Is Leonardo DiCaprio going to have the leading role ?

My Robot Avatar will then go to work instead of me; I can sit at home and watch TV,
eat potato chips (delivered by courier), and get Fat. I die at age 30 of obesity and
diabetes. This is good because a growing, young population is good for business.
I haven't figured out, though, if my Avatar will do the sex thing for me.
When I was young, I was taught that if I dig a hole deep enough, I would be shaking
hands with a chinaman.
My fear now, is that if I dig deep enough, I might just shake hands with a Jap that
glows in the dark.
You call and report this vulnerability. You think you are a hero. But look at it from their point of view.
First they verify the problem, and its true. Now they know at least ONE person, you, knows about it. Do you think
they are going to tell you "we been aware of it for three years, but no one knew..." or maybe "... we followed up on
what you said, but it will be several weeks before we can fix it
Responding to you might lead more hacks. Consider you *already* reported it to Slashdot. If I was them I would
work quietly on this and never respond to you. For all they know, you are ISIS.
Their involvement says it all.
I mean, like really, do we need *another* Windows Abor... er
When the woman moved out, I discovered my toilet tissue usage went down to less than 10%.
Here in Alaska we have laws for repeat DUI offenders. You forfeit the car you are driving. If you borrowed a car from a friend,
too bad for him. The judges sometimes have leniency on rental cars. Pretty soon, DUI, losing the car while making payments
does not look too attractive anymore.
I think placing a red background on your Driver License picture meaning at least one DUI within 5 years, would help. So if you
want to borrow Joe's car, he can look at the license and say "not a good idea, Sam."
I wonder how many software patents these revelations will bust?
# There you go, fixed it for you.
My Altair 8800 running CP/M had a washing machine size hard driver. Air compressor,
big power draw, etc. Had a 5 MB fixed platter, and a 5MB removable platter. I think
was made by Shugart. Interface was parallel port (not printer port, but similar).
In its day, it was the cat's meow.
I still have that Altair, but not the drive. I replaced with a 5MB drive to a parallel port,
8" then 5". I also experimented with IDE interface and a 3.5" drive, but I do not
remember the capacity. Then the Altair got stored away. I have a bunch of them,
and some IMSAI 8080 (a better computer).
I can predict the future. Due to pressure from Law Enforcement, the new cars
will not have steering wheels and brakes. On command from a Police Officer,
the car will lock the passengers inside, and drive itself to the nearest police
My son misbehaved and was sent to year-around school for 3 years. It is called
the Youth Detention Facility. He did not like it, but learned a lot, specially
The reason is that most women choose children and kitchen work over I.T.,
and most blacks choose Basketball over I.T. Look at *those* statistics.
I guarantee you I am right, like it or not. There, I said it.
I also bet the 17% women force at Google are for the most part secretarial
or whatever is Politically Correct to call those workers nowadays.
I recall in the movie Farenheit 451, where text based writing is banned, the
people riding the train are reading the "newspaper." It is all comics. Kinda
sorta like the Evacuation Cards we get on Jet Airliners.
