Bangladesh Considers Building World's 5th-largest Data Center In Earthquake Zone

Em Adespoton Re:Come on - a 4.5 is nothing (60 comments)

Not only that, but an area that's getting regular 3.5 quakes (although Richter went out of style a long time ago -- what kind of quakes are these?) is probably an area that's got nicely slipping plates and is unlikely to have "the big one". Unlike places like say, Seattle, which will eventually be devastated by a major quake. Regular quakes also mean that their infrastructure is likely set up to deal with quakes, which is also a plus. As long as they aren't putting the thing on oceanfront property or directly on the fault line on the subsiding side of the plate, seems like a pretty good place to put it.

Back To Faxes: Doctors Can't Exchange Digital Medical Records

Em Adespoton Re:Having tried to pull in medical data from an EM (231 comments)

So I'm not at all surprised to learn that doctors are resorting to faxing records. It's almost certainly easier than trying to exchange them digitally.

I thought all faxes were transmitted and received digitally... for the past 20 years. Are there still people storing them on paper?

Normal Facsimile workflow is like this:
1) person pulls up the records, saves them as PDF
2) Person "prints" PDF to fax
3) PDF is converted to CCITT-compatible TIFF format, which is then
4) transmitted as a high quality fax (we're not talking the old 30dpi ones anymore)
5) Recipient's fax machine gets the fax with header info, saves it as PDF and emails it to the appropriate local recipient
6) PDF is saved from email, possibly printed if needed, and filed via the local EMR.

And this is why the data you're looking for is in the hospital's EMR as a PDF: it was received by fax.

Any solution that's going to change this workflow is going to need to handle TIFF and PDF formats, with ClearText-style OCR. That way, people can still use the fax workflow as an alternative to digital data transmission. The system also has to have the ability to pull up the original PDFs in the cases where the OCR failed.

It'll then take at LEAST 5-10 years for the new digital transmission system to work out the kinks and gain enough momentum to retire the old workflow completely.

Back To Faxes: Doctors Can't Exchange Digital Medical Records

Back To Faxes: Doctors Can't Exchange Digital Medical Records

Em Adespoton Re:EPIC? (231 comments)

It must be truly horrendous software if the data store is slaved to the UI.

In a system like this, the interface should be easily rewritten by anyone who wants to, and just talk to the back end using a Standard Query Language.

This is a problem that has been solved many times, and yet you STILL get companies like this who have cornered the market with a solution that's 30 years out of date.

When a replacement system is created, it should at least be backed by a public key infrastructure and use two-factor authentication. It should use a standard back-end database with an open tokenization system, a validation system, and logical data typing.

Otherwise, it's really not much better than digital faxes or email with some analysis software tacked on the front with a pretty UI.

Hundreds of Police Agencies Distributing Spyware and Keylogger

Em Adespoton Re:misleading (70 comments)

The other bit of information that's in TFS is that this key-logger is sending the logged information in clear-text to a third party.

Let me repeat that: it's sending keystrokes in the clear to a third party.

At this point, it doesn't really matter who it's aimed at, who is supposed to read the information, etc. If keystrokes are being logged and the data is being sent in the clear, then that pretty much means you've got a major security hole in your network. Even if malware authors don't exploit it, it makes ComputerCOP a juicy target for "hackers" worldwide, and it also places employees of the service under undue responsibility to keep your information safe.

This stuff appears to be more shoddily constructed than the key-loggers dropped by the likes of the Zeus bot-net. Think about that.

Consumer Reports: New iPhones Not As Bendy As Believed

Yup -- I've always counted myself lucky that I've never had a corner drop -- for me, the iDevices aren't a problem for bending so much as they are for corner impact for the front glass -- I see a lot of devices with the crazed cracks reaching out from a corner of the device. Much more of an issue than any bending that may occur.

Consumer Reports: New iPhones Not As Bendy As Believed

Em Adespoton Re:Useless (302 comments)

Applying a point of pressure in the middle tests general structural integrity. It won't test any specific cutout areas that well (like the volume buttons), but as a general stress test, it does quite well, especially as the testers do continual repeated tests, not just one test in the center. They're testing for materials fatigue and deformation due to torque, as well as impact. Good general test.

But I agree; they should also be testing potential weak points to see how they perform. I'd expect them to do significantly better, as the structure is much more rigid but with the same tensile strength near the edges (less leverage).

