    SonicSpike quotes an article at Reason: In a decisive rout for pragmatism over purity, the Libertarian Party has nominated former New Mexico Republican Governor and 2012 nominee Gary Johnson for president. Johnson came within an eyelash of winning on the first ballot, pulling 49.5 percent of the vote, just short of the required majority. (Libertarian activist Austin Petersen and software magnate John McAfee came in second and third, respectively, with 21.3 percent and 14.1 percent.) With sixth-place finisher Kevin McCormick (and his 0.973 percent of the vote) booted from the second ballot, Johnson sailed through with 55.8 percent. John Mcafee answered questions here on Slashdot in 2013. Reason's article includes a video of their interview this weekend with the party's official nominee Gary Johnson, who hopes to qualify for the nationally-televised presidential debates by drawing 15% of the support in national opinion polls. ...

    An anonymous reader quotes an article from the Washington Post: Jane Fawcett, a British code-breaker during World War II who deciphered a key German message that led to the sinking of the battleship Bismarck -- one of Britain's greatest naval victories during the war -- died May 21 at her home in Oxford, England. She was 95... Fluent in German and driven by curiosity, Mrs. Fawcett -- then known by her maiden name, Jane Hughes -- found work at Britain's top-secret code-breaking facility at Bletchley Park, about 50 miles northwest of London. Of the 12,000 people who worked there, about 8,000 were women. Bletchley Park later became renowned as the place where mathematician Alan Turing and others solved the puzzle of the German military's "Enigma machine," depicted in the 2014 film "The Imitation Game"... The sinking of the Bismarck marked the first time that British code-breakers had decrypted a message that led directly to a victory in battle... Mrs. Fawcett's work was not made public ...

    sproketboy shares this article about a computer graphic designer who spent two years building a real-world version of the classic videogame Pong, played on a full-sized coffee table using only mechanical parts. The project's team apparently used a hard drive platter for the real-world scroll wheels controlling the paddles, aided by some large Arduinos and other homemade electronics (along with rainbow LED lights to create the pixels for the score). "We don't have any electronics, product design, or manufacturing background," Daniel Perdomo told one technology site. "All we knew for this was thanks to the Internet (Google, YouTube, forums). Today you can grab all the knowledge you want just a few clicks away!" He's now looking for a hardware incubator to transform his "Atari Pong Project" into a real consumer product. (Interestingly, another group of hobbyists built a similar electromechanical version of Pong back In 2004.) ...

    Three cryptocurrency experts published a scientific paper Friday detailing seven attacks that could influence how the Decentralized Autonomous Organization (DAO) allocates its Ether funds. An anonymous Slashdot reader writes, "Coincidentally or not, they released their work with one day before funding for the DAO closed, and not surprisingly, Ether's price went down, devaluing the DAO from $150 million to $132 million." From Softpedia: DAO is a crowdfunded project that works on the Ethereum network, a new crypto-currency network that deals with crypto-currency named Ether, which many experts say is better than Bitcoin's blockchain... Investors can submit funding proposals, on which the DAO users vote by submitting some of their tokens and a YES/NO vote. In the end, based on the tokens and YES/NO votes, the DAO's computer program decides on the outcome. Softpedia reports that the paper released Friday also suggests a series of mitigations to a design they say will "incentivize investo...

    Google's search engine for academic research materials is blocking many users with a malfunctioning captcha screen, according to complaints on a Google help forum. "I'm a doctoral student and a professor, which means I use this extensively. Now I'm blocked from using it at all, even after answering all of the stupid image questions (3 times)," reads a typical complaint.

    Vox is strongly criticizing coverage of a supposed link between cellphones and cancer suggested by a new study, calling it "a breathtaking example of irresponsible science hype." An anonymous reader writes: A professor and research monitoring administrator at an American medical school reported that to get their results, the researchers "exposed pregnant rats to whole body CDMA- and GSM-modulated radiofrequency radiation, for 9 hours a day, 7 days a week," and the results were seen only with CDMA (but not GSM-modulated) radiofrequency. "[F]alse positives are very likely. The cancer difference was only seen in females, not males. The incidence of brain cancer in the exposed groups was well within the historical range. There's no clear dose response..." An emeritus professor of applied statistics at the Open University in Britain also called the study "statistically underpowered..." according to Vox. "Not enough animals were used to allow the researchers to have a good chance of detecti...

