When I first registered online with a credit card company in the 90's, they limited me to 4 characters. I think they were still in a PIN mindset. That got fixed eventually, but not for years.
It varies. One grandmother is 96, and only in the last couple of years has she had what I'd call any serious reduction in quality of life. Before that she lived on her own capably and happily. At 88 she was still doing great.
On the other side, my grandparents are 88 and 92. They played tennis well into their 70's, and at least as of 5 years ago neither of them took any prescription medication, not sure about now.
They may yet have some undignified years ahead of them, but all of that is happening *after* age 88. Setting the bar at 68 is seriously low.
Well played, Anonymous Coward.
Now institutions have an incentive to be very selective about the students they choose, and the amount of funding they give to various majors. I'm guessing that poetry majors will get a lot less money per student than say CS or mechanical engineering.
Also, instead of taking the SAT for admissions, they'll take the $AT (money accumulation test) to see what kind of earnings potential they can demonstrate.
I've been playing Baseball Stars on NES. Something about baseball being around the corner makes me want to build a team and hit a few home runs. Also it's fast and simple and easy to play around the schedule of a toddler who takes a few tries to go to sleep.
we are can not spell
Nor sentence put together can we.
That looks correct to me. "Death threat" is a phrase. It doesn't get a gratuitous hyphen stuck inside it just because there's one put at the end. Properly you'd use a different length of dash here to indicate that it's a whole phrase being hyphenated rather than just the last word, but 1) most non-copy editors don't know that, and 2) dashes on the internet tend to be more pain to figure out than they're worth.
You don't think technology's pace has played a part in this? There's not only more tech and more complicated tech, so that it's hard for one person to know it all, particularly while also learning how to manage people, but it's also changing such that even if you were pretty technically sharp early in your career, by the time you've had a chance to rise to manager you're completely out of date, or quickly get there. I wonder if the environment is stacked against managers learning to be both good leaders and also keep up with tech in a way that used to be less true?
Or they give it "sort of" credit because it starts with planets and stars, even if they don't take the rest of it seriously.
They ask a question that has an objective true or false value.
Well let's see. Astrology wouldn't exist without knowledge of planets and constellations and their location in the sky. That is objectively scientific, right?
Well, it's a confusing market right at the moment. I used to run a web-based computer game, and out of uneasiness with the term "buy" for digital goods I asked players to "donate" in return for which they'd get a thank-you gift. I treated every transaction as a purchase, but I didn't want to imply they had ownership of the digital goods. One of the merchants I used (Amazon) had a serious problem with this wording because they were convinced I was running an unregistered charity, based entirely on the word donate. They disabled my account and even after multiple emails wouldn't accept my explanation. They weren't a significant part of my sales so I let it go, but if they'd been more important to my business model I definitely would have been stuck with using the words "buy" for things my players definitely didn't properly own.
I can't get it over the air. I'm sure I'm not the only one.
I can't. I'm only 5 miles outside a town of 20,000, but there's a mountain in the way. Somehow Fox and CBS come through, but no NBC.
Well, if you don't want to completely kill the sense of this being a discussion site, there really needs to be a way to:
1) see if anyone has responded to your past comments
2) see if your comments have been moderated
Both of these things are easily accomplished in Classic, but I couldn't figure it out in Beta. Maybe I just overlooked the display somewhere, but assuming I didn't, will those things be worked in before launch?
