Western Digital ‘MyCloud’ Is Down 5 Days and Counting

Cloud

Nemo the Magnificent (2786867) writes “A friend of mine bought a Western Digital ‘MyCloud’ NAS server (non-RAID) a couple of weeks ago. WD implements the cloud service through its wd2go.com site. He reports that that site is down and has been since last Wednesday. No word on when it’ll be back up. The only official announcements are daily repeats of this canned posting: ‘Our My Cloud and My Book Live users are experiencing intermittent issues with WD servers that enable remote access when using these products. These issues include poor transfer speeds and/or inability to connect remotely. We sincerely apologize for this inconvenience and we are working very hard to resolve these issues and resume normal service as soon as possible. We thank you for your patience and will provide updates as they are available.’”

Study finds that when no financial interests are involved programmers choose DECENT languages

March 31st, 2014 03:01 admin View Comments

For immediate release. By studying the troves of open source software on the github service, a recent (and still unpublished) study by a team of empirical computer scientists found that programmers prefer to use DECENT languages. DECENT languages were defined by the team to be languages that conform to a set of minimal ethical standards, including clean syntax, expressive type systems, good package managers and installers, free implementations, no connection to the military-industrial complex and not harming animals. The researchers argue that this breakdown of language use supports the view that the prevalent use of indecent languages, Java in particular, is the result of money influencing programmer decisions. The principal author of the study notess that DECENT languages do not necessarily make the most MORAL choice (e.g., many of them are not statically type). He attributed this to a phenomenon called the “weakness of the will.”

Details to follow.
