awww someone "just wasn't a good test taker" i see.
I mean somehow I doubt better access to broadband is going to solve Mississippi's education problems. I'm willing to bet Massachusetts kids were trouncing Mississippi kids long before the internet came along.
well according to the supreme court corporations = people and money = free speech so at least the "people" have their "free speech"
yep. really disappointed in silicon valley nerds if the above article is true.
high five, Al.
we agree that responsible energy management is a problem and individuals acting alone won't make a difference long term? sounds like a sensible gentleman.
uhhh maybe people who are in favor of energy conservation correctly realize that an individual acting alone to conserve power is pointless and insignificant given the scale of the problem they are worried about, while political policies, protesting or speaking out might actually have a measurable positive effect.
i could go live a energy-neutral lifestyle as a hermit in the woods and it would do no good in the long run. maybe it's naive, but working for political policies that support energy conservation seems to have far more potential to address the problem than a thousand recluses.
the problem with tape is by the time you can retrieve the data you're interested in, it no longer matters.
that reminds me
hey thanks for sharing your anecdotal experience as if it carries any weight whatsoever compared to actual controlled experiments and statistics.
for comparison, I've owned 8 and no failures yet. I have a raid0 array of SSDs upstairs that has been working flawlessly since 2008. an aberration maybe. anecdotal evidence works like that.
has anyone tried this with platter drives? would it simply take too long?
it's hard for me to judge whether this is more or less data than a platter drive will typically write in its lifespan. I feel like it's probably a lot more than the average drive processing in its lifetime. and anyway, platter drive failure might be more a function of total time spent spinning or seeking or simply time spent existing for all I know.
let me guess -- it has one generic all-purpose object type that does everything, and all classes must be submitted to the Apple Class Store, approved, and downloaded before being instantiated.
yay! i'm going to memorize as many digits as i can of the Rule of Three!
