I've been using Unity for a few years and I like it. Typically I might have several browser windows, several terminals, and other windows like WireShark open. In the older UI these would have all been accessible from the bottom bar, and there might be twenty or so tabs there. Unity changes it around so you go to the side (a good place to put things on a 16:9 monitor) and select the browser, terminal, or another icon. With the muscle memory in place it has worked very well. Alt-tab also works as you might expect. I also have Mac laptops, and it's not especially annoying to go from one UI to the other.
The 5280' mark is on the steps of the state capitol
Not just one... three!
"Additionally, the official elevation of Denver is measured outside the west entrance to the building, where the fifteenth step is engraved with the words "One Mile Above Sea Level." From this step, at 5,280 feet (1,609 m), the sun can be seen setting behind the Rocky Mountains. A second mile high marker was set in the 18th step in 1969 when Colorado State University students resurveyed the elevation. In 2003, a more accurate measurement was made with modern means, and the 13th step was identified as being one mile (1.6 km) high, where a 3rd marker was installed."

Didn't someone do the Kessel Run in 1.2 quintillion feet?
I wonder how those elderly will feel as their Social Security and Medicare programs are stripped clean in order to pay for that police state they champion so much...
So the generation that votes wants to maintain Social Security and Medicare, even if it plunges future citizens into debt, and the generation that doesn't vote wants a different policy on Snowden. Which generation do you think politicians would listen to most?
Looks like it's been aborted for today due to the weather. The anvil cloud rule was violated. Next try is 4.10pm EDT tomorrow.
Quick question. There are four towers, each with a cylinder on top. Around the cylinder there is some kind of spiral between the bottom and top. What are these cylinders called and what do they do?
That link doesn't seem to work for me.
Mignon Fogarty ("Grammar Girl") is in favor of moving to singular "they", and it is perfectly acceptable in British English.
How about if Comcast came out and shot the guy?
We called to shoot you but you were out. Please call 1-800-XFINISHYOU to reschedule.
The Assyrian came down like the wolf on the fold,
And his cohorts were gleaming in purple and gold;
And the sheen of their spears was like stars on the sea,
When the blue wave rolls nightly on deep Galilee.
We've had lots of cats that have wandered off and... but that was the thing about the name, everybody congratulated us on the name Beagle 2 as inspirational, until after it didn't call in and we had all manner of e-mails, texts, telephone calls, letters saying didn't you realise that Beagles are the worst dogs you could possibly have to let off the leash - they run off, they chase something, they don't come back when they're called, they only come home when they're hungry and they show no sign of remorse.
High-resolution images taken from orbit have identified its landing location, and it looks to be in one piece.
The UK-led probe tried to make a soft touchdown on the dusty world on Christmas Day, 2003, using parachutes and airbags — but no radio contact was ever made with the probe.
Many scientists assumed it had been destroyed in a high-velocity impact.

Q&A had an interesting interview about "The Birth of a Nation" recently, and there are a lot of good in-depth interviews about recent books. Probably not "based on comics" though...
Hurrah pour Robur-le-Conquérant ! s’écria une voix ironique.
