Comment: Re:Videos for future moments (Score 2) 698

I was thinking along this same path. I was thinking recording singing happy birthday, for each birthday up to 21. Maybe sing some Christmas Carols (or whatever religion you might practice). Try to do some videos that would be joke related, meaning you provide the joke on video (and then pause) your wife responds (in real life) and you provide punch line (on video). Might actually great fun.

Youtube and Facebook May Be Banned In Turkey, Again 57

Taco Cowboy writes "Istanbul (dpa) — Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan is considering banning YouTube and Facebook after local elections at the end of this month, according to remarks carried by local media Friday. It may, or may not be related to the criticisms arising from (not-yet verified) leaked recordings of Mr. Erdogan's involvement with corruption. 'We will not let YouTube and Facebook destroy our nation. We will take measures, including closure,' said Erdogan, who has previously made comments against social media sites. YouTube had been banned in the country for two years and was recently unblocked."

I would think that your premiums should go down.

I believe that a portion of the premiums that I pay go to a state uninsured fund, that hospitals draw from to pay for uninsured people that visit the emergency room.

With everyone having insurance now, there would no longer be a need for the state to collect and disperse the funds.

Of course I am talking about the state of Maryland, so if the funds are no longer needed for uninsured, the state will flush the money down Baltimore.

And the associates are rewarded by that profit directly in two ways.

First, if they contribute to their 401K, the company match is in Verizon stock equivalent. Once each quarter, the dividend is paid directly to the associate's 401K as additional Verizon stock equivalent.

Secondly, each spring, every associate received a corporate profit sharing award.

Affording, has zero to do with it.

Journal: Fios Upgrade

Journal by GateGuy

I recently had my FIOS connection upgraded to 35/35. I actually see the speed being around 42/35. Constantly.

It came as part of an employee plan. I basically get almost all FIOS tv channels, 35/35 internet, home phone and wireless (4 phones on the family share plan) for $200.

The "King of All Computer Mice" Finally Ships 207 Screenshot-sm

An anonymous reader writes "The much-anticipated, much-mocked 18-button joystick mouse from WarMouse is now shipping. The press release features an impressive set of user quotes from game designer Chris Taylor, new SFWA president John Scalzi, and a doctor who runs a medical software company. Crazy or not, it's obviously more than just a gaming mouse."

There is no distinction between any AI program and some existent game.
