MS Excel’s Science SNAFUs — Bug or User Error?
The problem is #Excel being “clever”—guessing the type of data it’s being asked to import. Unfortunately, some gene names look like dates. And other common data looks like floating-point numbers.

But so what? You don’t do genetics research, but what can we learn? In today’s IT Newspro, we look at the implication for IT pros—and it’s not good.

#ITNP +Petri IT Knowledgebase​
Microsoft Excel causes problems in genetic research. That’s the claim of three researchers from an Australian institute, who discovered almost 20% of data sets contained errors introduced by Excel. The problem is Excel being “clever”—guessing the type of data it’s being asked to import. Unfortunately...

Excel was totally the wrong tool. R or anything else might have avoided this. Whats frightening is that this was a UI problem but so many others aren't. float rounds, DIV0 outcomes..

#Microsoft #Windows10 vs. #EFF Privacy Voice - Fight!
Despite acknowledging previous press stories were wildly incorrect, EFF paralegal staffer +Amul Kalia argues his case with sincere passion. He says Microsoft “disregards” privacy, and that the company isn’t transparent about data collection. He even goes as far as to predict Microsoft might face “government investigations” over the issue.

#ITNP +Petri IT Knowledgebase

Microsoft Windows 10 comes under fire for privacy. The Electronic Frontier Foundation last week reopened the case against Redmond’s telemetry and personalization efforts. Despite acknowledging previous press stories were wildly incorrect, EFF paralegal staffer Amul Kalia argues his case with sincere passion. He says Microsoft “disregards” privacy, and that the company isn’t transparent about data collection. He even goes as far as to predict Micr...

#Microsoft Open-Sources #PowerShell , on #Linux—World Turned Upside-Down
It’s never going to replace Bash, Perl or Python. But for Microsoft-centric dev/ops types, it promises to be a wonderful widget in the toolbag. Especially as more workloads move to “the cloud.”
Happy Friday, everyone. And hold on tight. In today’s #ITNP , we predict dogs and cats living together…

+Petri IT Knowledgebase https://www.petri.com/microsoft-powershell-linux-richij-1675002
Microsoft PowerShell on Linux and macOS—yes, it’s now open source. If you think the world’s gone mad, you might be right. For die-hard Linux-heads, it’s never going to replace Bash, Perl or Python. But for Microsoft-centric dev/ops types, it promises to be a wonderful widget in the toolbag. Especially as more workloads move to “the cloud.”

The +Hybrid Air Vehicles Airlander 10 didn't so much "crash" as "bounce."

I just signed a petition:

“Establish commission to limit the mandate of the Bank of England…”

/cc my MP: +Ranil Jayawardena MP/+Ranil Jayawardena MP
Quantitative Easing (QE) attempts to create economic growth by unconventional, unproven methods. QE has been accompanied by unprecedentedly lower interest rates on savings accounts and Government bonds.These low interest rates threaten the real wealth of British savers, investors and pensioners.

Security is run by jobsworths who spend too much time fiddling the performance statistics. Flight connections is a disorganized mess. Yet BA will sell you a ticket with a 60 minute connection time. Be prepared to RUN! BA lounges aren't all that. Even the First/Concorde room is extremely variable quality.

Quieter than the main BA lounges in the A building. Food is the same slop, though.
