Comment: I prefer the "Empty New Tab Page" extension (Score 3) 125

If an empty new tab page would be configurable and Chrome wouldn't exit if a single tab is open and I press Ctrl-W, I'd be perfectly happy with Chrome's tabs. For the latter, I use the "Live On" extension, which is a bit quirky, unfortunately. With Firefox I can fix both these issues, at least in about:config.

judgecorp writes "German researchers from the Fraunhover and Karlsruhe institutes have achieved 40Gbps transfers over 1km using a wireless link. The new record raises the hope that point-to-point wireless could be used instead of expensive fibers in some rural broadband applications." Partially thanks to transmitting between 200GHz and 280GHz.

Note that the Cherry G80s are available with three different types of keys: "click pressure point" (loud and clicky, preferred by most typists), "soft pressure point" (not so loud, I currently use one out of consideration for my co-workers), and "linear" (no pressure point at all, not recommended). These keys are also used by many other keyboard manufacturers.

You can act as if, but you can always go "Fuck you, cooww and shee-keeenn! Now you can't use it anymore!" if they are stupid enough to fall for it.

If an author signs a contract with another party granting an exclusive license to publish a given work, is that unenforceable?

Of course it's enforceable. The OP doesn't have a clue.

Civilization, as we know it, will end sometime this evening. See SYSNOTE tomorrow for more information.
