I think Afghanistan has a relatively loose immigration policy (or at least the use to until recently).
Forget that! We need to go directly to the source and put the panels on the sun!
Won't work. What happens at night?
We need Solar Panels on the Moon too!
Building Management I work in wired the building for our local Cable Co. They wanted to provide free basic cable. We passed an insisted on free internet instead.
But then we're a private company, not a government bureaucracy.
Its not a matter of shutting down television, but revoking their franchise, and allowing competitors access.
Another thing I do is send my taxes in a month early, in case I make a mistake, they will let me know instead of fining me. If you're getting a refund that doesn't matter though (because you won't be fined for being late if you're getting a refund, April 15th is not actually the deadline for a refund).
Actually it can make a difference, but you are correct, it doesn't affect how much money you're due (if you have a legitimate refund due you).
IANACPA, but my wife is (and prepares personal tax "during the season").
In some states (and the Fed), the pool of money available for refunds often gets depleted mid-way through the tax season. Submitting early gets your refund processed before the state/fed need to replenish these funds, which can sometimes get you your money faster.
No, but they might have spent $3.9B so they can say its CPU is not "Made in China" and have a Chinese company "procure" the designs and start making the next gen chips based on the tech, while also having to worry about grey market versions of Samsung and Apple devices that utilize the processor.
If they can control a key component of the device (and "made in america" certainly provides that), then they can minimize grey market goods impact on their branded devices by potentially relegating them to an inferior parts chain.
Oddly I finally am catching up on back episodes of Person of Interest.
Just saw "Prophets" which contained a few clips of failed AI attempts
From the article:
Google already has a separate lease for another portion of the former air base, where it wants to build a second campus. Page and Brin have also used the Moffett runways for their collection of private jets, under another lease arrangement that's been criticized by some watchdog groups who say NASA gave the executives a sweetheart deal.
Because they are essentially renting the space next door to their new campus, and hanger space?
and part of the settlement was that Apple Computer Corp agreed to stay out of the Music business
Now you know how the Mars Orbiter felt
Synology has some nice RAID enclosures.
Get two with multiple drives and they can also be set up to sync with each, creating your own little data cloud (multiple locations, w/RAID 5 per location, sync with each other via internet). Only problem is making sure there is sufficient bandwidth between them.
Thanks for the links. Was an interesting listen.
No. They'll just switch to shorter support life cycles so consumers will have fewer choices.
"Do you want 8 or 9?"
"I want 7!"
"I'm sorry, we officially supporting 7 last month. Your choices are 8 or 9."
So they're throwing out the new Chair interface?
... Tape to Tape
If you're looking purely at longevity of storage and reliability, Tape backup is still the way to go.
Baring that, spread backup copies around, and make sure to keep redundant copies on several flash drives?
