I was 5 watching the landing on TV and I remember being kind of annoyed that they preempted the cartoons that morning. I mean what's the big deal? The moon is RIGHT THERE (pointing up)!
So I read the book that guy wrote and while it was entertaining and probably accurate, it still came off as advocating giving billions to defense contractors for some unspecified fix. The forward by Newt Gingrich kinda tipped me off.
Just saw this today. Guess SourceForge has gone to the dark side. Sad Really.
DeviceGuru writes "Many of us have griped for years about Roku's retro one-dimensional user interface. Finally, in conjunction with the release of the new Roku 3 model, the Linux-based media streaming player is getting a two-dimensional facelift, making it quicker and easier to access favorite channels and find new ones. Current Roku users, who will now begin suffering from UI-envy, will be glad to learn that Roku plans to push out a firmware update next month to many earlier models, including the Roku LT, Roku HD (model 2500R), Roku 2 HD, Roku 2 XD, Roku 2 XS, and Roku Streaming Stick. A short demo of the new 2D Roku menu system is available in this YouTube video."
Why does everyone think I want to type to find something in the menu?
You are a chartered corporation in the US, so you do have some obligations to benefit the US for what you get for that. Oh wait, I guess not.
Yeah, I paid the bribe. Now I am certified!
Speaking as someone who was fired from every job I ever held (self employed now- 14 years), you need to think long term. You have developed relationships with your current employer and the people who work there and you never know where those people will turn up in the future. I have customers that I used to work for that I never thought I would see again in a million years because of how I left. But you do have to put yourself first. Removing 90 minutes of commute time a day and more money is a great step up. Just treat the current employer with respect, maybe really try to help with the transition.
Felt in here in Maine. My house was moving with the beat on the radio and I was like WTF??? Then I realized.
Mortgage backed securities were fine when the borrowers were vetted like they used to be. That's when they were rated AAA because everyone paid their mortgage for the most part. The problem was when that stopped and people on minimum wage were being given $350,000 loans as a common practice. This American Life/Planet Money have some great episodes about this.
Yeah, these are the same people that gave mortgage backed securities a AAA rating right up until it was blindingly obvious that they were wrong.
It had something to do with the fact there is no backup shuttle and space needed if an evacuation was necessary.
Presuming it was working the way you wanted before, log out, delete all your SlashDot cookies, then log back in. I have to do that every couple of months since the CSS makeover. Last time I was horrified to see Facebook "like" icons! *shudder*
If you are in Vista or 7, find the executable for the java control panel applet and right click to "Run As Administrator". Then what you change will stick.
