I live in Arizona, you insensitive clod.
In the modern world of auto-time-setting devices and instant information (google "time in new york"), there is no confusion caused by DST, certainly not economically harmful confusion.
The "minimal" energy savings, across a whole population, are still probably worth it on their own, but I agree with other posters that most of us would like light in the evening for a number of reasons (I hate shopping, but I strongly prefer keeping DST on all year round, if possible, even with a second hour added in the summer if you want). I'm in Southern Ontario (Canada, not California), and don't like the bright sun shining right through my curtains at 5:30am in June anyway.
TFA does not mention any computer files.
She provided TheDC with a photo showing the stack of file folders in a bag marked âoeevidence/property.â
I just did a crude measurement of my femur with a ruler - from hip bulge to patella, it's 22.5 inches. + another 4 inches taken up by tailbone / skinny butt behind the hip ball. I have been on planes where I didn't physically fit - my knee pushed into the hard part of a seat in front of me - had to constantly sit on an angle. Very annoying.
I don't know if it's fair to equate height requirements with obesity, in terms of arguing who should pay extra. I'm skinny. I eat well (mostly) and exercise. Maybe a few obese people have medical reasons they can't control, but I believe conventional wisdom is that most such people got that way by making bad choices (yes, in large part due to marketing and the food mass-production system in North America, but they still made those choices).
There are plenty of ways tall people already have to suffer to accommodate shorter people - door handles and kitchen counters/sinks are too low, so it's literally a pain for us to navigate a building and do the dishes. If one thinks tall people should pay extra (over double) because of needing an extra inch of forward space, then fair is fair, the airlines should design variable or configurable row depths and ensure the seat in front of you is touching their short femurs, too. Save all that wasted space in front of short people!
I think a better metric would be average body weight of a US adult. Or at least pick an age range that represents most flyers.
The best environment is one that already has the stuff for your application, so that you just cobble together calls to code written by somebody else. Perl + CPAN was the winning combination for many years. These days it seems to be Python+numpy/scipy/scikits.
Original sig is absolutely correct: (except possibly by a fringe standard of morality that someone might claim to have, but that would quickly not hold up to the scrutiny of just about anyone)
"You do not have a moral or legal right to do absolutely anything you want."
and it makes a good point. I rather like it.
The cracking time today is irrelevant. How many years until a reasonable sized quantum computer comes out that can decode it in seconds? 10? 20 at the most?

I am an intelligent person (probably like most people here), and also extremely observant by anyone's standards, and I find that the majority of the time, at least one character of the captcha is so hard to read that I have a 50% chance at best of getting it right.
How about not doing illegal things in the first place?
A lot of motivation for insiders to disclose the "sensitive" information would go away.
A compass, a paper map of Moscow and a flashlight? Is this all CIA has in its arsenal? O yeah, a semi-literate "recruitment letter".
Another detail that make it sound even more ridiculous: an FSB guy lecturing Fogle on Russian primetime news about how spying is bad. Looks like some really bad spy movie.
I think this story was created by FSB for consumption within Russia. It is possible they knew more about his activities, but they are not telling the interesting stuff and for some reason decided to disclose this "evidence" that makes people laugh.
There are 80 million BlackBerry users and growing. You don't think you can sell even a few hundred copies out of 80 million users? Even if you make 10x more money on other platforms, it never hurts to add an extra few % to your bottom line.
