Man up, post as an anonymous coward, and criticize people who actually HAVE friends.
I usually don't use the area code when dialing a number within the same area code, so I'm fairly sure there's no requirement to use the area code. Of course, that's only for the handful of numbers I actually hand-dial rather than just picking from my list of contacts.
It depends on whether the area code you are in is an overlay area with another area code. If all local calls from the phone you are using are within one area code, you can probably get away with 7-digit dialing. If you're in Northern Virginia, for example, 703, 571 and 540 can all be local calls (actually, 301, 240 and 202 in MD and DC may be local calls as well) so 10-digit dialing is required.
"No, scapegoat did not start with the Greeks. Scapegoat comes from the book of Leviticus where a goat was designated to be cast out into the desert as part of atonement for sins. The Greeks actually used a cripple, a beggar or a criminal for the practice you are thinking of, not a goat."
That is wishful thinking. The written Leviticus is younger than the Greek high culture, as Leviticus wasn't finalized until Josephus (AD 37– c.100, according to Wikipedia).
Jackass. Not only do you not know anything, you can't even quote the Wikipedia article on Leviticus correctly;
... but an utter ignorance of the technology did not prevent her from making decisions about that technology.
Sounds like she belongs in Congress, serving as a member of the Committee on Science, Space and Technology.
Apparently the latest update to iOS6 increases the likelihood that an iPad/iPod user can hijack a meeting to which they have been invited.
With the recent release of iOS6, we have noticed a marked increase in support calls due to meetings having the owner of the meeting changed (sometimes called “meeting hijacking”).
Among Microsoft's recommended work arounds;
Block iOS 6 devices — Exchange server comes with the Allow/Block/Quarantine functionality that enables admins to block any device or user.
Tell users not to upgrade to iOS 6 or to downgrade their devices – This solution may work as a temporary fix until Apple provides a fix but many users may have already made the decision to update.

2112 - end of the world!
Actually, that was Rush's best album. 2012 is the end of the world.
Perfectly fine. Anything that would drive that crappy company out of business is a win. Their pizza tastes like warmed over turds.
So, you're a turd connoisseur, then?
That's just common sense.
Thought that was Neil Young.
Yeah, but this is Slashdot... Who do you think the denizens are more likely to remember?
Id prefer to underclock, extend the usage
Remember what the Kurgon said in Highlander - "It's better to burn out than to fade away!"
Hopefully, they all told truth about their age...
Assuming they were telling the truth, it would mean that people in that village actually age at a much faster rate than non-residents. One man from that village was 122 years old in 1971, and three year later, he was already 134! So yes, you die much older there, but your clock is going to be ticking really fast down there. Better hurry!
Human overclocking! That's what this project is all about!
