I didn't imply that I dislike the Leaf styling just because it's an EV. I also dislike the Versa, because the one that I've driven (coupe, not the hatchback) was a horrible experience and looked about as awesome (/sarcasm) as my 2001 Mitsu. Mirage.

Other than the rear deck height being higher than the front, I don't notice many drastic styling differences from a Cruze, Malibu or Impala. The height difference is the consequence of the Volt technically being a hatchback, so it doesn't really bother me. If you were talking about the styling of a Leaf or iMiEV, I'd be inclined to agree, which is one of the reasons why I don't own either of them.
Have you driven a Volt? I own one, I'd like to buy a second. Best car I've ever driven, with the exception of a Countach I had the pleasure of a couple miles in.
In what world do you live that Level3 is a "much smaller ISP"? Level3 is a global tier 1 ISP, FFS.
Agreed, every time I look at any various looking glass to see why something is broken on the internet, it's Cogent dropping the ball... Remember this?
Every time I have to troubleshoot a broken internet problem, and it goes up to Tier 1 land, check the looking glass... It's Cogent being stupid. As soon as this story hit... check. Sure enough, Cogent-Level3 has ~3% packet loss the last 24 hours, with stupidly high latency. Screenshot .
Anyone up for making a Co-exist bumper sticker with the BSD, OS X, Windows and Linux logos? My art skills suck, but I can host the image for everyone!
Close. "Whiz Wit" or "Whiz Witout"... with or without fried onions. Personally, I go with prov wit almost exclusively unless visitors are in town and we head to Pat's or Geno's. And now I know exactly what I'm getting for lunch.
If you haven't figured out a method to safely return an egg from a rocket trip, I've got a 4th grade science project to sell you.
Obama had not been re-elected yet when the CO incident happened. There was no way that he'd have been re-elected if his current shenanigans, with Biden as the fall guy, happened before election day. The CT incident was the spark that allowed Obama's initiatives, that would have spelled disaster for his re-election, to be brought to the public with a giant media push.
Think of the children!
(Sarcastic tin-foil hat conspiracy theory) Someone crafted the incident to force the liberal agenda that they've had to wait for since the sunset of the retarded Clinton Gun Ban (end crazy but plausible in the current political theater theory).
Agreed. In 4 years, I had 1 class with a TA (4002-210, Programming with Classes). The professor taught the lectures and coached the projects, but the TA covered the labs.
Now that class isn't even required; it doesn't look like current MIS students are required to have any real IT background. One more degree that's been watered down since the COB name change.
