If you are planning on building *in* a city, you will disrupt whatever space you choose to develop - up *or* down. If a lot is vacant, would it not be available for building in either direction? There are certain areas where a large amount of *up* is not an option (proximity to airport or public monuments, etc.), and those where *down* will be cost prohibitive (flood plains, bedrock, etc.). But, if you can use your available space in without resulting in public eyesore, why would someone care if it's above ground or below?
Funny. According to the guideline listed in your signature, you were NOT being funny. You were being snarky...
New punctuation: "~" at the end of a line to indicate 'Snarky'.
Little bit of "A", little bit of "B"...
Love your sig - My other computer *was* a Data General AViiON (circa 1992/1993)
Unless I'm mistaken, Reuters, American Press, Canadian Press and other news service agencies have been providing location/date/time/etc. information coupled with photos via their distribution service since at least 1994. Newspapers and magazines have been storing photos WITH location/date/time information since before that.
It shouldn't be too difficult to prove prior art - just look to the arts!
Apple is a computer maker that has had the ability to display digital images on an attached display for over 25 years.
I wonder when this patent was issued - after all, how long has Kodak been displaying digital images on an attached display?
As others have indicated - the qualifier changes the standard answer.
I chose "6-10" to cover all of my "salary/hourly" roles before becoming an independent UNIX consultant a few years back.
In my case, I always have one Windows computer and one UNIX or Linux computer at my desk.
At work, I manage UNIX / Linux servers in several data centres. All of the productivity applications that I use live in the Windows space.
I've adapted to the point where I primarily use putty and cygwin from the Windows computer. Having said that, when it comes to testing HA or DR solutions, having available hardware within arms reach is invaluable.
At home, I have a Windows computer for gaming and web surfing, and a UNIX computer for mucking about.
Just be careful that you don't jump to conclusions...
