While Westphalia is part of the ancient settlement area of the historical Saxons, contemporary Saxony has nothing to do with it. Actually, the title of Archduke of Saxony was handed to the Duke of Meissen, when the original Saxon line of Achedukes died out in the 15th century, carring the name Saxony from today's Westphalia and Lower Saxony to Meissen and Dresden.

So my middle post doesn't matter. I don't have a choice of providers, I just have a choice of how I get the internet. Sat, DSL or Cable.

Hm. So you were saying, that you don't have the choice of fast food chains, because Domino's only serves pizza, while McDonald's only serves burgers?

An organism benefits from plasticity in changing or not optimal environments. About every organism shows signs of a certain plasticity. It doesn't just thrive under optimal conditions, but it can also exist in not so advanturous environments, but it doesn't grow to the same size, reaches the same age or produced the same amount of offspring. Nevertheless, thanks to plasticity, it can overcome the situation.

I think you didn't get the parent. Before the disaster, you screen the people who will be affected by it and designate the survivors. Those people get tags to be easily spotted and identified. Thus you can rescue the survivors easily and don't need to waste time on people not deemed worthy to be alive.

Even if I get spam that claims to be from my bank, I can see it being spam because I got similar spam allegedly from other banks I never did business with. The same with the two messages of unclear status, I seem to have with so many sites, that the one that claimed to have sent by a site I actually have an account with was easily spotted.

Overdrawn? But I still have checks left!
