Any chance you can bung said script on github?
Similar experience with netvibes - it normally starts up blank on my Android phone, I just have to hit refresh. Once in a while it'll tell me I have a negative number of things unread. It has trouble keeping a consistent count of unread items between the title, the menu, and its own 'refresh' button. Oh, and the 'Load More' button appears off the end of my screen sometimes. These are mostly minor annoyances I can live with.
Google Reader never did anything wrong, though.
I suspect the lot moving to New Hampshire have enough firepower to keep however few Egyptian soldiers visit the place out for long enough. Egypt wouldn't waste the effort. They don't claim the place.
Not sure your rant about what the US govt would do to you is relevant.
The real reason its not a reasonable place to found a community is the fact its an uninhabitable inhospitable chunk of desert with no communications links.
There *ARE* unclaimed areas. Gather all the 'Liberty-minded' and ship them off to Bir Tawil:
Nobody wants it. Plenty of solar power. Bye!
I went to a hackathon and found the idea of judging and prizes pretty pointless. Took up an hour of valuable hack time. I skipped all that nonsense and went for a walk and got some fresh air for the first time in two days instead.
Why else do you think Dr Evil wanted sharks with frickin' laser beams?
Or if you are in the UK, watch "Dragon's Den". I guess its the same thing. Which came first, the sharks or the dragons?
For those who've seen neither, entrepreneurs parade in front of four or five potential investors sitting in comfy chairs with big wadges of cash. The entrepreneurs present their product, forget their business plan, stumble their lines and generally embarrass themselves. The investors grill them, and then one by one they all say "your numbers don't add up, I'm out", or "you've not got a product, I'm out", or "you've invested your house in this already? I'm out".
And now your web server has to do PHP processing on every page and every style sheet, so your load goes up. So you implement some caching. Now you have two problems.
hhuhh huhhh he said "member" hhhh all "member states"... hhuh hey Beavis, check out the state of my member.. hhuhuhuhh
Mythbusters tried to yank the axle of a car using a fixed cable but every time either their cable failed or their anchor failed. They busted the rear axle up pretty bad, but never yanked it off as seen in American Graffiti.
Is that the idea? That the HTML behind web pages isn't viewable? That web pages can't be printed? Or can't be viewed after three days?
Just go use a PDF ffs.
You work at a university and you are sorting out the email system? Well, wave bye bye to your job soon, because one day the suits will say "Hey, lets move to Microsoft's Live.EDU" and then the problem is somebody else's. [Or Google mail for organisations, of course]. Either way, the suits will wonder why university IT are doing mundane things like setting up email addresses when that can be outsourced. Cheaper.
"'Advocates of the mandate are full of evangelical zeal and are quick to portray skeptics as wicked and selfish. It's like a secular religion, based on faith in vaccine efficacy and safety.'"
No, its based on evidence of efficacy and safety.
"I myself avoid flu shots like the plague" - so what would you do if there was an outbreak of plague and there was a vaccine for it?
