ZFS is a memory hog. I wouldn't advise it. I've seen cases where the file system cannot be imported (mounted) at boot, and that situation is not one that you want when all your important data is in that pool. In general, the FS is poor in performance. Sure, if you value long term data retention ZFS is great, but so is tape storage. Why not just use ext/xfs for live data and tape for historical, then you can keep your RAM and performance. This way you get to store your archives somewhere (like you need to with snapshots anyway) just incase your system catches fire and the eggs in one basket gets destroyed.
Sorry, you lost me at 5year investment.
The *vast* majority of drivers for Linux are, in the Linux kernel. It has been upwards of ten years since I needed to get a driver from the internet. I think that was for a SB Live card that needed emu10k, it didn't take long before that was included in the Linux kernel. What was the other thing, perhaps it was winmodems. Unsurprisingly they needed drivers and gave poor performance anyway. Nope. I can't see your argument for it being internet dependant. On the other hand, how often do you have to go off to third parties for your drivers on a windows system? Perhaps all the time since there is a lack of generic drivers on windows. Perhaps this is why windows is full of crap and malware due to unreliable third party drivers.
True, but also from their point of view "if they don't even show us who they are, they're not worth hiring".
I'm with you on the ditching facebook, or never signing up though, and as for linkedin, yeah, that's a pile of junk too. It's just social climbing and I'm not one of those.
You're doing it wrong, use something like https://www.usenix.org.uk/cont...
I think what you're referring to is https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/..., time being proportional to the number of heads on a project.
I'm still using boot floppies, but they're virtual and mounted via an HP ILO... Not touched an actual floppy since, no, I can't remember when. They were great until you got pocket fluff/grit behind the gate and transferred it unto the drive. SD cards are a suitable replacement, though easily lost and are perhaps on par bad block wise.
One thing we should commend though, well done on keeping your files small enough to fit on floppies. That's pretty much impossible after a few revisions of a Word document after it collects all that system information.
So, what if you wanted to filter out all the W's - can your machine do that? What about skittles, did you want to limit yourself to one type of sweet?
There's freedom of speech, but then there's speech that's so offensive that no eyes should read it. It's misused. Totally. Some audio cds have to carry a notice to warn parents/buyers that the contents is unsuitable for children. Welcome to 2014, the internet is a scary place, watch your children whilst they use it - don't arrest every user who posts something they may regret later as there was a humour failure.
People on the streets couldn't defend themselves as they were hit like #pinballs.
It was a prediction of the future, so don't be shocked that this one is close to the truth. Just don't be surprised that room 101 is full of web logs of all the bad things you said on the internet.
Or could it be that the customer can't produce a false claim of unreasonable force after the incident?
I'd have three Mormons too.
