Today is a good day. I just had a call from a telemarketer. Did I yell and scream at them, you ask? Certainly not. Like a good IT administrator I put my skills to use for their benefit. Here's how the conversation went:

Computer: "Press 9 to not be contacted in the future. Press 4 to speak to someone about your mortgage issues"
<presses 4>
TM: "Hello, are you having problems paying your mortgage?"
Me: "Hi, this is the IT department. We intercepted your call as we detected a problem with you phone and need to fix it."
TM: "Oh... ok, well what do we need to do?"
Me: "We're going to need to fix the settings by pressing 4-6-8 and * at the same time"
TM: "Ok, nothing happened."
<alright, so he's not using a Polycom>
Me: "Are you using the new Polycom phones that we deployed?"
TM: "No, it's a Yealink"
Me: "Ok, I see. You haven't had the new Polycom phone deployed to your desk yet. Let me check our technical documentations for the Yealink."
<did a quick Google search, "yealink phone factory reset">
Me: "Alright, do you see an "OK" button on your phone?"
TM: "Yes I do"
Me: "Alright, you're going to press and hold that button for 10 seconds."
TM: "OK, pressing it now"
Me: "Perfect, let me know if you get a password request"
TM: "OK, nothing has popped up ye----"
<click>

That's right. I made a telemarketer unwittingly factory reset his phone which means he will be unable to make anymore calls until someone is able to reconfigure his phone and that will take at least an hour or longer if they can't do it right away!

"Einfach mal bei der VG Media anfragen"  #LSR
Mich würde ja mal interessieren, ob die Verlage nach Übertragung ihrer Rechte an die VG Media noch die Möglichkeit haben, nur Google mit einer un­ent­gelt­lichen Lizenz zu versehen. Muss die VG Media diesen Tarif dann nicht auch allen anderen Interessierten anbieten? Das Argument, der Tarif sei nicht unentgeldlich, da sie einen Gegenwert in Besuchern erhalten, wird wohl kaum genannt werden. Damit entsprächen die Benutzer den 11% die von der VG Media gefordert werden.

Nice introduction to the newly open sourced connector. It's a lot easier to use than the spark mongodb connector, I had to use for a recent project. There is no dependency on a certain hadoop version (Y) Although it its supported don't try to use Java and learn Scala: It's worth it. It has some deficiencies but uses far less resources, allows to use all features of Spark and is more explicit. If you need to have long running, repeated jobs have a look at https://github.com/spark-jobserver/spark-jobserver It could be easier to set up but solves problems ;-)

If you are a software developer, you should watch this from beginning to end.

If you are not a software developer, you should watch the first few minutes and the last five minutes. (Or watch it all if you want the full experience :)

I stumbled on this while doing some reading on ideas of current interest to me and I am so glad I did. I just kept finding myself thinking "Yes! This!" I believe I mentioned publicly somewhere recently that I had been reading an essay written in 1992 about the history of Smalltalk by one of its inventors; the number of tie-ins and call-backs between this presentation and that essay was pretty astounding. The message is there if we wish to hear it.

Was wäre denn, wenn alle Verlage die dem LSR unterliegen nur noch für zahlende Google -Nutzer sichbar wären? Google müsste dafür nur ein Premium-Modell einführen...
 ·  Translate
Deutsche Verleger wollen Google zwingen, ihre Texte zu verlinken und dafür auch noch zu zahlen. Ihre absurde Kartellbeschwerde ist rechtlich aber wohl unhaltbar.
