One of my roommates in college was in the pharmacy program and had a *lot* of parties at our house. It quickly became clear that the they were in the program because, duh, "That's where the drugs are".
It took 8 hours and 18 minutes to warm up its systems, get a location fix, halt the spin, turn towards the sun, and, finally, point its communications antenna at Earth. Bah, I do that in 15 minutes *every* morning.
"Okay. Sure. We did A and B and C and
I use a Case Logic AUA-311 which holds (inventorying it as we speak...) a Chromebook, Nexus 7, iPod gen 4, flashlight, flash drives, magnifying glass, pen, pencil, a couple of small screwdrivers, etc. Plus a Kindle Touch when I might want to do some reading without a backlight. With all that stuff, it's still lighter than a laptop in a bag.
Universal Service is administered by the Universal Service Administrative Company (USAC) http://www.usac.org/about/.
"To implement the 1996 Telecom Act, the FCC established four programs:
- High Cost, for rural areas (transitioning into the Connect America Fund)
- Lifeline (for low-income consumers), including initiatives to expand phone service for Native Americans
- Rural Health Care
- Schools and Libraries (commonly referred to as "E-rate")
Money to pay for universal service programs comes from the universal service fund (USF). The USF is paid for by contributions from telecommunications carriers, including wireline and wireless companies, and interconnected Voice over Internet Protocol providers, including cable companies that provide voice service, based on an assessment of their interstate and international end-user revenues".
Kind of interesting how they don't explicitly state that "money to pay for universal service programs" comes from customers (it's a line item on phone bills). Actually, it used to be two line items, one for universal access (phones for the poor) and one for E-rate (Internet for schools, libraries and rural healthcare).
My dad used a wooden dowel rod or broomstick to listen to the hard-to-reach spots.
What makes them sick is knowing that their neighbor is getting $5K per year per machine and they aren't.

Nah, the adrenaline rush comes when you're napping and the car's computer has a kernel panic.
For the love of God, NO! Don't believe the post above!

The person above was KIDDING! Do not dry your baby, cat, dog, hamster, mouse, whatever, in a microwave! It will kill them!
Okay, maybe that's slightly too broad a statement. For some odd reason it works fine for drying Pekingese dogs.
"When I was fourteen, my father was so ignorant I could hardly stand to have him around. When I got to be twenty-one, I was astonished at how much he had learned in seven years."
If your car is a Prius, just hit the Park button and the car will immediately go into Neutral (even at full throttle). Other pushbutton cars may work the same way.
Yup, sounds like intimidation.
