I'd avoid using Fog Computing because Cisco already claimed that phrase.

ICANN Offers Fix For Domain Name Collisions

Amen. This entire thing is the most transparent money grab by ICANN I've ever seen. And that's saying a lot.

Snowden: NSA Working On Autonomous Cyberwarfare Bot

jon3k Re:A digital version of the "Doomsday Machine" (194 comments)

What makes you think the NSA thinks they are the only ones working on this? In fact, wouldn't knowing other countries are working on something similar be even MORE of a reason to build it?

The Quiet Before the Next IT Revolution

jon3k Re:A rather simplistic hardware-centric view (145 comments)

I kind of agree with TFA here -- hear me out here. We went through a pretty fundamental shift in the datacenter over the last 10 years or so, and it's finally settling down. Of course there will be constant evolutionary progressions, updates, patches, etc we're basically done totally reinventing the datacenter. 10GbE, virtualization, the rise of SANs and converged data/storage, along with public/private/hybrid clouds - these huge transformative shifts have mostly happened already and we're settling into this new architecture. That's not to say there won't be patches and upgrades, but fundamentally, from a architectural design perspective, things have basically settled down in the datacenter. The major pieces and components of the datacenter are pretty much set at this point and now we'll just continue to innovate on top of this infrastructure.

Ask Slashdot: Bulletproof Video Conferencing For Alzheimers Home?

jon3k Re:Thoughts (194 comments)

Most have small screens and are pretty costly. By using one (or a couple) inexpensive TVs on carts, we can move them around the building as necessary, so we can get a lot of use out of them. Is there a particular model you've had success with? I'd definitely be interested in hearing about it. I'm definitely not opposed to the concept in theory. And we have a large Cisco IP voice deployment (~1500 registered endpoints in Cisco CUCM) so I've only really looked a tthe Cisco product offerings (read: $$$).

Ask Slashdot: Bulletproof Video Conferencing For Alzheimers Home?

jon3k Re:Thoughts (194 comments)

The biggest problem we have with iPads are:

  • - Tendancy to "walk off" (read: stolen, "lost")
  • - Many of our residents don't have the capability of holding or using the device. This is mostly SNF with high acuity compared to ALF
  • - Small screen, can be difficult for them to see

And I have zero problems with Apple. We've got just under 500 iOS devices (iPhone and iPad) deployed organization wide (managed via Air-Watch). And we actually have complete 100% blanket 802.11n WiFi coverage of all of our centers. So, coverage is a non-issue. I'd see the biggest hurdle being just their ability to hold the device, especially for an extended period of time. I think for an ALF/ILF it would make a lot more sense.

Ask Slashdot: Life Beyond the WRT54G Series?

jon3k Easy (427 comments)

Virtual machine running GNS3 with the Cisco IOS 12.x mainline code for a 7206VXR. Then just setup bridging and add the IP for the gns3 node as your default GW. All done with one NIC. Enterprise grade router running on your desktop. With modern multicore CPUs it runs great and has all the features you'd ever need (eg Zone Based Policy Firewall, QoS, ACL, policy routing and it can even function as an SBC running CUBE code).

Long-Wave Radar Can Take the Stealth From Stealth Technology

jon3k Re:Not news (275 comments)

Partially correct. It was only seen because the bomb bay doors were open:

From Wikipedia:

In 2005, Colonel Zoltán Dani confirmed in an interview suggested that those modifications involved using long wavelengths, allowing them to detect the aircraft when the wheel well or bomb bay doors were open.

Uh, what? F-22 has the radar cross section of a ball bearing. It's smaller than a bird on radar.

Long-Wave Radar Can Take the Stealth From Stealth Technology

jon3k Re:Might cause a re-thinking of the F-35 (275 comments)

Let's not forget about IRST. Turns out no matter how stealthy you build a plane it still has to ignite hydrocarbons to stay in the air.

The question I have about long wave radar is: can they mount it in a jet or is it only ground/ship based? Can it be identified and destroyed by an AGM-88 HARM missile? Do we expect to send F-35 into any country or war zone that would have these radars deployed? The military isn't ever just one plane or ship, it's a series of interconnected systems designed to defeat different kinds of threats.

Ask Slashdot: Bulletproof Video Conferencing For Alzheimers Home?

jon3k Thoughts (194 comments)

I work in IT in LTPAC (nursing and rehab). This is something we've discussed many times. The best model we've found is a TV with Skype (either PC or SmartTV) on a cart. Family schedules a time and staff (eg CNA) brings cart into the room and answers call. I'm in a higher acuity environment most likely (mostly SNF, some ALF) so this might not be ideal for your environment. We do have "Memory Care Units" at some locations. Generally it's a specific hall that has some additional accommodations (read: Wanderguard).

Reply to this post with contact info if you'd like to discuss in detail. I can talk to our reimbursement folks, but I believe this is billable via Medicare and Medicaid.

All Your Content Distribution Are Belonw to Akamai

jon3k jon3k writes  |  more than 6 years ago

anonymous dude (691256) writes "Shares of Limelight Networks Inc. are trading down $2.23 (35.01%) to $4.13 this afternoon as the company has lost a patent suit filed by rival Akamai Technologies Inc. Limelight had been doing pretty well, in a sense, having succeeded in knocking two patents off the docket. But a jury ruled today that Limelight violated the remaining patent, No. 6,108,703, titled "Global Hosting System," which covers the basic architecture of a content delivery network.
