Just gave up three mod points and have five more which I will abandon. This pop up crap has driven me away from this site. AMF
Wow, I'm sure in agreement with you on this. I'm very conservative and don't usually agree with liberal folks, but you are absolutely correct here, in my view.
It did it's job. It put many millions of bucks into the community that pushed for it. That it didn't find much, if anything, that will improve the community that funded it, well, that's just science I guess. Grumpy as I feel about it not coming through with what was hoped, I do want it to continue and maybe even consider a bigger collider in the near future.
Without a "hired today" foundation, there isn't much hope for tomorrow. It's up to the individual to learn more and better skills as they go along. A foundation containing more is always better, but that first significant job can mean a lot in one's attitude towards self improvement.
If it's behind a paywall, it didn't happen.
Moribund eating culture? We eat because we have to and being away from a kitchen sometimes requires that we get a bit inventive, don't ya think? A flat piece of cardboard with some cheesy goop containing pepperoni might just be welcome in some extreme circumstances. Given the option, I'd much rather have that than eat a squirming snake.
You'll also note that most of them post as "Anonymous Coward". People with a name, even one without much going for it, usually at least try to be reasonable.
It should be called Candy Thieves.
Does Digg even work anymore? It was once enjoyable like Slashdot used to be.
Why when I click to a sub thread, do I get font so tiny I can't read it without action (control +) to make it legible? This messing around with me is getting old. Like, I used to go to Digg as often as I went to slashdot, now I haven't been there in months. Is this place going to be like them, and die because they have some wild idea that won't fly?
Were it not for a good experience with games, I'd chuck this video card and its noisy fan. Other than that though, it'd be a quiet machine.
They're still in business? I walked away and never looked back. Don't see any reason to do so now either.
Seems like a lot of needless work. These things go to an antenna. Find the antenna, usually they reside under the plastic bump over the trunk or rear window, and simply disconnect the sucker. The ones over the trunk are easy to find while those over the rear window could require some digging. Even if the cell phone feature continues to work, that should take out the GPS info.
And, ole Chris is out a free man now, married to the lawyer who worked the angles to get him released. Living somewhere up the coast, Oregon, I think.
Maybe I was just lucky but I stayed with my last job over 40 years. Retired last summer and a large reason I stayed so long is because I loved my work. So much so that I created a 12 node networked Linux system at home to learn more so I could have more fun at both work and home. The knowledge gained at home did help me get a few better raises though eventually I was promoted to a position not requiring those skills. Now, it remains my main hobby and is the thing helping me enjoy all of this spare time.
