Google Suggests Separating Students With 'Some CS Knowledge' From Novices

naris Re:PC Failure? (305 comments)

I don't think they should be called native American at all. They immigrated from Asia, as did others, some from Europe, some from Africa etc.

Well, if you are going to count people who "immigrated" to America 10K or more years ago as not being native, you might as well call everyone African as that where Homo sapiens originated!

Ask Slashdot: Can a Felon Work In IT?

naris Re:America, land of the free... (717 comments)

Why do you assume he committed a violent crime?

Assuming it's a violent crime is definitely a bad assumption. It could be something non-violent such as theft, which would be a huge disincentive for an IT Department. However, everything is all speculation other than he committed some kind of felony in his misguided youth, which is a very broad category.

UK's National Health Service Moves To NoSQL Running On an Open-Source Stack

naris Re:How quickly will they run back to Oracle? (198 comments)

So, when you have an operation and they wind up performing a sex reassignment surgery instead of an appendectomy due to the lack of atomicity, consistency, isolation and durability in their database, you would be OK with it?

UK's National Health Service Moves To NoSQL Running On an Open-Source Stack

naris Re:How quickly will they run back to Oracle? (198 comments)

They are expecting cost savings due to not paying Oracle licenses, so that strongly implies that there will no longer have any data to be queried in Oracle. The NoSQL solution they are moving to, Riak, is a key-value store that can to full text searches. It is very unlikely to scale when performing full text searches of millions of very long text documents. I do not see this ending well

DMCA Claim Over GPL Non-Compliance Shuts Off Minecraft Plug-Ins

naris Re: What the heck? (354 comments)

You are confused. No commercial entity took GPL code. What happened is that a GPL Project took commercial code. The GPL code is a derivative of the commercial code, the commercial code contains absolutely no GPL code. The GPL code is the mod.

DMCA Claim Over GPL Non-Compliance Shuts Off Minecraft Plug-Ins

naris Re: What the heck? (354 comments)

Using that logic, and the logic of the complainant, then Microsoft will surely have to release Windows source code because GPL software has been written to run on it and now must comply with the GPL.
