  1. Would probably be equally as accurate if you just took 'internet' out of that sentence too.
  2. Creating the partition on the front of the disk would mean physical media would not be required, problem is getting this done the first time. This would be the same as the factory restore feature on big OEM laptops that reset the OS/device back to out of the box, thing is they have that done and ready from the start. Reimaging over the internet simply isn't safe enough to do, anything goes wrong you have a non functioning device and no way to fix it. There are ways to achieve this with tools like SCCM but it's just something I would strongly avoid due to the risk and the impact if
  3. The difference is with Google Search you can control what is indexed and/or displayed in a search or completely disable it, I don't know if the same applies to Google News. And with that only page title will be displayed in a search. https://developers.google.com/search/docs/advanced/crawling/control-what-you-share https://developers.google.com/search/docs/advanced/crawling/block-indexing https://developers.google.com/search/docs/advanced/crawling/prevent-images-on-your-page https://support.google.com/webmasters/answer/7489871 Not su
  4. Don't know, last time this came up I understood it only applied to the Google News service and only if Google were displaying a snippet of the article, so article title and link only I thought would be enough to get around it, plus I very much do not use Google News anyway and only use the actual Google Search.
  5. Likely not, there's cross mixing when we each like something the other has done with each others own tweaks to suit but there is currently zero interest for such a law here. Things we do share are things like AS/NZS Electrical Safety and Compliance.
  6. I don't know, about 80% of me wants it to happen just to see what unfolds. Only proper way I see to see whos claims about how bad and unworkable or the opposite are true. Just anyone but my country lol. I doubt it's as unworkable as Google wants to make out but it's also likely actually very complex, but sure enough Google doesn't want to do it. Will it actually fix anything, probably not . Still is a fair criticism for what Google actually does in terms of data trawling/harvesting and tailored gatekeeping, if your business isn't 'Google friendly' then you're pretty much doomed
  7. You can use MDT to do this as it has an option to create Offline Deployment Media. Have a look in to setting up MDT. You should be able to as part of the imaging process create a recovery partition at the front of the disk that is bootable and contains this Offline Media that you will be able to boot from, it'll just be a secondary boot option. Updating this image won't be easy but at least you'll have a way to refresh systems back to a known state.
  8. The maximum power a 10k RPM 2.5" SAS disk will use is ~9W (8.8W for the one in my hand). Average will be lower than this as you won't be 100% utilizing it all the time but 5W-6W is a good figure to use, a 3.5" 10k RPM SAS disk will use more than this at 15.75W maximum. I don't think I have any 15k RPM disks on hand right now but it's probably safe to just add 20% on to these, if I remember I'll update tomorrow when I'm at work and can look.
  9. And if they did so that may will just start another lawsuit due to them ceasing operation in the EU affecting millions of EU citizens and I think the EU might have something to say about that.
  10. That's not how that technology works neither can it directly increase performance. Increasing data throughput in a system will not increase performance if the computational resources do not scale with it. Also the technology you are talking about requires specific support in the game, GPU drivers, DirectX feature support, and OS support does not enable it in games that were made before it existed. This isn't any different to games being made with DirectX 11.1 feature set not supporting DirectX 11.2 features, everything including the game itself has to support and utilize it.
  11. Not every site can actually easily dynamically scale, things like database caching services can only accept so many connections and automatically adding servers for that may not be possible or necessarily safe to do without oversite. The simpler the website the easier it is to just keep scaling out capacity, once you start adding more complex functions it gets harder and harder. Auto scaling web services is more of a aspirational goal for most corporates, they don't actually have them or there are technical limitations to which parts and components of the site can actually be scale
  12. Well that mostly depends on how the website is architected and where the load demand is highest or if increasing front end web capacity will just overload other components like a database server. If the load is mostly just people viewing products pages etc then that is a fair decent use case for putting that out to a CDN.
