This is actually an excellent explanation. Thanks!
Does anyone know if SkyOS ever had a "release" on a professionally printed CD/DVD? I can't seem to find actual evidence of this -- only the ability to download/burn a SkyOS Live CD.
Mod parent up. This is my biggest concern too -- setting/continuing the premise that it's totally ok and expected that products have arbitrary artificial lifetimes.
Thank you good sir. I don't understand why people keep thinking GCN/PS2/etc used OpenGL.
Cafe Macs is great, but yes, ridiculously crowded at noon -- better get there by 11:30 if you want a table.
And that BJ's has got to go -- bland food and below average beer for exorbitant prices in a dull setting
Mod AC parent up. Steve certainly was at Apple and worked on Quicktime, but I wouldn't call him the "creator" of Quicktime.
Why is it that as I get older, I am more easily trolled? I would expect it to be the other way around.
This of course comes with its problems. Afghanistan, with its highly illiterate and impoverished population, might be a victim of a resource curse, where wealth in natural resources leads to bad socio-economic situations like ethnic violence, authoritarian regimes and so on. It will of course be highly interesting to see how the US government now views the Afghan war. On one hand, it is imperative that the Taliban doesn't regain control and on the other, it is hard to justify being responsible for the development of a state that has $ 1 Tr. in mineral reserves.

And that's what happened to the Martians.
If you think the police don't care that much then you must not know how they can take everything you own over simply having an immature plant in your home. Dealing or not dealing, if you're manufacturing they will probably own you and all of your possessions.
What's worse is they will also take your WoW account, shard all of your purples, and sell all of your gold for money to fund their War on Weedcraft.
I personally don't like the big video screen being used for controls. In my "analog" car I can change the radio station, adjust the temperature, and turn on the AC with convenient knobs and buttons that I know where to find without even looking and I get good tactile response. My in-law's Lexus has a smaller screen to do this and it was always in the wrong mode and difficult for the driver to quickly change the temperature or radio due to having to change modes.
That said, the screen would be nice for watching videos, but please, not to control the car's functions.
I completely agree. The touch-screen panel reminds me of the BMW iDrive system -- it's technically neat, but flawed in practice. I'd rather not be touching buttons on a touch screen or dialing around to navigate menus while driving for my own (and others') safety.
Capsicums include some pretty violently hot (and delicious) peppers, such as the Bhut Jolokia.
I was able to obtain some Bhut Jolokia seeds and will be attempting to grow them next year.
As for your claim that the word "pepper" is reserved for peppercorns, I'm pretty sure http://www.chilepepperinstitute.org/ might disagree. But that is probably, as you say, a difference in common names and probably a regional thing.
