How about the other uses for fossil products: fertilizers, plastics etc. Will we also have alternatives for those by 2100?
A good reputation is hard to earn but easily lost.
I have been around here a long time too. Never seen an Apple product that seemed good enough to justify the high price. When I was given Apple kit at work for a development project I found the restrictions they imposed on what I could do with it - in order to preserve their control and profits - frustrating and damaged my productivity.
I found the skeuomorphic interface annoying and inferior to what I was used too with GNOME on Linux.
I don't hate Apple products - I just don't think they are any good.
Bicycles are very popular here in Japan. Most people have and use one some of the time.
Thanks but that didn't work. I don't live in the UK - maybe that makes a difference?
This is why BBC Radio 5 Live stopped working using the XiaaLive Android app? Is there a new URL I can use?
This is funny
No one I have met in real life posts on Google+.
They are still very popular in Japan. I get confirmation faxes from my bank every time I transfer money back to the UK. My wife's employer faxes her monthly work schedule to her.
Clippy is the only one still speaking to me.
I love socialism. Here in "socialist" Japan a great many people happily rely on (really great) public transport every day. I love it.
Even better is that my company pays for my monthly commuter pass. (That is standard practice here).
Oh, and left-wing bicycles are widely used here for shorter journeys.
What a utopia it would be if every human on the planet owned their car and there was not enough space to park them never mind drive them anywhere...
Although I can drive I have owned or strongly desired to own my own car. I would not like to give up owning my own bicycle, however...
I am happy with Gnome 3 (via CentOS 7) on my home laptop and work desktop machine. It looks great and I was able to configure it to my taste. CentOS 7 also comes with systemd. Never had to give it a second thought. For my needs this is a great desktop OS for home use and the development work I do in the office.
I think the low birth rate in Japan is due to the toxic effect of kombini lunches.
I work for a Japanese company but I am not pressured to work unnecessary overtime. If there was a serious drama happening I would stay late to fix it because I want the company to succeed. Otherwise I work the hours for which I am paid and feel pretty relaxed about that.
After reading recently about the overheads imposed by in-browser ad-blocking I switched back to Privoxy. The configuration is more complicated than AdBlock but after a couple of weeks I am getting results I am very happy with.
