Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
Not worth the trouble. Load is low because my script makes 1 http get request per second. If *everyone* is trying to mirror, it could be a problem depending on the hardware running the site. I'd much rather just finish up under the radar and get it into archive.org without any headaches.
I'm snapshotting it right now. It'll be in the Internet Archive tonight or tomorrow.
Please don't. I'm already archiving the entire site into archive.org right now, and don't want their load to increase to the point they were try to prevent the archiving operation.
Using the above bookmarklet will archive the entire page in the Internet Archive immediately (timestamped by the Internet Archive). The Internet Archive crawler respects robots.txt, but it doesn't appear the Flickr robots.txt file will prevent you from using this method.
GoGo is provided by a company called Aircell, out of Itasca, IL. They rely on a network of ~400 AT&T cell tower locations to provide connectivity (its all interconnected over MPLS). Row 44 is a competitor, and they use satellite connectivity, and hence can provide coverage over the ocean or international countries.
Not all relevant info, but thought I'd throw it out there.
Telematics (like OnStar), over the air software updates, etc.
OnStar from GM is something like $300/year. To get that same level of control, plus all service included, for $600? Sign me up.
You are not the target market.
$600? For you to come pickup the car and give me a loaner? And do over the air software updates? And provide telematics like OnStar?
Shut Up And Take My Money. (I make ~$150K/year, $600 is only a couple hours of time)
Not paying for the damage you do to the water and the air is a subsidy.
The human brain doesn't fully develop until 25. We don't even hold teenagers responsible for their actions until they're 17-18.
You're either going to pay for your heating source upfront (geothermal), or over time through fuel.
The problem is having power on demand. I want to turn on the heating *now* now wait until the wind blows of the sun shines
Then get a heat pump, and make up the difference with cheap electricity or natural gas. The earth below your feet makes for a phenomenal energy sink.
Chicagoian here: I recently drove back from Tampa, FL to Chicago on Sunday. Drove through Atlanta at the right time. Got to Indiana and followed plows back from Indianapolis up to the state line. In a 2 door coupe with 300hp and stock tires.
Be prepared. Slow down. Don't drive like an asshole. Most importantly, *don't go out if you don't need to*.
What happens when consumer demand for bandwidth rises faster than prices, and your revenue and profits don't cover equipment upgrades because of the demand curve? In that case, you charge more.
If you're Comcast, AT&T, or some other large incumbent, yes, you're milking your customers. Small town ISPs? Not so much. Feel free to grab an uplink and some gear, and try to deploy your own low density ISP and see what your costs are.
