By this same logic shouldn't we be arresting the CEO of baseball bat companies because someone could use one to assault someone, not to mention say gun manufacturers, knife companies etc...
I started using the name 'Bob' at the local Starbucks because of the pronunciation issue, not to mention I am a wee bit paranoid.
Just because I am paranoid DOESN'T mean they aren't after me.
After something like 20 years I finally found a system that won't run Debian unstable right now. My Panasonic Toughpad FZ-G1 magnesium tablet + iKey Jumpseat magnesium keyboard. Systemd and GDM break. Bought (for less than full price) because I am a frequent traveler and speaker and really do need something you can drop from 6 feet and pour coffee over have it keep working.
But because of this bug I have ubuntu at the moment, and am not having fun and am eager to return to Debian.
People will flock to buy stuff and invest in this company which markets and sells goods manufactured almost exclusively in China and then have the nerve to complain about the US foreign trade deficit. We the stupid, blind and thoughtless Americans, brought it upon ourselves, and continue to do so, all the while blaming it on Obama, Congress or whatever other fool is in office. We get what we deserve I guess...
Hm. The covenant of Noah is about two paragraphs before this part (King James Version) which is used for various justifications of slavery and discrimination against all sorts of people because they are said to bear the Curse of Ham. If folks wanted to use the Bible to justify anything ISIS says is justified by God's words in the Koran, they could easily do so.
18 And the sons of Noah, that went forth of the ark, were Shem, and Ham, and Japheth: and Ham is the father of Canaan.
19 These are the three sons of Noah: and of them was the whole earth overspread.
20 And Noah began to be an husbandman, and he planted a vineyard:
21 And he drank of the wine, and was drunken; and he was uncovered within his tent.
22 And Ham, the father of Canaan, saw the nakedness of his father, and told his two brethren without.
23 And Shem and Japheth took a garment, and laid it upon both their shoulders, and went backward, and covered the nakedness of their father; and their faces were backward, and they saw not their father's nakedness.
24 And Noah awoke from his wine, and knew what his younger son had done unto him.
25 And he said, Cursed be Canaan; a servant of servants shall he be unto his brethren.
26 And he said, Blessed be the Lord God of Shem; and Canaan shall be his servant.
27 God shall enlarge Japheth, and he shall dwell in the tents of Shem; and Canaan shall be his servant.
STK at the enterprise level agrees to pay the fines levied by the feds if data written to their tapes inside their silos, while under their high end service contract fail within 12 months of writing, provided they are stored by a certified off-site storage company, such as Iron Mountain. While that is not a data guarantee it comes as close as you can get. That is why critical application data gets a full backup, as well as incrementals every day come hell or high water. The cost is enormous but is part of doing business...
Actually yes I have but, perhaps I phrased it poorly, many types media are guaranteed for up to 7 years, but none that I've ever dealt with will guarantee the data stored for more than 12 months without a rewrite.
FTA you referenced...
Disks used in the test are REQUIRED to less than 12 month old and obtained directly from the manufacturer or thru known distribution channels.
The tests spanned less than 30 days, far short of the 12 months I spoke of and much less than the 7 YEARS federal requirements for bank data storage require. Not to mention the very small, relatively speaking size of the disk compared to the VAST amount of data required to be stored.
No backup media in use manufactured by ANY company is guaranteed for more than 12 months. While the media may have a 7 year life span the data on it NEEDS to be renewed at least once every 12 months and failure to do so abrogates nearly every warranty. I worked for a large bank and dealt extensively in federally mandated offsite Contingency Operations and Recovery and learned one thing, backups without recovery exercises are next to useless if you are actually seeking said protections rather than just meeting the bare minimum requirements set forth. If you really value the videos you've gone to such trouble to back-up then periodically you need to verify they still work and view them or you are just performing an exercise in rote time wasting.
A simple and very secure offsite storage answer is a bank safe deposit box. Put your movies on a thumb drive and stash it with your life insurance policy and other 'stuff' in a box at your bank. Relatively cheap or maybe even free depending on your bank, very likely local with standard access times to make recovery easy.
