No, no, no. Not $5280. He said "half a kilometre" which is $1640.
Even if you live in the backwaters of India (redundant) you are expected to read and memorize TV Tropes before posting to Slashdot.
The truest words ever spoken on the subject were penned by Nicholas Petreley, the IT industry columnist, who opined that:
1) There should not be a "registry" or an
2) Everything needed to run $App should reside in C:\$App.
This of course would enable $App to be copied freely from machine to machine, which is probably why there is a Windows Registry.
Instead of an automatic system there should be a space capsule with a human park ranger spotter inside.
In the off-season it should be left vacant so anybody can come and live there for free.

I was looking for a cheap knockoff version of Myhrvold's $800 cookbook and found On Food and Cooking by Harold McGee, $25 hardcover. All the cooking-theory topics you mentioned are covered. Tell your SO you want it for the holidays.
Try having a kid with ASD take these tests. He completely fails the bullshit word problems. I have to read them four or five times to figure out what they want and I went.
I have yet to find a dealer that I *want* to visit. Every time I've bought a car (four times in four years) I get *argued* with when I come in for a specific feature set.
It's been like this since I bought my first car in 1990.
I want these features offered, some favorite responses.
You can add AC later (In Kansas, where six of the months of the year are >90 degrees)
You don't need four wheel drive
You don't need a high performance option, here, take the four cylinder model.
GPS? No one needs that
Adaptive cruise control? on a car with 300 HP? Why would you want that
You can always upgrade the stereo yourself, AM/FM will be fine.

If you're an uppity reporter, or a family member or friend of an uppity reporter, carry lots of hard drives and DVDs full of random 1s and 0s, so NSA, GCHQ etc. can expend resources attempting to decrypt them.
In all honesty, you should take 'E3' and replace it with 'everywhere'.
I was at a conference last week, wasn't E3 or WWDC. We hired 'Booth Ambassadors'. They were dressed fairly conservative, but had tanktops on under a light jacket. This was a computer industry conference...
I'm a big fat older nerd. However, at one point, I almost turned around and decked a guy for what he said to one of our two ladies working with us. They were professional, not meant to be alluring in anyway sexual, yet the innuendo, stupidity and what not I heard from men OF ALL AGES, even greyhaired old farts.
During a quiet point, I asked one of the ladies about the comments and asked her if 'Nerd conferences' were worse than 'regular things' and she said 'Quite honestly, and no offense, it's Men in general'.
She felt it came with the territory, but still....unacceptable.
(yes, i have three little girls, so it bothers me a lot especially since my oldest has started sending me links to Cosplay stuff saying I WANT THIS FOR HALLOWEEN)...i'm doomed.
