The Dismal State of SATCOM Security

jon3k Uh no (52 comments)

> Anyone talking on a sat phone is by definition interesting to the government - any government.

Uh, no. I live on the coast and every big (especially charter) fishing boat has sat phones. Most of it the conversations are: "Yes honey I'm still at the office looks like I'm going to be REALLY late".

oVirt 3.4 Means Management, VMs Can Live On the Same Machine

jon3k Re:Still trying to wrap my head... (51 comments)

Uh it's pretty simple. Take 50 relatively idle servers. Combine them onto two physical servers as VMs. Spend 1/25th the money on servers and have complete hardware redundancy for every host which is now a vm. What is there not to get?

Used IT Equipment Can Be Worth a Fortune (Video)

jon3k Re:Come on, what a ridiculous "article" (79 comments)

So what other online market do we have for big, commercial IT gear? We buy a lot of stuff from NHR but it's nearly impossible to see what our existing gear is actually worth. Typically it's lots of googling, checking ebay, getting quotes for our existing gear from vendors like NHR and others.

So if he's just another "johnny-come-lately" then who is already doing what they're doing? Because I'd love to be able to go to one place and check prices of our old gear.

Operation Wants To Mine 10% of All New Bitcoins

jon3k Re:Current value of Bitcoin (275 comments)

Depends on the cost of the loans compared to what you could do with the cash. Worst case scenario the whole thing collapses and you fold up shop and go home. I'm sure it's incorporated, he won't be personally liable for the debt. Just pay yourself a nice salary while you're at it in case everything goes tits up.

Why Movie Streaming Services Are Unsatisfying — and Will Stay That Way

jon3k Don't care (323 comments)

I'm going to watch whatever movie I want at home. When they movie studios get their shit together and give me a way to pay them to do the same thing, I will. I really don't give a shit either way.

Docker Turns 1: What's the Future For Open Source Container Tech?

jon3k Re:Subjects suck. (65 comments)

That's so you'll look it up and then be "in the know" by having "discovered it yourself". It's just a thinly veiled spam story.

Microsoft Dumping License Fees For Windows Phone?

jon3k Re:Generic Hardware (125 comments)

Ever since the tethering settlement the open access rules require Verizon to allow any device on their network (the 700Mhz LTE block that is).

Bringing Speed Reading To the Web

jon3k Re:It does let you read faster... (47 comments)

Just need to build a good interface. I'd like to see a "clutch" - a button I hold down to read and let go to stop. Then easy rewind/forward. Maybe a button that moves back to the last punctuation mark? I think SOME of the problems we could solve with good UI design.

How Do You Backup 20TB of Data?

jon3k Re:If you want to hoard bits... (983 comments)

You'd need 25 tapes (800GB) and a full backup or restore would take 3.8 days (peak theoretical 60MB/s). Depending on the rate of change this may not be viable.

jon3k Re:Legal strategy? (406 comments)

It's just a bargaining position. Samsung will counter with something lower and they'll meet somewhere in the middle.

The $100,000 Device That Could Have Solved Missing Plane Mystery

jon3k Ok (461 comments)

Tell that the the families of passengers on Flight MH370.

Ok, I'll tell them: Sorry we're too cheap to foot the bill and this is an obvious puff piece by a PR company to convince us all we need to spend millions (billions over time) to outfit every commercial plane with this device.

Android Beats iOS As the Top Tablet OS

jon3k Re:And yet apple sells more tablets than anybody (487 comments)

It's garbage $100 tablets, or less. Resistive and very low resolution screens with sub 1Ghz processors. Things that are given away as gifts or used once and never touched again. Just cheap shit being cranked out in China.

Ask Slashdot: Modern Web Development Applied Science Associates Degree?

jon3k Jesus H Christ (246 comments)

Not everyone building C.R.U.D. web apps needs a fucking degree. It's practically a trade skill. What we need is a mass of "good enough" programmers to do 90% of the grunt work out there and do it CHEAP.

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.

apache + rsync = lawsuit"
