Spelling nazi aside, where is it that you're from where you use don't use 1 as the statistical unit of measurement for counting votes? I guess you could have 73-72, and divide by 5, but that's still a 1 unit deviation. 1/29 does carry more weight than 1/145, but either way, both are quite close. Although I'm not sure what statistical unit you were using in "14.6-14.4," but compared with "15-14," one vote is the most minimal statistical unit that can be used to express the data. The usage of staggeringly seems appropriate.

Well, I'm not a scientist in this field of study, but I wouldn't be surprised if these helped that process along.
Break ice into smaller pieces (e.g. cut huge swaths of it in half and so on), and it'll melt faster.
Same way you cut a stick of butter into smaller pieces before melting it down when cooking
You are shocked, shocked to know that patents are being used anti-competitively in a court of law.
Don't you tell me what to think now, too.
You can't tax what you can't see.
Also, for the record, I've set this up for clients for self-hosted project space, and I use it for my personal projects as well. It's installation procedure may seem a bit clunky, but it does the job well and is easily extendable. I continue to recommend it, it's excellent software and it's only getting better.
Seriously, check it out: http://gitlab.org/
Where exactly did the submission say this was for open source software? Company implies private source to me, but maybe that's just me.
Anyway, something worthy of moderation would be http://gitlab.org/
It is not so much the climate change, but the mass production from genetically manipulated plants.
So.. blame Monsanto? ^_^
One Raging Asshole Called Larry Ellison.
Lehk228 had it spot on. They tried to get away with it, and failed. Unfortunately, they usually get away with it.
If that was caused my industrial pollution in the U.S. 30-odd years ago, what can we expect from the pollution China is dishing out?
Define "server." Software? Hardware? I think that clause of the ToS is bullshit, and here's why.
If running a "server" is a violation of a ToS, then every single person that has file-sharing enabled on their Windows computer at home is liable to be disconnected. In fact, anybody that has an xbox or a media center PC is likely in violation of this clause, too. I think that the amount of bandwidth he was using was massively unreasonable, but seriously, if you're going to terminate someone, AT LEAST CALL IT WHAT IT IS. Just put a clause into the residential ToS that states that anything beyond 25-50TB in a month is unreasonable and grounds for termination. Ugh.
