I'll buy that when you agree to take Justin Bieber back. Having him inflicted on the US is tantamount to an act of war.
Exactly, and when it comes to maintenance windows one should never forget Murphy. If something can go wrong it will, and being there with a console cable and a laptop or tablet to get into a problem device is a good thing.
What they DID NOT know, was the spying on their gov, which I have to say was surprising.
Yes, some of you will scream that I am racists, and yet, over and over and over, this occurs.
naw - read TFS again; xie's devving for Solaris. Good luck getting Solaris running on a pi/bone/whatever.
Maybe you should read TFS again instead since the submitter clearly states that they want a dedicated *Linux* based dev platform. There's no mention of running Solaris on it.
But the idea is to get builders to change how they build. Better insulation in homes. Use aerogel in windows. Fewer Windows. Likewise, geo-thermal HVAC is IDEAL for most new buildings, which really allows for low energy usage.
And yes, if you live in the northwest, then these are all things that you will want. That way, a minimum amount of solar panels will equal your annual HVAC.
In fact, one of our bigger wastes, are the buildings that we continue to build. That is why I have suggested elsewhere that we stop focusing on installing solar on current homes and instead, focus on making NEW places be efficient WRT HVAC. In fact, we should also require it on rentals. That stops the issue right away and allows us time to focus on slowing down the waste more.
BTW, I have also suggested elsewhere that we need to tax all goods based on where their parts come from and the CO2 emissions of those areas. But to normalize these areas, should be based on $ GDP/emissions. China has one of the lowests, while nations like sweden is one of the tops. Therefor it is better for us to get goods from Sweden, than from China. That will force nations like China to bring their emissions way down very quickly instead, of their continuing to build 2 new coal plants each week.
BUT, when going after innocent parties, that gets old.
