    We've had too many bad tornados lately, but it seems to be calming down. I should probably be somewhere else. However, there were numerous cancellations.

    I have an 8GB one and it sucks. Lately I have been using small MP3 device that also has the Blu-tooth. Mostly I just use wires, so it lasts almost 24 hours. The main issue is that the fonts are very small, but at least it is OLED. The old SanDisk OLED players were better.

    Best 8TB Drive

    SSD is still expensive for a reasonable quantity of storage. I have 12x10TB of HDDs in my main NaSD, 13x8TB in the secondary, and a bunch of extra arrays off in the central zone. I don't even know how to replace them with SSDs other than a homemade server or maybe the FS3017. A few years ago...

    You can pore over WD financials to see where the redundancies were, but the merger was a long time ago. Even before the merger the WD and Hitachi buildings were literally right next to each other in Thailand for example. All the drives have been made by WD for years now. You need to get over...

    I keep receiving similar messages with varying threats. It's even more annoying than my Japanese toe nail fungus problem. The entire text is actually an image. Unfortunately the messages come from my own email address so if I block it, I cannot send myself emails. :(

    The Hitachi NAS drives are discontinued. You'd have to buy a WD Red (5400) or Pro (7200). The Seagate alternatives are the IronWolves. The newer 8TB drives have been taken off helium, so you need 10TB to get the cool running drives.

    Wow, you must really like film and have a large room for that. How many lumens does it take to make a bright image at that humongous size?

    Well that only happens at SF, so it is not normal. :( Anyway, the imperialist system of units is so bogus I'm amazed it still exists. I'll try to remember to use cm or text inches in the future.

    HGST was purchased by WD years ago. They just did not change the name for a while due to the positive reputation of HGST in the enterprise market. Some of the 8TB drives are now atmospheric rather than helium filled. Given that 14TB is now the high standard, I would be looking at 10TB for...

    The link was there at some point. It's a different type of gremlin from SF. ;) I suppose you feel that I used the wrong symbolism for inches? I saw some with various sizes up to the 88 inches.

    Samsung and LG make large TVs with some variations of the QLED or OLED. I really would like to know what is not good about them. Is it just the logistics?

    Do people still use projectors at home? I thought they made TVs over 85' diagonally nowadays.

    Well, if one nails the Ferrari with the electric sedan then the latter will likely stop accelerating. :LOL: I'm still not convinced about the incident. I prefer to rent a large vehicle like the Navigator, Yukon XL or Escalade ESV since there are so many crazy drivers out there.

    Consumer vehicles have an accelerator pedal and a brake pedal. This is not an engineering problem. :) Of course there are various slang terms as well and a vehicle may also have a clutch pedal, parking brake pedal, etc.

    You are only 56 or 57 now? I'd seek professional advice now as to projected future options, but of course those will change over time, too. Don't be so fatalistic.

    I'm not the best at getting immediate treatment for non-critical issues, but medical conditions rarely resolve on their own. I've been lucky that all my surgeries were essentially successful, though some had complications. My body will never be what it was in my 30s, but at least I can hike a...

    When did you have surgery, later on? At least our generation had power steering. Until the 60s most vehicles were manual.

    70 isn't that old for normal driving. My grandfather was driving just fine well into his 80s, then deteriorated in the late 80s.

    I meant "cars" and $130 million. ;) Probably the autonomic vehicles will get there eventually, but they still suffer numerous deficiencies.

    I would suggest a used Civic, Corolla or similar economy car. David can tell us what it costs to update an old Mazda to electric, but I don't suppose it was cheap. 😉 Robot controlled cats will be unreliable since the projects and programming involves people, often of limited competence.

    I received a similar email. Oddly enough it is to and from an e-mail account that I only used a couple of times about 5-6 years ago.

    The large over the ear types are usually uncomfortable when tight enough to consistently block sound, at least for me. I have a Sony of some kind and a more recent Bosed. I also have the issue of excessive bulk/weight on the international flights unless travel is for work. I'm not assigned to...

    Without any medical interventions in the best case I'd in such bad shape as not to be able to work . I don't want to think about the worst case. :( Obviously some aches and pains are natural with ageing, but when you need surgery and medications you need them. Only a masochist wants to be in...

    Do you really want to be saddled with an old car for daily driving? Most people are driving to work, dropping off and picking up the kids, doing activities and visiting places on the weekends, etc. They want cars to work, not break down or require frequent maintenance. An electric motor...

    I don't get it. I have options in 10 Pro of the semi-annual channel or semi-annual (targeting) channel. My understanding from about a year ago was that the semi-annual with the 120 days deferment was the longest delay possible for the regular users, not having Enterprise versions or hacking, etc.
