"the average speed of an airliner" would be less than it's cruising speed.
Add in ticketing, security, delays, boarding, taxi time and runway congestion and it makes a lot more sense.
What a great name. Sounds like what William Shatner would introduce himself as after a few drinks...
I used to use organized
Now I can access notes from all of my devices and share them easily with associates as well.
I tried Evernote, MediaWiki, Atlassian's Confluence and a ton of other options but DokuWiki is the only solution I have found that makes managing a notebook easy, fast and enjoyable.
With an attitude like that it's no wonder the series got worse each season.
Sorry but when an errant ad can serve malware (see Yahoo) it's just not worth taking a chance.
Web site operators have the attitude that their revenue stream is more important than the integrity of their visitors computer.
AdBlock + NoScript is antivirus for the web.
A company so bad they had to change their name from Anderson Consulting to escape the stench.
More appropriately named Assenter. Next up to the gravy train will be Toillette and Douche.
When I find an interesting project still hosted on SourceForge it's almost a sure sign it's dormant and/or dead. It's become the seedy back alley of the FOSS movement.
Combine it with download.com and let them die together.
All hail to the mighty Octocat.
If you're in the market for a small workgroup color laser I highly recommend the HP LaserJet m551dn.
It's around $800 up front but with a life expectancy of >10 years it's worth every penny. The print quality is excellent, it's nearly silent, and the JetDirect has tons of features for authentication. authorization and auditing allowing restrictions to be set on usage. You can even control who is allowed to use color vs monochrome.
As for scanning the $100 HP OfficeJet 6700 works and is completely supported in Windows, OS X and Linux (with hplip).
Practicing for an Amazon Vine review?
Jeff Atwood (of CodingHorror, StackOverflow fame) praised the Surface RT:
I wish someone would put together a final analysis of the fiaSCO and all of the players. There was a lot of underground activity that Groklaw did not cover fully such as Yarro, Robbins, the 'suicides', the message board trolls (Merkey?) etc.
It would be great to see interviews from the perspective of the last rats off the ship and how they feel about the whole thing. By this time there has to be people ready to tell the real story.
There's a book waiting to be written here.
Why is it taking Virgin Galactic so long for development? Is it a financing or technical issue?
SpaceX was founded in 2002 and is already making re-supply missions to the ISS. Granted that's not quite the same as human spaceflight but it seems like there's a lot faster advancement occurring at SpaceX than at Virgin Galactic.
Didn't I hear this same rationalization about 5-10 years ago in regards to Internet Explorer?
