We're having fun in Vermont and people in our town are convinced we're building a nuclear reactor up here on Sugar Mountain... I try not to straighten out the rumor mill. Besides, we're almost done.
We're just dying to try out version 2.0. Preferably 2.0.1 where they have the bugs worked out.
Is this a Windoze problem?
Macs already have this functionality built in to notifications.
The cloud is not reliable, fast, secure or universally available. Sure, in the city you think you have reliable access but even that is an illusion.
Tablets are great, for consuming content, playing games, filling out surveys with minimum text entry, taking inventory but they're no replacement for my laptop/desktop machine and the apps on tablets are very lightweight - they don't compare with real word processors, illustrator, photoshop, etc. I'm a content creator. Content creators have always been the dominant users of computers. Now we have a new device, tablets, for consumers and that's just fine and dandy but it doesn't change the fact that the content creators still use and will continue to use content creation tools which are a lot more powerful than the apps on tablets.
These employers are looking for help with a specific problem. They want to pay less than they would to a consultant so they hire an 'employee' with exactly the skill set needed. Beware that when you take this job you will be considered, like the hardware and software, to be disposable. When you are obsolete they will not retrain you, heck they didn't bother training you to begin with, but instead they'll just pink slip you and hire a younger, cheaper model with different bells and whistles.
Wow, that could backfire really nicely.
Buying direct from the farmer by the whole animal is the best price. Many of our customers buy a whole animal and then split it with others so they have less to store. A whole pig is about 160 lbs of food which is about four to five cubic-feet of freezer space and enough for a family for six months to a year typically.
Do eat it all. Head, feet, tail, organs. All good food.
By spending more money to teach a specific sex they are promoting sexism. Great. How PC.
"Either way, without antibiotics he would have been quite unlikely to survive."
Not true. Lots of people have survived far worse injuries without antibiotics both in modern times and back before antibiotics. There are many techniques for fighting infection besides antibiotics and they work.
I'm all for reducing the abuses of antibiotics so as to save them for fighting disease and I firmly agree that antibiotics are very useful and powerful tools. However, don't exaggerate. People have survived for millions of years without antibiotics even though they had far worse injuries. Antibiotics just increase the odds of survival.
"We'd lose a good portion of our cheap modern food supply because most of the meat we eat in the industrialized world is raised with the routine use of antibiotics, to fatten livestock and protect them from the conditions in which the animals are raised."
Stop buying factory farmed Produce and Meat. Buy from small farmers that don't feed antibiotics to livestock and don't use antibiotics on plants. Yes, it is a little bit more expensive than the government subsidized industrial farmed cheap food but how cheap is your life? How expensive is cancer? What is the cost of antibiotic resistance.
You make choices.
Ooo... I flipped out some politically correct neo-ecovist liberal who can't take a reality punch line so they call anything they don't like a Troll. Keep on denying - it won't do you any good in the real world.
Obviously this volcano activity is caused by global warming and is the fault of old white men in the first world nations. The penguins demand reparations now!
Don't worry. It will only burn off one testicle. The other one will be shielded by the one that gets cooked and any other dangling bits. If you hang to the left just keep your electronics in your right pocket. Butt your back pocket is better.
Here in Vermont if you 'sell' via grid-tie you're not paid, rather you get a 'credit' that you must spend before the end of the year. Then at the end of the year the power utility company 'donates' your accumulated credits to itself. Since most power is generated in the sunny months of warm weather and most power is needed during the cold winter months this means the power company comes out way ahead. All summer and fall you are accumulating power credits and then they steal them, oops, I mean donate the credits to themselves so that all winter when your system is producing little power you must buy power and can't use your accumulated summer credits.
On top of that they charge a hookup fee and a monthly fee for services, a meter reading fee (although they don't actually read meters anymore) and a energy efficiency fee and then taxes on the power you generated too.
Net metering is a sweet deal for the electric power companies.
I wish that Apple, and other companies, would create deep legacy support all the way back. Software from the Apple II should be able to run on the MacOSX and iOS. The computational power is there to do the necessary emulation.
