Comment Re:I have done this hike (Score 1) 18

I just climbed it for the second time in late June. There was still plenty of snow and the LTE network was already mostly live on the Fujiyoshida side.

There is no train to the midpoint of climb. You can get pretty close to the mountain on a train but you need to take a bus or car or a long hike if you want to get to the fifth station.

It's far more likely the loan contract is written such that the lender would call the loan at some point during the decline in value and force him to liquidate the collateral and then some to satisfy the debt.

Now if the stock crashed in a short span (matter of days) then it's possible he could escape the debt because they couldn't force liquidation in time to recover any real value. For a company like Facebook that isn't entirely unthinkable but it is unlikely in the current climate.

Thank you for creating Slashdot

I know you had plenty of help along the way but as a wise person once said - ultimately, all we have to offer to each other is ourselves. You definitely gave more than your share of time and energy to making plenty of people happier. You suffered fools with class and you should be proud of what you have done.

Good luck

The NS glue records in the .com TLD are 172,800 seconds (2 days) but that has nothing to do with IPv6 day.

The actual IPv6 DNS records being advertised today are things like www.cisco.com (TTL 30 seconds), www.cisco.com (TTL 300 seconds), www.google.com (TTL 300 seconds) so backing them out isn't a big deal or something that needs a lot of lead time.
