    Good stuff starts at the three minute mark and the bomb drops at three and a half.

    Interesting video on the new QLC vs the only TLC

    Especially the results when you copy a large number of big files like 75GB QLC falls on it`s face.

    Update: for those that don't enjoy watching B&W video, here's a color version:

    Top Secret US Military Base in Greenland | City Under the Ice: Camp Century | Documentary | 1963
    The Best Film Archives
    Published on Sep 9, 2013
    ✚ Watch my "Atomic Age" PLAYLIST: https://bit.ly/2IQudNe
    This 1963 US Army documentary film shows the story of the construction of Camp Century, a remote US military base in Greenland. The ultimate objective of Camp Century was kept secret until 1997...
    After 1945, the United States developed a geopolitical interest in Greenland. In 1946 the United States offered to buy Greenland from Denmark for $100,000,000, but Denmark refused to sell it. In 1950 Greenland was reintroduced into the sphere of military influence of the United States when Denmark agreed to allow the US to reestablish Thule Air Base, which was greatly expanded between 1951 and 1953 as part of a unified NATO defense strategy.

    In 1960, The United States Army launched a top-secret program code named Project Iceworm to build a network of mobile nuclear missile launch sites under the Greenland ice sheet. The ultimate objective of placing medium-range missiles under the ice - close enough to reach targets within the Soviet Union - was kept secret from the Danish government. To study the feasibility of working under the ice, a highly publicized "cover" project, known as Camp Century, was launched in 1960 as well. However, unsteady ice conditions within the ice sheet caused the Project Iceworm to be canceled in 1966. The Danish government did not become aware of the actual objective of Camp Century until 1997. Camp Century is now an arctic research center.

    This B&W video shows the facility built by the United States government in the 1960's called Camp Century.


    Maybe there is a purpose to the proposed purchase of Greenland?

    Maine Voices: Long-buried U.S. nuclear waste would complicate any bid for Greenland

    Would the U.S. or Denmark be responsible for cleaning up over 47,000 gallons of Cold War-era radioactive waste?
    https://www.pressherald.com/2019/08...te-would-complicate-trumps-bid-for-greenland/

    "If President Trump should ever get Denmark to sell us Greenland, perhaps he could get the former base listed on the National Register of Historic Places, and thus preclude any nuclear-waste cleanup for the purpose of preserving a part of our history."

    It the end it might cost the same, the cleanup or the purchase...

    This Abandoned Nuclear City Is Trapped Under Ice, What Happens If It Thaws?

    The abandoned ice sheet base at Camp Century, Greenland, in a warming climate

    Net ablation would guarantee the eventual remobilization of physical, chemical, biological, and radiological wastes abandoned at the site. While Camp Century and four other contemporaneous ice sheet bases were legally established under a Danish-U.S. treaty, the potential remobilization of their abandoned wastes, previously regarded as sequestered, represents an entirely new pathway of political dispute resulting from climate change.

    The Camp Century Climate Monitoring Programme
    http://www.campcenturyclimate.dk/ccc/
    In 2017 the Government of Denmark in agreement with the Government of Greenland decided to establish the Camp Century Climate Monitoring Programme. This programme, which is led by the Geological Survey of Denmark and Greenland (GEUS), includes installing automated climate sensors at the site, collecting ice-penetrating radar observations, and performing computer projections.
