Same situation here, and for the same reasons. I access my mail almost exclusively by IMAP in Thunderbird, so there would be no difference in the user interface if I switched to GMail (Plus, the security is better: Yahoo! still doesn't in this day and age support https access to its web interface. Terrible).
The creator of this, Rob Rhinehart, is a software engineer, not a nutritionist or a dietician. His background is probably the reason why he got the idea to do that clever little marketing twist which geeks find appealing. Honestly, you make it sound like nobody ever had the idea to make a meal substitute. I'm not going to waste my time comparing costs with the meal replacement you mention, because I'm sure I could easily find something similar and cheaper, but you wouldn't accept the comparison because you don't know it.
Yes, I run Debian stable now for that very reason. I realized after I posted that it was rather dumb to compare security updates to program updates. With that said, I'm not sure how I am supposed to take your comment Ubuntu!=Linux. How is that addressing anything that I have said? I'm not trying to bash any distribution in particular, I like apt, I think it's the best packaging system out there in the Linux world right now, and I like Debian. However, I just wanted to point out that the update process on Windows is often a lot smoother than what most people on desktop-oriented Linux distributions experience. On Windows, you update most of your programs by hand, but hardly anything at all ever breaks. On Linux, everything is automated, but if your distribution releases anything more than security patches, chances are high you're going to see some breakage which may not be fixed until the next major release. Good luck fixing what just broke.
I used to run Linux on my desktop (and I still run it on one of my laptops), and honestly Linux has nothing, nothing to envy to Windows in regards to troublesome updates. True, updates to Linux are to the whole environment, while you have to update nearly everything by hand on Windows, but at least on Windows the programs still work after the update. On Ubuntu and once or twice Debian testing, I've had the following software stop working: Nvidia driver (no gui, joy), mpd, OSS4, SSHFS, dm-crypt
What makes you think it will be cheaper to revive the species once it is extinct? The rhinos are already being taken care of since they are in a zoo, it's probably not very expensive to try to mate them together at the same time as feeding them and providing for their needs. If it was so easy to restore lost species by cloning or restoring frozen eggs, maybe we would have done it already. But I doubt it has ever been done.
Well, if you hit a cyclist and don't even notice it, which is why you "ran", maybe you should not be driving, accident or not.
Well, I just read the second paragraph of my quote, and the defense says the opposite of the prosecution. We'll have to wait until the trial goes on to know what evidence there is for either case, but a blind statement saying that "all evidence suggests he did" seems premature at best.
once Martin jumped on him and started bashing his head against the pavement (as all evidence suggest he did)
I'm not sure where you got that from. The wikipedia article linked to in the summary mentions about the opening statement for the trial, and I quote, "The prosecution's statement focused on the lack of evidence of bodily harm to both Zimmerman and Martin (...)".
Sorry, I misunderstood you post because I did not read it in the context of the OP. I thought you meant to say to proponents of private healthcare argued that somehow organ transplants would have been faster under "their" system. Now I see you simply stated in which circumstances someone could die waiting for surgery under "our" system. Again, my apologies.
As another poster said, a link to back that kind of assertion would be appreciated, along with an explanation of how a private healthcare system is supposed to speed up the process of finding a compatible donor for an organ transplant. But then, the post I was replying to said nothing of the sort, so I will not go on a limb and risk making a straw man of that person's position.
How long will you have to wait to get it? Canada, NZ & UK have pretty long waiting lists for expensive procedures (don't know about other countries), and people regularly die waiting for them.
Funny, I live in Canada, and I never heard of that. You might want to call the local newspapers, they would certainly be interested in this. There must be a liberal conspiracy to hide it all. In all honesty, I think it's sad that you're willing to believe this crap. The truth is, there are people here who choose to pay for treatments in private healthcare facilities, but it's always for non life-threatening procedures when they don't want to wait.
Different people find different things funny. Personally, I thought the replies were depressingly boring. "I'm coming to pick you up from school right now!" Yawn.
Yes, I meant to say that they provide a video, not a demo. My mistake.
A cursory glance at the project webpage would have shown you that their team has worked on at least a dozen game, and has a combined experience of 35 years in video game development. They also have made a demo which, in my opinion, looks pretty cool. I'm not sure that flinging names like college kids is deserved in this case. I am also curious as to what extra guarantees you would expect to give your backing to a similar project. After all, if the project succeeds, there will be no further kickstarter fundraiser for the next ones (hopefully).
