I got hooked on a fantasy series by somebody I'd never heard of because they made the first book available for $0. "Meh, for free, I'll give it a whirl!" After that I paid full price for the other 5 books.

Just like the street corner drug dealer... Not Even Once!

Ross Ulbricht Faces New Drug Charges 102

Alleged Silk Road mastermind Ross Ulbricht now faces additional drug-related charges. Ars Technica gives a run-down on the run-down, and shows an array of driver's licenses that can't look good to a jury: According to a 17-page amended indictment filed late Thursday night, the government introduced one count of “narcotics trafficking,” of “distribution of narcotics by means of the Internet,” and of "conspiracy to traffic in fraudulent identification documents." Previously, Ulbricht was indicted in February 2014 on four formal criminal offenses: narcotics trafficking conspiracy, continuing criminal enterprise, computer hacking conspiracy, and money laundering conspiracy. Ulbricht pleaded not guilty to the previous charges, and he seems likely to plead not guilty to the new ones as well.

You have indeed discovered the unvarnished truth, solar is not viable in terms of cost and this is unlikely to change anytime soon.

Not true at all. The subsidies and tax write-offs and other benefits continue to pile up. Someone who is paying full retail for his panels is just someone who is too lazy to file the appropriate paperwork.

Yes... because /no one/ pays for subsidies and tax write-offs. They're totally, magically, free!

It's horribly problematic to alarm every minute when I want the alarm sound off! Meetings, presentations, movie theaters. I even silence it even at work in my cube. I love my droid multi-color and flash rate notification LED. Different colors for different types of notifications and a different flash rate for "important" people's SMS.
