I have several SATA to IDE adapters with card, and my experience reading has been miserable. Better off if you can find an old external case, or best to cable it up like described above.

Exactly. The sub itself is a stealth ship, that is why it was created, purely as a stealth device.
The fuckwads are the elected officials that are allowing drones to fly over your house. Those that trade liberty for security deserve neither.
Everyone knows that the military airplane became obsolete once radar was invented. Same thing here. Must be true....
Cat and mouse, as always. Stealth subs aren't a new idea (go watch Red October, one of my all time favs) and we have only scratched the surface in that area. Even in the 80s when I was in the air force, the Navy was considered the strongest leg of the Triad. That isn't likely to change soon, although the technology they use certainly will.
I was about to say that if you are in an area where it is acceptable to use shotguns (300ft from a home, in the county is the rule in NC) then yes, excellent target practice. I keep the shorter military/police grade buckshot in my combat shotgun, holds around 9 or 10 shells. But in all seriousness, these will be getting shot down, as not everyone cares what the law is, and will just pull out a gun and shoot it down even if they live in the city.
And they can't afford $500 for a phone or $800 on a game console but they still do. $1000 is within reach of enough people to be called "consumer grade". That doesn't mean everyone can afford it. Not everyone can even afford a computer, but we still consider them consumer goods.
That was my thinking. Maybe we have giant silos of cacao, and those are dwindling, although I lack the imagination to think this is literally true. The whole premise looks like a reason to raise prices and profits.
If the world is eating more chocolate, it means the world is getting richer. Not many in China would be eating chocolate regularly 20 years ago, Same could be said of other areas.
Regardless, the math doesn't add up, particularly the future estimations of us consuming a million tons more than we make. The only place you see that kind of math is typically in the Ministry of Truth.
Lead acid batteries can produce hydrogen gas. Not sure what nicads do, except for "very little".
Exactly. This is the probably the best and least error prone book I know about his life. I've read it more than twice.
I gave up spray deodorant and switched to stick years ago, simply because I didn't want to be inhaling aluminum chlorohydrate and other goodies. That it isn't good for the environment is secondary to that.
I agree that smaller government isn't "the" answer, but smaller is easier to keep an eye on, and much of the "smaller" means that things instead get shifted to the state or local level. Frankly, I like that, because I can easily go downtown, or easy enough to the state capital, but when D.C. is in charge, there is zero chance of being heard. I would rather be a tiny voice here in NC than a non-existent one in DC.
So you are saying only rich people should be able to break the rules? Do you have any fucking idea how patently offensive and elitist your comment is?
But this is one of the few times when the article is actually more interesting than the comments here. Worth reading, even if that is breaking the unwritten rules around here.
That is right. I was in during the middle 80s when it existed, but was still rare.
No, it was called a Senior Airman. Very few Sr.Amn went to NCO school and took the rank of buck sgt. before just going for staff, so the majority of E4s were Airman tier, not NCO tier. Sr. Amn and Buck paid the same, both being E4, with the only difference being NCO school and tier, plus some advantages (priority) if you wanted to separate rats and quarters and were single. Oh, and the star on your sleeve was silver instead of blue, although that isn't a perk, just an indication you were an NCO.
Note that most of the "exceptional" airmen back then would simply go below the zone (make E5/Staff Sgt. in less than 4 years) rather than seek buck sgt. Bucks were fairly rare for a variety of reasons, including the above.
Yes, I was in the Air Force. So was most of my family.
