Is there any problem with this brand/model of somestuff ?
This is much more important than any performance review.
Last time I bought a printer, I almost went for a 5 star review model and I changed my mind after looking for problem reports about this model.
I decided to buy an other brand, a model for which there was much fewer problems, yet a good amount of positive feedbacks.
Usually reviews are based on a few days test of new products, maybe sent by the maker itself. They don't report anything that happen after a few weeks or months.
1- read any review for technical characteristics ( amongst the top 10 search of "review" + brand / model )
2- thoroughly search "problem" + brand / model in discussions and feedbacks
Numbering items with an index starting from zero isn't counting. It's just numbering.
Teach this first, along with counting continguous elements by index substraction + 1.
None of my recent "improvements" have been accepted even when they are 1 low possible impact, and 2 fixing some edge case the maintainer doesn't care about. Lots of NIH syndrome going on.
I would like to know what are those edge cases about, if you don't mind.
(just curious, and willing to understand)
I remember that all my Deskstar drives failed after each other very soon...
Regarding those statistics, I think we should rule out some brand and model well known for failure, because, as soon as the information goes public, we need to replace them with some other brand/model.
With such strategy we can achieve a lower effective failure rate.
See what kind of activities can be isolated, in a picture.
I think they got it right.
Not very portable: one need to run it on bare metal (along with 4GB minimum), nomads will bring along their laptop, at least (also: secure boot optional).
Backups must be fully automatic, otherwise you'll stop doing them regularly.
Backups should be rotated. A midnight backup is useless if you are hacked at 11:55 PM, or discover a problem 2 days later. You must have access to older backups.
Rotated, with galvanic isolation, and fully automatic : how do you manage this ?
Backups are rotated on two drives at least, and they shouldn't be both online at any time, in case of power surge or lightning, or even hacking of the backup server.
The only way I see to achieve this, with one backup site, is to have backup drive B physically disconnected while backup drive A is plugged.
How could it be fully automated ?
Of course one solution is to have two backup sites, far enough from each other, with two different server software (otherwise they are much likely to be both compromised with the same vulnerability).
This is an expensive solution for private use.
[...] you could clap your hands (or click your tongue) and hear the location of the echoes in the room. With practice you can identify the rough shape of the room and even location of large objects.
I suggest the
Best results in the dark, during a quiet night so you won't hear much background noise, yet close your eyes.
Snap your fingers while walking slowly (short whistle also works).
If you do this walking down a corridor, then you will guess where are the doors, the coats hanging, the turns and crossing very easily.
Thank you for your post, I have the old sparc based NAS and started to wonder if I need to patch.
(however I still have emails to remind me to install the lastest firmware 4.1.12 for sparc based NAS - security issues and DLNA features.)
Let me share those tips I've found:
No credit card required to create an Apple ID if you don't have one: tip 1
No Snow Leopard upgrade from Leopard (however you should have a Snow L. licence for this Mac): tip 2
One still needs a Snow Leopard at least to use the new App Store and download the Maverick files.
Maybe you can go to a friend's and use your new ID to download your Maverick copy... or wait for a tip 3 someone may post here !
I'm looking for a multipurpose B&W printer, laser, for home.
My current choice is the Brother MFC-7460DN , also good for SOHO.
It's a multipurpose B&W laser printer, 26ppm print; 35-sheet Auto Document Feeder; Duplex print, Fax, colour scanner.
It looks like people have less problems with this brand/model than some others, so I think I buy it
I've seen many news web sites, in France, that shut down the comment feature in advance for articles about subjects usually prone to racist or antisemitic comments.
I have mixed feelings about this kind of limitations, they look like full preventive cencoreship.
Sometimes they can resort to manual comment moderation for this type of subject.
