except if they do nothing (or next to it) they will almost certaintly make less profit than if they implement agressive anti-fraud measuers, so "you goddamn better believe they'll do everything in their power to ensure that they can reach that" maximal profit "state"
Nice anecdote, but I doubt that it's representative.
The vast majority of systems are mounted with short standoffs (6in) to the roof surface. Changing to a tracker would probably cost double or more. You save massively on installation costs when you can take advantage of west/south/east facing inclined planes that roofs represent. Also consider that many customers have upwards of two dozen modules, so it's no small feet to move all of them. The reason that systems face south is to maximize overall production. The best solution is to combine this with a storage system so that all that great production can be buffered and meted out as needed over the course of a whole day.
Define large enough doses. I know people that have literally driven a million miles under the influence of "large doses." Drawing comparisons with driving under the influence of alcohol is pure folly, as nearly everything about marijuana is different than alcohol.
All forms of commercial driving require special licensing, except this gray area that companies like Uber and Lyft have created/exploited. The simple fact is commercial drivers are on the road far more and special considerations need to be made to account for that.
Have you heard? Those FreeBSD devs sure eat their own dog food!
If you're going to talk about design and machines rattling themselves apart then you might look to the design of mills for cutting metal.
These guys are practically falling over themselves to stress how robust their printer is and you are actually suggesting fishing line? Stop trolling please.
I just use phone/email instead
You just figured out why "non-profit" is wishy-washy
... people don't work for free and non-profits pay people so at what point are you hiding profits in people's salaries?
how hard is it to not look at all, even without a piece of technology distracting you?
Sorry that your companies safety policies didn't expose you to the concept of respirator fit-testing. When I was working near asbestos, or even potentially near asbestos (unknown attics) we were required to get fit-tested for our respirators. Whose anecdote wins?
Google employees that work in Mountain View should live in/near Mountain View.
Environmentally friendly is when Google employees don't live in SF and work in Mountain View a few dozen miles away. THAT is the core issue here.
It is absolutely ridiculous to avoid parking your car in the garage for fear of it catching on fire while in the garage. The odds of that happening are tiny.
