I would go a step further: most people have no idea what a "feed" is, never mind what to do with it ! (present company excepted !)
In further news a group of motorists worked out how to avoid getting fined for speeding: they always drove through the village under the posted speed limit. One driver, wishing to remain anonymous, commented "this will show city hall that they can not get money out of me without a fight".
Did your girlfriend confess to the police ? Would that have got you off ?
First thing I thought of as I read TFA was: The Cuckoo's Egg
Then my goal is to thwart your retirement plan. I will contract a low-wage programmer from a yet-to-be-determined developing country...
Your plan-to-thwart contains a potential bug.
If, say, the US and Chinese economies continue for the next 25 years on their current trajectories it is quite possible that the "low-wage programmer" you speak of will live in the US, and hence the GP may get your contract !
You are selling an Ad-blocker, so you circumvent ad-blockers (including your own !) by posting a Slashvertisement !! Sweet !!
> does anybody know is there any reason people set $X.95 price sometime instead of "usual" $X.99?
Because people are getting wise to the fact that $X.99 is near enough $X+1, whereas $X.95 is closer to $X ? Not !
I am running a test: still waiting on a result:
ping -W 118000 voyager1.nasa.gov
Would this count as a start ? Artemis (SKDR S/Ka band Data Relay).
(Anglo-German family in central Germany.) I am not sure they *have* to buy a proportion, but the do buy all the electricity we can produce from our community solar project on the apartment building roof, and they pay over the odds for it (it is better for us to sell to the grid and buy it "back" through a green tariff then to wire it directly into our homes !)
Yep: we live in a Passiv standard house in central Germany, heated by sun through large windows, body heat and whatever the appliances give off and helped by a ventilation system with a heat exchanger. Works great, and totally draught free, even next to the window in sub 0C temperatures.

FWIW I have noticed new stuff appearing rated A+++ (3 pluses !!)

The post I replied to specified a 747
- F4 30,000 kg empty, 747 > 162,400 kg empty, 300,000+ max
- the F4 test had water in the fuel tanks
- F4 impact speed 775 kmh, 747 mac speed 998 kmh (probably not worse case: fully loaded, descending, thrusts on).
So a fraction of the weight, no fuel, low speed: not very reassuring
> Around here, the nuclear power plants are designed to survive a 747 flying into them.
Care to share a reference ? IIRC, the last I heard the *best* designs currently in use could only survive a direct hit from a light aircraft (sorry: no ref !).
Well if you had ever breathed the air we get round here this would not surprise you: all you need is a condenser
