You are now: drunk. Go home.
I can definitely see Facebook disappearing. I've reached the point where the vast majority of my facebook friends aren't people I even remotely know. I've unsubscribed from everyone's newsfeed. Only thing I use it for is to RSVP for events and say "Happy birthday!" on people's birthdays.
glasses that give me information at all times
That will be awesome. A pint glass that displays FULL, HALF-FULL, EMPTY status. Two words: game changer.
It's old and hasn't been updated in forever, but it's clean, simple, and fast. Faster than any other reader I've tried (such as RSS Owl or Liferea).
Something along the lines of Eye of the Beholder (or Legend of Grimrock, for a more current example) would work fantastically.
It's funny you mention those two examples. I was actually thinking of those.
Mod this guy up. I don't find there to be much variety in tablet/phone gaming at the moment. It's just many (mostly mediocre) variations on 2 or 3 different game types. I find this surprising since so many of the games that were on the Super Nintendo or Genesis would seem to work perfectly on such a platform (as they did on handhelds). Where are all the tile-based RPGs?
Appears that he still has his backpack by the way he's holding his arm.
Was it the Force Unleashed that basically killed them off? I've only played #1, but lost interest with it after only a short time. I heard #2 was worse than #1.
If 1313 or whatever was by the same team would it really be all that different in quality?
It's the distro with the largest user base and I'd assume the most active forums, which is a helpful thing when you have questions.
No, I don't think it follows that strenuous denial of a thing is tantamount to secret tacit acceptance. That's like saying Richard Dawkins is secretly a theist because he's so vocal about not being one.
The real reason to question the sincerity of the denial by these billionaires is the stated aim: "We exist to help donors promote liberty which we understand to be limited government, personal responsibility, and free enterprise." They don't exist to promote science. They don't exist to even promote facts. They exist to promote a goal, and if facts and science interfere with said goal, they are to be cast aside. I consider myself to be mostly conservative and somewhat libertarian, but it seems that liberty minded people have trouble dealing with anything that is a global problem. A problem of such scope necessarily requires top down policy that is anathema to people who don't want to see any policy much less one with global aims. Because the solution to a global problem is unpalatable the response of such people is to deny the problem. It doesn't really matter that the issue is global warming. It may as well be an extinction level asteroid headed for central Africa. It's problematic nature would be denied until it can no longer be denied with one's own eyes (a point we appear to be reaching with global warming).
First off, I wasn't advised to do a BIOS update. I was updating the BIOS just to have an updated BIOS. In the middle of the update process the laptop power cut out. I was pretty certain that I had bricked it. I called Toshiba and they agreed that yes I had bricked it. There was nothing to be done they said except buy a new motherboard for the laptop which is about the same price as buying a new laptop. I didn't accept that as a final answer.
After some panicked googling I came across info on an "emergency" way to flash the BIOS. It involved having the BIOS file on a thumbdrive and pressing some key combo on boot up. That worked, which was great. What really tees me off is that Toshiba support didn't tell me about this alternative way to flash the BIOS. I doubt that they were unaware of it.
Getting a DVD on Saturday is one of the things I look forward to.
I've heard this complaint before that JSTOR is greedy. Can anyone put some numbers to this? In one article I saw it said that MIT paid $50k a year for access to JSTOR. $50k from an institution like MIT? That to me seems like nothing.
According to Wikipedia, Mitnick took a plea.
But to dig through the rulings in different jurisdictions over a long period of time, without electronic access is at best problematic.
So how does Westlaw do it?
