While it is intuitively obvious that any frequency offset that moves target frequency away from the reference point to which all other frequency sensitive devices (such as relays) have been indexed will have a potential impact on those devices' performance, the industry has by and large regarded Time Error Corrections as harmless and necessary as part of the service it provides to its customers. However, in light of this data, NERC's stakeholders are now questioning whether or not the intentional movement closer to (or in some cases, further away from) the trigger settings of frequency-based protection devices as is evidenced during Time Error Correction events is appropriate.
Accordingly, NERC is planning a Field Trial during which the practice of doing Time Error Corrections will be suspended. What will this affect? We don't think it will have much affect at all, but just to be safe, we are reaching out to various industries to get their thoughts on this. Those industries include appliance manufacturers, software companies, chemical manufacturers, companies that make automation equipment, computer manufacturers, and many others.
Jailbreak the fridge. See if you can't turn it into a replicator while you're at it...
On the contrary. It is *extremely* rude to throw up a confirmation dialog before every trivial system maintenance task.
As has been pointed out below, System Restore is basically only useful for resolving problems so severe they prevent your system from booting. Once your system has booted you don't really need older restore points, and they take up a *lot* of space. Deleting them is absolutely the right decision for the average user. The *real* problem here is probably the UI for creating system restore points not mentioning the deletion policies and generally misleading people into believing that creating restore points manually is a useful thing to do.
These people creating restore points all the time remind me of the people who get obsessed with defragmenting their disks every night...
Foolish? I think that's an understatement. Using temp for storage is like getting angry when people flush your shit down a toilet.
When I can play every single PC game on Linux, I will.
I'm not against Linux, I'm actually an LPI and Novell certified Linux admin. I just play games.

But the REAL Blank Reg is using that identity. You will have to be Blank "Concerned Onlooker" or something.
Meh, what the hell, you owned up to making an uninformed comment. That sort of mature response to a correction has earned you an unwarranted up-mod.
Obama has become nothing more than a trained monkey on a chain.
Pity, I liked the guy too and hoped he would be different.
We traded a bunch of whacked out right wing conservative asshats for a bunch of whacked out left wing asshats. All of which still serving the corporations that bought them as whores.
American used to represent freedom. Now were hogtied under corporate dictatorship
Would someone out there please invade us and liberate us from the terrorists now in control. Pretty please
All them crazy baldheads look alike to me. I wonder what job they're appointing him too. Assistant to the Assistant Treasury Secretary?
