BTW, thanks to OP for sharing this. I don't think I'd ever heard of Jerrie Cobb before today. I did, however, immediately reflect on one of her peers, Pancho Barnes, who probably taught several hundred pilots of the Mercury 7 generation to fly.
It's part of a paid smear campaign, intended to establish a belief that Linux is difficult and unreliable. Have you noticed how every discussion about Linux/Foss on Slashdot is centered on these weird corner-cases that almost nobody in the real world ever sees?
Well... in this case, not so much. When it comes to audio support the linux landscape is a minefield of poorly documented, often unstable crap with poor interoperability. In other words, most of it is shit. None of it works well without considerable tweaking, after spending far to much time and effort running down solutions in those support forums. Don't get me wrong. I make my living running linux boxen. I am also a semi-serious audiophile and would love to use linux in that pursuit as well. Can't do it.
Cultures are different. East is East, West is West.
Yes, but rational behavior transcends culture, does it not? What possible rational reason could an adult have for denying that which is patently obvious to anyone who cares to look?
You keep using that word. I do not think that it means what you think it means. More to the point, the income inequality issue exists, independent of your personal definition of capitalism, or the word "less".
I have a perfect, 100% effective solution to this problem: I don't, and never have used 'The Cloud' in the first place. It's a stupid concept, it's poor data security, it's a waste of money, and you're asking for trouble if you use it. Store your data some other way that you have 100% control over, don't let complete strangers do it for you.
I beg to differ. We use cloud storage to keep copies of some very important documents (compliance requirements) that are central to several business processes. One copy we store locally, and the other we store in the cloud. Both are encrypted before storage so the security question is meaningless. You could lift all those files, from either location, and have nothing without the key. What's not meaningless is the savings we gain by using the cloud for that backup copy. Duplicating that store, including the geography, using hardware we own is certainly possible, but nowhere near as cost effective.
I find that local backups are better than cloud backups. I have a 1TB external hard drive that's nearly filled up.
What you have described is not a backup. It's a copy, a copy which is sitting right next to your original; subject to most of the same threats as the original. I wish you luck.
I hate hardware and for all intents and purposes it can go shove itself up its own ass. As a result I very much love the cloud, no matter how much of a buzzword it is. Let someone else worry about the tedious busywork it is to get one piece of hardware to talk to another. Oh what's that? A disk died? I don't give a damn because I don't have to drive 30 minutes each direction just to change it. Ha!
You aren't encumbered by any compliance regulations, are you. Just sayin'...
