Since according to Monty Python, someone might attack you with a banana.
and quickly became annoyed, and eventually uninstalled it. The first annoyance was that it was shilling for money, but the deal breaker was that it wanted me to sign up for facebook so it could spam other people to play the (*&(& game. It was easier to uninstall the game.
so that's a deal killer right there.
If I were to sign up for Facebook, and then do nothing more than post cat pictures, what kind of digital afterlife would I end up with, anyways?
Yeah, but they all have their money now after having fleeced various investors in the IPO.
I have a different random password for every website on which I have an account. Relatively hard to crack with brute force. The problem is that as a user, I have no idea what the website is doing under the hood - they could be storing it in cleartext for all I know. But with a different password for every website I visit, even this possibility isn't something I lose much sleep over.
And it was a bear. I ran a fever for nearly a week, and overall it took a good 2 weeks before I really felt 100%. The doctors gave me some horse pills (very large pills that were antibiotics to prevent bronchitis from turning into pneumonia) - you look at the things and wonder whether you can swallow the thing without choking.
Hmm, when the outside temperature is below zero, keeping the windows open doesn't seem like that great of a strategy.
Well, I am applying for a new patent entitled "Use of the urethra for the purpose of urination". Licensing fees will be quite reasonable, and I will sell lifetime subscriptions in order to reduce the paperwork for everyone. You will be able to send the checks to my villa in the Caymans. Or maybe bitcoins - haven't worked out the details yet.
I wish I had mod points to mod this up.
My only hope is that as schools transition to using eBooks for textbooks, that textbook publishers no longer care as much. They can create a "Texas edition" complete with Jesus on a T-Rex, and a different edition that the rest of the country can use.
Many cellphones - even if in airplane mode - still allow the GPS antenna to be used. You won't be able to download maps while in airplane mode, but if you are just using a simple app like "GPSTest" (which displays coordinates/speed), it works just fine.
If you are a government employee and you submit a paper, instead of assigning the copyright, you send them some sort of standard form informing them that since the work was done by the government, it is not copyrightable.
What is the quality of the password then?
The people going the post-doc route either hoped to become faculty at a University somewhere, or were foreign nationals who needed a green card, and the universities were the only ones willing to do the paperwork. Then again, sometimes the Universities would string the post-doc along and only put in a half-hearted effort on the green card.
Indirectly they do. Mainly because the publishers don't want to have 50 editions for all 50 states - they want one edition for the whole country( the costs of setting up a press run for a textbook are not insignificant). Texas is large enough that they can get the publishers to make the changes that Texas wants, and the rest of the states aren't sufficiently motivated or upset by this that they can prevent this from happening.
With the advent of electronic textbooks I start to wonder the extent to which this is true any more. When it is all electronic, they could theoretically add the Jesus on a T-Rex chapter for Texas, and everyone else gets the normal textbook.
Yes, but it is still cheaper than home delivery.
We are one of the digital subscribers. Usually in the morning I will pull the thing up on the tablet to see what is going on in the world..
