When someone builds a space station that stays in orbit out of a Pringles can and duct tape.. I'll be impressed.
That would either be one hell of a pringles can, or you'd be recruited some mighty small people to populate the space station.
Or a hell of a lot of duct tape!
Archie: How very interesting. You're a true vulgarian, aren't you?
Otto: You're the vulgarian, you fuck.
Canada's installed electrical generating capacity in 1994 was 114 gigawatts (GW = 109 watts): 56% derived from HYDROELECTRICITY, 18% from coal, 14% from nuclear power, 7% from oil, 4% from natural gas and 1% from other sources. Installed capacity is the amount of power that could be generated at a given instant if all power plants were working simultaneously at full capacity.

The big problem for us is the cold weather sucking the life out of the batteries.
The scroll ball is awesome, though!
I agree. I install cable and internet for our local telco, and it almost never works to use existing cable to pull new stuff through the walls. If you're very lucky and the initial install wasn't done by an overzealous electrician with an unnatural love of his staple gun, you might get away with it. Also, if you have a basement with a drywalled ceiling, you can just about forget about it. Why would anyone permanently cover up the only access to most of the utilities in their home?
CONTINUING SPOILER ALERT!
If the Romulans hadn't been blown up at the end, they might have fallen through the singularity and gone on to destroy Vulcan again (in yet another dimension).
There's no pulling the wool over your eyes!
My mighty mouse did the same thing with the scroll button not working properly. It's probably just because some dirt got in behind the ball. Try holding the mouse upside down and spin the ball around like crazy for a bit. That should make any debris fall out and restore functionality.
I live in Canada, and have both a Canadian and US iTunes account. I just downloaded something from the US iTunes store and had to agree to the new terms of service. The download worked fine.
As far as I can tell, the terms of service (for the US store, anyway) no longer allow you to use a credit card from a foreign bank. You can still make purchases if you use pre-paid iTunes cards, as long as those cards were purchased in the US.
