"Case in point NoSQL. Who had it first? Open Source"
Depends how you define NoSQL. DynamoDB paper was published circa 2007 but the product is not open source.
What open source product did you have in mind that defines NoSQL? BerkeleyDB?
NodeJS, PHP, Ruby are the village idiots... not really worth bragging about :) But beyond these, yes, some very impressive platforms are open source.

Server Farms Flourish In Iowa: Microsoft Plows $700M More Into Des Moines
The only metric being optimised is profit for $BIGCO's owners; the wellbeing and prosperity of Iowans is irrelevant. Ask Indian farmers how Coca-Cola bottling plants (and bottled water plants) are helping THEM.
You're aware that data centres like this employ about 50 people, right? This is not a business that sustains the local economy.

Ask Slashdot: How To Determine If a Video Has Been Faked?
" I think smoking crack is extremely out-of-character for him"
"video of drunken bumblingness, ..., or just general belligerence"
—it has that *as well*, including slurs against Justin Trudeau, gays, and the kids he spends his afternoons coaching instead of working.
"kudos to the epic trolls who started the rumour"
—The video is not a "rumour". It's out there and has been seen by journalists who didn't have the $200K on them at the time.
MariaDB vs. MySQL: A Performance Comparison
That post is not very useful or informative. While I would like to believe that MariaDB has done clever things with query planning and execution, it would need a much more rigorous investigation than posed here. For example, he doesn't even explain the form of his queries and the nature of his schema.
It would also require benchmarking against, say, PostgreSQL, which looks very attractive versus versions of MySQL, for both technical and licensing reasons.

Microsoft Creative Director 'Doesn't Get' Always-On DRM Concerns
Concrete is much more practical than carpet, and often more attractive. I have parquet here, but concrete would work just as well. Carpet would be yuck. It's also not used in tropical climates (i.e. much of Mexico) because it would quickly rot.
Carpet is just an unintelligent bourgeois meme that got out of control, just like the personal automobile, TV, and cell phones.

Widenius on "selfless" quest to destroy GPL MySQL "in order to save it"
It's not "his baby" any more!
And the "selfless" argument accepts as a given that Oracle will let MySQL die on the vine. There are many rational reasons why they would not.
If Oracle's intentions are opaque, Widenius' motives are no less opaque. He risks serious embarrassment himself by advocating that the EU, as Deus ex machina, strip the GPL, the last layer of protection for the MySQL community and platform. To that extent this issue is *very much* "about Open Source"!
It's time to let go and build "what comes after MySQL". Even a casual observer can see conventional RDBMS architectures straining to keep up with today's data environments, hence the growth of the NoSQL movement. If a fraction of the talent already shed by MySQL AB, combined with the brains at Primebase, and all the other community contributors can rise to that challenge, Oracle may easily find itself on the defensive once more - to the market's gain!
Mr Widenius, you've created one technology so incredibly disruptive that Oracle (the market leader) finally had to buy it - why not move on and create the next one? You already have the support and respect of geeks and suits alike. But you won't keep it by insisting on this contrarian, easily misconstrued campaign.

Uses for self JOIN: 11) winning streak
Cluber on #mysql wanted to find the longest winning streak in a series of matches, like this:
mysql> select * from m;
| id | winner | loser |
| 29 | A | B |
| 30 | A | C |
| 31 | C | B |
| 32 | B | A |
| 33 | A | D |
| 34 | B | C |
| 35 | C | D |
| 36 | E | D |
8 rows in set (0.00 sec)
Longest winning streak per user is the longest series of wins by a user before they lose a match. The wins need not be consecutive. Here is a SQL solution:
mysql> select Streak.winner, max(Streak.cnt)
select m0.id, m0.winner, count(Game.id) as cnt
from m m0
select m1.id, min(m2.id) as minid
from m m1
left join m m2 on m2.loser = m1.winner
and m2.id > m1.id
group by m1.id
) Loss on Loss.id = m0.id
join m Game on Game.winner = m0.winner
and Game.id >= m0.id
and (Loss.minid is null
or Game.id < Loss.minid)
group by m0.id
group by Streak.winner;
| winner | max(Streak.cnt) |
| A | 2 |
| B | 2 |
| C | 1 |
| E | 1 |

generate Solaris package file lists directly with install-sh
As part of the Solaris pkg creation process, a prototype file is created listing every file and directory created in the process of installing the package.
There are various ways to extract this information, but not all are convenient. By patching about 12 lines of install-sh we can generate the prototype file directly (as /tmp/prototype), with appropriate user/group/mode settings. In parallel we generate a simple file list (/tmp/files) that can be used to safely 'uninstall' the package during experimentation with packaging.

