Shite? Seriously? Postgres handles data more safely than MySQL. It has less risk of getting taken over by a giant like Oracle. It's fast. It's Free. Are you just trolling or what?
I call straw man. The majority of the predictions indicate overall warming trends- not a neutral result.
The point is that one model fits the data particularly well.
Well, since patent lifetimes are 20 years, that's only $5,880,000 per person assuming that they live for that long. I wonder how much it cost to develop - it seems at nearly $6 million per person they easily stand to recoup their costs and make a sick profit.
While I enjoy the magazine, it's commonly "out there". It's like the Popular Mechanics of science magazines - lots of cool stuff that probably won't ever happen/exist.
mod up please. this should be an extreme duh for anyone concerned about this.
I should also mention that I use the Linkstation in a RAID-1. You might get better speeds with a RAID-0 or jbod, but then of course you don't get the data protection.
I currently own a Buffalo Linkstation NAS, it gets about 20 MB (megabytes) of traffic/sec on reads max, which isn't all that great but at least it's into GigE speeds. The web interface is decent, and since it supports samba and ftp it should work fine with OSX.
I also have tried the HP Media Vault (their small linux NAS), but I found that when I put a second drive in it would over-heat and turn off. The user interface sucked too. I didn't get a chance to benchmark its speeds before I returned it.
