Exactly the opposite. Streams took easy to read and understand for loops used by every language on earth and replaced it with gibberish that you need to work through to understand, and is far more difficult top debug as there's no damn place to put a break point or print statement. They're banned everywhere I've heard of

I've worked at both as well. I'll take the open any day of the week. People are more accessible, you feel less like interfering if you talk to someone. Frequently you'll overhear a discussion that your input on is important. I feel an individual might get more done in some circumstances of private offices, but the team gets more done in an open one. And that's what's important. Especially if you're a team lead I would never choose an office over an open desk.

Submission + - ask Slashdot: Windows RAID / backup advice 2

An anonymous reader writes: I have approx 2TB of photos. currently sitting on 2 x 4TB "Intel Rapid Storage" RAID1ed discs. I'm about to move to a new PC.

a) keep these exactly as they are
b) move to "Storage Spaces"
c) break the RAID, and set up the second disc as a file-copied backup.

a — The current configuration is OK, but it's a pain if a raid re-sync is needed as it takes a long time for it to check 4TB

b — I've not used Storage Spaces before, but reports seem to show it's good: https://foxdeploy.com/2015/10/...

it even says in mirrored setup, SS beats HW, although write's take a hit. It's a Good Thing that the discs are 100% identical and removable and readable separately. Downside? unknown territory

c — would lose a (small) amount of resilience, but wouldn't suffer from the raid-sync issues, ideally a Mac-like "TimeMachine" backup would handle file histories.

Any recommendations?

Someone doesn't know their history. its you. Look at the wars america was in before 1940. For example- the Spanish-American war. Basically caused because we wanted some of Spain's stuff in the Carribean, and trumped up on an explosion in port that ended up being an accident.

The Mexican American war- because we wanted to move our southern border to the Rio Grande.

The War of 1812- multiple causes and may have happened anyway, but at least part was a desire to annex Canada.

The Indian Wars- all undeclared, but we took each tribe's land one at a time.

The US has been an imperialistic war monger from the beginning. We just kept it to our own continent until the 1900s.
