... as we know it. Where there is lots of energy there could be something to make use of it.
1 point of call and 1 place to run things properly
Good argument against separating IT. What happens when they are busy (hint: IT is always busy). Who decides what "properly" means (hint: IT thinks they do).
IT is separate in most organizations because it requires specialized training which they don't want to give to everyone in the company. The reason Engineering groups are always at odds with IT is because they feel they don't need to go to someone else for things they know how to do. In a TV station, why should Engineering run and maintain every piece of equipment EXCEPT computers?
Why do you think insurance companies will be happy about this? If accident rates go down, payouts go down, which means premiums go down, which means profits go down. Insurance companies aren't in business to keep you safe, they're in business to sell you their product; which you are required to buy.
Its a brake before the accident. Afterwards its a break.
Climbing Everest has a death rate of something like 5% depending on how you measure it, yet there's a waiting list.
Of existing launch vehicles, I think India's PSLV is cheapest for putting a medium sized payload into orbit with good success (18/20). Wikipedia says around $17M per launch.

I would like a more stylish ear tag when you start doing this on humans, please.
So that when the government analyses your HD it doesn't make a noise. A good way to check your computer for malware/spyware/viruses is to leave it alone and put your ear near the HD. If it makes a sound something you didn't tell it to do is going on.
Like scheduled backup or updates, you mean?
You should be buying their new 1.5 TB drives. Those 1.5 gb drives must be at least 12 years old.
Awesome list. I'll just add one more: block "minor enhancements that shouldn't affect the schedule" no matter who suggests them.
You can sue them, but only for the damages that you suffered due to the takedown. I guess you could hire RIAA lawyers to calculate the damages for you.
Have you tried science.slashdot.org?
NIH Restricts Use of Chimpanzees in Labs - and how is this a science article?
My cable company only has dynamic IP for home. Minimum cost is $29.95/mo (5 Mbit down). The cheapest business internet with a static IP is $87.99/mo.(20 Mbit down, 3 Mbit up).
Can someone please explain this troll to me?
The first line is to thank you for being a friend.
The second line is a metaphor describing life as a journey.
The third line is very deep. You can meditate for hours on the connections with the first two lines: cosmonauts obviously take long journeys, for example.
The second stanza is again a metaphor, this time on life being a party and the importance of having good friends. This again connects with the sentiments from the first stanza.
