Think you meant 867-5309
Heh, most of the business systems I support have maybe 1 gig of ram, 60 gig hard drives, run windows xp and standard Rez is 1024x768. We replace 1 computer a month which gives us a 10 year turn around currently.
Also, we have quite a few less trees then we did in 1902..
AND that is the BIGGEST traffic law that people break now days. Every where I go people are running at 70 mph with bumper to bumper traffic. I believe the distance is supposed to be 1 car length for ever ten miles per hour. If people followed this 90 percent of the accidents that happen probably wouldn't unfortunately it seems that most people behind the wheel anymore are inconsiderate and care about nothing but themselves and shaving 20 seconds off of their time to wherever they are going.
Actually, you DON'T own the game you bought. The only thing you get with your money is a license granting you the right to play it. Been this way for a while now.
The cake is a lie.
..sorry, couldn't resist.
Yes, people have a vote, but they only have a vote between the presented candidates which are usually backed by corporate interests. Running for office is very expensive here and unless you are rich to begin with or have sponsorship generally you don't go very far.
Heh. If your work requires it then they should be paying for it. Unless of course you are self employed.
"Fluorescent lighting from hell, vending machines for lunch, 19" square monitors from the 1980's, computers running Windows XP, no service pack. " Sounds like a majority of corporate America.
This describes 75% of the systems in my company.
Yes, this was something that made me ponder as well. They make a big deal about personalizing your installation of office 2013 and the only thing that any of the options does is add some sort of squiggle in the upper right of the window bar. I found it perplexing and almost why bother.
A lot of business will not be able to use 2013 in the first place. If they are like us and 90% of our user base is still using windows xp office 2010 is the highest we can go. 2013 will only install on systems that are windows 7 or above which rules quite a few people out. We are a small shop with 17 servers and 162 workstations in house and it just isn't economical to upgrade everything. Especially with only 2 it personnel, me being one of them, and a very small budget. Currently we replace computers at one a month which would bring all of our systems to windows 7 or above within about 8 years. Hmm, think I need to go kickstart that old kaypro 2...
The odd thing is that around here a merchant is more likely to process a transaction as credit over debit. They say the fees for debit are higher. Shrug.
On average people break at least 10 laws a day, just watch people drive, what's another one to the list.
This would be interesting in the realm of communications though. If you were to isolate say 2-16 "bits" and have the equipment compact enough to read the state of these particles in a carryable device you would be looking at near real time communications no matter the distance. 2 bits you are looking at classic morse code one for a * and one for a -. 16 would be basic machine language. This would be great for spacecraft.
One of my biggest frustrations, on a security standpoint, are companies designing software around a specific java version. Are they using wholes in the JDK themselves to get their programs to work? An example of this is adp's time and attendance web server. The previous version we just upgraded from was locked in to java version 5.0x. The current version won't work above java 6.30. So that is about 120 desktops locked at that version at my site. Good thing barracuda blocks almost everything.
