they said that about paper every time it's been invented, but the problem with paper is it's inability to handle too little humidity (dry rot) too much humidity (mildew etc) and it's tempting nesting site for insects that routinely eat tree leaves. oh and it's bitrate per energy put into it is atrocious especially if you throw in modern hermetically sealed deoxygenated and humidity controlled environs. but it is easy to copy, any schooled child can copy letters from one piece of paper to another. but computers are even more awesome for data sharing and copying. even if laws against it exist. but i digress. having an optical backup is fine, there are times where optical is necessary, but it doesn't prevent accidental damage of discs or make sorting them easier. bitrot detection is an underserved market. raid has it, bluray doesn't and some filesystems actively have deduplication to reduce the number of copies left undeleted are few. anyways, the best way to check for bitrot is by scanning the md5sum on them with a script that runs automatically on the server that sends out the files to the offsite and if bitrot is detected it simply requests the data from the off site storage. before it is lost.
the apostles wanted to die in the end. immortality is a bitch, all you can do is repeat experiences you once enjoyed until there is nothing worth doing.
incest in bible: Genesis 19:32-36 it's okay when the child initiates it with wine. but later in Leviticus 18:6, it is wrong and punishable by death Leviticus 20:12
also The Bible has nothing to say against pedophilia.
afterall adam was made in a day and naked and asked for a partner which was made from his rib. Genesis 2:20-22 if eve was only a day old before adam slept with her well, sorry i can't not laugh at genesis in the bible.
if china makes knockoffs of everything even smartphones they don't necessarily license android, against the law, but then the Chinese knockoffs have never cared about that before.
the problem with your 8 megapixel camera is that it saves the files as jpeg images. jpeg is a lossy compression even at 100% unless you have a DSLR that can do TIFF or RAW images you are being hampered by cheap hardware on regular cameras. if you are using a phone it is even worse than mass market cameras. if you buy a 31 megapixel camera like the nokia keep in mind it has a diffferent os than other cameras and microsoft and nokia have more experience with compressing images than stupid android or apple cameras that take awful stills below what their video capture rates because they use h.264 for video and jpeg for stills. also capturing video puts the phone processor into high speed mode meaning you get about 30 minutes of video recording. good digital cameras don't come at a cheap price. and they use a lot of cpu overhead.
there are two problems with this http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stuxnet according to wikipedia stuxnet was to be self deleting in 2012 but is mentioned in TFA, and stuxnet doesn't affect linux systems at all. also the space station only uses linux for their laptops. so TFA is very poorly written and with no fact checking. scada is not based on linux either it is windows based so tfa is way off base. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SCADA
if they can make smartwatches why cant everyone use NTP to sync all their clocks. or even better the atomic clock radio signal that is broadcast every day all day and all night too. people don't like DST solely on having to change clocks. automate it and they wont cry.
when i read http://xkcd.com/1286/ apparently password hints were exposed in the clear. not cool not cool...
you are way off base with your assumptions.
the problem with insurance is that adjusters can no longer simply deny the claim under ACA reforms. the law killed predatory insurance, where the fine print makes it so they can collect premiums with no intent of ever paying to the working poor who try to find affordable healthcare, and in generations past have always been burned to find out they not only had a $3000-5000 deductible and a $20,000 cap or worse. ACA was written to fix this and people say now they can't afford healthcare because before they didn't really have real healthcare. these companies have come and gone over the years, but they are all regulated out of business by ACA which defines so many rules and has the teeth to shutdown malicious predatory insurance scams.
okay, i have been using windows 7 for quite a while now, but just found out that setting the screen resolution to 1080p does not actually set resolution to 1080p. from the desktop if you right click it says 'screen resolution' by default that is set to 1080p BUT it is overridden by a feature called 'display percentage' which defaults to 100% yet in my experience on a custom from oem build vs a dell setup that it really defaults to 125% of resolution. this means less room for desktop icons and
i have a niece and a nephew and they have had access to windows computers their whole life. and it is scary how wrong they are in what they do. they made anti virus software give up trying to work. and they do it with flash and java games inside a firefox browser window.
they now have tablets which they pollute with free games that aren't even in the popular games for android. now i made a lot of mistakes with computers, but the computers i was given access to were amazing relics. 1 mb of ram for a video driver. slow processor windows dying and being reinstalled from 35 floppies... ugh i always had to teach myself and other people always asked me for help with their problems... i have a few friends on slashdot but while i am not any smarter i do have better hardware and i no longer assume windows is safe. for a while i wouldn't even run windows. linux is okay i run it in emergencies and in virtual machines, but it just doesn't work good enough for me for what i do for fun these days. i see no reason to run an os that won't play blurays and won't burn data blurays correctly from a user friendly gui 99% bug in k3b and has mostly low end games from fans... though there has been efforts to remedy the gaming situation, while i only game on weekends gamefly unlimited pc play is an impressive setup. when the games run.
living with family from making bad choices in my personal life. it is NOT easy even on foodstamps i was only able to afford 3 weeks of food a month. and that was before they did sequester cuts and the expiration of stimulus raises. when i worked i was told to earn my way through life but i remember well surviving on buttered noodles and instant ramen. i also recall having grilled cheese every single day too. i also recall doing pracs studies and getting my only decent meals at the studies... living off fast food $5 a day on days i worked at my only job at taco bell. i was qualified for food stamps but too proud to apply. of course i was dealing with mental illness the whole time. but that is hindsight. i don't follow rules well, never have and probably never will. oh well.
it is here now.
if you want a cell phone you get a cap even with 'unlimited' access there is a fee for using tethering as they want that phone id. and most people are pissy about uing cell bandwith and always nag for the wifi password on the broadband in houses. not to mention microsoft just recalled a 6 gb windows 8.1 upgrade from windows 8. i recently got a new computer and i downloaded 600 mb of pre or full install software to make the computer usable plus i redownloaded my meager 4 steam games for a total of well over 20 gigabytes. plus i watched a few movies streaming... and then there are the blizzard games which spent about 90 minutes torrenting all the software behind it's games. the isps get it people can legally use all the highspeed internet and they are uncomfortable about letting people use equipment how they want to.
the real killer app i've heard of for gaming rigs is making realtime special effects for movies and tvs. other than that there is news departments where thin clients can take advantage of a gpu assited server to run as many displays as the hardware can handle.
then there is wallstreet where a cuda assisted computer can model market dynamics in real time, there are a lot of superfast computers on stock exchanges. so there you go. 3 reasons for gpus to go as far as technology will allow.
we now have 6 devices on wifi here good router info would be good... i will research a bit myself but i want to know a good one that has a long range it is not ok to log me off just because i walk to the other end of the house..
