Why would you use combustion for cruising on the highway over just a motor?
Almost certainly you're right and this is the answer. Thanks!
I'm all for electric vehicles, but the US has much lower population density. An electric vehicle only works as a primary vehicle if you rarely leave a major metro area. Unless they become cheap enough that it can be a second or even third household vehicle, it's simply not feasible for a lot of Americans.
I've been wondering if hybrids couldn't say, have the electric motor handle most of the bits that require torque, and use internal combustion for range. In that situation, you could have a smaller engine and have it tuned for fuel-economy rather than performance. So acceleration would be largely driven by the electric side of things, whereas motorway cruising would be largely internal combustion.
Would that work out less polluting than existing hybrids? I appreciate it would probably be much more complex to develop... and I guess if you're a car manufacturer, you don't want to over invest in internal combustion right now.
Say that 10 times fast....
or say it once backward and... summon the ghost of Steve!!!! (woooOOOOOOOOoooooo)
No silly, the USB-C version is only $30. Except, you can't use that whilst charging.....
Why does everyone use such small DNS TTLs? Checking some of the domains (including twitter) that went down, their TTLs are all less than 200...are their networks so dynamic that 1800, 3600, 7200 wouldn't work? Would really minimize the effect of DNS outages...
Perhaps so they can better deal with DoS attacks on their services; if their web server is under DoS attack, they can simply switch to another IP, but with a high TTL, it would take longer for the new IP to take effect.
