How Does Tesla Build a Supercharger Charging Site?

Richy_T Re:You *NEED* to do breaks. (132 comments)

Meh, Starting fully refreshed, four hours is nothing, depending on the road (interstates, light traffic). A couple of times I have even done 7 hours and been plenty refreshed at the end of it (You're sitting in a nice comfy chair, holding a wheel). It wasn't that I didn't want to stop, just that I felt no need to. Though I generally prefer to break things up a little. And if you're traveling with another driver, it takes seconds to pull over and swap.

Latest Wikipedia Uproar Over 'Superprotection'

Richy_T Re:Too much good content is deleted at Wikipedia. (206 comments)

Perhaps they should just hide it and make it possible for registered users to view it (after jumping through a hoop or two maybe) and tag it for reconsideration.

Latest Wikipedia Uproar Over 'Superprotection'

Richy_T Re:Too much good content is deleted at Wikipedia. (206 comments)

I know I had heard it used that way in the UK at least by the 90s because I remember being mildly surprised by an Australian friend having another friend with that name. I don't think it was in common use though but the UK gets a lot of American media.

How Does Tesla Build a Supercharger Charging Site?

Richy_T Re:And how long does it take... (132 comments)

But if you can afford a 70k car, you probably also value your time a bit more highly also. Just something to consider.

Richy_T Re:Why focus on the desktop? (670 comments)

It's not just the desktop. Even a headless install tends to drag half a dozen scripting languages in with it.

Study: Ad-Free Internet Would Cost Everyone $230-a-Year

Richy_T Re:Bandwidth (508 comments)

Wish I could mod you up. The truth is that a lot of ads cause far more annoyance than they ever pay back to the sites they are on. If you ever look into it, rates for ads are abysmal. Unless you're bringing in a huge amount of views, it's usually not worth the bother and even if you are, it still might not be.

How much say did you get in how Microsoft, the laptop vendor and all those little annoying trialware app vendors configured the Windows install?

Even then, reading the key may not be useful if it can only be used to decrypt and not encrypt.

Richy_T Re:Why such paranoia ? (287 comments)

That would be more likely to be some portable MIB style device that sends a code to halt/delete recording. Something similar is already done for scanners and currency

Maybe it's not about "me". You don't have to be black to appreciate what Rosa Parks did.

News Aggregator Fark Adds Misogyny Ban

Richy_T Re:Been there, had that done to us (714 comments)

You also have the low paying jobs backward. Such low paying jobs are only able to exist *because* government subsidizes them. What is subsidized is encouraged. It's a form of corporate welfare and should be abolished.

News Aggregator Fark Adds Misogyny Ban

Richy_T Re:Been there, had that done to us (714 comments)

What led to child labor in factories and mines is that children worked (typically in gruelling agrarian labor) and those jobs became available. What made abolishing child labor possible was those factories and mines allowing an increase in productivity such that we could afford to have such luxuries.

News Aggregator Fark Adds Misogyny Ban

Richy_T Re:Sigh (714 comments)

Many who both agree and disagree with many of my beliefs are doing it for reasons that are akin to rooting for a football team. They do not reason, they rationalize and we would be better off without them, or at least, their beliefs. They just muddy the water.
