Tracfone has the ability to buy a $20 preloaded card that gives you 120 minutes and lasts for 90 days of service. The phones are $20-$30. I use them for my kids who only need them for emergencies. You can get more minutes for cheaper if you want also. They are one of the best I have found.
The only reason it works, to some extent, is because it is not optional. Maybe they should replace the SS tax with an unemployment tax.
We end up renting most of our physical DVD's from Redbox anyway if they are not available on Zediva or Netflix streaming. I think this is a mistake by Netflix as their streaming content sucks for adults. We have to keep it for the kids though, they have great streaming for kids shows. Sounds like they want out of the DVD business.
Best advice I can give is to be honest. Screwing up and trying to hide and lie about it is the worst thing you can do. By being honest and owning up to your mistakes always calms bad situations. You don't have to socialize but don't put on your headphones and ignore a little conversation near you. You don't have to say anything but listening in will help you become familiarized with people. Ask for help but don't become needy. Look for solutions before asking for help. I have had a few people who ask for help only to start asking for help with very easy things, I normally become ignorant at that point.
$1000 is a overblown number for a new from scratch upper level gaming rig. Unless you are looking for a i7 965. Which again is overkill. $700 will get a you a excellent gaming rig. $300 is BS on a new console. The new consoles started about $599, which puts the 2 IMO even, considering the PC can do many other things.
CWmike writes "An offshore AMD foundry is having trouble ramping up on production of a new 40-nanometer graphics processing unit, forcing PC makers to delay shipments of desktop and laptop computers, AMD confirmed today. TSMC is struggling to get up to speed manufacturing AMD's 5800 series, 40-nm GPUs (graphics processing units), according to Jim McGregor, an analyst at In-Stat. He added that the foundry is in full production but so far yields are below expectation. Matt Davis, a spokesman for AMD, confirmed to Computerworld that TSMC is having issues with production of the chips. He added that it's not clear how far behind the foundry is on production expectations. "The design is sound. It's just a matter of trying to get TSMC to a point where they can yield. They're feeling the manufacturing crunch," said Davis. "We're a little bitter under yield but we're working back into a manufacturing schedule we want for these parts. TSMC can only kick them out so fast at this point." Davis said that PC vendors are being affected but declined to say how many vendors are feeling the pinch or which ones. "It's the end of the whip," he added. "[The vendors] are going to have a hard time.""

It's a generic. Costs $4 for a month's dose. The price will not go up. They may come up with a new "version" that works better though.
They use the high end i7's to try and isolate the GPU. They aren't testing the CPU but the GPU. If you look at most benchmarks when they have low settings even with a i7 the GPU's all look the same. If you turn on AA and such the GPU gets to shine and the CPU backs off. Simply put if you CPU limit your benchmark then you have not benchmarks your GPU's.
I believe the net transfer was only 4% complete after 2 hours.
It is impossible for me to multitask. For instance I cannot watch TV and listen to her tell me to take out the trash at the same time. I think that it is possible to multitask though using different senses. For instance type while reading or listening.
The ratings apply to more than just movies. They can be used for anything can be rated. Music, toys anything.
To me adding an application is the same as adding a friend. A friend can be just as destructive with the information, and alot of people will add anyone who asks to be a friend. At least the applications are bound by privacy rules. As for the not deleting all the data when you delete your account to me is something that needs to be cleaned up. If you say delete my account you should cease to exist to them, the clean up process should take care and be able to handle broken links.
Uhh, Outside of a immediate threat to others what is wrong with calling the parents in to oversee a search of a minor? Personally if I was the girls father the vice principal and nurses would not have heard the end of it.
