You know, about 2 years ago I got rid of all the old copies I had. I didn't go back and 'reference' them. I just kept them. I figure they guys that pick up the recyclables thought they got a jackpot. Only have 1 or 2 on hand at a time. Anyway, this isn't Usenet in '95. You can get much more in 5 minutes of searching if you try.
It's easy. Put it down. Then do some else.
Short commute (I live in a small city/metro area) so I listen to WPR/NPR when I drive to and from work.
Down thread I list The Economist as well. I discovered early on that I can't get through it cover to cover in a week. I wish I had the time to read all of it every week. But, damn, it is the best of all the ones I read. It may be expensive but it is worth every cent. It is one that I and Mrs. Fool will not give up.
1) The Economist. Gotta read that each week because the news in the US is too US focused.
2) Playboy. Had a subscription since '89. Don't judge me.
3) Wired. It's a good read.
4) Fast Company. It was insanely cheap. Now I know why.
Mrs. Fool gets "Good Housekeeping" and "Midwest Living".
The little Fool gets "American Girl" and "National Geographic Kids".
Sure, lots of dead trees, but you can't spend 100% in front of a screen.
This is a HUGE blessing. I have been working for a company that uses an offshore outsourcer for quite a few years. They suck the brains of the "re-badged" US employees, then let them go, then bring in kids from offshore to perform their jobs. This needs to stop.
I was going to say something similar. This comment from the CEO of the company that drove down my street snapping pictures of my house.
Good God, I hate Google.
I guess I should be clear: IPX was layer 3.... SPX was layer 4. The use of the mac address in the IPX address reminded me of the use of the mac address in IPv6. The network address in the first part of the IPX address was the network. But you could assign any network address you wanted. So it had that shortfall.

I have very fond memories of 3.12, running a few site servers in the US, Mexico and Honduras. Although installing or patching was a pain with boxes of floppies to feed in to the server. It did what I asked it to do.
When I first looked at IPv6 addresses I had an IPX flashback. When we transitioned to IP from IPX (and to NT 4) I thought "these numbers seem finite compared to what is possible in IPX."
Whatever happened to the "Old Novell Guys" website from the late '90's? I am one.
I can vote in private for just about everything, but to sign this I need to sign in? No thank you.
It not only crashed Safari, but also crashed the bug report when I typed what I did to cause the crash!
This is fun!
Honestly, I liked Vista. I use Win7 at work and really miss Vista. I never understood what was so bad about it. Things I could do easily in Vista were obscured in 7.
I still get this in dead tree form. I can keep it in the bathroom (where electronics aren't welcome) and I get a look at international news that is so hard to come by in the US. That and Playboy (yes, Playboy) will be the last magazines I give up.
all you *can* do....
Dang, must read before submit.
