I have a somewhat bulky idea on how to increase the difficulty of taking the hardware. Basically a retractable cable attached to the belt and the phone. If the cable is long enough you do not need to remove it to use the phone.

If you start the offline installer and don't respond to any of the prompts you should be able to find a directory containg an installer in msi format in c:\users\$username\AppData\LocalLow\Sun\Java.

After you copy the referenced directory somewhere you can cancel the installer. Now that you have a msi file you can use Group Policy, or psexec, or something else to deliver your java update.

An added bonus is that I also do not seem to have the Java updater installed.

Perhaps if Mastercard and Visa hadn't allowed PaypaI to usurp what they could very well have done themselves, long ago, they wouldn't be in this situation. I've always wanted the ability to painlessly send someone money, directly, and it's idiotic that paypaI (and other 3rd party wallet services) are the only way to do it. Completely redundant.

Have you heard of popmoney? They have a tab inside my online banking page.

I think the answer to your question lies on pages 36 and 38 of the Ohio Digest of Motor Vehicle Laws Handbook, It also seems to agree with AdrianKemp.

Left Turn
The driver of a vehicle intending to turn left Is required to yield the right-of-way to any vehicle approaching from the opposite direction. Prior to engaging a left-hand turn, the driver must wait for oncoming traffic to clear the intersection. One may advance into the intersection as a prelude to turning, provided that no other traffic control devices prohibit this action.

A driver must stop Before entering an intersection if there is not sufficient space on other side to accommodate the vehicle. The law applies whether or not a traffic signal gives the driver a right to proceed.


+Pool Would Let New Yorkers Go River Swimming 133

cylonlover writes "Three young entrepreneurs have proposed a way of getting New Yorkers into the Hudson, East and/or Bronx Rivers. It's called the +Pool (Plus Pool) — a public swimming pool that would float in the river, allowing people to swim in filtered river water. River water would flow into the pool through permeable walls, which would be composed of three layers filtering out the river nasties."

Slackware 8.1-stable is released! :-)

Fri Sep 21 15:01:21 PDT 2001
Started new -current directory. For now, this will be used to hold upgrades to
Slackware 8.0, starting with KDE-2.2.1. I used the long package name format
that's been used in the Slackware ports (name-version-arch-build.tgz) and
which will be the default format in slackware-next.

Have fun!

Windows will not hit the ten year mark until October 25th 2011. How close to ten years old do you want?

journalists like Glenn Beck

I think Glenn Beck might disagree with that statement.

GLENN: Now remember, I'm not a journalist. They always make fun of me: Glenn Beck, he's a pseudojournalist. No, I'm not a journalist. I never claimed to be a journalist. I am an opinion person.

Maps are free? Where, pray tell, do you acquire these free maps?

at the Franklin County Engineers office. I also have had good luck finding Free maps at the first rest stop in a state after you cross the line.

The state of Ohio also prints a point of interest database.

I can't remember the exact text I saw on a dell, but here is a link that gives a little more information.

On the laptop I was trying to troubleshoot the universal power adapter would not charge the battery with the laptop off and would halt on boot with a message stating that the battery would not charge because the power supply could not be identified. After hitting F1 the computer would boot but the battery would not charge.
