A. There is a fundamental aspect of space/time we don't understand. (Maybe there is some type of Aether?)
B. We don't understand gravity over long distances. (Maybe it has a different effect over longer distances than we are aware)
C. We are not measuring something else properly. Light, time, distance....?

This whole "dark matter" thing has been unreasonably preposterous from the word go.

While the RT agenda is fairly obvious and I don't question that some of the info is skewed in some way, I find it a much more reliable outlet than CNN, MSNBC, FOX, or the plethora of other vacuous and blatantly false media outlets available here in the US.

I can find some decent reporting on the RT, and almost none of it is about Honey Boo Boo and Kim Kardashian, so..... .... It's a much better news source than most of the gheystream media.

We have a few solid and redundant Internet connections, a bunch of rack space and triple fail-safe power (including a generator if both of our power contracts simultaneously fail). While this is a great solution for our hosting and mail clients, it's not the stability and up-time that multiple international data centers would provide.

There's got to be some other small data centers like us who are looking for a distant location to have a few racks in. Is there currently a website or online meet up that provides a good forum for partnering with other small data centers and trading rack space/bandwidth straight across?"

Comment: What makes good movies... (Score 1) 1029

1. The Big Lebowski
2. Office Space
3. Ground Hog Day
4. Brassed Off
5. Empire Strikes Back
6. The Princess Bride
7. Borat
8. Dumb & Dumber
9. Braveheart
10. The Unforgiven

What do these movies have in common? Great plots, great concepts, and great execution. Some of them are big budget, but most of them did not have to be (besides Braveheart and ESB obviously). Hollywood makes almost nothing but crap now. It's not really about the budget or the star factor. IDIOTS!

Jenny McCarthy isn't the problem.
Barbara Walters isn't the problem.
Measles, Autism, and Vaccines aren't even the problem.
The problem is that these insane and corrupt pharmaceutical companies have such a poor history of engendering human health that nobody trusts them at all any more.
I'm pro science. I'm pro vaccine. But how can I justify endangering my kid by injecting an infant with the history of Glaxosmithkline?
That seems riskier than ANY disease.
Give me a vaccine from a company with a history of good human health decisions, and I'll gladly use it!

So would this be more or less energy dense as a storage medium than graphene ultracapacitors?

What's the memory like? How many charge cycles are they good for?

Or should I just start working on building my portable micro thorium salt reactor?

I know right, if you're going to waste all that money, why not waste it on solar power plants or thorium salt reactors? That would pay for itself eventually no matter what, fix the environment, and they'd STILL be getting something for the imaginary bank bubble they're already locked into.

Long Answer: For a while maybe. But as Android & Linux continue dominating in the mobile/server spaces and Linux Mint keeps gaining on the desktop then long term they are screwed. They don't have the best OS. They don't have the cheapest OS. In fact, other than market dominance I can't think of a single reason anyone is using their OS. The last good OS they put out was XP SP3. That was over a decade ago. They are the walking dead at this point. Steam client for Linux is the first bell toll of their inevitable demise.
