F^@$ I just said that, I'm doing the old angry guy thing, I've become one of them
As it is now in our tiny city I can't get any electronic components of any kind on the weekend without going to The Shack. Fry's is 70+ miles away and our local "real" electronics shop is only open 8-5 weekdays.
I suspect the market just isn't there to cater to the couple of dozen of us in town that would benefit from the kind of shop I'd like to see. The local electronics component shop really only sells to businesses, they tried to open 8-12 Saturdays but not enough people came in to pay the light bill much less the tiny hourly rate they pay the counter people. I love the options online but it's just not convenient.
How is it that the home country of the author of 1984 just doesn't get it?
Plenty of us get it. Please remember that at no point did the general population of the UK ask for, support or condone this kind of behaviour, nor most of the other dubious things we've been hearing about lately that have supposedly been done in our name or for our protection.
Unfortunately most of you/us did vote for the "political class", unless you just didn't vote and that's worse. Way too many people think their large political party of choice is going to "give them their fair share", or will make things "more equal" for this or that class. The "political class" of your major party will always make it "more equal" for the pigs, so stop perpetuating the party that want's to make things "more fair".
And, in fairness, you can ask how the home country of The Declaration of Independence and the US Constitution could also be going down the same road.
This isn't limited to the Brits.
Solar in the US will typically pay for itself in 5 years regardless of system size,...
In my 1000 square foot house I spend $1000 a year on electricity. How exactly would I pay for $15K - $20K worth of solar cells in 5 years? I spend about $620 a year on natural gas to heat and cook. I guess I could go all electric, which would cost me another $5 in appliances. At that point I might break even in 15 years, about the time I would need to replace the solar cells. By then they should be cheeper and more efficient. So yea by about 2030 solar would probably take care of my needs. Till then I'm holding out with my dead dino (plankton) power.
Can't the editors write a headline that meets the basic rules of grammar? How about "In the game of Pentago the first player can always win", or "Pentago is strongly solved".
No cause with out those grammar mistakes their would be 30 pricent fuer com-mints on
It's just you, since I don't watch Downton Abbey. Make a reference to Doctor Who and I might get it, though.
The Open Office building is actually smaller on the inside.
What do you say, lets start a campaign to get the standards and measures people to make human hair an actual measurement standard.
Firewall the microscope computer except for communication with the department file server.
Yes and we've also found a NAT works fairly well to reduce the glaring security issues when the existing firewall software is inadequate.
