Reflection of Big Money and IBM type Sales
Ever notice the disparity of Intel to AMD computers in major computers companies and brick and mortor stores? Microsoft just follows suit with the same type support:-)

I saw this quote from an alias named Peter Wong* who quoted: “It’s not uncommon for mainframes to process hundreds of millions of transactions on a regular day, per mainframe. It’s a very high throughput and stable system.” About two thirds of enterprise data goes through a mainframe computer. However, the speed is both an advantage and a drawback, as people try to integrate mainframe with cloud: mainframes were built to process transactions very quickly, but they were not designed to wait. “If you wait, it jams up. A hundred million transactions is nothing, but a hundred million waiting — that’s a disaster."

Next, discusses personhood attributions through biological, philosophical, and legal frameworks; review benefits and risks of xenotransplantation; reflect on the moral status of non-human animals; and offer concluding thoughts.
People who use Robinhood should read this:-) One item noted is this:
Principal Trading Firms and Payment for Order Flow
10. Rather than sending customer orders to buy or sell equity securities directly to
national exchanges, Robinhood, like other retail broker-dealers, routed its orders to other brokerdealers (often referred to as “principal trading firms” or “electronic market makers”) to either execute those orders or route them to other market centers. Principal trading firms attempt to profit from executing large volumes of retail buy and sell orders either by taking the other side of customer orders and exiting the positions at a profit, which is also known as “internalization,” or
by routing the orders to other market centers.
This is why it does what it does. Under About Microsoft Edge - "This browser is made possible by the Chromium open source project and other open source software." I had older Windows 10 and for some reason, Microsoft Edge did not update itself to this new version. Then I came across about it and installed the new version on top of the old. I have not a clue. This is why I have 4 different versions of browsers on my machine:-)
Companies keep tweaking up features with their software, and like all above, I catch myself asking what the hell !? I then wish for the old Norton Commander and Compuserve again for a short minute. Then I realize I am stuck with this feature until I try to see if I can turn it off.

The problems with all the spectrums in space has been studied. Shielding, manufacturing radiation hardening resistant process, error correction design, redundancy. - even dual mirror channel architecture with fault error design between the two was used in military hardware since the beginning.
We also have facilities that does this here on earth such as https://www.bnl.gov/nsrl/ . Someone convinced the grants team that they need real time data.
I think the biggest problem is radiation emitting contamination getting into our electronics (as well as all man made products including shielding) manufacturing which we have not been able to completely rid of since the beginning of the above ground nuclear tests and more recent nuclear disasters (Chernobyl and Fukushima)
