Why does the XML namespace here http://storage.googleapis.com/tensorflow/ refer to amazonaws ? :)

The content of that file is XML compatible with AWS's storage APsI. I guess Google cloud storage is capable of presenting that API (maybe that's the defacto standard and there is no other in use). Without the a top-level xmlns=, the tags are not fully qualified.

The early history of Ireland has long been shrouded in mystery. But a new study of the DNA of the ancient Irish has cast some light into the darkness. The first headline is that Ireland's first farmers originated in the Middle East. The second headline is that all those stone rings and tombs that we associate with Ireland appear to have nothing to do with the Celts.

Sometimes I feel like a leprechaun that has reached the end of his rainbow to find a modern optics textbook.

It's strange, I though of int execl(const char *path, const char *arg0, ...); - I think I must be a bad person.

You probably didn't consider when you awoke this morning that today is our first in a post-The Force Awakens world. I suspect that if you're here, reading this now, you know that hundreds of humans...

The problem with working in fintech are all the users who complain about the extreme edge case security issues. Those that are only applicable in a lab or by a nefarious state actor/APT.

But they never seem to complain about those basic blazing holes of security where the real fkups are :D

I had to Google "fintech". For others:
Financial technology, also known as FinTech, is a line of business based on using software to provide financial services. Financial technology companies are generally startups founded with the purpose of disrupting incumbent financial systems and corporations that rely less on software.

Very simple yet very powerful monitoring of non 'pingable' services. Instead of worrying where to put your healthcheck, just create a reliable heartbeat checker.

Daily backups do not complete. Scheduled database replication fails. Applications cannot access to the internet due to a firewall config change. Monitoring tools cannot send alert notifications. Scheduled reports cannot be generated and delivered. A cron job hangs.
