Steam is coming to a new operating system
"As we’ve been working on bringing Steam to the living room, we’ve come to the conclusion that the environment best suited to delivering value to customers is an operating system built around Steam itself. SteamOS combines the rock-solid architecture of Linux with a gaming experience built for the big screen. It will be available soon as a free stand-alone operating system for living room machines."

No Nobel prize. Less range than a Prius. Lame.
Well played sir.
The original sentence was probably something like "I like a bagel with my coffee."
I think his hovercraft may be full of eels actually.
Yeah, I heard that too. It's time I start playing with some high brightness IR LEDs. Hell, you could even spell "idiots" and they wouldn't be able to do anything - it's not illegal to carry a battery and a bunch of LEDs.
I think having "PIRATE" spelt out across the back of my jacket would be brilliant, and it could result in a very funny conversation as you feign ignorance and they try and explain what they have seen.
I ran into the installation size surprise when I was testing server 2008 - I was pretty surprised when the system partition was about 20gb a few days after install without me installing anything on it.
This is how they fit 20gb onto a 3gb DVD.
So its using hardlinks, but the kicker is I think every installer, and explorer report the size as multiples of the actual file size.
Id love somone to tell me that I'm wrong here, as that seems pretty crazy to me!
A fairly common reaction when explaining to people that they had been infected, was to be shouted at for "sending my PC viruses".
Sadly I think that before any quarantine plans can be implemented a pretty major shift in user perception must occur - otherwise the level of bitching that will occur will be apocalyptic.
However, I don't work in support anymore - I say go for it
Running under its own power
Perpetual motion ?
Yeah, either I haven't had enough coffee today or they are promoting the wrong aspect of the project here.
That will Teach me to google it and post the first link.

See below. Everyone in Clearwater MUST vote. Every vote will be needed to be
sure Hibbard gets re-elected. The alternative is Rita Garvey who is an SP.

Lunch with your preferred Presidential candidates for a high price?
ONE SEAT LEFT
I have arranged a private one-hour luncheon with Ron Paul on 11/28 in St.
Pete when he will be in town for the CNN/YouTube Republican debate.
This luncheon is reserved for $1000+ donors to Ron Paul's presidential
campaign. 19 people so far have paid and confirmed and will have the honor
and pleasure of having lunch and communicating with Ron Paul directly.

Go the the HELP committee website. The link is here.
Here you will see the names of the Committee members on the left hand
of the page. Please go to the individual websites of the Republican =
(this will take just a bit of leg work on your part by putting their =
into Google) and calling their office or sending a fax to them (email is =
least effective) stating your opposition to S. 1375 The Mother's Act.
Currently, the law prohibits political campaign activity by charities and churches by defining a 501(c)(3) organization as one "which does not participate in, or intervene in (including the publishing or distributing of statements), any political campaign on behalf of (or in opposition to) any candidate for public office."

I downloaded myself a copy and started looking through them. I found an interesting one on pages 47-48.
Karin Pouw of OSA of CofS writes a message.
It's forwarded by Michael Genung. He's the guy who runs ACSR, Association for Citizens Sociel Reform. http://www.citizensforsocialreform.org/ ["CSR Background and Philosopy: CSR was founded in 2001 by a group of Scientologists and other like-minded individuals concerned with the escalating social ills in society. CSR's purpose is to work with in the field of public policy to bring about more effective and humane solutions to these social ills of illiteracy, criminality substance abuse and general decay of character."]
Then it's forwarded by Doyle Mills, of LEAF fame (Letters to the Editor Attack Force).
Then it's forwarded by Mary C. (possibly one of two Mary C's I'm thinking of, but unsure).
Then it's forwarded by Mike Kaplan, another person who runs an email list and forwards CCHR type stuff to CofS members.
If that ain't stringing a line from the CofS to CCHR and the CofS front group ("grassroots") movements, then I don't know what is!
Apologies in advance as the Enturbulation servers will not be up to a slashdotting so the Coral Cache link is here Enturbulation Discussion (already cached for you)
ANYONE CAN REPORT TAX FRAUD DIRECTLY TO THE IRS : http://www.irs.gov/compliance/enforcement/article/0,,id=106778,00.html It does require that you print out and mail in an actual hardcopy, but it does not require you to identify yourself.
Just a casual user passing on a message from the Enturbulation forum, this is already out there, there's no reason to attack the messenger."