This leaves the package installed, creates /tmp/prototype ready for packaging - accomplished roughly like this:
$ echo i pkginfo=./pkginfo >>prototype
$ cat pkginfo
NAME=Dovecot IMAP/POP3 server
DESC=Dovecot Secure IMAP/POP3 server, by Timo Sirainen
$ pkgmk -r `pwd`
$ cd /var/spool/pkg/
$ pkgtrans -s `pwd` /tmp/TLGRdovecot-1.1.14
Remove the installed files (I suggest reviewing the file list first!)
# rm -fr $(< /tmp/files )
# xargs rm -fr < /tmp/files
Retired Gates "too busy, important" to finish deposition
Watch Gates lie through his teeth in Novell vs Microsoft - until the Microsoft side cut the deposition short. Another appointment? Or did they not like the line of questioning? Groklaw reports; you decide. But as the Novell lawyer remarks,
I ... can't remember a single case where I was able to extract a monetary settlement from an opponent by harassing its Board Chairman through a deposition. Perhaps there is something deeper at work here.
Mr. Gates is one of the richest and most powerful persons in this country. His foundation is engaged in good works. Yet we are all equal under the law. Despite his central role in this action, we have requested nothing more than would be expected of any other litigant, a deposition not exceeding 7 hours in length in accordance with Fed. R. Civ. P. 30(b)(1).
This cartoon sums up the true situation very well.
Cloud computing is emerging as the computational and storage paradigm for ultra-scale data and analytics. A cloud is a pool of virtualized, commodity computer resources accessible via a Web-based interface in conjunction with a highly automated mechanism for managing those resources. Upon this infrastructure, a computational framework brings analytics to the data, effectively implementing a key tenant of cloud computing - ingest data once, move data rarely, and re-use data often. Thus cloud enables the rapid configuration and allocation of vast computational resources while supporting massively parallel processing over petabytes of distributed data to deliver both agility and power at scale. Google, the progenitor of cloud, and others have proven the extraordinary capability of cloud for specific applications within certain well defined domains (e.g. web search/index). Within the Intelligence Community (IC), substantial cloud computing initiatives already underway are poised to do similarly, tailoring cloud for specific objectives. Considered more broadly however, as an enterprise wide platform for the IC, several aspects of cloud are in need of further research and development. Principal among these is the cloud analytic tool set. Analysts working high op-tempo missions down range tell us the most rapid time scale is not of the data or the mission, rather it is the frequency with which they must change the way they view and manipulate the data. For these warfighters, sophisticated tools built nationally are obsolete the day they get deployed. What they clamor for are basic, elemental tools that they can apply in diverse contexts and compose into workflows that help them do their job easier and faster. This SBIR seeks to develop an analytic tool set designed to operate within cloud computing infrastructure, on cloud data. In addition to being cloud-native, the set of tools should reflect a basis-set of functions that together span the range of analytic activity. Each tool should capture / enable a basic element of analytic activity while presenting minimal dependencies on other elements or on application specifics. By developing a complete set of cloud-native tools that may be used independently or composed into workflows to build analytic product, this SBIR aims to provide the warfighter with the means to harness the full power of cloud in the face of rapid change.

Joe the Plumber as spokesman for Israel
Now we know there's something lower than Z-list on the celebrity scale. Be careful with your next tax return, Joe.
Update - but wait, there's more...
To be honest with you, I don't think journalists should be anywhere allowed war (sic). I mean, you guys report where our troops are at, you report what's happening day-to-day, you make a big deal out of it. I think it's asinine. I liked back in World War I and World War II, when you'd go to the theater and you'd see your troops on the screen and everyone would be real excited and happy for them. Now everyone's got an opinion and wants to down soldiers, our American soldiers, Israeli soldiers. I think media should be abolished from, you know, reporting. You know, war is hell, and if you're going to sit there and say, "Well, look at this atrocity," well, you don't know the full story behind it half the time. So I think the media should have no business in it.
Comment is hardly needed...
Roche speaks, from V.S. Naipaul's "Guerillas"
"When I eat food and enjoy it, I wonder why I am allowed to do so. When I lie down in my bed at night and make myself comfortable, I wonder why I am allowed to do so. It would be so easy to take it away from me. Every night I think about that. It would be so easy to torment me. Once you tie a man's hands you can do anything to him."
What am I angry about today?
- This flaming turd - How can anyone be involved in such a piece of DRECK and maintain their self respect?
- The FUCKING White Anglo Ratfuck IMMIGRATION SYSTEM in all its ramified, arbitrary, racist, discriminatory glory
- The MONKEY - the FUCKING MONKEY - do I *ever* have to see his moronic face again? Put him in Pound-Ass Prison and drop the key into the ocean. Better yet. Put him and Cheney and their attorneys in a basketball stadium with every surviving Guantanamo detainee and cheer the spectacle on.
The price of Bush-Cheney will be paid, and justice demands that it falls due to the centrists, rightists, and war apologists.
John Cusack pretty much nails it.

Things that might kill you (and me)
A: How could you feel uncomfortable with citizens carrying concealed weapons? What if you were a petite young woman like me, who sometimes feels uncomfortable on the streets at night? A handgun makes me feel safer.
B: Is it not better to live in a society where you can feel safe on the streets at night, unarmed?
A: What I don't like about your beloved capitalist system is that to win big, you have to be dishonest.
B: There's no such thing as dishonesty in the free market. It is the perfect reward mechanism; it promotes enterprise, productivity, efficiency, and fitness to demand; while penalising laziness, mistakes, and failure to deliver what people want. The invisible hand is infallibly leading us to a perfect outcome.
A: Whether the system is perfect or not, whether one admits the possibility of a "free" uncorrupted market or not, isn't it self evident that whatever system we have rewards most those who are adapted to thrive within it? - Not those, for instance, whose motives may be social good?
B: The market rewards those who deserve to be rewarded. Survival of the fittest. Culling of the weak. Any other policy would be worse.
