As long as the "details of electricity" don't include a video, we're good.
Typhoon class submarines (the Dmitri Donskoi belongs to this class) are not supposed to fire missiles from underwater. They are supposed to break the ice pack to launch their payload. So, this is either a very interesting evolution, or bad reporting.
Not true. They can surface (if they need to break the ice), but don't have to.
Opera's focus on following standards often comes back to bite it in the ass.
FWIW, I have my own fully validated pages that fail to render correctly on Opera.
That's because the other browsers aren't victims of browser sniffing the way Opera is. Most of the time you can simply mask as Firefox, and it "magically" starts working.
Granted that is a problem, but not the one for the weather.com example I posted.
I'd love to use Opera more, but every version (including 10) seems to suffer from rendering issues that are often readily apparent on major websites that don't seem to affect any other browser. I don't know whether its the browser or the website, but either way they dissuade me from continued use of Opera. Checkout the weekend view http://www.weather.com/weather/weekend/USIL0225?from=36hr_topnav_undeclared for example.
if you want to make them stop, you'll have to bring your own, separate lawsuit, with all the costs and hassles that entails.
So I doubt they're will be many "the Author's Guild doesn't represent me" lawsuits, or if there is, the judges will toss them quickly, citing the valid legal status of class action lawsuits.
I think that's the important point here. As a small author if you don't opt out you may see some small monetary benefit. If you opt out, you'll see no benefit and realistically won't be able to gain anything from Google. You're too small to negotiate anything useful with Google (they'll probably just remove all references to your work) and its also not worth suing Google on your own (you'd probably eventually just get grouped into another class action).
maintenance on the F-22 is vastly more expensive than on an F-15 or F16.
Apples to apples, the F22 costs only slightly more than the F15 per flying hour (on the order of $20k vs. $17k).
Why? The F35 is more useful in any fight we are likely to get into during the lifetime of these airplanes.
The F22 can do what the F35 can just as the F15 can do what the F16 can.
F-35 Flyaway Unit Cost
FY2011: $124.580 million (24 per year)
F-22 Flyaway Unit Cost
FY2007: $136.826 million (20 per year)
A bird in the hand is better than 2 in the bush. I'd bet F35 ends up costing just as much as F22.
Give me more F22s and fewer F35s.
There's an ambiguity between "I'm clicking this to drag the window" vs. "I'm clicking this to change the active tab"
Actually, its more of an ambiguity with "I'm clicking to activate the window" vs. "I'm clicking this to change the active tab"
