Are you kidding me?! Who's in charge over there, a 12yr old? "If you don't give me more money, I'm going to continue to collect all this PII and not store it in a secure manner".
I don't have a problem with the fact that you might have to work at Starbucks after getting an art history degree.
You seem well-intentioned, but I think if you were to tell that to the guy behind the counter, there's a chance he'd snap. No amount of latte art would make him feel better about his choices.
Am I the only one who thinks about this whenever the doctor's office requires a signature that says they can disclose information with certain third parties?
I mean, it's not like they're sharing my info with some sleazy marketing company (right??). Regardless, I usually freeze up a bit at the front desk and wonder "WTF does this entitle you to do??!".
Probably doesn't hurt to regularly update one's host file with a blacklist. The one I've been using is this:
And it will appear as a new line item on our bills... albeit heavily redacted.
The interface is half the story; the controller must be able to take advantage of its bandwidth. Dell is vague about the performance of the SSDs it sells with the M3800. I'm assuming they're the older ones that top out at ~500 MBps read/write. Newer SSDs can easily double that.
I believe the Dell M4800 compares more with the W540, including support for 32GB.
It's a decent refresh of the M3800 model, but I think I will hold out for a Skylake model with a PCIe SSD. Fall timeframe sounds about right.
How long can a lithium ion powered drone stay in the air?
If the drone is a hydrogen filled dirigible then I'm betting quite a while.
Start with a Tesla Model S chassis and mount one of those Tea Cups you find in amusement parks. That would be interesting.
Or someone is running low on funding.
Any chance the topology of space-time can vary independently of gravity?
Despite its flaws, let's use the rubber sheet analogy. Except in this case, suppose there are two rubber sheets: one atop another. Say ordinary matter (planets, stars, etc.) indent the top sheet as expected, but only black holes can over-extend the first sheet and influence the shape of the second underlying sheet.
Now suppose this second sheet deforms over greater distances than the first, which in turn influences the shape of the top sheet overlaying it.
It's not inexpensive, but poorer places than California are interested in it.
