Government mostly got out of the way and let it happen. When this place called The United States of America is alowed to run unrestrianed amazing things happen and most always for the best. Get the best a brightest and let them do their thing but don't tie their hands. That is the way our federal government is support to work, be there to support not to dictate, protect, not overpower. Set a goal for the nation and then watch it happen, force an idea on this nation and watch it become so mired in so much red tape it will never function correctly.
It was a disaster from the beginning!!!!
I prefer the barter system. What you got? I got an old guitar!
The tricorder is the most amazing diagnostic tool of all time!!!
Call Brother Maynard!!!
Amen to not using Maxtor. I have never had any luck with Maxtor drives. WD or samsung are all i use.
I have a server, Windows server 2003, running at my house with an old Soyo Dragon board, 2 gigs Kingston value memory, athlon 2500+, running the factory AMD heatsink and fan, with an 80 gig samsung hdd for my pmaster drive and a Western Digital 500 gig for a slave, and an Nvidia TNT 32 video card. All this stuff is well over 8 years old. My first power supply was a soyo rapter that lasted 5 years, since that time I have been through about 6 different power supplies, mostly because i just throw in whatever I happen to have laying around, I have a crystal supply in there right now and is doing a fine job. This machine runs almost continuously since it is my domain controller and file server and other than the power supplies, I haven,t had any issues. Oh, it did once have to replace the north bridge fan once as well.
Why would you want to have sex with a "stranger" even if you did have a condom?
What is the carbon foot print of these co2 lasers? How much carbon is used to process the paper sticker compared to the laser etching?
:) Not that I care, but this will be raised by the climate change folks.
I can't believe this wasn't one of the choices. Power companies are total evil. They constantly raise rates and always treat you like your a bum if you can't pay your bill on time. They have no discernible customer service skills and can cut service at will. I am about 6 months away from having my own system in place and will be forever grateful for it.
What I am saying is that if we were able to destroy our species then we would have died out a long time ago. This whole climate thing is just a scheme to put money on peoples pockets and scare others into paying out the money. When we purposely try to change the climate we are going to screw up things more than all of the indirect so called human changes have done. I for one don't want anyone dumping stuff into the atmosphere for any reason, that can't be a good idea. Maybe the oceans need a good dose of alka-seltzer to neutralize the acid. That make as much sense as blowing dirt into the atmosphere. All these fixes could cause real problems. By the way, if the human species dies out isn't that just natural selection? Why worry it may just be time for the lizard men to show up and take over an over baked earth.
I think if we just leave it all alone it will take care of itself. All this science is just a best guess anyways. If mankind is able to destroy the world it would have died a long time ago. It seems the more we try to fix things the worse they get. Give the environment some credit and let it fix itself.
I live in rural Texas just south of Houston. I have had my WISP service for a year and a half now. Before that my only option was an aircard. We home school our kids and I have a 10 machine network. This WISP service has been far more than adequate for my needs. I get a real 3 meg down and a full 1 meg up. The price is 45.95/month. On most weekends my 4 boys and I, that makes 5 people, play medal of honor on line and never have an issue with speed and there is no lag or issue associated with our connection. It works in any weather and I have never experienced an outage. Following hurricane IKE we were with out power for 18 hours, one of the lucky ones, and when the power came back on the internet was still working. We were in the eye wall of IKE for the duration of the storm as well. I am only 22 miles from Galveston. I am sold on my WISP service.
