If it's BYOP why would you buy the phone from the carrier?

And... some additional info on band 12, managed to remember the site I'd found most useful.
They also have some information in the terms of coverage map, but it's not very detailed.
Most likely you'll need a new phone. It's a new frequency so there's different requirements on the hardware and old phones don't have hardware that supports it.
I'm on T-Mobile, and was shopping for a replacement phone early this year (dropped the old one). I'm in a situation similar to yours, but for me it's the building I work in must be half Faraday-cage or something. So Band 12 (TMobile's 700mhz stuff) support was one of the must-haves on my list. Unfortunately back in February-ish very few phones supported it (like 3) the Nexus 6 being one of them (what I got).
I suspect that there's more options now, and would hope that it's showing up in non-flagship devices as well. Look for band 12 support, and realize that some phones have different versions and it's only present on some of them...
It does work though. I'm sitting in my office right now getting a half-strength signal where I used to get none, my phone lasts throughout the day... and every time I check at work it's connected to Band 12.
No, plenty of people believe in a supreme being without seeing evidence anywhere, much less everywhere.
You're describing gnostic theists and ignoring the whole set of agnostic theists. In my experience most of the religious people I've met that I consider "good" representatives of their faith fall into this latter camp while the gnostic theists are usually the fundamentalist nutjobs.
Personally the foundation of my faith is my agnosticism. Makes for quite the fun conversation with the fundies here in the south...
That said, I agree with you that gnostic theists are delusional and see evidence where there is none
Naw, what would instead happen is that you'd get something like the debt-ceiling. You'd get a "Bill to re-pass every pre-existing bill" and it'd be waved through until you got obstructionists in office and they let all laws expire for a week or two with partisan bickering/amendments.
Can't see this helping.
Might reread the OP; you're in violent agreement with him that the McDonald's case did have merit.
"Of course most of those lawsuits were thrown out at the early stages, or if not turned out to have merit (like the infamous McDonald's "hot coffee" incident)."
can be rephrased as
"Lawsuits not thrown out at the early stages turned out to have merit (like the infamous McDonald's "hot coffee" incident), however most were, of course, thrown out"
We don't know. That's one reason to do it.
What does it mean if the survey shows that for a group of 10 stars you have a 95% probability of at least 8 having at least one planet?
What does it mean if the survey shows this for 95% of the surveyed area except for a continuous section where there is only 1 planet per 100 stars?
What new knowledge would come from trying to understand what caused this? Perhaps we discover something new about fundamental physics?
The point is that we don't know what we don't know. This may be what discovers something previously completely unsuspected and with earth-shattering possibilities... or... we could just learn that there's a lot of planets out there and nothing more. But without doing it, there's no chance of discovering the former. Observing what's around us is how we learn more and start to question things we otherwise never would have known even existed to question.
It's not just general stuff about being able to understand general algorithms and such, it's far more than that. Assuming your school does a good job you'll be learning about how to architect and design... and a lot of that transcends domain boundaries.
The *same* exact skills that I use for architecting software I've used when our systems group didn't do their job and the software team had to take over and produce the needed artifacts (customer required). How you go about defining interfaces between hardware components isn't really any different than what you do to do so between software components.
In fact, I'm now working at developing a business process for a whole new line of business. There's hundreds of government documents regulating it. So... it's take all the same skills that are used in successful software development and apply to this instead. Setup an architecture framework for the process that meets your needs. In this case it's ensure that the regulations are traceable to the process we generate and that the process is created in such a way that certain structural requirements are met. Then it's decomposition to individual subsystems (individual processes) and flowing requirements down and then designing them. It's the same skills behind it all.
Yes, there's domain specific stuff that may not be apropo to what you're *currently* wanting to do. But there is (or should be!) a lot of domain-independent skills that are applicable to a whole wide range of design domains including web design. Learning this set of skills makes it very easy to transition jobs in the future if needs or wants change.
Set beneficiaries on your financial accounts (401k's, etc). I can envision all sorts of problems arising if the accounts are logged into and assets transfered out after your death.
For your laptop password, and the like, why not just keep a thumbdrive in a safe deposit box?
I'd suspect Firefox does something similar.
er, lack of sleep is speaking. Meant to say my Droid X has all that. Not sure where the heck Nexus 1 came from.
My Nexus 1 has all that, so I'd imagine that it'd be on a tablet as well.
It's a bargin priced performance video card not a bargin priced video card. Interestingly enough, "bargin performance" is the phrase used in the summary.
You're not going to get solid performance at a respectable resolution in modern video games for below $150-200 or so. If you spend below that you're either having to drastically cut resolution or you're cutting way back on the settings. The $200ish range of cards will let you run with most all of the pretty stuff turned on at approximately 1080p resolution with a solid framerate that's not being killed by stuttering or slowdowns. (i.e., acceptable mins)
The mid-range and high-end cards allow you to run at yet higher resolutions and/or with lots of AA. And yes, there are people that play modern FPSers at 2560x1600 with AA. I'm not one of them. I tend to go the budget performance card route and game at 1600x1200 with low or no AA but with high settings and a good frame rate. I'll likely need to upgrade come this fall though, and this card is definately on my radar.
