who had just engaged in a conspiracy to defraud the pension plans of half of the country. He wouldn't be charged much less extradited. What a country!

Well I am certainly happy that there was bipartisan support for the performing arts. Clearly this is the biggest performance art project in the history of this country.
Add to this that the Fed's policy of Quantitative Easing (basically printing more money and devaluing the currency) made it even easier to repay the loans and you have the basis for real anger.
You'd just send stuff via "rail mail".
Bought it using a B of A credit card. Hey Bank of America -- ITS FOR SALE!!
How do you know this? I note that comcast.net is reporting on the wikileaks story: http://www.comcast.net/articles/news-general/20101205/WikiLeaks/. In doing a search I find that "comcast blocking wikileaks" has but one meaningful result and that is a person referring to your post.
You would have thought that before releasing this critter Google would have googled it.
Many moons ago I was a kid who saw his first computer in college -- an IBM 360. I went full tilt nerd. By the time classes started I was working the hell desk at the computer center. I got there early and didn't leave till 3am. By the second year of undergrad study I was taking graduate classes in 360 assembly language and working on the Fortran compiler I/O routines for what we called mini computers (the size of a stand up fridge with "4096 twenty four bit words of core storage"). Shit we were using paper tape and punch cards.
I screwed off all my other classes. Hell, even my comp sci prof's were nuts, I got a 0.0 gpa in one class because the prof went nuts, tried to kill the head of the datacenter, and was locked in a white room unable to give grades. At the end of semester 4 I had a gpa of 0.16/4.00 and was the lead programmer in a successful project to redo the university's accounting setup from Autocoder into COBOL.
Then I got the word....VIETNAM. I had one summer term to get my grades up or go see exotic foreign lands. I say fuck football, the prospect of being shot will broaden your horizons.
Forty years later I'm looking at a 2:00 a.m. conclusion to upgrading 3 linux desktops. I run a small linux based hosting company, but disappear every summer to run a 90' commercial fishing boat in Alaska for 4+ months.
The threat of being shot works best when it comes to producing "cool nerds".
A bit of time with the Google reveals Red Hat Enterprise Healthcare Platform which likely is the reason for this being included.
A quick review of the literature shows that several hospital software vendors have been converting their offering to run on a RHL backend.
That's likely where the main open source offerings will appear, replacing mainframes with cheap linux server solutions, and some database apps.
Intel announced today that it was investing $7bln to build new manufacturing facilities in the US to manufacture these chips.
The new facilities will be built at existing manufacturing plants in New Mexico, Oregon, and Arizona. Intel is estimating 7,000 new jobs will be created. BizJournals.com
The book How to Solve It by G. Polya is a
classic must read. While it was given to me by one of math
professors in undergraduate school it should not be over the heads of
advanced high school students.
