First step in LTO-6 (native 3.2TB, 210MB/s) was made in June 2011 when the three technology providers announced the availability of licenses for this format. But later these specs were reduced to only native 2.5TB (+67% compared to LTO-5) and 160MB/s (a mere +15%). Generally, the capacity of the LTO tape follows current highest capacity of HDD. But it's now 4TB uncompressed and LTO-7 is supposed to be native 6.4TB (and 315MB/s) and will be there probably in at least two years.
So it looks like LTO-6 would backup 4TB uncompressed, pushing the original standard a little bit (no pun intended).
Hum... the LTO-6 tapes are only 2.5TB native ( 6.5TB with 2.5 compression, that won't apply to media files).
Someone said there's 4TB tapes now, it looks so but news about this are rare...
Add some references and price of such hardware and media that would suit best home usage.
Onagawa plant article is very insteresting.
It explain how a more stressed nuclear plant on the sea shore hadn't catastrophic consequences after the tsunami:
Safety culture impulsed by a man.
Onagawa was only 123 kilometers away from the epicenter—60 kilometers closer than Fukushima Daiichi—and the difference in seismic intensity at the two plants was negligible. Furthermore, the tsunami was bigger at Onagawa, reaching a height of 14.3 meters, compared with 13.1 meters at Fukushima Daiichi. The difference in outcomes at the two plants reveals the root cause of Fukushima Daiichi’s failures: the utility’s corporate “safety culture.”
Yanosuke Hirai, vice president of Tohoku Electric from 1960 to 1975—a time period that preceded the 1980 groundbreaking at Onagawa—was adamant about safety protocols and became a member of the Coastal Institution Research Association in 1963 because of his concern about the importance of protecting against natural disasters. With a senior employee in upper management advocating forcefully for safety, a strong safety culture formed within the company.
See what they did in Onagawa in the article: plant built on higher ground, five times the estimated average tsunami height, plus tsunami response aware teams.
Tepco did the oposite: "to make it easier to transport equipment and to save construction costs, in 1967 [they] removed 25 meters from the 35-meter natural seawall of the Daiichi plant site" !!!
Shall we focus on how one can detect this situation ?
Case 1 : One have access to the network
- Bring you own trusted device: laptop / tablet /
Could the device be also abused ?
Case 2 : One has a limited access to the system
- Start your own Portable Firefox on USB key, with standard certificates. See the certificate warning.
Is there any other tool ?
Case 3 : One has access to a kiosk or similar looked system
- Assume everything is logged, don't trust. Poor configurations may be worked around to visit any web site, but don't type any password on it.
[...] I have no issue with making in-game purchases available if it has no effect on gameplay.
Many people are like us.
I would say that I'm rather tight when it comes to buy any software, games included.
But when the game is really free, with hours of entertainment and good support, I'm happy to buy those silly cosmetic stuff for fun and to support its development.
I paid Path Of Exile some $35 the month I started to play. I think I've never spent that much for a game !
I've read that I lot of people do so. When those purchases are rendered in game as cosmetics we see the support of the players for the game, that's nice.
I believe that I could be the future for a substantial fraction of the games, but not all of them.
[...] labeling a subsection of microtransactions unethical [...] may be annoying, and insulting[...]
Yes, that's right.
I've just used the same wording as advertised, I understand it may be unfair.
However I really don't like a situation where I'm lured into something labeled "free" and once there I realize that nothing really cool will happen without paying for a few things.
Saying "I don't like" is an understatement, I won't describe the feeling.
WinXP: It's good enough.
... until some malware abuse the unmaintained system.
or until a very useful web site ask for up-to-date browser extension.
I would like to agree with you, really.
I do agree up to this point: browsing the Internet requires maintenance to be done to keep up to date the system with exploits to patch out and extensions to plug-in.
And for only off-line use I would rather use XP than 7, it's a matter of GUI taste and comfort.
Some good games can collect a lot of money with
- "Pay what you want" as in Humble Bundle (however there's a lot of games previously sold at a classic price)
- Ethical microtransactions, which mean not needed at all to succeed in game, like cosmetic purchases in Path Of Exile.

Given that much more hidden spy cameras are available for far less than the $1500 cost of Glass, what will it take for general acceptance to finally take hold?
I think ordinary people won't buy spy cameras to take pictures of others, no matter how cheap they are (investigation and voyeurism are not ordinary).
As I noticed with cameras on phones and smartphones, some people took my picture without my consent, just because it was easy and available and inconspicuous (or they tought it was).
This may be the feelings those agressive people had: "Again! A gadget to have one photo taken without one being aware, neither asked." And this gadget is pushing it a bit too far.
Do you have some projects unknown to the public that you would really like to gave birth to ?
We all know about GNU, is there something else you didn't had time to start or to finish that we are unaware of and that would really please you to see completed ?
This is one question, paraphrased.
