We just had a 3TB drive fail and it took 172hours to resilver the drive. [ZFS Raid 6]. That was long enough that we're switching to Raid 10. I wonder if a 10TB drive could rebuild before too many drives fail and take out the array.

Oops, should have hit paste before posting:
"Mr. Cantor can't run as a third-party candidate. Virginia law forbids candidates who lose primary elections from appearing on the general election ballot. It is not immediately clear if he will mount a write-in campaign , as did Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R., Alaska) after losing a 2010 GOP Senate primary." — The Wall Street Journal
No, he can't appear on the ballot after losing the primary. He'd have to be a write-in.
It's not clear to me that swerving is going to improve the situation. It seems possible to me that swerving may expose the vehicle to increased danger. If swerving leads to a rollover or an angle with less crumple zone material it may increase the danger to occupants of the vehicle. "Don't Steer, hit the deer."
Swerving could also result in the vehicle traveling into areas where it should not ever be. A sidewalk, a median, a house, etc. Persons in those areas are not acceptable alternative impact targets as they should have a reasonable expectation of not being exposed to traffic danger.
Get the My-Q system and an opener that has autoclose after X minutes feature. It's worth the peace of mind.
It's a marketing gimmick for Planetary Annihilation (http://www.uberent.com/pa/).
Release day is going to be a smash!
Bingo! Lose the humans in the craft and you can reclaim all that mass required for life support and either run lighter or with more fuel / payload and less restrictions on G-forces. The metal can take more punishment than the meat.
It's sounds more like they're being operated by a Coal / Oil company that wants to see nuclear energy banned everywhere.
Seriously. [though I'll take mod +funny too] Buick drivers (typically elderly) would benefit greatly from this technology as it would grant them improved safety and autonomy. And society as a whole would benefit as the elderly with autodrive would present fewer road hazards, and would be able to stay out of assisted living for a longer time thus helping to keep the cost of assisted living down.
And within 30 years, I'll need cars to do the driving for ME!
I can't wait.
This was modded funny, but it's only funny because it's Informative and true. Starbucks is awful unless it's mixed with other flavorings.
Yes, we should all focus on really important things like Bradley's gender identity and not wasting any more time on all that trivial information about what the government is doing: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Contents_of_the_United_States_diplomatic_cables_leak
Good to see priorities are in order.
And yet Rove, Libby, and Cheney walk free...
Choose to believe you are, in fact, a potato. How'd that work for you?
Still certain belief is volitional?
I think there is a common failure to understand how belief works. You've used the word "choose" in regards to belief as though belief were a matter of volition. I do not believe that the process of belief works like that. I think it is an involuntary process.
Perhaps a better understanding of the process of belief would help us to correct errant beliefs?
"Human Level AI"? Humans aren't exactly doing a wonderful job out there on the streets.
I wouldn't be at all surprised if the current autonomous systems are already safer than human drivers. Are they going to be infallible? No. But we need to compare the overall safety rates of computer controlled vehicles vs. human controlled vehicles and see what is better.
