I am a member of an Australian Standards committee BD 58. This
 +
committee wanted to borrow just the electrical safety information from
 +
CPSISC Pocketbook V2 for an annex. As the Australian Standards and the
 +
process is closed it could not be a Share Alike style license like GPL,
 +
CC-BY-SA, etc., but the CC-BY attribution license was ideal. This
 +
licence was recommended by the Government 2.0 Taskforce.

The document was a DRMed PeDoFile with just copyright and no mention of

a license. To crack it or use it in any way I needed to obtain written
 +
permission to supercede the secret and unknown DRM conditions.

 +
Australia and BD 58. Then I had job of finding who to ask. I finally
 +
was able to contact DCCEE - Legal at climatechange.gov.au in Nov 2011.

I was asked to obtain some aerial photography from a WA state agency. I
**
+
requested TIFFs as they come out of the camera as this had meta data
**
+
that can be used to stitch the strips together. I had made this clear,
 +
but what I got was photoshopped Adobe "JPEGs". My intention was to
 +
make JFIF JPEGs with the size and balance that I wanted, but what I had
 +
got was already JPEGed!

CMOS CPUs are clocked much faster than thermal limits permit so they
 +
must slow down as they heat up. When processes have yielded the CPU
 +
stops and cools down. This means that the CPU can run much faster in
 +
bursts than it could in continuous operation. This mode of operation
 +
was first used in CMOS mainframes where a valid process will yield for
 +
IO. Something similar was done in calculator key-press, get, process,
 +
update display and then sleep to save battery power.

Revision as of 10:31, 8 January 2014

Miniconfs/OpenGov

All information that intended for public consumption should be at least
CC-BY (or lGPL for software). I would prefer CC-BY-SA and full GPL for
software so changes are more visible. This is essential for software.
Software disclosure is more important as software can be used to change
data.

I am a member of an Australian Standards committee BD 58. This
committee wanted to borrow just the electrical safety information from
CPSISC Pocketbook V2 for an annex. As the Australian Standards and the
process is closed it could not be a Share Alike style license like GPL,
CC-BY-SA, etc., but the CC-BY attribution license was ideal. This
licence was recommended by the Government 2.0 Taskforce.

The document was a DRMed PeDoFile with just copyright and no mention of
a license. To crack it or use it in any way I needed to obtain written
permission to supercede the secret and unknown DRM conditions.

I obtained advice which also recommended that I seek to obtain the
material under the CC-BY license. This was discussed with Standards
Australia and BD 58. Then I had job of finding who to ask. I finally
was able to contact DCCEE - Legal at climatechange.gov.au in Nov 2011.

I finally got a reply in Jun 2012 which was CC-BY, but with additional
restrictions.

> (a) The material must be used in an appropriate context and reproduced
> accurately without distortion of meaning.
There were many factual errors and only some of the electrical safety
section was useful. We had members of wiring committee EL 1 to assist.

Attribution (b) is reasonable and required by the CC-BY license. By
attributing the original document any changes would be visible.

> (c) The material must not be used for commercial sale or profit.
Australian Standards are not free or open. They cost money and
discussions are confidential.

This DRMed PeDoFile cost a bomb to produce and only had marginal
entertainment value and was in conflict with the Australian Standard
3999 used by competent established thermal insulation installers.
However, inspectors off the dole queues were using this bad fiction.

They then did another one. This was mentioned at BD 58, but no one else
was interested. I have not reviewed it. We do not use it.

I was asked to obtain some aerial photography from a WA state agency. I
requested TIFFs as they come out of the camera as this had meta data
that can be used to stitch the strips together. I had made this clear,
but what I got was photoshopped Adobe "JPEGs". My intention was to
make JFIF JPEGs with the size and balance that I wanted, but what I had
got was already JPEGed!

Some sources of data are plaintext. This is least obfuscated form of
data. I was told that they will be helpful and paste it in Excel and
then send you an XLS or worse still an XLSX of it!

These are examples of undisclosed software being used to change data.

Perhaps government agencies can not read my plaintext email as they are
using Outlook?

This is why I always discuss via telephone.

The plaintext version of text/plain media type is described in RFC 20,
822, 2045, 2046 (4.1 Text Media Type), 2822 and 5322. The precedents
for plainetxt go back to teleprinting. In the earliest form you cut
ticker tape on space and that multiple spaces are paragraph breaks
where you skip a line. This was done later with CRLF and CRLFCRLF by
TTY operators. Similar plaintext is also the source code basis of
software.

CMOS CPUs are clocked much faster than thermal limits permit so they
must slow down as they heat up. When processes have yielded the CPU
stops and cools down. This means that the CPU can run much faster in
bursts than it could in continuous operation. This mode of operation
was first used in CMOS mainframes where a valid process will yield for
IO. Something similar was done in calculator key-press, get, process,
update display and then sleep to save battery power.

Linux has the ignore_nice_load feature which stops nice jobs breaking
power management that must now be regarded as essential. Linux does not
usually stop, but it does slow the CPU down. This cools the CPU and
allows it to burst up to full speed when priority jobs become ready.

When you are running stuff like https://boinc.berkeley.edu/ you may not
want it to slow down your apps. Running it nice alone will not prevent
your apps from being slowed down. You need to give your CPU a chance to
cool down so that your apps can run faster.
