Slashdot Asks: What's In Your Home Datacenter?

buckfeta2014 Penis-waving much? (264 comments)

I have a router, a switch, a wireless access point, a desktop-class server, and two desktops. I highly doubt anyone needs several full racks of enterprise-class servers.

3D-Printed Car Takes Its First Test Drive

buckfeta2014 Tough as steel? (132 comments)

The vehicle which weighed about half of what a typical automobile would weigh, was as strong as steel.

Text While Driving In Long Island and Have Your Phone Disabled

buckfeta2014 Re:The Nanny State Strikes again! (363 comments)

Or Champix/Chantix, the anti-smoking pill that causes its users uncontrollable rage and suicide attempts (some of which were successful). All the FDA cares about is making money off the misery of Americans. On top of that, you have Canada, which feeds off anything America does, so they have Canadian blood on their hands as well.

If I recall correctly, this doesn't detect stingray, because stingray looks like any other cell tower.

I gave the new udev as well as systemd (and their initrd requirement) the middle finger, and uninstalled udev and installed eudev in its place. Business as usual.

Trying to find a file in the middle of a tape takes forever. If you're doing a restore from beginning to end, it's okay, but trying to find that one file buried somewhere in a tape is a pain.

I can think of two reasons. Speed, and random seeks. Tape sucks and should die a quick death.
