    An anonymous reader quotes Space.com: After orbiting Saturn for more than 13 years, NASA's Cassini spacecraft is getting ready to say goodbye. On Monday (August 14), Cassini made the first of five passes through Saturn's upper atmosphere, kicking off the last phase of the mission's "Grand Finale." After completing those five dives, Cassini will come back around again one last time, plunging into Saturn's atmosphere on September 15. This will be a suicide maneuver: Cassini will burn up in the ringed planet's thick air, turning into a meteor in the Saturn sky... Cassini's radar will be able to look into the atmosphere and see features as small as 16 miles (25 km) wide, about 100 times smaller than what it could see from its usual orbital positions. The Grand Finale will include one final swing by Saturn's largest moon, Titan, on Sept. 11. Titan's gravity will slow Cassini's orbit around Saturn and bend its path to send the spacecraft toward its September 15 encounter with the planet......

    An anonymous reader quotes Liliputing: Buy an iPhone and you might get 4-5 years of official software updates. Android phones typically get 1-3 years of updates... if they get any updates at all. But there are ways to breathe new life into some older Android phones. If you can unlock the bootloader, you may be able to install a custom ROM like LineageOS and get unofficial software updates for a few more years. The folks behind postmarketOS want to go even further: they're developing a Linux-based alternative to Android with the goal of providing up to 10 years of support for old smartphones... Right now postmarketOS is a touch-friendly operating system based on Alpine Linux that runs on a handful of devices including the Samsung Galaxy Nexus, Google Nexus 4, 5, and 7 (2012), and several other Samsung, HTC, LG, Motorola, and Sony smartphones. There are also ports for some non-Android phones such as the Nokia N900 and work-in-progress builds for the BlackBerry Bolt Touch 9900 and Jolla ...

    Winamp was released more than 20 years ago, and last week marked the 15th anniversary of the release of Winamp3. An anonymous Slashdot reader tries to explain what finally happened to Winamp: AOL planned to discontinue Winamp in November of 2013, but instead sold it to the Belgian online radio service Radionomy. The last update on Winamp's Twitter account was September of 2015, though it announced that they were looking for a new senior C++ developer. Then in December of 2015 Vivendi Group became that company's majority shareholder, stirring hopes that the company might one day launch a revamped version of the classic mp3 player from 1997. So did they? Radionomy's Winamp page is still showing download links -- though they now lead instead to a forum post which says "code licensed to the previous owner" is being removed or replaced. But that post has been updated five times -- as recently as last October -- with "info about the next Winamp release," each linking to a thread on Winamp...

    For years Maine has been offering laptops to high school students -- but is it doing more harm than good? An anonymous reader writes: One high school student says "We hardly ever use paper," while another student "says he couldn't imagine social studies class without his laptop and Internet connection. 'I don't think I could do it, honestly... I don't want to look at a newspaper. I don't even know where to get a newspaper!'" But then the reporter visits a political science teacher who "learned what a lot of teachers, researchers and policymakers in Maine have come to realize over the past 15 years: You can't just put a computer in a kid's hand and expect it to change learning." "Research has shown that 'one-to-one' programs, meaning one student one computer, implemented the right way, increase student learning in subjects like writing, math and science. Those results have prompted other states, like Utah and Nevada, to look at implementing their own one-to-one programs in recent year...

    An anonymous reader quotes CyberScoop: The FBI has been briefing private sector companies on intelligence claiming to show that the Moscow-based cybersecurity company Kaspersky Lab is an unacceptable threat to national security, current and former senior U.S. officials familiar with the matter tell CyberScoop... The FBI's goal is to have U.S. firms push Kaspersky out of their systems as soon as possible or refrain from using them in new products or other efforts, the current and former officials say.

