Do you have any proof that 80% of "Hackintosh users in the world" are here at 6:00 AM GMT?
Our software is not broken in any way. Can you suggest a better time which doesn't inconvenience anybody at all in the world?
About unanswered questions: you didn't answer why you called our host "a liar", because that is basically what you did.
I have a sufficient preponderance of circumstatial evidence, an intelligent person doesn't ask for proof when it isn't available.http://www.mapsofwor...-users-map.html
The logic is that the area with the highest percentage of computer
users per capita, the largest population, and a high standard of living
will have the largest percentage of Hackintosh users in that base.
That means an area like North America, with 525 million people, and
having 574 computers per 1,000 people and a good standard of living,
will have more Hackintosh users on the average, than an area like
the Scandinavian countries, which have 25 million people. There
is a decent per capita rate, around 500 per thousand own PCs,
and they have a good standard of living. But there just aren't very
many of them.
Again my logic is that people who compete for time on this forum
to fix there Hackintosh, have to be able to afford a PC.
China has about 1.3 billion people. But less than 17 in a 1,000 own
PCs. They have a poor standard of living. More Chinese do go to
internet cafes. The Chinese mostly use pirated Windows or the
government supports Linux. Both those OS support a lot more
hardware than Hackintosh which makes the initial hardware investment
for a PC considerably cheaper for somebody who is poor.http://royal.pingdom...-on-the-planet/
This website again points out what seems obvious to me; people
with more money who live in technologically advanced areas, own
more computers of every type, including more expensive ones, in
part because they can afford it.
You see Australia listed on both websites as having a high computer
literacy rate. Their population is 23 million. 687,000 computer per million.
About 100,000 less per capita than the US which has 325 million users.
Macs were promoted in 1984 during the Superbowl. Still the highest
concentration of Mac users is in California. People grew up seeing the
rich and academics owning Macs while they could only afford PCs.
It was a status symbol. Why do people want Hackintoshes? Is it
because they work nearly as well as Mac Pro for $1,000 less. No,
because they don't. The demand for Macs is highest in the US and
the demand for converting a PC to a Hackintosh is greatest in the
US because citizens of the US have a lot of cultural baggage about
Macs that other countries don't have, they haven't been commercialized to it.
People brag about having a Mac logo on their PC.
"Can you suggest a better time which doesn't inconvenience anybody at all in the world?"
This is a kind of lie. I never said at all or even hinted that there is a
time that doesn't inconvenience anybody at all in the world.
This thread is about scheduling maintenance so that the largest
portion of users using this website are not intefered with. That of
course means a minority will be inconvenienced. The point is, why
should the wishes of the minority or ethically disabled punish the
many and reward the few? Your question implies that a non-existent
issue is part of this discussion.
"About unanswered questions: you didn't answer why you called our host "a liar", because that is basically what you did."
Ed said: "yeah we thought we fixed this, unfortunately it's when a couple of routine tasks that we have to perform everyday kick in - I've requested to at least change the time of this to something a lots later, but in the long-term we do have a solution for this that we are working towards implementing."
Since you have said both the hardware and the software work fine,
then why isn't it fixed? It's because he hid the real reason it wasn't
already fixed behind a couple of remarks that were true as far as
they went, but did not include, obviously all of the truth. Because,
why hasn't it been adjusted already?! Hackintosh has none of the
large user base outside of the US that Linux has, it's not like Linux.
Just out of a point of interest, the time period in which the tasks are scheduled is the one with least demand.
Which country or large area places the most demand on the servers?
