Oookay, am sure it is "feasible" but if you have made a mistake, 'sorry you just killed everyone in the region.' Drop the mess in a volcano along with the Syrian brainiacs who thought chemical weapons were a good idea.
They seem to have forgotten a little defect. SSDs have a low failure rate, high speeds, okay prices, but everyone's scared of flash memory degradation after a number of writes. Some crappy one would get 1500 write cycles on a chip but OCZ ones get 9000 which, even at my high usage on a 128GB drive, is at least 8 years before it fries.
I am trying to recall any OEM (besides my company) putting an SSD on their desktop computers, seen 'em on netbooks and some notebooks of course. I would think an OEM would because if that computer only has a one year warranty, the SSD will last that long and since they want you to buy a new computer, often, it'd work for that cause.
By the way, seen the OCZ sticker that comes with their SSD drive? "My SSD is faster than your HDD" at least it makes me chuckle.
So, get out of Dodge!
Well actually, Dodge, Kansas, where that phrase originated, has an elevation of 2,493 ft (760 m) so I'd stay in Dodge.
I've got 15m of freeboard between my new house and credible tsunami run-up levels in this area
While 15 meters really is not that much for elevation, especially when talking about tsunamis, it also depends on what event triggered the tsunami and that location. I happen to reside in an area that has an elevation of 4,802 ft (1,463.6 m) so unless an asteroid hits the Pacific, am safe from all the high water issues.
Could be dangerous for people with heart problems...
Not if the shock was the same or less as that produced by a static charge. It is enough to get your attention but not kill you, well at least I have never heard of someone's pace maker quitting due to a static charge.
...I loved being off the grid for a week or three.
And that is why camping to remote areas is still so much fun. You need to know where to go and what you might expect when you get there (from animals to weather) and be prepared for whatever. But you are off the grid, unless you have a satellite phone.
It might be good efficiency, but having a single log in for everything is the absolute worst security model you can have.
The government is assuming everyone will be a part of the "single log in," especially criminals.
Even us old timers know that you don't put all your eggs in one basket.
And yet most all of Humanity is still on one planet...
