What really matters is the total number of units sold / by the number of times it's needed. 10s of thousands of planes at 100k a whack for something that happens to 1 or 2 of them. That's a pretty pricey usage.
Which is exactly the same as someone living in California with their mother and has no apparent political influence at all.
There are lots of rich people in the world. Most don't hire personal security. I've yet to see an entourage of folks accompany Warren Buffet into Dairy Queen when he wants a blizzard.
The worst performing school district in the state. So it doesn't surprise me they are trying just about anything. It's also a major distribution point for most of the heroin in New England.
Who is collecting these taxes? Last I knew there aren't any Federally run colleges, so how is it getting distributed? Most people can easily afford their state college and university tuitions which are already subsidized by state taxes. The people with crazy loans are those who have decided to go to a private school. In which case that was their choice. Completely unworkable with our current education system.
If you find yourself always having terrible roommates, guess what? You're the terrible roommate.
Launch some missiles at it, wait for reports to come in on N.K.s largest indoor wedding reception hall being destroyed.
This site has really gone down the crapper.
If someone ever comes up with such a thing I have the perfect name for it. MatrixX or perhaps Matlab.
As evil as they may be they were by far the easiest and most accommodating when I had to deal with my mothers accounts after her passing. All I had to do was give them the $ of her last bill to show it was me and they even gave me money back retroactive to the date of her death. TMobile on the other hand wanted to keep billing me until I had full power of attorney to cancel her account. What a nightmare they are.
The goal of IT is to keep itself employed, not actually solve a problem. Having started in Engineering and moving to IT at a Fortune 30 aerospace company it took about 2 years before I couldn't wait to get back into Engineering and out of the IT circle jerk cycle of paying more money to replace an existing system and having nobody that really understood what they were actually buying.
Very true, houses were a lot smaller back then when the typical house was a 1100 sqft ranch.
Imagine Dazed and Confused set today. Definitely wouldn't be a top 10 movie like the original. Compare those memories, or forgotten memories if you were too drunk, with those of today which would be getting achievment XYZ on a game. Really kind of sad in my opinion.
One of my favorite vacations was going out to see my Uncle who was stationed at North Bay circa 1980. Love the way you could look out the little windows and see the entire building sitting on giant springs. I can remember seeing the computer room that was roughly 75% empty because they had recently upgraded all their systems with newer equipment. We had a blast using the light pen on his radar screen to id all the planes flying around, or something like that. Was a long time ago.
The shuttle cost $10k/lb to bring things 200 miles up to the ISS. SpaceX knocks that considerably. Now lets talk about going to the moon, being able to actually mine something, and bring it back. There is nothing that values in the $1M+/lb to go and get. It's not cost effective and will be much more than 50 years until it is and there is any sort of land grab because of it. Until then the Moon is huge, and the players so limited there will be no butting heads.
