It worked for me in 1996. There was no Google for you to google back then. But around 98, I switched Altavista, that was the new hotness. It was kind of like a proto-google.
i used it all the time. It used to have a human-submitted and maintained tree directory of the internet.
Think about that for a second.
So if I wanted to find a good website about DOS games, instead of googling for "DOS Games", I would go to Yahoo and select a top category. It might be "Entertainment".
And find subcategories, such as Games -> Computer Games -> Legacy Games -> DOS
And look through the listings.
not having heard of it, and thus never having any thoughts about it, and since you say it's NOT what I think it is (nothing), I guess Dart *is* something!

Astronauts will be eating a lot of nachos on Mars.
You heard it here first.
and he STILL has enough to be the richest?
Maybe he should give away some more.
is it a coincidence that 3.0 is when they started versioning up like crazy every two weeks? I think not!
I'm not sure about the new ipads, but an iPad 2 cannot be charged via PC USB at all. Not enough voltage. It will tell you so when you plug it in. Only way to charge it is to plug it into the wall.
But aside from that, charging iPhones and iPods via PC USB is also somewhat slower than plugging it into a wall, and this is a plus if you're concerned about battery longevity (not to be confused with battery life). Rapid charging and discharging degrades a battery much faster than slow charging/discharging.
Another big boost to battery longevity is not letting the battery discharge all the way to 0%, and not charging it fully to 100%... keep it in the middle. Toyota Prius does this, it keeps the battery charge between 40% and 50% constantly. That's how the battery on a Prius goes for decades with little degradation. People who charge their phone to 100% overnight and use it until it shuts down by itself due to low battery, they will notice significant battery degradation after only a few months.
it might be possible to use this sound locating algorithm in an electronic package to aid soldiers in battle.
Imagine if every time a sound of gunfire is heard, it pinpoints the location and displays it on a map, like a radar. You can even integrate it with an existing friend-or-foe system that tracks all friendlies via GPS, so that friendly soldiers are displayed in green and enemy gunfire is painted in red.
It would work fairly well and help soldiers become more effective. At least until the enemy starts using suppressors or Assassin Pro perk.
Pilot is out of the question for pretty much everyone here, they're only taking hotshot astronauts with 8,000 hours in combat jets and generally possessing large amounts of the Right Stuff.
But if you're a moderately intelligent young female with nice legs and a pleasant smile, you have a chance as a spaceship stewardess!
The only time that is not true is when enough people oppose the money.
Or when you have an honest man for a president who truly does place the public good above his own greed. The only two examples I can think of offhand are George Washington and Teddy Roosevelt.
Obama is just as corrupt as Bush, he is a team player.

When Spaceship One blasted off to win the X-Prize. I remember being very excited. I watched the launch and read as many articles about it as I could.
That was 10 years ago. Now we have SpaceX and Orbital Sciences making orbit. Tremendous new things seem possible now with Falcon Heavy and Grasshopper reusable stage coming in the pipeline. SpaceShipTwo? A bigger version of SpaceShipOne that carries passengers, but still only suborbital with no further prospects. Where is the Tier Two orbital program that Rutan hinted at? Why did it take so long to get SS2 off the ground? Did Scaled get lost and rudderless with Burt retiring? Did they lack funding? What's the deal?
work is not virtuous.
I am no philosopher wise man (and judging by your post neither are you) but I have experienced periods in my work where I sat around doing nothing, just surfing the internet. I have also done extremely useful work writing code that went into production. Even though I made the exact same money "working" exactly same hours, I can tell you that my mood and mental health during the two periods were drastically different, like night and day.
There is something to be said about meaningful work. The writers of old knew more than you think.
I just touched my 27 inch LCD monitor and it was a bad experience. The screen looked like it deformed and pushing liquid to the side. Plus it left a greasy fingerprint. I wouldn't buy this thing for $5 or 5 cents.
