I'd like to see that with Silverlight....
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
I believe that the null gravity point is about 90% from Earth. It should remain stationary and would be a true space station and not orbital. It could be out of the earth moon plane as well, so you wouldn't have issues with eclipses.
I agree with the AC that the next one should be an unmanned freight depot about half way to Mars.
So what happens in 2024? They shut ISS down? I expect to see another crater somewhere in the middle of Australia soon after.
Anyway, if you are going to build another one, then move it far out at null gravity between the Moon and Earth, instead of stuffing around in Earth orbit, i.e. stationary. Make it count as a stepping stone at least.
OK So I'm not into this very much. I use some splitters and re-encode ripped video on the odd occasion with Handbrake. What got me though with HEVC is that the requirements for playback needs a multi-core processor.
I downloaded a 30 min video file (FTA torrent) and I was surprised with the smaller file size (about 30-40% improvement), but pissed off at not having a player for it. After searching around, I got VLC updated to play the file which looked promising at first. Unfortunately, it bombed out as it lost the audio/video sync within a few minutes and started to jitter.
Undie-turred, I downloaded a different source and found the same issue. The files just wouldn't play on a single processor successfully.
ATM I can't support this codec as I have a few old, single core laptops in bedrooms that are used to play video from my home server.

I remember seeing pics and descriptions of the Hydrogen Bomb in high school. Never bothered to examine the design again.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/T... has the basic design. So what's the rub?
(picking teeth) Ain't that what we called a bootstrap loader in my day?
Mod up please +1 as informative.
No. It'll be another reality show "Carolina Butcher Hunter", probably on TLC or Discovery Science. If it would be on SyFy then it'll be crap.
Naah... Red Dwarf was the first.
Kryten decides to use the time wand to restore Pete to life (a bird), however it goes badly wrong as Kryten accidentally reverses the sparrow's evolution and turns it into a massive Tyrannosaurus.
Why teh fuck did I start this? Oh yeah. I'm game. I need my brain to be ultrasounded asap.
It's the imitator language derivative that is still being used today in Old Persia. Those Iranians are fun guys!
It's the script to use when you don't want to write in Arabic.
and forcing the survivors to live a pre-industrial lifestyle.
Yep! My ancestors were horse archers. They made a huge mistake allying themselves with the Franks. Within 100 years, they lost their Parthian tactics consequently adopting Frankish heavy armour in battle. Soon, their brethren Mongols slew them down. So yes. Let's get back to those times. It takes a good few months to make a bow from sinew, bone and wood. The shafts have to be long, straight and the points sharp to pierce deep. Oh and don't forget the stirrups that allow us to use both hands when we aim and fire! Let me join the hoard now as I'm ready for vengeance! We need more land along the river banks to settle our tribe, to hunt with dogs and share our food. Destroy those Christians who want to take away our beliefs and runes. Let our shamans record our glory and we will bury our heroes in all their finery, with weapons at hand for the battles to come!
The Khazars are with us! Let's ride!
Cyber Armageddon? Sure it's possible and very probable. It's just that no-one's bothered to try it big scale. No-one wants to admit it either, so their only choice is to deny that it's possible.
QNAP is my choice for a nice NAS. A 4 bay one will give you 12TB + 4TB raid that you don't have to touch for a long, long time. Comes with all the software you'll need as well. Cheaper NAS would be the Netgear range. 2nd hand ones are good, but if you want a HTPC function and if you don't have Smart TVs then make sure it has an HDMI port. The HP microserver (G7) is ideal. 2nd hand ones are good too as you can populate them with 4 HDDs and run a SSD for the OS of your choice. If you need a TV card (with HDMI output) then it also has a spare slot.
These solutions are cheaper than building a small server and are purpose built for your requirements.
As for crawlspaces? I ran a complete system in mine (Win 2000) for a few years with no issues. It was off the ground on a wooden plinth (a piece of mdf on an old pallet). My crawspace is sealed from wind and light, but not waterproof as the arsehole that built the house stuck it on top of an underground spring.
