I'm saying that the sunk costs of a phat box to try some of these stylings offline, then push the configuration to AWS, at least seems less risky.
However, yes, we are on the steady decline, growing a little steeper every cycle.
Wait, I thought you were just giving it the plus ça change, plus c'est la même chose. What's it gonna be, man?
If you want an accusation, I think you're a defender of statism.
No, really: if it was MY OWN PARTY, it would be handle along substantially different lines, trust me.
So why do you get that privilege but I do not? You insist that I am part of an established party while demanding that I view you otherwise.
I wouldn't touch WD.
WD basically invented the hard drive and used to be awesome. Then they started selling garbage. After having a number of their drives fail and seeing online reports of the same, i no longer consider them an option. Same story with Epson for printers. It make me wonder why these great companies decided to destroy the one thing they had: A brand that stood for quality.
It did occur to me that, by pushing non-sensitive data to the cloud, though, one could really cut down on local storage requirements.
Booted up my Fedora box at work this morning but instead of starting normally it put me in emergency mode with a message to check the logs. On the whole I'm very pleased with this development. It gave me a prompt to give it the root password and then I could view the logs with journalctl from there.
I follow a similar pattern. I went from an S to the S3.
This was in part due to cost. If I am going to spend $600 on a phone, I treat it like any other computer purchase and I expect to get a minimum of 3 years out of the device.
Now that there are phones available that are of almost the same quality, at a much lower price I'll probably make a move - but not for at least a year. While I waited to repair this one I was using a Moto G and I loved it. The screen isn't as big, and it was a relief to get back to my Galaxy in that regard. But I'd say otherwise the Moto G was just as good but it cost less than $200.
People talk about the race to the bottom - and there are some awful Android devices out there but there are also some really nice devices that don't cost such a huge premium and I like to think of them as being part of the race to the middle. The point where I get maximum value.
It's all on c.l.j, if you're willing to do a bit of digging.
I daresay if there was any substance to your point (and I've read the jQuery source at some depth around the 1.7 era) then you'd've proffered a URL to go with your FUD, no?
On the one hand, I don't doubt that there is substantial truth to the litany of allegations. Even if you want to try to be an Ollie North apologist, he and old "photographic memory" Poindexter really jacked it through the roof.
However, the list is hardly complete:
- Paul Wolfowitz, then Director of Policy Planning at the Department of State, was caught jaywalking in DC. "That's what you do on J Street," said Paul, "J walk."
- David Stockman is mentioned as having been indicted, but they omit the charge of picking his nose from rap sheet.
- Finally, that most infamous rogue of all, Rumsfeld, was too evil for even the Reagan Administration, and was busy cooking Nutrasweet to destroy our Precious Bodily Fluids.
If anything, the moral of this story is that if you concentrate power, Bad Things happen. So what are you doing to help deconstruct Leviathan, sir?
