How SUSE Is Replacing Red Hat as the Linux and Open Source Enterprise Standard-Bearer
  • Maybe just not for corporate enterprise that wants phone and tech support? unless Debian has an Enterprise vendor? The PLM systems and other enterprise level software are certified on SUSE and RHEL, personally I haven't seen Debian listed anywhere.

  • When people say two things "cannot be compared", they had to compare them to come to this conclusion. Are 'dissimilar' or 'unequal' better words?
  • I see it as more like : these thinga are too dissimilar to be compared meaningfully. Like if some article says which is the best tool? And they give you a rake, a network router, and a nailgun. Then you meed context. You can make a matrix of differences and similarities but depends what you are trying to compare. Comparing could be: All are durable, All save time on tasks, All can break with misuse.
    But can also be nailgun and router is bad for raking leaves.

  • What's something that seems obvious within your profession, but the general public seems to misunderstand?
  • Yeah, sometimes we can't remote in due to IT policy or ITAR data. And I was just being dramatic with the comment, it just boggles my mind that they will just keep calling back without even trying to help themselves. Even scheduling a call..."I don't have time for a call I just want it fixed" LOL

  • What's something that seems obvious within your profession, but the general public seems to misunderstand?
  • Yep, so many clients: I have this problem and an error pops up, I need immediate help.

    Me: Ok send me the data and the error log, and a description of what it is telling you on screen.

    Client: I forget what it said, i didn't save the log, And i needed to keep working so I deleted the file and started again.


    Client: My set of files is doing this, and giving me this specific error.

    Me: Ah OK, that is a known issue, close all the fikes and open the top level only, open each sub fike one by one till the error pops up, that will be the culprit so run this clean up tool on that file only.


    Week later, Client : Im having that same error again, can you help?

    Me: That cleanup tool should have fixed it.

    Client: I didn't have time to do those steps so I just kept working as is.

    me: hopefully a gangster shoots me in a drive by crossfire on the way home.

  • 5 years of experience, yet still not clue what "Underfull \hbox" means
  • For the image one there is an option to control if the image is immediate, or when if finds space to insert. Trouble is I have to look these up all the what starts as an attempt at creating a cleanly formatted document often takes more time than messing around with a shitty editor like Word

  • 5 years of experience, yet still not clue what "Underfull \hbox" means
  • Your editor shoul show you \title as another colour

    And subtitle would be \large after title line

    It is all formatting rules. But eliminates formatting the body text.

    At least you know output will be same, not like MS Word

  • a cool guide to diets
  • You could have medical anomolies that slow metabolism, so that weight loss is extremely difficult, but even then a reduction in caloric intake will cause weight loss. But somebody surviving on 2000 a day dropping 200 calories out is easy, compared to somebody sustaining on an 800 calorie diet and trying to cut 200 out.

    There are some meds like olanzipine? that tweak your metabolism and it uses calories more efficiently, therby causing weight gain on same caloric intake, so the remedy on that med is eat less calories

  • a cool guide to diets
  • The thing with keto is when overweight people start they are overeating, and so dropping carbs puts them into calorie deficit for sustaining the bodily functions. Then forcing the body to have no quick fuel availble starts ketosis.

    But over eating on keto can keep you from losing weight. Look to the traditional diet Inuit First nation that survived in the tundra on meats and fats. They weren't in ketosis

  • a cool guide to diets
  • Fat can also trigger parts of your system to stop craving it, so you stop trying to aquire it by overeating. There are some science articles about it.

    Staving off constant hunger can be as easy as cooking up a lentil (daal) soup that has some oil/butter in it. The lentils make you get a very full satisfied feeling in the bowel and the fats hit the part that wants fats.
