That is great!
My "today" (very mild) version of that:
Last night, I connected one of my Raspberry Pi's to a 7 year old 32" television. I then connected, over the Internet, to an NVR with 11 surveillance cameras. Ran video at 1080. All cameras run and record 24/7 at 15 FPS. The (large) thumbnails looked good, with smooth video. Bringing a single camera up gave smooth (as much as 15 FPS does) and good playback of recordings. All this with a $35 computer (NVR is a 5 year old computer bought via eBay).
Normally, I run the Pi headless and connect via tightvnc and openvpn.
If you can keep your head while those about you are losing theirs, perhaps you don't understand the situation.
In many ways the Raspberry Pi is the modern version of the Elf. As much of a computer as you can get out of minimal hardware and expandable in every direction. No wonder that both are built around RISC processors which try to be microprocessors and microcontrollers at the same time.
I have lived with several Zen masters - all of them were cats.
His last invention was an evil Lasagna. It didn't kill anyone, and it actually tasted pretty good.
I've spent the day refactoring some old code and after 7 hours of moving bits and pieces for re-usability finally have the first successful tests...hooray! I'm on a roll and would like to keep going...but glance at the clock reminds me that it's quitting time and I have a Christmas Eve dinner to attend with the missus in a couple of hours. I'd really rather code for another hour or two, but suppose I'd better keep the wife happy...I can always get back to it later tonight!

No, if premise #1 is not fullfilled
If something has a solution... Why do we have to worry about?. If it has no solution... For what reason do we have to worry about?
Help me to understand what I'm saying, and I'll explain it better to you
Rating helpful answers is nice, but saying thanks can be even nicer.
One argument is that information about your potential health problems (for example) can be secretly sold by the companies who keep the data bases. This sounds perfectly reasonable to me. The data bases can also be hacked for nefarious purposes. I'll just stay away - far away!
As I have the week off, I've decided to take the time to do something about my aging Server 2008 R2-based WSUS server - instead of migrating or updating it to Server 2019, I'm recreating it from scratch. Also part of the reason I want to re-do it is that I'd like to tinker with the WSUS database (finding WSUS's built-in reports rather lacking), and by default, WSUS creates its own little private SQL instance and MS goes out of its way to make it unnecessarily hard to access (not that it's impossible - just not straightforward). I have a VM dedicated to hosting SQL databases, so it's the perfect candidate for doing just that.
My bandwidth is rather limited--which is the reason I use WSUS at all - to keep all my systems - physical or virtual - up to date without having to download the same updates over and over again. I can't begin to calculate how much bandwidth it's saved me.
One of the problems however is that, even though you can deselect any product or software category you're not interested in, there's still thousands of updates you still might not need - it doesn't automatically deselect (or give you options to deselect) superseded updates, betas, things for ARM64 or Itanium, etc.
I've been using PowerShell cmdlets to decline updates that should be skipped for these and other reasons. While it's not a complex process, I am spending quite a bit of time exploring various properties of updates to try to determine whether they should be accepted or declined.
My question: Would there be enough interest in this sort of script to make it worth posting here, perhaps as a tip? I don't intend to put a lot of spit and polish into this - basically put something together that shows just enough to get someone going.
