Hey! That dollar would feed a dozen starving children!
Just so all parties know the risks involved, it's all good.
Yeah, that's the problem. Once IT owns it, they're also the ones that take the blame when it fails; known risk factors don't make a bit of difference to the scapegoat when data is lost.
Therefore the scapegoat buys the most reliable storage it can afford.
as opposed to a zero chance of survival from the idiot swiping you from behind because you cannot SEE him at all, and have NO chance of evasive maneuvers
Repeating this fallacy doesn't make it any more valid than it was the first time.
Fact: you're riding on a road designed for cars. If you can't handle that, then don't do it.
Fact: all vehicles on that road (motorized or otherwise) are responsible for their own ability to drive safely and within the law. If you can't handle doing what every other driver and rider expects of you, then you have no business being on that road.
Fact: riding against traffic on a bicycle is no less stupid than riding against traffic on a motorcycle. There's no difference whatsoever. Well, except that the motorcycle is generally easier to see.
If you're having visibility problems, then you must be too cool for a rear-view mirror. They're five bucks at the local bike shop and solve that problem quite nicely. "Can't see the people behind me" isn't a valid excuse for endangering not only yourself, but everyone else on the road by doing something completely and idiotically unexpected, like driving head-on into traffic.
In short, you're the kind of guy that routinely fucks up my morning commute due to (a) an overinflated sense of entitlement to the use of a road intended for motorized vehicles, and (b) a complete and utter lack of common sense and self-preservation skills.
Oddly, I run a number of VMs that only have 128MB RAM and run just fine. They're complete Linux installs running web servers, NFS servers, custom apps, and more.
Oh wait, you meant JVMs...
Yeah, I think I'll not bother with Eclipse, thanks.
Been there, done that, believe it was patented by iPIX. Not sure who holds it now since they're gone AFAIK...
Seriously, they used this to do those 3D virtual tours.
