Comment: My mail situation (Score 1) 582

by Gambit Thirty-Two (#42816395) Attached to: US Postal Service Discontinuing Saturday Mail Delivery

I'm in a situation where I don't have local mail delivery, and I have certain hours I can pick up my mail. My work hours and drive time for work make it so i can ONLY get my mail on saturdays, by going to the post office. I need to make sure this won't effect me greatly, otherwise I am going to be in a TON of trouble when it comes to my bills.


+ - Modded XBox 360's now banned from Live

From what I understand, all the various 'stealth' techniques used have failed to bypass it thus far. http://www.dailytech.com/article.aspx?newsid=7339 has the details. Bad news if you have a modded machine. Maybe we'll all need two, one for Live and one for general use. It sounds like a brave if foolhardy move from Microsoft though given the fickle nature of the market."

I promote the stuff I use simply because if people DONT use it, the developers arent going to fix stuff and put new features forward.

It doesnt matter if I find application is XYZ and its 100% perfect, if there are only 12 users worldwide, and theres only 1 guy whose working on fixes/developement of it.

All programmers are playwrights and all computers are lousy actors.
