paywall protected websites are a pain in the bahookie, hence using Google to at least get most of the first paragraph.

And this is the thing the "right holders" are too stupid to comprehend: when offered a choice of paying to read the content or watching paint dry? I'll watch the paint, thanks.

Comment Basic life skills (Score 1) 737 737

Essential - cooking, baking, bread making.

Brewing is another basic skill that produces a product that can be used for barter.

Farming / growing crops - how else will you get the grain/fruit for cooking?

Hunting - obvious one there. But the other side of that coin is butchering. How many butchers do you know?

Sewing, to repair clothes that won't be replaceable for a while.

I could go on.

Comment BES was awful (Score 2) 278 278

the company I worked for in 2001 - 2005 trialled BES on Windows 2000 Server and Exchange $whatever, configured especially for BES.

In that environment, BES blew goats. It constantly locked up, lost email, required reboots of the server, etc etc. The company *ran* back to GROUPWISE as a superior alternative to BES.

"Solar is dead. Most of the US doesn't get enough sun to make solar feasible. "

Apparently I have been hallucinating all the sun in the Southern US States. Who knew that coulds could be so bright and shiny? Who knew that cloudiness would make me so sun... sorry, cloud-burned?

Wow. I have been learned good.

The best things in life go on sale sooner or later.

Working...
