In winter, we sometimes tried to make an antenna out of snow drifts. No, not very good performance, but the tubes sure glowed a pretty color.
A 9v battery and steel wool is a winner also. If I had to build a survival kit for long-term use, I would have these items in it. And paperclips. And a solar charger for a USB battery. Among all the other stuff, like a magnesium firestarter as a backup.
Most FM Radios uses a 10.7MHz IF, so 10.7 MHz up or down on the tuning dial you had a chance of interfering with a station. Both radios would have to be virtually unshielded.
AM radios typically used 455kHz. Just as much fun.
Actually, my first Android phone, a G1, is my TV remote. Keeping it plugged in all the time except when I'm watching TV is a pain, and the battery now lasts about long enough for an evening of TV.
It's running Cyanogen and a lameass remote app that can learn my wacko RCA TV, the Centurylink set top, H-K receiver, and CD player.
That might have been stiction. Seagate had the worst problems with stiction, but Maxtor also had significant problems, and no doubt every manufacturer until they changed lubricants. Moving from larger to smaller platters and running at higher temps were the factors leading to lubricant breakdown and essentially gluing the heads to the platters.
I also had some Seagate drives that wouldn't start, or would stop seeking reliably, and cooling them would prevent the failure mode at higher temps. I had some wicked long IDE and power cables to let me put a failing drive in a freezer and copy data. Fun times.
Solving more than one problem there, eh?
I'm betting if it were legal to grow, He would STILL BE SHOOTING AT POTENTIAL THIEVES, dumass.
Yup. You're more likely to be at shot at by the crazy guy in the red house growing weed in the basement while you ski past his backyard than by his end users.
No, you were always those things. Tequila just enhanced your abilities, it did not create them.
So, lay me get this straight...
These mood enhancers, psychotropics, antidepressants, etc., they also affect our decision making, so they change our social behavior, sometimes in interesting or even difficult-to-accept-readily ways.
And they could be used to make people more socially tolerant, or acceptable, or just kinder, easier to get along with.
And we're well along in the process of nationalizing healthcare in America.
So it's not unreasonable to expect that if things keep going the way they seem to be going, we will one day rely on a government hired and paid physician or practitioner for our primary care provider, and they will be advising us on which medications we may or may not need, or would be beneficial.
And that government provider would be just as likely to favor treatments that their employer recommended as our current provider may, since our current provider is essentially paid by our insurer.
So in the future we could be getting government-recommended healthcare.
What could go wrong with that?
So LAAs are nearly standard in IPv6 land?
Token-Ring rules again. Bow and be humbled.
"Almost none, except for companies that have been grandfathered in from the beginning of the Internet."
Almost one is an actual value. Better expressed as 'some'.

And has no one ever heard of accidents in paper mills? Since like forever?
Sad that there is no Sarah O'Connor character in the Terminator series. Fanbois world over will go insane ignoring the two characters that differ, and this reporter will wonder what the heck is the big deal about? But she's already getting that, some people never learn.
I dated a girl named Maggie for a while, sweet girl. I never, never played anything by Rod Stewart within her hearing. Nothing. Ever.
Wasn't it Alan Hunter, MTV VJ, that registered mtv.com and fit into a bit of a fight over it with the network?
So defining cybersquatting as owning domain names that you don't use is ok?
What about domains you have sites up for, though no one visits them? Or domains that you even maintain sites for, but no one visits?
How about very few visits, of family and friends?
You don't want to go down that road, or contested domain names will go to the 'best use', inevitably being whoever or whatever can get the most 'value'. Or has some claim that is unenforceable otherwise. Or tells a better story.
