I'm not sure if someone who plays Casual Game is always a casual gamer. My uncle (Who must be in his 60s.) is obsessed/addicted to Bejeweled. At every family get together he is talking about his high scores and how he can beat his wife's ass (at bejeweled.) He may be playing a "Casual Game.", but I would not describe him as a casual gamer.
4k of RAM?!? How about 256 bytes, expandable to 512. Here was my ACTUAL keyboard... http://www.vintage-computer.com/images/heathet3400.jpg
I don't know this Hilter you speak of.
I wonder if he was caught ripping/burning a DVD that would have resulted in being evicted?
From where I'm standing you are getting a +5 for mis-quoting and mis-representing what that person meant. Also, creating a gross generalization of the slashdot crowd.
The old Mass-Hole of the mountain.
Perhaps you could throw some pillows on it and use it as a sofa. It could power your plasma tv when its not taking you to work.
Easy is as easy does. I was thinking something like a battery pack on wheels that rolls out from under the vehicle and you roll the other one in. 1000 lbs of batteries? Thats half the weight of a typical car. Someone needs to get on that.
Or just keep a spare battery pack in your garage. Come home, swap'em and you're ready for the next trip.
Let me just summarize the parent for you. 1. Generalized statements about a population without any studies indicating a statistical or causal relationship to back them up. 2. Anecdotal example of a one scenario that backs up his generalized statement without any studies cited that provide a statistical or causal relationship to back it up. 3. Expression of an opinion as a fact followed by a combined statement of opinion as fact followed by another generalized statement without any study cited to back it up. Now my opinion. I think that if we are going to have a debate on the benefits of a particular point of view, we should be sure that we express the WHY and HOW of our opinions by providing a cited source of actual research that follows the scientific method for determining results. Gut reactions to anecdotal examples does not a well-informed opinion make. Insightful, my ass.
Yes for want of a loss you are. But as our presence in this forum indicates we place our attention to that which makes our interest. Santa Cruz may be a distant location from where we stand, but their operation is within the context of the software we employ. Should the subject be changed to more enjoyable matters perhaps we could pontificate about that delicious beverage that the Tranya is. Whether ranting about the uniformity of goodness of our desired software framework or perpetuating the consults of the monopolistic vendor, Tranya is ever present in its ability to provide delicious refreshment.
We all desire to have the multimedia data streams flow through our entertainment devices. From tither and yon, we coalesce the elements to build complete edited fabrications of the initial entertainment distribution. We consume voraciously the images and waveforms and hunger for even more largess, compiling and building large storage complexes. Until one spills the Tranya onto the devices rendering them non-functional. We cry and feel saddened by our loss, but the Tranya is still there to comfort us in our hour of need.
No holiday celebration is complete without the delicious liquid refreshment that the Tranya is. So many have fallen to its aromatic and tasty charms. Yes, we do relish it quite a bit. Its not just for star ship attacks, it is a delightful quenching of any celebratory thirst. Once you have partaken of the Tranya, you will understand. That citrusy belch inducing liquid cannot be beat. The Tranya, it burns!
The alterations of of images transposed from within the confines of allocated semiconductor memory is a travesty of trustworthiness that makes on think of the simpler days of the chemical process for capturing images and storage on layered flexible devices. Those recollections also recoup melancholy days of sipping the Tranya amidst the family on late autumn holidays. One weeps for what this has become.
A legislative doctrine to remedy the insufficient penality of perusing communication records may be the change we need, but as our undergarments may get soiled for lack of replacement so will our government forensic investigators. So lets all sip some Tranya and celebrate the coming of a new age in legal manifestations that bring about restrictive circumstances endangering our ability to perceive what is a new reality.
