Comment Re:Limited unlimited (Score 2) 228

I'm going to make them hurt for this. I normally use right at about 400 to 450 GB a month. They charge me $30 for that. I actually try to keep my data usage under control and stay close to my 300 GB limit.

Since Comcast is determined to squeeze me. I will pay the extra $30 for the unlimited usage but I'm going to use it. I will have to use at least 450 GB a month to make it worth it. So every month I will use at least 450GB, and I'm going to attempt to double it just for spite. Being a vindictive jack ass that I am.

For starters you would never see my fat ass again. I would never post another thing to /.. My ass would be laying on some beach somewhere with some bronze honey fanning me with one of those palm leaves and other serving me cold drinks out of a coconut cup.

Some people say, "if I ever get rich I won't quit work." Screw that, may ass would be out of here. It would be the last thing you ever saw of me as I ran out the door.

This is exactly the damn problem. You want to solve the problem between the police and the community they "protect and server?" Take them out of the god damn cars and put them back walking a beat.

When you have the same cops walking the same beats in the same neighbourhoods, they stop becoming outsiders and start becoming part of the neighbourhood. People know then and start to trust them. They are not some random stranger that rolls up in the 'hood and starts shouting orders.

Horse hocky. My Nexis 7 rolled over and died a few weeks ago so I had to scare up a replacement tablet. I choose Asus Z580C to replace it. This tablet has a intel atom Z3530 processor in it, which I found out later is a x86 based processor.

I've had it for 2 weeks now and I've very pleased with it. To say the x86 can't be used well in a mobile processor is grade a bullshit.

If you read the article it was clear he planed to show if the permit was granted. Since it wasn't granted because he was going to show he decided to phone it in. Which lead to the police rushing in and shutting it down.

If he didn't plan to show up in the first place then granting the permit or not to grant the permit would have been a moot point. No felon rapper, no reason not to grant the permit.

The city should have never used a permit issue to force this concert to close. It was rap, I'm sure there where several nose ordnances on the books to cover it.

If the city was smart they should have issued the permit to let this felon come, then arrested him when he got in the city.

I kind of got that feeling too. I installed a Server 2003 on a number of systems. I had to smack it around a little and in some cases get creative with some drivers once that was done it worked well.

One of the more interesting was installing it on a Dell business laptop. I couldn't find dedicated drivers for xp-64 for this system. I noticed the laptop used the same network chips as the servers we used. I downloaded that driver package, installed it, and it worked.

And this boys and girls is why I build my own rigs. Every processor and RAM sim lovingly selected from the newegg buffet. No shitty components or lackadaisical hardware from unknown vendors. Just everything I select is from known vendors with reliable parts.

Even the OS is from a OEM disk. No bloatware/crapware/or shitware.

So if you game on it or just smoke it, nothing beats hand rolled, at home with love.

Comment Re:Always backup your data to a different machine! (Score 1) 297

Very good points.

A) Yes, I do grab folders that I think need to be backed up right there and then, and drag them over to the external drive. I also don't have it scripted but I do have a backup routine. Sunday night I rsync everything with an external usb drive. I used to have it scripted but that would require me to keep the usb drive plugged in all the time. With rise this encrypted maelware and shit I decided that it was better to keep my backups completely off line. B) Yes, I think we can safely say I know more than the author.

That is basically what I do. I copy over all the important files and my data to a external HD. I have used automatic backup systems and bare metal recovery options in the past. To me they have never been worth the trouble. Seems like every time I try to recover from one of these something isn't comparable or something is missing like a driver.

To me its just easier to reinstall and copy over the data from backup once I replace the drive.
