I use a combination of MythTV for video/DVR and Subsonic for my audio collection.
Just ask Wil Wheaton if the internet existed when TNG was on the air. Poor guy had to put up with all manner of abuse in alt.wesley.crusher.die.die.die . We may only have had usenet, gopher, ftp, and archie, but we got by.
And Wil - if you are reading this, I never posted in a.w.c.d.d.d , but did laugh at stuff read out. Sorry about that.
If Paramount/CBS were smart, they would fund the creation of the Marjel Barret voice, to be used in all future Star Trek projects, and set it free. From what I've heard in interviews, I thinks he would approve.
If you think THAT looks like cartoon swears, you should see APL code.
I prefer Norm's version
Women, you can't live with them . . . pass the beer nuts.
Agreed. Sound like what they need is a marketing person. If it does taste the same, don't look at it as waste, look at it as a limited time premium product !
Never heard of X-Plane before, but I just bought the Android version. I wuld never have heard aboutt his otherwise. Patent Troll, meet Streisand effect !
Or the classic chrome version:
But yes, I look at my wrist for the time.
The article says the company that made the synth is out of business, yet the wikipedia entry for DECtalk links to the company that owns the rights, and it looks like they still make an RT available for linux:
I would love to know what the people who see no 'cavernous ideological divide' are looking for, that the parties look the same to them.
The last 40 or so years have seen some significant shifts. The Democrats have been taken over by those looking for European style socialism. In attempts at moderation, the Republicans lost their focus on small federal government and states rights. Each compromise takes us down the progressive path, so yes you end up with these silly bailouts. There is now a resurgance of Republicans who have had enough and are trying to push back to their small-government roots.
No divide ? One side things the government should provide for everyone, the other that people should provide for themselves. What are you looking for ?
ARGH -- that shouldbe "if it was so UNacceptable
The problem is that the US doesn't mind taking down foreign sites that use
The fact that the US controls all TLDs is unacceptable to many people.
Our of curiosity, if it was so acceptable, then why did you all connect to our Internet in the first place ?
I mean, if I go to someone's party, and I don't like the music they play, I leave. I don't bitch and moan they should play what I like.
The US government does not protect free speech and lets states, local governments, schools and other institutions and private companies restrict at will it sems.
And this is how we want it. Our constitution lists specific powers that the federal (US) government has. All others are left to the states to be decided on a local level. You don't like you New York, move to Utah, or Nebraska, or California. You have choices. That is your freedom,
Keep something in mind here. The population of Holland (according to Wikipedia) is 6 million. The population of New York CITY is 8.1 million. Let me say that again: We have more people in one city then in your entire region.
Oh yes, ignorant American knows Holland isn't a country. The population of the Netherlands is 16million, the population of New York STATE is 19.3 million. One of our states is bigger then your entire country, and we have 50 states. The comparison of a European country to the US just isn't valid, it would be better to compare to a single state. The US would be comparable to what the EU might become.
If you really want to wrap your head around this, find the BBC series "Stephen Fry in America", and/or the companion book.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stephen_Fry_in_America. He travels to all 50 states, treating them like 50 countries. It might help you grasp just how different Americans can be.
