We exchanged e-mails a couple of days, but my problem is still unresolved and my Kyocera Event is still showing in the Android Market as incompatible in spite of your saying that it matches all of the requirements. Are there a lot of people having such problems or is my problem relatively rare?
Also the summary and the linked article lists the size of the current library, but I have not been able to find that actual list. Is there a list of available books so that those of us who cannot yet run the app or download their shelfie can see if we have many matches to what you can offer?
I would have preferred to have been asked, "should the Olympics be abolished?".
The Olympics is little more than dirty politics, enriching the members of the IOC with bribe money and having an overall negative impact on the common citizens of the countries that host the games. Of course, they do provide free condoms and a great opportunity for the few privileged participants to have lots of sex, but unless you're one of the uber-rich that can afford to compete then that probably isn't important to you. And lets not even get started on what they have done to legitimate businesses who innocently used the words Olympic or Olympus in their names for decades before the games came to their city. They do at least as much harm to the overall community as a Papal visit. The games and the IOC should be abolished, not grown.
Well, SONY might not be as "All-American" as "Home of the Brave" implies.
But, while the terrorists have won, SONY could do their part to rob the terrorists of their victory. Since they have decided NOT to release the movie to theaters anyway, they could score a great public relations victory by giving away lots of free copies. Imagine free DVDs at lots of retailers and/or sent to anyone who signs up for a free DVD on a Sony website getting a copy in the mail, delivered by an agent of the U.S. Government. And, of course, free digital downloads for people who don't care about quality. And it would send a nice message to all munchkin dictators. Hack us because you don't like what we say, you don't get to silence us, you get us to send out our movie to even more viewers than would have seen it before.
Not that I expect Sony to do something that would have such a positive effect; I expect them to allow the terrorists to win and focus on making money. Just saying that it is what I would do if I ran Sony. I do not.
"and the ascent vehicle that the astronauts would use to return to Venus's orbit, and home."
The summary establishes that the gravity is about Earth gravity. The "ascent vehicle" can't be something small and simple like the stories say was used to get the astronauts off the moon. With a 1G gravity well we would be talking about a large launch vehicle here. And, unless NASA has been wasting our tax dollars just for show then that also implies that it would need all of the launch pad accessories that we use here in our own 1G environment, you don't just launch something like that from a balloon suspended in hot acid.
