The studies that show homeschooling was better were skewed badly.

Sherpas and other guides die to take people to the top of Everest so how is this any differnt?
If grinding and brewing is too tough get a super automatic espresso machine. Better long term purchase than a Keurig. Unground beans and water in and espresso out at the push of a button.
Sure it is 700-800 bucks but if you like coffee it is AWESOME (my wife and I drink a lot of coffee). The only problem is all other coffee tastes like old dishwater after you have one of these.
Bunch of papers at SC13 presented this year. Suggest sunny look them up.
Or is this just more goverment brain drain because of the sequestor?
If this is the case the number says "Contact Us" on the front page so while the rest of us understand support isn't free your typical noob probably has no clue. Not that them being jerks is justified but you should make it painfully obvious that support isn't gratis.
1985 was only 1 year after the Ma Bell breakup and while the Macintosh was out IBM still dominated the PC business. So when you look at this in the context of the times it makes sense that they would think the network and infrastructure would be closed because that was the way things were during the time period. I am glad they aren't like that though I think with AT&T reformed and Apple controlling the whole experiance things might go back to the "Ma Bell" days
FTA: He is home educated and doesn't read as well as schooled kids of his age. He hasn't had much science education and no chemistry at all. None of his parents or grandparents have chemistry education beyond the school minimum and none feel confident about teaching it.
WTF? If not one in the house is qualified and no one has more than a HS diploma how and why is this child home schooled? This can't be good for the child.
The authors stance is how can I make Apple look better so facts be damned. This is the typical Apple puff piece designed to get people to buy more Apple stock. How else do you think Apple's stock is going to hit the target of $900/share.
My guess is he came out with the "Home Version" to start scamming the general public out of cash at $1000 a pop. Likely because momentum in the commercial/industrial world has slowed as they realize this is all fakery.
Why didn't the guy just make the stack of install floppies like we used to do back in the day? Or break out his PCMCIA SCSI card (still have one along with a single speed SCSI CD)
Looks like GM filed for this patent 12/2009. Anyone have any ideas how long Nissan has been doing this and/or planning on doing this?
Can't say I blame him. If I had to deal with Wintel all day I would hate computers too. Switch to *NIX, more control, more sense, more power!
So they spent months, thousands of dollars in defense, thousands in city funds all over the fact that some drunk tool refused to tell the cop who he was?
Where are my BNC connectors and 50ohm terminators!
Seriously coax is a nightmare and like others said use the coax as a wire pull for some nice CAT6.
