Ask Slashdot: Handling Patented IP In a Job Interview?

Dogers Re:You guessed it: It depends (224 comments)

For example, what happens if you build a system whose maintenance relies on continued use of that IP after you leave? Are they forced to abandon the system that you built for them as part of your job? Since you could (or should) have known about this in advance, your voluntary use of this IP could possibly- if not probably- be construed as some form of implicit offer and/or agreement. What if they then want to sell that system commercially? What if they *only* want to sell it commercially because it lets them use- and build upon- your IP on the same terms as a work for hire?

You sue them for not having a license!

That seems to be how things work in the big industry world..

Ask Slashdot: Practical Alternatives To Systemd?

Dogers Re:I've been toying with rolling my own distro (533 comments)

Does it have anything along the lines of yum verify (http://bencane.com/2013/12/23/yum-plugins-verifying-packages-and-configurations-with-yum-verify/) or yum history (http://www.cyberciti.biz/faq/yum-history-command/)?

Genuine question! Last time I properly used FreeBSD I don't think pkg_add even existed? Have downloaded the 10-current ISO and will give it a try in a VM over the weekend..

Heartbleed Coder: Bug In OpenSSL Was an Honest Mistake

Dogers Re:Not malicious but not honest? (447 comments)

I know what you're saying, but to me if you're coding to a specification (even if he wrote it himself!) which says "if X then Y", surely you should create a test to ensure it meets the spec..?

Or okay, he didn't create the test, but perhaps someone else should have before integrating the patch. But yeah, hindsight, 20/20, etc :)

Heartbleed Coder: Bug In OpenSSL Was an Honest Mistake

Dogers Re:Not malicious but not honest? (447 comments)

If the RFC says the request should be dropped if the length doesn't match, surely that would be a specifically required test case?

Microsoft Will Squeeze Datacenters On Price of Windows Server

Dogers Re:They'll gladly pay (274 comments)

you cannot fail a Windows Server instance over from one physical Windows Datacenter server to another and then fail it back in under 30 days without violating the license of the Windows Server instance.

If both servers have datacenter licenses, then you can.

Server 2008: http://download.microsoft.com/download/F/C/A/FCAB58A9-CCAD-4E0A-A673-88A5EE74E2CC/Windows_Server_2008_Virtual_Tech-VL_Brief-Jan_09.docx
P10, paragraph 5 above the box
Or Server 2012: http://download.microsoft.com/download/7/7/0/7707E736-4557-4310-9709-87358F7E6D1A/WindowsServer2012VirtualTech_VLBrief.pdf
P8, paragraph 2

... licenses may only be reassigned to new hardware after 90 days. This, however, does not restrict the dynamic movement of virtual OSEs between licensed servers. As long as the servers are licensed and do not simultaneously run more instances than the number for which they are licensed, you are free to use VMotion and System Center Virtual Machine Manager to move virtualized instances between licensed servers at will.

Dogers Re:The TSA needs to be stopped (427 comments)

But who decides when Sovereignty starts? Obviously it's the guys with the bigger guns, but just because a land is populated by an unsophisticated society (by european standards) that did not value land ownership, shouldn't mean that they lose control of their land and get relegated to small reservations with a fraction of the territory they used to live in.

I say, do you have a flag?
