A few years ago I decided that all I wanted from my old audio gear was my turntable that I got in 1993. So I found a nice pre-amp online (DJ-Pre II) and connected it to my computer. Now I can still listen to records, but taking up 1/4 the space. Also nice since places like Amazon have been stocking new and older titles for a couple of years now.
We need more meat to become even smarter, yummy, fire up the BBQ and lets see what we can cook up tonight! http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=meatatarian
LTO4 also now supports encryption as of Aug 2011 via firmware upgrade. We made the switch at work last year for ISO compliance, and it buys us some time before we have to invest in the newer LTO5 or LTO6 drives.
Long time alcoholics tend to suffer from a duality within the mind, the one who wants to stay sober, and the other that wants to drink. LSD can cause a permanent splitting of the psychosis and the end result can be schizophrenia. So I wouldn't recommend trying this.
Since by then we won't be able to do anything that would utilize those speeds anyway. The way things are going, everything will be locked down tight.
Thanks for everything Rob, and best of luck to your future endeavours! I stumbled upon this site in 1998 and am still a daily reader. I would have to say half of my geek vocabulary was developed through this site, and other phrases as they came into being. I've moved around and lived in 3 different countries for IT work and showed everyone I met Slashdot, so it's been a nice constant companion on the crazy web. Slashdot just got a bit smaller today. Take care Rob!
I had to re-read that a couple of times. First time through I was thinking, yes most of us on here have limited lives to play video games. Then I realized you were referring to the amount of lives in the game haha.
I worked on a contract at a university for a psychology dept. The OCD prof suffered from it himself, the former gambler taught about addictions. The woman prof who taught early child development couldn't have kids of her own, etc etc.

"Dyson listened while the Terminator laid it all down. Skynet, Judgment Day, the history of things to come. It's not every day that you find out you're responsible for three billion deaths. He took it pretty well. "
I recently ordered a copy of 'Them Crooked Vultures' on Vinyl, sounds fantastic! With the Loudness Wars [ http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Loudness_wars ] going on for the last while, music is becoming harder to listen to with all the compression, you lose the dynamics of the recording. I've recently gotten back into vinyl because of this. My ears have been thanking me ever since!
Really, then how come Brazil was able to make the change? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ethanol_fuel_in_Brazil
Yeah, I even find it's hard to listen to a lot of newer albums for very long without my ears getting tired. On the other hand, if I listen to LP's I can listen to many in a row and not feel that way. The Loudness Wars are just ruining the way music is heard: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Loudness_wars
How about 1 monitor, many desktops/servers?
I also remember in 1993 you could get a WWW 'phonebook' which listed all the available websites in known existence. I would mainly log on to find more door games/apps for the BBS I was still running at the time. heh.
