I'm on an acoustic coupler, you insensitive clod!

2GB Jaz, please!
I have two 1" spinnies, they're both 4GB and they both have problems. One is for some reason unable to maintain a stable partition table (though the data remains completely intact), the other likes to spin down immediately a write operation finishes.
you don't do much in the way of raw graphics or video processing, do you?
not to mention renegotiating the ~100KV contract with the power company...
how does that figure to now, when you can buy a 4GB stick of DDR3 for the equivalent of $28 on the high street?
too rich for my blood. Damn.
Is she still packing? Last I heard, she was still packed with explosives and back in February I think it was, a veteran ordnance disposal guy said it'd cost over £30 million to make it safe... which the Government wanted happening anyway because it's in the way of the new London Airport they've got planned though nobody's asked for (there's already four, how many more do they think they need??).
yeouch, 50VDC right up the caboose...
oh, yes, I'm sure they had the same concerns regarding the disposal of the MSC Napoli and its proximity to Lyme Bay.
Why all this effort to refloat her? As has been pointed out, she's been partially and asymmetrically submerged for the better part of two years, surely it'd be easier to just send in the divers with cutting torches or shaped charges, split the hull, and float her off in sections on barges (as they ended up doing with MSC Napoli)?
Is this a dress rehearsal for RMS Titanic? If so, I've got news: she's been under for 101 years, is in far worse condition and is apparently split into at least two sections.
Is there something aboard Costa Concordia that we shouldn't know about? (yes, I'm thinking of a certain book)
Either way, I personally think the only decent thing to do here is to leave her be, apart from draining off any remaining fuel oil, as a marine grave marker, and let the seas reclaim her. What's happening right now is a desecration.
I can't believe there's been no xkcd reference yet... something about shooting a wad of electrons all over your amour's back...
I've built workstations intended for connection to library systems, and one of the airgap security measures I've employed was to cut the data conductors behind the USB port*. OK, it's permanent unless you're really handy with a soldering iron, but you'd have to get around the keybolts holding the case together first...
*Recent innovations in workstation motherboard design have done away with PS/2 ports for keyboard/mouse, the way around that is to use a quality keyboard/mouse and hardwire those suckers.
And trust that the user isn't about to alligator the data lines on one of those...
yeah, saw that. Hope you got your water wings. Or a nice boat.
Wobbly bridges, nonexistent highways, and GPS coordinate usage that looks like the clocks were off by about forty yards.
Think I'll pass.
Magna Carta was sealed by the King nearly three hundred years prior to the discovery of the Americas by European explorers.
The Colonies were founded, for the most part, by people emigrating from England, for the New World in search of a better life.
Those people were, until the Declaration of Independence, wholly governed by the Laws and Customs of England.
Do you get it yet?
By the way, Magna Carta is not a "British" document. It is the very foundation and basis of every Constitutional Republic on the fucking planet. INCLUDING THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.
