There's a study of the motion of stars in globular clusters being done at Yerkes Observatory: http://astro.uchicago.edu/yerk.... They have an ancient refractor with a 40 inch lens. Now refractors have long since been replaced by reflectors in serious astronomy. But they were using this telescope because it allowed precise comparisons between pictures taken now and archival plates from a century ago, necessary to determine the slight apparent displacement of those stars.
And that's why Yahoo's email is such a hit. Like this: http://www.webpronews.com/even...
FWIW, the Mayans (or perhaps the Olmecs before them) independently invented a zero as a place holder in their base 20 system. The earliest recorded use of this is (I believe) about 36 BC, which may make it older than the (East!) Indian zero-as-a-placeholder.
But this isn't a spreadsheet, and there's no reason IMO not to wrap the text like every other word processing tool does. I can see that under some circumstances, someone might prefer to run the text box on to additional pages. I can maybe even see that someone might possibly want to reduce the font size to make it fit on a single page, which is the other option. I was just astonished that wrapping was not even an option, since it's been the option in every other word processing-like program I've ever used. (Not programming code, of course, but OneNote is not intended as a programmer's editor.)
I don't think it's me. See the description here: http://office.microsoft.com/en... and notice in particular that it says "To shrink the content to make it fit the width of the specified paper size, select the Scale content to paper width check box." The only alternative seems to be to clip the content, i.e. the content does not fit the paper. To demonstrate this, create a text box in OneNote that is fairly wide (wider than you think will fit on a printed page). Type a couple lines of text in, then print out the page. By default (with shrink off), the printout will clip the right-hand side; with shrink turned on, the font size for that text box will reduce.

Like Yogi Berra said, when you see a fork, take it.
One word for you: Edsel.
I don't know anything about that church, but I know our church (in Maryland) does exactly that during the winter, along with a number of other churches in the area--each church takes a week. They drive the homeless to and from where ever they are during the day (some of the churches are out in the country), and provide breakfast.
OneNote seems to me to be one of the strangest pieces of software I've seen since MS-DOS used backslashes for directory separators. Evidence: in OneNote, if a line width won't fit on the printed page, does it wrap like every other piece of software in the known universe? No! OneNote reduces the font size, until it's unreadable even by people who don't need reading glasses. Whose idea was that?
Let me know if you find that interesting tech site. Sigh...
But I heat my water for *exactly* 71 seconds: the turntable takes 10 seconds to revolve once, and in order to have the mug wind up at the door, so it's easy to take out, I time it for a multiple of ten seconds...plus one second, because of the lag in startup of the turntable.
I just posted such a link (to "Watts Up With That?"). I think you'll find considerable science (and math) there, particularly in the blog entries. You will find some anti-science in the *comments*, but that's because (short of a handful of defamatory posts) comments are not censored, unlike some sites.
