It's the first step of EEE. Drug dealers also give the first shot for free.
For most of us who aren't running IT departments that equation comes down to something like "ZFS RAIDZ2".
For those who aren't running IT departments, rsnapshot daily, weekly, monthly and yearly is easier and cheaper. Or any versioning backup.
Easier because most such people don't work on BSD / Solaris - so setting up a NAS is the extra step making ZFS difficult.
Cheaper because a lot of data will turn out to be not worth backup - rsnapshot can more easily exclude files that don't look like they need backup. So in a typical scenario, 10 timed versions of 1 TB can stay in 1 TB. Lots of nested mounts can exclude ZFS from RAIDZing too, but it is a hassle far bigger than simple regexp.
I know, just you behave like a 6 year old that should live with someone motherly.
Nice move - you've been proved wrong so cry "troll!!". Go to mommy.
FYI dictionary doesn't define non-trivial as hopeless. Reading comprehension 101 fail.
Which dictionary do you use which defines "entered" as "become top player"? FYI Microsoft's search engine is neither single threaded, nor Perl, not on MySQL either. Triple fail.
Human drivers are still dangerous
And no computer program ever had bugs. Honest.
Driverless cars aren't ready for prime time, but they will be
Prediction is difficult, especially of the future - probably Neils Bohr.
They might be ready. It is technologically possible, as this is the null hypothesis, until proven it is technologically impossible which hasn't been done yet. Will there be environmental (legal, economic, social) support for this to come about? Proof required before saying "will".
It doesn't invalidate the nurses' study because it doesn't try to? The nurses study , at least from its better known results, is about processed carbohydrates and trans fats. This one is about carbohydrates and saturated fat.
Nurses' study is "better" in rigor, but it's subject being different, has no bearing on this discussion.
If the measurement is not trivial, that in itself is an argument against calories in=out. Because then it might be accurate but useless as a guiding principle.
I had heard of poor reading comprehension, but not understanding your own statement? You take the cake. Look, "barrier to entry" doesn't matter to Microsoft and Yahoo - they have already entered. What you are referring to while calling it "barrier to entry" is actually "barrier to becoming the top player".
Free market does NOT depend on this being low, nor does a free market cause it to be low. This barrier being low does a world of bad for everyone.
I hear this a lot but I don't see this. I search Google by famous stock ticker names, and I always get Yahoo finance results as the top result. Google finance is 3rd or later, second is either "advice" from bloomberg or the company's own website.
OK, so how much tax exactly should an entity(person/company/trust etc ) pay to not be a leech?
It solves the problem of advertisements, which is kind of a solved problem using adblock, and as APK repeatedly reminds us, by hosts file.
But it accentuates the bigger problem - now Google knows exactly what you did last summer , since you have to be logged in to use your hard earned money's worth.
At least read the inputs before doing the math - you failed even before starting the math.
The context is " The deal is, I pay money for a game, which I can then play as much as I like". Comparison is not between completely free vs paid - it is between one time fee vs recurring payment.
And so long as the majority of voters blindly vote for "their team" regardless of issues or evidence
So you agree with the GP despite taking a tone that suggests mild disagreement?
If the majority voted the fuckers back into office, the majority is happy with the way things are going. Or at least they deserve to go the way they are going. No need to be "open to suggestions", no one needs you.
