If they have 6000 solar panel connections at $5 per month: 10 1/3 years to repay $3.7 M. (Or with 60,000 solar connections, just over 1 year.) Since the utilities have to look decades into the future in order to make sure they can be profitable then too, its a small price to pay.
Plus, who's to say it stays at $5/mo.
It's not so much that this is a slow news days, but that with the new iPhone announcement in less than two weeks, the Mac Fanbois (and Fangirls) are waiting to see how much they are going to have to spend on the new latest greatest iDevice (now with cheese grating apps). This announcement means that they can save 200 - 300 out of the thousand they could spend on the new device, new cases, new screen protectors, all the other new accessories, carrier ETF, new apps, etc.
Not if you use a properly coded laser.
Yeah, but I'm sure that for everything up until the trial, being a lawyer would provide several advantages, especially being one of the US's foremost lawyers in the field of "defense against unfair overreach by incredibly wealthy/powerful entity".
You're forgetting that Landell Hobbs admitted that heavy users had no effect on TWC's network and profits.
Don't drink the kool-aid.
yeah, what about those of us who
a) don't play WoW;
b) have a girlfriend;
c) don't live in our parents' basement;
d) take regular showers;
e) less than 40% of our body weight is excess Cheetos and Jolt;
f) can actually have "normal conversations" with non-techies.
g) et cetera . . . . .
Is this achievement system designed to make us revert to wearing pocket protectors?
See the problem here is that you were doing this near Cincinnati OH. If you had been doing this at Burning Man, everyone for three miles would have come running, some of them already naked.
Because those of us who have been following along with the RIAA and MPAA and Pirate Bay and Microsoft and Psystar and the EFF and Apple and AT&T and Verizon and Comcast and every other technologically relevant entity who can hire a lawyer and a PR person has now given us a basic understanding of the way these cases work.
Ray may have already helped me skip the first year of law school, just because of the sheer volume of information he has provided to the
P.S. I apologize for feeding the A.C., but I've got Karma to burn.
They could have been caught much sooner if the machines had been using a paper trail. My local machines print out each selection as it is made. Then if at the ballot review screen I change a vote, then it prints that on the paper trail. So if even 10% of the paper trails from a single precinct shows significant and consistent changes at the review screen, that's a huge red flag!
If the machine had a paper trail, the 2002 election could have been the only one that was affected. And the 2004 and 2006 elections would have been unaffected. As it is, it took over three election cycles to catch these guys, ***BECAUSE THERE WAS NO PAPER TRAIL***.
As for the question of how did they catch these guys, there are any number of methods, including, the wrong person talking; or an actually smart and observant voter who was waiting in line and noticed that they were given incorrect instructions and the poll workers seemed to be spending a lot of time in the booths after each voter; or a candidate being asked for bribe money; or a poll worker being approached to join the scam; etc, etc, etc, ad nauseam . . .
So the people who say that the voting machines will always reflect the will of the voter are idiots. I don't think that the machines need to be fully open source, but they need to be certifiably as secure as possible and part of that includes independent penetration testing and a paper trail ***AND PAPER TRAILS SHOULD BE REQUIRED BY FEDERAL LAW***
Right, because this wouldn't confuse the poor bastards in KY who couldn't even follow the directions on the screen after they pushed the "Vote" button that clearly told them that they had to push the "Cast Ballot" button too.
I'm fine with not having a receipt (except for my collection of "I voted" stickers) , but my polling place has ES&S machines with the additional paper trail module, and yes, I do check the paper trail after each selection.
Actually, it clearly says that WW and CW were the Democrat and Republican election officials for a certain precinct. Meaning that both Democrats and Republicans were in on it.
Go look at the Interwebs and see the Bomb Shelter BUS STOPS they have in areas bordering Gaza and the West Bank. It's not just the rockets, its the fact that Isralis are living in a land where when they hear the rocket warning alarms, they have mere seconds to be inside the nearest bomb shelter. These people are as trained in what to do when a rocket is incoming as members of the US Military and they have daily "drills".
God is real, unless declared integer.
