I lifted it from "The ABC Book" by Dr. Seuss.
Security + Telnet = My Brain Hurts
You might be disappointed if you tried to run the full-power desktop ARM from the pre-Apple era in your mobile device!
Unless my history is rusty, Newton begat the ARM chip that we all know so well.
None of the services listed are open source, so that is a red herring. Open source isn't even particularly important here, because your data isn't locked into any kind of a format - you can switch freely to any service at any time, and you have a complete copy of your data at all times. If you really need open source, there are options which require a server: SparkleShare works well for me, and I understand that OwnCloud has something that works decently as well.
My problem with the service is that it works poorly in a mixed-computing environment. It loses xattr between Mac and Windows (and probably Linux). It has some pretty bad behavior when faced with a filename that only differs due to case.
I was just arguing that this is pointless. When I traveled to Israel, I requested that my visa be stamped on a removable sheet of paper to be stapled into my passport. I did this because I didn't want evidence of a trip to Israel when one of my next stops was Malaysia. If someone is trying to get from Liberia to the US, they will do so with no evidence of recently having been in Liberia.
It's not as if there are huge numbers of flights to and from Liberia.
Lesson: don't go to a shitty community hospital for anything except a broken arm.
I have no idea what your agenda is. I'm not the one arguing that military ships are "easy". If you think that America's military shipyards are on anywhere near a war footing, or for that matter operating in a manner that would be competitive on the world private markets then you are delusional. They do a fine job of their goal, which is to keep America's ability to produce such weapons alive - a goal which I agree with. Their secondary goal of keeping the fleet fresh is also successful, but let's face it - that goal could be done for considerably less money if we did not insist on building them domestically.
The Korean shipyard is competitive on the world private market, but would probably put out a pretty piss-poor nuclear submarine. They currently operate German diesel-electrics. Daewoo builds them in Korea, but to your point it takes 4 years or so - not anything like the few months one of these cargo ships take.
It's probably true, or based on something true. A lot of those old processes were very dependent on the mix of impurities at a certain location... you could only make [sword/knife/dagger] using an ore from [some hill/bluff/valley]. They didn't know that at the time, or if they did they had no idea why.
Then indeed that sounds like a low salary. Except that those states without pensions also tend to have low costs of living, so what do I know?
I didn't say there was "sloth". But they run 1 shift and quite literally build them as slowly as is feasible. We don't need the number that they are turning out, but we do need the skill set and facilities.
Depending on where you are employed, government jobs also give you a pension that would be worth around $1 million if you had to buy it as an annuity.
I assumed a retirement age of 55 after working for 30 years to get your full pension. I assumed your salary would not increase over time and that the annuity would track cost-of-living. I assumed half-salary upon retirement, for life, with a spousal benefit upon your death. These assumptions are very conservative and probably seriously understate the real value of the pension, especially if it includes a health benefit.
Wow, cool site. Check out the column from 1939, which is the year Germany invaded Poland, to 1945 when the war ended:
Battleships: 15 to 23 (not amazing, but still impressive given their utility to expense ratio)
Carriers: 5 to 99
Cruisers: 36 to 72
Destroyers: 127 to 377
Frigates: 0 to 361
Subs: 58 to 232
And that is while taking losses the whole time!
Interesting that the 80s re-activation of the old WW2 Iowa-class battleships does not seem to be reflected in your data.
This is exactly right, and is why the US continues to build new nuclear subs at the slowest... possible... rate...
If you are a business, you want your capital returned as soon as possible. If you are a peacetime military, you just want to retain capability in the cheapest possible way. Totally different goals. During WW2, you saw the goals of industry and the military align, and it was kind of breathtaking.
