This is what happens when a company goes public. Despite any good intentions the founders, CEOs, and board members; Wall Stree with its immoral eye on profits at any cost ends up calling the shots. Google is well on the way to becoming just another "Evil Empire".
I just checked it now on my end and it seems to be fine. Maybe it was just a transient failure?

Isn't child labor great?
There's a difference between free ranging bison and fenced in domestic cattle. BTW, bison tastes better, IMO.
"Animals can move towards water"
Which means that they rip up stream banks, kill native vegetation, and defecate in the water. Domestic cattle really destructive of the watershed and have a large negative impact on water quality. Also, sure cattle can move, but since the drought is regional they would have to move to Iowa or Indiana to get far enough away.
You know some decent languages and have a background in Mathematics. Dont' waste your time, CS is no more than an Applied Math degree "in drag". All you need is some experience which can be obtained by volunteer work, e.g. maintaining the web site of a no kill animal shelter.
BTW, since you background is in Math Ed., I assume you have good people and communication skills. That is a great way to differentiate yourself from the pack. You could end up running a tech firm if you do it right.
The TLDP is a collection of some of the most outdated info out there. I'd never point a new Linux user there. Some of those HOWTO's are seriously out of date...check the listing of HOWTO's by modification date.
He probably means Unix Graybeards, some of whom were probably amongst the early contributors to Linux (and the FSF, BSD, etc etc) No Vim without vi and Bill Joy isn't a spring chicken. No GCC without a C and Bill Kernighan is 72. You get gist of it.

If Grandma doesn't need to run Hallmark Greeting Card Creator
After all these years, there is no easy to use "Hallmark Greeting Card" or "Broderbund Print Shop" type applications for Linux.
yes there's Scribus and I suppose you could do this sort of thing in OO too, but there's no easy to set up and use: "I want to make a card" or "I want to make a Happy Birthday Banner" or "I want to make a family letterhead" type application.
And build their own great wall. Cisco, IBM, and a host of other companies would be more than happy to help.
A Conservative would say something like "properly market and manage the Turkish(tm) brand to maximize efficiencies"
So in other words, no different from any other
So autistic spectrum then?
