Didn't Superman have to break the laws of physics and fly back in time to stop hydro?
So your suggestion is what, that we just stop using electricity? You don't like nuclear, you don't like solar, you probably hate wind and hydro too.
Buffalo is a six hour drive from this nuke plant.
If the Earth's surface is flat, what good is an airplane?
My T60 is SATA, fortunately, or else I probably wouldn't have even thought to look for PATA SSDs.
The SSD cost me nothing - it was a hand-me-down from my desktop, which got a larger SSD. It's pretty easy to find smaller-capacity SSDs for cheap or even free if you keep an eye out. This one is 60GB and I'm using less than 10% even after Dropbox finished syncing everything.
In place of.
I had a 7200 RPM WD Scorpio Black drive in the T60 before I changed it to the SSD. The SSD is about 3 years old and is a hand-me-down from my desktop, which I just upgraded to a larger SSD.
You just need Chrome (not Chromium). Here are the directions I followed:
I think it's less than Linux runs the video better and more than there's less *other stuff* trying for resources. Netflix ran fan if I made the window just a bit smaller than full screen, but at full screen, the audio and video would start to fall out of sync after about 10 minutes - haven't had that issue at all with LXLE even at fullscreen. Best as I can tell, it's because Netflix tries to rape my CPU and LXLE seems to have a little less overhead than Windows 7 did... just enough to give Chrome/Netflix the power it needs to play the video.
I just put a SSD in my 9 year old ThinkPad T60 and took that as an opportunity to switch from Windows 7 to LXLE (Lubuntu based) on it. It *flies* now and I can actually watch Netflix on it fullscreen - it pegs the CPU pretty hard but doesn't get A/V sync issues like it did on Windows. It has 2.5GB RAM, but I've yet to use half that even with quite a few tabs open in Chrome (not Chromium). The only other things I have installed are Dropbox, Remmina (RDP client) and an IMAP client. I can't imagine ChromeOS being much more polished than LXLE with a few defaults - the only major difference being that Chrome had a few hiccups to get it installed, but nothing I couldn't figure out in five minutes with Google... not bad considering I don't have a whole lot of Linux experience.
"Looks like about 20k per job. Probably 100k paying jobs..."
20k per quarter per employee is going to come out to around $40-$50k salaries. Not horrible, but considering their target is college graduates, it's not exactly something special.
Their fair share is obviously whatever things cost and I don't feel like paying for myself.
> "Where did you get the idea that it had been running for just a quarter of a year?"
From the quote in the summary of the economic adviser defending it:
"The low numbers didn't stop some state officials from defending the initiative. "Given the program was only up and running for basically one quarter of a year," Andrew Kennedy, a senior economic development aide to Governor Cuomo, told Capital New York, "I think 80 jobs is a good number that we can stand behind.""
Most five year olds choose to watch cartoons over live-action movies as well.
