Mark Zuckerberg seems to have turned down a $2bn offer for his facebook social networking website.
Has it really been two years?
I've been in Australia for nearly two years now - one studying, one working for an Aussie hosting company. One of the best experiences in my life... I couldn't write long enough to do the story justice so I won't.
Just thought I'd leave myself a note about a very well articulated discussion about ID. Samjam and "|/|/|||" had one of the most rational arguments I've ever seen on Slashdot. Wish I had mod points.
Samjam: I'm sorry your words are wasted on a lot of people here, solely because you appear to be pro-ID and that'll get you ignored at best.
"|/|/|||": You're in the majority here, no sympathy for you!
Requires a little knowledge of old comedy but this nugget deserves another read: http://politics.slashdot.org/comments.pl?sid=137203&cid=11466450
Nothing too fantastic - I've been driving for a while and have been exceptionally lucky for the amount of driving I've done. Only have run over one small animal, avoided several others.
But I managed to nail a deer tonight, head on.
Got on the meme train and tried the latest popular test:
eXpressive: 1/10 * This MAY be something to work on. Maybe.
You are a RPYT--Reserved Practical Physical Taker. This makes you a Stoic.
Just a quick question for ya'll - does anyone visit web sites with a minimal amount of bias? And has decent amount of information?
I'm just getting a little sick of trying to find information but only getting one side of the story. I was looking up some drug information online and found a number of websites listing plain facts - perfect, exactly what I want.
I was on a nostalgia trip a few days back and ended up reading a few months worth of journals from 2001. Nothing really noteable except one phrase a good friend told me - always change a losing game.
Much like everyone else, I've gone through my rough patches. While the past 9 months could have been worse, there've been several 'opportunities' (I'll try being positive about them) for personal growth that I never did anything about.
Nothing too strenuous, mostly a call for vague comments/tips about an Apache problem I have.
A few months back I decided I wanted to launch a sort of Slashdot-esque news and resources for teachers website. Mostly just to scratch an itch of my own, I decided to use Slash.
I haven't done anything requiring 'sponsoring' for about 10 years now but I think this will be pretty cool.
The World Wildlife Foundation does a yearly "Climb the CN Tower" event and some friends of mine encouraged me to join. I have to admit, I joined for a very selfish reason - how many people can say they climbed the CN Tower? 1,776 steps.
Alternate title: When rejection is good news.
I applied to several Teachers Colleges in Ontario last December and got all my notices today - all rejections. With average-ish grades and below-average experience, there was a slim chance of finding a spot. Especially when the demand for teachers is going up but no (ok, ONE) Teachers Colleges being built or expanded in Ontario. Very competitive.
We can defeat gravity. The problem is the paperwork involved.
