You missed the point of my post . See my reply to dinkypoo.
We were all Physics nerds so I guess that is close enough
The rules give the game structure. The human element knows when to adjust them. All in all far more fun than a computer
Clear rules are what makes a good game. It's really frustrating to play a game where "you make it up as you go along"
D&D was awesome as a 20-year-old and its far more fun having people rather then computers to interact with.
My 19 year old daughter is doing a course in Industrial Design. She has a highend macbook (retina display , all ssd), Samsung Note tablet and Fedoera 19 PC which is shared with me. Her time on device is Notebook , PC then MacBook. The tablet is mostly used the consume media and drawing, the PC for when she wants a big monitor or needs to write or print sonethind and the Mac for Adobe products.
Clearly the tablet is a useful device that serves a reasonable fraction of her needs.
AbiWord and AbiCollab have been providing a free real-time document collaboration service in the cloud for 4 years.
Because where I live you sell to the grid at 8 cents per KWHr (which is actually higher than the wholesale price) and buy from the grid at 25 cents per KWHr. Germany is already in trouble because Solar PV has pushed prices down below zero during peak solar production. ie The intermittent nature of solar is already making the technology hit its limits even though the total agregate solar production integrated over a year in Germany is less than 5% (I think). You beat this with local storage.
While this all great Science, actually solar panels are already cheap enough in many parts of the world. Certainly they are in Australia since we have no tariffs on imported Chinese panels. What is really needed for greater market penetration is cheap storage. It would be great to have a around ~20 KWHr of storage for ~$2000 - $4000. Said storage needs to be stable over around 7000 cycles (20 years of operation) and provide of the order of 4 KW of power on demand. With this in place residential PV systems could provide over 20% of demand in many parts of the world.
A few weeks ago the ISEOF board (The Institute for Energy and Our Future that facilitates The Oil Drum), Euan, Super G, JoulesBurn, and Myself, met to discuss the future of The Oil Drum. A discussion we have had several times in the last year, due to scarcity of new content caused by a dwindling number of contributors. Despite our best efforts to fill this gap we have not been able to significantly improve the flow of high quality articles. Because of this and the high expense of running the site, the board has unanimously decided that the best course of action is to convert the site to a static archive of previously published material as of 31st July 2013. We will continue to post articles up to this date. Afterwards any articles will be held as a public archive into the foreseeable future, so that others can continue to learn from the breadth and depth of knowledge published by our many authors, over the 8+ history of this remarkable volunteer effort.

But it (mostly) works...
There is a revolutionary idea called "tacking" that enables just this! This technology may have some use yet!
Open iTunes. Go to Apps. Select the app with the data or docs you want to load/unload. Drag and drop from target window.
Gp to iTunes. Download 'Dropbox'. Open Dropbox. Profit?
Thanks for pointing that out. I had not yet discovered it myself. (My GF has an ipad provided from her work.)
That is a really non-intuitive processes designed to prevent users from actually doing what they want. Why can't we just drag and drop from a folder like every other GUI? (including OSX)
I totally agree with GP. If Apple wants to improve the IOS experience they should get rid of the propriety crap and provide easy ways for people to use their devices as they want.
Actually the cost for a bulk purchase of solar panels is currently around $0.50 per peak watt. In California with its high insolation, solar power comes out at much less than half that price per KWhr hence the idea behind Solar City, Elan Musks' latest venture. He can make a killing selling electricity from his solar-powered chargers at 0.49%/KWhr to the grid and use them as a marketing gimmick to promote sales of $90K autos. Either way he's ahead. This a brilliant move.
My Nexus 4 bluetooth works perfectly for playing music and making phone calls. I haven't tried other uses of bluetooth though.
Can visio export to pdf format? If so just use pdflatex and include the pdf's directly in your doc. It will all scale nicely too.
Coz I browse with the ad-block plugin with Firefox.
Makes the web a whole lot more enjoyable.
BTW here is a fun trick. Trying posting a message about Ad-Block on facebook. It will get blocked.
Next try the most direct method you can think of to tell your friends to try ad-block on facebook. See what gets allowed.....
Clearly FB has algorithms that censor posts. It is fun to see what really annoys them though
