Actually I hadn't considered that.
Your helpful suggestion will result in up to 12 used hard drives going to best buy!
Grats! You made a difference!
I went to college for 11 years.
And actually I graduated in 1993 (didn't feeling like posting to correct that) so the drive was pre 1993- and probably pre 1991.
I don't clearly recall events that happened over 20 years ago (tho I can still see the house I bought the drive at- it was on a corner with a bayou behind it).
I was a teetotalar back then but I had cancer in 91-92 and the chemo noticeably affected my brain. These days I'm a social drinker.
But for the nitpickers...
The oldest drive I remember was a 5MB for the apple 2 a friend bought for several hundred dollars. Capacity rapidly doubled after (while price dropped) that so 5-10-20-40-80-used 80 was probably about 6 years after the invention of mass market hard drives.
Per the WIKI
Hard drives had the capacity I remember around 1988 to 1990 so that fits.
Hmm. I wonder how polite the romans were for 700 years of conquering.
700 years is a pretty good run.
I wonder how polite the old west and the gold rush area were?
I think Mr. Heinlein had on some thick rose colored glasses with regard to government and how people actually behave.
It was used. But it could have been the early 90's.
I was still in college and I graduated in 96 so it had to be pre-1996.
"I can write this in a slow, OO language using OPM (other people's modules) and it'll be quick to target, bug free, lightweight, and fast. Because, uh, faster hardware and, uh, derp" Also, "I don't need to learn C, I have (fill in the blank with the latest fad language that purports to save programmers from having to really learn to program)" and also "I can use the (fill in the blank with the latest agile / tricky / ultra-testable) technique to Make My Code Shine!"
Oh yeah, and this charmer: "I don't have to bugfix version-2 or older, it's perfectly reasonable to expect everyone to upgrade."
I bought an IDE enclosure and i'm going over my drives...
The oldest- which still spun up was only 8 GB. I had a really hard time throwing it away since it still works. But i looked at the memory sticks on the desk... which cost $4.99 to $15.99 and had the same or higher storage.. and I put it in the trash.
Same for the 80GB drive from 2003.
Debating on the 120GB drive. It might actually be big enough to keep.
My first drive... cost me $88 and held... 88 megabytes. That was sometime in the mid to late 80's I think.
The right wing should be opposed on free-market principles. The left wing should be opposed on environmental grounds. So which politicians should be in favour of this regulation again?
The apolitical ones, untainted by all that divisive right/left idealism. You know, the ones everyone votes for: Democrats and Republicans.
If you think that's not Interstate Commerce, I have some marijuana to sell you.
No. He is. They are just his kind of clowns, so they don't look funny to him. That is the only difference.
traditionally people have not taken their mines with them when they moved on
This is your sole legitimate objection. The problem still isn't the mines, it is the people.
Actually, that made perfect sense. AND I thought it was funny. I have mod points, but wanted to let you know beyond +1 Funny or +1 Insightful
But it is much more convenient to blame Jenny than MMR vaccine having a lifespan!
Mines are a tool. Improper use of tools is human problem, not the tool's problem. Mines have kept our people safe while at the same time cause all sorts of problem for others. I get the point, but the reality is, some tools are very dangerous in the wrong hands, are perfectly safe in the right hands. Yet you blame the tool, rather than those that wield them. I find that illogical.
Obviously you didn't actually READ what I wrote. You aren't anti gun, you're anti citizens having guns. You are all for government having them. It isn't a matter what purpose guns serve, it is blanket statement that you don't like guns, except the guns in the hands of tyrant governments.
And pointing to Europe is very interesting, as Russia is invading Ukraine. I wonder how Russia would fare if Ukrainians had guns. Yeah, guns in citizen's hands isn't about gun saftey or murder, it is about letting government run roughshod over citizen's rights without the citizens having a recourse.
But of course, you're okay with governments having guns and lots of them. Gun Safe laws aren't the problem, people who don't understand that the last stand against tyranny is a well armed populace. Something Ukraine is suffering right now.
