Yes I do, when he is making money off of my work, I get paid. Let me guess you are one of those complete scumbags that expect friends are your slaves?
Short lived for lead acid? last time I had a solar setup my lead acid batteries lasted 10 years.
And this was 15 years ago, today the newer lead acid tech is even better.
Grid intertie systems are available that failover to local battery storage.
Then the answer is having a couple of military in full battle dress holding guns to the heads of the CEO.
Yes I said heads. One gun pressed into the forehead, the other a shotgun jammed into his junk. The marines must YELL at full volume all the time at him.
Why is the power grid so crummy?
Simple. Pure unadulterated greed. The power company does not want to spend the money making it not crappy.
I still have SDLT tapes that are still readable after 15 years. Hell I have Bernoulli disks that are still readable. The one working like new drive was packed with it along with an assortment of SCSI cables and a current working SCSI to USB adapter and a linux driver on a CD. hopefully if anyone needs to read that data in the future they will figure it out.
I actually did the same thing 3 years ago for a friend. he arrived with a stack of 9 track tapes and a desktop tape drive. Luckily I was able to find an older PC with an ISA slot and installed the card linux had drivers for it and even had the tools to convert the data to standard ASCII. Read all 20 tapes and handed him a DVD disk with the contents of all the tapes. Made a cool $2000 for sitting and watching tape spin. it was cool.
...welcome our new military robotic overlords, SIR!
Just when you thought it couldn't get any worse after the weekend along comes a space rock to turn your already bad Monday into something even worse.
Well, since this is slashdot we may as well assume that the people who designed the things completely overlooked the obvious.
Dude, Windows admins are 1/5th the price of a good Unix admin. It is a lot cheaper. you can just hire anyone with a MSFT cert and be done with it at a bargain basement price.
No they will not be competent, not even have a clue about stability and security, but that does not matter.
So, in other words, Americans are a bunch of mindless drones who use their spare time posting mindless comments to mindless "news"... Who knew?
You mean, like posting to slashdot?
Besides, people will probably still own cars, just not as many of them. Why drive an SUV or sedan to work every day if it's mostly just yourself in the vehicle? Why own a pickup if you're only using it occasionally to haul stuff? Do you really need 2 cars between you and your spouse if only one of you drives to work every day? If I could easily rent any of those vehicles when the need arises, I might ditch all my cars and get a small EV for my daily commute. But most likely I'd still want to own that car, for practical and economical reasons.
2560X1440 is an upgrade. 1920X1080 is only good for laptops and casual use.
It's not 4:3, it's 1:1
Yes. And he was saying "4x3". As in "put 12 display in an array. 3 row of 4 screens each."
You end up with a giant wall, with 4:3 aspect ratio (as each tile is square).
Then you buy 132 more displays, arrange them in 16 columns of 9 (16x9) and you can cover a building's facade with your very own 16:9 tiled jumbo diplay in LD ("ludicrous definition") and create an open-air cinema with your neightbours
But, as he mentionned, driving 144 display tiles in total is going to be a little bit complicated.
(5 display max per Radeon card. 4 Radeon cards per motherboard. 20 displays per PC Tower. You could probably driver 2 tiles per display port using splitters like matrox is down, so you need 1 PC tower per 40 tiles. So at least 4 bit PC towers to drive all this).
But totally worth so you and your neighbours can together brag about being the first "Ludicruous Definition" cinema of the city (256x the resolution of Ultra HD).
