Oh, they're productizing it too:

It would have been nice if the article had stated the manufacturer of said tractor. I'm strongly guessing it was the big green maker, as they have a habit of doing things like this. I was told that some Mennonites managed to reverse engineer the system and they make a living by fixing other people's green tractors.
I read recently that there's a big market for late 1970s green tractors. I guess they're 'new' enough to have the safety of a modern tractor, but old enough to not be computerized, so easy to fix!
The sad thing is that companies still haven’t figured out that you get what you pay for.
The crap cheap labor stays cheap, and the good cheap labor quickly becomes not-so-cheap anymore. So it’s a vicious cycle where they keep bringing in more and more cheap crap labor because they don’t want to pay the good ones what they’re worth. Eventually quality takes a nosedive and the whole company suffers because of it.
But not before the execs who saved so much $$$ take their golden parachute and bail, of course.
Nobody ever told you how or how not to run your network. If you want run DECnet or AppleTalk, then Bob’s your Uncle! I’m just trying to defeat the FUD surrounding IPv6 and NAT.
1) My machines behind a /48 are no less secure than my machines behind a /28, and didn’t require any configuration to do it. The default deny any inbound that the stateless firewall that your NAT router is doing works just as well without the NAT.
2) Most consumer devices ship with UPnP enabled, which means any piece of software can punch holes into your NAT like Swiss cheese without your approval.
3) Disable the UPnP and have fun with manually pinholing just to play online games on your console.
4) NAT breaks the Internet badly. All kinds of nasty workarounds like STUN are required for RTP and SIP sessions. So much “cloud” stuff is only required because of NAT issues!
5) The only networks that force stateful addressing and disable privacy addresses are corporate networks. On those you have much bigger issues to worry about privacy wise!
6) It’s a lot easier for Google to track your one NAT’d IP for weeks (your DHCP lease time) than it is for them to track 2^64 of privacy IPv6 addresses daily!
Obviously you're having difficulty reading what I said. I didn't place any blame on renewables, I'm just saying that they had a major impact also.
Sure, the wind turbines could have been winterized and the panels could have been heated or cleaned or something to prevent this. So like I said, I'm not placing blame. Please re-read what I said.
Once you start looking at even 10GE, fiber SFPs+ and their switches are much cheaper than ones using RJ-45.
Copper these days is stupid expensive. I have a *farm* that has fiber bundles everywhere because I can get fiber and SFPs+ from China cheaper than direct-burial Ethernet cable.
