I've lived in a couple neighbourhoods with these in them. I've never seen the box be more than a block away.
If someone is unable to travel in some form (walk, scooter, wheelchair, etc) a few houses down, then its very likely you have some form of assistance to help with other daily tasks. This will just be another task for those assistants to do a few times a week (at most).
All new neighbourhoods in the last probably 10 years (or more) have had these community mailboxes. This will just be phasing it in to older neighbourhoods. I've been living with them for about 6 or 7 years now and really have no complaints about them.
No but you don't issue him a warning either... simply because there are much more potentially serious consequences to the action.
Are the only damages (or potential damages) the $0.05 in electricity?
What if that particular circuit was being used for other things, like running a pump to deal with some flooding, and plugging in the car was enough to blow the braker?
There really aren't.
If the person has a living will, you follow that.
If the person does not, and there is a living relative with PoA, that person can make the decision.
If there's no will and no person with PoA, then you provide medical care as we do today.
I can see his point of view.
I'm for assisted suicide, but I'd like to think if I didn't like the idea for myself or my family, I wouldn't try to prevent you from doing it. Blocking other people from having this option is, indirectly, putting people in these 'torturous' positions.
I can't see how it won't. You'll grind for rep and some sort of currency (valor points or what have you) to get better gear to get into end game raids, to farm gear.
It's lost it's appeal for me and I really doubt I'll be back.
I picked up a Pebble and it does most of what I was hoping it will do, and potentially will do it all with some firmware (or other) updates.
First, I'm on call a lot, generally via email. So having a watch on my wrist vibrate a little as opposed to a phone in my pocket buzz or make a sound is more convenient, and easier to notice (most of the time). It's nice that I can be in a meeting, at a movie, at the doctor's office, have my phone on silent or vibrate, and not worry about it bother other people. Since my response time for on call is usually an hour, a quick glance at my watch is all that is required at the moment the email comes in, at which point I can wrap up the business at hand, or if it's ongoing, I can excuse myself when it's appropriate.
The only thing I wish, was that there was an option to continue vibrating (in some pattern) until I acknowledge the alert. This way, when I'm on call overnight, I can be notified of an email without the sound having to wake my as well as me.
Next, I run. The watch lets me interface with Runkeeper by giving me my current pace, distance and time with a quick glance at my watch, it also lets me control the music on my phone if I happen to be listening to music while running. If I have Runkeeper reading out my pace and other info occasionally, I find it distracting, and I'd rather know those things when I want to, rather that any specific interval. Using my watch is much better than trying to do those things on my phone while running, especially since for security purposes, I need to have my phone lock when not being used.
We have some new laws regarding personal communication devices and driving. Now, I don't text or play with my phone while driving, but having the text show up on my watch can, at a glance, let me know if it's something I want to deal with relatively soon, or if it's something that can wait until it's convenient. I won't get a ticket for glancing at my watch, but I could for trying to view the same message on my phone.
So, yes, I find my watch useful for my set of circumstances.
Because the Troll is missing the entire point of the story.
If Intel, Nvidia and AMD start releasing they're top tier drivers for Linux, it makes Linux as a desktop more viable for more people. That's what Torvalds is saying.
Not everyone is going to go and replace their Windows desktop with a Linux right away, but when it's time to buy their next PC, and they can get one for $100 cheaper (same specs) that will play their games, run their office suite, etc. That's where Linux can take a bigger bite out of the home desktop market.
For myself, probably twice a year. An annual physical and it seems like about once a year for something else.
If you count the wife and kids, it's probably more like 10-15. Kids have some pretty serious medical issues so we're regularly seeing various specialists.
Install the games ahead of time. When we organized LAN parties, we'd put together a list of games we'd be playing, and what patch level was to be expected. We usually had an internet line there we'd share out, but it was rarely a fast line, and nobody expected to be able to download a full game to play. It just requires some preparation ahead of time.
Sure, but there are plenty of professional athletes that compete without the help of drugs. Shouldn't they have more respect that the ones who cheat (and by cheat I mean breaking the rules that are in place).
As opposed to... just about every profession out there?
Sure some, are less obvious, but don't we reward singers, writers, artists, etc. based on their talent (along with other factors as well).
Yes, it's terrible to think that professional sports players should actually be rewarded for training and talent rather than drugs.
