We paid OVH for the renewal of our company's domain name several weeks before its expiration. This domain hosted our google apps for business and more. We received an invoice and bank statements for that. OVH never renewed with the registry.
We only got to know about this because of a standard email warning from the country's registry (not OVH as a registrar) itself about quarantaine and expiry!
We spent over eight hours over several days talking to OVH. I have been able to verify that the problem was on the side of OVH only, and not on the registry's side at all.
In the end, we made a direct payment to the registry to make sure the domain was not deleted.
Meh, waste is relative. I run KDE programs, Gnome programs, and a couple of other random hodgepodge things at my personal whimsy, and I'm still only using 2.5GB of the 8 on my system for non-cache work, and over a third of that is just Firefox. I've got 3.5GB literally sitting empty, according to free. I can't even fill the caches. Running another set of depedencies to get me a noticeably better terminal emulator would cost me virtually nothing real.
Of course if you're in difference circumstances the answer changes. But there's no particular virtue in using a worse terminal so that more of your RAM sits there with lots of 0s in it.
Well, fwiw my local Debian Jessie claimed terminology along with dependencies (that weren't already installed) would claim 24MB. Pretty steep for a terminal. I tried opening one each of Terminology and Sakura[s] -- and as far as I can tell, running:
i=0;while true; do echo $i;i=$((i+1));done
is, if anything, slower in Terminology. Big caveat: I've just installed kernel 4.1.6 and while I've recompiled/installed the proprietary fglrx AMD driver, I'm not entirely convinced most OpenGL apps work as they should.
Because the sun attracts the probe (and vice versa). Or equivalently the probe is climbing out of the gravity well of the sun loosing kinetic energy in exchange for potential energy in the sun's gravitational field.
