Re: One wonders if he has a backup plan.
I was thinking it would come down to either Jonestown or Rapture.

Helicopter licensing is difficult for a reason.
People can't even drive in two dimensions without causing fatal events, three dimensions will be an order of magnitude worse.
Power lines, other vehicles, birds all must be dodged and when not dodged you need the now destroyed flier to not drop into people's homes.
Add to that the nasty tendency for people to get drunk or try to show off how good they are at aerial acrobatics.
No way do I see flying one of these to be any less regulated than a helicopter.
Read the article. A government certainly did get involved. Perhaps not in the way you are alluding to, but a much more realistic picture of how governments actually get involved.
Don't count on any government to react with anything but 'good idea, how do we exploit it' while also informing the media that they are trying to pass legislation forbidding the exact thing they are currently implementing.
Also, when it comes right down to it, which country gets to legislate anything on a global network that anyone outside that country would listen to? And how well do you trust that country?
4) Money has the benefit of having a government backing it, sometimes a government with really big bombs and an itchy trigger finger if someone tries to mess with their currency valuation in any meaningful way.
Crypto lacks this feature, but otherwise the two are roughly the same.
Socket != chipset
AM4 is just a pegboard and the pinout circuitry.
What you are thinking of is the chipset. B450 and X470 to be precise are the ones that need some kludging to allow for the zen3 parts. It's not really the bios size in general, just that they will need to remove a lot of existing cpu definitions to make room for the new sku's, which will result in market fragmentation and hence why they tried to avoid it by specifying only X570+.
Also note that the 320 chipset AM4 boards cannot be used with Zen2 parts.
So you still need to swap out boards for AMD as well, but at least they tried to keep it to a minimum.
Thus always with AMD.
They usually produce really excellent hardware and then cripple it with firmware/software written by a drunken hobo smashing a keyboard with his empty wine jug.
It made the pairing with ATI seem more than appropriate as they also never produced a driver that didn't contain at least one major fault.
If the supporting software by some miracle actually proves viable the only solution is to farm the chipset production and bios off to a different company so they can destroy whatever actually worked in AMD's reference build.
I'm also dropping Intel for AMD, for the first time since the celeron 300 came out, but I'm waiting to see which motherboard maker comes out on top for reliability first. Also what's with the pricing? X570 is about 20% higher than z390 same maker, same model type... Is the shitty chipset fan really worth that much?
This is just it. The more they tighten their grip, the more people will encrypt and obfuscate their connections.
If the .gov had just shut their big yaps right at the start they could still be using clearnet honeypots to nab the real villains of the online world instead of chasing ghosts through the onion at great cost for limited result.
But keeping silent and doing your job never got anyone a budget increase.
Central Canada here...
How about -40C with all heating/defrost on full?
Not that I've broken my google fingers, but I'm lazy. What is the rated charge % for EV batteries at -40? I know from bitter experience that a lead-acid lasts for about 15 seconds of starter use at that temp before dying.
It doesn't help that software other than a few game devs didn't see any SDK's for the rtx until what? April? Of 2019?
Not a great way to launch a card, leaving out the entire workstation market like that.
I gambled on the 2080 gaining traction as a rendering card and am yet to see any payoff.
It's a great card, no doubt, but a 1080 right now is better bang for the buck until the code catches up to the hardware.
Definitely not going to plonk for the rtx quatro until seeing how much difference the rt can really make.
I love those type of solutions.
How many machines does it take to get to that process by trial&error?
This right here is why schools need these devices.
Lesson one, week three - Restoring your broken boot. Students must devise and apply a method to make their busted PoS machine run again. Pass/Fail to be determined by pushing the power switch and seeing what happens.
That is exactly what children need to learn how to do if they wish to live in a technological society.
I'm not being sarcastic either.
The solution is the same no matter what generation of .gov software your country has installed.
Erase the partition WashingtonDC then create a new partition and format with whatever .gov system you feel you require.
If I might offer some advice; make the partition much smaller this time.
>>Mind you, Brother offers Linux drivers in .deb and .rpm formats on their website. But... I didn't need the .deb. It just worked. WTF?<<
I'm glad that worked out well for you, but it also raises another point against Linux in the eyes of the many.
On Apple you drop a .dmg on your desktop and a program installs. (At least that was it when I last used OSX years back.) On Windows you only have to click an .exe to encrypt your entire filesystem and let the ransom-ware folks know you're alive and well.
But on Linux...
.deb .rpm .pkg .tar.bz .etc ...It requires faith and hope to try to install anything that's not in your repo. (Faith, hope and a very detailed reading of the dependency list.) Even then the names of some of those things you need are going to change from distro to distro and versions will almost certainly be different.
This does not go over well with people who just want to do some new task in a hurry.
Yum, emerge, pacman, apt-get, etc doesn't bloody help either. Fragmentation is great for people who want to experiment and learn, but it's ass for everyone else.