Consumer Reports: New iPhones Not As Bendy As Believed

Em Adespoton Re:70 lbs of pressure (302 comments)

Also true for if a 250lb man puts it in his back pocket... unless he also happens to put a ball bearing in his back pocket and then applies all his weight to that one precise spot.

Really... a person's weight != the force placed on a specific spot on an object a person has in their pocket. The entire reason we sit down is to distribute the force along our hips and thighs.

You might have a point if people were standing on their iPhones while they were suspended between two bricks.

Of course, what worried me (and this is where you can get a legit comparison) is that a six year old kid or a medium size dog CAN generate 150lb of force pretty easily.

Here's one data point for you: I've carried an un-protected iPod Touch 4g in my back pocket since around 2010 -- no scratches, no bends. The thing is about the same thickness as the iPhone 6 (0.26 in thick vs iPhone 0.27 in), and only a slightly smaller form factor. I've only come close to putting 50lbs of force on a single point a few times (landing on a pointy rock) -- result was that it got some stuck pixels for a few days that eventually returned to normal.

Ask Slashdot: Swift Or Objective-C As New iOS Developer's 1st Language?

Em Adespoton Re:Obj-C (314 comments)

It was my understanding that if you want "complete" control, you still need to use ObjC, and that Swift was for dashboards, things previously known as WebApps, and other lightweight situations where you aren't actually doing anything novel, just packaging an interface to a datastore or moving sprites around.

That said, Swift is just as good on inheritance as ObjC, and does garbage collection correctly (benefits of a CLR).

ObjC has been tuned to OS X/iOS, and if you write in ObjC, you should be able to make a single back end that's easily portable to OS X as well as iOS; Swift would be more for iOS only.

I really do like the real-time iteration available in Swift though.

That said, my opinion must be crap, because I'm older than Java too :D I still like Pascal and Common LISP, but wouldn't write a modern application in them (flashback to writing Avara mods in the 90's using ClarisWorks). Most stuff I write these days is in C or Python.

FAA Clears Movie and TV Drones For Takeoff

If a company can do it, I can. Its just a person after all.

True and not true: anyone can become an LLC. However, not just everyone has their own time slot to lobby the government. THAT's what lets them do it.

If a reporter has some right, so do I.

Reporter's rights these days come down to two things: 1) press card and 2) demonstration after you're already in court that you were acting as a journalist at the time. These days, that's not even standing up as a defense for some journalists with a press card, so you're right -- reporters have the same rights you do, and they'll be ignored in the same ways.

Given tax breaks to movies and the NFL, there is so much free content out there. Govt sponsored = crown copyright = no copyright.

You just leaked your commonwealthness there -- the US doesn't have crown copyright, as they rejected the crown for a republic.

Well, to be fair, Flash plugin support IS a bug in IE. And Apple actually has bash as part of the vanilla install -- attacks against it can be made against an install that's just completed -- so Apple is in some way at fault for bundling a default shell that isn't fully hardened.

Drones Reveal Widespread Tax Evasion In Argentina

Em Adespoton Re:Someone's going to complain (208 comments)

You're right -- it depends upon how it was done. If they were just surveying an area where there were rumours of expensive houses, and then cross-referenced that against actual claims, that should be fine. If they were taking the claims of all rich people with undeveloped land and visiting those areas to see if the land was actually undeveloped, that wouldn't be a survey, that'd be an investigation.

Of course, in either case, it'd be legal. The only way it wouldn't be was if they were intentionally targeting an individual in any way they could (like the US did with Al Capone).

Lesson: don't file fraudulent returns.

Euclideon Teases Photorealistic Voxel-Based Game Engine

Em Adespoton Re:Meh (132 comments)

I think the stuff at the end is fairly close to photorealistic, assuming the photo is low-resolution. What it *isn't* is camera-realistic. Their camera engine uses pans and zooms that in no way reflect how a physical camera would move through real space -- this makes the entire effect look fake.

What they needed to do to make the demo a "wow" demo is put the camera inside the physics engine, and give it the mass and movement of a real camera. The results would have been much better.

The one bit of the video where I thought "hey, that's actually decent" was on the zoom-in on the stair tread, as the zoom was similar to what you'd get on a camera on a tripod, and the stair looked pretty photorealistic. For the rest, our brains enter the "uncanny valley" not because of the images presented, but because of the surreal way they are presented.

