Acceptable as long as it has a vette engine.

Really? We're letting Belarus and Ukraine out-do us by that much?

I mean, Russia you expect- that's a given. But Finland?!?

I am ashamed of us as a society.








edit: I wonder how much bandwidth you'd need to set up an MLP-****-searchbot, in order to push us back into the top spot? USA! #1!

I can probably hook you up with some contacts who can connect you to people who sell botnet time.

I don't even want to know why you have contacts who are able to sell botnet time.

Also, when the hell did Puerto Rico gain independence and become a country, and why wasn't I notified?




(And how are they beating the mainland by such a huge margin? I want to see the data behind those charts. Something smells fishy, and it ain't the harbor at puerto de Las Mareas.)

You'll need to convert your cash to bitcoin first, but its do-able. I know a guy who knows a guy who knows a guy who also happens to speak russian. The internet is a really ******* dark *** weird place.

I would encourage you to contact PornHub directly, they posted these via their "official" imgur account a couple months ago:

My Little Porny - Stats on MLP **** Consumption - Album on Imgur

pornhub on Imgur Contact info on the right.

I find the traffic data and statistics for Pornhub and OKCupid to be absolutely fascinating. I really wish OkTrends was still maintained but I think Rudder gave up after he cashed out with the book :(

I asked that same damn question Saturday night while watching the undercards for mayweather's first retirement.



Salido is Mexican, Martinez is Puerto Rican. They touted that this rematch, hosted at the MGM in Las Vegas instead of the "Coliseo de Puerto Rico", was a "neutral turf" match...and then they played "the Puerto Rico national anthem". I exclaimed to the others in the room: "What the hell is the Puerto Rico national anthem? Puerto Rico isn't even a country!"

I'm sad to say that one of them replied: "What do you mean they're not a country? Are they, like, part of the United States or something?"

I dunno, these statistics still seem hard to believe. I get the feeling they're just horsing around...

Interesting that you post that.

Going back into the "falling asleep" thread, I tend to lie in bed for a while reading random web pages, usually on Wikipedia. On my tablet right now is the page "History of IBM magnetic disk drives", and the RAMAC 305 (the leftmost cabinet of which is what I assume is under that blanket) is near the top of that page.

And not even 5 megs as we know it today. 5 million 6 bit words.







Fascinating system. 50 platters, but just a single pair of heads which rode up and down on a hydraulic elevator to move from one disc to the next, in real time, while the platters were spinning. And, surprisingly fast, too. You can see the mechanism in operation in this video:


I love the shot where a forklift carries in a mountain of punchcards to show how much the drive holds. The cards take up less space.




When I was in college, our VAX 11/780 had a whole row of RA80/81 disk drive cabinets lined up in front of it, which you could oogle over through the reinforced glass separating the dinosaur pen from the users:



I'm not even going to bother calculating how many orders of magnitude more data my phone holds than several dozen of those.

That observation has been made many, many times over many decades, going all the way back to a proposal which DEC declined to bid on (a communications link for some big corporation which had offices in both NY and LA which they wished to sync over a network), observing that shipping a box of tapes every night via courier would be a vastly superior solution.


XKCD has done an article on the phenomenon, and they conclude that it's getting better:

FedEx Bandwidth

FedEx Bandwidth

When - if ever - will the bandwidth of the Internet surpass that of FedEx?
—Johan Öbrink
Never underestimate the bandwidth of a station wagon full of tapes hurtling down the highway.
–Andrew Tanenbaum, 1981
2040

If you want to transfer a few hundred gigabytes of data, it’s generally faster to FedEx a hard drive than to send the files over the internet. This isn’t a new idea—it’s often dubbed SneakerNet—and it’s how Google transfers large amounts of data internally.

But will it always be faster?

Cisco estimates that total internet traffic currently averages 167 terabits per second. FedEx has a fleet of 654 aircraft with a lift capacity of 26.5 million pounds daily. A solid-state laptop drive weighs about 78 grams and can hold up to a terabyte.

That means FedEx is capable of transferring 150 exabytes of data per day, or 14 petabits per second—almost a hundred times the current throughput of the internet.


If you don’t care about cost, this ten-kilogram shoebox can hold a lot of internet


We can improve the data density even further by using MicroSD cards:



Those thumbnail-sized flakes have a storage density of up to 160 terabytes per kilogram, which means a FedEx fleet loaded with MicroSD cards could transfer about 177 petabits per second, or two zettabytes per day—a thousand times the internet’s current traffic level. (The infrastructure would be interesting—Google would need to build huge warehouses to hold a massive card-processing operation.)

Cisco estimates internet traffic is growing at about 29% annually. At that rate, we’d hit the FedEx point in 2040. Of course, the amount of data we can fit on a drive will have gone up by then, too. The only way to actually reach the FedEx point is if transfer rates grow much faster than storage rates. In an intuitive sense, this seems unlikely, since storage and transfer are fundamentally linked—all that data is coming from somewhere and going somewhere—but there’s no way to predict usage patterns for sure.

While FedEx is big enough to keep up with the next few decades of actual usage, there’s no technological reason we can’t build a connection that beats them on bandwidth. There are experimental fiber clusters that can handle over a petabit per second. A cluster of 200 of those would beat FedEx.

If you recruited the entire US freight industry to move SD cards for you, the throughput would be on the order of 500 exabits—half a zettabit—per second. To match that transfer rate digitally, you’d need take half a million of those petabit cables.

So the bottom line is that for raw bandwidth, the internet will probably never beat SneakerNet. Of course, the virtually infinite bandwidth would come at the cost of 80,000,000-millisecond ping times.

Back in the 80's-90's, I used to service all manner of DEC hardware, primarily on VAX systems. The RA80 was around 120MB and the RA81 was 450ish. At least they had easy to work on HDA assemblies, as opposed to the god awful RM05 open platter SMD type drives made by CDC.

I've always liked the sneakernet.

I still value mass dvd/cd duplicator machines. Full ATX pc cases with all drive bays filled with burners ftw, now comes in blue ray.
