What? You really want a link? What for? No one ever reads the articles...
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
No. I have FIOS for cable and internet service with NO phone service. I have a cell phone and don't need landline. I simply called them and said that I want this and this. They asked if I wanted their triple play thingie. They had a special limited time price which would have made it cheaper. I declined. No mess, no fuss.
And to add to the rediculousness, when I was flying into St Maarten's airport (the famous one that's right over the beach) last month, the whole plane was reminded that we needed to put away our phones for pictures because "we aren't in FAA airspace, so the rules don't apply here." I guess the EM spectrum is different outside the States...
What airlines have you been on? I've never been told I couldn't take pictures with my camera. Or maybe this was just a St. Maarten's thing.
Actually, Apple has an app for that.
Shhh... Slashdot is not the place for common sense.
It joke goes, "If pro is the opposite of con, what is the opposite of Progress?"
I've often wondered how stupid would an extraterrestrial civilization be to want to come to this planet?
"It's a cookbook!"
It's sort of like patenting the application of ink to paper using a pen.
NOOOOO! I have been working on this for years and just sent in my patent application for this. I was sure this would make millions when I solved the problem of the pen leaking when I had it in my front shirt pocket. At this point, the basic solution was to take a Ziploc bag and refit it to the pocket.
Shush, you! Don't ruin a good story about how the press is censored in the US.
And I love these books; "The Top Censored Stories and Media Analysis of YYYY" Um... Wait. Why are these books censored? Ah! These stories weren't censored, nobody gave a damn. Governments don't need to censor when the public is kept fat and lazy.
They're leaving. And have thanked us for all the fish.
I am so sorry I maligned you and villified you for taking a third term when we had term limits. I'll even burn my Big Gulp jug. I see the error of my ways and that error has a name; Bill de Blasio. I know you left us, just to remind us how truly awful government can be. Now that we've learned our lesson, please come back!
My work phone is turned off once I leave the office and is turned back on when I return. When my turn is up to do on-call, I only read texts from our alerting system.
I love my job, but there are limits and boundaries.
Something green? Please! Green is a fine idea. The Smart Car is more like shit. Have you seen these things on the Interstate? In the rain?
Really? You (schwit1) must be disappointed on a regular basis.
Sorry, even if Obama really wanted to change things, he's still an elected. The bureaucracy marches on and very rarely cares about the comings and goings of temporary staff, even if they are the boss.
