Criminals Using Drones To Find Cannabis Farms and Steal Crops

goarilla Re:Left-Wing Propoganda (256 comments)

Spin this thing however you like. Women should be able to choose an abortion.
Childbirth is an intensive and dangerous undertaking, and they have the right to choose if they want to take that risk.
Stop embellishing your Misogyny and enter the 21th century with the rest of the world.

From the moment of conception, the unborn are human beings,

Where is the scientific agreement on that ? I don't consider a blastula a human being.

Nat Geo Writer: Science Is Running Out of "Great" Things To Discover

goarilla Expectations (292 comments)

Science has always been mostly incremental improvements. For every world changing paper
there have been thousands of minor ones.I guess it's just time for the nobel committee to stop expecting grandiose stuff.

How Do You Backup 20TB of Data?

goarilla Friend with room (983 comments)

What I would do is build a second NAS.
Do an initial backup of it and move it to a friends basement/rack and sync it up every week or so.

The Human Body May Not Be Cut Out For Space

goarilla Captain obvious (267 comments)

In a Russian experiment in 2010 and 2011, six men agreed to be sealed up in a mock spaceship simulating a 17-month Mars mission. Four of the six developed disorders, and the crew became less active as the experiment progressed. 'I think that's just an example of what could potentially happen during a Mars mission, but with much greater consequence,' says Dr. Beven. 'Those subtle changes in group cohesion could cause major problems.'"

That happens on earth as well, it's why you have vacations or risk a burn-out.

Who Makes the Best Hard Disk Drives?

goarilla Re:Amazing how times change. (444 comments)

So Hard-drive water cooling ? Isn't condensation always an issue when you freeze ?
You're not filling the baggy with silicagel or something like that, so frozen crystals inside will melt when taken out.
What about putting tape on the electronics (pcb) and condoms/hoodies for the connectors ?

Ask Slashdot: Command Line Interfaces -- What Is Out There?

goarilla Re:What is this? (383 comments)

It's also hard to gauge the opponent's level, especially since expertise isn't a stepped ladder but more of a gradient.
We don't know how high up we are and we don't know how low the others are.
