They teach too, but research has always been a part of it. Now if you don't want them getting patents and such on research that's fine, but then you need to increase funding. Part of the issue is that states have continually cut funding to universities. If that money isn't being paid in by the state, it needs to come from other sources, either higher tuition, or more research dollars.
Across a broad spectrum of drives (various brands and models) I'd say that's about right with my experience. My own WDs (probably a hundred or so individual drives) have had a little different numbers (I've never seen one fail in the 1-5 year range unless it had damage like being physically whacked around, and only a couple times in the infant stage) but still the same principle -- the three death points are infant, ordinary wear-out (5.5 yrs) or extreme old age.
Not as useless as bitching about it, kid.
Explain me again why hidden variables are ruled out.
because slice left-to-right rules out seeing X-Y from happening. Local hidden variables (i.e. it was X all along) can't create that ourcome (GLobal hidden variables due but these require spooky action at a distance to change B based on A's letter).
Finally you can't have letter A changing it's state in response to the slice as a local variable explanation, because, I have a free choice if I open letter A first (and thus determine B's outcome) or I open letter B first and thus determine letter A's outcome. Without global hidden variables A cannot know if B was opened yet or not.
Thus with local hidden vraibles seeing X-Y on a left to right slice would eventually have to happen. It doesn't.
Sounds about right. With all the MS employees looking to jump ship, I can't see why anyone who wants to hire a Windoze developer would spring for a ticket to interview a candidate from a different city.
It makes a helluva difference when my truck is hauling a 14,000 pound load in hilly country.
I asked WD how long a lifespan their drives were engineered for, and they told me 5 years. Didn't differentiate among types or models.
My experience has been that if WDs make it past the first month, they usually last about 5.5 years, but those that go beyond may last indefinitely. (I have some with 11+ years on 'em, 24/7/365.)
Back in the day I dismantled some dead SCSI drives, and found inside the exact same HD as the IDE variety of the same brand. Difference was in the interface, not the guts.
Chase, the bank that's thumbing its nose at the class action suit that found 'em guilty of unilaterally changing mortgage contracts and of being in cahoots with their own pet insurance provider... (this one I know about firsthand, it affected my mortgage).
My neighbor managed to pull 30A on a 15A standard outlet long enough to melt the extension cord.
(Here's a hint: never put two 15A tank heaters on one 14ga. extension cord.)
It MUST have been the "goddamn, dipshit, gypsy-dildo" Rodriguez brothers!
Or make these outlets metered -- put in a dime, draw up to 1KW of electricity, for ANY purpose.
My observation is that it goes the other way -- computer literacy tends to go along with older OSs, while the gotta-upgrade auto-update crowd usually knows the least. Your clients may vary.
I knew someone who was still hoarding XT motherboards as late as 1995, because their workplace's very expensive industrial machinery ran off XTs and wouldn't speak to anything newer. So, yeah, that's a problem. But I wouldn't think these constrained setups are usually open to the whole world, maybe not even connected at all.
...or several of the scenes in Repo Man!
Moreover, none of the nerds here have noticed yet that Tesla would not be proud of this. He was trying to do wireless power across nations and oceans not inductive coupling at short range. Magnetic coupling falls off at very short range compared to propagating waves.
And there's two sides to the cultural thing -- management is an equal player in the push-pull with unions and bears some responsibility for the things typically blamed on unions.
