Because everybody knows to whom you are referring when you say "The Pope".
This is Slashdot! At first, I thought everyone was talking about thepope! Turns out, Kurt moved into academia a while ago.
Possibly fourth: Would it not also mess up interoperability with amateur radio operators in other countries? (My father-in-law keeps trying to suck me into the dark underworld of his hobbies, especially amateur radio.)
"Republic" is almost the same word except that the people who 'represent' the governed don't have to be (but usually are) directly chosen in an election.
See, the good folks in Utah are just getting their kids ready for the day when the only election is the Forbes 400 picking a Doge with near-dictatorial power. We'll still be a Republic(tm)! And the Medicis will finally get to cash in with a reality show.
Is Apple relevant to consumers outside the U.S.? Intel is, sure. And Apple's relevant to their Chinese slave labor force. But I always figured Apple's sales were overwhelmingly to Americans.
So, the new MacBook is going to be powered by the HTC phone Verizon won't let out of the gate? I've heard rumors about Apple / VZW collusion recently, but this is ridiculous!
That you spend your entire day in an overgrown Email program speaks to your skill set more than anything else.
Switch "your skill set" to your boss's skill set, and I'll agree with everything you just said. The world's capacity for *nix coders and administrators, though arbitrarily large, is finite.
I'm a tad perplexed on how so many people think that working 11 hours a day is unprofitable. A huge amount of business owners, lawyers, MDs, scientists, freelancers do that. Are all these people so retarded they don't understand what's good for themselves?
With respect to long-term health and sanity: Maybe. But in terms of productivity, these folks still put in about eight hours on productive work and the other four on business development, recordkeeping, grant writing or other shit-work that they would love to delegate but, for various reasons, they can't.
The coach said, "You're gonna run on this track until I get tired!"
Sorry the company isn't profitable yet, I just voted to triple my salary. Looks like more unpaid overtime for you!
I don't have a Galaxy S phone. But from reading the different Android user sites, the counterpoint to your argument is that nobody's been able to develop a custom build for Galaxy S phones that works. You'll notice there's no Cyanogen ROM for the Galaxy S.
Folks are trying. But they still haven't been able to make it work.
It does not "kill" "germs" any more than other emulsifiers like lecithin or egg yolks do.
That's why I crack open a raw egg and use that to wash my hands! The first year was Hell. Non-stop diarrhea. But now, Salmonella is totally my bitch.
So the next time a crime drama wants to make up a social networking website, they won't be able to skirt the trademark holders by calling it Face Space. Now we know the real reason Fox bought Myspace.
