Wasn't that the plan? I guess that commitment went out the window with charging retail prices for the new Windows OS...

Payback is a bitch.
Each computing device has much greater responsibility nowadays, but the security has made NO advances.
Neither has human nature.
Success justifies all luck. Powerball, anyone?
It's quantum physics.. what do you expect?
ah ah ah
ha ha ha
being infinite in one direction is enough to scramble my brains
Right, We use the other infinite directions for two slices of bacon and toast.
You know, what I've often asked myself is, "What was there before the Big Bang?"
Probably a big: "I love you baby... really I do..."
Some things never change...
Some of us want to pepper a whore's cunt with cocaine and ride her up and
down that imaginary line between bathroom and bed while listening to Death
Metal that is so mind-blowingly loud, it is warping the hood of your prius
that is parked outside. Then we get drunk, then all of our friends come over
for more of the same. We scream, we fight, we fuck, we get so high from pills
and powders, snorting and taking a hit off of the mystery pipe until fucking 5am
in the morning. That's when we're out in front of the house pissing our bladders
empty and calling you names before we head to a diner for bacon & eggs!
I am sorry if that somehow takes away from your weekend of smoking weed
and playing on your playstation followed by spells of intense masturbation.
But again, some people have lives, even when you don't.
...Easy for you to say on a cop's salary.
Medicare.com went for just under US $5 million last year. Sex.com and Bet.com were million dollar hits.
Insurance.com went with some other minor assets for over $35 million in 2010.
It figures. Medicare, Porn, Gambling, and the Protection Racket can all afford to pay ridiculous ransoms because its what they do best... take your money!
"You can no longer buy a domain name from Millin. Instead, he will work with your company (or your idea for a company) to build out a product, then he'll lease or lend you one of his domain names in exchange for

Millin4Millions.com is not for sale, no matter how much you beg and gobble....
I'm always fascinated by the details which seem somewhat abstract (i.e. 450 in 3 days in 3 cities with 90% market share). Is it numerological or statistical in its significance to the Chinese? Oh, I can make up a million wrong reasons why, but I though maybe someone might know...
Yes, indeed. Fluorinated chemistry is potentially lethal - Fluorine is the most reactive of all elements and has martyred many chemists.
Mod parent up.
This sounds like a thoughtful reflection on parental experience and it rings true.
Either way you decide to go with a child's education, the issues raised here are sensible considerations.
Disclaimer: My kids attend public school, but I do a lot of supplemental home schooling on the weekends, focusing on stuff the schools don't teach
...Aha! Perhaps therein lies the answer: The parents.
Education is best implemented with effective parenting, but rarely benefits the student without it. The Family's value for learning has more to do with the success and/or failure of a child's education than the quality of the school or the faculty. In other words, an education will be as effective as the parents ability to instil its value to the child. Rewards and incentives transform over time, and each student is ultimately self motivated regardless of the quality of carrots and sticks. In a sense, all schooling is ultimately home schooling. Perhaps the school provides the extra-curricular opportunities of most value; beyond the minimum public standard of curricula.
I thought they called them Mousekateers.
