Peter Mayhew isn't just tall, though, he's a whopping 7'3" which makes him incredibly rare.
Maybe a few tens of thousands of 7 footers on the planet. The ones that can make accurate limb movements get sent to the NBA. The wobbly ones have only got one career - Chewbacca.
It's a bit out of date now, but anyway, nobody's really mining btc with graphics cards any more. ASIC hardware is several orders of magnitude faster per $ spent. So yes, the more economically viable approach would be to use the hardware to brute force someone's password and steal their btc :)
I did read the internet, all of it. Firstly the link I posted earlier from the (admittedly, more scientific than your biblical sources) Met Office about when spring starts. Then this one, about midsummer:
"Date: June 21, 24, 25 or a date close to the Summer Solstice on June 20–23"
> "If you do something and it turns out pretty good, then you should go do something else wonderful, not dwell on it for too long," the quote reads. "Just figure out what's next."
Wow, that's brainless. Real 'Miss World' stuff. Does it go on to say that he loves kids and animals and would like to help people all over the world?
If you read the forum linked in the article, there's a comment with a link to the blockchain address of the wallet containing the stolen BTC. Perhaps someone with greater bitcoin knowledge than me can explain why it's possible to steal coins while they remain in plain sight?
"Richard Broadley is ... 12th most active contributor to the Bitcoin protocol ... He is one of a number of people who contacted The Reg to ask what to do if they had lost their Bitcoins"
..and there's the problem with bitcoin. If one of the guys writing the code doesn't understand it, what chance does anyone else have?
I've had a synology ds413j for a while and while fundamentally it's a great piece of kit, I would strongly advise anybody buying one of their NAS boxes to avoid the 128MB models, and those with slower CPUs. The web interface is too slow to be usable. For those of you using squeezeboxes, the server software is great, but won't fit properly into such a small amount of RAM either.
.. that this is a report on consumer grade drives being run in a datacenter operation - i.e. 24x7 at constant (presumably good) temperature and with low to zero accesses occurring. Which doesn't match what happens in a consumer device. e.g. Typically a PC gets turned on, and the cold drive is immediately thrashed senseless by an OS and apps starting, used for some amount of time and then shut down again later. Presumably a /typical/ consumer drive spends most of its time powered off.
I was using the BBC radio player app alarm feature until recently on my android tablet, which sits in a dock near the bed. Most recently, it woke at 7.00 one morning as usual, started playing radio 4, at which point the availability of the network connection clearly prompted the thing to opportunistically check for updates, which it found - specifically one for the BBC radio player, which was then promptly partially uninstalled before failing to update... all in all leaving me with about 5s of alarm. Which wasn't enough. I woke an hour late with a vague recollection of the events.
96kHz? Is that it?
Gigabytes of space going begging on a BD disk and we get a doubling of sample rate from the 30 year old CD standard.
Needs to have ultra high resolution, 2.0 and multichannel versions of the music, plus lyrics, high resolution album art, promotional videos, photos, making of... and anything else they can think of putting on there. Try harder. Or don't have my money.
> Next time it snows take your foot off the beans around a roundabout. I was going slowly but I incorrectly went for a gear change and suddenly a had car that started to oversteer.
Well, snow has a way of magnifying your mistakes. Lift-off oversteer is a known effect on many different configurations of car. Changing gear on a corner is a mistake in any event. As a biker, it's a complete no-no. I don't see where quattro, torsen or anything else could help you if you attempt a gear change on a roundabout in the snow. You probably just need a bucket of tinsel and some patchwork trousers :)
