Wasn't that the Japanese?
This is an incredibly important point.
I worked for a few years in missile defense, and one of the big algorithms was determining *where* the inbounds were going to hit. If they were just going to splash, or hit something of no value*, we didn't bother scheduling an interceptor for them.
* "no value" is a subjective term, determined by the higher-ups.
General consensus on Groklaw is that she's sick of the whole mess and knows everyone is appealing everything, so she's just kicking it upstairs.
Would that be the definition of a WeMowatt? (Beware the sleeping lion tonight.)
Bravo, sir. You win the pun of the day award. I bow before your horrendous pun, and wish I had thought of it first.
I think we just found a use for Camp X-Ray over in Gitmo....
Duh. It's well known that the way to tell if a politician is lying is to look at his lips.
If they're moving, he's lying.
No big deal. As I noted above, I am quite willing to admit that I missed your joke as well.
It's possible that I bow to your superior quantum level of humor.
Quite possibly, but PP seemed quite serious about his response -- with two links, even!
That was the sound of the joke going over your head.

Bragging rights? And until recently, I *did* have a 5.25 floppy, but I've done some system upgrades, and haven't cleaned out my boxes of old media, etc....
and my ancient Windows 1.03 floppies. Of course, finding a 5.25" drive to read them may be a problem... I'll have to dig around in my junk box.
No, we're not going to be travelling. She just wants to be able to talk and text with friends and family, and she can no longer use her traditional phone for that.
If we were on a T-Mobile or AT&T plan, I'd just swap the SIM, but because we're VZW, I need to buy a SIM and a cheap plan.
No, she can't use a bluetooth headset. Well, actually, she can, but it would be pretty useless. She can't talk, and relies on the computer to generate voice for her.
I thought I'd be a bit more specific
My wife has ALS, and cannot use her hands, and has difficulty speaking. She uses a Tobii C15 with EyeGaze for speaking. Her computer also allows her to use it as a phone for voice (the voice output can be routed through the internal SIM) and SMS.
I appreciate all the thoughtful suggestions. Coverage is not an issue for me, as I live in Los Angeles. I may go with the T-Mobile $15 unlimited text thing. However I am reconsidering some stuff... because it's very slow for her to type with her eyes, I may need unlimited voice minutes as well, in which case, I might be better off with just a regular unimited voice/text plan.
Maybe I should start with the $15 plan, and change it if necessary.
