Gerrymandering, that's become pretty popular in Wisconsin lately.
The district I work at allows teachers to retire at 55. Most of them sub or find other jobs (often part time) after that, but it is possible.
yes, yes, yes.
We have 5.5 million people in the whole state, it's not going to look like L.A. with bumper to bumper traffic. Most people are at work by 8am which also cuts down on the number of cars on the roads.
I've noticed the same thing at work (the only place I need to use IE). Things that render almost instantly in FF or Chrome take much longer in IE 9 or 10, and some of our systems like kronos don't do well at all with IE.
I agree, shitty controls (battery life, form factor, etc..) don't make for a good gaming experience.
yeah, 2-3 years seems right to me. I had an iPod that I wasn't able to update after about 2 years since ios thought the hardware was too old. We're on the 4th generation of iPods in a little less than 4 years. I don't think the 1st gen iPads can be updated to ios7.
I wish more people understood the issue as you do. I know quite a few people that are pissed that workers actually have a voice in their work conditions, pay, etc...
Geez, I have the top tier package for Dish and it's around $80 a month, what sort of options do you have?
I lost interest when I saw it requires an iPod, iPhone, or iPad.
The organization I work for has over 5,000 users and we use gmail. It has been a pretty foolproof system for us so far.
I guess these guys never heard of imaging a machine via ghost, fog, etc...

Finally, in conjunction with the release of the new Roku 3 model, the Linux-based media streaming player is getting a two-dimensional facelift, making it quicker and easier to access favorite channels and find new ones. Current Roku users, who will now begin suffering from UI-envy, will be glad to learn that Roku plans to push out a firmware update next month to many earlier models, including the Roku LT, Roku HD (model 2500R), Roku 2 HD, Roku 2 XD, Roku 2 XS, and Roku Streaming Stick. A short demo of the new 2D Roku menu system is available in this YouTube video."
sfcrazy writes "Google has announced the Open Patent Non-Assertion (OPN) Pledge. In the pledge Google says that they will not sue any user, distributor, or developer of Open Source software on specified patents, unless first attacked. Under this pledge, Google is starting off with 10 patents relating to MapReduce, a computing model for processing large data sets first developed at Google. Google says that over time they intend to expand the set of Google's patents covered by the pledge to other technologies." This is in addition to the Open Invention Network, and their general work toward reforming the patent system. The patents covered in the OPN will be free to use in Free/Open Source software for the life of the patent, even if Google should transfer ownership to another party. Read the text of the pledge. It appears that interaction with non-copyleft licenses (MIT/BSD/Apache) is a bit weird: if you create a non-free fork it appears you are no longer covered under the pledge.
Very sad story, I hope they can find some way to give her a decent life.
