when bullets are flying at least there is faint hope the person behind the crosshair is directing them. when a gas bomb gets dropped every mother, child and baby sleeping in their bad in the freaking area suffocate and die you moron
or didn't call the examiner's supervisor. The supervisor's name and phone number are provided with every official notice that explains a rejection. And there is more than one option to appeal and get the Examiner's reasoning reviewed by people with higher pay-grades.
You apparently have no idea what you are talking about. The patent is followed through by a single examiner, and all and any appeals all way until the final rejection ALL go through the said bastard. There are no balances and checks, if the examiner says an "A" in your patent is a "Z", you can argue all you want and that won't make a difference. I had three rounds with an examiner who returned completely irrelevant references to the patent, and in the end, he just said -- I don't give a fuck, I'll still reject your patent... Only after final rejection you can file an appeal that will be reviewed by a different examiner(s). But the chances are this new bastard(s) will be just sitting next to your old bastard
It depends on the spinning disk I suppose. I upgraded from striped 15K RPM SCSI drives. The SSD was noticeably faster, but not anything on the scale I was hearing.
I guess you missed this part
Fix that, and I bet you'll see far more people staying. I mean, why wouldn't we want to? US isn't perfect, but it's vastly better than all developing countries out there.
You probably hadn't been around for the past 3-5 years. Why would anyone *want* to come to the US? The country with ~100% GDP/debt ratio, fiscal cliffs every 12 month, deadlocked politicians, out of control copyright and "terrorism" legislation, overpriced (understatement) health care, failing schools, no real manufacturing, and advanced r&d focused on the fads along the lines of twitter and facebook??? there are still very sad places around the world, but fyi most of the "third world" had started to carve its way out of the shit-hole the US had been keeping it in for the past 50 years.
What will be really interesting is if, as I strongly suspect, Google does not give its own products any extra "boost" in search results, or even in ads
I like the way you think: I also think I am a lot smarter than the four FTC commissioners and one year they spent investigating this could be better spent for the issue at hands drinking bear and chasing cheeks like I do.
