It's not that I'm a leech, it's just that desktop apps aren't my bag, man. What I hated the least about NetBeans is it allowed me to concentrate on coding my code without telling me I had to write plugins or whatever. I don't want a platform or an SDK or anything; I just want a usable text editor that works nicely with a few different types of code. I don't need something that tries to run all my tests and run my dev servers or anything, I want a lightweight editor. Some syntax highlighting options (pluginable, if you must), RegEx search/replace, that's about all I need. I want to use it, I don't want to learn its fucking macro language. Right now I'm using jEdit. I hate it. But I hate it less than I hate vi or emacs.
Chevrolet bribed some ethics-free academics to come up with a fake equation for publicity purposes. The academics took the money and invented a stupid equation per spec. Then Chevrolet issued a press release, and gullible media outlets obligingly reprinted it and discussed it. A victory for Chevrolet's marketing department, a defeat for academic integrity and sensible journalism. Don't be part of these scams.
IE 6 and IE 7 are completely different animals. For most uses, IE 7 is just a bit weird and broken, whereas IE 6 is a complete mutant clusterfuck. It's much easier to support 7 than 6.

Scotland is not now, and never has been, part of England.
And a lot of the people in this database fought *against* Scotland, one of the constituent kingdoms of the UK.
I'm with you. My contempt for Heinlein is the reason my Karma here is so terrible -- people are religious about it. He's just awful, offensive, nasty, talentless and boring.
