Cause I really wanted more overhead, licences and emulations layers to debug, yééé!
Tvheadend is pretty good these days. The only thing in your list that I haven't seen any evidence of is commercial skipping.
I've just migrated off mythtv onto tvheadend and kodi and because they didn't have a great legacy of old analog tuners and other crazy, the setup for a bunch of DVB-T and DVB-S tuners makes a ton more sense than the gymnastics you had to do to map different multiplexes to specific tuners.
I'm not surprised that you''re befuddled, since you seem to not see the difference between storing data and doing data analysis.
The data sets is in tens of PB, so SSD is way out for cost reasons. But that doesn't matter much, since a small cheap server with 16 7k2 rpm drives can saturate 10Gbit/s networking, in real life use with the storage software written in Java (this position). And we need lots of these servers to make the volume up, so the aggregate bandwidth is pretty large.
The analysis software is up to my users, the LHC experiments, and is mostly C++, but with parts in python and probably some fortran libraries too.
Exactly! This is why I work as a sysadmin to support science, instead of working as a sysadmin to support profit or entertainment. I've had to make this call a couple of times in my career, and so far I've chosen to stay on the side that improves the world. Not always an easy choice though, given the incentives of the short term profit side.
You don't even need an academic career to do this either, there is plenty of us that have trouble recruiting competent programmers or sysadmins because the pay isn't as good. Which, I guess, tells us a bit of the priorities of society as seen by rewards structure, where making mobile games and banking is considered more important than making the world a better place.
PS, I'm right now looking for an excellent java developer working on free software that enables storage for huge data science, like the LHC experiments. This is the kind of role that is part of the infrastructure needed to make science happen these days:

The whole F-ing CA model is broken beyond repair...
Can we get rid of this joke of a model that we're all relying upon for the rest?
Yes, and if the UK rejects freedom of movement, a) Japan won't be happy as per the document referenced above and b) I'm not sure the UK can hope for a better deal than tariff-free exchange of goods. Certainly there will be countries going "well, if Polish plumbers can't sell their services in Manchester, UK banks will have to open EU offices to sell financial services to Berlin". And this still wouldn't be "punishment", but grounds for a fair deal, IMO.
And yes, I know that May has rejected freedom of movement. But she has also rejected border checks between Ireland and Northern Ireland, so apparently there will be free movement of people through that border?
Also, yes, Spain is a bit strange, unemployment is very unevenly distributed. But that's a topic for another thread, I think.
i think all EU countries would welcome a "Norwegian" deal where all four freedoms (including movement of people) are in, and the UK keeps implementing laws and paying without having a vote in new legislation. That's basically what Japan is asking for too. And I very much think they could get it, if they want it. But that would mean accepting free movement of people, and not "taking back control".
The thing is, no one knows what the UK wants. The political leadership is down to "brainstorming" to figure out what to fill the blank page with, under the heading "Brexit means Brexit". I mean, you hear PM May say in the same week that there will be strong immigration controls, but also no border checks between Ireland and Northern Ireland. WTF? The only way I can put those two together is by handing Northern Ireland over to independence within the EU or as a part of Ireland...
And until a clear path is in place, if I was Nissan, I'd not lose time "diversifying" the supply of cars to the EU by opening a second factory in Spain or Poland or Finland or so. All this uncertainty means you have to assume that the worst case could happen...
We're all @Snowden on Twitter, right?
I'd be curious to see a graph showing UID posting for every, say, 10 accounts over the last few years.
