read the original post, which answered the first question....
  • Commented on A purely theoretical dilemma
    See comment #2 from Charlie....
  • Commented on A purely theoretical dilemma
    When billions of people are forced into a collective you end up with a single mind that cannot exist in a single body You believe that. There are just as many counter examples in fiction. (To pick an example...
  • Commented on The unavoidable discussion
    Not so gentle reminder: this is not to discuss American politics. Quote, "This is not a discussion of American domestic policy issues."...
  • Commented on The unavoidable discussion
    From where I now sit, it seems that the perception of EU taking away local decision making is making a subset of the English population unhappy. So it's all about Countries' Rights? duck...
  • Commented on Rise Of The Trollbot
    "Whenever I find my will to live becoming too strong, I read Peter Watts." -- James Nicoll...
  • Commented on Markov Chain Dirty To Me
    That would make a GREAT coffee mug....
  • Commented on But it's not April 1st yet!
    I'm sure Dan Brown is hard at work on the novel as we speak....
  • Commented on But it's not April 1st yet!
    Is this like doing a disk check from within Disk Utility (Mac OS)? No, disk check is fsck, and only checks metadata. What you want in a RAID system is for every block to be checked, and compared with the...
  • Commented on But it's not April 1st yet!
    with a RAID you replace the failed drive and the box copies the information onto the new drive You can have as many disk failures as you have parity drives. So if you have a mirror (two drives), you...
  • Commented on But it's not April 1st yet!
    4tb drives are more mature technology. I prefer more drives, but you're only going to get one parity drive (normally, anyway) with 2, 3, and 4 disk layouts, so that's up to you. Performance, if that matters, will almost certainly...
  • Commented on But it's not April 1st yet!
    AMD/Intel 64-bit is not the only 64-bit out there. Further, "Kernel Patch Protection" and "Driver Signing" are solely software features....
  • Commented on But it's not April 1st yet!
    Can anyone recommend a good storage device for my photo library? I'm pretty concerned about my media library, and since I can't have ZFS on the Mac (grumble grumble grumblecan't talk about it), I went with a G-Tech Thunderbolt...
  • Commented on Follow the money: Apple vs. the FBI
    I don't think it's quite the same as a Single Master Key that unlocks all phones setup I'm sorry, what part of "all the keys should be locked in a single secure location on the manufacturer's premises" does not equate...
  • Commented on Follow the money: Apple vs. the FBI
    There is so much wrong with your proposal that, no, I can't. Well, I suppose I could actually tear down each and every sentence, individually, but I'm not going to -- if you want to take some security training, there...
  • Commented on Follow the money: Apple vs. the FBI
    That's metadata, and not what was being demanded. I'm curious what you think they were asking for?...
  • Commented on Follow the money: Apple vs. the FBI
    No. Just... no. Almost every single concept of that is completely and utterly wrong, with regards to security. It's the level of wrongness that makes every security professional wince, and politicians think they know what's going on....
  • Commented on Follow the money: Apple vs. the FBI
    I feel fairly confident in stating Apple does not want to become a bank. As evidence of my claim, I point to Apple's "loan to own" program, in the US, which offers a 0% interest loan to purchase a new...
