It’s strictly a high volume, offline deal, which generally restricts it to enterprise use only. The tapes themselves are cheap, but the tape drives to access them are extremely expensive, and their lack of random access means they only make sense if you’re accessing large sequential chunks of data, or if you need… »
There’s the old stereotype of the “good christian family” having tons of kids. A religion that put such hindrances to reproduction would have trouble sustaining membership (see Shakers). Heterosexuality and resistance to birth control is a learned survival mechanism. Breed for God! »
I was in a hailstorm about two years ago. The storm was traveling transverse to the highway, and you could see the edge of the hail not a quarter mile south. Still, a couple jackasses left me and thousands of my fellow rush hour drivers in the hail for ten minutes, rather than retreating southward to safety.
Most cars will have no trouble “breaking loose” as the drive wheels cross the paint strip at a traffic light. If it’s damp out, you don’t even have to hit the gas hard to do it. »
The grid provides reliable (usually) three-phase high voltage product. You provide unreliable single phase low voltage product. The unreliability is shared among all your nearest neighbors, so when your production is low, so is theirs. It’s hard to predict, so it’s hard to compensate for with reserve power that must… »
No. Ruckus wireless is just traditional adaptive beamforming. You have a bunch of independent antenna that can transmit the signal with a dynamic amount of delay. You get constructive interference between the multiple antenna, amplifying signal in certain directions and nulling it in others. Ruckus did not invent or… »
These people are selfish. Telling them that they are getting vaccinated for the sake of others won’t help things. »
I am just wondering why you would be so worried about an un-vaccinated child if yours are immune to whatever they may have? If the vaccine works than you should have no worries at all right?»
When he refers to himself as “Dr.”, that’s exactly what he’s doing. When you hold yourself as a licensed authority and not simply an independent opinion, you lose your free speech rights.
They’re comparing themselves to launches that are all 10-50x their cost. They should be comparing themselves to things like the Pegasus, which is only twice as much, and offers 10x the payload, plus the flexibility of an air-launch.
Once you start adding in the complexity of electromechanical parts to a lock, you may as well just ditch the physical key entirely and make it cryptographic.
No, the Space Shuttle Solid Rocket Boosters were re-used dozens of times, with better than 99% reliability»
What would be the purpose? You can only run on water, so aside from hopping up and down the coast, that leaves out all continental traffic. You’re ground effect, so you can only travel on calm water, leaving out rough seas. You better stay at port if there are storms anywhere in the area. These programs have… »
