When can I get with equipped with a friggin laser?
"Yes." History is littered with humans that cares more about money than fellow human beings. And you think human is somehow going to act any different because it is dealing with another non-human creature?
It's a government project. They'll need to solicit bids from at least six distinct vendors, gets cancelled and reinstated at least twice due to budgetary constraints, gets monumentally fscked up by the contractor in China because they can't read English and only write in Engrish, and gets into massive cost overrun because their accounting do their maths extremely well, tied up in committees for months over if the wording in the contract required a period instead of comma, then finally deployed, and discover it's still broken.
My guess is that the good governor thinks AD&D players are Satan worshipers anyways...
" It just so happens that google glasses here is only MOSTLY dead. There's a big difference between mostly dead and all dead. Mostly dead is slightly alive. With all dead, well, with all dead there's usually only one thing you can do..."

My wife and I haven't had cable TV in years, instead relying entirely on Netflix, other streaming sites, and hard copies we've bought over the years. Having just finished ripping our entire media collection (CDs, DVDs, and even our Vinyls and VHS with the help of a capture card and some sweet digital voodoo) to a couple HDDs, I'm feeling froggy. Up until now we've been using WDTV Live, and it's been pretty snazzy, but I want to upgrade to a dedicated media machine instead of piggybacking off of my office computer. It'll be a Windows based machine utilizing Plex, and it's going in the crawlspace of the house.
The crawlspace in question is unfinished, but I do have a dry concrete slab down there where I can put/mount/assemble something. Cooling won't be an issue obviously, and I am keeping a close eye on hardware specs with regards to moisture. It is still a crawlspace though...
My Question(s) being:
* What would be a good setup to to house the hardware? Priorities being to safeguard against moisture, vermin, and dirt.
— Modified PC Tower?
— Build an enclosure?
— Something I haven't considered?
Please assume I'm stubborn and absolutely dead-set on putting it in the crawlspace to avoid the discussion devolving into the "best" place to put a media machine. Any advice or ideas are very much appreciated, Thank you

Now I call _THIS_ a colossal negative space wedgie!
Most egregiously, many media outlets continue to report that Mars One received applications from 200,000 people who would be happy to die on another planet?—?when the number it actually received was 2,761.
As [finalist Joseph] Roche observed the process from an insider’s perspective, his concerns increased. Chief among them: that some leading contenders for the mission had bought their way into that position, and are being encouraged to “donate” any appearance fees back to Mars One?—?which seemed to him very strange for an outfit that needs billions of dollars to complete its objective. “When you join the ‘Mars One Community,’ which happens automatically if you applied as a candidate, they start giving you points,” Roche explained to me in an email. “You get points for getting through each round of the selection process (but just an arbitrary number of points, not anything to do with ranking), and then the only way to get more points is to buy merchandise from Mars One or to donate money to them.”
There’s more at the link. Essentially, the whole operation has apparently devolved into a petty scam to milk money from the finalists themselves."