    Some Windows users are now disabling critical updates on their systems rather than face the prospect of mistakenly upgrading to Windows 10. An anonymous reader writes: "By pushing it on users in such a heavy-handed way, Microsoft is encouraging users who have very valid reasons to stick with Windows 7/8 to perform actions that leave their machines open to attack," writes PC World's senior editor. He adds that "Over the past week, I've received more contact from readers about this issue than I have about everything else I've written over the rest of my career combined." Now even China's official news agency is reporting that users are angry about stealthy Windows 10 upgrades, saying over 1.2 million complaints appeared on one microblogging site. It quotes a legal advisor with the Internet Society of China, who says Microsoft "has abused its dominant market position and broken the market order for fair play," saying that lawsuits would be justified over Microsoft's action.

    Taco Cowboy writes: It may be brilliant, but it's not all that trustworthy. That appears to be the opinion Americans hold when it comes to Artificial Intelligence systems... And while we may be interacting with AI systems more frequently than we realize (hi, Siri), a new study from Time etc suggests that Americans don't believe the AI revolution is quite here yet, with 54 percent claiming to have never interacted with such a system The more interesting finding reveals that 26 percent of respondents said they would not trust an AI with any personal or professional task. Sure, sending a text message or making a phone call is fine, but 51 percent said they'd be uncomfortable sharing personal data with an AI system. Moreover, 23 percent of Americans who say they have interacted with an AI reported being dissatisfied with the experience.

    "Get ready for some big changes in the 'silicon' of Silicon Valley," writes tech CEO Narbeh Derhacobian who argues that the need to build tens of billions of connected sensor devices will change the way computers get built. "Just like smartphone owners like to pick and choose which apps they want, IoT manufacturers may want to shop for components individually without being locked into a single fab." An anonymous reader summarizes his article on TechCrunch: Thousands of different hardware devices, each selling around one million units, "would suggest the need for a much greater diversity of chip configurations than we've seen to date." Currently smartphones are engineered using a "System on a Chip" design where all the components are "locked into a single manufacturing process," but Derhacobian predicts chip manufacturers will continue a trend of moving towards a "System in a Package" approach -- "packing components closely together, without the complete, end-to-end integration...

    RALEIGH, NC—In what many political observers are calling a new low in an election season that has already seen its share of negative campaigning, a scathing anti–Ted Cruz attack ad airing this week reportedly shows nothing more than a still photograph of the Texas senator’s face for 30 seconds, unaccompanied by any text, voiceover, or music.The pointed TV spot—which continues on in complete silence and does not pan across or zoom in on the candidate’s face, but merely holds steady on the image for half a minute before fading to black—is said to be running in several states with upcoming primaries and is paid for by a super PAC opposed to Cruz’s presidential bid.“This is an extremely vicious jab at Ted Cruz, and one that succeeds in painting the candidate in a most unfavorable light,” said Douglas Reisenthaler, a senior analyst ......

    Sega has announced plans to close down Sonic Runners, the first mobile game from Sonic Team. The company ceased sales of the game's premium currency, Red Star Rings, yesterday, and will close down the rest of the game on July 27 at 9am UTC. Since players will not be able to redeem or use Red Star Rings after that date, Sega suggests using them before then. "We would like express out most sincere thanks to all our users for their patronage and support," Sega said in a statement. "The Sonic Runners team hopes that you enjoyed the journey as much as we did." The free-to-play endless runner originally debuted in Japan and Canada on February 25, 2015 before launching worldwide that June. In order to be abandoned just over a year after launch, it seems as though the project must have been a significant disappointment for the brass at Sega. ...

