Re: scaling up is the answer?
"Economic" depends on what part of the life-cycle you choose to cherry pick.

This is a justification for the separation of powers between the executive and the judiciary so that one man cannot set himself up as Hitler.
It may be distasteful if you don't get your way every time but in the long run it keeps democracy safe.
Try widening your political perspective by reading how Alexander Lukashenko hijacked a democracy in Belarus. http://www.aljazeera.com/programmes/peopleandpower/2016/01/belarus-europe-dictator-160120104016003.html
There are a lot of people on this thread who do not have a clue what they're talking about.
I have seen a single 6 mm nut take out a gas turbine engine.
All it takes is one blade impact and you get a cascade back through the remaining 6 to 20 compressor & turbine disks each willing to contribute further broken blades.To make things worse, modern ceramic blades are more brittle than stainless or inconel blades.
I, for one, certainly do not want to play russian roulette with sudden power drops.
"The taste for the hidden has not played an accidental role in the distortion of practical democracy."
What a remarkable and true statement. I had to re-read it multiple times to savor it.
Very true when it comes to Irish politics. e.g. Irish Water :), or for evolution in US politics when it comes to how convenient interpretations of the constitution are being enforced....and hidden.
A Return-To-Home function kicks in when the drone loses the controller signal.
That should be achievable by jamming the controller frequency and effectively creating a clear zone around the fire. It does not take much to confuse the interpretation of control packets regardless of encryption. Emergency services operate on different restricted frequencies. No silly nets or free-for-all gunfire.
Drones without a return-to-home function should be made illegal.
Overclocking DOES reduce the lifetime of a processor.
One of the causes of transistor failure in a processor is due to electromigration within the junctions. This is a function of voltage. The design lifetime is modelled for a specific voltage range.
Increasing that voltage, e.g. in overclocking, results in a shorter lifetime. QED.
I'm not sure about the impact of higher frequencies but I can certainly surmise that there is a non-zero negative effect on capacitor stresses and inductive effects.
Removing the facilities-based provisions is similar to Local Loop Unbundling; a good thing indeed.
it is common in Europe but not so common in the US because of monopolies (!).
It will introduce more flexibility in packages and specific savings as these smaller providers pursue niche markets.
However, those changes will also need controls on the charges imposed by the facilities-provider.
That is an INCORRECT statement based on false assumptions.
Global oil reserve/demand reached tipping point in 2005.In the long t erm oil prices WILL go up.
Yes we should have diversity in other energy sources including nuclear but barring a disruptive technology breakthrough in fusion, the financial models of solar/wind/wave are going to get ever stronger.
NOTE: the travesty of subsidy -driven corn alcohol production should not overshadow alternative energy technologies.
Fracking is a self-limiting resource and is just a temporary disruption to the current model of speculation and supply/demand economics.
REASONING: The world passed the reserve/demand tipping point in 2005.
Production at oil fields around the world is declining between 4.5 percent and 6.7 percent per year.
Production at shale gas wells can drop 60 to 90 percent in the first year of operation.
The current spate of supply from fracking will quickly hit diminishing returns as the shallower reserves are depleted and extraction from deeper strata becomes more capital intensive.
In a nutshell it's like a fire sale of the family crockery when the family silver is already sold.
The Android API fulfils the same functionality as the Java API without using the same code.
My impression was that copyright should be the details of the implementation, not the generic idea, specifically referring back to the Phoenix BIOS "clean" vs "dirty" teams.
