You can't? I can always just set my alarm a little later and just close my eyes again. Guess everyone is different.
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).
Call me crazy, Mr Anon, but isn't while you are sleeping the BEST time to charge your phone? I know it is mine. When I go to bed, I make sure my alarm is on, my phone's 'block spam' feature is on and I plug it in to my charger. In the morning, I always have full charge and am woken by my alarm.
I have been using phones for my alarm clocks since my old nokia when I was in university. I have a job, sadly, posting on slashdot isn't it. Goodbye
Your phone doesn't already have alarm features? Couldn't you use that as your alarm clock and, when turning it off check to see if you need to get up or can sleep in? I mean, you are already reaching out of bed for your alarm anyway.
Hey, I actually found a use for a smart watch the other day. Dominos pizza (at least the aussie version) app supports them to show how long your pizza/food is taking to cook and be delivered.
Well, they did help build the 'sue your users into oblivion' business model that became ever so popular. That counts right?
This is the default state for all new laptops. Effectively this is their 'pre usable' mode of operation.
Nah, all they need to do is put them on a store shelf
Well then, today is your lucky day!
This one is still up for sale and comment. Have fun
Depending on what currency you are converting to. For AU$, you are correct. But for US$, your two pence is worth 3c.
As for the topic... yeah, I never planned to actually address it.
Whoa, scratch that.
Your new Internet Banking Password must contain 6 or more characters including at least one character from two of the following categories:
- upper case letters
- lower case letters
- numbers or
- standard special characters (eg. !,.@#$%)
Seems they are being much better. Time to roll a nice, heavy-bit-count password for this.
NAB is nothing great, but you do require 2-factor whenever transferring anything bank to bank.
Only way to move money out of NAB online without using the 2-factor is with bpay.
Did you see the numbers on some of those seagate batches?
Now while I admit that 300 or so drives isn't really enough to warrant a sample size when some of their batches are in the tens of thousands, but if you get 300 drives and almost 70 of them die within a year, would you keep buying drives?
"More work is still needed to define policies that would allow array users and manufacturers to detect unusually disk failure rates and take the appropriate actions before any data loss takes place." - Last line in the conclusion.
This implies that not all the spare drives are active and ready to go all the time and that some/most would be kept powered down as cold spares. Of course this same guy is likely to get another paper done where he examines the cost to run the array and how many drives could be left cold and still achieve the 5-9s reliability. Heck, if the software managing the drives is smart, it would rotate active/spare drives in and out, working them in quickly to get them all past the 'first 18 months high failure' rate to the sweet spot, then swap in and out over the lifespan of the array to enable the array to be at highest reliability for longer.
Hrmm, maybe I should look at building such an algorithm, a quick google search doesn't turn any such systems up.
Those are the ones outside of the special viewing room. They look grim and apathetic because they aren't in that room masturbating.
So cute, does your mummy know you use that language?
