    [–] What exactly would Labour supporting a second referendum do for us? Magnets 13 points ago in ukpolitics

    Labour would have even less hope of winning a GE if they came out in clear support of another vote. That's why they are playing it like this, where they only "consider" all of the options.

    It keeps their core voters on side while still giving the younger and remain voters false hope.

    They are probably hoping for a larger sway to remain among the wider population before they support a second vote.

    [–] Power Management for Backup Disks Magnets 1 points ago in freenas

    Depending on the size of your dataset you could just buy an SSD, they are so cheap now if you only need 120-240GB.

    I have an SU650 in an external enclosure on another system (not freenas) and it uses 0.5w idle to 1W under load.

    <£1/year if it's idle most of the time

    2.5" spinning disks use around 2W IIRC, but maybe slightly more in a USB enclosure.


    3.5" are probably 3-5W


    Enclosures sometimes take full control of sleeping the disks so may do it after 20 seconds of no activity etc.

    You can tune the power management on freenas to stop it parking the head but it may or may not work with the usb bridge chip - some do work under linux so there is a possibility.

    sc2 had everything in 2010-2012 on twitch:

    shitloads of e-sports money being throw at it, constant events and tournaments, homestory cup, streamsniper drama.

    People just did whatever without fear of being banned.

    [–] Hitachi scraps £16bn nuclear power station in Wales (source:Guardian) Magnets 1 points ago in ukpolitics

    This is why you shouldn't read the Guardian

    As a result we will be suspending the development of the Wylfa Newydd project, as well as work related to Oldbury, until a solution can be found

    Suspended until they can find a solution (more money from the gov) not "scrapped"

    [–] Wood burners under fire in clean air plan Magnets 34 points ago in ukpolitics

    ITT people seem to be missing the points, which are clearly a good idea.

    The government will also ensure that all new stoves sold from 2022 comply with EU eco-design regulations.

    "But the technology will allow combustion higher up in the fire chamber so that re-ignites any particles of wood that are in the smoke so the emissions that come out the chimney are reduced by 80% compared to a stove manufactured ten years ago."

    The key impact of the new strategy on existing stove owners will be on fuels like wet wood, and traditional house coal, which will likely be phased out.

    Most people don't realise that a wood burning stove emits more particles per hour than a diesel truck.

    Restrict people burning wet wood and coal, while making new burners follow eco standards. Seems entirely reasonable.

    [–] Blimey. PM will lose meaningful vote on Tuesday by a majority of 228, research by @BBCPolitics finds. Number of MPs opposing up by 19 since the delay last month. For: 206, Against: 433. Magnets 4 points ago * (lasted edited 10 days ago) in ukpolitics

    This is what people expected because the current deal is so bad.

    Outcomes in most likely order:

    • delay things somehow after losing the vote (more transition periods)

    • leave with no deal

    • Germany leaves the EU

    • accept current deal

    [–] Whatever your views of what Bercow did yesterday, can we appreciate the artistry of this photo. Magnets 2 points ago in ukpolitics

    I believe this:

    Under parliamentary rules, these supplementary business motions are usually unamendable. Only the Government can change them, and unless time is set aside, Parliament does not debate them. However, a cross-party group of MPs, headed by Dominic Grieve, has tabled an amendment which would shorten the time in which the Government must return to Parliament if it loses the meaningful vote. Despite the conflict with the parliamentary rules, and opposition from many MPs, the Speaker selected the amendment for a vote.

    stupidly weak but incredibly smart because leaks like this happen all the time and data holders are so irresponsible with protecting passwords properly

    [–] Javid questions whether migrants are 'genuine' asylum seekers Magnets 12 points ago in ukpolitics

    Same reason that when a patient turns up in A&E and needs treatment, the doctors don't ask why they chose to go to another hospital instead, and don't try and turn them away because of it. If someone is in need, they are in need. You help them first, then you sort out that sort of question later on.

    Except the person's need to access A&E is not immediately obvious on first sight.

    And the person bypassed several other hospitals on the way to yours.

    This problem has been in the making for decades due to the lack of social housing and lack of affordable homes.
