It comes and goes for me, particularly bad when I'm not using my split keyboard for any long period of time. My wrists would feel tingly which became especially noticeable at night. I even bought an Evoluent vertical mouse and that made little to no difference.
People may frown at people like us on this forum and indeed I've known people with terrible setups to have no problems whatsoever, but some of us are just more prone to it than others. I type a lot at work and as a fast touch typist I generally type far more than my colleagues.
I got myself a Powerball and within just 2 days I noticed a big difference! I couldn't believe how effective it is. All it takes is a few minutes each day at 5000-7000 rpm, a few times a week to maintain the strength and now I never notice my wrists tingling even after a long day at work.
2. Vendors like Dell are then free to sell an alternative browser if they wish.
Perhaps at first manufacturers will just stick with IE, but once they realise the potential of others (e.g. Firefox has more features, Safarai is faster on netbooks etc.), they'll sell machines with alternatives. Then it's all about market forces.
As one commenter on here put it, if you try and make people choose, then you are trying to force people to not be sheep! This will never work!
Why in hell should a person subject their identity and private information to the whim of the trolls on the Internet in any capacity, just to "prove" they aren't hiding something sinister? Try proving there WAS something sinister, I'll certainly take that complaint more credibly.
You've got the wrong end of the stick entirely. I wasn't suggesting that she reveal her identity. I was merely outlining an alternative truth. Personally, I can choose and decide for myself what to believe and I'm nothing like a "conspiracy nut" as you so delicately put it. The fact of the matter is Groklaw is quite an extensive source when it comes to the SCO case details. Perhaps it's just a blog, but some people might see it as more than that.
Let's suppose for a moment that she was/is under some kind of financial agreement with IBM, then that changes things entirely. I am by no means suggesting this is the case but regarding it as a possibility - especially given the bias in her posts.
Maybe my post was trolling, but it's something I have the right to do and you should not undermine. Something more constructive towards the debate would have been appreciated rather than contempt and mockery.
Was her mysterious identity ever uncovered?
Wrong. See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Internet_Explorer_7#Features_and_changes. This seems to be a change in IE7, although I thought the entire process had been decoupled within IE6... Anyhow, I'm referring to memory usage and as the graphs show, IE has no memory advantage over rival browsers.I'm sorry buddy, but it ain't a myth. What do you think runs the Windows shell? IE is explorer + html rendering engine.
"British mobile provider 3 has made an impressive step into the deregulation of the telecoms market. It abolished roaming charges for its UK customers in seven nations, meaning its UK users won't be charged for calling or receiving calls or text message on their regular cellphone when on trip."
The seven countries are Italy, Australia, the Republic of Ireland, Austria, Hong Kong, Sweden and Denmark.
