The young will have their revenge, Mr Clegg | Nick Cohen | Comment is free | The Observer

The children in school uniform and the young mother carrying a baby did not seem like members of an organised protest movement let alone a dangerous mob.

New Statesman – Revealed: what the Lib Dems really said to Labour
Slightly longer than two words, but while they wanted things that have been proven to be unavailable from the Tories, the sticking point seems to have been short term economic policy, and the fact that the leradership of the Libd Dems is no longer Social Democratic, but neo-liberal in economic policy terms. Not actually a surprise to some of us.

Were all those Lib Dem MPs lying about fees if they meant it at the time?
Michael White's political briefing at Comment is free, The Guardian. Both he and his commentators miss the point. Woolas' material can't be comparted with the LibDems broken pledge not to increase fees, but Michael hits the nail on the head when he reminds us of Simon Highes' disgraceful and latterly shown to be hypocritcal "Straignt Choice" election campaign against Peter Tatchell. It seems the upshot is that it's illegal to lie about your opponent, but not about yourself.

New Statesman – The coalition will produce a farce of fairness
Ted Honderich is one of Britain's leading philosophers…. Here, in an exclusive essay for newstatesman.com, he considers the nature of liberalism and conservatism, and finds the first "indeterminate and irresolute" and the second lacking in any "principle at all to defend its self-interest". It is time, he argues, for us to take to the streets and demand, like the Puritan leader Thomas Rainsborough, that the coalition accept that "the poorest he that is in England hath a life to live as the greatest he."

The fact is that for many researchers, the marketplace of ideas is essentially a black market, because it's not feasible to pay up front for every article one might need to examine, not when the articles cost thirty bucks a pop. Doing responsible research means consulting the literature. Consulting the literature used to require having access to a top tier research library, either through employment there or through a library that could facilitate interlibrary loan (and pay for permissions once fair use was used up). Now that research universities are making cuts – whoa, what the hell? This is a crisis.

Commission Vice-President for the Digital Agenda Neelie Kroes said: "Increasing overall investment into ICT research is crucial for our future.

YEARFRAC – Excel – Microsoft Office
This looks like it might be the most important function for date manipulation in EXcel. It compares two dates and tells you their difference in years.

So lots of other functions help derive meaning, SIGN, ROUNDUP, MOD, IF etc. This is the microsoft page.

The Case for RAMClouds: Scalable High-Performance Storage Entirely in DRAM
A white paper from Stanford University. This paper argues for a new approach to datacenter storage called RAMCloud, where information is kept entirely in DRAM and large-scale systems are created by aggregating the main memories of thousands of commodity servers. We believe that RAMClouds can provide durable and available storage with 100-1000x the throughput of disk-based systems and 100-1000x lower access latency. The combination of low latency and large scale will enable a new breed of data-intensive applications.

Leak: EU pushes for criminalizing non-commercial usages in ACTA | La Quadrature du Net
"The ACTA agreement, by its opacity and undemocratic nature, allows criminal sanctions to be simply negotiated. The leaked document shows that the EU Member States are willing to impose prison sanctions for non-commercial usages of copyrighted works on the Internet as well as for 'inciting and aiding', a notion so broad that it could cover any Internet service or speech questioning copyright policies. EU citizens should interrogate their governments about their support to policies that obviously attack freedom of speech, privacy and innovation. Around the next round of negotiations and beyond, ACTA should be restlessly combatted and opposed worldwide." concludes Jérémie Zimmermann, spokesperson for citizen advocacy group La Quadrature du Net.

10 things you need to know about Ofcom's file sharing crackdown | News | TechRadar UK
We have some good news and some bad news. The good news is that Ofcom's proposed new Code of Practice doesn't look like it'll kill public Wi-Fi.
Open WIFi is already problematic without any DEAct implications
An interesting comment about how offering "Free WiFi" is unlikely ever to have been a way around the DE Act. This was published as a result of OfCom's proposed code of practice for making the DE Act's file sharing provisions work. Basically, offering a free wifi service is insufficient to exempt you from being considered a 'subscriber' and thus liable for listing as a potential downloader. I have always wondered how people expect to be able to afford it.
DE Act: does the UK qualify for a 2-tier copyright regime? – IpTegrity.com
What it means is that the only rights-holders who will ‘benefit' under the 3-strikes measures are those who have a
sufficiently large business to submit high volumes of allegations against Internet users, and who have a corporate budget to match. They will have to be large enough, in corporate terms, to deal on even terms with the likes of British Telecom, Sky, and Virgin.

In defence of the download
Framing the greatest innovation in human communications since the printing press as an enemy of cultural progress was always going to be a tough sell for the music industry. Public rhetoric around the Digital Economy Bill has focused on "protecting artists" from the evils of free filesharing, which is supposed to plunge us into a new cultural ice age in exactly the same way that home taping killed music. But as the Bill enters its final stages of being rushed through parliament, young artists and innovators are refusing to buy the orthodoxy of copyright protection -and many are fighting back.

RealClearPolitics – Electoral Map
Its hard to ignore the US election, and I have found this one of two useful sites. The other is http://www.electoral-vote.com/. The latter is currently calling Ohio & Florida as weakly Democrat and headlines the electoral college as the firm states plus the weak states, showing Obama as a clear winner. Real Clear, is leaving the too close to call out of the headline, but they have to go somewhere, and they also see Obama as the winner with 313 votes.

This option requires a paging file of at least 2 megabytes (MB) on the boot volume.
