Trying to get companies with big internet presence to return their allocated blocks to the (ARIN)-pool would take for too much time and effort and is without any form of guarantee. Furthermore, even if they would manage to return the blocks to the pool in a couple of years, it would both be too late and too little and the demand for address space far outpaces the supply that ipv4 can offer. Realistically, ipv6 is the only long-term solution for any part of the world even including Africa as the increase of internet availability on the continent will rapidly consume their own pool. Hopefully, the African states are smart enough to push for an ipv6-enabled infrastructure.
Well, some people who earn less than $15 work in tech companies. That's a tech angle, right?
From the Wikipedia article for your google search
"As a relatively new field of study, men's studies was formed largely in response to, and as a critique of, an emerging men's rights movement, and as such, has been taught in academic settings only since the 1970s. In many universities, men's studies is a correlation to women's studies or part of a larger gender studies program, and as such its faculty tends to be sympathetic to, or engaged in, advocacy of feminist politics."
Sounds like a part of women studies to me.
Abolish women studies/gender studies
Women studies are sexist because there are no men studies and both produce crazy sexist feminazis.
For the rest, act cool.
When discussing documentation if thought about this rule:
90% of people want to have documentation
50% of people want to read documentation
10% of people want to write documentation
I think the above is the reason people don't write documentation. Few want to write documentation and they are often not motivated to write because people barely read documentation even if the see a need for it.
In all the years, this is probably the most ridiculous article I've read on
It's Stratfor, not Statfor!
Don't you have better things to do like doxxing people or making funny captions with holocaust pictures?
Two words: Regulatory Capture.
Yet something could be true in a literal sense but give a deceiving view of reality. Imagine you sitting down at a restaurant and offered something to drink. You immediatly request silverware and the next two servers that pass by your table receive the same request. Now you requested silverware 3 times in a literal sense before you could eat your salad but the reality of the story is that you had no problems with getting silverware, you were just being an impatient douchebag.
There, I've set up a situation that could be considered libel/slander/defamation but be true in every sense of the word.
Isn't that a rounding error for an organisation the size of the US government?
Was it even ever popular? I never had a Blu-Ray player in my house and I have only held a internal player once in my hands. In my opinion, Blu-Ray has failed as a successor to DVD. Even in the autumn days of DVD, you can find disks and players everywhere. With the better Blu-Ray, adoption had been hurting and it has never seen the lift-off its predecessor had. I doubt that a successor to Blu-Ray will fare much better.
SSD has gotten less expensive, but it still is about $75/$1.00 a gig, well more than a comparable spinny platter.
More like $0.50 per gig. Prices have been dropping fast and cheap SSDs are finally on the rise. You can now get an 240GB SSD for $100 which is not bad considering this was absolutely impossible one year ago.
With memory being dirt cheap I ask: Who cares?
