mihies,

I started considering hosting my own instance for private or limited use. Any thoughts?

mihies,

What numbers we are talking?

mihies,

Couldn't they do it in like 12 minutes, though?

mihies,

It's like those 35,000+ so far don't count. Let's start with dozens.

mihies,

Thank God, I was worried for a brief moment.

mihies,

Not much of a good radar, eh? /s
I bet the motives to strike it were multiple, such as sending Russia a message (because of nuclear drills) and financial ones - those radars have to be obscenily expensive. I bet the later was primary.

mihies,

Talib government at the time asked US for evidence of Osama involvement, they would consider extradition. They didn't get any. Thinking about it, neither did we.

mihies,

It's not just node, it's also the design. If I remember properly, ARM has constant instruction length which helps a lot with caching. Anyway, Apple's M CPUs are still way better when it comes to perf/power ratio.

mihies,

Here, I've found an article. M CPUs are also much more integrated, like a SoC, which gives them further performance/power advantages sacrificing extensibility.

mihies,

Really precise, it's just 8,0000, give or take, children and some women. That's nothing, IDF deserves a medal. /s
Also nice how you consider all dead men as terrorists, true Israel spirit.

mihies,

At least it doesn't pollute when it burns. Hydrogen is also a decent storage capacity when you have plenty of renewable energy to store. Which is happening, just look at Norway or Germany.

mihies,

Germany has a lot of renewable sources and it's full on building much more. You're confusing it with their dumb policy of closing nuclear power plants. They are also considering hydrogen as storage to replace coal and gas power plants during winter. Note winter, they have not much problems during summer where electricity is abundant and often has a negative price.

What does Norway being oil exporter have anything to do with this topic?

mihies,

Because she is a representative of a certain non European country committing crimes against humanity and genocide while she sings?

mihies,

Did you ever check that tiny print on majority of your products, the one that says 'Made in China'?

mihies,

I really doubt that since it's really hard to avoid products with all least parts originating from China. But hey, believe what you want.

After announcing increased prices, Spotify to Pay Songwriters About $150 Million Less Next Year (www.billboard.com)

When Bloomberg reported that Spotify would be upping the cost of its premium subscription from $9.99 to $10.99, and including 15 hours of audiobooks per month in the U.S., the change sounded like a win for songwriters and publishers. Higher subscription prices typically equate to a bump in U.S. mechanical royalties — but not...

ve ran into the same issue I’ve had with Spotify for a while - even if I download a playlist for offline usage, it’ll still try to connect to the internet, so if I was somewhere with poor reception, it’d get stuck on a spinning circle for a minute before giving up and showing me the songs I’ve wanted to play.

That's by design and all streaming apps would do it like that to enforce abuse prevention.
Edit: added word at the end

mihies,

The thing is, you're buying from their record labels, not directly from artists. And then it depends on their contract how much they actually get. But they are still getting more from it, I guess.

mihies,

Probably it wasn't noticeable. Imagine this scenario: somebody would pay a monthly fee, would download "entire" Spotify and then forever listen to it in offline mode. And since it's offline, artists won't get payed as well.

mihies,

No one is being turned into a borg drone.

Yet.

mihies,

I really do hope that this crap is handled better in EU. At least theoretically it should be.

mihies,

One can hope, right. I just stumbled across an article in local magazine about this same issue. Have to read it and report back.
