Comment Re:V-8's rock (Score 1) 525 525

The leaks regarding the 2011 Mustang GT's (the V8 model) engine specs have the previous 315hp engine being replaced with a 412hp engine. It'll still get about 24mpg highway though. On the other hand, the V6's 210hp engine is being replaced by a 305hp model 2011. And get this, going from 16/24mpg to 19/30mpg. (Those numbers reflect the automatic transmision model.)

As for GM, it was the reintroduced 2010 Camaro, especially the V6 model which currently has comparable numbers to the upcoming Mustang V6, that really spurred Ford on.

Not the OP but sometimes people just get tired out. I still have my commit bit active but I make few commits these days. Life has changed for me. I no longer maintain what I used to due to burn out and haven't found a replacement area to really dive into. Couple the lack of focus I have with changes in life and work and my output has significantly dropped. Been hoping to get back involved and hopefully will a bit soon.

Participation is open source projects is just like a regular workplace. Some people stay longer than others for a variety of reasons.

No he can't because the specific point does not exist. The text someone would mostly likely cite (a few page somewhere in the 50s IIRC the last time I checked one of the house bills) is about healthcare provider to insurance provider payment transactions.

I don't believe commenting out a bunch of device drivers from GENERIC for hardware that is not even in the box will have much of an overall effect really. Yes, there are a handful of other options in GENERIC but how many of those do ppl actually comment out and how much of an effect is there really?

"That's certainly true, but if the code was provided by the original developer under the BSD licence then you would be free to re-licence it under the GPL"

You cannot relicense someone else's code. You can freely incorporate additions that are GPL licensed but the original code is still licensed under the original BSD license.

* Skip All Day Long: With the standard ad supported version of Pandora you're limited to 12 total skips per day. With Pandora One you'll be able to skip as many times per day as you'd like (note you will still be limited, thanks to licensing constraints, to six skips per hour).

I rarely skip when something sucks... I just switch stations.

It was on June 16th, 1987 that the SDF-1 received its first caller at
300bps. This little Apple ][e BBS of the late 80s turned into a Public
Access UNIX System with the demise of "killer.dallas.tx.us" during the
"Operation Sundevil" raids. Since then it has grown to become the oldest
and largest continually operating PUBNIX on the planet."
