Wow, can you show me how to do that sometime this weekend? You know I'm just not that good with computers...
Does VOIP over VSAT uplink from the middle of nowhere count as a landline? It certainly looks like one, but the longest 'line' is about 50 meters to the router stack/modem.
Since everyone in The South is too scared to drive on half an inch of snow, I have the roads all to myself!
Can you name ten things on your present vehicle that make no design sense whatsoever? I'd imagine you can without breaking a sweat, and on something that was designed by human hands. Now take a biological organism, something that thru a process of winner-take-all competition somehow managed to develop into a dominant form: would that form be perfect? Would every piece of the puzzle fit perfectly together in an ordered tapestry? Does the operating system you are currently running still have vestiges of long-unused or obsolete code that do things they were never intended to do but not fatally destroy the final work?
Natural selection does not require perfection. It doesn't even require mediocrity. It only requires that there be something lower on the ladder than you are. But as long as we're asking, what happened to my awesome prehensile tail?
I couldn't believe I hadn't thought of it before. After a few weeks of literally stripping down to shorts living in a room that regularly hit 90 degrees, I discovered that the basement was perpetually at 68.
Haven't come out since.
