Plus, it will make it extremely difficult for them to move gas trough the country.
The warning was a threat to anyone intervening.
Had Europe sucked it up and take the economic hit and did hard santion agains putie and his cronies before they moved their money, none of this wold be happening.

IN the US , we have more important things to deal with, like what the president is wearing *rolls eyes*

So it's their fault you have a sloppy financial system?
Lock on the info up with encryption is it's such a bother for you.

When it happened to me, I called the bank, 5 minutes latter my money had been returned, the was no longer attached to my account directly.
After that, when I got an email from varies companies that my CC was no longer valid, I just changed it. Never had any interruption in any service.

On a weird note, after that call, 2 weeks later a reoccurring charged on that account went through. I contacted the bank and they told be not to worry about it and to please change my number on that service. I suspect they where keeping it active to try and get more information

The CS2 versions tend to be depreciated - and I think you need to actually have a registered version to actually download them now (i.e. you need to pass some entitlement.)

Also, at least one of the packages required for video editing (I think it's Adobe Premiere Pro 2.0), doesn't work at all on Windows Vista or later. There may be a fix, but I couldn't find it offhand.

The low fat craze started when the amount of fat in the average diet started climbing.
In that context, eat less fat is absolutely correct.
Of course, every moron with a TV show paraded every other moron with a typewriter across the stage to promote their magic diet book. So that didn't help, at all.

"Restricting calories leaves you hungry,"
You're doing it wrong.

You started paying attention to what you eat(good for you) and lost weight.
This is why there is so much laymen confusion on the subject. (NYT reports a super tine study doesn't help either).
People start watching what they eat with a diet. It works, and they think it's the magic of the type of diet when it is they just found away to pay attention for a bit.
