Many style guides recommend using apostrophes in plurals of acronyms and initialisms. It makes them easier to read, as you can tell whether the s is part of the acronym.
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
We've improved Slashdot's video section; now you can view our video interviews, product close-ups and site visits with all the usual Slashdot options to comment, share, etc. No more walled garden! It's a work in progress -- we hope you'll check it out (Learn more about the recent updates).
I was going to post something similar. Just chop the binding off so you have a pile of flat pages that you can photograph. Then get the book rebound with coil/spiral binding.
If Linux does 80% of what I need, and Windows does 100%, then I might as well always be booted in to Windows.
Yeah, but Linux does that 80% stuff better.
What the hell? The correct form is "get past", like the OP said. The grads aren't getting passed to him, nor is anything passing him.
Mute and moot easily mistaken? They don't even sound the same unless you have an extreme case of yod-dropping. Confusing those two just sounds like stupidity to me.
Why not just have all the public domain books downloadable for free? Then it doesn't matter what the quality of the version you downloaded is. Just download another one. It doesn't make sense for anybody to be profiting from selling public domain books unless they're selling hard copy editions that take time and money to create, which doesn't apply here where it's just a 20 KB digital copy.
Or just make it clear to the buyer that the book is in the public domain and may be obtained for free elsewhere so they don't get ripped off thinking that the $10 they're spending is somehow going to the dead author's pocket.
That was completely off-topic, even in response to the off-topic grandparent, but I have to agree with you. I don't much like huge boobs, even if they're real.
But the majority of people just don't care about science. Not everybody wants to learn things, nor do they need to to have a happy life. We have this idea that people who don't understand science or math are somehow missing out on life and the world would be better if they were more enlightened, but in reality it just doesn't matter.
I'm actively seek knowledge and teach myself new things every day, but I'm not the norm. Sometimes I attempt to discuss with people topics that I find very interesting and am surprised that they just don't care. They just don't have that drive.
That said, there's a problem with people who don't understand science yet make decisions concerning it or spread false information.
Because FACEBOOK is an ACRONYM!
Friends And Colleagues Enlisting to Become Overlord's Orgasm Kittens?
Today, I had to Java.
This sounds familiar for some reason. Is there a meme behind this?
You're lucky. Our storm drains are long, horizontal curb inlets with no grating, so everybody dumps trash or litters in them. Evidently they believe that storm drains go to sewers and that sewers are where trash goes. Plus there's runoff from people's driveways/yards, like paint, fertilizer, oil, gasoline, etc.
My school taught typing with "Quick Ask Zoey What Stops X-rays", etc., which is clearly the best way to do it. With Dvorak, that becomes "'A;,OQ", and what the hell is that supposed to mean?
Interesting note: it also occurs the other way around with sonoluminescence. Intense sound through a liquid can create light.
No, the pill is actually white. It just turns your vision blue so it looks that way.~
Indeed, these graphs are bullshit. You can't expect to get an accurate tally of load times among browsers when loading websites like YouTube, Lifehacker, and Gizmodo. You can visit YouTube one minute and it'll load lightning fast, but then two minutes later it'll load slow as fuck.
If they're gonna do tests like that, they need to run the websites locally. Otherwise, they're conflating network speeds (which vary at any given moment) and rendering speed.
