If it stays just archival storage, something that is desperately needed....

This is too little, too late.

Anything that requires me to be physically present to swap media during a backup isn't even up for consideration.

300Gb of data per disc means I'd have to swap discs a dozen times to back up my current pile of data data. Not happening.

By the time it reaches 1Tb per disk I'll have even more data to back up. Half a dozen swaps? Still not happening. I want to set the backup going then go to bed while it does its thing.

Sure, but there's no need for them to sit in our chairs or wear human sneakers and designer jeans.

Allowing a bit of leeway on the exact size/shape of the parts could make everything else a lot better (and cheaper).

In an environment where stairs are just the "emergency exit" (ie. most factories, hospitals, office buildings, apartments, etc.) then adding bipedal legs is pointless.

. . so people cant wear skirts anymore? Sharia Law is over there . . . .

What about windy days? Can we outlaw them, too.

And escalators. They often give people an eyeful of thigh (and not all of it is pretty, ew!)

Many upskirts will show less than a miniskirt or booty shorts. How will that factor in to the new law? Will the length of the skirt be taken into account?

So many questions....

DirectX11 was back ported to Vista.

The reason DirectX 10/11 was not backported to XP was not because of mean old bad microsoft but rather WinXP is such an obsolete archaic OS that is fundamentally different.

Weird that the system requirements for DX11 suddenly changed later on - to allow XP!


Some people might think that it was mean old bad microsoft after all...that the "obsolete archaic OS" thing was just a lie.
