So thats like..almost 700 movies? I dont think I've watched even half that many in my entire life.. Not telling people what to do by any means but I do think some people are becoming digital pack rats / digital hoarders. Perhaps that is a new category needing intervention by social services!
No supervision? Then its the fucking parents fault. Did they not give the password in the first place? How about parents take some responsibility for knowing what their kids are doing and how payment systems work before handing over the keys.
There are many > 1TB tape back up systems, many with very high speeds, assuming you can feed it data fast enough.
I have to wonder though.. 20TB for a single person? I'm not gonna do the math but that sounds like so much stuff to be impossible to listen/watch all of it.
But at least he has proven once again, RAID is not a backup. RAID will merrily do what ever you wish, including copying drive corruption.
you're a pussy. use freakin ALGOL
Facebook does not want to be hounded by the anti-gun/do-it-for-the-children/omfg-i'm-scared lobby.
"1) How is ITER going to succeed if one of its major contributors pulls out?"
The US pays about 10%. Guess they'll have to find a way to make it less of a boondoggle?
"2) Are there any domestic programs with a better chance of success and a more concrete plan? (I'm not aware of any.)"
Given that ITER uses the same tired methods that have been worked on a very long time, I'd say yes all the alternatives have just as good a chance and for far less money.
BTW: The largest constraint on SUSY partner masses does not come from the $9bn LHC, but from the ACME collaboration's measurement of the electron electric dipole moment, a $6M tabletop atomic physics experiment.
Gasp! You mean maybe, just maybe, CERN might want to hold off on those grandiose plans for a bigger, better LHC and think if it might be able to toss that cash around and get better bang for the..um..Euro?
"it might be time to start hammering in those coffin nails."
Quite clearly you are a SUSY denier. Have you not seen the models? The many papers? To deny the existence of SUSY is to deny all but certain fact! And do not resort to quoting LHC "results" as that is just chery picking from the very large parameter space SUSY occupies!
Dude I want to drive my car 100 mph on the highway but the governments deny me the right to use my car freely. You have no inherent "right" to use a product in any way other than that intended by the manufacturer. If you can, well happy days for you. If you (or others) don't like that a certain product is "closed" then get off your ass, get funding and make an alternative and stop whining about it. It is not the fault of the company if they say "uses xyz replacement parts" and you fail to check to see if you can use "abc replacement parts" instead. That is down to your bad buying decision.
and give the money to our own domestic fusion researchers. If ITER ultimately leads the way to a marketable fusion reactor I am sure we can either licenses the tech or let foreigners build the plants - far cheaper for the tax payer while supporting our own alternative research.
You subscribe to the currently common delusion that an "OS" is a graphical shell and userland toys.
" restrictions that should not exist"
restrictions that should not exist because you do not like them?
Let another maker of coffee machines market themself as "universal" and the GMCR machine as 'outrageous'. Nobody is forcing you to buy either. You will live another day without a single serve automated coffee making machine. If GMCR succeeds, welll good for them. If they fail, good for the other guys.
Purity.. but not to be confused with POE
And that just it - people should stop whining about 'anticompetitive' this and that. Consumers will deicde. Are they willing to put up with the reduced and/or more expensive choice of coffees? If not, word will get around pretty quickly and it will die a miserable death.
while i do have a couple old ones floating around some where, I have not used a linux cd for anything to do with windows since XP.
