I agree with the wikipedia entry that states "Nerd is a term that refers to an intelligent but single-minded person obsessed with a nonsocial hobby or pursuit". That would explain why Wired include the D&D book in it's nerd's list. After all, being obsessed about D&D fits that definition.
Have you considered using a place like http://www.smashwords.com/ to publish your books? I've got a Nook Color and a lot of the free/cheap books I get from B&N is from them. The only really bad think is they want a
This http://rumors.automobilemag.com/dodge-avenger-tops-list-vehicles-highest-north-american-content-39935.html says it's the Dodge Avenger with 83% American content.
Hell, 10 years ago or so, I owned a Ford Crown Vic and a Toyota Corolla and the Corolla was the "American" one.
Don't forget that there's still a lot of commercial unix in the work place. Most of those OS's don't come with python or ruby and the perl that does come with them tends to be old and not have very many useful modules already. Learn ksh/bash and you can write scripts on any modern Unix-like OS; only learn perl/ruby/python/current-flavor-of-the-day-language and you won't.
If you have FireFox or Iceweasel installed, this https://addons.mozilla.org/en-us/firefox/addon/user-agent-switcher/ seems to do a pretty good job of faking user-agents. Hell, it makes a SAP website work with Namoroka on Ubuntu 8.0.4 when the site says "Internet Explorer Only".
When I click on your link, I get redirected to the non-SSL version of the page so it might still be a subscriber-only thing.
Um, have you tried Virtual Dimension: http://virt-dimension.sourceforge.net/ ? I don't know if it works on > Vista but it has worked great for me on Windows 2000 and XP.
I got it but I'm a geek for WWII trivia. And comparing Rommel to Monty is like comparing Bill to Darl.
Um, it took me a while to figure out the joke. Then I remembered that governator's character in "Total Recall" is Douglas Quaid and I LOL.
It's not an image all, it's a calculator to tell you how big a picture you're going to get depending on type and size, etc.
You got good enough broadband to listen to WQNA online http://www.wqna.org/ ? It'd be a way to listen and get out of the heat.
I really like Blues and I'm always looking for a place to get my fix. I'll mark this one down for a listen next weekend. Thanks!
I agree. I bought my daughter a Vostro 200 with a C2D 2.0, 2 GB, DVD+-RW and 250GB drive for $400 shipped about a year ago. While it probably won't run Crysis, it does quite well with things like Half-Life 2 and Sims2 even though it's got an integrated graphics card.
Oh, and since I ordered it from the Dell Business side, the only cr@pware installed on it was the Google Desktop and Acrobat Reader.
I have a lazy eye as well and when we saw Coraline, I spent about 50% of the movie watching without the glasses. It seemed to alleviate the headache and the 3D wasn't too bad without the glasses. The old red/blue movies I could see with the glasses on and I was fine.