    In April Chrome began marking HTTP pages as "not secure" in its address bar if the pages had password or credit card fields. They're about to take the next step. An anonymous reader quotes SearchEngineLand: Last night, Google sent email notifications via Google Search Console to site owners that have forms on web pages over HTTP... Google said, "Beginning in October 2017, Chrome will show the 'Not secure' warning in two additional situations: when users enter data on an HTTP page, and on all HTTP pages visited in Incognito mode." Google warned in April that "Our plan to label HTTP sites as non-secure is taking place in gradual steps, based on increasingly broad criteria. Since the change in Chrome 56, there has been a 23% reduction in the fraction of navigations to HTTP pages with password or credit card forms on desktop, and we're ready to take the next steps..."

    theodp writes: The Official Microsoft Blog hopes a letter from a Nevada middle schooler advising Microsoft President Brad Smith to "keep up the good work running that company" will "inspire you like it did us." Penned as part of a math teacher's assignment to write letters to the businesses that they like, Microsoft says the letter prompted Smith to visit the Nevada school to meet 7th-grader Sky Yi in person as part of the company's effort to draw attention to the importance of math and encourage students and teachers who are passionate about STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) education. In an accompanying video of the surprise meeting, Smith presents Yi with a new Surface Laptop that comes with Windows 10 S, a version of the OS that has been streamlined with schools in mind. "Not bad for a little letter," the Microsoft exec says. Speaking of Microsoft, Nevada, and education, Bing Maps coincidentally shows the school Smith visited is just a 43-minute drive from the softwa...

    An anonymous reader quotes the US Naval Institute News: Seventy-two years after two torpedoes fired from a Japanese submarine sunk cruiser USS Indianapolis (CA-35), the ship's wreckage was found resting on the seafloor on Saturday -- more than 18,000 feet below the Pacific Ocean's surface. Paul Allen, Microsoft co-founder and billionaire philanthropist, led a search team, assisted by historians from the Naval History and Heritage Command in Washington, D.C., to accomplish what past searches had failed to do -- find Indianapolis, considered the last great naval tragedy of World War II. "To be able to honor the brave men of the USS Indianapolis and their families through the discovery of a ship that played such a significant role in ending World War II is truly humbling," said Allen in a statement provided to US Naval Institute News on Saturday... "I hope everyone connected to this historic ship will feel some measure of closure at this discovery so long in coming"... Allen's 13-person...

    Tycho: I love Housemarque - Super Stardust HD is one of my favorite games of all time, and defeating it with Kiko is one of my favorite gaming memories.  I thought Resogun was very good also.  Now they’re dropping this Matterfall shit, and it’s bonkers but I love it too. As an adult, I was surprised and delighted to learn that Hair Metal (I’m aware there are more technical terms, subgenres which begat subgenres, etc.) continued to progress elsewhere in the world after it stopped being a going concern here.  That is the ground Housemarque treads: they make arcade…...

    New Comic: The Digital Revolution

    Gabe: My wife Kara planned a vacation to celebrate me turning forty next month. We just got back from eight glorious days in Maui and my sunburn has officially entered the “itchy as fuck” phase. I’m not good at vacationing and eight days is actually the longest I’ve ever allowed myself to take off. I really like my job and the work I do so sometimes it’s difficult to step away from it. I’m very glad I did though as I was starting to get a little burned out and I think the time away really helped. As Cypress Hill so aptly put it 17 years ago, “It’s a fun job, but it’s still a…...

    New Comic: Peep This

    Tycho: I had mentioned on the Twitch thing that I like hobbies that have a lot of custom language, that is to say Jargon; most hobbies are like this, but some are more dense than others.  Someone bellowing from the depths of Twitor, The Truncated Realm, suggested that my hobby is actually learning new words, and the particular genuflections of these hobbies are essentially just the rind. I can’t imagine why I would argue with that. Gaming has tons and tons of words.  It used to have even more, if you were playing during the MS-DOS era, and these terms weren’t flourishes -…...

