    mr moose got a reaction from matrix07012 in Starlink dishes go into “thermal shutdown” once they hit 50°C   
    Most surfaces in the sun in Australia (even the lower states) will easily hit 50c.    This seems to be a big problem,

    It does, as I already answered the first time. It shows Microsoft is protecting their Trademark Windows which they are legally required to do.

    Well, that's why I said the point of them is to reduce.

    It would be forcing our ideals on them if these apps were installed by default and somehow needed to be used to be able to use the product. Allowing people to install the apps out of their own free will is not forcing ideals on them.

    i couldn't even get fixed wireless where i am...so yes XD i went from adsl to starlink. though i have had to keep my adsl for working from home since SL is not 100% stable yet. i've only had 2 minutes of downtime in the last 24 hours and i'm pretty sure it's while i was asleep.

    Have you ever measured the temperature of something outside in the sun? Ever? It gets hotter than ambient.

    That's the normal masurement usually taken some distance from the surface. When a place hits 30 C it is far from unheard of surface materials often used in construction to approach 50 C. Just try walking in an older city with a lot of stone and marble construction on a hot day (London and Berlin are great examples). The temperature you feel is much warmer and if you put your hand on say the roof of a building (where this satellite dish would be) you can easily burn it if you hold on too long.

    Tin foil made from aluminium is called aluminium foil.
     
    The reason why aluminium foil cools off so quickly after removing it from heat, is a function of the high surface area to volume ratio and the high conductivity of Aluminium.
     
    Basically, the thinness of the foil results in a low volume, and therefore a relatively low amount of stored energy. That low amount of energy is very quickly dissipated into the environment by the high surface area and high conductivity of the aluminium.

    mr moose reacted to Donut417 in Windows 10 consumer editions to reach End of Life in 2025   
    Up till a few years ago US Nuclear Missile Silos used Floppy disks. Why? Because the technology was proven. The US Navy used Windows XP pasted the EOL date. We the tax payers paid Microsoft boatloads of money so the Navy continued to get updates. Why? Because warships are in service for decades. Their systems are probably not easily upgraded. 
     
    @mr moose came up with a "Shit" example. But an Example I have is the ticket booking system the airlines use. From what I was told the original system was made back in like the 70's. If you start peeling back the layers of the current system, you're going to find the original system under all that. A business is not going to kill off software if it still works. If they can keep it working they will continue to use it forever. 
     
    The only reason Apple gets away with what they did, killing off 32bit support. Well frankly Apple up till maybe a year or so ago didn't give a shit about their computer business. The mobile business is making boatloads of cash. Also Apple doesn't have as many Enterprise users as Microsoft. Thats because Microsoft marketed itself for businesses for like the entire life of the company. Microsoft will continue to cater to businesses. 
     
    Eventually most stuff will move to the cloud and what Microsoft does wont matter as much. But until that happens in a few decades or more. Microsoft will have to continue doing things they way they have been.

    That won’t happen. That’s the point we are making. Microsoft kisses Enterprise users asses. Because they give Microsoft boat loads of cash every year in subscription fees. That’s what you are not understanding. Enterprise users pay pretty much pay forever. That’s how they make money with Windows.

    mr moose got a reaction from Parabola in Windows 10 consumer editions to reach End of Life in 2025   
    I'd just say that in business you don't fix what isn't broken unless you want to risk breaking it.  By that I mean Windows and MS's general business strategy keeps them on the lions share of all computers.  It doesn't seem to matter how good apple is, was or is becoming, they can't seem to catch MS for market share and likely won't while MS maintains support for all the old implementations.    In fact it is such a big market that there are professional devices out there that give modern computers and operating systems legacy interfaces (RS232,  Parallel, etc)  so they can still run old software managed systems/machines.  
     
    Here's a shit example, I have seen more professional tools than this but it gives you an idea why windows is so big/ugly in the coding department, it still supports old ISA hardware through USB.

    Hang on a minute, are you saying you've compiled a list of times Linus said he was going to make a screwdriver, and want him to give you a screwdriver for said effort?  I hope he gives you one, if for no other reason other than effort should be rewarded.

    mr moose reacted to leadeater in Australian Federal Police and FBI create "anonymous" messaging app to catch over 800 criminals in 18 countries   
    The whole platform was fake, so yes. If you were convinced to use these devices and the app by your "peers" (lol) then you were the target of police spear phishing. There might have been some unintended targets but I doubt it since it sounds like it wasn't an app on any apps stores and was pre-loaded on phones specifically intended to be given to individuals under investigation.
     
     
    This is about as unobtrusive and non interfering with the general public as possible since it wasn't breaking encryption, wasn't intercepting general communications and was limited only to specific targets with specific devices using a specific app. The shutting down of actual encrypted messaging apps is a different discussion point however, of course there can be legitimate reason why those were shut down too (no free passes with aiding and abetting criminals online I'm afraid, ignorance is not a defense, particularly purposeful).

    i don't think it would be as bad as it is, if there wasn't big song and dance about the anti-right to repair arguments about how non-authorised third party repair stores having access to personal information will have privacy risks.
