UK sitting on top of at least 50 years of shale gas – report

mr. deadlift
FAIL

you familiar with the oroborus. the snake in a circle that eats itself? that's what oil shale is. return on energy invested is next to fuck all. plus you have added bonus of a raped wasteland. unless youre going for that kind of look. no much better investing in new god damn energy tech or invading a nation of little brown people with easily extractable resources. oil shale is a sham and a dying gasp of big oil ideas.

bullshit claim is bullshit

yep, couldn't agree more on this one.

but it's not only the big guys who claim this too, it's bricks and motar stores as well.

wouldn't surprise me if a lot of these big companies had shares or owned logistic chains etc /cynical.

which is why i will alway take a gamble with ebay first on almost all software. and it is a gamble but there are things you do to migtigate it. i've gotten product at much fairer prices from folk who have purchased the wrong poduct or sellers that have a much more competitve price point than legitimate vendors and resellers.

and let's not forget how expensive downloads are too...

i, wonder why piracy exists at all ...

Flash pioneer STEC invests in ZFS zealot Nexenta

mr. deadlift
Pint

Hopefully this pays off, i didnt realsie zfs had limitation on pure solid state storage. would be good to see zfs pushed along, not that it isn't at the moment.

Been using zfs for some time now and looking to move to zfs on linux however getting doco as always is a little tough, looked at illumunos alternatives OI but hardware support is a concern.

shame we lost open solaris.

beer fo ZFS, cracker filesystem/VM

NZ government network leaking data like a sieve

mr. deadlift
Meh

kinda of explains...

...why all the competent and accomplised kiwi i.t pros iv'e met all work in aus. i guess a brain drain will do that to your skill base. im not sure which way i feel about Mr. Ng's actions morally, however i'm all about naming and shaming idiots who insist on poor i.t practice and get paid in six figures. i assume that's the pay grade for manager in a ministry department.

Re: Listen...

absolutely hit the nail on the head, there is no way that Lotr or the Hobbit would have been produced without a substantial break from the NZ tax-payer. and of course that goes for any other country and tax payers as a film destination. okay a country is repaid in a way via tourism. but to subsidise production, then be gouged to see the end product, seems pretty hypocritical to me. and let’s not forget union furore with Hobbit also. mr. weinstien would like to involve them in the desion making process also? The nz govt and warner bros did some very shifty deals and pretty much circumvented local ir laws to get the deal done, so get off the cross hollywood and start a meaningful dialogue instead of shooting first because it definitely goes both ways.
