These things are going to need some sortof centralized control, anyways. That's what stuff like nest, etc are for. That one thing should have the webserver, etc. None of the other devices should, at all.The other devices should be very simple and dumb send data/receive data. I don't need my thermostat to have 32MB of RAM to receive a signal that says "As soon as you register 72F or lower from all sensors, stop the AC and not kick back on until 76F is shown on all sensors."

DNS should not be necessary for devices that aren't going to run web servers.

You can have a limited TCP/IP stack with defined functions specifically for the device, IoTs aren't trying to serve webpages, they're trying to get quick 4KB data packets with the info they need telling them to do something, or they're sending out the packets. You don't need a server, a simple daemon would do the same job.

You don't need Zeroconfig. That in itself is a shit security weakness.

Security protocols are not necessary if you keep the TCP/IP stack simple and hard-bake in what is allowed to connect to what.

That is bullshit. Turning off AHCI just forces SATA into typical IDE mode, and you lose hot-swap and NCQ among other things. The system should boot just fine. If it doesn't, you've got a fucked system and even out of warranty the seriousness of the defect is such that it should still trigger a recall.

Download Zandronum. Install. Load up Doomseeker. Point it to the Zandronum executable in the config menu. Point it to your Doom and Doom 2 WAD files in another option to the left of that menu. Set your server filter to cooperative and invasion and Deathmatch servers. Enjoy some of the newest and most awesome mods for doom to come out. Brutal Doom, Shotgun Frenzy, Master of Puppets, Complex Doom, Bosses From Hell, Samsara, Survivalism, Stronghold, RGA, it's a fucking dream.

Don't forget to use the OpenGL rendering so you can mouselook straight up and down. You can set that inside the game, but requires a restart.

You must be new to this. Acetone, being 100% volatile, goes away cleanly. Perfect for whole-extract cannabinoids.

Supercritical CO2 is not expensive. Not by any means. You can get it dirt cheap at paintball stores.

Alcohol and water is not a problem when you still have to do far less heat-purging versus butane/propane/hexane.

>doesn't know greentext arrows are implications of joking humor.

Yup, really new to this.
