would be slightly faster and use less memory
I worked on some mobile e-mail product some 8 years ago. Call it a Blackberry competitor -- it ran on phones like the Palm Treo, Nokia E61 and various Windows Mobile devices. There was rumours of Apple making a phone -- and when it came out, it had no keys... I remember thinking -- how are you ever going to type a message without keys? Well...
Looks like prices in the UK are around 25% of the prices you quote...
Not seen the place, not been there, but I can't see a reason a restaurant won't take cards.
Your next challenge: do it on an 8088.
Most stuff "doesn't work". Cancer is a terrible disease that has *some* medicines that prolong life, by a bit, but few real cures. About the only thing that has been proven to work is chemotherapy, and that's a race -- poison the whole body, hope that you *just* out-poison the cancer and the body has enough resources left to recover. Few win the race.
Given that track record, of the "best the pharmaceutical industry has to offer" I can understand the clutching at straws. My dad, towards the end, signed on for some experimental treatment, hoping to at least add a datapoint to the body of knowledge. A large part though, is simply coming to terms with the fact that, yes, if you've been diagnosed with cancer, you will probably die of the disease.
One roof replacement -- 50.000 dollars
Day value of one used car -- 10.000 dollars
Cheque made out to the claimant, US$ 2.060.000
Great airline if you feel a need to stock up on Irish lottery tickets, sandwiches, cheap perfume, toys. They won't stop paddling you stuff from the second they're in the air until landing sets in.
Those tickets are cheap, but it's incredibly hard to compare their price. The sticker price is not the real price because of "add-on luxuries" -- there's extra fees for online check-in, luggage, paying by creditcard -- and you only get the "final" price once you're 80% thru the booking process.
As a kid, flying felt like a glamorous way to travel. Airports were exotic places you could go to to watch planes come in from foreign lands.
My kids haven't flown yet.
