To quote the ministerial adviser from a well-known British poltical satire:
"Something must be done. This is something. Therefore, this must be done."
I have Linux servers that I rarely reboot (and they usually spend more time booting the BIOS than booting Linux with SysV or Systemd).
My main PC is a Windows PC and I reboot it less frequently than the servers, because I cannot back up the "state" (that is, open programs, open files, window positions, open connections), while the servers reboot and autostart all that I need, I just have to ssh to them again when I need to.
I have a HTPC that I shut down when not in use, and I installed an SSD after its hard drive started acting up, but it doe not really speed up the boot process (that is, that PC is already at the login prompt when my TV "bots" and my amplifier warms up), but it makes it a bit faster after that.
I have UPS power for about an hour (more if I shut down a couple of the server in an effort to preserve the main PC running), but even if I need to reboot my main PC, I really do not care that it takes 5 minutes to boot as opposed to 1 minute, because I then spend 30 minutes restoring the "state".
For a laptop, the boot time is a bit more important, but I usually hibernate it and as such do not particularly care how long it takes to reboot (as long as it is under, say, 5 minutes).
When one has almost no money, one usually spends that money on food and cheap clothes instead of TVs. If one has no money, well...
You think you could get rid of the useless sponges if you had guns? If you do, take a look at the US and ponder again.
You know a country that isn't?
While I did not have a lot of problems with SysV or Systemd, I wish I could make Systemd boot sequentially. Once I spent quite a bit of time troubleshooting a problem where a zpool would not mount at boot time. It turned out that the controller for the zfs hard drives was initialized too late for the boot process (system drives were on a different controller). This never happened with SysV and I wish I could set Systemd to mimic this as well, even if it adds some seconds to the boot time of a server I reboot once a year.
Debian jessie does well to hide Systemd. The usual commands work and I usually forget Systemd is even there, unless there is a race condition or I forget to do a "systemd daemon-reload" after editing some files in
If he's being shot down left and right by everyone from the "established" media as well as bloggers, and ridiculed on Twitter and Facebook, they'll at best become the next Cameron, who had an SI unit named after himself: 1 Cameron being the minimum distance between two blunders.
I routinely print pieces of laptops for my workplace. We are always losing hinge caps and dock covers.
If you plan to propose a law concerning the internet and telecommunication:
1) Find out how the internet and telecommunication infrastructure works.
2) Ponder how to enforce the law.
3) Ponder who gets to set the required rules and regulations to enforce the law.
4) Propose it.
Jumping straight to 4, as you usually do, leads to ridicule and only accomplishes that you're showing off your ignorance to a more and more computer- and internet-savvy population. In other words: Don't do it if you value your career.
In some countries, people are allowed to change their address. This is called "moving" there. What about the people who can and do that?
What is needed is a more expensive device that can be put into corner shops that prints high quality metal parts and maybe ceramics.
What is needed is a not-very expensive device that can be put into the home that prints high quality metal parts, plastics, ceramics and electronics.
The GP said none of the products were overpriced unreliable and feature poor.
You should reread the GP. He said that the revolutions didn't happen with the overpriced, unreliable, feature-poor, first-generation products.
1 1 was a race-horse, 2 2 was 1 2. When 1 1 1 1 race, 2 2 1 1 2.
