I'm sure most purpose-used computing centers do as well.

Not always, as codes and regulations and design limits(cost) change. A 20 amp circuit might run the accessory outlets to 2 or even 3 bedrooms. Not saying it's common or normal, but you should always check what breakers control which rooms/outlets/areas when you move to a new place, and update or totally replace the god knows how old breaker box layout card. Always.

I've seen businesses with 25 year old cards that are both semi-unreadable and outdated to the point of half the described layout being totally wrong. Oops I just reset some control logic for the boiler when I was turning off what was labelled as the ventilation and A/C system, when the boiler and boiler control were clearly written as Breaker 21, not breakers 19 and 17.

I've got a big security concern I just stumbled on with gmail and I want to know what happened. Here's the deets:

1) I previously linked my gmail to a networking service.
2) I sent that service a direct email today.
3) I got a response that showed up in my inbox for a split second. I read about two lines and it disappeared.
4) I only saw it because it wound up in my Thunderbird inbox. I never saw it in my gmail (phone) and I can't get it to appear again in thunderbird.

So what the fuck just happened? If you link an account like that can they just nuke whatever emails they send you? What do I need to be doing differently?
nvm I think I deleted the follow up message by mistake when I thought I just deleted 1/2.

So Thunderbird sucks ass. What's a good alternative?

>DOS at the time of its first use on IBM PCs was more resource-efficient than UNIX, at the cost of being overall shittier.
The irony is that this is the same thing people were saying about UNIX compared to real operating systems.
>UNIX was more resource-efficient than Multics, at the cost of being overall shittier.
>UNIX was more resource-efficient than Lisp machines, at the cost of being overall shittier.

>Microsoft is one of the largest companies in the world.
Microsoft became one of the largest companies in the world thanks to DOS and the PC. It was originally a couple guys selling BASIC interpreters. UNIX was already taking over universities and killing off real operating systems but it sucked too much for regular people to use.
>It has more funding than the Plan9 team could ever dream of.
Plan 9 was funded by Bell Labs which had unlimited money from AT&T plus all the licensing fees from UNIX. They had so much money that UNIX wasn't even important to their profits. Plan 9 was supposed to be the successor to UNIX, so Plan 9 sucks but it has nothing to do with funding.
>That is why you use Windows instead of Plan9.
No, it's because Plan 9 was useless. Macintosh and OS/2 competed with Windows. Nobody would switch from higher end systems like Lisp machines to something running Plan 9. Plan 9 really only competed with UNIX and it was even worse because it didn't have any of the software.
Bill Gates's mom was a high-level IBM employee who got him basically infinite funding and connections.

but manmade horrors are the only reason either of those conditions exist
I don't know about Alzheimer's, but cancer always existed. It predates humans, it even predates vertebrates. Almost all complex multi-cellular life has some form of cancer associated with it.
I feel like this is a deliberate misinterpretation of my opinion. Appendicitis is a rare condition; it is not a part of the human biology to always have appendicitis. It is a deviation from the norm; from the standard.

the argument you are making is similar to the trans argument that you cannot define a woman by her genitalia because hermaphrodites exist, or that you can't define a woman by her reproductive functions because some women are infertile. Neither of these cases define a rule; they are noted deviations from a standard. From a purely logical standpoint, they should not be used to define a rule. Not everything that happens to any subset of human bodies can be used to define what a human body is or does as a set standard.

Some things are obvious: humans are meant to age. humans get thirsty when they don't drink. Humans can't have sex with a guaranteed lack of pregnancy as the outcome. fighting these things that the human body and mind were developed to encounter is a pure social cancer. These things do not just affect the person; they affect the people around them and the way in which the social order is set.
>Neither of these cases define a rule; they are noted deviations from a standard.
When you have a deviation from the standard, you must conclude that the standard is at least incomplete.

What does it really mean to be human? Why would altering our bodies in a non-natural way deprives us of humanity? And even if it did, why should only humans have rights? Would you suddenly become an advocate of e.g. slavery if we encounter another sentient lifeform in the future?

What's the best web server for anime?

Plex is a pain because of naming requirements for seasons not to be broken, not to mention OVAs also throw a wrench into the equation.

Jellyfin? Emby? Plex with certain plug-ins/scripts? Something else?

Is it a file serving server or media streaming server? If the latter they you may as well subscribe to CR or other streamshit site because clearly you don't care about image quality.
I put the scanner in the right place and the Hama plug in folder in the right place, nothing has changed. Python is installed.

Any idea why Hama isn't fixing anything?

I had to manually add them to plex, fixed.

This is a test server using some of the anime I expected it to have an easier time with.

Very few OVAs, no series of with over 100 episodes.

Hama is actually worse than the plex defaults for me.
I used PS3 Media Server since it didn't parse anything, just showed me my own autistically sorted folders. That was years ago though and it's called Universal Media Server now.
Yes. It's plex. Alternative being network share with VLC app on TV.
