Castle Bravo went wrong because back then they didn't understand how lithium actually worked. They used partly enriched one and that had much more punch than they expected.
Agree. Most visible in the comment section. It is now a condensed block like on all the other web sites out there. Really more harder to read, especially when you see the whole whitespace wasted on the right side.
I also ended up using NewsBlur and was also very happy to shell out some money for it. With the latest design it even doesn't look that horrible anymore. Plus it works almost like Google Reader and doesn't need some stupid browser plugin like Feedly.
* I have used OS X (and OS 9) and I never had to enter a CC into anything. Ever.
* One is delete the other way. There is an icon there
* Opt/Alt is the same, you can set that in iterm2 (and terminal)
* All F keys there -> I use them for the expose stuff.
* I have no problem with the num pad. It has a clear key and a , and . key. How awesome is that?
* I agree on a tons of other things (fullscreen sucks donkey balls in Lion, there is still no proper full screen window mode, this "+" thing still pisses me off, memory management is often shit as crap)
* Finder is shit as fuck and it gets worse with every release. Ever tried to do two actions at the same time, Finder is useless. Was not that way in Leopard, they fucked that up for good in Lion and I doubt they will ever fix that.
* btw type in path is cmd+shift+G
* Never used an Apple mouse, only normal ones with normal buttons.
* where is copy/paste not working? I never had a problem with that. Just remember cmd+shift+opt+v pastes without format
* yes, HFS+ is so old it still thinks its 1900 here. And again there is no sight to fix this old crap one
I have used XFS on several systems for about 9 to 10 years. I had some issues with it on one box, I had to run xfs_repair on it from time to time, but that was in the range of once every 3 years. The other systems are fine. But those are server boxes with battery backup hardware raid and UPS that will shutdown the box gracefully in case something goes bad with the power. XFS does not like "home" systems and if you just reboot your box you are likely to have data loss.
Currently I am deploying ext4 on my new systems, somehow XFS doesn't have that much speed advantage over ext4 as to have it in production anymore.
Yes, via the -e command. I wouldn't use rsync anyway different between two hosts.
Those non NTT Fiber services only work if you can directly put the Fiber in your house. So if you live in your one single home, no problem, if you live in a small Appartment block below the 4th floor, then it is sometimes possible. But if you live in a big Appartment block, unless there is a Fibre from Sony going in your block, this won't fly. In most Appartment blocks you have the last Meter (into your place) as normal copper. I do have Fiber, but I do not have a Fiber going into my place, I have my Router hooked up to the normal Telephone jack, and have 100Mbit. In my old place I had Fiber directly into my place, but that didn't change, that I only had 100Mbit there too.
There are rumors going around of having an update to 200Mbit, but I haven't heard anything in detail about this yet.
I use So-Net and compared to other providers here they are one of the most open ones which do not block anything.
- they had to restart one nuclear power plant in the south because they had not enough electricity to keep factories running
- east of japan is running every one of their old coal and their current LPG plants at maximum and imports billions yen worth of fossile fules every month
Of course Japan didn't fall back to a pre-industrial civilization, but if there is nothing done, it will no longer be a big industrial nation because it is just not economical feasable to run industry in a country where the gov has to support the electricity providers so they can buy the fuel to run the nation.
I, for one, am not happy to pay more to TEPCO
Both had the same problem with cargo doors that opened to the outside and had bad locking mechanisms with no warnings or anything if it didn't really lock at all. Two full DC-10 dropped out of the air because of this.
You can write shitty unreadable python code too. The fixed format layout of python doesn't really make it much better. Plus giving up on all the CPAN modules just to write python. I see no reason why.
Still I can go, buy the HK release for half the price of the japanese one and it will work.
Slackware - first steps into Linux
SUSE - because back than in Europe (Austria/Germany) it was the most popular distro
Mandrake - because my first works boss used it, also on servers
Redhat - after Mandrakes demise back to Redhat (before they went enterprise)
Gentoo - because it was all the fad, at the end a waste of time
Debian - since about 10 years now. Still the best, run it on servers when I run Gentoo on desktops, and then switched to Debian only
Part is right, that there is a lot of research to be done. But not because we never built one, but more because we forgot how to built one. The US had one running for quite some time.
