Microsoft begins denying updates to some Windows 7 users

Microsoft this week began blocking Windows 7 and 8.1 PCs equipped with the very newest processors from receiving security updates, making good on a policy it announced but did not implement last year.But the company also refused to provide security fixes to Windows 7 systems that were powered by AMD’s “Carrizo” CPUs, an architecture that was supposed to continue receiving patches.The decree that led to the update bans, whether allowable or not under Microsoft’s new policy, was revealed in January 2016, when the company said making Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 run on the latest processors was “challenging.” Microsoft then ruled that Windows 10 would be the only supported edition on seventh-generation and later CPUs and simultaneously dictated a substantial shortening of support of both editions.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here

RabbitMQ – Run a highly available cluster with Docker and HAProxy

README.md

Read the documentation
A docker stack to create, test and benchmark a rabbitmq cluster in high availability configuration:
Tool
Version
RabbitMQ
v3.6.5
HAProxy
v1.6.3
PHP
v7.1
Docker
v1.12+
Docker-compose
v1.8+
HAProxy as a load balancer
N nodes cluster
Durable, Mirrored and Persistent Exchanges, Queues and Messages
HA custom policies
Parallel producers and consumers
Node failures and network partition experiment
If you have questions, comments or suggestions please just create issues.
The architecture

3 RabbitMQ nodes but we can add a lot more.
3 docker networks to be able to simulate network partition.
1 HAProxy node to load balance request and to be “failure proof”.
1 default network for the consumers and producers to connect with nodes through HAProxy.
The stack
A lot of great tools (thanks to all awesome authors)
Tests / Benchmark
With this stack you will be able to experiment:
Load Balancing
Node failure
Network partition
Messages persistency
Message NO ACK and retries
Setup / Start / Stop the cluster
Read the documentation for Setup / start / stop
Swarrot/SwarrotBundle

A quick start guide to Commodore 64 assembly programming on Windows (2011)

Update: All needed files for this tutorial can be found in the GitHub repo linked in the bottom of this page.
I noticed that a lot of people are creating graphical programs to the Commodore 64 again, so I decided to let you know of the tools I use, and how you can use them to create C-64 apps in Windows. I might write more articles on C-64 programming if there’s an interest for it. If you want more, let me know by writing a comment to this article
Note: You do not need to own a Commodore 64 to create programs. In this article, I’m going to use a cross assembler and an emulator.
Cross Assembler?A cross assembler enables you to assemble the code on your computer, and then later transfer the code to a real C-64 or an emulator to run the program. In my opinion, this makes it a lot
