I've only found a few with the same functionality as exchange, and i can say that they are not free. while they have "community" versions, to get full exchange functionality you end up having to pay licencing fees to access and use it, and in the end it is borderline cost effective vs exchange. (yes the licenses are cheaper but support and experienced techs aren't)
I think you are thinking about the Exchange server filesystem api. for exchange server 2003 and performance reasons exchange would replace the file system io with a special customized for exchange version. A few competitors complained that this was unfair, i think the final verdict was if they wanted "fair" they where free to write their own drop in replacement for the filesystem i/o
I don't think the issue is so much with having a skimmer. Right now if i show up with a card that doesn't look like an actual CC the person at the counter will think something is up. But if this gets going and has blessings of the CC makers, and looks official the teller will just say "hey he has that neat new card" and not care that you are no infact using a skimmer.
I'm sorry but i just don't trust those things for anything above the lightest load.. the way they are made ALL of the load is on the weld from the ball to draw bar. and honestly the welds look questionable.. especially when the ball and the drawbar look to be different grades of steel..
There are so many things i see when i look at that, no way i'm towing with one..
And if you have ever seen SAP licensing costs that is less than yearly maintenance costs alone for a 900 employee company.
With Tesla employing ~3000 people 1.25m is cheep compared to SAP, really cheap.
NASA uses RTGs which are HORRID when it comes to efficiency. BUT they are extremely simple, reliable, and have a very long very predictable lifespan and usability. Also do to it being on another world they don't have to worry about it's interaction with people or even the environment.
RTG's are the exact opposite to any power problem on this little world.
if he can show that the decision was made completely as an investor and zero input from his job at the company then sure.
Thats going to be hard to prove with him being CEO and all.
we were both thinking along the same lines
meanwhile, some mechanical watches of decades ago *never* needed anything because they were self-winding from wrist movement. ah progress...
funny you say that, i'm currently wearing one that is a little over 40 years old.. never have to bother with it, always works..
I want my watch to tell me the time, that is what a watch is for, if i wanted it to be something else, it would be something else.
Actually this is a simple math problem.
Replace all at once
Replace as they burn out
Either way i have to physically replace each bulb.
It is more cost efficient to replace them all at once in a sequential pattern, rather than one at a time randomly, Thats because the cost to replace is the same, but i'm minimizing my travel distance & times as i'm going dispatch->pole->pole->dispatch rather than dispatch->pole-dispatch->pole->dispatch. You would be surprised but travel times are normally the highest impacting item when it comes to wrench time measurements. Also to add to it, if i wait and replace as they fail i'm paying X for electricity over that time, where if i replace it now i pay Y which is lower than X. The power savings is a fringe benefit compared to labor, but non the less it is factored in.
The biggest question that comes to mind for this type of decision is the time value of money. I can spend X now or X+1 from Now till then. which one is lower cost overall between now and then isn't always a straightforward answer.
The is a big difference between Traffic lights and street lights.. the one they are talking about "street lights" are the ones facing downward towards the road, if there is enough snow to block the out, i doubt anyone will care at that point that they don't have a functioning street light.
I always heard the USAF referred to as "white mans welfare" by the people i knew in it.. Always have a job, only the officers are in harms way, and you get retirement too.
If you don't nurture them then yes they don't grow. You don't have to force things on them but rather encourage their natural want to learn.
Now having a child (3 years old at the moment) i'm amazed at how quick they can learn, and feel sorry for children who's Parents don't interact with them and teach them. Too many parents want the schools to do everything for them, yet it is what they do outside of school which has the greatest impact to what they learn.
We are lucky, we don't say "Damn, I wasn't that dumb when I was that age!" instead my wife and I both go "Damn, he is smart, smarter than either of us at that age." and as long as we keep constantly feed him new ideas and information and reinforce it he will continue to be smarter than we were or are.
Again, just for the soapbox, the fact that children on average are getting "dumber" is completely the fault of their Parents.
your USB port is certified as not unleashing terrifying cyber-demons to everything that connects to it.
But what if that is it's advertized and intended purpose? IS there something saying i can't sell a device that unleashes terrifying cyber-demons?
I see this as just plain discrimination. Won't someone think of all the cyber-demons sitting around looking for work? Please people let them work, in turn they will create more work for SysAdmins and therefor will be a job creator, please people think of the jobs!
We're the only animals in history that knowingly practice birth control so there's hope for us yet I think.
Not really, there are a lot of animals out there that do this. Dolphins have Sex for fun, and a lot of smaller groups have passive systems that make them fertile only when their living conditions can support offspring (which is better than what we have now as humans).