    New Comic: Sniperclips

    Tycho: Like any subterranean cloister, our people have tooled a lot of custom language to depict our mysteries.  Jargon serves many purposes, as a shibboleth it excels, but it’s also a form of linguistic compression that saves an incredible amount of time. Most people can’t perceive what we’re talking about at all.  The best we can hope for often is a kind of bemused curiosity; many people respond to new information, especially densely coded information, as something between an insult and a chop to the trachea.  Even explaining the fundamental conceptual space of…...

    An advertisement from a German gaming magazine (now archived on Reddit) has spoiled the announcement of a brand new open-world action RPG from THQ Nordic. Called Biomutant, the game features a post apocalyptic setting with anthropomorphic characters utilizing kung-fu. Sounds absolutely bonkers (no pun intended), if you ask me. The game is coming to PS4, Xbox One and PC sometime next year with the leaked ad translating to "beginning 2018." That could mean Q1 or just that the game is releasing, so speculation is all we have. The developer will be Experiment 101, a Swedish studio formed by ex Avalanche members (developers behind Just Cause). ...

    Recently, Nintendo polled Switch users to settle the age-old question, “is a hot dog a sandwich?” It’s no secret where I stand on this issue, but I’m happy to report that 54% of voters made the right choice. That’s right people! A hot dog is a sandwich! The National Hot Dog and Sausage Council (I still can’t believe this is actually a thing…) had previously stated that they were not, but they’ve got a brand to protect. I imagine they probably also don’t want to reprint all their t-shirts, banners, and various other paraphernalia to say, “The National Hot Dog and Sausage Sandwich Council.” An employee for NASA, on the other hand, clearly sided with the majority of Switch v...

    As tweeted by both WayForward Games and Shantae co-creator Matt Bozon, the campaign DLC for 2016's Shantae: Half-Genie Hero, will be setting sail in just 10 days, August 29 to be specific.The new DLC will see players take control of Shantae's arch-rival, the nefarious, self-proclaimed "Queen of the Seven Seas", Risky Boots. In a plotline that runs parallel to the Half-Genie Hero storyline, players will guide Risky through Sequin Land, gathering items to upgrade the Dynamo device that she steals from the protagonists in the game's third act.Aiding Risky in these misdeeds are a host of skills, (returning from previous game Pirate's Curse), including the ability to cannon-bounce and glide. New tricks will include the use of a grappling gun, as well as the ability to command Tinkerbats to battle alongside her. All this potentially l...

    There was a time when the Zero Escape series seemed all but dead. After a stellar but quiet debut on the Nintendo DS, the series saw real success on the 3DS and Vita with Virtue’s Last Reward. That game, like its predecessor, sold well in the West but arguably bombed in Japan. For a long time, fans like me didn’t know if we’d ever see the story continue. Today, it’s nearly impossible to escape the series. The first two entries are fully playable on four different platforms, and yesterday, 2016’s Zero Time Dilemma joined them when it launched for the PlayStation 4.  Read more......

    The third and last entry in Kotaro Uchikoshi's critically acclaimed Zero Escape series has finally released on PS4. It is now available, both physically and on the PlayStation Store, at a retail price of $40.  Zero Time Dilemma follows a cast of nine characters, a mix of returning and new, trapped in a deadly decision game. Their lives and the fate of the entire planet hangs in the balance. Like previous entries, it features a non-linear story with multiple endings and multiple ways for the cast to meet its untimely death... This game definitely deserves its Mature rating, folks!

    I've been playing a lot of Sonic Mania over the past few days. It's nice that I'm enjoying a Sonic game in 2017, and even more delightful that I get to enjoy it on the Nintendo Switch.  Sonic Mania does all the right things. The controls are tight, the art is nostalgic but not pandering, and it reminds me of what I liked about Genesis-era Sonic games. The one rather depressing thing it does for me is point out what other people have been saying for some time: the Nintendo Switch Joy-Con need a proper directional pad. ...

    Three's company, but four's a squad in PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds. At least that's how it typically goes when the D-Team gets together.

