Fully agree with point 12!
You shouldn't try to tell her what she has to do - you can't predict what she will face anyway.
Tell her instead what she will likely want to hear from you, that nobody else could tell her: about you, your life, your past, your setbacks, your delights, your thoughts, your fears - anything!

As more than 90% of all e-mails are spam-mails, will the NSA & Co. also collect all of that trash? Or have they good filters at hand to avoid filling their storage capacities with junk? What filters are they employing? If their filters are good, and the monitor *all* national and/or worldwide traffic, they could do us all a big favour and filter out that junk! Or even better: identify and eliminate the sources of this nuisance. Thanks in advance!

Apache isn't below 50%. What counts, are "active sites", not parked domains or similar (see Netcraft). Numbers for active sites fluctuate much less and show us a more realistic picture. Apache is still at 53,62%.

And no, IIS is not the winner, but a distant second with only 11,78% market share. Considering, IIS had once 38% (october 2007), IIS is the biggest looser so far.
