Same here...I'm also the father of all girls. They dress up as princesses, just as easily as they do science experiments, assemble a PC, or do math. Being a princess and "girly" is not mutually exclusive to being smart and independent.

It's not THAT remote (my cellphone worked as of end of last year there). We tourists tend to pass through Pahoa on the way down for the tours hiking across the lava fields or taking the boats out to the old lava egress points on the ocean. Need highway 130 for that...should this lava bisect the town, it is going to hurt the volcano tourism industry significantly Pahoa also is the last place for a pitstop or some food on the way south too.

Try running Microsoft Integration services on anything other than a RHEL derivative. Same with CA, Symantec, and who knows how many other closed source software providers. They only supply binaries and instructions for Red Hat. Therefore, those of us who need to run large systems that have third party software tend to prefer Red Hat's ecosystem.

Brain off-line, please wait.
