Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
We've improved Slashdot's video section; now you can view our video interviews, product close-ups and site visits with all the usual Slashdot options to comment, share, etc. No more walled garden! It's a work in progress -- we hope you'll check it out (Learn more about the recent updates).
The Bills sure as hell can't play football so they should be doing something useful... (Go Jets!)
Also, how well does the membrane hold up to minuscule debris? Is it durable for extended voyages (outer solar system, extra solar)?
What is the maximum velocity it could reach with the available solar wind prior to it ending at the heliosheath?
If they could combine it with something to scoop up stellar gas, along with something to process the gas into energy for steering and braking, you would have something useful.
And please no Uranus comments for my subject line...
From Google HQ:
Google Cash Back is designed to help advertisers reach you with compelling offers, and to provide a new type of shopping experience that will change user behavior and attract a bunch of new users to Google. We have put in new programs for you and our advertisers designed to provide amazing shopping experiences for consumers and great opportunities for advertisers.
Our strategy for Google remains evergreen – working hard to understand the intent of your search and helping you make smarter decisions and complete important tasks.
Shopping remains one of the most important tasks people engage in while using search, and we remain committed to delivering great shopping experiences for you that help you make better shopping decisions, get great deals, and save time and money along the way. For merchants and advertisers, we have some ideas for making it easy to get a broader array of products and offers into Google, and we’ll share some details on this later this summer.
BTW, another important task is implemented our swell new feature called Google Background - we hope you like it!
Don't be evil!
By using a combination of key words (a bunch from http://www.slickdeals.net/) on bing.com (especially during the holiday season), I was able to save between 5% to 30% on a bunch of items. I knew M$ was trying to buy results and did not care - $1500 cash back in addition to more from rebates and sometimes coupons which worked with cash back is more money in my pocket....
As for the person who says it costs more to buy thru bing - I don't think so - there are some items which go on sale at specific merchants and then become awesome deals with high BCB percentages... some recent purchases: i7 980X for $780 delivered, X58 Classified 3-way SLI for $321 (includes $30 rebate), 8% on everything purchased from ebay, LCD TVs, Canon EOS 7D combo deal, newegg deals, etc. - the program has saved me a lot of money since November of 2009. Wish I had used it when it first came out.
Check out slickdeals site and you will see the posts which people have made to help people save money on all sorts of items... Yesterday it was 30% off your purchase from endless shoes (Amazon's shoe site). There are good deals to be had if you know what other places are charging.
Based upon the available information - sounds like they should fire the supervisor, train the employees on sexual harassment, and fire Mr. Negron for assault.
Unfortunately, we as taxpayers will ultimately pay for all of it...
Here is a lovely site for some light reading... http://www.paypalsucks.com/

Offer to share the information with your prof or student teacher and they will usually give you the green light or become the note taker for the class (some schools have them for hard of hearing/deaf students - R.I.T.)...
If you use something like MS OneNote you can drop all these separate pieces onto the note pages and keep them better organized. Text, your notes, the sound clips, and the diagrams...
