...short story "I Always Do What Teddy Says".
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
Hardly seems worth the bother of going to all the trouble that would be necessary to put the media server in one of the worst possible and least accessible locations one could choose.
I'd almost rather put it in the attic. It would need more cooling, but at least you could get to it.
Is your crawl space accessible from inside the house?
...that certainly bites.
It's like there's an entire industry convinced that listener fatigue is a good thing.
...to include TiVos and their power supplies, then "capacitor plague" is an even bigger factor, although, again, hard drive problems are prominent as well.
...I suspect my results would have been quite different, especially with regard to Pentium II era motherboards.
I tend to re-lube fans with a mixture of light grease and light oil, and that seems to extend their life considerably.
But the biggie is hard drives.
The club or dance hall or whatever paid to license the music for people to listen to while dancing, but they didn't pay to license the music to be used in recordings of that activity, so the person recording the activity gets to pay (one way or the other).
Post the videos without a soundtrack if it's just the dancing that's important.
They have to find a way to remove all the Obama cooties from it, in a way that lets them brag on themselves and vilify him, without actually getting anyone angry enough at them to get out and vote for someone else, and they have to keep their corporate masters happy at the same time.
...that the last thing the insurance companies want is to be deprived of all of those new customers they recently acquired.
Look at it from their point of view. People have to buy their product, and if necessary the government will help them to pay for it before it lets them not buy it.
Atlas and Fountainhead a decade or two ago, and was struck by how someone had managed to get comic books published without any pictures.
I think a certain Florida congressman summed up their health care plan quite succinctly.
"And the municipalities are nullifying the will of private citizens."
Every time the politicians running a municipality enact something desired by less than 100% of the residents it's "nullifying the will of private citizens", but it's also enforcing the will of other private citizens. If it does something which nullifies the will of a majority of the residents, said politicians will find themselves replaced come the next election.
Almost all of the members of the NC legislature are not residents of Wilson and I daresay the ones who voted for that law were more concerned with what TWC wanted than what Wilsonites did.
I feel reasonably sure that the elected officials in Wilson who got Greenlight started were residents of Wilson and a lot more in touch with the wishes for faster broadband of their fellow residents, wishes which TWC and Embarq weren't interested in dealing with until Wilson started Greenlight, and then, as I recall hearing at the time, all of a sudden they started whining about how they were going to "real soon now".
In my neighborhood in a different NC city, where we're only about 3 blocks from a switching station, I heard "real soon now" about DSL as Carolina Telephone and Telegraph became Sprint became Embarq became CenturyLink. At some point I gave up and went with cable modem.
The bad news is that your property taxes will double to pay for it.
He wants to believe it, therefore it must be true.
Allowing the FCC to nullify state law sounds pretty damn outrageous. I.E. it has Barack Obama's fingerprints all over it and deserves to go down in flames in the courts. As for allowing towns to set up their own ISP's, I don't see a problem with it as long as the town citizenry gets a vote and they don't go deep into debt and ask to get bailed out by the state later. What towns ought to do though is make it possible for companies to build or improve their networks, something the FCC can't pretend to have any control over.
Actually the FCC is preventing states from nullifying the will of municipalities.
Make no mistake, these laws, no matter what rationales are offered, are only about protecting outfits like Comcast and Time Warner Cable from competition, and keeping certain areas reserved for them until they feel like getting around to providing service in them.
So we should let them pipe it down to a Gulf of Mexico port and put it on a ship because nothing bad will happen to those ships?
The safest option is to let Canada transport the stuff across Canada to a Canadian port.