    FGE - A high-definition digital restoration of Square Enixs Final Fantasy X was recently released on Steam. FFX was the first Final Fantasy game released on the PlayStation 2, back in 2001, and I remember being totally blown away. Playing through this classic from my childhood in glorious HD brought back all of those intense feelings of awe and wonder I felt the first time I played this game, and I was reminded of just what an impact the mystical world of Spira had on my younger self. Being overcome with nostalgia was predictable, but nostalgia has a funny way of masking the imperfections of things you once loved unconditionally. This isnt the case with FFX. This game is just as much fun playing through in 2016 as it was over a decade and a half ago, and it has most certainly stood the test of time. FFXs story is one of the best in the Final Fantasy series, a compelling tale of brave heroes facing off against religious fanaticism and corruption....

    Some people see nothing special in re-sharing a funny internet video...others know the meaning of true heroism.
    If you've ever seen 'Dead Poet's Society' then the following scene should be familiar: An oppressive close-minded instructor forcing his outdated views on his students, despite their wishes. In the movie, Robin Williams' character was hired to teach and tried to create change, until his methods got him fired. In a show of solidarity & support, his students delivered the well-known 'O Captain! My Captain!' speech. Well, this SNL parody, 'Farewell Mr. Bunting' seemed to be taking an identical tone; Mr. Bunting had just stopped by to pick up his stuff after an apparent firing. But what happens next is best viewed for yourself.

    Exercising can be tough - it's difficult to motivate yourself into giving up precious free-time to exhausting yourself further, it's expensive (and inconvenient) to join a gym, and - in the end - exercising just isn't all that exciting. I mean, most people would rather just be sitting at home, having sex or watching porn (or some combination of both, no judgment here). But what if you could COMBINE what you WANT to be doing (wink wink) with actual quantifiable exercise? Welcome to PornHub's newest initiative, BangFit.

    I’ve been working on a series of articles showing how to build microservices using an event-driven approach (which IMHO is the only real way to build microservices :) or… any complex distributed architecture). I’ll explore DDD, CQRS, Event-sourcing, event streaming, complex-event processing and more. I’m using a reference monolith application based on Java EE that uses all the typical Java EE technology and dives deep into what makes it tick, what drawbacks it has, and how to evolve it to a microservices architecture. I’ll show implementation details all the way from containers (Docker, Kubernetes) to the ...

    A user recently made us aware of the Skynet benchmark, a microbenchmark for “extreme” multithreading (1M threads). We are generally wary of such microbenchmarks because they are often tailored to measure a specific strength of a particular platform, without taking into account how relevant that strength is for real applications. For example, a platform with a 1000x faster implementation of sqrt would be hard pressed to yield even a 0.01% improvement in performance when running real applications. With threads the situation is a bit different: when many threads are active (say, over 10K) processing transactions in short bursts, the kernel thread scheduling overhead might become onerous and your application may then spend a significant portion of its time waiting for the kernel to schedule your code. Lightweight thread (AKA fibers) implementations, like those provided by ...

    I've been doing some work the last couple of weeks with Angular 2. I really like it. Not just because it uses TypeScript, but also because it feels really natural and straightforward while working with it. No more string-based dependency injection, or strange digest cycle stuff—it just seems to work. This last week I've migrated our beta-13 Angular app to the latest rc-1, and used that to keep track of the fun and easy stuff Angular 2 provides. Note though that the application we're developing isn't really that complex, so I can only assume we'll run into more complex Angular 2 features in the near future. For now though, let me share some general tips and tricks we've encountered thus far (in no particular order). Oh, all examples are in TypeScript, since after using that, I really don't want to go back to plain old JavaScript (POJS?).1.

    Architecture and system design is involving rapidity in the last years. We are talking about REST Services, microservices architectures, and reactive programming. The last one is sometimes a kind of a mystery because it often sounds like it is the holy grail in modern software design. A good overview about this programming paradigm and its difference to other concepts can be read in David Bushmans article.Reactive programming is an important architecture style but it can bring also a lot of new complexity in your application design. Let's explain me this in an example:...

    Once we have utilized a Java Component in Anypoint Studio, the next challenge is: How do we test it?For testing purposes, we can use MUnit. MUnit is a Mule application testing framework which allows us to easily build automated tests. With MUnit, we can create Mule tests by writing common Java code, slightly similar to Junit. Naturally, it is more comfortable for Java developers.To practice this, we can use any Java class in any Anypoint project.