Apple now relaying all FaceTime calls due to lost patent dispute

Em Adespoton Em Adespoton writes  |  about a year ago

Em Adespoton (792954) writes "Before the VirnetX case, nearly all FaceTime calls were done through a system of direct communication. Essentially, Apple would verify that both parties had valid FaceTime accounts and then allow their two devices to speak directly to each other over the Internet, without any intermediary or "relay" servers. However, a small number of calls—5 to 10 percent, according to an Apple engineer who testified at trial—were routed through "relay servers."

At the August 15 hearing, a VirnetX lawyer stated that Apple had logged "over half a million calls" complaining about the quality of FaceTime [since disabling direct connections]."

So we'll give as much detail as the law allows us to about the specifics. I will say that what we've been looking for is, in particular, proven technology. We want to get high-tech in the very best of the 21st century, but we're not interested in performing science experiments on the border. What we want to do is use tools that have been proven in other contexts to have the ability to perform and to have the durability we need in the border.

JHL Continued... 0.0.56 Onward.

Em Adespoton Em Adespoton writes  |  about 10 years ago Current version: JHL Available Here!.

JHL, the Java Hotline Client.
Slashdot archived my previous entry, so here's a new one. You can find the previous one here.

Send someone an e-mail with this link!

There's an official jhl website now, so these slashlogs aren't really needed anymore. If you have bugs to report, leave them as comments for the version release you find the bugs in. For feature requests, leave them in the comments of the version you're currently using. Be sure to note if it's a BUG REPORT or FEATURE REQUEST at the top of the comment.

For those who can't be bothered with the official site:

Here's some documentation for JHL as it stands now, since some things can be a bit confusing.

JHL is a Java Hotline Client first and foremost, although it also does rudimentary IRC, and looks to handle AIM chat in the future. There is very little built-in documentation, and its main audience is experienced hotline users who want a more powerful client to use, want to get rid of the spyware that is the official client, and/or want a uniform client that works on all the unixes (including Linux and MacOS X) as well as MS Windows. JHL is currently a closed-source beta, but once electron feels he has made it feature complete, and stable it will be released as open source.
Why not release it as open source now? For obvious reasons -- projects which do not start as open source which are released under a FOSS license too early tend to fizzle and die. Plus, electron wants to clean up his code before others can look at it and critique it ;)

All the following is true as of version 0.1.

First off, the AIM client hasn't been designed yet. It doesn't do anything.

Second, the IRC client is REALLY buggy -- a lot of things will lock up the entire monolithic app if you try them.

Now on to the Hotline client:

There is now a way to save settings files.

In order to create new bookmarks, you enter your connection settings in the connect dialog, and click the save button to save a new connect file.

The preferences save in the current session when you click the save button at the bottom of the preferences pane, and to make them load on startup, click the "Save to file (defaults)" button.

One other quirk is that you can't do some things by double clicking -- for example, download files -- and this is considered by some to be a good thing. However, some double click features are being added -- you can now double-click in the user list to send a message.

On to the description of the interface:

The little hand above the userlist is an ignore hand; click it while someone is selected to ignore them, click again for their chat to start showing up again.

Nicknames can be tab completed in chat; just start typing someone's nickname, hit tab, and it will autocomplete.

In the file tab, refresh refreshes the subcontents of the currently selected item; folder counts belong to the parent item, and you can not upload to a selected file; you must select the folder you wish to upload to first

There is a hotline 1.2.3-compatible folder download/upload feature. Select a folder, and it will download/upload all files in that folder.
NOTE: it will NOT download subfolders or their contents.

As an additional note to downloading, double clicking does not work. To download, you must select the file/folder(s) to download, and then either click the download button or right click and select download from the contextual menu.

For Windows users, do the following to create a shortcut that's launchable from the start menu:

select the jar file and create a shortcut

get the properties of the shortcut, and replace the Target line with

C:\WINDOWS\system32\javaw.exe -jar jhl.jar

change name and custom icon as desired.

All other hidden and unobvious features are left to the user to discover at this time; maybe I'll make another update sometime.

Finally, my requests:

Red highlighting on the chat/transfer tabs when new stuff is available. For chat, it would be new chat, for the transfers tab, it would be new items in queue and transfer finished (removed from queue).

As you can see, it is still the case that people tend to give points to posts that match their own "common sense" opinion, rather than posts that actually bring something new to the discussion, like facts, references, new ways of thinking, etc.

The sad thing is, people responded to my post in an informed manner, and many have been fully ignored, even though their points are much more valid than my unsubstantiated comment.

Because of this, I guess I'll continue to read slashdot at the +1 level; the +3 and higher posts aren't worth looking at (I hope someone noticed the obvious about this sentence).
