I was confused why it would consume anything in the first place (instead of just use the same water), but the PDF page 4 explains it: the water is “consumed” when it evaporates in the open loop part of the cooling system (and also for other reasons).

So if you don’t consider Microsoft being at fault for abusing the trust lied upon them, there is no need to migrate?

Should they have chosen the position to not follow the sanctions as set by the government? Do you think many other commercial GitHub hosting services take the same position?

I mean there are perhaps other reasons to migrate for, but I don’t think this is it (unless you are at risk of being applied sanctions to, I suppose, in which case you must).

I googled for the definition of “personal use”, and the popular interpretation seems to mean use that is e.g. non-commercial and non-research. So if you’re personally watching a video with a friend, that’s personal, but not if you ask for money.

Seems if the agreement doesn’t define the term, the popular definitions would be the intepretation chosen by the judge. Clearly nobody is going to be trialed for fraud if they share a video that way in the first place, though.

Nevertheless what the IPO says about password sharing, is it still not illegal under the U.S. Computer Fraud and Abuse Act? Other countries probably have similar stipulations.

I’m going to assume the agreement one makes with Netflix in exchange for access states to their systems states that credential sharing is not permitted. Using computer systems without authorization can indeed be against the law—while the scenario you outline is probably not explicitly forbidden.

I don’t have an answer, but you can enter unicode emojis if your operating system provides access to them 😃.

Maybe instead of moving swap to a USB stick for to preserve SSD longetivity you should monitor your SSD wear with smartctl? You may discover that you won’t be consuming a lot of it, compared to what the spec for the SSD gives you (TBW, terabytes written, is a metric to watch for).

In addition you can also install a tool such as sar (from sysstat package) to track how much you’re writing in to the SSD. You may discover that it’s not a lot.
