  • Remiel | Solitary Confinement Is Torture
    at it with his cuffed hands to set it off Then the engineering student says he gave up and accepted death He bit into his eyeglasses to break them He says he used a shard of glass to carve Sorry Mom onto his arm so he could leave something for her Let s concede right away this man s experience was far worse than that of a typical solitary prisoner who wouldn t normally be denied things like water food toilet access and certainty of release I mean you know unless you re a terror suspect Those guys hate puppies and eat babies But ask yourself would you rather spend 30 days in solitary or be whipped a dozen times My bet is even if you think you prefer solitary you d change your mind after experiencing them both and being able to compare Wikipedia Solitary Confinement Criticism Ironically whipping prisoners is considered inhumane while solitary confinement is tolerated as if it were just grown up time out I think our bias stems from the vivid imagery When we imagine being whipped we imagine immense pain streaks of blood and screams of agony We partly experience it ourselves When we

  • Remiel | Rapture. I have questions
    FAA smart enough to mandate that all co pilots be heathens It would be ironic if those post 9 11 safety doors ended up killing everyone whose flight crews ascend to the sky mid flight On the other hand if it is a rolling Rapture and I don t want to spend eternity surrounded by Mormons so I jump on an Asia bound flight the moment I land in CA

  • Remiel | Is this rhetorical question confusing?
    do a little homework before you buy and be particularly sure to check out current SandForce based offerings That said the performance gains are so great even now a RAM upgrade s got nothing on this that even at over 400 the price performance ratio feels totally worth it provided you buy the right drive Intel s X25 M series is the real deal There s also a 80GB version available for less than half the price but you ll be hard pressed to get by if that s your only drive Update zuhl has written a nice piece on how to Move Your Home Folder Off Your SSD if that s your thing MCE Technology s OptiBay hard drive chassis The extra speed of SSD comes at a price and not just in dollars You re also sacrificing a lot of capacity In order to have your cake and eat it too you need to find a way to get another hard drive in there for data and media storage The Mac OS should of course be installed on the SSD The OptiBay replaces your optical CD DVD drive so you can have two hard drives one fast one large capacity It also includes a free external enclosure for your optical drive and a USB cable so you can still pop in a CD or DVD when needed Western Digital Scorpio Blue 1TB hard drive optional This is optional since you could just use your existing platter based hard drive for secondary storage instead But I wanted more space Vantec NexStar 3 external drive enclosure optional I put my old notebook hard drive into this I now use it as an external backup Syba 12 Piece Extensible Precision Screwdriver Set optional If you plan to replace your existing hard drive you ll need to remove four Torx T6 screws These tiny star shaped screws cannot be removed with a regular screwdriver The beauty of this thing is that it s not really a set It s a single drive shaft with a chamber in the handle for storing the collection of bits I bought it on a whim because my tools are in storage but now I m completely in love with this little gadget It includes both flat and philips style bits in many sizes as well as an assortment of Torx bits What I did Temporarily installed the new 1TB drive in the Vantec external enclosure Connected the 1TB drive via USB formatted it HFS with Disk Utility then used Carbon Copy Cloner to back up everything on my MacBook to it Installed the SSD into the OptiBay enclosure Opened up my MacBook and installed the OptiBay SSD using the provided instructions Started the machine with the new SSD installed and formatted it with Disk Utility Deleted everything from the original internal hard drive that I didn t want on the SSD then used Carbon Copy Cloner to copy the OS and apps to the SSD It s important to note that everything is still backed up to the new 1TB hard drive at this point Used System Preferences Startup Disk to change the MacBook to boot from the SSD Rebooted from the SSD and made sure everything worked OK Powered off the MacBook opened it back up and replaced the original hard drive with the new 1TB drive I used ifixit s guide to replacing a MacBook Pro hard drive Screwed the MacBook shut for the final time and started it with both new drives in place Upon confirming everything looked OK I installed my old hard drive in the Vantec enclosure its new home Deleted the now redundant system files from the new 1TB drive Changed my system hibernation mode settings See below New hibernation settings Ever since the PowerBook G4 Apple notebooks use a system called Safe Sleep to restore your computer to working order after being left unattended for a while With Safe Sleep the current session is written to both RAM and your hard disk RAM because waking up is faster that way and the hard disk so that the system can safely go into hibernation if the battery drains while it s asleep You can save some space on your SSD by disabling Safe Sleep and removing the sleep image You ll still be able to sleep your computer but there s no zero battery safety net anymore Your MacBook can go a very long time in RAM only sleep mode on a full battery so this should rarely affect your life But keep in mind that if the battery does run out you ll lose any unsaved work This Macworld article goes into greater detail about Safe Sleep but for our purposes the short version is this Open up Terminal Type sudo pmset a hibernatemode 0 without the quotes and hit Enter Enter your password when prompted You are now using RAM only old school sleep mode Now type cd var vm and hit Enter Finally sudo rm sleepimage This will delete the existing sleep image file on your hard drive reclaiming that space for future use Why not install the SSD in the regular hard drive bay Good idea The only problem is that the regular hard drive bay is the only bay that features sudden motion protection If you drop your MacBook it s smart enough to safely park your non SSD hard drive so it won t be damaged by the impact The optical bay interface has no such feature This is harmless to your shiny new SSD because it has no moving parts but any spinning platter based drive will be at risk if installed in the optical bay You can have it both ways if your secondary hard drive has its own native sudden motion detection the Western Digital Scorpio Blue does not nor does your factory installed MacBook hard drive In that case you d install the SSD in the MacBook s regular hard