Today's run is one of my favorites yet. We invoke the name of Daddy Yankee and summon him as our fourth, spiritual squad mate to overcome the bloodthirsty enemies knocking at our door. Things get pretty hectic during the second half of the video, and tensions run high. Thank goodness we had the foresight to take a break, relax, and snap a few in-game pictures once during one of the final circles.  ...

It tells you if your service is up, down, fast, slow, and functioning as designed. When something inevitably breaks, a monitoring tool can notify you via alerts and help diagnose the problem. An effective monitoring strategy can allow organizations to reap significant benefits including:...

    In the previous post, I talked about the issues we had with wanting to run untrusted code and wanting to use Jurassic to do so. The problem is that when the IL code is generated, it is then JITed and run on the machine directly, we have no control over what it is doing. And that is a pretty scary thing to have. A simple mistake causing an infinite loop is going to take down a thread, which requires us to abort it, which means that we are now in a funny state. I don’t like funny states in production systems. So we were stuck, and then I realized that Jurrasic is actually generating IL for the scripts. If it generates the IL, maybe we can put something in the IL? Indeed we can, here is the relevant PR for Jurrasic code. Here is the...

    RxJava is missing a factory to create an infinite stream of natural numbers. Such a stream is useful, e.g. when you want to assign unique sequence numbers to a possibly infinite stream of events by zipping both of them: Flowable<Long> naturalNumbers = //??? Flowable<Event> someInfiniteEventStream = //... Flowable<Pair<Long, Event>> sequenced = Flowable.zip( naturalNumbers, someInfiniteEventStream, Pair::of ); ...

    In manufacturing, getting to an ROI is pretty cut and dry. What are the cost of the materials, how many products will that yield, and what can we sell it for? Calculating the value of a collaborative culture and a strong peer review practice isn’t quite as intuitive. When bugs slip through the cracks, it isn’t just expensive; it’s a risk to your entire business. The stakes are high, to say the least. Organizations clearly save money if their development teams can identify and fix bugs before they reach the customer’s hands. We can all agree to that, but how much do they save? Do you have to wait for a disaster to get an understanding of the cost of inadequate reviewing? Before getting to an explicit value, let’s first consider the scope....

    Today’s world has recently taken up an increased focus on machine learning — and with data scientists/data miners/predictive modellers/*whatever new job term may emerge* operating at the cutting-edge of technology, it cannot be forgotten that machine learning needs to be implemented in such a way to aid in the solution of real business problems.

By minimizing the number of things you need to learn, the open-source Tablesaw provides a gateway....

    I'm making the python app that needs to make HTTP API calls fast. I use python requests package to make API calls on HTTPS. I noticed that first request always takes much more time than the rest. This is not due to establishing HTTP connection because requests.get() establishes new connection on every call (checked requests with logs). I investigated network with Wireshark and though I found from there that first request takes more time than others, the difference is not such high. Also I noticed that even if I make first call to host1 and all the rest to host2, request to host1 takes much more time than all following request. That insures me that the issue is not connected to establishing some kind of connection with the host. I checked ping command and didn't find such difference between first and other ping-request. Is it something with OS or requests initial set up on fist request or something else?...

It’s an entirely analogue instrument though, so it lacks some of the sophisticated features you might expect to see on its modern counterparts. One feature the HP does have is a vertical deflection output that in effect allows the trace to be reproduced on an oscilloscope. [Seb] has taken that and applied it to an STM32F746 Discovery board with its associated LCD touchscreen to produce an interface for the HP that includes modern features such as trace normalisation and a waterfall view.

Well, if you want to watch the eclipse and you have an auto-darkening welding helmet, you can do what [daniel_reetz] did and hack something together with a remote and your welding helmet to let you see the eclipse without blinding yourself. Essentially, the hack tricks the helmet’s sensors into thinking it’s very bright. [Daniel_reetz] accomplishes this by gluing a remote with an infrared LED to the side of the helmet and covering it with a 50mm plastic lid. There are …read more...
