I was going to say that I took it in '83 or '84 (I couldn't remember if it was junior or senior year). If Wikipedia is accurate then I must have taken in '84 then.
Just use a mirror (and turn the flash off)
I understand the comment about opportunity cost and inflation. I bought a used minivan two years ago for cash. I have a solid credit rating and qualified for a low rate. I forgot what the rate was, but it was still > 1% more than I could get with any type of cash based investment. The cash based investment options included locking money into a 4 year CD. I agree with the having cash and if investments are earning more than the loan costs, take the loan. Given the volatility of the financial markets these days, there is also merit to buy used (i.e. cheaper) and paying cash.
And if you are a Dr. Seuss fan don't forget Redfish and Bluefish.
I see what you are saying. At the same time, the company that takes the money from the customer is responsible for delivering a quality product. If Apple has a quality problem that has a root cause of a problem with one of their suppliers (Nvidia, Intel, Sony, etc.), Apple still has a quality problem. It is their job to qualify their suppliers and the components they supply. I have a 2006 Macbook Pro with an ATI Radeon X1600 card that overheats that Apple has not addresses adequately in my opinion. I can use it if I crank up the fans to 6000 RPM and don't do anything GPU intensive.
What about your OS swapfile?
I probably deserve a "whoosh" for pointing this out. In case you were really asking, by "breast cancer test" the parent means that the filtering software should not block sites that provide information about breast cancer.
What do you mean "I jailbroke the phone"? I was just looking at these nice new iPhones and testing out the browser. All I did was surf to a website that my friend told me to checkout. You mean I changed the software on the phone by doing that? How? Is there some type of vulnerability that can allow remote code execution on my phone just by browsing a website? I thought these things were magical...
I have a first gen iPod touch that I bought soon after they came out. The product still works great. The battery life has decreased somewhat. I don't expect it to get iOS4 or its new features. I understand your point about the hardware. However, it would be nice to get a maintenance release of the 3.x OS for that device (not sure what number they were at) that fixed the 30 odd security vulnerabilities that were fixed in iOS4. I haven't explicitly checked for an update, but I haven't seen any news about it either.
Has Clearwire started encrypting the wireless information yet, or is it still counting on security through obscurity? I had inquired about the encryption used by the service and got the run around with the eventual "that is proprietary information". Needless to say, I did not sign up.

New features include virtualization memory de-duplication, a rewrite of the writeback code faster and more scalable, many important Btrfs improvements and speedups, ATI R600/R700 3D and KMS support and other graphic improvements, a CFQ low latency mode, tracing improvements including a 'perf timechart' tool that tries to be a better bootchart, soft limits in the memory controller, support for the S+Core architecture, support for Intel Moorestown and its new firmware interface, run-time power management support, and many other improvements and new drivers. See the full changelog for more details."
An anonymous reader writes "Controlling computers with our minds may sound like science fiction, but one Australian company claims to be able to let you do just that. The Emotiv device has been garnering attention at trade shows and conferences for several years, and now the company says it is set to launch the Emotiv EPOC headset on December 21. PC Authority spoke to co-founder Nam Do about the Emotiv technology and its potential as a mainstream gaming interface." One wonders what kind of adoption they expect with a $299 price tag.
How did you insure your iPhone against loss? I am curious as I ended up with a SquareTrade third party warranty that covers damage including water damage. I would still be SOL if I lost my iPhone.
But the real question is "Did you lose any data"??? I am getting better about letting the confusion of "lose" vs. "loose" slide. When I see it three times in a single post, I had to say something.
Since all the backup data in encrypted, then what's the problem?
