If the taxes payed are 3.8B and they had a net income of 18B, that means they gained at least 21.8B, which means that their taxes is at most 17.6%. If only I could incorporate myself..

2 of my friends bought 40" 4K samsung tvs (hu7000) on black friday for around $600. I find that the size is just perfect, coming from multiple 30" 2560x1600. The colors were a bit off, but it had not been calibrated. The intensity was adjustable to a working range, and playing Battlefield 4 on it was fast enough to finish 1st on a 64 people pistols only hardcore server
I made it close to two hours once, while working at the same time. I speak french and they don`t speak it very well thus it was perhaps easier than you to keep them hooked up. He was quite angry when he understood he had been played all along. I hoped that saved a few people from getting caught by that scheme!
In my case I own servers at different locations. I can test my speed by downloading random and compressed data from them.
You just removed more than 375 bits of entropy of your pass phrase!
That speedtest is broken. It uses too much CPU even on a i5-4570K to be able to measure a 30mbps line correctly. One of the cores is at 100% while the test run and it has trouble refreshing the images and the download speed goes down. Anyway.
Years ago, I had a version of a webgame ad supported (you could pay to get rid of them and get non-game-modifying perks
One of the solution was not to display ads to players who would exhibit this behavior (false positive are much more costly when you ban a real user than simply not showing them ads) so yeah, this solution can work ( and people can do it manually by visiting ads that would pay based on the percentage of successful follow up and just leaving it waste it's time in another tab)
Isn't the optimal solution just to kill each and every of the prisoner that comes into your prison
My USB 2 sticks do something in the range 12-15MB/s
30 * 15MB/s would be 450MB, which is close to an SSD speed. And we don`t know if the bottleneck is the memory, the controller or the bus/drivers. I was mostly showing that it will be possible to reach that price and that the current value of the memory itself is already close while the parent was saying that SSD will never reach price parity with HDD.
I could also have pointed out that in the last 3 years HDD prices have mostly stagnated while SSD prices went down very fast for even better performances. I guess we will see!
> There's no way that SSD is gonna come even remotely close in price.
In which timeline ? I've seen USB 2.0 128GB flash drive offered for 10$ for black friday. That`s 3.8TB of flash memory and tons of redundant parts for 300$. I gather it will not be `too long` before it's not worth it anymore to buy spinning drives.
I would disagree with that. Look at antibiotics. It`s not present in everyday's bacterial environment. A single event (high dosage of antibiotics) wipes out most of the population, yet some survive, and rare case some evolves to resiste them. And now we are getting stucks with bacterial agents that survive a lot of our antibiotics. why could not it work that way for those too ?
How did you get 99% with a sample of one ??
I've been on the receiving side of death threats (and rape threat & imprisonment threats & more) a few times by those guys who purports to be an important (varying) company that has detected virus / illicit material / whatever being sent from your computer when I tell them I know what they are trying to do and there's no way I'm gonna pay them and to just stop calling... I once tried reporting them to the police (at each level) and the answer was simply that there`s nothing they can do and they won`t even take more information on it. Why would it be different in her case ?
About 20 miles from the closest metro area. The closest village (5k population), to which I belong, is 6 miles further.
In 2008 I organized a few people living nearby and I to request a commercial cable service to the principal provider in the area. I knew that when they received such request in the same area they had to act on it. The minimum service level agreement was for 3 years at 8mbps for 80$, thus the few of us who had to take the commercial service split the bills with the others who then were able to get their own service on it. Once the contract ended, we all moved to the better offerings which are using this line to serve us. The best out of it is that so far I've had 5 referrals, and if I get to 10 I will get a lifetime free subscription to my current service level. I`ll see if I can make it!
