If you are, then you should point your browser to Nerdiversary, a light-hearted website that uses your birthday to list upcoming timely events in your life. You can calculate your age on Venus and Mars and find out how many seconds you've been alive (hint: it's an immensely large number)."

State of Colorado Calls Firefox Insecure, IE6 Safe 530

It has been decided that Mozilla based, non-IE browsers pose a security risk.' (Original emphasis from site.) If the leading IT agency for the State is making these uneducated claims, should the people worry about their other decisions?"

Why, with all this "They'll work for cheaper" talk are most of the people in the top U.S. school's graduate programs, NOT American? I'm at Stanford right now, and most of my friends from MIT, Berkely, CMU, and here are non-americans.

Obviously there isn't pay involved (we all are getting paid the same amount). And there is no visa troubles (students are automatically granted a visa when accepted).

So, think about this when you start ranting about "stealing jobs from Americans because they work for less".

The moon may be smaller than Earth, but it's further away.
