so who are you paying to pick what's acceptable in this modern world?
and then. filter it.
do you filter on keyword?
or not, what else?
Wait, can anyone tell me WHY anyone would want to get new features and upgrade word processing software?
What possible new features could there be to make it worth paying for software on a monthly basis, unless its in its current form broken or unusuable?
If its broken and unusable, it should be fixed for free, since you have already paid for it once. I cant think for the life of me what i would need a new version of office for.
Hell I was still using office 2003 until 3 years ago.
The only reason to upgrade would be due to planned obsolescence..
Sorry. Dunno what i was thinking.
This is a company that replaces a start menu with something that's not a start menu because.. well i dunno honestly.
Did ANYONE say "I wish the start menu was the size of my entire screen, and as a bonus, open all of my apps in huge fonts and large formats for a touch screen and thus not actually be a start menu at all."
I have been using windows since 3.11.
I remember in the days when you could change your background colour in an explorer window. Try doing that now.
It seems microsoft has been innovating by making the software harder to customize to your needs, harder to use, and thus..
oh of course.
I keep getting away from myself here.
Microsoft needs to listen to its customers for once. I own a small business, and to me, customers are PURE GOLD.
I think his most commonly repeated word is "peculiarly" and "curiously"
Yea i know. I treat it as a bit less serious, light reading.
Stephen Donaldson is pretty well the direct opposite, and of course the late Robert Jordan.
A bit basic by modern standards, but any of David Eddings writings are classic reading.
Modern sci-fi standards, i would recommend Neal Asher.
No, the anode matrix has the physical dimensions designed to store the lithium at its maximum size.
This limitation of the anode matrix is why its incredibly dangerous to overcharge a lithium based battery, as once the anode matrix is full of lithium, it has nowhere else to go, hence.. boom.
This technology is special in that its allowing a much greater growth in the size of the stored particles, while still maintaining electrical contact during discharge, and allowing the full particle size when charging. The anode matrix itself is just designed to hold the lithium compounts while maintaining electrical contact, and yet stopping the anode and cathode from shorting together which once again ends in boom.
Thats the issue with lithium technology, charge too fast, boom, discharge too fast, boom, charge to long, boom.
Pretty well do exactly what it says it can do, otherwise, boom.
a spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down

Hate to be that guy, but reversing the wiring on a pool electrolysis cell does NOTHING apart from clean the carbon grids.
Yes, pool stores are all in on the "you need a new grid" or charging you lots of dollars to clean it when deposits build up on it.
Just reverse the polarity. Hell, some controllers even use a special expensive super amazing automatic clean mode which does....... you guessed it, reverses the voltage every now and then.
This is salt water pools by the way. There is nothing else on any other kind of pool to rewire backwards.
Hooking up ac to the grid directly will just explode it, and you, on the spot.
Oh i find it intrinsically interesting.
I was just wondering if it had any real world implications, which as i have read other people's comments, was noted as to the accuracy of dating methods.
Thats all. Science IS cool, i just wanted to know if this actually had any significance, or just one of those cool but non significant things science brings around ya know.
I hate to be THAT person, but what does this mean for us normal humans? Does it mean anything at all?
