>. Ma Bell was an evil monopolist until their forced breakup in 1984, which it turned out, didn't help much.
Really? How are you paying $2 to $6 when everyone else in America now pays a fraction of a cent? The breakup did in fact help. You do not need to lease/rent your telephones from Ma Bell, you can add as many phones as you want and you can pick your choice of voice carriers - including free VOIP providers if their offerings fit your needs. The "videophone" is now reality and most of us bave far more data bandwidth coming jnto our homes than the "fattest" arpanet links offered. There is no way whatsoever that the breakout did not help consumers.
> These types of projects aren't likely to get publicly funded because too much of tax revenue is now required to be spent on entitlements
That depends on how you use the term "entitlement." If you are referring to social security and medicare, you're off base because people literally are entitled to those programs after having been forced to pay into them.
If you're talking welfare in its various forms (for the people who are just lazy, not those who legitimately need it), pork projects, warmongering (welfare for Haliburton, etc.) then you're right - if we slash that wasteful spending then we could easily afford to explore the solar system and maybe even investigate "warp" technologies which have been legitimately theorized to be possible but impractical given current tech. Or, we could be spending the savings on green energy or fusion, since there is no legitimate reason energy should not be free for everybody on the planet by now.
Only if your neighborhood is inside a star.
(added to adjectives) on the inside; within.
No - right of first sale.
I think you mean Windows XP Mode which is a VM appliance running inside a hypervisor. Windows XP mode is a full Windows XP installation.
"XP Compatibility Mode" is different in that it puts an app in a quasi-sandboxed environment but is not fully compatible with XP and earlier apps. What that does is fudge a few environment variables.
Microsoft needs to do a few things before they will win customers over, the biggest of which is to bring Windows XP Mode and a proper Start Menu back, and to a lesser extent the classic start menu and Windows XP Mode (installed by default to make it easier for users).
Classic Shell is a hack solution that works but it runs on top of the not-metro UI, and is something many if not most end users are either unaware of or too afraid to install.
She is best off staying on XP or moving to Win Pro. You can run Windows XP Mode on Win by hacking the bios image in VirtualBox but it is too much of a bear for
Oh and while we're at it Microsoft why the fuck.did you think.the Metro interface is a good idea on a g.d. server? (Win2k12 I am glaring at you!!!)
I use a simple solution: I simply brew less coffee when I want less. In fact I usually just brew espresso shots. mmmmmm.
Keurig creates a tremendous amount of waste and is a lot more expensive than conventional methods and that is the reason they are pushing it so hard - why sell you high quality beans in bulk when they can charge you 10x more for crappy grounds or freeze-dried coffee concentrate?
Well if the creation story is true then everybody certainly believed in him at one point, when "everybody" (according to Genesis 1-3) was comprised of two people who allegedly knew him personally. If that story is true (I'm a christian but I take Genesis 1-3 as very metaphorical) then indeed "recorded history" does include such a time. However I very much doubt it to be true. Otherwise, if a god does exist and the world was created in 4004 BC as Genesis claims (and if that account is "god-breathed"), then god is a liar due to creating the world in such a way that carbon dating shows the Earth is at least four billion years old and the fossil record indicates life has been around for hundreds of millions of years. I see no logical reason to take the creation story as literal.
Who says it has to be the same LAN?
Also: CAN can already be interrupted by infotainment systems, since some vehicles have actually used the head unit (the part of the stereo you control) as the CAN bus hub. Idiotic design.
It's certainly safer than navigating using a paper map.
I'd say that if they want the data to be publicly accessible without restriction, they should make the published journals publicly accessible without restriction.
They come from Pabst-guzzling white trash.
So, what you're saying is Microsoft designs for corner cases while alienating 99% of the userbase now. No wonder they are hemorrhaging market share lately.
Anyway, be it desktop or server, Classic Shell makes Win8/2K12 usable.
I hope that if you ever have kids (as if any self-respecting woman will let you stick your dick in her) I hope they turn out intersex and you decide to let the doctors conduct "normalization surgery" on them, then your kids grow up hating your guts because there is a 66.6667% chance you're making the wrong decision (there are three possible decisions: make them cosmetically male, cosmetically female, or leave them the fuck alone and let them decide when they're old enough to understand the implications)
XX/XY and CAH and pseudo-hermaphrodite here. My parents made the wrong decision which when I realized what it meant as a teenager I harbored anger toward my parents for years.
