In order to keep America safe, does anyone know where I can send my emails and phone records to until this whole misunderstanding is resolved? I'd hate for a terrorist to get me because my information was private.
I've been really impressed with my Baytrail powered Windows tablet, and this might not be a bad option to turn an old monitor into an all in one PC(it looks like Windows 8 is doable as well as Linux in general) for most tasks that aren't too intensive like gaming. Though if my tablet is any indication, the dual core version with 2GB of RAM should be able to hand Civ V to an extent.
I admit to having a rather different opinion regarding semicolons, but that's only because I use them in a very different context.
I've run into this before, too. Eventually, the performance advantages I gained as an individual by having a much better setup (software, hardware or both) got completely offset by the lack of interoperability with everyone else.
I've been waiting for ODT editing to come to ownCloud for a while now so I could drop my last Google usage outside of search. I just wish there was a way to use it while turning off the collaborative stuff. Things seem to go wonky when you don't close a document properly sometimes.
I visited Moscow in 1985, at the height of the cold war. It was Reagan vs. (I think) Andropov, the USSR was the Evil Empire, and Moscow was the sluggish heart of a gray, shopworn police state.
Today, the BRIC nations are still the big economic wave, even post-2008. A friend went to Russia a few years ago on an adoption trip. From his pictures, Moscow was a brightly painted, active city. At least in the parts tourists went, the brass was polished, the streets were clean and the streetlights all worked.
Strange how the world changes.
After how I crashed mid-day in Bucharest AND made you miss your train, I was afraid to ask!
Yeah, this will be a romantic getaway for us. It's the first trip we've taken without kids in... in... actually, I can't remember the last one. Austin, TX for a wedding, maybe? 8 years ago?
If they keep inviting me over, I'll keep bouncing around all the European cities I never thought I'd get a chance to see. Who knows... maybe Budapest will be one of them! 8-)
Will do. I'm always careful about such things, especially far from home.
I'm looking forward to it!
After a talk I gave in Bucharest last year, my name has apparently gotten on somebody's list of "speakers worth paying for". This fall I'll be going to Prague, invited by the same parent organization as last year. Unlike the trip to Bucharest, where I was traveling alone, I've managed to convince my wife to come along on this trip. Expensive, but it's a great time of life to do it, and when's the next time she's going to see Prague?
Good summary, thanks.
The old mobile site wasn't really mobile, so I guess anything is better, though it's a pretty slow and heavy site it seems. It looks to be working in Firefox for Android now, that's an improvement over the last time I used the beta.
So how long until
