you aren't "sirius," are you? for your pretense about basic astronomy, you don't seem to understand the concept of the celestial sphere.
Why the article sounded as if you can only see it in the Southern Hemisphere?
it doesn't. it just says this it's a southern hemisphere star. this refers to the celestial equator, not "where you are on Earth."

I've been using Flashblock for years. who hasn't?
the hell is Esper? IRCnet? Quakenet?
okay. this is about par for the course for Slashdot these days, I guess.
In Mozilla/Firebox-based browsers, Flashblock has been doing this for years. I've always used a combination of flashblock+noscript for this purpose.
I tried SeaMonkey quite a while back, having become overly annoyed at Firefox's increasing bloat and other antics (the inevitable feature creep trend of randomly changing around UI elements to no obvious benefit, for one.) it's essentially just what Netscape was to Navigator, or what Mozilla was to Phoenix/Thunderbird/Firefox. I think it's just as bloated and obnoxious on the whole.
there are plenty of lighter-weight Firefox forks without all the crud. I've enjoyed Pale Moon quite a bit. there are similar alternatives for Chrome users as well, such as Comodo (but it's proprietary.)
you're trying (poorly) to troll, but for those who actually are curious, no, you should not do anything of the sort. you should use a proper password hashing framework which makes use of hash functions actually intended for use with authentication systems, such as phpass.
the SHA-family of hashes are not password hashing functions. and the idea of applying rainbow tables to a modern password hashing algorithm with adjustable cost and proper salting is so silly that I can't even laugh.
pretty much every cable ISP in the United States I can think of does this, as well.
why would Google make it onto the test when EPB doesn't? this obviously has naught to do with "fastest ISPs," whatever that would even mean. really they mean residential "broadband" access speeds over international common carriers.
sadly, they would probably include Google among this list just for political reasons.
How about having NO ONE control them?
are you.. retarded?
not posting as "AC" because no one cares--myself included. you could be right. or perhaps Rogers just really wishes they hadn't the misfortune of being born in an utter shit-hole.
