Started when I was 7, on a VIC20.
Sold my first app, a POS system based on a couple of Amiga 500, when I was 15.
First regular job during first year at University, made me never complete Uni...
@linuxxx Not exactly. Schrems II has deemed Privacy Shield invalid.
But, if you have a Data Protection Agreement (DPA) and also the EU Standard Contractual Clauses (the SCC), it is still ok to store PII data at a US-owned facility (whether it's physically in the US or placed somewhere else but directly owned by a US company).
This is why we don't see MS, Adobe, Oracle, Salesforce or any other of the companies supplying MarTech systems doing radical restructuring. It is still legal, as long as you have the right contracts in place.
I'm working with exactly this, and the first week after Schrems II our major clients in EU where screaming loudly (especially their legal departments). After having gone through the details of all contracts, everyone is calm again.
That is pure gold IMHO. But, to give it the attention it needs - one should not speed read it, but instead go and read up on details mentioned as you go.
And, re-read it in a couple of years, it really makes a difference in comprehension.
@IntrusionCM well, here's the reason EISA is still supported in Linux
There has been tries to remove it after, but they all come down to someone stating they have EISA equipment they would like to be able to use - and Linus being the nerd he is, thinks it's fun to support those users.
And, since the sysfs rewrite of the EISA support, it's really low on resources. Especially if you have no EISA stuff connected...
@netikras So the Windows instance is a VM? Which Hypervisor?
And it's the VMs resources you've increased?
@netikras You need to find the actual culprit here - the process which uses WMI in a bad way. Raising limits on WMI will not help.
Check here: https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us...
Or here for even more details: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us...
@rantbook WMI provider is essential to all applications.
The reason for it using high CPU or disk, is because some driver or app is misbehaving.
Follow the instructions in the answer on this page, to find the culprit in your system - could be as easy as you having to update some driver.
@dder that was exactly my point.
@abkcode It might be a bit hard to find Front End Java developers?
@pyaf Lenovo only acquired the PC business of IBM. That was actually a small part of IBM's total business.
@dodomo Ouch, that's just horrible.
@svgPhoenix or just use the Outlook app instead...
Perhaps your theme song for a few days:
It is real, and not a new word either. The meaning and usage has expanded over the years.
@dder From Wikipedia
@HRT-713 64-bit what? X86, ARM, PowerPC...
Or you could just download the published DB dump https://archive.org/details/...
I know, not as fun as creating a spider, but you'll get more metadata than is visible.
@Condor That's actually the thing though. One reason for so many 3rd party partitioning tools existing for Windows, is that they can handle a lot which the built in mechanisms can't.
They use existing features, which MS own tools just don't do - for whatever reason.
NTFS as such is really bad taking orders on where to physically store a file/block, and if you at the same time want the result of moving a file - to be a defragged file - that's even worse.
Most of the 3rd party tools can do this, and some do it better (faster) than others, due to planning the whole execution path ahead of time - and not just doing one step at the time.
If you want to have some fun brain training, write a defragger for NTFS - your brain will go through a lot of interesting stages, such as motivation - disbelief - implosion - explosion - rage - disbelief - happiness.
@Condor I'd really not use ntfsresize or GParted and expect high performance. Using a good partition tool in Windows will work a lot better, usually (and Windows Disk Management is not a good tool).
For example: https://partitionwizard.com/free-pa...
Having said that - Windows tends to be a PITA when it comes to modifying disk structures using USB connected storage, when there's data there. The same disk, connected directly to SATA will have changes executed magnitudes faster.
We started with hot-desking a couple of months ago. All seats have the same chair, and there's a monitor and docking station.
(Almost - see below) all have personal laptops.
Front-End developers and Art Directors (who use Macs - and need specific monitors) have fixed seats.
The company has four sections, and each section has their own area. But you are actually free to take a seat anywhere.
We also have three project group areas, with 6 seats each, where members in a client team - but from different sections - can sit together and work.
It actually works great!
The reasoning behind it was simple - about 15% of our staff (not the same 15% from week to week) are working on-site as consultants - so we would have a lot of empty seats if all would have their own seat.
@gitpush The development trees are on other locations.
The mail-list is only for discussions.

If you really need color calibration for work, just invest in a Spyder5Express.
Takes about a minute per screen, and beats what you're able to do using only your eyes as a tool, with a magnitude.
@RTRMS It seems to be very actively developed for not being a developed software...
@Dollique If you had checked the link, you'd seen its the source for Xee, an image viewer for Mac OS and iOS. Its also more than years since it was touched, so it might very well be that there were no libraries to read PSD files at that time, thus they had to develop it themselves.
@tbodt bit, you can actually enter Wiki markup or Markdown directly in the Wysiwyg editor, it will convert it to RTF on the fly unfortunately, but it does work. Just tried it.
@tbodt ah, right my bad.
Well there are addon to help you out.
https://marketplace.atlassian.com/p... for example.
@Linux Cool! Is paf also attending? If so, you're going to have a very interesting session no matter what.
@leksyib super computing mainly, like weather forecasting, astronomy, climate modeling, hydrological modeling, fluid dynamics...
Fortran lives and evolves, probably Fortran 2018 will come this year.
