Leaked Documents Show EU Council Presidency Wants To Impair Net Neutrality

Talderas Re:end-user == subscriber? (76 comments)

There's two flavors of net neutrality. There's the dumb network flavor in which networking devices receive and forward packets in a FIFO manner. Then there's the smart network flavor in which networking devices receive and forward packets based on what grouping and type they fall under so that QoS can be preserved for latency sensitive applications. The Internet, in the US, is mostly operating under a combination of both dumb and smart networks at this time and lot of the issues that people "claim" are violating the principles of net neutrality are not. There's been some minor filtering going on related to protocols that are known to be frequently used for illegal purposes but the majority of issues at this time are related to bandwidth which has nothing to do with net neutrality.

Russia May Be Planning National Space Station To Replace ISS

Talderas Re:What's it good for? (235 comments)

Money is fungible but a budget is a budget. Unless NASA is given specific legal directives to pursue this research they are electing to pursue this manned research instead of opting to pursue unmanned research.

This is a sea cucumber. This is a land cucumber. The land cucumber tastes good when you put it in your mouth. When you open your mouth to insert a sea cucumber it fills with salt water.

Denmark Faces a Tricky Transition To 100 Percent Renewable Energy

Talderas Re:Are renewable energy generators up to task ? (488 comments)

There is no tide to speak of in Denmark. I'm not sure that we'd classify the sea between the islands (Denmark is basically an island nation) as "oceans". The tides are usually 1m or less, most pronounced in the eastern part facing the North Sea, much less pronounced in the western parts that sits in the Baltic Sea.

Your geography is confusing. The North Sea is to the west while the Baltic Sea is to the east. Even more nuanced... the North Sea only borders the westernmost edge of Denmark and then you run into the Skargarrat which covers the northern side. That leads into the Kattgarat which borders the Danish Straights, which connect to the Baltic Sea.
