Comment: Wait... what cabling? (Score 1) 384 384

So he's going to run up to 16 cables to 8 peds of 2 pumps each...? I guess if you're OK with doing that each time, sure...
Also, if it's only you/your company doing these, why can't you change the IP's on the pumps? Sure, if there was some other application or device needing them to be on a set IP, that would nix that idea.... but as said... they're not networked anyway.

+ - Cutting Edge Equipment : Good Performance, or Good GUI? Both?

irving47 writes: As more and more server-level systems are coming from overseas, the development teams can't always be expected to know perfect English spellings... Having a Mac or even Windows-like finish to their GUI's seems unreasonable... But at what point does it start to concern you and what are the key indicators that this is a quality problem bound to rear its head in performance issues, not just a few web pages that only you, the sysadmin, are going to see? One example I've seen is Security Camera DVR's I've set up for customers because of the pricing... The interfaces have misspellings on nearly every page, but they work, for the most part.
So, even in higher-end, commercial settings, GUI "mistakes" : Indication of changing times, or a warning sign of equipment that's just too cheap?

Yeah, he had lost the lower half of his arm. House set up a box with a mirror in it that when both arms were inserted, made it look like he had two complete arms/hands.
When House told him to clench as tight as he could, and soon after relax, I guess his brain finally told the bad limb to stop clenching or doing whatever it thought it was supposed to be doing.

Republican here Ralph Wiggam is righ- umm.. Correct. :)
One thing Obama's administration has gotten right is an FCC that is at least TRYING for net neutrality. I own stock in AT&T and think what they are Verizon are doing is a bunch of crap.

Yeah, but a business owner that receives one of those letters is still going to fear going to court... If it were me, I'd fear the size and integrity of the trolls in question. What if the suit takes MANY months or years? I still have to pay lawyers in the meantime... When I DO come out victorious, how long will it be before a patent troll is on the up-and-up and pays the fees in question? Or will they just disappear into the night via some fakey bankruptcy or dissolution by a parent company?

This is the part I don't get. You're right. Isn't it pretty well spelled out in the EULA's that you're giving away your right to name your first born, let alone any "privacy" in the email? Add to that the fact that the feds recently said, "screw you, you don't have any expectation of privacy on these email accounts because the servers aren't under your direct control." Wiretapping implies surveillance without knowledge... In a lot of states only one party need know their call is being monitored to make it legal.

Verizon's smartphones are already unlocked... ATT will unlock as soon as we've paid for the devices in full.
I'm probably over-generalizing.... A mandate like this is going to prompt them to find a way to screw us over. Remember what happened with the portable numbers? We all ended up with a $1.75 "regulatory recovery fee" on our bills for quite a while.
