Nobody even brought up the monitor refresh rate.
Also FYI the octane requirement can be related to timing advance, where a lower-compression turbocharged engine with more advanced timing would need higher octane gas to make longer burns from each spark (higher octane gas burns longer than lower octane gas). The earlier spark sets off a longer-burn time of gas timed to the timing, needing the longer-burn ability of the 92+ octane. An old simple truck with 0 BDC timing would be happy with 87 octane, where a newer engine with 15 BDC timing advance would be better with 92+ octane.
Fuck this is way off topic from hard drives, sorry. Just needed to fill in some missing info.
As for hard drives, the more, the better. RAID is for safety now, and SSD's are for speed where we used to have RAID-0. ETC
I hear they have bones of a long-dead race of giants with multiple rows of teeth and stuff.
Some of us can drive, is my real point. My vehicles are not in good enough shape for daily 100+MPH speeds, but I do maintain above 75 regularly and all the while obeying the important road rules like use of turn signals, minimum safe braking distance, proper lane usage (keep right unless passing and no faster cars are approaching in the left etc).
It is true that an unfortunate amount of people don't obey the basic road rules because there are no license re-tests and they forgot how all the important details work with regard to the symbols and orders years ago. But that's just a symptom of general ignorance. A lot of these same ignorant people also drive too slow.
fuckin' politicians - worst enemy causing the most harm to our country in existence. I believe at least 3/5 of congress is on the take (taking bribes for their votes, in case you don't understand)
OK that was just joke-trolling. But I don't agree that we should settle for 1080p regardless. I found myself a $200 deal on a Dell Ultrasharp U2410 for my big system, where the important graphics happen. It does 1920x1200 and it's very nice. I would surely rather have a 27" monitor with the 1600p or whatnot resolution, but money has to be spent on practical things sometimes.
This also sounds like a previous Slashdot discussion about GPUs...
What a piss-poor excuse for a product launch. Don't these piss-ant Dell people have noses in their quality control department.
If it really is 2500 light years away, then we have no hope of getting there without quantum teleportation etc. But if we could do that, then sending a well-equipped spacecraft out there somewhere in that solar system to check it out would be a good plan I think. Get to work, folks.
