interesting idea, especially from the efficiency side. Also, if "welfare queens" weren't working anyway, what does it matter if it doesn't cost us anything extra?

Do we know if these were actually illegal, or just tax planning? Besides lower taxes, putting assets in an off-shore company can be a prudent thing if you live in a country which might seize the money, or if it is difficult to disentangle them and you want the option to relocate later. The US has some fairly draconian laws where citizens always have to pay american tax regardless of where in the world the money was earned, and I think regardless of where you live (if there isn't a bilateral tax agreement), so legitimately putting them in a tax haven might be pointless unless you are actually hiding them.

not true. if you spend a large portion of time out of country, there are certainly tax breaks.

Hadn't had time to follow up, but we are going to have a "security" meeting next week. I was familiar with Crashplan, probably from a previous Utumno post, so thanks. Druva is new for me. Keep 'em coming if you know if any other.

Marglar, we may look into that for VDI. Thanks.

Any suggestions? I've got 128TB of unused space to dump to, if needed; provided by a CoLo as a simple Samba share. It doesn't need to be spectacular. I am trying to mitigate our eventual Ransomware infection. I've got plans to lock down file shares a bit more, to wall off spillover. We already backup all Server, /home, and project areas with our Enterprise product (NetBackup), but I'd like to save the day on user machines when it happen again. This will not be for use of stupid user errors. This is strictly a failsafe, DR recover option.

In a 100 years I bet most descendants of Muslim immigrants will be enjoying a beer with the rest of us. We just need to get there without killing each other.

I read something in the last day saying that what the difference is, is that the growing populations of Muslims in Europe are never more than a generation or 2 removed from their homeland because the men continue to go back to the ME to get their wives creating second generation kids, over and over. I don't know how true it is, but it would make sense that until they look outward and truly assimilate, they will continue to stagnate.

and the projected cataclysmic events? You have to be a real climate denier to deny they didn't happen!

Agrul (and Kanmuk) addressed it by pointing out that 2 of the "Apocalypse Prophets" you seem to be most pissed about weren't even climatologists. You're the only one continuing to bring it up as if it happens all the time. Or that if even a small percentage of crackpots make shitty predictions, that it makes the real science wrong. You still haven't gone back and checked the science in your own blogger BS article to show how shitty its premise even is, or how none of it even mentioned these "models" you're going on about, so how can you be considered anything other than hypocritical to the people you are calling sheep?  :nz:

I'm not sure how much, but I think I remember them getting some funds in the last year from an angel investor.

I watched the whole thing over a couple of days.

Basically, they were all level 7 characters, with level appropriate skills and equipment, in a level appropriate zone (they mentioned, think think Commonlands or Qeynos Hills) just outside of a starter n00b zone. There was 1 GM-only ability they used during the showing, which was a Call of the Hero type thing when they died. Also, there was an issue with backstab on the rogue and he was laying off it mostly - when it hit, it did like 800dmg.

Yes, the first camp they went to was pretty much a static spawn, but they eventually worked their way into much more populous and interesting areas with plenty of roamers. One of which showed their ability to have environmental effects; it was an AoE, centered on an object, that had a exponential DoT on health and mana that you had to work around while pulling, then run through to get past. They also briefly talked about something called "colored mana." From what I could tell, different areas of the world can have sections that generate colored mana. There are relics that can absorb this and be brought to other areas, making it portable. They showed 2, red and blue, that basically gave boosts to certain types of spells and are consumed in the process.

Classes they showed were WAR, ROG, CLR, WIZ, ENC. Unfortunately it was all shown through the screen of the WIZ and could have been a bit more helpful on the spells, though they did show the spell book, along with stats/skills, and your avatar for equipment.

If you get University pricing with Microsoft, maybe Scale Out File Server with/without storage spaces?

Or check out StarWind.
