Although this is overdoing it allot I think the state of many americans are long overdue for some nanny state control. When other parts of the world are dying of hunger, americans are dying of fat.

But I'll agree this is just silly.

And I wonder what this means.
from the article: "each individual addition of salt"
is that 1 salt molecule ?

Hehe, this is an ongoing dispute.
I agree with you on many levels, the big problem now is our currency... I hope to get as much power out of the hands of Icelandic politicians as possible. I trust the bureaucrats in Brussels more than politicians.

The best idea I've heard recently is for Sweden,Iceland,Norway,Denmark,Faroe Islands,Finland and Greenland to form a new coalition.

Combined we would be one of the 10th largest economy in the world, coming before Russia even.

Abstaining from voting is not an expression of anything but lazyness.

Showing up and handing in unfilled ballot is an expression of opinion - and sends out a message.

The message is to people thinking about running that there is room for new people and to the people in charge that they are not doing a good enough job.

Shutting down the computer at random intervals is just evil.

Yes I downloaded the RC client - no, I didn't read the fine print, Yes I have the full version - No, I don't have time to reinstall everything.

Going on vacation in a week - Need my desktop computer running so I can remote into it without any foreseeable problems.

Thought I had until June to do a clean install.

Although someone posted this:
which sounds promising but of course they should have an official way to do this.

No official way to upgrade + random restarts + surprising fineprint = evil.
