You know, I honestly don't care anymore. If there's a war brewing over how to deliver media content over the web and into our homes, fuck it. At this point, perhaps the only winning move is to not play. I have better things to do with my time anyways.
Just my 2 cents.
Security through obscurity!
For the victim, death of the criminal brings an element of closure. There is -zero- chance of them coming back to haunt the victim; both in jail and out of jail. And that's really what the death penalty serves; both justice and closure for the victim/s involved.
If he raped, stole, did drugs, mugged someone, I bet he would get far less time. There are even whole groups of people that get arrested over 60+ times!!!
Don't hack. To do so might mean maximum prison in solitary confinement. You think I'm joking, but that's how afraid these clueless people are. They view hackers as some magic wizards that can open cell doors with thought alone.
It's a quote from The Matrix. The name 'Morpheus' should have clued in the idiots that modded this down.
Cypher: You know, I know this steak doesn't exist. I know that when I put it in my mouth, the Matrix is telling my brain that it is juicy and delicious. After nine years, you know what I realize?

The Gulf of Mexico scrubs our smog out thanks to the wind. But if we were in a basin like LA, we would be in trouble. Although cars have been improving in emission standards over the last 10 years. So pollution has been holding its own even though our population has been growing at near terrifying rates year-over-year. The only license plate I haven't seen is one from Hawaii.
I think this was demoed on The Next Step with Richard Hart show on the Discovery Channel back in the early 90s. Or was that Beyond 2000? Anyways, yes, I saw that hosted on one of those two shows.
Will the African elephant be a large enough surrogate mother, or will this baby mammoth have to be delivered premature due to its size. If it's the latter, I'm guessing a pre-planned stay in some animal ICU box?
Duh, it's politics. You define the crisis thereby having the power to engineer an infinite number of solutions. It's a method of empowering over others in the form of perpetual dependency via victimhood.
Kind of a slippery slope though. Sure it makes sense for most vaccines, but the bigger idea of "if you don't follow our medical advice, you don't get coverage" could lead to all other sorts of unintended outcomes
It's not a slippery slope at all. It's a fucking cliff! When you grant the Government the power to manage a single-payer healthcare system, you grant them the power to legislate any and all forms of activity and substances that would effect "your" health. Which is a misnomer because "your" health is really "our" health. When you cost us money, you cost the tax payer money. Welcome to the hive.
Driving? I much rather play sports on Mars! Jump higher (almost 3x), leap longer...
The "RED" drives you see on the market are no different from standard hard drives, except their firmware will give up trying to recover such a read error after just a few seconds, before low end RAID systems have a chance to kick the drive out due to unresponsiveness.
It's called TLER. And fuck WD for segmenting this market. On some of their older drives (raptors), there used to be firmware setting to enable/disable TLER. I'm pretty sure Hiatchi (IBM) drives still makes this user selectable. Yes, WD is on my personal shit-list of drives not to buy.
I've never ran into a UBE in a RAID5. But then again, that's because I've always used Dell or HP machines that have Patrol Reading on the RAID card. It's proactive checking/correcting when the volumes is at a minimal use. It's frequency of checking is also a user changeable option is most cases.
No. The problem with RAID5 is that should one drive fail, and second drive could fail while in the rebuild process. That's because rebuilding stresses all the remaining drives. If one of them in the array is already on the cusp of failing, a rebuild could push it over the edge. Thus losing the entire volume. RAID6 is a waste in that it's N-2 drives of capacity lost. But when you have to be sure (and damned sure) of reliability and availability, it's worth looking into. Exceedingly so for a SAN.
You could pay the Chinese 50 billion just to install scrubbing technologies. That *alone* would clean up more pollution and save lives around the world.
Kiss your keyboard goodbye!
