Eyewitnesses reported that during Monday night’s 9:15pm Real3D screening of Gravity, a lone man (later identified as retired ISS Commander Chris Hadfield) began muttering under his breath and chuckling to himself. By the 30-minute mark, Hadfield reportedly made numerous rude comments such as, “Nice Soyuz procedure, Hollywood!” and “Oh yeah, because that’s what hypoxia as caused by rapid cabin decompression looks like you idiots!.”
Was there ever an updated/modernized version of Rocky's Boots? I remember that one VERY well as being something that got me into logic, circuits, and programming all in one place. Yes, I'm showing my age. Whippersnappers.

Nope, you misunderstand. I got them to issue one of the free certs for one of my domains (I use Gandi for all of my registrations), and it works perfectly with all major browsers out of the box.
All you have to do is add Gandi's intermediate certificate (the cert that links their signature on your free cert to the base CA cert that's in everybody's browser), but you do that on your server (web/mail/whatever) and offer it up as part of the SSL negotiation. It works perfectly, and transparently. It is definitely NOT like the hassle of a self-signed certificate, where you DO have to either add the "security exception" to every client's browser, or get them to install your cert into their browser ahead of time.
"At this time, the Linux OS is not supported for Kindle applications or Kindle content. The reason it is unavailable is because we haven't gotten the rights from Linux to do so, we have to work with them in order to get the program up and running, and so far they haven't allowed us to do so. We are always working hard to expand our reading options, and appreciate your feedback."
Apparently Amazon is incapable of obtaining the rights from Linux to make an application? I'm calling bullshit on this, what do you think?"
Drying a load of laundry in an electric dryer.
Scary, huh? You really don't have any idea what sucks power in your home until you get a good way to visualize it.
Oh, and that was more like 2300 on 12/6 - more recent data is on the right.
These sort of usage meters are *great*. I got one of these: http://www.egauge.net/
Pricier, sure. But mine includes up to 12 customizable channels of measurement and a 20+ year non-volatile memory for historical data.
It also runs Linux (bonus points around here, right?) and has this spiffy web interface where you can watch me go broke in real time because I'm running a server/storage farm in my basement: http://egauge614.d.egauge.net/
I'm still surprised the narcs haven't busted down my door because they THINK I have a grow op.

People who care about their data and their business know what they mean.
Although, at my particular shop, we use the term "BC" instead of "HA".
BC = Business Continuance (HA = High Availability)
DR = Disaster Recovery
BC = "Looks like we just lost a drive in the array. Better replace that right away." or "Oops, broke one of the multiple fibers to the SAN. Where's the spare again?"
BC also applies to our load-balanced clusters of web servers and application servers that allow for the offlining or loss of entire machines without losing functionality. You need more than your data existing on media to Continue Business - you and your customers need to be able to GET to it somehow.
DR = Your building just burned to the ground, taking every single piece of furniture, equipment, paper, and magnetic media inside along with it. Now what?
Please note that the coolest, slickest, snapshotted NAS with terabytes and terabytes of awesome cheap SATA storage in it is worth exactly JACK in this scenario if it's in the same building as the source material. Offsite backups are not optional, and offsite storage of hard drives isn't exactly the easiest thing to do.
