Glorious exposition, comrade!
Actual former insurance adjuster here - automobile property damage claims. I would think a drone would be sufficient for initial appraisals.
Here's how it works for auto claims - an appraiser makes a fairly cursory initial inspection of VISIBLE damage. They don't (usually) pop the hood, they don't (usually) lift the car up. They walk around the car wherever it is parked, note down what they see, and do an initial estimate.
Now, maybe four times out of five, when the actual repair work is done, additional damage is found. Like, the mechanic pops off the old bumper and finds some crushed pins, something like this. A supplemental appraisal is then generated - that's where you get the actual, and most likely final cost of the repair work. I've seen cases where a third supplement gets generated, but that was fairly uncommon in my experience.
I can't read the story - it is already Slashdotted.
But Arch is notorious for breakage. Lots of it.
I tried Arch myself on my own laptop for about a year. There were at least a dozen times where running what should have been a simple system update rendered things unusable. Sometimes it was just a few simple programs that ceased to function. Sometimes it was X itself failing to launch, leaving me at a command prompt. All of it took a fair amount of fiddling to fix, and eventually I got tired of it.
I switched over to Manjaro. The same laptop has been running that for at least two years now and hasn't had a single instance of breakage.
Why would I pay $500 for this when I can pay literally under $50 for a VGA projector on Amazon?
I assume that Roblimo is invested in this somehow?
Why would you suggest PIG DISGUSTING closed source software when there are so many quality open-source solutions, including:
Arch and its derivatives use SystemD too.
My long-term data is kept on NAS4Free box running ZFS RAID1.
If any piece of hardware fails, I can replace it and be right back in business. Nobody is going to hack into it. If I lose internet connectivity in any way, I still have full access.
There's a pretty solid (if somewhat offensive) guide for noobs on 4chan's
Oh, you mean like Nickelback?
Its based out of the US and A.
As such, I have to assume it is pre-backdoored.
My mail server is set to reject anything without a FQDN (a fully qualified domain name). Do you have one of those?
You've set up SPF, but have you set up DKIM? If not, do so. DMARC too while you're at it.
Pale Moon has been available in x64 for a long time now, and doesn't have advertisements bundled into it.
I'll just stay put.
I just love the classic Atari 2600 box art! I would love to buy an artbook of it - possibly posters and/or shirts as well.
A government spying on another government = okay
A government spying on another country's people = not okay
A government spying on its own people = OMGWTFBBQ
Still no consumer-level octo-core? I'll continue to stick with my Q9450 then. I'm not willing to spend thousands on a Xeon.
Before you ask, I do video work as a hobby. I often utilize all four of my cores at 100% capacity for 6+ hours on end when performing filtering and encoding. No, I am not interested in the AMD FX and their half-cores.
Get it together, Intel. I will buy as soon as you sell.
