If they were terrorists, the TSA probably should have done something like stopped them from getting on the airplane and calling law enforcement. It's somewhat ridiculous to think that there are potential terrorists getting on planes and all we're doing about them is throwing their bombs in the trash before the board.

I'm more concerned about the "papers" that contain gibberish nonsense than one where the author isn't correct. Those are both names that could easily exist, but even if they didn't, it shouldn't be a problem to publish an article by Anonymous as long as it's peer-reviewed and contains good material.

Looks like it would be about $9.50 on average in CA. However this is also assuming the router is being used a max power 24/7 when it's sharing and would be completely idle 24/7 if it wasn't. It's more likely people would be using their own router so it wouldn't be idle in which case it would use a negligible amount for sharing.

I end up using my email that way. Emails about stuff I haven't dealt with stay in the inbox (though only one for each thing) and when the task is done I archive it. I don't create emails for that purpose, it's more like an email with tickets to a show or someone suggesting a feature for a program I'm working on or a credit card statement.
