Only problem is that Semitic people include pretty much all of the people in the middle-east, most of whom are not jews. The word "antisemite" however, is used against jews only, even though not all jews are "semites"(like those who speak Yiddish). Since this article uses "anti-Semitic", I assume that they have censored bigotry against all sides in this conflict(except anti-European and anti-American).

youre correct, the tabs themselves didnt appear until version 4 which was the first version i started to use regularly. They did however have "MDI" support before, so you could have more windows inside the main window. Think they had that from version 2 and onwards.

Opera has had "tabs" since the start i think(at least multi-window in same instance). First version i tried was 3.65 in '98 or something. It was fast compared to Netscape and IE at the time, but js and plugins mostly didnt work. I bought version 5 and 6, and presto came in version 7 and it was all freeware from then on. Stopped using Opera last year, and migrated to Firefox. With firegestures add-on its pretty close to the core opera functionality. The laughable attitude some opera devs showed in that comment will probably keep me from ever going back to Opera even if they would make a linux version again.

The lead in this project - Terje Berntsen, says that the variation from '90s and in the '00s could be explained by natural variations. In the 00' the natural variations is canceling out the rise in CO_2 emissions, and in the '90s it was amplifying it. I still hope that the worst case scenario(a 4 degree rise) will be the "working scenario" for the solutions that will be used.

KSat(Kongsberg Satellite Services AS) are the ones maintaining communication with the satellites from Svalbard. The manager there said that they haven't been contacted by NASA about the issue, and they have also not found any evidence that that they have been hacked.

eclipse is SWT/JFACE, not AWT/SWING. Doesnt use 500 megs on my system...around 320(eclipse classic 3.7). SWT is also very fast GUI wise compared to swing, as it uses JNI do display native GUI elements. Who cares about ram usage on clients these days anyway...its cheap. Most systems have 4GB+ RAM now anyway. Vuze(former azureus) and lotus notes are also using SWT for GUI.

It's time to boot, do your boot ROMs know where your disk controllers are?
