As long as they've improved their unreasonable customer service.
As a OPO owner, after an abominable 6 weeks of "send us a video" from their customer support for the touchscreen dead spot and ghost touches fault, 2nd level support finally open with "you need to flash Oxygen OS"... Great. 1st level could've told me that at least a month ago to let me evaluate whether the intermittent fault is actually fixed.
The atomic watchmaking part of Agilent was sold to Symmetricom shortly after the HP / Agilent split.
Agilent has just undergone another schism, this time with the Test & Measurement stuff going by the name "Keysight" and Agilent retaining some Life Sciences and Chemical Analysis businesses, possibly some others too...
I was at the gym yesterday for my annual shot on the fatbastard-o-meter...
I'm 6'8" and 24 stone, for the record, I can row 2000m in a shade under 7 minutes.
The FB-o-meter says my lean mass is spot on, and my lard is about 30 kg too much, which is sounds right. But then, the beer belly is a dead give-away of that... If my BMI was to be 25 (top end of "normal") I'd be 16.5 stone and unwell looking, which is a lot different to the 19.5 stone I should really be...
Until the contactors weld themselves so that you could only run on generators...
The natives were not happy about that when our scheduled gen-test meant the genny was running for 4 days. People were queued up at the site gate moaning about the noise. Then again, we've been here for longer than them, so they were told to go away.
Anyway, 4 days later, the new contactor arrives, and the datacenter needs to be powered down so the sparks can do their thing.
An interesting week.
"If a police officer(s) pointed a gun at me, I'm intenligent enough to know that I can't outrun a bullet so whether or not I am guilty of anything, I am not going to try and run away, I am pretty much going to do what they say."
If they only do this when you're on a train, have no idea why a bunch of guys in plain clothes are pointing guns at you... might you be a bit confused by the whole thing? And then they didn't exactly give him a sporting chance... It's not like he was challenged by them on entering the station.
Mr Wells, you would have nowhere to run to when pinned in a train carriage. Your crass comment just shows what little grasp of the situation you have.
I would have thought the way to get people to accept Nuclear power generation is to point out that without it, they will be unable to switch their lights on of the hippies have their way. Grudgingly or not, if you want electricity to happen, you need to have a *reliable* generation network.
There was no need for that at all.
The guy asked three questions - ok, he rambled a bit, but that's hardly worth calling in the rent-a-cops for. He is then manhandled, which was uncalled for, and then dragged to the back of the room and TASERED several times.
I have talked people out of bar brawls, carried them out, and in some cases, cut through the BS and just waded in and stopped a situation. There was absolutely no need to restrain the guy in the first place. How a room full of people could sit like sheeple and watch this is incredible.
He should immediately press charges against the "officers" that assualted him.
Resisting arrest my arse. There was no need for an arrest in the first place, and those of you who sit there and try to justify the actions of the uni, and the campus cops really have no grasp of reality. The guy did nothing to deserve that treatment.
I can't help but think that "supercomputers" made from commodity hardware and blade centres are not very super at all... It's not like the old days of Cray, Sequent, IBM, Sun, HP, nCube, Tandem and the like... Interesting machines, not just a vast quantity of glorified workstations.
