Death: follow the birth process (sections 1.1 - 1.6) in reverse order.
What should we do with the inevitable box of pieces left over?

I've had this whole shebang scripted on Windows Server for several months now. I even have an nginx proxy that's properly certified too. This is hardly a difficult thing to do, and once you've learnt the underpinnings (about three days with trial and error), it's good knowledge to have.
Just make sure you create a certificate with a subject alternate name defined to please Chrome.
Wasn't the Angle of Attack sensor replaced prior to this last fatal flight of this aircraft?
So far I have heard reports that there were issues on the 3 previous flights to this one, and the sensor had been replaced. Had one faulty sensor been replaced with another one? Had the wrong sensor been replaced? Did the new sensor pass all ground tests on the system before departure? Had the ground tests been properly executed? Has the cockpit been found to determine the state of the MCAS switches?
If the MCAS / AoA system had issues on the previous flights, were those pilots aware of the new equipment operating procedures on the 737 MAX? How did those previous pilots overcome the documented system failures?
The final AAIB report on this will make extremely interesting reading. I hope they find the cockpit voice recorder, though I expect it will just have the two pilots extremely baffled at why their aircraft is repeatedly countermanding their control inputs.
The new Mac Mini line looks to be in the same ball park as a refurb Mac Pro (6 core i7, 32GB, 1TB SSD, $2499), but it supports the latest Mac OS X and has Thunderbolt ports.
With some adaptoring, I think it'll even be able to drive my two Apple 30" monitors. I write code, so video resolution/performance has absolutely no bearing on my needs at all.
The new Mac Pro (next year?) needs to be a significant step up to have me looking away from a high end Mac Mini.
In a former life, many a time bringing an ailing PC or printer back to base would remove all trace of the reported issue. The thing just needed a day out of the office.
Similarly, temporary HD fixes for worn out bearings could be achieved by putting the HD in the freezer for a few hours. They'd run long enough afterwards to copy off the data to a new HD.
I'm not a VR connoisseur by any means, but I've yet to see a side by side feature comparison of the Magic Leap One with the other [leading] units on the market?
If this unit is as poor as reporters would have us believe, then a few facts and stats would be helpful to illustrate this conclusion.
1. Overload the switch.
2. Trip the GFCI on the main distribution panel.
3*. Powers down the automatic defibrillator, and the WiFi connected panic switch.
4. Anyone want Grandmas cat?
5. Donations to the RSPCA please.
* At this point you could switch the movie script to mix alien and human DNA to create whomsowhatever.
1. It's my home server,
2. It captures video from my home security cameras
3. I can Remote Desktop into it
4. It sits nicely hidden away in my networking cabinet - behind the towels, the sheets and the 2 bumper packs of toilet rolls :)
I would love a new one though. Faster (i7), more RAM (32GB), 2TB+ HD. One HDMI port, and a handful of Thunderbolt / USB C would do it.
(Plus I can use one for Windows and get rid of my wife's desk space consuming Dell tower too.)
Is it economically sensible to actually buy these compared to, say, four 256TB units and then spend the purchasing dollars saved on renting extra datacenter floorspace/power/cooling?
I'm sure in time they'll become economically viable, but is that 6 months from now, or 2 years?
I'm not a datacenter purchasing, commissioning or operations engineer (I write code), just curious to understand the economics here.
Perhaps a bit off topic, but why smart light bulbs instead of smart light fixtures that work with any old bulb? Not that either seems to me to have all that much utility.
Good idea mostly, except it's more work to take them with you when you move, and they're not readily installable by the average homeowner.
I'd trust my mother to install a light bulb without electrocuting herself, but less so to change a light fitting.
We can't really think of any good reasons why remote control of Hue lights would be useful.
It's really useful if you have a long overgrown pathway to your house, and you're coming home late. Turning on the outside lights so you can see the nefarious rascal about to jump you and make off with the remains of your kebab.
Why they never realize that they can make off with your very expensive Hue lights instead is beyond me.
for each byte in largeDataPacket. // megabytes
UpdateStatusBarOnScreen() // takes a millisecond or two
SendByteToDevice() // takes microseconds
The result was that sending the entire packet took about 30 minutes to progress a status bar a few hundred pixels across the screen, and only about 10 seconds to actually send all the data to the device.
As the register seems intent on avoiding a beer carrying back pack for the humble golden retriever, which is also very adept at following balls, might I suggest that the final chassis of LESTER bears a significant resemblance to a certain robotic assistant of Dr. Who.
Plus K9 did have a LASER in his nose, and you can never have enough LASERs, can you?
"Hey Boss, we've got a batch of these quad core CPU's but half of the integrated GPU's have failed testing."
"Can they still access all the memory and run pattern matching?"
"Great, then we're going to call them Security Processing Units, add yet another $100 to the unit price and ship all that silicon anyways."
