Just wanted to point out, he mentions that the Dell windows licenses are non-transferable. Presumably he's planning to buy retail licenses for his first generation of home-built, and those retail licenses will be transferable to the second generation.
Came here to say this. Dual screens, one rotated 90 degrees. Works great.
An annual review, besides being a great opportunity to get a raise or some additional PTO, is when you should be discussing your plans and goals with your manager. Get this straight, you are not being "forced" to move into management. You can always leave. Your manager values your contribution, and possibly they are in a bind for some management help. If that's the case, offer to take on some management tasks while they interview for a new supervisor. Particularly if this is your first five years of employment, there's nothing wrong with wanting to stay technical, and they should be open to that.
You know, this whole thing smells a little too much like "The Sting" to me. Anyone else read David Maurer's "The Big Con"?
My garmin has traffic and weather built in. The number of people interested in paying a monthly fee for a dataplan is very, very small even if it doesnt seem that way on slashdot.
Remember when they added DVD drives to computers, and everyone stopped buying DVD players? Good times.

A new NASA rocket engine, designed partly in Canada, raises the revolutionary possibility that a manned trip to Mars could take less than three months instead of two years.
It would take about 39 days to reach Mars, compared to six months by conventional rocket power.
In three paragraphs we go from 89 days to 39 days. So which is it? With that kind of difference, I'm not quite sure it would be any faster than conventional rockets.
Round trip. Less than three months round trip, 39 days each way.
Or at a minimum, test any new setting on a dosimeter to verify the exposure level. I mean that is just idiotic that they would program in a new dosage setting and not have "verify dosage with dosimeter" on the checklist.
So if you're a hacker who relies on PayPal, the not-so-subtle message is to make sure your projects steer clear of your online payment processor.
We call this the "don't sh*t where you eat" principal.
"Most of the debris consists of small plastic particles suspended at or just below the water surface, making it impossible to detect by aircraft or satellite images. "
Holes are always found - no method is 100% foolproof.
Saying "it died because it had a stupid name" is obviously overstatement, possibly nothing could have gotten it past the marketshare and mindshare that mp3 already had.
But it was and is an awful name. Something random like "7z" would have been at least neutral, as opposed to "ogg", which is viscerally a little repulsive.
