I once travelled from Amsterdam to Poitiers. Until Brussels the TGV ran over normal rails at some 140 km/h, then quickly reached Paris Nord. Then it took an hour to get to the south of the city by taxicab, where another TGV left to the destination.

Yes, in densely populated West-Europe trains offer an advantage and air travel is popular for trans-oceanic destinations.

It is of course a worrying development if a religious group is able to hold a conference at a prestigious university to give its ideas a scientific guise.

If this cannot be prevented, try holding a scientific conference on the topic of creationis, thus in contrast to what gstoddart holds, analyse the subject through scienfic discourse.

You sure should do that.... if your contract states that the manufacturer guarantees that their product contains no bugs:-(

More likely your contract states that the customer is responsible for testing the software before accepting and paying for it.

It's a naive, domestic operating system without any breeding, but I think you'll be amused by its presumption.
