When you're used to enter pin code in your country, everything works fine. You move to the US for vacation want to fill the car tank and the machine ask for your zip code. You can't do anything. If you're lucky a cashier is available if not you have to find another station.
If it was easier I maybe had time to identify and patch the thunderbird bug I was annoyed about.

if you can store hundred why is there is no way to sort you book without spending HOURS, it's a nightmare if you have multiple book by same author, multiple book with same name or some public domain book which are not well tagged (using search when your not sure of the book title is crazy).
I've used it for some technical books it's not always good. The writer have to do extra work to make it readable. ebook pages are smaller it works for full text but not when you have some diagrams, source code... Lot of technical book have hyperlinks to different chapters which is nice, but sometime you hit a link instead of turning page. BUT ebook reader give you the search tool which is really nice for finding references.
It's even more surprising that the same customers who ask for everything to be customizable accept to have completely generic windows stations sometimes even with default background or accept the new office with ribbons, which is a big change, more easily than you product where an icon moved.
When you talk with java programmer it usually go to "in java I can do an HTTP connection but in c++ you can't"
But price fixing is a double-edged sword.
The Publisher choose the price of the book ( depends of the country sometimes it's a range ).
Every bookstore buy the books at the same prices so you your local book-store even in small cities can compete with amazon.
Publisher support part of the risk of book pricing. If publisher want store to have more stocks of his books he make a deal with store of quantities and he have to buy back unsold items
For the books ordered by the bookstore the publisher have to buy them back too (not full price because of transport...)
It's not perfect but it keep local store, and when you see a book somewhere you can buy it directly because you know that's it will be useless to wait, go to amazon and buy it as it will be the same price.
Due to the very limited number of test conditions, we cannot draw robust conclusions about differences in power draw among browsers running Flash® and HTML5. We recommend conducting additional testing of a larger set of Flash® and HTML5 websites to draw more robust conclusions about how these technologies impact computer power draw.
It's good to start some energy efficiency ranking. Windows 8 (all tests are on that platform) have some very nice feature to helps developer on power consumption. My guesses is that no-one is using them as you need Win8 specific code but if somebody like microsoft try to MAYBE we could see some real differences.
This law was to find your family members after long lost of contacts (years). It was to help family member reconnect after end of WW1 WW2 and after the end of colonisation in Asia and Africa. The administration do the research find the person, the ask him/her if he want to reconnect with you and if he/she wants give you the address. It's stopped because fewer and fewer people use it in the last decade.
If someone is missing, police still do the research.
