And there is one of the big problems with the CRTC allowing this. So sure, wholesalers that don't even use Bell's internet pipe, but provide their own, must play by the rules, but Bell can offer their retail customers a deal for $5.

Personally I'd like to see last mile run as a utility, then you find your own ISP.

CFL only lighting ignores certain negative factors, like three year olds obsessed with light switches....install $5 light bulb that's supposed to last a bazillion hours...leave the room. click click click click click click click click click click click click click click click click click click click poof....install $5 light bulb that's supposed to last a bazillion hours...leave the room. click click click click click click click click click click click click click click click click click click click poof

I don't think I'm saving money or carbon emissions this way.

And if you take a break from bending over to enjoy your own farts you'll realize that CFL's are in fact quite harsh at times and not nearly as pleasant as the evil incandecsent bulbs.

One positive, though I miss visiting regular servers, is that you don't log into some new server only to find all these arbitrary limitations on what equipment you can use. (No martyrdom here pal, oh and no "noob tube", oh and if you kill us with anything else we'll ban that too...)

Jetman Attempts Intercontinental Flight 140 140

Last year we ran the story of Yves Rossy and his DIY jetwings. Yves spent $190,000 and countless hours building a set of jet-powered wings which he used to cross the English Channel. Rossy's next goal is to cross the Strait of Gibraltar, from Tangier in Morocco and Tarifa on the southwestern tip of Spain. From the article: "Using a four-cylinder jet pack and carbon fibre wings spanning over 8ft, he will jump out of a plane at 6,500 ft and cruise at 130 mph until he reaches the Spanish coast, when he will parachute to earth." Update 18:57 GMT: mytrip writes: "Yves Rossy took off from Tangiers but five minutes into an expected 15-minute flight he was obliged to ditch into the wind-swept waters."

When someone says "I want a programming language in which I need only say what I wish done," give him a lollipop.
