... and I don't even use it.
Yea, but that's pretty standard these days, as is the "You're not allowed to publish bad things about us, or say them in public." clause.
Yea that's fair. I omitted "automatic Windows updates" too, but you can stuff a lot under the bucket of #8.
Its a limit really easy to hit if you do 3 or more of the following things:
1) run Steam on multiple systems and own lots of games that are all currently installed, and keep them constantly updated
2) run Linux distros such as Debian Unstable (sid) on multiple systems and don't use a apt-cacher type proxy, but keep them constantly updated
3) frequently use Netflix streaming
4) frequently use DirecTV OnDemand services
5) own any relatively recent gaming console (ps3, ps4, wii-u, xbox360, xboxone) and own a lot of games and keep it constantly updated
6) listen to streaming music all day long
7) have more than one recent Blizzard game installed (Diablo III, Starcraft II, World of Warcraft) and keep them constantly updated, especially around expansion release times
8) have a home office
Unlikely. Price out your cable bill compared to your water or gas bill.
This is seriously shit your CS 100 or 200-level teacher SHOULD have taught you, if you got a CS degree. I think it may depend largely upon where/when you got your degree though. They're only all the same on paper.
I think that's the definition of the difference between being "paranoid" and being "observant."
He's assuming the energy required to create the building and equipment that made up the factory that made the solar panel is included in the solar panel's cost, and that they only sold one solar panel before going out of business. In a practical sense, he may be more right than wrong, but its definitely a contrived argument.
I choose the side of NOT systemd. I was not terribly impressed with upstart either. While we're at it, some may find it tangential at best, but I am also fundamentally opposed to pulseaudio. Linux has a lot of problems barring its universal adoption for both the desktop and the server market, but all of these things share the dubious quality of possibly theoretically solving a few niche annoyances (that can mostly also be labeled "user error" or "suboptimal default configuration") by sacrificing decades of tried-and-true field-tested methodologies, all the while introducing a whole slew of their own.
I hear a few sane distros are holding their ground in this regard. Slackware, Gentoo, maybe? Can anyone improve upon this list for me? I think its time the distros who sympathize actively with the "old guard" methodologies step forward and get more public about it. Many of us will be desperate to find a lifeboat, soon. I really was shocked to find out Debian was amongst the ones that "drank the koolaid."
Just FYI; you don't catch tuberculosis by petting them.
She told me she was a mermaid!!
Its called "setting a bad example." This got my little sister out of trouble almost every single time.
Sigh, but now that I test a few other videos I'd tested before there are some ads now, so I guess i'm just wrong and they simply originally didn't have ads. Nevermind me, sorry.
