...especially since their former product's business tried a low blow lawsuit on their newly acquired product line... This is a most likely outcome, and surprisingly newsworthy (since I think this is a pointless discussion).
Can't you walk over to where this equipment is and then post?
According to the Times, the reports were embarrassing for the Pentagon because, in five of the six incidents in which troops were wounded by chemical agents, the munitions appeared to have been "designed in the US, manufactured in Europe and filled in chemical agent production lines built in Iraq by Western companies".
Where were they found? Next to the plants set up by Western companies that filled them in Iraq, of course. Who has control of those plants now? Why, ISIS of course. Don't worry, though, the people who thought it was better we didn't know about these things are assuring us that all those weapons were hurriedly destroyed.
Bite the bullet and run CAT 6 Ethernet all over the place. You will get 1 GBs without any drops, and it's also future-proof. You may not max out your Internet anytime soon but having this in place will let you naturally upgrade your use as technology advances without requiring any changes.
If you have a NAS or a server, put it next to your fiber in jack along with a suitably powerful UPS. All your major network devices should run from that UPS so you'll be able to have Internet access or a while even when there's a power outage. Run wires from the jack, to your living room, office, and all the other places you will require Internet access. While you're at it, you probably should consider running two strands of wire all over the place. You can either run it in the walls if you feel like it, or use cable covers. Get the wire from Monoprice along with the necessary equipment to install them.
For Internet that goes up to 1GBs, you should get a Ubiquiti EdgeRouter Lite. It supports wire-speed forwarding and costs only $100. However, the setup might be a pain in the ass. However, once it is set up, it will never go down. And it's really goddamned fast. You might also want to invest in a commercial-grade switch such as the Ubiquiti ToughRouter or a Netgear GS116. You don't want to rely on consumer grade stuff that will blow up (like my RT-N16, which suddenly died one day and left my small office without any Internet for an entire day). The price differential really isn't that big. I can transfer files between my NAS and my desktop at 50-60 MB/s without stalling out other people's transfers.
As far as access points, you might want to get one or two that are POE from Ubiquiti. You can get their POE switch for the access points so you can run only one wire and be done with it. If you're going to be in the house for a long time, and your usage will only increase as you have kids, etc., then you should spend the time to set up a very robust network early on.
You're absolutely right. The problem with the Shuttle had nothing to do with the wings. The Shuttle used solid rocket boosters that could not be throttled down in case of emergency, and relied on O-rings to seal the segments that comprise the casing. (Challenger.) The leading surfaces of the Shuttle were made from fragile reinforced carbon-carbon that would shatter when impacted. (Columbia.) As you noted, the Shuttle also sat next to the cryogenic fuel tank, which caused ice to hit the Shuttle. (Not only did this cause Columbia to burn up, it also caused problems on other missions.) There was also no realistic intact abort option for the Shuttle. If shit went bad, the astronauts had to shimmy down a pole, and then JUMP out of the Shuttle.
The Sierra Nevada Dream Chaser has a hybrid fuel system that could be turned off. It also sits on top of the stack to prevent ice being a problem. It also has an abort system to give the astronauts a chance to survive during ascent. The wings also generate more lift than the Shuttle's, which gives the spacecraft a better glide ratio. The only thing is the RCC, which apparently is tougher on the Dream Chaser than the Shuttle.
In any case, if their marketing guy is a such a rube as to be roped in by this, is it absurd to imagine that their 2018 CPU will be powered by an E-Cat?
Alright, to finish things off, here's what someone who actually paid his dues, going out in a blaze of glory for pointing out Games Journalist Corruption, has to say.
I know, nobody's reading this. Well, hopefully someone at Intel is; and if you are, here's another post by that editor so horribly offensive because of her gurl parts that you publicly sided with a lynch mob. This one is on ethics, a word, to judge by their recent actions, so unfamiliar to your colleagues, that I wouldn't be surprised if the SEC levied historical fines against your company.
So, screw Intel. Or, to use the language they clearly prefer, assrape and teabag those assholes.
We also have local animals to screen in case they became a reservoir.....
But oh... no.. lets keep letting people in and out of these plagued countries/areas with ease and only a quick one-time health check...
How many predictions will the CDC be wrong about before they stop chasing it with "Don't worry"?
Thank you! This is one of the biggest points.
Did you use needles during your visit?
Did you engage in intercourse with anyone during your visit?
Did you eat any bushmeat during your visit?
(Subject thinking about how a yes to question will seriously inconvenience him and his plans --- and then making the awful assumption everyone does which is to think he's special and probably is not a problem).
Subject: Uhh.. nope. I just bought some postcards and took some pictures. That's all.
Dallas needs to be on lockdown for 21 days. The guy had symptoms for two days before he checked in...
My biggest fear about this is that the CDC has been wrong about their predictions all the way, and now they are CONFIDENT that this new 'blase' reaction to this guy is going to be enough and that we should (as they said in everything else that was wrong) 'not worry'. NOT WORRY? How about the people at the CDC show me that THEY are worried and working really goddamned hard to quarantine this plague -- that way I don't have to worry.
It's as if they're imagining the most positive outcomes and betting on it. PEOPLE'S FECAL MATTER GETS ON EVERYTHING! It's because we're animals! It's because we don't really wash our hands for 1 minute of scrubbing. Can we just get a grip on this and make everyone going to infected areas wait 2-3 weeks before they can travel? Is a little discomfort worth avoiding to put everyone at risk?
I'd love to see the CDC spokespeople bet their lives on their predictions. Why? If they doubt to bet their life, they will be forced to think about why they won't bet it. With every false confidence they project, they put us at risk.
They are what I term, Tupac-Christians. It's where you wear a gold chain and cross and you talk about 'god' and such, but you've only got a few toes in the pool of faith and you spend 99% of your time contradicting the faith. From my experience, most people that call themselves Christians fit this model, and most people that I would think are adhering closely to Jesus/Bible, would say that those other people are not real Christians.
