20 years ago, a hijacker would change the route to a different country. Now, he'd change it to the side of a building.
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
You prefer things that less than 1% of the population even know about, and a hundredth of a percent of those people care about those features.
And yet, Android's global market share is over 80%.
Take your used motor oil and batteries (I'm assuming you're speaking of the automotive type) to your local auto-parts store. They will accept both (and, in the case of batteries, quote you a price for the new battery that includes you returning the old one). Oil collections are free, not sure about batteries, though I suspect it'd be free since they'd make cash selling back the lead.
I'm still waiting for Milo, that stupid Peter Molyneux never delivers!
Now here is an explanation of why that study is simply worthless, why that "60%" number is meaningless, and how, even if it was absolutely correct, it would mean 56 circumcisions would be necessary to prevent a single case of HIV infection, and it would still fail to prevent another case -- whereas giving everyone condoms instead would have prevented both cases.
Speaking of epidemics, there is that HIV epidemic in Africa. And how does the Gates Foundation help? By promoting male genital mutilation, aka circumcision -- which is damn well proven to be completely useless to prevent HIV infections.
You've got to be kidding me. I've been further even more decided to use even go need to do look more as anyone can. Can you really be far even as decided half as much to use go wish for that? My guess is that when one really been far even as decided once to use even go want, it is then that he has really been far even as decided to use even go want to do look more like. It's just common sense.
A dead language, no?
I think the AC was talking about the globe forming process, which is generally done with a vacuum (sucking the molten glass into the form)...
Let's see, in the past year I've had... 2 dead CFLs (1 year old), four dead LED bulbs (flickering, globe failures, etc). Don't try to tell me my TCO is a win. No doubt you'll assert I'm "holding it wrong" or some other retarded result of your confirmation bias.
I'm curious as to what type of fixture you had these these were installed. It's unfortunately not common-knowledge enough, but they aren't meant for enclosed fixtures (and the boxes / packaging *does* state this). I didn't know this until my bathroom fixture kept killing CFL's, and then an LED. I finally read the package of the LED and noticed the "no enclosed fixtures" warning.
In my case, I swapped out the fixture for one that looked nearly the same, but was open at the top (the glass shade hung down about an inch, or so, from its base) and haven't had an issue since.
Not like that stopped Apple before.
"Schadenfreude", German for "harm-joy", is pleasure derived from the misfortunes of others. And that's what I feel when I see Microsoft finally slipping. I surely don't have to list all the shit they've done before, but in this specific case: their trojan horse Stephen Elop destroyed Nokia from the inside. He killed the most successful mobile platform ever (Symbian), and the one that had the most future potential (MeeGo), to push the Windows shit that no one wanted -- all for the benefit of an external party, not the one who had hired him. (how the fuck was he not sued for breach of fiduciary duty yet?)
By all means, Microsoft, keep trying! Keep wasting money on a project without future. I hope I'll live to see you crash and burn at last.
The condescending My Docs, My Music, et al should also go.
WHY?! This actually teaches / encourages people to store their documents / pictures / music in *one spot*, which makes things much more simple to back up. Granted, not every user actually uses these folders for their intended purposes (I recall backing up a ~120GB "My Documents" folder becuase the user threw *all* files, picutres / music / videos / documents into it, with *no* sub-folders to sort everything, for example)...
