Whole grains also slow the break down and absorption and are a good thing. Don't eat simple sugars.
I'm diabetic (type 2). While this is generally true, in practice I've found that wheat of any kind and rice of any kind will send my blood sugar up unless I keep my portion sizes very small. Nowadays I usually just avoid the both.
Ok. So what do the Nazca lines point to? I'm not saying it's aliens but if you're going to talk like a bitch, you're going to get called out for it.
Since the Paracas culture immediately preceded the Nazca culture in the same region, my first guess would be that they used them for the same purpose.
It's quite a difference whether an internet outage means (more or less) only external mail and browsing doesn't work or that you can just send everyone home until it's fixed.
There are numerous in-house scenarios where this is an issue as well. Any business hosting their infrastructure in a colo can run into this. So will any business large enough to have multiple locations, as they may not have anything beyond file and print services located in the remote locations (which might still be pretty big).
For that matter, there are potential issues hosting your applications in house. I've seen facilities issues (everything from A/C failure to flooding) bring down in-house data centers for extended periods of time.
And you can use it anywhere. And it has USB 3.0 speed. And it won't be data mined by Google.
If you have a fire or flooding and you're not keeping the backup at an offsite location, you've also lost all your data.
And if someone hacks your card, they blame you (because you must have given away your PIN) and you have no way to prove it.
Incorrect. There are a variety of ways that your PIN can be compromised, and banks are well aware of that. Anything from shoulder surfing to keystroke logging will work.
My credit card (with chip and PIN) was skimmed last year (based on the timing I believe from a restaurant in Winnipeg) and my bank removed all of the charges with minimal intervention on my part.
My question is
Yeah, I'm concerned about this as well. Weren't free software updates one of the selling points of HP's Procurve line of network gear?
On the bright side, I gave up on HP printers after my last one died a couple years ago.
I'm curious how often you had to update firmware on servers that were out of warranty?
I'm going to have to see how this plays out, but it could be a pain in the ass for somebody like me who has to install firmware on *new* servers for customers. *I* don't have a support contract even if the customer does. (Which doesn't mean that there won't be some way around it.)
It means all these business idiots will stop saying "event horizon".
Yeah. But in twenty years.
Your statements seem to imply that GPS satellites are in geostationary orbit. They are not. The system would not work if they were.
Which is true, but a little quick google searching shows that relativistic effects do indeed need to be taken into account with GPS satellites (such as this link).
it's a government contract. they'll get their money whether they produce the talent and a working product or not. there is no incentive for them to do anything but collect that government money.
Like CGI will be?
You're missing the point. As you pointed out, legality and known purity is not going to prevent all overdoses, but it would prevent some.
If you're buying drugs on the street, it's difficult to tell exactly how pure. This means that by taking the same mass of a particular drug, you're not going to get precisely the same amount of active ingredient. If your latest dose is sufficiently purer than your typical dose, then you may overdose.
What complicates this is that many addicts will go off of their drug of choice for a period of time and lose their tolerance. When they start using again, their bodies can't handle as much but they try to use their old dose and overdose.
If I were looking for Time Travelers I would start with a very detailed background check on anyone that's ever won a major lottery.
