the doctor told him "Bacon should come with a skull and crossbones on the label..."

Then his doctor is a retarded monkey.

Too much water will kill you, too much oxygen will kill you, too much sugar will kill you.

Anyone with more than half a brain knows that TOO MUCH (of anything) is enough to kill you.

Or perhaps the good doctor somehow believes that for millions of years the ancestors of mankind ate only fish and lean white meat?

We NEED Water
We NEED Oxygen

Bacon, not so much.

You must be one lucky individual to have never had a health
care, scare or had a friend or family member that has had one.

Breast Cancer
Cystic Fibrosis

the list goes on, but gets more depressing.

I have Alzheimer's in my family. 95% my donations go to that,
5% goes to dog specific non-profits.

And on top of that, I run a non-profit for disadvantaged families.

I got into SSD's when they just barely hit $1/gig on special as they came up on Techbargains.

I would do it again at that price. The speed up was ridiculous. 3x on my old laptop, 6-8x on my
gaming computer.

Needless to say... I had a sniiif when I started seeing them @ .50c/gig on Techbargains.... ;(

But I've been doing this a while, I've payed plenty of early-adopter tax.

I was buying $600 smartphones while 98% of people were carrying stick/flip/feature phones.

It'd be nice to have all that money back now... but meh. Yolo.

Look at all the people copying other types of accounts of wars and slavery and homicidal killing sprees...
oh wait they aren't...

I'm not voting FOR the ability to do it... I'm just saying... reducing our rights further, blah, blah, it's not
even in the US, so yay for fascism. George Orwell.

Generally XP* and older versions of windows did not rewrite the boot sector. People would install linux on a machine and then try to go back to windows and LILO would still come up. There are ways to force it to do so of course.

Ideally operating systems would ask so you could re-install a partition and not have to mess with getting everything setup.

*for Vista and Windows 7 I think you may have to as well I have not had the issue of lately

Vista and Win7 completely EFFs up a linux install.

Always try to do the linux install last.

Recovering what they do to the grub takes a bit of Live CD finagling to get back.

I wouldn't be surprised. Sedo always gave me the impression they are a seedy operation to begin with. Rumored domain frontrunning via sister division 1&1's whois search is one of them.

I always heard Sedo was GoDaddy's way of selling off domains. Have some kinda proof about the 1and1 before I cancel my 100 domains and hosting with them?
