I find books each have their own time. How we read and relate to a book has a lot to do with where we're at when we read it. Unfortunately, when most of us our first exposed to the classics has nothing to do with this. I had a hate on for Stenibeck for years because I had to read "The Red Pony" and "The Blue Pearl" in grade 9. There was nothing I was going to relate to in these at the time, and the subject matter bored me to tears. I got over it, but it took me a while.
Some of the book selections made by the curriculum committees completely dumbfound me, not because they're bad books, but because the kids just aren't going to relate to them at the point they're introduced.
google wardrives everyone's wifi while they update streetview; your unique 48 bit mac address uniquely identifies your location if you are on a recorded wifi hotspot.
Doesn't this seem like a bit of an invasion of privacy? Since we love car analogies, would it be ok for google, while updating streetview to OCR the license plate of every car that it encountered in your driveway and update the mapping with that? That way, if you were cut off by someone while driving you could input their license plate into google and google could tell you where they lived. Or a criminal could go somewhere public, record all the license plates of the expensive cars and then figure out where those cars reside since, presumably if you have an expensive car, you would live in a nice home with expensive stuff inside.
No pure ideology works on the scale of a modern country (pop > ~1,000,000)
Pure democracy doesn't work for anything larger than Ancient Athens.
I dunno, it works pretty well over here in Switzerland, population somewhere between 7 and 8 million.
Fair enough, although from my limited understanding of Switzerland their level of internal order seems to be more the natural result of the Swiss culture and collective thinking process than an example of what a 'Pure Democracy' can achieve for a country.
If you are someone who likes their trains to run on time, I'm not so sure the magic bullet lies in simply changing the country's governmental structure; the Swiss are a wonderful addition to Humanity's tapestry of life but people who prioritise the importance of societal order as high they do are somewhat in the minority, even in the west.
All I do from my home Linux server is read/write files - mostly from Windows clients, but I have a few Linux clients as well. Also some very basic MRTG which I usually don't even look at anyways. One thing I've consistently read about NAS devices is that they won't necessarily have the horsepower to push the network connection on file read/writes to the max.
What's your experience with the speed of files in and out of the Buffalo device?
Agreed. One additional advantage not covered in TFA that I remember fondly from OpenStep (which feature GNUStep shares when configured for non-flattened bundles) was the ability to have one network installation of an
