I wonder if there is verbiage in consumer's contracts that allow them to end it early with no fee due to an adverse change, similar to cell phones. People outside of the 6 month or 1 year promo pricing who are still in the 2 year contract might benefit from this.
2008 quarters minted - 2,438,200,000 - source 2008 dollar coins minted - 464,480,000 - source Granted, the amount of minted dollar coins is roughly only 20% of what the quarter mintage is, and then you have to add in pennies dimes and nickels, they are still minted in a large amount. Americans just simply refuse to use coins.
What relevance does the interviewer's age have to do with your job termination? Would it have been a perfectly acceptable question if a 65 year old lady had asked you?
The problem is you are doing something that is "cool" and "hip". To get better money, you need to do some nasty programming work that there isn't a glut of other people to fill in when you want more pay.
At least for the World Events, this missing achievement was added at some point after the last go round of christmas, and it requires you to do a few things during christmas festival. I am sure he will get it done the day christmas festival starts. Not sure whats up with the one extra PVP achievement though.
Wish I had mod points today...
Why would I go to the public library when I have a wifi enabled laptop, and the mcdonalds with free wifi is much much closer?
Ah, I didn't see that you were replying to an AC. I can't stand the new discussion system.
No, that's exactly the opposite of what he is saying.
Amen. If people weren't so willing to believe the shit they have been brainwashed with from birth (more money on education CLEARLY means a better education, everyone NEEDS a college degree, buying a house ASAP is ESSENTIAL to being a good American - All of the following lead to massive debt early in life), they would have more flexibility in telling their employer to pack sand when they pull some bullshit, regardless of there being 10 people waiting in line for your job, or none.
If you would bother to do a little bit of looking first, you would see that FIOS is not available in NEARLY all cities.
If I got fired for being on vacation that was approved, I wouldn't really want to work there anyhow. Employees now are way too willing to work on their vacations. Take the vacation and leave the computer, turn off the company cell phone.
plainwhitetoast recommends an article in La Repubblica.it — in Italian, Google translation here. According to Italian lawyer Andrea Monti, an expert on copyright and Internet law, the new Italian copyright law would authorize users to publish and freely share copyrighted music (p2p included). The new law, already approved by both legislative houses, indeed says that one is allowed to publish freely, through the Internet, free of charge, images and music at low resolution or "degraded," for scientific or educational use, and only when such use is not for profit. As Monti says in the interview, those who wrote it didn't realize that the word "degraded" is technical, with a very precise meaning, which includes MP3s, which are compressed with an algorithm that ensures a quality loss. The law will be effective after the appropriate decree of the ministry, and will probably have an impact on pending p2p judicial cases.
