"Using Metadata to find Paul Revere"
Sorry about that mistake. I'm not a FreeBSD expert, I'm someone who is setting up a FreeBSD file server, after 10 years of using Linux. So I'm in the market for a book like this, and of course it is largely useless to me, because of course I'm using ZFS. I was confused by the PC-BSD installer, which *does* default to ZFS.
Now that ZFS is the default operating system for new installs of FreeBSD 10.x, it sounds like this book documents a lot of hard won technical insights that have been made obsolete by ZFS. Why would I configure RAID 10 for UFS when ZFS provides superior data protection? And so on. It's probably useful for people who have parachuted in and now must maintain a legacy FreeBSD system. It doesn't sound particularly useful for someone who is migrating from Linux to FreeBSD right now, since this is all about how people *used* to configure FreeBSD storage.
My first though without even reading the summary:
Of course pointing it to the South would "catch" more integrated spectrum, but not all of that can be converted to electricity efficiently (they are more efficient for longer wavelength), so it should not *hurt* much to till them westwards (or eastwards), where/when blue light ("useless for") is filtered by the atmosphere...
By the way, blue light is still absorbed/heats/damages the cells, but not gets converted to voltage. Or some such...
Aligning with peak demand might make more sense though.
There is a reason we have two ears -- to be able to distinguish the direction the sound is coming from!
But it is not actively clicking and listening to the echo (though probably it would work much worse for a blind person who is also deaf on one ear!)...
Remind me to start a company specialising in generating 3D CAD models of custom dildos!
By the way, have they figured out how to print softer, rubber-like materials yet? I have an idea of a sister company too...
I would say that an entity that managed to get there and posess some mined material up the Earth gravity well can probably deal with attempts to de-legalize it rather efficiently.
The discovery was made when the woman was admitted to the Chinese PLA General Hospital of Jinan Military Area Command in Shandong Province complaining of dizziness and nausea. She told doctors she'd had problems walking steadily for most of her life, and her mother reported that she hadn't walked until she was 7 and that her speech only became intelligible at the age of 6."

I thought that in 21st century we are talking about Gbits/inch^2, not just bits...
Electronics there is probably not rad-hard... Bioagents should be OK though!
Mod parent up! Informative, instead
