Q&A: Is there anyone else in here who likes to read the adult animated magazine Heavy Metal?

Question by .: Is there anyone else in here who likes to read the adult animated magazine Heavy Metal?
I especially like to read the Requiem Vampire Stories in this awesome magazine. I’ve been addicted to this magazine ever since I was a teenager. Do you like the Requiem Vampire stories? Also, I wonder how long the artist who creates this particular story will continue doing it?

This may not have anything to do with anything – not sure – but if you like that sort of artwork you might or might not know that the catalyst for it was the animated movie, HEAVY METAL, that came out in ’81. The artwork was more basic, perhaps, but nonetheless intriguing and did get that whole ball rolling. And Lord knows some of the music was cool, mainly Don Felder’s “Heavy Metal,” particularly when played loudly. Though Sammy Hagar’s song of the same title, that was also in the movie, was nothing to sneeze at. I sometimes play both on a radio show I co-host. God’s speed, my child.

is there any possiblites to combine cloud computing and autonomic computing?

cloud computing and autonomic computing

Answer by Greg
Anything is possible, the question is do we understand how to do it reasonably.

I think you are asking a question that isn’t suited for Yahoo Answers. If i were you i would find a tech forum to ask the question instead of hoping that someone with some actual knowledge will come along and answer.

Is there a way to share files with students without a network?

Question by : Is there a way to share files with students without a network?
I’m stumped. My instructor want’s to have a file share on the network where his students can access files for class, but the I.T. director, my supervisor, says that he can’t use the network or use ad hoc between computers (any platform. The computers we’re using happen to me iMacs, others are Windows XP machines). The first reason is because with large files and multiple students essentially streaming data at the same time would bog the network down (it’s not a very fast network and the school can’t spring for infrastructure upgrades). The second reason, the ad hoc idea, is because there’s a policy against it. No ad hoc on school computers. It would be a workaround since we can’t use the school’s network, but policies are policies.

So now I’m wondering, other than sneakernet (which is what my instructor hates to do because it takes so long at the beginning of the class), what other ideas are there? I’ve found USB flash drive duplicators on Amazon, but those are Expensive (with a capital E, natch’). Maybe something can be done with a couple of 7 port hubs and special software that automatically takes control of those hubs as a poor man’s duplicator? I know there are software solutions for doing this one flash drive at a time, but I’m thinking batch duplications, several at once to cut the time it takes to push out the files to each student. This might not be the best idea, which is why I think I’m probably unaware of better solutions. The files being copied are close to 2GB in size, smallest being about 500MB. Video files. And of course, no use of the network, period. Even for cloud storage. Any ideas?

OK, there are a couple of options.

1.) PirateBox. These motherfuckers are badass. Sit the thing down and the little bugger is like a lil’ server, nomming up and puking out whatever the hell you want it to.

2.) A LAN network. Cat5e is cheap as shit (about 5 cents a foot), so you just daisy chain a bunch of switches and profit.

3.) Patriot Memory Xporter Rage. These have transfer speeds of up to 25 or so MB/s. It may not be as fast as the other options, but if you really must put on the running shoes, these are the way to go.

Is Cloud Computing there for home users?

Question by Mukunthan Iyer: Is Cloud Computing there for home users?
is cloud computing there only for business/enterprise usage or is tat also available for home users… if yes, who all provide that, are there any open source providers, and what could be the range of tariffs for the pay only providers. Please assist me on this, as I’m keen to avail these services, if available…
Thanks, Mukunthan L.

Answer by Ol’grizzler
Hi Mukunthan L. First off this is really only in it’s infancy. It is aimed at all users , business and home as well. At the moment there are a limited number of programmes and services avalilable and no real price structures in place. I have been getting information from this site to see where it is going. http://www.nimbulus.co.uk/ten-reasons-to-move-your-data-and-IT-operations-into-the-cloud.html?utm_source=yahoo&utm_medium=cpc&utm_term=cloud%20computing&utm_content=Get%2Bthe%20Facts&utm_campaign=10%2BReasons%20-%20Geotarget%3A%20England%2C%20GB
