alibaba.com targets the wholesale market; but there is also aliexpress.com which is for the consumer market and you can buy items individually there.
I have an HP Microserver with the Xpenology software on it. It serves as a Time Machine for the Mac, it has some iSCSI targets which are mounted on the Windows Machines as backup drives, and Synology Cloudstation serves as a DropBox like service which means that my most important documents can be synced remotely.
On Windows, you want C:\Users and C:\ProgramData. ProgramData is a hidden folder.
I spelt it out in words because I was talking about English. Obviously French is completely different.
When saying either of those words, first the tongue moves down from the top of the mouth, then you say a vowel, and the difference between them is at the back of the mouth where you can't see. Then you have the "n" which is the same in both words.
You can't for example tell the difference between "nine" and "ten" by lip reading, and often either could be equally likely in the context.
That is called running a business.
And we cant have that now can we. Unless you can pay off the legislature to protect your business.
This country was created on little ventures like this, squelching them due to others paying to keep them out of the market seals our fate as a nation.
Which is free in the same way that sending a Western Union transfer reference to someone is free. You still need to get the money to and from the Bitcoin exchange.
In London, they are registered with Transport for London as a minicab company. Taxi drivers are unhappy with them their because only taxi companies are allowed to have meters. Minicabs (a cheaper licence) are supposed to quote the price of the journey in advance and charge that amount regardless of how long it takes them.
Addison Lee, the largest minicab company in London, has an app that is a bit like Uber's. However the difference is that when you enter the details of where you are, and where you want to go, it shows you the price of the journey on the screen, and if you press the "accept" button, that is what you will get charged. They generally seem to be cheaper than Uber and get you to your destination quicker.
Your cost in this situation is either $0 (the marginal cost of taking the friend, as you are doing the journey anyway), or $3, your friend's share of the cost.
If you have the technology to go mine an asteroid, i dont think any country on this planet will be able to take it from you. And if they try, just "accidentally" drop some of what you mined on them.
They may take issue with some things that you do or say but that's not the same thing as being overtly hostile.
Most of them take issue with our very way of life. We are 'too free' for them. They use the UN as a back door way, via treaties, to try to bring us to their level.
But then, your call for nuking of the place doesn't exactly paint you as a particularly smart individual, so you probably still wont get this.
it would have got rid of the problem once and for all. If you haven't noticed, anytime you leave 'survivors' in war, it comes back to bite you in the ass, eventually.,
While i agree most everything would die out, i still think that we as a species would make it 10 years or so. ( this is approx ) Locally of course that wouldn't be the case and you would see mass death, but i think a few would hang on a while using some extreme methods.
Could we make it long enough for things to improve then slowly repopulate/rebuild? There is always a chance, but not a great one.
This of course assumes we are not already colonizing mars or something, with the ability to come back at some point. Then at least the concept of mankind would survive.
If America had just allowed free trade with Cuba the inflow of US culture into the country would've long turned it into a pro-US state
There is no evidence to support this. Its just your belief. History shows that few countries are 'usa friendly' just because we send money to them. As a rule, most countries with differing political and social polices tend to be hostile to us, regardless of our fiscal polices with them.
Tho i agree it was short sighted, we should have simply leveled the place and took over the land for our own use ( after the radiation had cleared ). Let them serve as an example for future generations.
Us Android users get the feature 'back'.. ( yes i know technically none of us really had the feature. It was a loophole that Google didnt bother to close, until recently.
I still dont understand why they gave this feature to iOS users instead of *their own platform*
Having relied on 3rd party voip products until they cut off XMPP, this is good.
