Which NAS distro? This might help:-
I chose NAS4Free, but YMMV! Anyway, as time goes by, I'm using BSD more and more. Firewalls (pfSense) and NAS boxes especially.
I'm sure they're all legit, but somehow they remind me of this cartoon.
No it doesn't.
re: 1st Amendment. It's a good thing. I always wonder why they didn't include the Bill of Rights in the constitution from the beginning? However, as Alex Cox would tell you, the first amendment doesn't guarantee the right to show whatever you want on the TV, so flip you, you dipsy doodle melonfarmer.

Thanks for the reply. At the moment all I have is a CSP (Consumer Splice Point) on the side of the house as installed by the OpenReach guys. Another chap is gonna come and finish the installation which will look like this, I think:-
I believe there's a battery backup so you can still use the 'phone in a power cut. With a little luck, my pfSense box can plug into the fibre modem thingy, as you describe, and I can dispense with the BT stuff. I'll report back when I learn more. Currently, my HH3 on DSL crashes every few weeks (off and on to fix) so I'll be glad to be shot of it.
Hi Joe, my FTTP arrived yesterday, courtesy of OpenReach. I've been sent a HomeHUB 5a, which they're gonna come and connect up any day soon. Can you (or anyone who might like to help) post more details (model numbers?) on your alternative set up? I've got a WRT54 running dd-wrt for my WiFi currently, and I use a pfSense box as my firewall/router. What I really want is a dumb fibre modem, I reckon, and any suggestions would be gratefully received. Thanks to BT's excellent organisation, I was also sent two off HomeHub 3.0 last year when the installation failed. Can any of this stuff be used in bridge mode? Anyway, I'm off to Google, I'll post back if I find anything helpful...
NPN transistors don't have a gate. They have a base. FETs have gates, maybe that's what was meant.

It pisses me off when people say "I'm no good at calculus" as some kind of badge of honour. No-one would admit that "I'm no good at reading novels". Not liking calculus is something you should keep private, if nothing else. The admission implies that you are a lazy dumbass who can't think too hard about anything. Just fuck off back to your Harry Potter and the Mitten of Wool.
No, you're wrong. Of course two particles can have the same energy state. Maybe you're getting confused with the Pauli exclusion principle which states that two identical fermions cannot occupy the same quantum state simultaneously? If so, your joke then becomes hilarious.
Sounds like the *CPC wasn't connected. IT equipment power supplies have class Y capacitors on the live and neutral conductors to the earth that suppress high frequency electrical noise from the innards conducting out down the mains wires. If the CPC isn't working, then the frame has mains voltage on it through the capacitors. The more PCs, the more current will pass into you when you touch the chassis, assuming all the PCs are connected to a faulty CPC. A few PCs probably won't kill you, as the capacitors have significant impedance at mains frequency, but you'll be able to feel it, that's for sure. ISTR you can feel about 1mA, but you need about 30mA to be electrocuted at 50Hz.
I guess the printer was properly earthed, and so this leakage current was passing down the printer cable, screwing up the data.
*CPC circuit protective conductor AKA earth.
Whatever, the boiling beverage was in New Mexico, not California.
Well, kinda. Some scientists think that there may be a quantum element to the processes you mention, but it's by no means established 'fact'. To be fair to the TV show you mention, which I watched and enjoyed, it was made clear that it's only a possibility that quantum biology is a real thing. As for "All proof that what we knew 30 years ago was incomplete at best and wrong at worst.", no, not yet.
p.s. "I think I can safely say that nobody understands quantum mechanics." Richard Feynman.
@Frank. No, not shuttered.com either, I checked that and it had even less content.

