Whitman lost to Jerry Brown, BTW, thus earning Brown the singular distinction of having to clean up the mess left by a B-grade movie actor twice.
Very very occasionally, if the description sounds interesting, I'll paste the description/requirements into Google. Most of these spamming third-party recruiters just copy-paste from public job postings, so Google can usually find the original posting on the employer's Web site.
Everyone is going off on the humidity - that's the least of your problems. Assuming that it's a non-condensing atmosphere (i.e. fog), the warmth in the box will keep any additional condensation from happening and the box will run fine.
High temperature may be an issue. I live in Phoenix, and putting a server outside is, well, not the worlds best idea. If you live somewhere where the high temps in summer are less than 90 degrees, you're probably fine from a temperature standpoint.
Bugs and dust will be the big problems. Solve those, and you'll be good to go.
I've built boxes before that housed computers in my garage. I made'em out of plywood, made them reasonably airtight, and put muffin fans on one end, pulling outside air through a high-quality air filter (http://www.amazon.com/20x30x1-19-5x29-5-Filter-Furnace-Filters/dp/B00GBJIENE), and put exhausts (wire-covered) on the other side. Worked fine through several summers where the garage got up into the high 90's, didn't have any problems with bugs or dust or component failures.
The two or 4 disk NAS boxes are a great size for this kind of thing. My current home server is an ancient 4-bay Buffalo Terastation case, that I ripped the motherboard out of and replaced it with a low-power 12-volt motherboard (ASRock Q1900DC-ITX) and installed FreeNas on it. Works great, and something like that would work remarkably well for your needs.
Good luck, and don't listen to the crybabies.
They've clarified this many times.
No, they haven't. All the "clarifications" I can find are simply regurgitations of the same ambiguous phrasing.
When you realize that Microsoft have been openly discussing a subscription-based version of Windows, then the phrase, "Free for the first year," takes on an entirely different meaning, now doesn't it? Microsoft has not clarified this, even to discredit it.
And even if MS isn't planning on a subscription-based flavor of Windows, they still have been abundantly less than clear exactly which version of Windows 10 you'll be receiving for free. Will it be a kind-for-kind trade (Home version for Home version, "Pro" version for "Pro" version, etc.), or will everyone get the lowest tier SKU available, probably with Bing plastered everywhere?
It would be nice if I were wrong about this. But Microsoft's history demands that I be very suspicious of Gateses bearing gifts.
All of which makes me deeply suspicious of what this "free" version of Windows actually is. We clearly haven't been told the whole story yet.
As it happens, about three years ago I started doing an irregular series of Let's Play/Drown Out videos on YouTube with my colleage, GammaDev. Both of us are former employees of 3DO, and we covered The Deal that Never Happened in a video about two years ago (seek to 25:12).
Frankly, I'm having a hard time seeing how Lenovo recovers from this.
- Expand systemd to the point where large swaths of everything depend on it, so that he is controlling as much of the code base as possible.
- Insult Linus Torvalds for a while to try to undermine his authority.
- Fork Linux, or demand that Linus give control of Linux over to him, or he will rage-quit and take his code with him.
I don't see it unfolding that way. Remember what happened when BitKeeper tried to get up in his business. Linus, if provoked, could write an init/system management framework in a couple weeks (and probably name it "twerp" or some such). And I suspect he would do so long before things got to stage #3, just to prove the point.
Well, a quick Google search shows you wrong - there is well-documented research into the amount of radioactivity in coal plant emissions. As an example, USGS: http://pubs.usgs.gov/fs/1997/fs163-97/FS-163-97.html
Is it an issue? The released radioactivity from a coal plant is up to 100 times that of a nuclear power plant - but those emissions are so ludicrously low that you can treat it as (100 * 0) = 0. There really isn't a health issue from the emissions.
Mercury, Sulfur, Nitrogen, sure - Radioactivity, not so much.
It's not Super Bowl Day yet where I am, and you're not Frist Post either.
You have a weird definition of "virus" and "malware".
In my world, Malware includes everything that gets installed on your machine (surreptitiously or not) that does "bad" things ("mal" = (french) bad, evil). That would include worms, viruses, rootkits, unwanted toolbars, home page redirectors, Stuxnet, Cryptolocker, and just about every other form of third-party computer abuse.
Virus is a subset of malware.
C'mon, guys, this is copy-pasted marketing fluff. Better is expected of you.
