The UK Government already do. There are two key taxes levied against Datacentre and connectivity providers:
Fibre Tax - A tax on the physical fibre in the ground
Carbon Reduction Commitment - A tax on power usage
What an absolute pigging disaster for British F1 fans.
I refuse to pay for Sky, let alone shelling out for Sky Sports as well. Murdoch can go swivel. To watch this on Sky, will cost £60 a month. 2nd option is something like BT Vision or TopUp TV, BT I think are currently selling Sky Sports 1 & 2 channels on Freeview at a loss, total will be around £20 a month.
BBC F1 coverage has been fantastic, the presenting and commentary team have matured well together over the last couple of years.
I really hope this agreement is either revised or dropped altogether :(
Have they fixed the stupid bug introduced in the last release, which meant you could only add NFS exports on an entire disk, instead of individual directories?
Thankfully when I upgraded, existing exports worked, just couldn't add any more without creating a serious security problem!
Oh and ZFS works in the current version ...
I bought an original slingbox a few years ago and found it operated very well.
However, times have moved on. I now have an iPhone, pretty good 3G coverage (places I tend to visit, at least) and TvCatchUp
I was watching F1 qualifying earlier in the year on at the end of Southport pier ...
Its good stuff
XenServer coupled with XenCentre (100% free), which allow live migration when you install xen-tools on supported Linux and Windows OS' (100% free) are all fantastic offerings. The "Enterprise" offerings are also great value compared to other vendors, with very favourable SaaS pricing.
My only hope is they are not bought out by another big player, as they may stop development: my company has recently started spending cash with the intention of putting XenServer into a production environment!
Makes no difference
As the drives will be limited by their write speeds to probably around 30-40MB/s and read speeds of probably around 100MB/s (SATA) (real world stats, not distorted manufacture figures), it makes no difference at all what the interface is capable of.
