The Packers used to play a couple of home games every season in the old Milwaukee County Stadium. They haven't done that since the '90s (and County Stadium was razed in 2000) but Milwaukee is still considered part of the Packers home media market.
"Specifically prohibiting a discussion of the scientific process is a recipe for educational chaos. To begin with, it leaves the knowledge the kids will still receive—the things we have learned through science—completely unmoored from any indication of how that knowledge was generated or whether it's likely to be reliable. The scientific process is also useful in that it can help people understand the world around them and the information they're bombarded with; it can also help people assess the reliability of various sources of information.""

Thanks for the clarification. When I read WinRT, I thought it was shorthand for "Windows RT".
Knowing that, I'll stand by my original comment and clarify that I meant "Windows RT", the tablet OS that looks and feels like Windows but won't run regular Windows apps like a Surface Pro can (or am I mistaken about the Surface Pro too?) then it needs to go away or a name change. It generates confusion. I mean, the difference between Windows 8 and Windows 8 Pro is the feature set, but they run the same applications. The difference between a Surface and Surface Pro is much greater than that, unless you consider "running the same applications" just a "feature."
Before I agree or disagree, I have to ask: are you equating the Modern UI with WinRT? Unless I'm mistaken, they are not the same thing. WinRT uses the Modern UI but the Modern UI is not exclusive to WinRT.
Having said that, I would disagree and state that WinRT does need to go away; if it looks like Windows and feels like Windows but doesn't run Windows apps then it's confusing.
At the same time, I recently upgraded my laptop from Win7 to Win 8.1 (I got the $15 upgrade to Win8 Pro way back when) and I'm getting used to the Start menu now being the Modern UI Start screen. When I remote in using Remote Desktop from my iPad, it feels quite natural and useful. When I'm at my machine and using a mouse, not so much.
I recall reading (and re-reading on occasion) the Halloween Documents. Have you written anything regarding any other opponents to OSS, or perhaps a look back on them and see what the end effect of Microsoft's attempts did long term?
Ok, after using a little more...
-I don't see the link to return to the classic or mobile sites at the bottom of the page
-as has been pointed out, quoting the parent is a manual operation. Boo hiss...
I agree with the idea of keeping classic as an option but still developing the beta until it works just as easily as classic.
I got the beta site going on my iPad and it's not that bad really. I can clearly see the comment entry boundaries, the text is easy to read, no wide white spaces on either side...maybe it's because I'm on an iPad, so I'll try it later on my notebook.
My only issue so far is that logging in on my iPad doesn't seem work. It just spits me back to hand main beta page with no indication of being logged in or out.
I came up with the name back in the early 1990s when I first enlisted in the Navy; it made sense back then, and I never bothered to think of anything else.
Don't think I haven't considered it.
I'm of two minds regarding politics:
(1) I'm so sick if the Washington nonsense that sometimes I wish I could just forget the whole thing, tune it out, and just go on with my life. That usually lasts two minutes, because it does, and will, affect me whether I want it to or not.
(2) actually run and bring back as much inside info as I can, to REALLY inform my employer (the CITIZENS I represent) of the nonsense that goes on. Really try to do some good and represent We, the People.
What worries me about (2) the most is the intense pressure that comes from big donors. I'd be concerned that I'd become just as corrupt, power-hungry, and full of myself as those in Washington.
You know what? Even though I don't travel with my laptop, I'm thinking the same thing.
With the recent revelations of the ability to intercept hardware en route and infect the firmware with spyware, I wonder if there's a possibility that TruCrypt could be circumvented. I suppose it could, since the data must reside in RAM unencrypted for use by the processor.
I also don't know if whole-drive encryption is really necessary (why would I encrypt my system files?) or if it has an adverse effect on SSD life.
Every time I read about a new attack on the Bill of Rights, I write to my Congressional representation. I also vote to replace my representation since clearly they aren't representing We, the People.
I'm getting tired of writing these letters, yet I'll do it again and remind my "representation" of my position. Anybody else?
Most people don't need the flexibility and attendant hassles of PCs anymore. Just give them an iPad or Nexus and be done with it.
And how do you run MS Office on those? The poster specifically mentioned MS Office.
How about Windows 7? From what I remember about the steaming pile that was Vista, 7 looks very similar. Sure it's new, but if it looks the same that may be acceptable.
