I can't tell if you are denying the similarity between ducks and geese, have not seen a duckwalk in open ranks, or just have some sort of humor aversion.
Thanks kind of funny since the Russian army stil uses the goose step, and the US military never has. Interesting symbolism.
To be fair, the US military does have a duck walk. Similar animal, just as goofy.
You are saturating 10gbps Network Legs? I would love to see any part of that setup.
Its not that I don't believe you, it is that I would love to be able to do it.
Yup. Though I haven't seen a lot of need beyond that for workstations (i.e. they're saturating but willing to deal with it).
On the server/storage/SAN, side 10gig is kind of funny. At some places it's overkill and too expensive. At others, it's nowhere near enough.
But if the enterprise drive costs twice as much as a RED or some other lower grade drive, wouldn't I be better off buying two cheaper drives and putting them in a mirror?
* an increased risk of data loss
* an increased risk of data unavailability
* a cost of $150/hr to get a tech on-site to replace drives
* you need to buy a larger/more expensive chassis
* you need to spend more on the controller to be able to compensate
This is really a moot point. If you're not clustering or otherwise building in tons of redundancy, you'll have higher availability and lower TCO buying from Dell/HP/whomever, and they'll bundle the right drives from the start.
If you are building a cluster, you're not going to take random advice from posters on Slashdot. Build out whatever you want, just know that SuperMicro has terrible support and warranties. Expect bad lots and don't forget to pay attention to firmware and settings.
Any chance you can link to some tests/reviews of their claims?
Not the AC, and too lazy to google this again, but I was going to post the same experience with ZH. They announced support for zero hand off when it was in ages, never got it working well, and seem to have given up on it.
The basic idea was "set all APs to use the same channels, then clients will just use the strongest signal". Of course, even after hours of research and trying to fix the configs, clients lost connection when physically walking around. And if they managed to find a spot where the signals were similar, they could get some really fun rapid switching between APs.
Putting unauthorized porn of unwilling people on the internet, and then charging them money to remove it? What a scumbag. They're going to have a lot of fun with him in jail.
Nothing illegal about putting pictures of people on the internet. Absolutely 100% legal if they had been street photos. I didn't read this ruling, but I suspect he may not have been convicted if he hadn't charged for removal.
I've had some SSDs last for almost three years, but I would not trust them for important data. They are fine as a cache for speeding up OS access, or for a music player, but a magnetic hard drive is better for professional use.
You don't understand professional use. A professional would never, ever, ever trust a single device/system for important data. Not ZFS, not tape, not hard drives, not SSDs, not stone tablets.
Others might ask, why don't they just use a year/calendar based version number? Like Ubuntu does.
Mark my words, Y2.1K is coming for Ubuntu.
But with global warming you don't necessarily get warmer weather. That's because "warming" is a misnomer. What's actually going on is the total amount of kinetic energy in the atmosphere is going up.
By definition, doesn't that mean it's actually not a misnomer? I mean, I know what you're saying, and I agree with you... but 'the global climate' is going to get warmer. There will be more thermal energy. So can't we find a word better than misnomer that means "technically true jargon that conflicts with the popular usage/misunderstanding of the term"?
Honest question. I think we need a word for that, and it bothers me that I can't think of one.
How can I trust the rest of your post when this is such a blatant fabrication?
The greatest cost in healthcare is the paperwork and liability insurance due to our LEGAL system. You'd cut costs in half (or more) making a couple simple changes
There are some cloud rendering solutions out there, but most studios have their own render farms in-house... and a lot of the companies you think are studios are mainly just production companies that outsource most of the heavy lifting to specialized shops (who work on multiple projects simultaneously and have no problem keeping a render farm busy).
~20 replies, and yours was the only one that mentioned workload?
Agreed. Seen plenty of PB+ systems with no SSD caching. Granted, also seeing increasing use of SSDs for metadata/journaling in highly sequential environments.
But pressurizing and then shooting holes in the walls and windows is simple enough to test, pressure drop/time shows everything you need to know.
Then they would blow it up for boredom's sake as teaching science to idiots is dull and repetitive.
I didn't watch the episode (or think explosion from depressurization is the primary concern of bullets on airplanes), but... just tell me Myth Busters actually took a plane to altitude and did this? Because I don't think testing at ground level, not moving, in much hotter air, is valid. And from the comments here, that is the impression I am getting of their test.
Personally, I'm much more worried that stray bullets will take out electrical systems, hydraulics/control surfaces, lead to fires, or somehow damage bleed air systems. And any of these can set the conditions for a crew to react inappropriately.
It is refreshing to know some people understand the situation there and understand the use of American troops as tripwires.
That said, I think it's important to make the distinction that American bases in ROK are more than just a tripwire. "Speed bump" means that they are supposed to slow the enemy advance to buy time for other assets to be put to use. They also have the tertiary purpose of maintaining the vast supplies needed to fight that war.
While I get your broader point... $150k for 450 TB of higher tier storage? Properly replicated, regularly backed up, with enough IOPS and networking for a busy Exchange server? $150k is low. Very low. And don't forget you'll need a second one for that DR site.
