Do you mean the JEDEC standard for semiconductor memories ? The first hard drive shipped was 5,000,000 characters. (At 7 bits/character.)
Like this one?
In a nutshell, the smaller production runs make this type of drive more than twice as expensive as two regular drives, with similar performance for independent workloads. (But if you have a particular workload, you may benefit.)
'Renewable' fuels are a misnomer. The sun will run out of fuel too sometime.
But the sun is renewable. Where do you think our current Sun came from? Recycled stars.
Clearly mountain climbing bends straight edges; because the horizon is flat* at the bottom. Maybe it's a property of wood at high altitude? B-)

In order to see a real change you really need a few "killer apps".
You're right: this would be the perfect oven for the budding serial killer. Set dial to "cremate" and you're done!
Have you researched an Aga? It's always on—solves both your problems.*
* You didn't list cost and controllability. B-)
Here's another good reason to use joe (jmacs for me).

I snidely disparage your use of joe. I use jmacs! Much better*. B-)
* In the sense that my fingers are not lost when I come across a system that only has emacs installed. Otherwise joe's great.
The series of Seeed oscilloscopes are a bit clunky, but otherwise reasonable.
