The parent can't even set their own PIN code. For security they pick four random numbers that change every time. Then they just ask you to punch in the numerals for something like "one eight seven four" and you put in "1874". Unless your kid is really young or really dumb, there's no point.
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
We've improved Slashdot's video section; now you can view our video interviews, product close-ups and site visits with all the usual Slashdot options to comment, share, etc. No more walled garden! It's a work in progress -- we hope you'll check it out (Learn more about the recent updates).
The author actually talks about installing stuff on a live circuit while they explain how the system is terrible and doesn't work.
If you don't know enough to kill the circuit at the breaker before you start stripping wires, you are not only unqualified to do the work, you are risking injury up to and including death.
As much as I'm sure you're right, I think this is a great way to perform advertising. No flash animations, no autoplay video or sound clips, no clickbait... Just pure data-driven performance benchmarking. It's like they're saying "Let's attract tech-savvy customers by publishing something that will actually be informative and/or interesting to them, and then maybe some of them will be interested in what we sell" I can totally get behind this form of marketing!
It's effective. They're still my first recommendation to friends and family even though I've moved to a competitor (needed Linux support).
16GB ECC only costs a little over $100. You can way, way beat that price if you build your own.
I built a 4U rack with 12 hot swap bays, a quad core Haswell, 32 GB of ECC RAM for about that price, all up less drives. That includes an 8 SATA3 PCIe x8 card as well as 10 SATA3 built in to the motherboard.
I run FreeBSD 10 on it with ZFS. Why settle for a repackaged FreeBSD, way out of date, when you can use the real thing? They are both free.
The management UI.
I was actually saying the "importance" algorithms are probably more to to with advertising than what I want to see. And the threading already hides stuff at random, so I have no trust.
Yes, and I was attempting to explain that Inbox doesn't work that way at all.
Pardon, I thought they were implying Inbox would put advertising in the forefront and hide other, more relevant things from you in a similar fashion to some other products.
I don't think you've used Inbox yet. It's pretty good at filtering. Promo/spam is (mostly) correctly categorized and by default doesn't trigger a new email notification. Once or twice a day I sweep all the cruft away with a single click.
It's aimed at fulfilling an Inbox Zero model, which basically just means it presents an empty or nearly empty inbox as much as possible. It's actually quite good at doing it in an intuitive way.
Important things stick around, unimportant things are done away with very easily, but you can still get them back if you make a mistake or change your mind. Or set a reminder so that it goes away now but reappears later, like a snooze button. Personally I like it and have not used Gmail at all since I started using Inbox.
Most people don't care about what happens in some distant offshore country like USA.
Our terrible legislation has a tendency to later show up in other parts of the world.
Aeero was party to a crucial US Supreme Court case that was well-publicized in the mainstream media. Not our fault you live under a fucking rock, AC.
Do we really need yet another file server distro?
I'm a little more confused around the goal. It's designed to share eBooks in places that have no infrastructure, maybe not even a reliable electrical grid. Okay... but share with what? People in those parts of the world aren't running around with iPads.
This is more or less how technology standards work. Would you say the IEEE has no clout because manufacturers ship hardware while the standard is still in draft?
No, the loophole is there because paying taxes on a loss makes zero sense. Did you even read what you responded to?
Are the Chinese officials trying to score some celebrity porn?
It's possibly related to the protests in Hong Kong and the government's desire to identify the leaders/participants.
Oh, wait, people aren't supposed to keep cars that long any more.
Cars don't last like they used to. I have seen several 100 year old Ford Model-Ts. I have never seen a 100 year old Tesla.
Would you accept 87 years old?
