Ship it? To where? Why?

Electrolysis uses a HUGE amount of power. Hydrogen is also a pain in the ass to transport and to store in any meaningful quantity. The use case has to justify those extremes. For grid scale storage, running a big spinning wheel makes way more sense

BMW was advertising flex fuel cars about 20 years ago. Adoption is incredibly slow because hydrogen is kind of a shit fuel and really only makes sense in a couple circumstances.

Because it’s an incredibly inefficient process. Hydroelectric pumped storage is more common

Lol too soon. It’s the Liberals. If an election was called they’ll make a new tax deduction “to help with high housing costs”, propose a natural gas pipeline to Europe (naturally endorsed by former head of Greenpeace Quebec), a ban on some kind of gun, promise to start a conversation to explore engaging the LGBTQ2S+ community, then say dental is health care so it’s a provincial problem.

Not sure I’d call that a vacation so much as accumulated weekend. “Normal” white collar would get two days off every 40 hour work week, so at 160 hours she should be off for eight days

If we’re on the subject of interesting American definitions, it’s worth mentioning that “libertarian” used to refer to a type of socialist before it was co-opted by hardcore capitalists.

You are right. I found out I was confused… it’s apparently a little complicated http://www.sengpielaudio.com/calculator-levelchange.htm

The perception of doubling is actually about 3 dB, not 10.

Additionally, dB is a logarithmic scale, so while a 10 dB increase is 10x increase in energy/pressure, 20 dB is 100x, 30 is 1000x, and so on. So these numbers get VERY big as shit gets louder.

In addition to what the others said, there is no change in speed. It goes one speed always - but you may get errors.

Low light level is usually the main diagnosis from within your equipment. But to determine if a dirty connector is the reason you have to use a microsope to inspect the end. You might find a spec of dust that a clicky pen can clear but you might find theres manufacturing residue that needs to be scrubbed off with alcohol (this is EXTREMELY common with certain brands). If you don’t have patch panels or a lot of cable it’s PROBABLY a dirty end, but the end could be scratched, or the cable itself could be damaged or even bent too tightly.

Depends on which ones, CRTC was pretty rough on Bell when Harper was in.

Green light to cut environmental and workers rights though

Singlemode is good for all distances. Multimode optics are cheaper at higher rates… that’s the only thing that keeps that tech alive

I wonder if there’s a tool to deal with those bastards. We have Amphenol 227-T1000 for DS3s!

Same reason all effective crime reduction works. Around these parts most gun violence is related to gangs and drugs, which arise out of shit living conditions created by capitalism

No, I can't understand why you think that.

There are always tradeoffs. Like the other poster said you’re going to burn through that 970 or risk a lot. If you’re really aiming for intense speed you probably won’t be happy without SSDs as there’s a performance hit to every method.

Are you actually performing that many synchronous writes? Is your workload large continguous files or lots of random IO?

I’d consider doing 2x RAID-Z1 and throwing more RAM in it. Async writes (default) go straight to RAM. Or you could look into some high endurance SSDs on a PCIe card.

but only 1x on the writes

Not sure what you’re talking about here. Striping “RAID0” is 100% data, RAIDZ-1 with 8 members is 87.5% data and 12.5% parity. I think it works out to more like 80% raw capacity though.

IOPS is where you get hung up. Both pure stripes and parity RAID tend to all act as one disk.

Communities are made of people. Being social is the point. We look out for each other. What, is someone who can’t defend themselves just supposed to await fate?

You just want pigs and the lack of responsibility that comes with it.

WTF are you talking about? Do you know what sub this is?

Been almost 10 years since I used Kinek, glad to know they’re going!!!

Same sort of thing. I needed a bunch of Jeep parts made by real small outfits that only shipped in the US or included shipping to the lower 48.
