I agree. This is my favorite book and I hope they do a decent job of it.
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
Yeah, I know. They are a much better experience.
Sometimes they offer audio files for just a few dollars more. They are way better, but I am usually too cheap for it. And I don't want any hassle from questionable downloads. So I will stick with my robot voice reading to me for now.
I got my phone to read Kindle books and it changed my life. Look up accessibility settings, iPhone and Android can both do it. Any Kindle book is now read during my commute. Sure, some pronunciation is awful, but giving me an extra 5+ hours reading each week is a godsend.
I doubt they discount the expected value based on the possibility of a split pot.
Without knowing how many people are playing this round, you don't have totally accurate estimates.
"Don't have that much cost..."
People don't want to give up affordable cars for battery cars that cost $10k+ more, have less range, take longer to refill, and have battery packs that need to be replaced well before 200,000 miles.
Electric companies realize that transient alternative energy still requires full tradition infrastructure for weeks when the wind don't blow and the sun don't shine. This costs a lot for underutilized plants and peoples rates will skyrocket.
Mandating more auto inspections will lead to increased costs for consumers. Who drives old cars that are probably out of spec? Poor people. Why do you hate poor people so?
These things cost billions an billions, cause hardships that you have not considered, and are not extremely effective.
What the hell was Lexx? I don't know, but I liked it.
If the government wants us to pay taxes, why doesn't the government set up an online system so that we can pay our taxes without this added fee?
H&R block does it, Turbo Tax does it. The government still allows you to pay using magnetic tape.
How is it different? In both cases, the police are accessing publicly available visual information. In one case, you have officers and another a camera. Surveillance was not illegal before, but now it is? Can cops still sit and watch without a warrant?
Just do your illegal stuff in the privacy of your own home with the blinds drawn.
I never saw the Odyssey, but the Odyssey 2 was a thing of beauty. When we were playing with our crappy Atari 2600, my buddy with a O2 had great graphics, analog joysticks, and a keyboard built in.
Too much golden age nostalgia!
Coal plants are beautiful - if you are a chemical engineer.
They don't chop up birds. They don't blind pilots. They produce energy basically 24/7.
It came back online eventually. Thanks!

I will admit I hate that so much cruft is installed by default. They have this "Blink feed" crap that takes up a whole panel and there is no way to remove it. Not cool.
Then Verizon force-installs a bunch of crapware too. I don't want to spend time rooting my phone to purge that crap. Forced software installs are my only complaint on this phone...
HTC made some great stuff. Many times in the last weeks I have been asked how I like my new iPhone. I have a two-year old HTC One (m7).
But my old phone still has higher resolution than the brand new 6, higher DPI, more RAM, and working NFC. I assume the HTC One m8 is even better now, with a new version coming out soon.
I hope the 9 is great and gets HTC running full steam again.
If you give nekkid pictures to a third party to keep for you and you don't even seal them in an envelope (encrypted?) is that a good idea?
If your security to retrieve your pictures back from the third party is a single passphrase, is that a good idea?
To some people, there is a big difference between a picture of a nekkid rear end and a full action shot. Are full detail graphic photos and movies a good idea?
