In Man, Sask and Alberta there is a history of soil mismanagement as well.
My Brother works in the Oil industry and is up in Estevan now. He does not understand why so few farmers use trees as wind breaks, there are correct ways to do it, and they just don't.
(Beyond that, you have the sunniest spot in Canada, and almost no "solar" activity)

I don't remember TSMC even keeping up with AMD most of the time, and they were a node behind Intel at almost any time.

It appeared to me that TSMC may have seemed to keep up, but AMD and Intel were producing huge dies and had to have a process really fixed before they ramped. TSMC had the luxury of announcing they were at a node, while only producing simple stuff with it and fixing the bugs over a long period of time.

An Aside: In my opinion Intel chip designs have been less than spectacular given the R&D resources they have, it has been the process engineers that have given them the dominance in performance.

I am sure some people may miss the difference, I did not.... thus the title slippery slope.

Anyway, just yesterday some student up in Calgary (Canada) stabbed 5 other students to death with I knife (if I remember correctly).
Totally stupid/evil stuff, that is why they will have to take away the knives after they take away the guns. They are all "Arms"

No, Christianity does NOT have similar rules for non-Christians. Some who have claimed to follow Christianity may have, but they have to make it up. (creative excuses for discrimination seems all too common for most humans through history.)

Ghettos started as segregation of Jews, in places they were not treated well, in other gettos they were treated VERY well, encouraged to settle, and left alone to practice Judaism without restraint.

I am betting that at $139 this will very soon be considered overpriced for a locked in tab that does not have GPS or a SD card slot.

Soon we will have the new google Tablet available at 199, and a bunch of others at bargain prices to compete.

This is one "bargain" that most of us will be lucky to miss.
