This is why ECC is used to protect memory and data busses. At least on the good stuff
Silicon-on-sapphire is the main way to implement silicon-on-insulator, which is more protective of radiation bit flips and less likely to latch-up. But since these have historically been required only for space satellites, they have been horribly expensive. Imagine running an entire IC fabrication just to make a few chips. As there are more applications for rad-hard chips, the price could fall.
Speaking out of curiosity isn't enough. You must speak from knowledge. This is generally achieved through a great deal of work and some experimentation.
It's really obvious when you don't have it.
A view Russian probes got lost while flying over HAARP, I think Phobos Grunt was the most recent one. The theory is that their electronics was grilled by these high-power transmitters. This one actually makes sense though.
This was obfuscation on the part of the Russians. According to the failure report issued by Roscosmos there were other reasons, including use of non-space-qualified components that were susceptible to radiation damage, and insufficient ground testing.
But... but... Trump is teh evil!!!1!!!!
That's a much more reasonable explanation, right?
You are of course welcome to use whatever you want, as long as you comply with the license. In the case of ProxySQL, that's the GPL. Percona appears to be one person, one René Cannaò, and it looks like he's interested in selling his consulting services. If you are actually making money from using his product, please consider throwing some work his way.
Like I said, Open Source developers should not have to wear hair shirts while their users, sometimes the most profitable companies on Wall Street, rake in the dough.
The high-speed rail was also funded by a state bond measure (which I voted against, back when I still lived there). What it got from fed money I don't know. Regardless, CA is always whining about no money for critical stuff, then spending it wildly on stuff no one needs... not the best way to get my sympathy as a taxpayer.
Per aerial view, it doesn't look like the dam is really in danger -- the washed-out part is a good ways from the dam proper. What might be getting undercut or supersaturated due the breach and suddenly slump is another matter, but assuming it was built from the local rocky ground, probably not a big risk.
Wait, that's a legit company? I assumed it was a virus. It always pops up anytime I visit any sketchy site with the most obnoxious ads.
The plan appears to assume the problem is water transport to the poles. That is, the poles are cold enough but the problem is a lack of water to freeze on the surface.
Yet when there is global warming the first thing that happens is moisture transport increases. More water evaporates into clouds and some of it, more of it, goes to the poles than before.
Thus the long term problem is not a lack of water transport.
