My concern with this software is more about privacy protection. As of 2013 TurboTax supposedly encrypts the files on your disk, but how strong is that?
Samples of such rocks may still be in lying pristine condition on the Moon. Their DNA won't have survived due to cosmic ray bombardment, but we may still find interesting information about early life. One day we'll send a robotic surface explorer to look... I hope.
If you don't want to deal with unpleasant editors and revert wars, your best bet is to stick with obscure subjects and try to follow the house rules for style and referencing. You can accomplish quite a lot that way with very little difficulty. Editing controversial or popular articles is asking for much unpleasantness, unless that's what really you want.
Once our company forced us to stop telecommuting and come in to the office, it strongly incentivised turning off my remote devices (work pager, work cell-phone, work laptop, &c.) once I got home. If I'm spending two extra hours each day (10 hours a week) just commuting, that's enough of a commitment.
No you don't use eight lawnmowers to build a Ferrari, you use eight lawnmowers to cut eight times as much grass at once. Dumb example, Mr. Chandrasekher.
Should people be open about their mental issues then? No, people are strongly biased against it. What if you've got AIDS? Or terminal cancer? What if you want to live out your remaining days with a sense of normalcy? No Larry, you're wrong.
You mean he wasn't over there to float the Pirate bay deal? Hmm...
I'm highly embarrassed to be from the same state as this guy. My sincerest apologies everybody! Next time we'll try and elect a box of hammers instead.
Thailand: added to my list.
They'll pry that digital download from my cold, dead hands...
Alzheimers will need to be cured in the next couple of decades anyway or first world nation states will go bankrupt looking after old folks. Once the cure is available: problem solved.
No ambiguity here. No, sir.
Why the $%#&@*! does this even rate a
/. story? The rates are so minuscule that they matter not at all in the Earth's geologic story.
Is it fair to stereotype Republican goals in space as being prestige-based, whereas Democrats are more often aimed at pragmatic applications (with Kennedy being the obvious exception)? Not that there is anything wrong with either approach; they just tend to be at odds in a tight budgetary environment.
OTOH, too many contributors post ill-considered, unsourced trash that just increases the general information entropy. Bravo to those who clean out the rubbish and focus on improving quality.
