Hi, thanks for the info. I actually learned something.
(Not a Comcast customer, tho... where I live, if you mention cable, they laugh and point.)
Hmm. I use Google's DNS, and eztv.it resolves for me as of two seconds ago (and has the couple of times I've been to eztv.it in the past month, too).
What DNS did you add?
[goes to look] I'm not seeing any complete, working drives at that kind of price. Those start at around $300.
Otherwise.... tell me more, and what to look for in such a drive used?
Last I heard, BluRay-R discs have a shelf life of about 6 months before they start losing data. Has this problem been solved??
This is why I archive my email into separate bins every 60mb or so (which means about twice a year) -- anything larger becomes unwieldy. It's a nuisance, but not nearly the nuisance of trying to search the file with an external tool because it got munged and won't open in the mail client.
[This is with SeaMonkey, which still keeps mail as plaintext, thank ghod, so any good text editor can root about in the file at need.]
Their server doesn't support resuming?? or is it specific to their client software, if any??
Regardless, that sucks.
The problem with the whole backup tape thing is that the total solution tends to exceed the cost of just buying more hard disks, and is often so much slower.
Dunno about now, but back in the days of QIC-80, the only tapes that were worth a shit were Sony. Number of bad blocks when first formatted (don't forget to format your tapes!) and likelihood that the tape would be bad later on correlated pretty well, in my experience. Sony consistently had no more than four bad blocks per tape (the only one I ever saw with more, I returned as defective), vs 20 to 300 for other brands.
And all I could find for my Travan drive were TDK, tho they seemed to be okay.
Great, now I've got kids on my lawn again...
The 22 and 40 look like lower and upper bounds. In section 6.1 of the paper, it says, "we infer the lowest current mass of the system to be 22±5 [solar masses]" . They mention this value comes from a calculation based on Kepler's 3rd law. So it looks like the lower bound comes from orbital mechanics based on the orbit of the companion star and the upper bound of 40 comes from their interferometry observations and modeling of that data, but they consider it more likely that the true value is closer to the higher value.
The atmosphere is, on the books, $0 in assets. That doesn't mean you can phase out use of the atmosphere and not wreck the economy. Imagine how much damage the economy would take if you stopped people from using the atmosphere and instead required that they acquire necessary gasses from non-atmospheric sources.
As someone pointed out in a previous story, the real problem is that the Constitution has no teeth.
Yes, I can come up with a thousand free market answers. And yes, that pretty much answers your question.
Would you buy a vehicle from any company whatsoever if you knew that parts were difficult to acquire? A manufacturer can play a game with parts availability only if they don't plan to stay in business.
Maybe we should go back to renting our phones from ATT as well.
Yeah because paying out the benefits that these generations worked for... the benefits that they paid for with their taxes during their earning years... yeah, they just aren't carrying their own weight. Lazy fuckers
Ya know, you're assuming all water used in ag is pumped out of the ground. True in some areas, not in others. And that it's not replenished fast enough -- true in some areas, not in others.
I find it rather telling that the most resistance to building dams to store the winter melt comes from areas with the most hue and cry against ag water use. (Did you know that some parts of the Sierra Nevada can achieve a snowpack in excess of 50 FEET?? Where do you think all the water goes in the spring?)
There are parts of Calif that are now desert, but were not before Los Angeles siphoned off all the surface water. Think on that.
And you are right, grass evolved to be grazed (and it doesn't really matter if it's bison or cattle). If it's not grazed, eventually it's overtaken by invasive weeds.
