Oh come on, this totally has the Emporer's grubby little fingers all over it. I mean, his Sardaukar have been spotted all over Arrakeen!
He wasn't formerly let go until yesterday however. That's when the BBC declined to renew Jeremy's contract.
It's really not that hard to mandate it as a paid holiday...
It's a 1500VA unit. Which I believe is something like 865W? Only cost me $150 on sale. Powers my i5 2500K rig with dual GTX780s in SLI plus many SSDs, harddrives, and whatnot. And the two monitors And cablemodem+router+VOIP box Plus Klipsch Promedia 5.1 Ultra speakers. PowerChute indicates that the UPS is never above 50% load max.
I'm late to reply, but I know that on my APC 1500VA UPS that I have my PC and router/cable modem on, I also elected to install the PowerChute software on my computer. PowerChute will regularly test the UPS on it's own, and will test battery health and report that to me as well occasionally. I did have it finally just warn me once that the battery condition is getting low enough to replace the battery. I will be doing that soon.
If you don't have it plugged into a dedicated UPS, you REALLY should be going out to get one. No matter how "good" or "new" your wiring may be, there are still those instances when it can fail on you, and take out your expensive computer. Really, a $150 investment to protect your $500+ computer is more than worth it.
You mean the company that has been in the tech news for the past couple years? First because of it's innovative way of skirting the law, and second during it's long drawn out trial in court where big content was trying to shut them down?
Steve didn't give a shit. I don't give a shit. Looks like others here don't give a shit. So I will keep on not giving a shit whether he likes to play with other men's Penii or not.
Problem with your idea is that you would be adding mass to the moon (sending comets into the moon) and if you do that enough you've increased it's mass. That causes issues with things down here on Earth. And we're already causing enough problems for ourselves environmentally.
Because people who aren't rich can't own a vehicle that used to be expensive? My car retailed around $70k new. I picked it up for $40k. Doesn't mean that I can pay for every ticket that I would get if I drove around with the hammer down all the time. Thankfully, I usually drive like a responsible adult, and don't attract more attention than the car does on it's own.
Agreed, I only replace what I deem necessary to replace when the time comes. Just recently I replaced my Core2 Quad Q9550, P45 board and memory for a Sandy Bridge based CPU (2500K) motherboard (Z68) and memory (recently being 2 years ago). Then I replaced my 2x GTX470s with a GTX780 around a year or so ago. It's ever evolving. I'll be putting a second GTX780 in there as soon as I can find a great deal on one. This doesn't include the countless SSDs I've installed as well.
.50cal round shot out of either a M2 machine gun, or M82 or one of it's many variants is scary enough.
Now to have a round that can guide itself? Downright creepy.
Only have one LED (interior) flood. But it's been going without issue since I've had it. Need to replace the rest of my floods in my house with them. Want dimmable ones so they'll be pricy initially.
What's there to do? I couldn't tell exactly where they were coming from. And it's not like a noise complaint would do anything as, again, I couldn't tell exactly what house they were coming from (wooded areas in between lots you see).
Hell yes. I agree completely. I have a 9 month old now, and some jerkface was lighting fireworks off (big ones, CT outlaws any fireworks beyond a sparkler) right outside his window at 11PM. Made me want to walk out and beat the person's face in with a baseball bat.
