Serious question: What's the best way to handle video on the web given a few requirements? First, the content needs to be hosted on the same site as the website. Why? Because sites like Youtube and Vimeo have control over it. They can unilaterally decide to take something down. They will also present related video. For someone trying to market product, you shouldn't make it easy for a prospective customer to find your competitors. Second, the video has to work on both Macs and PCs. Third, the video has to work on Internet Explorer as early as v.8 because too many users don't know any better.
This ranks right up there with the dedicated chicken nuggets button on some ovens.
This is my shocked face:
The FAA hasn't issued any "rule" only a policy guideline which is unenforceable. Most people don't know that and the FAA is counting on intimidation to do their dirty work for them.
That seems completely arbitrary.
Or maybe the entire premise that there is millions of tons of plastic in the ocean was bullsh*t fearmongering.
Show us ALL the data and ALL the methodology.
And so was George Carlin when he said "You nail two piece of wood together that have never been nailed together before and some schmuck will buy it from you."
Green energy is on a lot of people's minds in far more a religious way than a practical one. A lot of people believe in global warming...I mean global climate change...I mean global climate disruption so much that they will buy anything to satisfy their need to continue believing it in the same way that people keep buying the latest fads in diet and exercise products. I'll make a prediction: in about 4 years, solar power will fade away once the subsidies disappear and people find out that it's really not cost effective if they have to pay for the whole thing.
That's a nice write-up. I tend to question the long-term outcomes of things that have no track record to back them up. What happens if the subsidies get reduced or eliminated by future Congresses?
I wouldn't even consider leasing them because if it benefited the customer, the solar companies wouldn't do it.
So with an outright purchase, the ROI doesn't seem to be there.
I've played around with a few ROI calculators and thus far it appears that I wouldn't break even for 17 years. That's a pretty lousy return on investment particularly if the cells only have a 20 year life. And the performance degrades over time. These calculators don't seem to take that into account.
One day, I decided to go program in the great outdoors so I drove up to the cliffs of Palos Verdes, CA overlooking the ocean. That day I was working on a tool for simulating flocking behavior. As I was testing it out, bees decided to swarm.
Will these puppies also have some form of GPS in them? Not only will they know what filth you are posting but they'll know where you posted it from.
