That is quite literally the role of the Supreme Court. See Article III.

Ask Slashdot: Why Can't Google Block Spam In Gmail?

keltor Re:WTF? (265 comments)

Even using IMAP, you simply move the emails to [Gmail]/Spam and it's the exact same thing as hitting the Report Spam button (per Google at least.)

Ask Slashdot: Why Can't Google Block Spam In Gmail?

keltor Re:You vs everyone (265 comments)

Gmail handles all of that just fine, the OP is simply using a client that doesn't understand the folders properly.

Torvalds: No Opinion On Systemd

keltor Re:well said! (385 comments)

Which if you take a look at the systemd source code you'll find it's that way as well.

Reno Selected For Tesla Motors Battery Factory

keltor Re:Stop Making Up Words! (157 comments)

Given that there's 1million H1B visa holders in the US and there's a hell of a lot more STEM workers, it's probably not all that big of a deal.

Canonical's Troubles With the Free Software Community

keltor Re:They may not officially coordinate (155 comments)

Back when these guys were best buddies with KDE and GNOME, both orgs thought this was a perfectly fine plan. Things have since heavily soured.

How Do You Backup 20TB of Data?

keltor Re:reduce the amount (983 comments)

I have 30 TB of Movies (Ripped via x264 @ 2.5GB/hr - 1080p) - I have the data stored on my NAS using zfs and I am seeing about a 35% savings. Now that's a LOT of savings to go down to 20TB. My NAS has plenty of space though since I have 45x3TB of disks.

How Do You Backup 20TB of Data?

keltor Re:reduce the amount (983 comments)

Let's say that the rebuiilds CAN cause additional failures, not that it *often* does. I've done maybe 500-600 RAID5 rebuilds and only had two times that there were additional failures, both with consumer SATA/EIDE drives. Most of the RAID failures I've seen have been due to no monitoring and having failed drives for months or even years.

Tesla Model S Caught Fire While Parked and Unplugged

keltor Re:Not from the car? (329 comments)

The only electronics in the front are the lights, some sensors and the power steering stuff. Everything else is in the back. The front wheels seem undamaged, so nothing there. I'd think most likely it was either something on the floor (they have a Lexus, which could have leaked and tada oil fire.)

Will Microsoft IIS Overtake Apache?

keltor Re:why not? (303 comments)

More than a few of those Apaches are actually Apache on Windows. The problems with IIS are mostly IIS.

Will Microsoft IIS Overtake Apache?

keltor Re: why not? (303 comments)

Definitely not SQL injection hacks, but poor PHP code can result in a root level RCE. It's mostly rare now-a-days though since most PHP is run in a userlimited or nobody fashion even if the code is bad, it can only affect the "site". None the less the number of "consumer" bots has always WAAAAAY exceeded the number of servers - actually probably the number of physical servers that exist in total.

Will Microsoft IIS Overtake Apache?

keltor Re: why not? (303 comments)

For a LOT of this it's just nginx being used by things like cloudflare and similar services, the actual site is still running Apache. At this point, I'm not 100% sure what in any reasonable configuration Apache would offer over nginx.

California Regulator Seeks To Shut Down 'Learn To Code' Bootcamps

keltor Re:Let Us Control You! (374 comments)

Not sure if you realize, but these camps are typical of private education that doesn't give you "credits" in that they cost an arm and a leg. They cost as much as my Master's Degree cost me.

Twitter Marks Clean Sites As Harmful, Breaks Links

keltor Are they really safe? (103 comments)

People talk about so and so site being safe when Google marks them unsafe, but time and time again it's shown that those sites WERE in fact infected - usually from a third-party ad network.

Talking On the Phone While Driving Not So Dangerous After All

keltor Re:So you mean to tell me .. (418 comments)

No, but they'd be bad drivers causing accidents even if they didn't have phones. Accident rates didn't go up when phones became popular and didn't go down when states banned them. The drivers are the issue, not the devices.

Using Java In Low Latency Environments

keltor Lots of Different Languages are Used (371 comments)

I suppose as long as the programmers are ACTUALLY equally skilled it would be fine, but from what I've actually experienced in the real programming world, the C++ programmers are generally all fairly experienced skilled programmers who write effective efficient code. With Java programmers, I have seen quite the opposite, sure there are those experienced skilled programmers who could compete, but a LOT of Java programmers even ones with equal 10-12 years of experience, suck monkey balls at actually writing efficient code. Instead they write code that's JUUUST good enough. That said I know a number of people in the HFT market and the programming languages are ALL over the place, sure some of them are in Java and some are in C++, but there's not any one dominating language: there's plenty of Python, Scala, Perl, Groovy, and probably every language you can image. I believe Perl is actually still the biggest language because a lot of the financial analysts can actually write it directly and so do stuff that the front end systems don't normally allow.

Visual Studio vs. Eclipse: a Programmer's Comparison

keltor No point (543 comments)

There's no point in comparing the two. There's almost 0 crossover between what they are developing for except for a few Node.JS and C++ developers and even those are pretty rare.
