Laptops energy consumption: save or not

Hard Disk and Optical Drive

Because of the boredom during the trip it is possible to start hard disk sorting (removing a big amount of files from one directory to another).

The time of the unmanaged mode of the mobile computer when HDD is maximum loaded

The time of the unmanaged mode will reduce at 20-25 %, but for this you should to copy files between logical disks during 2-3 hours.

The time of the unmanaged mode of the mobile computer when read and save data on DVD

Reading and Saving on DVD will demand more energy than during the same operations with hard disk. Notice, that saving expends a little more time than reading.

The time of the unmanaged mode of the mobile computer when read and save data on CD

More interesting results were for CD. More data flow DVD comes from DVD, more loaded RAM and Hard disk. But operating with CD needs more energy! And reading consumes it more than saving! Why? We suppose it occurs because of speed rotation of the disk. The drive speeds quicker during the operation with CD than with DVD especially when reading. So it is more saving and effective to use DVD. It'll be interesting to know results for Blue-ray. But it is difficult to do because of low popularity of this format.

Yep! I find what you're saying to be true, at least in the mjtroiay of cases. Considering the years of research and developement, not to mention huge wads of cash, gone into developing both the hardware and the code to control it, some things are better left in-house. And I serioulsly doubt that your coffe would taste any better should your microwave oven run Linux. Nevertheless the call for free code has never been louder than it is today, arguably voices were louder in the sixties, but that was for free love / drugs / whatever, they did not care about code back then, that was military stuff. And, yes, the free code has not only a niche to fill but also a market, these are though largely concerned with exstensions to available technology. How about interfacing your server farm to a display system? Your RAID array to your printer? Hell, how about connecting your toaster to the coffee machine, and the fridge, and to your alarm clock for a timed, ready to eat brekfast?The point is that there is great benefit to be found in leaving your options open, now this may not necessarily mean open code but at least developing coherent standards. Cue the magic teenagers. As long as they have handles to grab they may yet be able to have your breakfast ready the minute you're human enough get out of bed, but leaving your code open is like telleing the world Hey! Put me out of business will ya! .No seriously, I believe that the call for open code for systems, best developed in-house with complete documentation of the involved technologies is a cry from a generation with hubris, not to mention used to getting the way they want whenever they want it . Bloody communists , some may say. Well, I'm inclined to agree. If you find the technology to be inferior you'd be better off calling in some hardware professionals (if you're not one of those as well), develop the product, insert your own code, and pretty soon you'll be running to the patent office and fighting neverending court battles to retain your livelihood. You see, now you're like that corporation you wanted to open their code for you, and you're afraid of competitors buying some other teen's knowledge to throw you out of business.Well here's a tip. Let your hobby stay a hobby. If you're confident enough that your solution is better, go into business and prove that it is.And if your proof is good enough I may one day wake up to a set breakfast without having to hire a Polish maid.Oh yeah, I'd probably still be late for work

Could you coseidnr putting your book trailers on teacher tube and some of the other book trailer sites? Most schools block youtube and so we can't use the trailers with the kids or linked to our book blogs.
