I don't think you understand what "archive" means.
Personally, I think we're just fine if everything is converted to bits and we remember that there is no guarantee that a set of bits might not be damaged or lost.
Just like books - there's no guarantee those won't fall victim to water damage, or fire, etc. You have to take care of it, and guard against the applicable failure modes. With digital data this is just as possible, but the techniques are as different as the failure modes.
Just because it was sitting around in a library is no guarantee anything would have happened with it.
True, but if the charger was overheating, you would expect the performance characteristics to change.
That video isn't a very good example. He keeps moving the camera around, and it seems whenever it moves back out so you can see the whole rag pile, it appears to have been disturbed while it was not visible.
In the electrical outlet's enclosure? That's an odd place to put them...
Once again we have RANDOM_DUMBASS attempting to claim Teslas are akin to flashpaper and explode if you look at the wrong, in spite of strong empirical evidence of just the opposite.
Looking at the scene after the fact really only tells you that there was a fire at the interface between the building and the car.
The wall outlet doesn't have sensor logs to show it was or was not hot, the Tesla charger apparently does.
They have MSRs that cipher track data in the reader firmware. There's no excuse for them to not have it deployed.
Proximity and changing pH, I'd imagine.
I'm really - I mean really, uncomfortable with the thought of Microsoft planning this kind of thing 12 years in advance...
Also, you don't have projectiles flying off past the target if you miss or pass-through. If there's a friendly base, city etc beyond the drone, you most probably don't want to light it up with bullets or missiles.
... and the pitcher is $RANDOM_MALL_SANTA.
Or just have them bind to localhost, if you have software locally that requires them (for some reason). Done that way... if you can get to them, you already own the machine.
It's not really the camera - just like the US landing - the live picture looked like crap, but the images captured directly and brought back on film were fantastic.
It's the transmission bandwidth - that you have to share with telemetry. Also recall that you don't have a 4ghz CPU core up there to nicely digitize it with an efficient codec - it's hard to cool things up there.
