As someone pointed out you have to have some idea of the project you are looking for. I have found many software projects on Freshmeat/Freecode just by going there 3 or 4 times a week. Sometimes there will be things listed that I had not given any thought to and then I see it listed there found it intriguing went to the web page and checked it out. Later on I would go back and download it because I would recall months later when the need arised it was there. Trying do that with google, what would be the search string, "New software"? Especially for us not searching for anything specific and just wanted to find new open source software in general.

I seem to recall that years and years ago Steve Ciarcia wrote a series of article in his Circuit Cellar magazine about making sensors and a home built EEG. If I recall correctly it used relatively inexpensive parts and off the shelf sensors when necessary. All designed for the hobbyist and much lower in cost. Of course I may be wrong. But still wondering, whats the big hoo haw about something this expensive?

have to agree that it is no secret, we hear about it and talk about here in Phoenix on a regular basis. Almost everyone who has lived here for any length of time has had it at least once. AS another poster pointed out it is like the bubonic plague here. Almost anyone who lived here for more than a year or two are aware that the jack rabbits here are infected with it. But mentioned it to someone from the more urbanized areas they are always taken by surprise. Must be the ultra urban snobbery.

He is not politically correct......check
He is not socially correct........check
He has opinions that many find suspect.....check
His opinion is protected as free speech......check
He is a writer that many find enjoyable to read.....check
Just because his opinions does not matches yours you will not read or view movies based upon his works? Now has anyone find this to be disturbing? Because he has opinions which differs from the current world view he needs to be shunned and ignored?
So who really has the closed mind and narrow point of view? Does it not work both way?

Oh wait no it doesn't, it only works for those with the biggest bat, so who is really the bully here?

The first thing you should do is find a good CPA, that you are comfortable with. Then sit down with him and go over what he expects from you in the way of reporting and see what he recommends for a software package. You may be surprise as I have noticed more and more CPAs are including opensource packages on their list of packages.

Has anyone actually read the Supreme's Court decision or, horrors of horrors, actually READ the law? Based upon the comments I have seen here I would have to say no. I am not a fan of the law but I have read it and also the signs in Sacaton and Koval valley area warning people of drug smugglers and human trafficers. These signs being posted by the FEDERAL government in areas well over 100 miles away from the border with Mexico. Maybe this decision will spur some action on part of the feds.

They always have an ulterior motive. Most likely they see a way to more closely monitor those who would film the police and of course of the device is destroyed or confiscated then it would make it just that much harder for the "authorities" to protect you from all of those nasty terrorists.

Your government in action.

Despite all appearances, your boss is a thinking, feeling, human being.
