Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
We've improved Slashdot's video section; now you can view our video interviews, product close-ups and site visits with all the usual Slashdot options to comment, share, etc. No more walled garden! It's a work in progress -- we hope you'll check it out (Learn more about the recent updates).
The internet is in production. No one wants to touch anything that's already in production unless they literally can't make it any worse.
Otherwise we would have IPv6 as well.
Is the target not a zfs filesystem as well? If so zfs send/recv allows for replication and handles deltas at the filesystem level. It should be more efficient.
Considering this is the country that put melamine in milk and cadmium in toys, this speaks volumes.
I would like to know their official justification.
You actually believe that such a fence would keep people out?
Great Wall of China... Mongols. I rest my case.
actually you do pay the foreign carriers, it's in the postage you have to buy for the letter.
I hate to sound elitist, but if we charged more for the internet maybe it would keep inbred users to a minimum.
People doing things that benefit themselves is the very definition of capitalism.
Perhaps you're thinking of Asshole Anarchy.
Central characteristics of capitalism include capital accumulation, competitive markets and wage labor. In a capitalist economy, the parties to a transaction typically determine the prices at which assets, goods, and services are exchanged.
Writing legislation to intervene with the free portion of a free market is the opposite of a capitalism. I would like to benefit myself by using the government sanctioned cable under the ground to create my own ISP. Now go write that into law.
I was going to mention that but I know how much "a certain demographic" shits a brick if you stomp on their circle-jerk. Much like lower IQ animals, if I don't actually say trigger words then they won't clue in. Unfortunately, you did, and now you're getting voted down (as of now).
Communism is just one extreme and and neither extreme is the answer. Just don't mention the S-word around animals that have been "conditioned" by their masters.
For now I'm going for a W-A-L-K.
There is no such thing as death panels. It is just the insurance company working in "mysterious ways". That out has been working for god since the beginning of time and he gets away with starving children and gruesome deaths of innocent people by the hundreds.
You trade pre-existing support now for death panels later. Have fun. I hope you have a big appetite, because I have a feeling you're going to be eating those words about your "new and improved" healthcare in a few short years.
Ditto for net neutrality should sheep like you have your way.
This is why NEW ideas have such a hard time gaining traction. Save for the fact this isn't a NEW idea. It has been implemented successfully in basically all other modern industrial nations. This is like arguing the superiority of communism after the fall of communism (hopefully the irony of that example sets off the trolls, hahahha).
> Essentially ALL doors made nowadays have a cardboard core.
All doors that poor people buy, that is. Quality is still out there, and as available as it always was, you just have to be willing to pay for it.
This is an internal door, it's not like it needs to be sturdy. Then I realized: the only time you would need a solid oak door for a bathroom.... is the little boys room at the Vatican. (I'll be here all week folks!)
Here is the actual bug and arguement: https://bugs.freedesktop.org/s...
some people have expensive hardware that only works with xp and its NOT practical to rebuy working hardware
Old hardware as in systems without support contracts? Or old hardware with no available parts?
So you just wait until the hardware fails AND THEN scramble to get the services back online? Doesn't sound very proactive to me.
Worst case scenario is to virtualize the system and use IO Passthrough for any proprietary cards. But hardware availability should not be a limitation because hardware fails.
This should not have to be explained. Maybe I got trolled.
Physical money isn't used very much even in real life. Less than 5% of US dollars are represented as cash/coins. It is mostly a ledger at a bank (bank account) and the banks are regulated and trusted entities not to cheat or tamper with the ledger (bank accounts).***
If you start with debit/credit cards as your model then Bitcoin is nothing more than a decentralized version of this.
Or another way to put it. If you were really poor and had no physical money. You could pay someone in an IOU and write it in a ledger. That person can pay you back in an IOU as well, but part of the IOUs would cancel out. No money ever changes hands because it never existed. It was just a ledger recording who owed who what.
This explains everything:
