"this one will run and run"
BUT - the question is "in which direction"?

That effect is due to using mechanical means (motor) to rotate mass (rotor) - of course the "... equal and opposite reaction..." effect kicks in.
Possibly using something like balanced ion thrusters around the outer edge might do it - since the reaction is limited to the thruster location/angle and not a centralized mechanical mechanism.
My vague recollection from the late 1970s, was that he hated AT&T for refusing to make Unix(TM) free, and he decided that in retaliation, he was going to rewrite everything they did and give it away.
Actually, it was because he couldn't hack the printer driver in AT&T unix in order to fix it to work with his printer.
THAT is what set off the RMS GNU revolution.
Talk about small things with big impacts ...
As an analogy- it's better to learn how to use a library than to try to remember the name and location every book that's in it.
I had an actual job interview (phone) where I was asked about the linux "ldd" command. I could pretty much give them a step-by-step guide on what it does and how to use it.
My application was binned because, at the time, I could not for the life of me remember that "ldd" the command was an acronym of the words "linux dynamic dependency" - the part I could not explicitly remember was "dynamic".
I didn't know that "American" was a race. Last I checked, "American" was a nationality that signified the geographical location where someone a) was born b) claims citizenship c) other non-race-related geopolitical facts having nothing to do with skin color.
Might want to go back and re-educate on the definition of "race".
Well, A quick Google shows:
3 years (individual returns except as noted below)
4 years (employment tax records after tax due/paid date)
6 years (not reporting income you should have reported)
7 years (file a claim for a loss from worthless securities or bad debt reduction)
Other notes: MeyersBrothersKalicka CPA link
10 years (some legal documents; e.g. cancelled leases, notes receivable, etc.)
Permanent (some legal documents; e.g. bills of sale, permits, contracts, etc.)
Windows. USB Drive. Autorun.inf ?
I'm not aware of a Linux distribution that allows autorun capabilities on drives - unless it's a boot drive, and only then when restarting the O/S.
I could be wrong since I've only really used 3 distributions (Slackware, Fedora, Raspberry Pi OS) - although I've followed multiple distros as well.
As far as clicking on an executable - linux doesn't use the filename extension as a reason to mark it executable either.
It's not the glass that warps - it's the lids.
The one's he's talking about are the rubber kind, not the clear ceramic kind used for actual baking/showing at dinner.
There are some Pyrex sets sold with the blue color (or colour) rubber lids that snap on and create a (tolerable) seal for the fridge.
Some sets even come with both the rubber and glass lids.
I have an iMac all-in-one, 3.6Ghz quad-core intel i3, 8G ram, SSD, and 75M/75M internet at church.
The only software that's installed that is not part of Apple OS is Proclaim, OpenLP, OBS, and Chrome (OBS and chrome for live streaming).
When it's time for an upgrade and all software is stopped, it consistently sits at "Time remaining: about 15 minutes". For 3+ hours. And in many cases, I leave it overnight and have my wife shut it down when she comes in to work at the church the next day.
What's your opinion on why my system would take over 3 hours for an update? As noted, it literally does not do a lot.
If you're thinking Hoover Dam style renewable - go have a look at the water table in the lake and tell me it's easily renewable. Vagrancies in weather patterns make it more of a hit/miss style since rain used to refill the storage pool (or lake behind the dam) requires a fair amount of luck with the weather providing rain in the correct location to refill it.
Pumped storage is an option, but I believe "hydroelectricity" in the context of the article doesn't consider pumped storage since that's a very low percentage option (not enough pumped-storage facilities available).
I think you'd be surprised at how few recompiles are needed to include a program after updates.
The only time a new binary needs to be recompiled is when the main libs are updated with new API's - and even then most of them will still run just ensuring a symlink from the previous lib name to the new lib name.
I think the problem you missed:
2. Image is moved to a laptop or workstation (air gapped, of course)
2.a. CSAM fingerprints image
2.b. CSAM adds metadata to image ( can someone say steganography )
3. Image is encrypted
Remember, you have to update your computer sometime - and even air-gapped, you still have to download the updates from somewhere.
I remember those. I played with Slackware since the days of SLS.
I figured out how to take the floppies, copy the sets to a CD and figured out how to run the installer so I didn't have to swap floppies all the time - one CD to rule the install. The hardest part was recreating the X config file for the monitor(s) I had available.
Those were the days - quick edit of a plain text file and have whizz-bang installer updates.
As I read it -
Most driver code has been through multiple reviews on smaller code dumps over time. IIRC most drivers started with initial submissions with baseline frameworks and can be tested and verified. Driver is marked as EXPERIMENTAL - USE AT YOUR OWN RISK during this phase. As each submission is vetted, additional functionality is added, and only the new changes need to be tested/vetted.
27K lines of code added in 5K chunks can be tested/vetted rather easily.
27K lines of code added in a single 27K chunk is not easily to test/vet.
Also, keep in mind, once mainlined, it must be maintained by kernel devs. Or better yet, the original author/company (since they already know how it works).
Having lived through the OS wars of the 80's, I can pretty much say that you are (partially) one of the truth deniers.
The only reason I can say partially is because of the MS culture of the day and how they armtwisted the computer sellers and
bought "assisted" congress in making laws such as
<Clif-Notes version>All computers sold _will_ have an operating system on them"</Clif-notes version>
You must have missed the MS trial of the century.
Same thing with a 2005 Nissan Versa Note (orange display).
And, of course, the display faded just after the warranty period, so no - I live with the bunged display until I replace it.
(there's only a couple of radio stations our family listens to anyway ; and at 4am in the winter, the display actually comes back to normal - until the temp (or heater) raises the cabin temp a couple of degrees)
Although I agree with the sentiments, there's still too much politics involved in NASA funding for the chemical shed extras.
With that said, once Starship (and Moonship) get going, Congress will have less of a reason for politics to dictate funding directions where space is concerned (subject to military dictates).
Kind of like food service - low pay + expecting tips to make up the difference rather than decent pay + tips for exceptional service (like the original meaning of "tip" for better service).
At least with food service (restaurant style), the expectation is up front rather than behind-the-scenes accounting shenanigans.
Last article I read basically said most women astronauts prefer to keep on the birth control pill without the placebo pills.
If you ever noticed them, the package comes with 2 colors of pills - the pink normal pills and the red placebo pills; the placebo pills are only there to keep reminding them to take a pill every day so they don't miss the real pills. Menstruation happens during the placebo pill phase.
No placebo pills, no menstruation.
CNN article from 2016 that includes a link to a study of military females as well as astronauts, as well as notes on a long-term (think no daily pill) style of birth control as well.
Actually, ISTR in the beginning, Google was literally just a search engine. For about 5 years, they had no real revenue and no other business but website scraping to get links to tweak their algorithm.
But prior to going public, they were told they had to have a revenue stream before going public (and Wikipedia-style grants/donations were not an option)*.
It was only after they were almost forced to accept ad revenue that they changed from "Do No Evil" to "Don't Get Caught".
* Can't find the reference article since it's been years ago that I read it.
So we need something like 480GW generating capacity for a 1:1 replacement with ICE vehicles
By that standard - every house has a 100amp (min) power panel, with most newer ones having 200amp power panels.
Just looking at my street we're looking at 100x50=5K amps of electricity needed just to power my block.
Interesting that we don't even come close to the max rating per household at any given time.
(For those not math inclined, VxI=W 100a x 120v = 12Kw
Actually, those icons are used on the web pages coming from servers - not the browsers.
