Re: WTF is 550TB/year workload rating ? limited endurance or something else
Would not surprise me.
Back-of-fag-packet calculation puts it an average throughput of ~140mbit per sec, 24x7 to keep below the WRL.

You are indeed correct. Workload Rate Limit is the upper tolerance range for throughput before it will affect risk of failure for the drive. 550TB appears to be the threshold for most "heavy" use designated drives across the manufacturers.
Basically the manufacturers state that if the overall workload is kept below this threshold then the reliability of the drive will be as advertised. Exceeding the WRL rating reduces the reliability conferred.
Not sure I follow what you mean by "non-web-access email"
Most email providers give you the settings to interact with their mail service through whichever email client you like over a number of different protocols (POP, SMTP, etc). The majority also allow you to log in via a web client, but it's up to you really. You can use the android mail client to connect to hotmail or android outlook to connect to gmail. Can even add multiple email providers to the same client if you like.
So, according to Popular Mechanics, April edition 1964, they overcame the problem of reactive torque by designing a tool for the Gemini missions where the motor and motor casing rotated freely and were not locked to the tools framework it seems.
On the debris question, the answer is surprisingly low-tech and is basically "shaving foam around the area".
I'd thought it may be something like an assumed auto-correct where if the entered text doesn't make sense in it's current configuration, it does some distance-matching and checks highly scoring alternatives. But the response for entering dog only 6 times is "dog dog dog - reader email"...
"Its most recent Companies House filing shows the company as making a pre-tax loss of £28.5m last year, but the firm also paid its 362 UK staff a total of £35.4m in share bonuses.
The share bonuses amount to £96,000 on average per UK Facebook employee."
From the BBC so no guarantees on reliability but seems at odds with this stories £96,000 overall.
I still recall the deep and unabounded joy of being informed by BT that we couldn't have an ISDN line as the property was served by a DAX connection which also accounted for the fact that the maximum dial-up speed we could get was 28.8kbps and we'd get disconnected if our neighbour picked up the phone....
The part that always gets missed in discussions of this experiment is that nobody has agreed on what constiutes "alive" and "dead".
eg if the cat could be resuscitated, could it be considered to be dead? If the cat is not capable of rational thought, can it be considered to be alive (not my own viewpoint but one espoused regularly round the sherry snifters)? etc
- Hague, a signatory of a pro-union newspaper letter, says his firm could handle different currencies but with higher transaction costs and risks: "You've got your costs in one currency and your revenues in another."
I don't quite follow this. If you're a successful e-commerce business that doesn't cater to non-UK currencies, is that not highly limiting. Multi-national trade would require at least dealing in USD and Euro no?
