Other than the fact that doing so would likely violate several intra-galactic treaties, that would be an excellent idea.
It IS a marketing ploy. There is no a priori reason for 'natural spring water' to be particularly clean or pure. It depends on WHAT rocks the water went through, whether there were heavy metals leaching through the water table, whether there are bacteria from nearby sources that are leaking though and a host of other things.
"Natural spring water" makes as much health sense as 'Naturally radioactive'.
Sorry if you're deeply offended. The world is like that sometimes.
You do realize that these systems are connected to the Internet? The same Internet that everyone else is connected to. The fact that the server is in the middle of the ocean is irrelevant. As is the fact (true enough) that a significant fraction of commercial shipping is run by Greek firms.
I suppose it being in Greek might be an example of security by obscurity, but it's just TCP/IP and the same Microsoft code that everyone else uses.
Indeed. Look at the picture! It is just a line of metallic contacts. Easy peasy to make waterproof. The pointy parts are going to be on the band.
This is a pretty rough crowd.
Best to always wear your helmet.
Hey, it's not raining at my house. Moreover, we're going to have dinner in a little while.
Is Slashdot trying to out-twitter Twitter?
Your pharmacist has sold your prescription data to some shady third party for advertising purposes. Somehow they managed to loophole that out of HIPAA - it's a 'service' for your own good - or something along those hallucinatory lines.
Supposedly you can opt out but you first have to know if you got opted in.
I'm actually surprised that this hasn't generated much flack, but there are so many things to get angsted at I think that most people are just overwhelmed. Personally, I ran out of extra angst a long time ago.
While I don't hold myself out as an expert in rack mounted UPS systems, I can safely say that APC is pretty bad after tossing a bunch of them out shortly after they're purchased.
I have found the folks at Don Rowe helpful for power inverter stuff. In my case for marine applications. I really like the KISAE inverters / UPS - have three of them that have been running for over a year in some fairly tough conditions.
But there has to be a better professional vendor than APC. Even their mid range stuff is put together like typical Chinese consumer electronics. The KISAE units are much better finished and have beefier PCB boards, mountings and hardware.
That's nice. I pay $80 USD to get 5 mbs and have to pay long distance charges. And I live in the US, a third world country.
lol, greece. Your military still has the mentality of a '70s tinpot dictatorship and you'd roll over in 5 minutes if attacked. Your opinion is irrelevant.
And your opinion is worth
No, with Elon it's more of a religious thing.
Sort of like saying Mass.
You're using APC still? Are you mad? Or is '50 Shades of Grey' your favorite TV show?
There are so many decent UPS / inverter-charger systems out there. Ones that use real batteries. APC is just expensive junk.
There's no grant money available from government for that. It's only available (in huge quantities) for supporting the paradigm. Strange but true.
I rather thought that energy companies had a few extra dollars running around. Exxon's 2014 revenue was over 400 billion. Surely they could fund a few studies all by themselves.
Looks like you lost your mind AND your Return key. You might want to turn around and retrace your life to see if you can find them.
This isn't just landing approaches. It's following planes as they fly all over the country.
What are you suggesting? Thousands of spotters with binoculars and CB radios? So commercial flights are to be restricted to a time slot between 10 AM and 3 PM in the summer only?
