If we look at jet aircraft, wear depends on the airframe and the engines, and the airframe seems to be the number of pressurize/depressurize cycles as well as the running hours. Engines get swapped out routinely but when the airframe has enough stress it's time to retire the aircraft lest it suffer catastrophic failure. Rockets are different in scale (much greater stresses) but we can expect the failure points due to age to be those two, with the addition of one main rocket-specific failure point: cryogenic tanks.
How long each will be reliable can be established using ground-based environmental testing. Nobody has the numbers for Falcon 9R yet.
Weight vs. reusable life will become a design decision in rocket design.
As does using the month name.
yyyy-mm-dd Some description
=> Subfolders as necesary
yyyy-mm-dd to yyyy-mm-dd Some description
=> Subfolders with time stamps, etc
This is in both alphabetical and chronological order.
Timezone handling seems to be very weak as well.
That said, I can't live without Lightroom. I guess I'm going to making LR5 last a very long time because I don't want to change to rental licensing a la creative cloud.
Yeah really. And we should have a secret spy agency that doesn't ponce around but just tortures people to get answers.
Did you mean 8 litres / 100 km?
Most big data is videos, photo and audio which are played sequentially or in big enough chunks like one photo at the time that random access times and IOPS don't matter, a defragged hard drive is simply perfect for the task.
Err, no. Depends on what kind of video you're doing. In the video world it's easy to end up bottlenecked by disk I/O.
HD resolution ProRes files for instance will tax any hard drive, requiring over 40MB/s (330mbs) throughput:
I'm working with 4K sources, of which some are uncompressed. You need RAID or SSD.
Like others I found the headline confusing. I read it as "Researchers are predicting the use of Wikipedia as a vector for the spread of disease". This may mean that:
- Disinformation and ignorance are diseases.
- Memes and computer viruses are diseases.
- Wilipedia contains information that leads to depression.
- Instructions on Wikipedia lead to substance abuse.
- This is getting entertaining, fill in your own reason here.
One of the definitions I found was:
One who makes great sacrifices or suffers much in order to further a belief, cause, or principle.
I am sure that fits. While SpaceShip II is mainly intended for a non-exploration purpose, the program has resulted in some significant advances in rocketry and White Knight II has significant non-tourism use. These pilots have been involved in other space efforts, I remember the one who was injured from the Rotary Rocket test flights. There are lots of safer ways for these folks to make as much money as a test pilot is paid. They do what they do to advance our progress in aeronautics and space.
Martyrs? Who killed them for their beliefs?
Go away, troll. They certainly died while pursuing something intensely important that they were willing to risk their lives for. The fact that you weren't around to pull the trigger makes them no less martyrs.
Anyway, I have better uses of my time than to waste another minute with you.
