I don't really know the corporate law in US... but what if you say something like - "We will donate 999$ to EFF every time we consider that the rights of our user are in anyway under threat. This is our way of protecting your freedom."

This... had more calls about this issue then any other. Instead of gracefully give you an option to open a complex pdf (think tax forms) in something else it spits a rather stupid message about updating your pdf viewer.
I don't want to be inconsiderate... but I really don't get it how could people be bullied and not respond to it.
I was a kid with glasses - think bottle bottoms lens - kind of skinny. Moved from the country to the city - in the first week I've been called every variation of names a kid could think to say to hurt me. My response was to ignore them all and do the best I could in class. When the next level came - cornered and punched in halls I changed my attitude and went from ignoring to retaliation. The first one didn't even think I could hit him, but I did. For every punch I got I gave 2 in return. All the bulling stopped that day. I've been beaten but I had them bleeding. The gang mentality didn't work because I was the one that would smile no matter what they did. And I was put in the same bench with a kid with issues, helped him with his grades and he helped me with the other kids. The kid was an outsider too.
In high school I was too big to even bother... still the nerd, but working on the farm had it's perks.
I'm here for the ponies!
Actually what he is saying is partially true. Diesel is more efficient per liter, but also has more BTUs per liter and technically gives more bad stuff per liter. But if you look at the emission/km you get less pollution, if you look at the emission/litter you get more pollution.
Changing caps on old motherboards is my new hobby... am so good at it that I can change 1 or 10 in under 5 minutes. It takes me longer to get the motherboard out and clean it. And it takes an insane amount of time to test it. But I have a lot of dead time in my business.
You are collecting dead bookmarks.
I don't know how is in US, but in Romania there are security companies that provide 24/7 monitoring for as little as 40$ a month with a contract that guaranties a 7 minutes response, if you want lower you pay more. They include motion sensors & means to connect directly to their teams to alert the closest one. I own a small business and had no problems until now. But they usually call me if they see an unusual pattern - like opening at night or if I forget to set the motion sensors on after a certain hour. They even provide you with a panic button.
Is there anything like that for small business in US?
I use a different metric - if I can make the money in the time spent... fuck it - I buy a new one. If I can't make the money - I buy old.
On the other hand I like taking things apart.
Side note: When I was a student I used to take the slower and cheaper trains just so I can read, but for the same reason - I couldn't make the money spent on a faster train in the time gained (usually 1-2 h).
I would recommend Brother - easy to refill and no chips... Just a sprocket you can buy online. And buy a network printer, just a little bit more expensive but the convenience is awesome.
I know people who make tons of money and they steal paper from work. I'm blush when I see them doing it. Ffs 500 Sheets of printing paper costs like 5$. And if they ask the acquisitions they would get them even cheaper when the company buys in bulk and they can sell anything they can get in bulk directly to you at the acquisition costs.
All I see is that year on year Apple had a gain and the real value is around 450. The 700 was never real money, yes for a few thousand shares probably... but after that is down hill.
Are you kidding me? Lost 300 billion of its shareholder's money? Based on what? Speculations made at the lunch of the iPhone 5?