You may well get your wish with the advent of systemd! BTW., as we're talking about meaningless numbers, FreeBSD will soon be the OS which goes to 11.
I gather the author went to college in San Francisco, so I can't believe he would have written that headline. No-one calls it 'Frisco or San Fran. unless they are a tourist. It's San Francisco, or 'The City' if you're local.
Wait... "Pro tip: If an out-of-town friend calls it Frisco, avoid the soapbox. San Franciscans have a rep for being uptight jerks about the nickname. Don’t play into the stereotype. They’ll eventually notice you never call it that anyway." IGMC

@Cuddles. You should have a different password for every website, server, PC etc.. Otherwise, if one system gets hacked somehow, you can be exposed on another. The xkcd thing means you have to think of a new mnemonic for every site you visit, which you then have to remember. By all means, use your xkcd thing once only, for your password safe. Then let it do the rest for you.
"Every time someone writes about the topic of passwords the XKCD comic shown above up makes an appearance. The fact is that the number of passwords you should memorize is pretty small, and there is no need of teaching users how to choose good passwords. Everyone knows what a good password looks like, we just can't memorize unique, strong passwords, for every single on-line service out there."
What there should be is more people using password safes. That would stop the brute force fuckers. The phishing fuckers carry on though...
@Jack. Whatever your views on immigration, at least get your facts straight and don't believe everything Richard "Cunt" Littlejohn* says.
Senior Immigration Judge Gleeson made a bad joke about the cat, but the real reason that the guy was allowed to stay was because the Home Office failed to follow their own rules. "You couldn't make it up", except that Theresa May did.

"display of sodium yellow light, which has a wavelength of 5893 Ångström Units"
Actually there are two D-lines, one at 589.0nm and the other at 589.6nm. Anyway, only losers are using atomic clocks these days. The rest of us have switched to hydrogen masers for timekeeping.
p.s. Here's a picture of Bill with his atomic wristwatch.
Nope. Acetone won't dissolve the solder resist. (It's not lacquer.)
"Winter is when we get most sunny days, even with the shorter days there's probably more hours when it is sunny."
Before you post, rather than just looking out the window, how about doing your readers the courtesy of checking the nonsense you're writing?
Choose 'England', 'Sunshine', 'Summer', average is c.560 hours. Change to 'Winter', average is c.175 hours. Even when you take into account that we get about double the daylight hours in summer compared to the winter, you're still full of shit! HTH.
If only the internet was a big truck.
HAHAHA! Very funny!
Economics, the Dismal Science, or perhaps better described as a pseudo-science.

The molten core is down to radioactive decay of potassium 40, uranium and thorium. That said, there are lots of other theories of why a big moon could help evolution along, e.g. churning up the oceans a lot.

"The core of the Jovian moon is heated by the immense tidal pressures generator's by Jupiter"
Actually, the heating is due to resonances with the other Galilean satellites, especially Io. Watch out for the monoliths...
Actually, it's kW.

Yep, all these green energy subsidies are highly regressive. Rich people can afford to pony up to put solar panels on their roofs, and get rebates and cheaper power. Everyone else pays more in electricity costs to fund these rich fuckers.

Right, you gotta add 40cm to the diameter to get to 4.52m^2. To lose 0.5m^2 you need to trim the diameter by about 16.7 cm.
Alexa says average site time 12mins/day. Does that include the cigarette?
The problem, which is pointed out in David Lowery's blog post, is that the YouTubes is a de facto monopoly. They believe that they can do whatever they like as the artists have (almost) nowhere else to go. The only way to fix it is strong government oversight. Your man Lowery has written to the Federal Trade Commission, and it'll be interesting to see if they do anything about this. I'm not holding my breath, mind...
p.s. The sub heading could've been 'Meet the new boss, worse than the old boss."

Temporal effectiveness of mouth-rinsing on capsaicin mouth-burn.
Oral rinsing with different solutions significantly reduced mouth-burn of capsaicin solutions in both eaters and noneaters of chili peppers. Cold solutions (5°C) were more effective in reduction of mouth-burn than solutions at 20°C. Sucrose solutions (10%) at 20°C and whole milk at 5°C were equally effective while 5% ethanol was no more effective in mouth-burn reduction than water at 20°C. Reduction of mouth-burn by sucrose was not dose dependent. Noneaters of chili peppers experienced a slightly greater reduction of mouth-burn from sucrose solutions than eaters. Oral rinsing with sweetened milk containing 0 and 10% fat, of varying globule size, resulted in similar degree of mouth-burn reduction. The first (control) sample was rated higher in intensity than subsequent ones, suggesting desensitization, which appears to be due to the interaction of stimulation of chemo-, mechano-, thermo- and gustatory receptors.
All of which explains why chocolate works, I guess...
In Mrs. Swinton’s garden, it was always summer. The lovely almond trees
