Somewhere out there your high school English teacher is crying.
Every time one of my friends on facebook shares something from some crap aggregator site like "SuperInterestingCoolFunFacts", I go to the little drop-down menu on that post and select "hide all from SuperInterestingCoolFunFacts".
Turns out that most of my friends only get their daily dose of drivel from a few sites, so after a couple of rounds of that the signal to noise ratio improves considerably.
But how much does this actually happen? Do you need a video out port for that conference room weekly? Monthly?
And perhaps more importantly, how common is your job? Are you a presales-engineer, that you need to be in both the datacenter as well as in customer conference rooms?
What is the limiting factor? Buildup of CO2?
People need a certain amount of oxygen for their metabolism, you need to carry that much. CO2 effects the blood pH: too little and the body is too alkaline, too much and it's too acidic. So, you need to maintain a precise amount of CO2 and remove the rest. The scrubbers in the space shuttle were able to regenerate the CO2-absorbent material after use, so there was use of power but material wasn't consumed.
Beyond this, you need to control temperature and humidity. The other requirements than atmosphere for crew survival are that you water, feed and shelter the crew, maintain orientation, and maintain a G-force envelope that doesn't injure the crew.
I don't get this; why care about the amount of ports?
The only place where you need any amount of ports, is at a desk right? So I assume you have a desk with a non-bluetooth keyboard, mouse, printer, TimeMachine harddrive, maybe an iPad, monitor, etc. Then the only thing you need is a USB hub. You put the Macbook on the desk, connect power, USB and displayport, and you're done.
Exactly. I really like my stuff unblemished, so I usually get a case along with the laptop/tablet/phone.
Really, you should look at experimenting with another access point.
That said, I much prefer plain old copper ethernet. Every Mac supports it via a USB-based Ethernet adapter.
It's going to take me a lot to upgrade. I've got an iPhone 6 Plus now. It's two years old but man, I've never had such a good phone. The phone battery has never actually run empty, and regularly I come home after a day with still 75% left. The screen is large and bright. All apps launch fast (except Facebook, which I deleted and now use in the browser). I can set the font nice and small, while still readable. The fingerprint-unlock is amazing, and it takes real great pics and optically-stabilized movies of my kid.
Not sure how they can improve it.
Nonsense. One order of magnitude more, at most. On-line storage costs are on the order of $100 per TB per year.
I was going based on my experience with AWS, which is about $30 per TB per month for spinning storage, or $360 per TB per year. An 8 TB hard drive should typically last you about five years, and costs about $250, or about $6.25 per terabyte per year. That isn't quite two orders of magnitude, but it is pretty close. Of course if you're willing to wait several hours to start getting your data back, you can use glacier storage, and that's cheaper, but there are tradeoffs.
Upload time sucks, but only for the initial upload, which I did two years ago. After that, incremental additions are pretty negligible.
Must be nice. I backed up over 12 GB Sunday night, and that was only one week worth of incremental backups for my personal laptop. Over my DSL connection (soon to be retired), that would have taken two days. It would take several hours even over my new cable modem service. It took five minutes to back up locally. That time difference makes the difference between me being willing to back up regularly and never backing up.
Obviously, YMMV, but I would imagine that somebody with multiple terabytes of personal data is probably either a photographer or videographer, and therefore has the same sorts of nightmare backups that I do. But I'm just guessing here. For all I know, it could be a porn collection.
Online backup is cheap. Most start at ~$60 a year for unlimited backup.
I'm having a hard time believing that $5 per month is even possible for anything approaching truly unlimited storage. Just storing 2 TB on Amazon glacier storage would cost three times that much. I assume they count on most of their users treating unlimited as tens of gigabytes. If everybody were storing 2 TB, I'd expect those numbers to go way, way up.
But even if you assume that $5 is your total cost from the cloud provider, that still isn't your total cost. After all, time has value, plus your internet connection costs money. Backing up 2 TB over a typical home Internet connection can take anywhere from many days up to years, which means if your storage needs are that large, you're going to want a faster Internet connection or you'll lose your mind. Tack on another $30 a month for that.
In addition, storing your backup in the same location as your main copy is not smart, even if it is in a bunker or fire proof safe.
Hence my suggestion of periodically cloning your RAID and keeping the clone at work.
Youngman said she believed in 2nd Amendment rights
That's one of the truly funny things about this.
As a person over 45, and being a woman, the second amendment does not apply to her at all - she's excluded twice.
When are you people going to wake up that your gun rights are there because they were not taken away and that the second amendment has nothing at all to do with it?
You might have mail.