    After my third year as a Harvard computer science major, I decided to defer my degree to start working as a full-time software engineer at Threat Stack, a Boston-based company providing cloud security and compliance. It was a hard decision, but definitely the right one. As a computer science major, it seemed like the majority of my time was spent studying theories instead of writing my own code or solving real problems. Even after summer internships at well-established companies like Microsoft and Qualcomm, I still didn’t feel like I had the hands-on experience I needed to go out and have an impact in the real world. So I decided to fast track to the real world to get it.I knew the drawbacks of deferring a year to work full-time; falling out of study routines, late graduation and — this hurt the most — missing out on winter, spring, and summer breaks. But I also saw some exceptional advantages. After interning at ...

    An Appery.io developer posted a question on the Appery.io Facebook page on how to write a Server Code script to query two different collections in the database. This post will show you how to do that.In general, querying two database collections is better to do on the server-side than from the client. Doing it on the server is a lot faster and provides you with the option to update the search without impacting the client. Plus, you can add any logic when needed. Doing it from the client would require two REST API calls to the database....

    In February 2015, Radio Shack–an icon in American malls and towns–filed for bankruptcy. You could say a lot of critical things about Radio Shack, but in many parts of the country, it was the only place you were going to go find electronic components on short notice. A lot of people of a certain age got their exposure to electronics via Radio Shack kits and parts. Radio Shack did close a lot of stores. In fact, from 4,000 stores they are down to about 1,700. A New York hedge fund named Standard General bought all the Radio Shack assets and …read more...

    The term ‘Internet of Things’ was coined in 1999, long before every laptop had WiFi and every Starbucks provided Internet for the latte-sucking masses. Over time, the Internet of Things meant all these devices would connect over WiFi. Why, no one has any idea. WiFi is terrible for a network of Things – it requires too much power, the range isn’t great, it’s beyond overkill, and there’s already too many machines and routers on WiFi networks, anyway. There have been a number of solutions to this problem of a WiFi of Things over the years, but none have caught on. …read more...

    How do you get eyeballs on a blog post? Put Raspberry Pi Zero in the headline. How do you get even more eyeballs? Put the word drone in there too. Lucky for us, there’s one very special project in the Hackaday Prize that combines both. It’s the Pi0drone from [Victor], and it’s exactly what it looks like: a flying Raspberry Pi Zero. [Victor] has been working on the PXFmini, a ‘shield’ or ‘hat’ for the Raspberry Pi that integrates a barometer, IMU, and a few PWM outputs into a very small form factor that is just a shade larger than …read more...

    [This Old Tony] teaches us how to make springs on a lathein this video done in the style of How It’s Made. Mixed in with snark, in his usual style, is a lot of useful information. The Machinery’s Handbook certainly has all the information one would need to design the basic spring shapes, but it’s not always necessary. [Tony] points out that cheating is entirely acceptable. For example, if you need a spring that’s close to the dimensions of a standard spring, simply copy over the values from the standard spring. He explains all the terminology needed to decrypt the …read more...

It’s a fact of nature that every computer-minded person will eventually hear that COBOL developers make bank, and you’ll have job security for the rest of your life. Now look at the Hello World for COBOL. Yes, there’s a reason COBOL devs make bank, and they’re still vastly underpaid. [Folkert] figured a way around this problem: he built a …read more...

    [Opificio Sonico] has been at the Lego-based robot music making business for a while now, and it shows. He’s released four videos on YouTube (all inlined below) and each shows a definite evolution of his style and the Lego ‘bots technical range. Episode 4, a cover of Daft Punk’s “Alive”, is clearly the most polished. A sliding platform goes enables a Lego “Toa Mata” figure to play the melody on some kind of iDevice (?). The ‘bot playing the DS to hit its one note repeatedly with the stylus, and has an easier job thanks to Daft Punk’s compositional “efficiency”. …read more...

    If you are of a certain age you may have worked in an office in the days before the computer revolution, and the chances are that in the corner of your office there would have been a teletype machine. Like a very chunky typewriter with a phone attached, this was an electromechanical serial terminal and modem, and machines like it would have formed the backbone of international commerce in the days before fax, and then email. Teletypes may have disappeared from the world of trade, but there are a surprising number still in private hands. Enthusiasts collect and restore them, …read more...
