We have Medisoft running in Windows XP Mode under Windows 7 right now. It works like a champ. It's only compatible with XP so we waited a long time to upgrade but we finally did it with a virtual machine and Windows 7.
skade88 writes "The New York Times is reporting that the United States has started flying B-2 stealth bomber runs over South Korea as a show of force to North Korea. The bombers flew 6,500 miles to bomb a South Korean island with mock explosives. Earlier this month the U.S. Military ran mock B-52 bombing runs over the same South Korean island. The U.S. military says it shows that it can execute precision bombing runs at will with little notice needed. The U.S. also reaffirmed their commitment to protecting its allies in the region. The North Koreans have been making threats to turn South Korea into a sea of fire. North Korea has also made threats claiming they will nuke the United States' mainland."
SternisheFan points out that there is a great new panorama made from shots from the Curiosity Rover. "Sweep your gaze around Gale Crater on Mars, where NASA's Curiosity rover is currently exploring, with this 4-billion-pixel panorama stitched together from 295 images. ...The entire image stretches 90,000 by 45,000 pixels and uses pictures taken by the rover's two MastCams. The best way to enjoy it is to go into fullscreen mode and slowly soak up the scenery — from the distant high edges of the crater to the enormous and looming Mount Sharp, the rover's eventual destination."
PC Mag is providing an extremely limited set of benchmarks to rush the review out. Anandtech does a much better job here.
Many games are free to play with a microtransaction model that is totally optional. EA is a leader in trying to make microtransactions required to complete the game or acquire items. Neither Valve or Riot games allow you to buy power or require you to pay money to play games. Valve's "Engagement Ring" was a joke product that is only cosmetic. Cliffy B is full of shit in this case.
Android likely has a bigger install base than any Linux distro out there. It's extremely successful. Also, Linus decides what goes into the kernel. The rest of the OS isn't under his control but he does get to ultimately decide what goes in the kernel.
I don't think the desktop is terribly important now that mobile and tablets have exploded. The desktop isn't growing anymore. The notebook is taking over that market and tablets and smartphones are expanding like crazy. The Linux kernel owns those markets. Why give a fuck about the desktop anymore?
This is not what the campaign did. This is simple micro targeting. The campaign A/B tested appeals to voters, focused on GOTV, bought their ads intelligently (targeting tv shows their demographic watched, etc. They made sophisticated use of the Web and built many of their tools in-house.
Today I learned that old people and poor people don't use snail mail. Thanks for the lesson.
What does that have to do with the story and how can this public scandal be seen as anything other than a huge embarassment for everybody involved? There was no strategy here by any means.
It's not the media's fault. It's the "first past the post" voting system that's in place all the way from the bottom to the top. That's why there are two dominant parties. Until that's changed votes for a third party cannabalize votes that would go to one of the major party candidates and hurt their chances to be elected (see Gore, Al).
Unfortunately for them they won't be donig either.
It's because of what he offers in addition to the model. The color commentary, explanation of why things change from day to day and analysis of individual polling firms after the fact. I was paying attention to him from the start (2008 primaries on Daily Kos) and he does a great job of explaining things to the layman.
This was the case in 2010. Many progressive blogs thought the turnout numbers would be much more Democratic than they were because party ID changed so much in two years. You have to trust the poll aggregates and I believe they have learned their lesson since. Let's see if the Republican pundits and publications do the same or if they declare 2014 a sea change and the beginning of a Republican ascendency just because typically Democratice constituencies don't turn out like Republican constituencies in off-years.
Voting early is awesome in Texas and especially Travis county. We really want people to vote around here. You can vote in any of the locations for weeks ahead of the election.
