Raid drives are transparently removable and can be placed in a bank vault.

... by hiring Doug Crockford back.
Why would anybody let that happen?
Pretty sure they don't need "phones".
Nye is a dangerous undereducated idiot. Feynman was a scientist, Pauling was a scientist, Nye has a mech eng degree, a patent on ballet slippers, published no papers, his books were commercial efforts for Disney that had princesses on the cover and he's been a comedian for most of his life.
He reads what others write for him to present, he's a talking head who reads what he's paid to and does not abide by the principles of science.
My kids know more science than he does and he is the last person you want adjudicating anything to do with science.
I saw a 'gator right at the edge of the VAB parking lot last month. In a drainage ditch, up to the fence, cars parked right on the other side.
With luck, they'll start incorporating our radio transceivers. I hear that SpaceX flies with several USRPs now, so that's not completely unrealistic. That might be as close as I can get. Anyone who can get me a base invitation, though, would be greatly appreciated and I'd be happy to do some entertaining speeches while there. I need a base invite for Vandenberg, too. I got in to the official viewing site for the first try of the last launch (and that scrubbed too), but this next one is on Pad 6.
I was in Florida to speak at Orlando Hamcation and went to see the DISCOVR launch at Kennedy Space Center. I paid $50 to be at LC-39 for the launch, an observation tower made from a disused gantry on the Nasa Causeway between the pads and the Vehicle Assembly Building. A crawler was parked next door! A hot sandwich buffet, chips, and sodas were served. It was cold and windy! I watched for a few hours and unfortunately the launch scrubbed due to high stratospheric winds.
The next day, Delaware North Corporation, which operates tourism at KSC, decided not to open LC-39 or the Saturn 5 center for the launch. This was the third launch attempt and I guess they decided most people had left. I was annoyed.
The closest beach was going to be closed in the evening, it's a sensitive ecological area. I ended up seeing the launch from Jetty Park. This turned out not to be such a great location, the tower wasn't visible at all and the first 10 seconds of the rocket in flight were obscured before we saw it over a hill.
What's a better viewing location?
Okay, good work. But in their model, do they make the assumption that everyone on the continent is trying to make for Glacier National Park? Because, now that they've told everyone that's what they should do, I think their model should account for that.
This is why we have logic analyzers.
I used to write hard drive firmware.
Here's what I would do: pull the controller board off a drive. Write a piece of software that emulates the physical drive to take it out of the equation.
You have to find a way to read the firmware. If you have to desolder a chop ad read it that's ok. Do this to many drives and eventually you'l find one of these that isn't like the other.
Now figure out what it's doing.
The firmware on those drives is not in the slightest bit complicated it's actually very straightforward.
Old SCSI drives circa late 80s is where I'd start looking.
Ghosts in the machine - shades of Draft-Higgs. Look it up.
If you get rid of the tld the dld becomes the tld and the problem hasn't gone anywhere.
Is there one anybody's ever heard of?
