What happens if one of the drives fails physically? Let's say we want to try the freezer trick to grab some data, can it be stuffed in a case and mounted externally after being formatted that way?
Did anyone else notice another anniversary coincident with this one?
One of the stumbling blocks to resolving that other anniversary is that more than one shooter was possibly involved, yet only one was apprehended. For 50 years there have been arguments about whether the shooter acted alone, yet physical evidence of additional shooters is sparse.
Was a Tardis near the grassy knoll that day?
Why didn't Snowden understand the vulnerability?
A little anecdotal data point: Last summer I was commuting into Miami. Over the course of two weeks I saw the same Tesla car 4 times in traffic. Two of them on its own power and two of them on a rollback. It's surprisingly large in person, nice looking. But the rollback frequency is reminiscent of 80's Jaguar ownership.
Replacing Facebook is idiotic, I agree. Better to host my own site with info I can delete and change at will, and avoid free services as much as possible. There are these things called search engines that can find me anyway if someone wants to look me up. I can type short blurbs if I want to be succinct, without signing up for yet another service that limits my characters for me. I can have private pages that stay private and can be removed.
This is all dependent upon my not being egotistically bound to artificial stats about how may people are paying attention to me. Which are mostly set up to drive the user to produce even more free content. Or have trolly articles with half-baked conclusions. Like certain articles on certain tech sites, say.

Is it possible to have a column view in Nemo like OS X?
Will they throw in a free Zune?
No non-competes in Cali...
Who's being a third-world country now?
A bot that responds to a Doctor Who reference with another?
Would it be called Re:Tardis ?
"- the Obama administration will deal with it."
Objective historians agree...
Re: Look on the bright side
Those tweets were the first time anything REMOTELY funny has been published online under The Onion name.
Yup, got it.
Cloud Reliance = Idiocy
or Suicide, I hear the rate is rising int he US. Must be middle-aged corporations as well.
Re: Kicks to the what now?

"This is just another sign of a long, slow decline...."
Exactly, I read it as a death knell.
"...based on its 2012 revenue of $US50 billion, it's about 1 hour, 13.5 minutes of the Chocolate Factory's income."
So make the fine in hours of enforced downtime or revenue from that time. 24 hours might have stung a bit.
No Mention of Pinguy?
I'd think it would be a top contender for a beginner/switcher. Rarely takes any explanation when I've installed it for folks. Just put the stuff they want in Docky and let them at it.
Good to see that Dell is taking his own advice and giving the money back to the stockholders. MS is getting into integration with hardware. Sounds like the way another computer company does things. And we saw what happened to the clones.
"Silver Lake’s portfolio includes Avaya, Go Daddy, GroupOn, Skype and Zynga"
Sounds like a death knell. Maybe they should call themselves Mercury Lake.
Broadwell played him well
Got access, wrote book with his info, outed him for free publicity. Well played.
We keep looking at habitability from the wrong end. We need to suss out what makes us what we are, and implant that in a body that has fewer stringent requirements for survival and doesn't age, something that can use anything as fuel, has a long sleep/hibernation mode. Once that is done, the universe is our playground. The way we think now is like going camping with raw eggs instead of hard boiled, and working around that rather than exploring. Mammal bodies are ridiculously susceptible to allergies, viral and bacteriological attacks, and maundering behavior from chemical imbalances. Time to move on.
In general the database-driven iApps are frustrating to anyone above a novice, or anyone who wants to put media files on something besides an iPod. I'm using all 3rd-party apps, why spend for another Mac? Do some reviews on better Linux lappies, Reg.
Menace always needed...
Linux, the new communism.
How does it feel?
Once upon a time you dressed so fine
You threw the bums a dime in your prime, didn't you ?
People'd call, say, "Beware doll, you're bound to fall"
You thought they were all kiddin' you
You used to laugh about
Everybody that was hangin' out
Now you don't talk so loud
Now you don't seem so proud
About having to be scrounging for your next meal.
How does it feel
How does it feel
To be without a home
Like a complete unknown
Like a rolling stone ?
If you were an evil guy with lots of henchmen and you wanted to destroy the US, all you'd have to do is get Republicans elected. Selling natural resources for cheap (fracking), cutting the financial legs out from everyone, encouraging ignorant obedience, helping the psycho 1% hoard even more in whatever game they play at that level...no nukes needed, no terrorist tricks, just get Repubs into office.

Headline for sale...see title.
Maybe Apple can release something that doesn't look like it was designed by someone whose mom was frightened by an Altoids tin while she was carrying him.
Oops, no such luck, just a boat...
Sadly the museum was taken over by the kind of folks who would think this was a good idea some years ago, causing a real flight of knowledgeable docents. The flight path of the "paper" airplane parallels that of the institution.
Re: Unity will sink Ubuntu over time
If they're going to copy something...
..they ought to copy Column view in the FM.
Google Patent Search
Help me here, clueless American. Why can't the Swedish cops go there and interview him with local cops? If they decide to arrest him, then the EAW has teeth and might be honored if other legal considerations can be worked out. I'm just curious as a point of law.
Right now there are too many other factors blended in to allow clarity.
If you're bad...
Ohio is where you go when you die.
A NASA probe came closer to Pluto than any other vessel ORIGINATING FROM PLANET EARTH in the KNOWN history of space travel on 2 December.
...is the eternal province of the stupid reactionary. I wouldn't drink in a bar where a man couldn't walk in with an axe.
When I think of choppers and bars I think of Daytona or Sturgis.

Deserves to be tracked and ratted...
I left months ago...
They kept sending pointless emails about who I might know, but I never linked to people, just looked them up. Then, without any notification, and even though I had a profile, they wanted me to pay for access to view someone else's profile. I killed my profile right then, it was obvious where they were headed and how desperate they were. And how greedy.
I think they have been desperate for ways to monetise. Soon they will primarily be composed of weak links. Same airheaded know-nothing investors that enabled the first bubbles will enable this one.
Never update a client?
How come Seamonkey won't work with Google Docs suddenly? Looks like a client needing something very much like updating.
