Not where I live in Alberta. Anything North of Calgary doesn't get Chinooks all the often and we are stuck in the deep freeze. We just don't whine about it like the Easterners. Yesterday morning it was -34c with a wind chill of -45c. We decided it would be better to walk to the grocery store instead of driving as the car was just to frozen over. This morning we remembered to plug it in and it's no where near as cold, only -24c not sure of the wind chill. Still walked to work though.
and I was still replaced.
Might be a first world problem but that doesn't make any less real.
It will never change unless someone starts the conversation.
So many mags have gone paperless now days. All of my current subs are also pushing their paperless offerings for cheaper rates. I think the problem they all have is that most people still don't like reading mags/newspapers on a screen (of any sort). Yes having a tablet with tons of content is nice but they haven't really changed the format to make it readable on them. There is no smart way to have a 10" tablet display a page one way and a 7" another and a 4.5" phone another. They need to make it readable on any device. And before you say it PDF is not the way to go. Usually the text is way to small and zooming/pan/scan is way to annoying unless you have a 10" table.
I currently subscribe to QST (it comes with membership), TCA (membership), CQ, Pop Comm, Shortwave Listener (do you see a trend here). I used to get PC Mag but since they don't have paper any more... Linux Journal... My wife has a couple also. The only problem I have with all of them is the number of ads but I guess they have to pay the bill some way. So yes we still read many magazines. The tech and radio mags are always good for how-to's and such and for the most part are good to have as reference for many years. Just need a better way of indexing the articles.
That's all I can say. The powerful just want more power and they will get it no matter what the common people say or do. It's just that simple.
Sorry America your screwed. But the rest of the world isn't that far behind so don't sweat it to much.
Living the dream...
While I do tend to agree with you, I think we all need to remember to just be a bit more civil to each other. This whole thing would have been way more productive if the answer was just given and possibly a link to the page in the docs/manual/wiki. I don't mind if this is marked as flame bait or troll but just because we're on the internet and can post anonymously does it make it okay to call people names. Just answer the question and move on. If you don't know the answer read it so you know and move on. If you just don't care then keep your comments to your self. Remember what Mom used to say:
"If you can't say something nice. Don't say anything at all."
I'm ready to be flogged now. BTW I won't come back to read them any way so save your fingers.
It's easy. You do what a professor of mine did.
"Dude... Your code is horrible. Yes it works but nobody know how the fsck it works. Here's a book on writing effective comments and coding conventions (sorry can't remember the name of the book)."
Now I know your not in a school environment but as his boss you need to explain to him that the code has to be readable by others. This is his first verbal warning. Give him a book on writing readable code and comments. Give him a couple of months to clean up his current code. If nothing happens then give him his first written warning. If nothing happens then the second written warning. Finally if he's still hasn't quit and still hasn't cleaned up his act give him his walking papers. Where I am you just need to give 1 verbal and two written warnings and show how you tried to help get the employee on track then you can fire them and not have to pay severance.
Yes sorry I posted before having my first coffee of the day. I said oscillator but really it would be the low/high pass filters that keep everything that shouldn't be transmitted away from the antenna. Thanks for the correction.
If the keyless entry is in the 314mhz (thrid harmonic) range then it could possibly be interference. A poorly controlled oscillator can cause this.
What upsets most people (in the western free mark world) isn't that they make a profit. It's that the companies don't reinvest some of that profit in actually increasing capacity. They (the companies) just complain about to much traffic and crank on the rates again. That and there is a complete lack of competition and almost zero ability for a new entry in the market. This makes it at best an oligopoly and at worst a monopoly in 99% of the towns and cities.
Also why do republican morons always think that the democrats/liberals are against profit?
Oh look its the big scary socialists again. They don't want anybody to own anything! See they want corporations and millionaires to pay TAXES!!!!
AC is a moron
Of course they are. Just like the telco's and long distance charges. The lines where long paid for but they just keep say that to many people are making LD calls so to help increase the number we need more money. All the while they don't actually increase capacity and just pocket the money.
How we solve this I don't know. The only thing I can think of is to move to the ISP's that aren't gouging as much as the next guy. I know that's hard. I also live in a small town and have very limited choices of ISP's.
Here's one way to try and save your self some money. Buy shares in the ISP (if public). Just like the banks. Try and get some shares so you to can get in on the profits. Yes again easier said then done. I don't have solutions for everything and everyone just ideas, and not always good ones.
The USA is a lost cause. I say we block off the boarders with them as much as possible and just let them slide off in to oblivion. Once they kill themselves off, maybe then we can let them back in to the world.
My country may not be much better but at least we have some sense when it comes to firearms.
And that's why America is now a police state.
