Nov 9 1400 hrs PST - U.S. tests the National Emergency Broadcast System for the first time nation-wide. Previously only local activations and system tests were done (any other former broadcasters rememebr the "Red Envelope" prominently posted in the booth?).
Coincidence? I think not....
I've been married for 20 years and we still have sex a few times a week.
Please define "we".... You and your wife? Together or separately?
"Was it a real windows 2000 cd, or just a pirated cd? "
Wouldn't matter, necessarily....
IIRC, late-90's computers didn't alway allow for booting off of the CD, albeit it was becoming more common.
I used to manage a RS back in the 90's (when we had to hit metrics for name gathering) and the main reasons for the name was 1) to gather addresses for the direct mail/catalog campaigns and 2) to personalize the receipts for TSP (the internal Service Plan. Additional benefits were return tracking, etc.
Once they stopped the Direct Mail (gee, I miss those flyers...), the company cancelled the name collection.
I agree the company has lost a lot of their "charm" as THE place to go for electronic accessories (wires, adaptors, etc) and become "just another electronics store" amongst a dwindling sea of retailers.
Anyone else know if they still require employees to pass Specialty Certification tests? Managers were required to pass all of them (I seem to recall that there were like 6 or 8 of them...).
Heard a noise at night? just go to the tablet on the wall, scan the cameras, and alert the authorities if necessary.
Good info on the flights are found on NASA's Website http://www.hq.nasa.gov/office/pao/History/x-33/dc-xa.htm
