No Net Neutrality for YOU! Pay EXTRA for Hulu!
I gave up on spelling corrections some time ago. I was staying at a hotel and went down the hall to get a coke. The machine had a sticker on it that read "This machine does not except cash. Credit cards only!"
The war on spelling is lost, except it!
And how many times has the traffic stop been bogus?
Your tail light is out... (It was not out and I had the wiring checked)
You were swerving in your lane... (Louisiana used this one while the state had forfeiture laws. That was until they pulled over a reporter from a Dallas TV station)
I have been stopped for doing 56 in a 55. Think about that, speedometers are not even that accurate.
I friend of mine that is a cop once told me that he could pull anyone over at any time. Why? Because there are 1000's of traffic laws and you are breaking one every time you drive. When I asked which one I was breaking as we were driving down the street he responded "You are not preceded by a man caring a red flag." Seems the law was and may still be on the books from the early 1900's.
I wish I had mod points, I would mod this up!
Did you ever see Christopher Walken in "Pulp Fiction"?
The more they try the more money they spend. The more they take away from their primary product development. The more money they loose when they fail.
Eventually they will run out of money and go out of business.
Which will be followed by "The year of the Linux Desktop"
>The documents DEMAND that the the press DESTROY SONY!
Is this a joke that whooshed over my head, or are you hopped up on something? I'm thinking it's probably the former.
Information wants to be free. Sony demands. Anthropomorphism requires.
Q: If entropy is increasing, where is it coming from?
"Uh, Tom... Tom... Actually, from now on, we're the comedy team of Ahjnudpippibod and Davis."
They've outgrown the confines of Guantanamo Bay.
Really? If you don't believe in god then you have to at least admit that your mom created you and thus endowed you with rights as a human being.

What are they going to do, install a rootkit on my computer to prevent me from downloading stuff? Who thinks up this stuff?
The documents DEMAND that the the press DESTROY SONY!
They have the loss of teeth and the development of the beak, but where did the gizzard develop? They would not have been able to loose their teeth and develop a beak without one, and birds are the only animal (That I know of) that has one.
Plus gizzards are great when fried.
That would be different based on the city and state (US)
A friend drove a cab for years and around here that is not how it works. The cab company rents the cabs to the drivers at a set amount per day. The driver can accept jobs that come in across the computer but there will be a small handling charge that is built into the price per mile printed on the side of the cab and used in the meter. If they pick up some one who flags them down or some one who calls their Cell and requests a pickup then there is no handling charge.
The friend of mine that did it treated it like a small business. He had cards made with his cell on them and kept his car immaculately clean. After the first year 90% of his calls were from customers and word of mouth. He would also give discounts to his regulars. Really the discounts were nothing more than him deducting the handling fee from the printed cost.
IThe problem with IT's reputation is that it is a cost center
Next time a manager points that out to you, ask them where it comes from. Oh look it comes from Accounting and they are a cost center as well. Oh and so is Marketing,
There are lot and lots of examples where IT was divided off the business and the department began billing all the other departments for the work preformed. In every one of those instances IT becomes one of the biggest profit centres in the company. It is amazing what happens when the IT department has to be paid for the services provided.
