The Siberia Times article talks about a plan to put "not less than four seismic stations" in the region.

Now will ICANN put its foot down
It had better hope so, because giving entire TLDs to specific big companies could easily be the straw that breaks the camel's back in terms of the rest of the world accepting US-led administration of the general Internet. There's plenty of scepticism already, but organisations like ICANN are tolerated because frankly no-one has much of a better idea or wants to take on the responsibility. However, it is not difficult to think of a better idea than letting big businesses rewrite the established rules in arguably the most important address space in the world today for their own benefit.
Domain squatting is over. I, for one, welcome our new entire TLD squatting overlords. </sarcasm>
I'm not a kid by any stretch, but Rock Band did let me live the rock star lifestyle in a small way. Toward the end of the craze, a local radio station had a contest up at Lake Tahoe where the brand prize was $400 worth of bottle service at one of the fancier nightclubs at Harveys casino. My boyfriend and I went up on stage with two random guys we met that night to fill out the band and won with a rendition of Aqualung. A couple weeks later the four of us went up there and got absolutely blasted. Just like rock stars!
On the mobile layout, only the first line of your comment was visible, and I thought you were going to say something about Bill Millin.
A corporation is not a person, however that is not what is meant by 'corporations are people', the people in question are the people who start/run/own the corporations. Corporations are 1 or more people that own the corporation and the speech of the person that owns a corporation is limited by government, when government denies that person the right to use his corporation to express his view.
You're blaming him for your lack of willpower?
It's called a joke.
What, do you reinstall Deus Ex every time someone mentions that game too?
I tend to agree about the icons, but I do think flat design is particularly bad in this respect. By its nature, it removes tools that could otherwise be used for distinguishing different types of content, establishing hierarchy, and directing the user to important details.
The Microsoft style of flat as seen here isn't as bad as the more extreme "monochrome line art" version that is plaguing web sites at the moment. Even so, all those subtle lighting-based effects we used to see, and even the not-so-subtle styling of say Apple's older metallic or aqua looks, could serve practical purposes as well as creating a signature style for a platform.
Blocked in the US (shocker) but no worries. I have it on my NAS. Thank you, though.
I was born in the USSR, not an American, lived all over the world and maintain a 5 flag strategy. I have a better understanding of the global situation than many people on this planet who have never even left their own city in their lives.
As to the rest of your comment, clearly you cannot read. I am not talking the general population, I am talking about welfare recipients, so try and stay on topic, would you please?
No, I meant I blame him that I'm going to spend the evening watching a movie with Steve Guttenberg in it.
Without an understanding of programming, you can't reliably tell how similar a prior project is.
It is 2015 today, isn't it? Did you have to use your hands? It's like a baby's toy!
He might have had a male mentality, but he wasn't humanoid. He was basically a tall WALL-E. "Closer than R2D2" still leaves a lot of ground to cover.
Johnny 5 was a sentient robot, not an android (not human-shaped).
Dammit, now I have to find the HDD with that movie on it. I blame you.
