You don't move to AWS if you care about budget, uptime, control, security, nor ownership of your data and software.
* Budget - cheap to free to develop on, rapidly escalating costs for enterprise usage.
* uptime - AWS has had notable outages with relatively long recovery times. It's happened more than once.
* control - see uptime - you had no options when that happened.
* security - ultimately, you cannot control security if you don't have the hardware, or even software, under your control
* ownership - since you don't own the hardware nor software, all your data and software placed on the server is there for anyone with access to see. And there are people with access.
In the game you can get antibiotics resistance to your deadly virus,.
No you can't. A virus is not affected by antibiotics.
I'd tell you, but I got a National Security Letter telling me I can't.
With the keys we readily hand over when warranted.... o_O
Who needs a warrant? Just a couple of bucks for our "anonymized" (wink wink) data.
You seem to be implying they should fire an H1B programmer and keep the factory worker or middle manager, but unless one of the latter two can step up and do the programming, it's not going to work very well.
At least I'm guessing most of the H1B employees aren't doing middle management or factory work. I could be wrong.
You are wrong.
Coal is baseload solar is not a replacement for baseload. The only good renewable replacement for baseload is hydro "the original baseload source of power". Wind is a marginal replacement for baseload but you really need large natural gas peaking plants to back up wind.
That's a false premise. You can build large cisterns that store excess energy by pumping in water, then using that during peak periods to meet demand. It's 100% solar. These could be built on the coast or even slightly in the sea, so there's no shortage of water until we run out of sea water. It also serves to level demand, since all excess demand can always go to the cisterns, even if they're full, since they'd just overflow and form a nice waterfall or similar water feature. The same could be used to store excess wind generated power, completing removing the need for fossil fuel or nuclear energy. Maybe keep one plant as a museum piece.
I have a 2013 plasma, and can pause a picture for an hour without a problem. Yes, sometimes people leave something on pause instead of turning it off when leaving for a while. No burn in issues at all, and I checked. Again, this is not a problem with new modern plasmas. Cheap or old, yes, they probably have problems. So do LCD/LED/OLEDS. CRTs do too. So it's not a unique problem for plasmas.
That said, as CRTs are dead, I do love the plasma's picture. In comparison, my 2010 top rated LED looks cheap, flat, lacking in depth, the criticisms could go on. As soon as you scale up to larger screens, the flaws for each become more obvious. The plasma generates more heat. I'll accept that for a picture I can actually watch.
The thing with plasmas is that the first generations, and some of the cheap ones in later generations too, have very bad burn-in prevention..
So it is a myth, for a new modern screen. If you look for the cheapest you can buy, you'll succeed in getting less than you want. Or, you get what you pay for, really.
