Until we reach a point where compute per watt stabilizes, it is highly unlikely that anyone would be interested in using old components to build a cluster.
The first clusters WERE 'old components'. Not all of us had budgets that allowed the latest technology. Some of us didn't HAVE a budget, just a roomfull of 'old components'.
I'm looking at M-Disc.
Still not sure how to handle reader obsolescence. Other than re-doing everything every 5-10 years.
Ah yes, extrapolating from one case to a generalization. Always good science!
WAIS 3? Is that a measure of how often you wash your hands? I'm to exasperated to google it...
... im not a flue shot kinda guy...
I'm not a "flue shot kinda guy" either. What with those chimney sized needles and all.
Not at all. To have that happen they have to prove that you're a physical danger to yourself or somebody else. Simply being eccentric, insane, or even being a criminal sociopath who defrauds people doesn't have a chance of landing you there.
My first thought to this is: "What country do you live in? Where reality has something to do with the court system?"
In my country (USA), everything depends on what the definition of the word 'is' is. And the only ones qualified to even discuss the issue are lawyers. Because, of course 'the truth' is 'vastly overated'.
we have the kind of government we do? And why, ah, some companies feel the need to dumb down computer interfaces?
Why is it, when we start (just start!) to rein in the mad excesses of the Democrats, we get dumped squarely into the ignorant excesses of the Republicans?
.... HOAs are completely up front about those things and if you don't read the bylaws before buying, you're a dumb motherfucker.
When it comes to your neighbors "bossing you around", NOBODY is completely "up font". You dumb motherfucker.
You beat me to, what seems to me to be, obvious rejoinders to the excuses given here. And did a MUCH better job than I could!
I would add that the US, given its melting-pot nature, is the target of every monoculture-country(TM) on this planet. For obvious reasons.
You would like that wouldn't you?
Would you like to participate in that invasion also?
