Using Open Source to end 1.1 Billion people's ability to sidestep the State's intrusion into their lives. How ironic.

Re: Only barbarous savages or coffee drinkers ... would even consider instant 'tea'
Meaning (via Google Translate)
No, my good man, you are wrong. Mr. Proudhon was French, so he knew nothing about tea, and he was a mutualist / anarchist, not a socialist. But this is a mistake that is easy to understand, because there are many people who think that Mr. Corbyn is a Marxist. Today, even insults are thrown by those who do not understand their derivation.
There you have it in a nutshell. The cloud is based on the premise of a bank. The bank lends out depositor's money to others on the notion that not all of the depositors need access to their deposits at the same time. If there is a run on the bank (sorry we're out of capacity at the moment), the bank will have an auction to see who gets access to their own money by paying MORE.
What a delightful idea. IT dealing with the banks.

"This is very common with right wingers: bad data in, bad processing in the middle, raving nonsense output."
This critical observation is not only reserved for "right wingers". Centrist and Left wingers have been known to ignore valid data when it suits their soapbox.

Superconductors? Really? Cool down your dreams using liquid Helium? How many watt-hours just to power the compressors to keep it liquid? How many effing Pounds Sterling is this going to cost for your anticipated "improvement"? You have any idea of the increase in efficiency you are proposing? Call back when you do.

The person that REALLY understands this is not writing about it. They are busy building the damn thing and getting the hell out of Dodge.

There comes a point where these Wall St. types must be considered to be bona fide clowns. And the rest of us are hanging on to their every word.
Is it reasonable to think that because Office365 is up by the admittedly statistically farcical "triple digits" that regular Office should do the same? Are we so naïve to believe their expectations of earnings continuing "To Infinity and Beyond!"? Are we simply playing the game of getting out of the market at the top and letting the sucker, I mean investor behind us eat it?
Note to El Reg:
Muhhamad is Islam's Prophet. Prefacing the name with a definite article implies that I agree that this is the case. It is not.
For that matter, Mormons believe that Joseph Smith is "The Prophet". Ditto that as well.

Re: Photovoltaics is a one time, one way molecular erosion PARLOR TRICK !
If anything, the cost to build a renewable infrastructure is just as bad. The equivalent levels of carbon emitted would practically cancel each other out. Benefit? Running an industrial economy versus a hunter-gatherer one.

Start with one that works reasonably well. Add some variables. Check the output. Retain the ones that contribute to a closer approximation. Rinse and repeat.

"The fallout from using DDT in the 1950's/60's is still a problem in many parts of the world"
Yes it is, but not the way you propose. It continues to be an effective way of controlling malaria laden mosquitoes "in many parts of the world". Its discontinuance is directly related to the rise of malaria in these regions.

I could really see this happening.
Imagine Neville Chamberlain asking Hitler to be more "inclusive". "Why yes, Prime Minister Neville" Hitler replies,"You are so correct. And just to show my good faith in the matter, I've just included the Sudetenland...."

You sir, are a shill.
1. Yes, Licensing costs are lower. Support costs are higher. Does anyone know where Redhat gets its money?
2. This argument is false compared to Windows 7.
3. This argument is also false. Categorically.
4. This is a pompous argument. Apache is the most viable source of malware delivery today.
5. Nuts to this. If a vendor supports their own AND neutral standards, your argument lumps them in with proprietary vendors as well. Lies, damned lies and statistics.

Well, she was pretty cute.
They wouldn't need the cash if they moved their servers out of Ontario, Canada. Electrical rates in Ontario are skyrocketing, relatively speaking.
Perhaps you should also inform your readers that electrical energy costs in Ontario have increased by 30 % in the past year and that they are scheduled to increase a further 50% by 2015.
Re: Meet the Green Challenge
Thank you for this eye opening analysis. OpenBSD cannot move for whatever reason to an environment that allows them to control their costs. In the interim, they are faced with increasing energy costs based on fiascos described above.
Meet the Green Challenge
"The OpenBSD Foundation is based in Canada, and, according to de Raadt, 'a number of logistical reasons prevent us moving the machines to another location which might offer space/power for free.'"
This is a run on effect where in the mad dash to renewable energy generation, public utilities are paying private renewable generation firms a guaranteed percentage of their stated capacity even if they don't produce a milliwatt of power. If a solar farm has a stated output of 10Mw at full capacity, the producers are guaranteed $CAN 445.00 a day producing little or no electricity. My advice is for OpenBSD to look for charitable donations from these suppliers. It's my tax money that they will be paid with, no the producers.

If I am not mistaken, Man is short for manual which has its roots in manuensis - by hand - to which I offer only the index finger of my right one to this gibberish.
After reading all of these posts, it's amazing that the human race has come as far as it has without putting a name to all of these ranges.
