....or at least a non-cramped keyboard for someone with larger hands than a child.
Basically, be a professional, be pleasant, do what you are obligated to do, but don't volunteer to go further.
Sounds about right.
If someone is replacing you, they can figure the "beyond obligations" stuff out for themselves.
I can see "piracy" helping CD sales. Basically, it becomes a "try, before you buy" situation and someone wanting the information stored in a nicer way.
I don't see how it helps legal digital sales. If someone pirated X, they already have X, so why would they buy it?
Is it the case that once having pirated X, they buy X+1, not being able to find X+1 on the pirate sites?
I liked Google Reader because it was simple, organized and didn't throw a lot of glitz in your face.
Which alternative RSS reader is the closest to that?
Seriously, the TSA has been touching people's junk, irradiating them and even forcing wheelchair bound grandmothers to have their underwear searched? Now they are proactively making an effort to allow people with knives through? Last time I flew I couldn't even take my own brand of toothpaste with me.
If the TSA wants to start loosening up standards, they should start with the forced choice between having your junk touched or being nuked with their scanners.

If I was a Republican or a state representative I would be very careful about making accusations about other people's hot air emissions
Is this a new technology and policy that some ISPs are voluntarily adopting?

Any way to protect yourself?
What is to stop people from making up a "fake real name" and just plucking an address out of the phone book?
Will this bill require web site admins to require commentators to register with credit card number or cell phone number?
"Everyone votes as if they are the fabulously wealthy fat cat, that they dream about being."
Not everyone, just Republicans.
What the TEA Party & Ron Paul types don't get that it isn't 1789 anymore. The country is a lot bigger and more complex. Libertarian/individualist ideals become just a conduit for corporations and super wealthy people ( the kind of wealth they will never have ) to screw over everyone else.
In their misprinted book anything that protects the middle class or poor person is labeled "socialist"
Anyone going into NYC for a day is impressed with their subway system. It is affordable and there is a stop on almost every corner.
If "they" could find a way to reduce the remaining need for automobiles and trucks their pollution levels would drop like a rock.
So instead of being 30 years old it is only 23 years old?

Every few weeks when I log into YouTube it asks if I want to use my real name. Before I can actually get to YouTube I have to fill out why I do not. The graphics make it highly easy to switch to a real name and not so easy to opt out. Google does something similar with email accounts when you login. They want your cellphone number. The options to put it in are Big, Bright and In Your Face. The link to just go to your account is small enough you have to look at the screen for a second or two to see it.
That was pretty cool.
A few years ago I worked for a company that was still using Foxpro for many of its production systems. I found an ancient copy of Foxpro for DOS on eBay and got it running on my Ubuntu box via a DOS emulator.
