EFI-afløser til 1,1 mia. på vej: Stor del af beløbet skal gå til systemudvikling

Har postet den her før, men desværre vedbliver den med at være skræmmende aktuel. Underholdende og sarkastisk:

This paper boldly challenges the long established misconception that the catastrophic failure of expensive software projects is detrimental to society. Historical analysis of bureaucracies such as the Australian Tax Office shows that massive software automation has not increased their real efficiency since the 1950s. Any increase in the efficiency of individual workers has simply been consumed by increased bureaucratic complexity, as predicted by Parkinson's law. As the primary net effect of software is to facilitate bureaucratic complexity it is therefor essential that software projects fail if society is to function effectively. In this way the heavy burden of guilt can be lifted from the shoulders of the numerous project managers that have subconsciously devoted their careers to ensuring that projects rarely, if ever, succeed.</p>
<p>...</p>
<p>Some may misinterpret this article as satire. Surely it is not really desirable for software projects to fail. But the facts speak for themselves.

Huawei skal opgradere TDC’s kabelnet - lover 1 Gbit/s i 2017

Så mangler vi bare at forbrugerstyrelsen vrider armen om på dem og sørger for at man kan købe internet fra Yousee uden at blive tvunget til at have en TV-Pakke også. Lige nu har de en "TV-Tax" på deres bredbåndsforbindelser til private på min. 180 kr./md.

Nogen der ved om der er en god grund til at den bundling stadig tillades? På xDSL linjer er det vel små 10 år siden at der blev gjort op med bundlingen af bredbånd+fastnet.

Datamining for begyndere

Herhjemme tilbyder DanBib en webservice til søgning i bibliotek.dk, indtil videre gratis. Der kan bl.a. søges på ISBN:http://www.danbib.dk/index.php?doc=webservice_bibdkhttp://webservice.bibliotek.dk/soeg/

Library of Congress tilbyder noget tilsvarende:http://www.loc.gov/standards/sru/

DanBib's service er baseret på samme standard som LoC, så en klient skulle kunne trække data (XML) fra begge.
