You missed at least one option, the options the drivers argued.

(packing for shipping) or (packing for distribution)

Clearly the drivers do not pack.

The canning, processing, preserving, freezing, drying, marketing, storing, packing for shipment [right here is where the employer needed a comma to win] or distribution

Actually. It is complicated. You don't know enough to know that and that makes you dangerous if you were a DBA.
Schemas, OLAP, speed, how to write queries so you actually get the results you were expecting and not some subset.......

Anyone that voted you up either did not think about it or is equally as dangerous.

I KNOW you misunderstand how fracking works. Do you even know what potable water is? Why would there be any need to put potable water into the earth?

Fracking involves pumping a chemical mixture (which is mostly water) with 3-12 chemicals and quartz sand. Or something to that effect.
The rest of your post is not based on knowledge of the fracking industry....just BS. I am not saying you are wrong on it all.

How your post ends up with a 5 score shows the ignorance of the Slashdot crowd as a whole.

Comment Poor application of metrics - I want choice! (Score 1) 857

A regular business user might not use it. Home users the same (I use it less as a home user)

System Admins use it. I have way to many items to pin to the taskbar and it is hard to find stuff on the desktop.

Regular business + Home users probably account for 95% + of the audience so system admins and the rest are screwed?

It is not like most of us can just go and use another OS. *****What is the problem with offering choice?******

A bit loose and fast with the numbers you be. If someone lived near police departments and fire departments they should. The point should be that those transmissions are also a concern.

Wi-fi transmit/receive hubs operation in the thousand watt range and are not required to be tested for spurious emissions or defected units by the manufacturer because they are marketed below the 1 Watt range. Once they are out there they are not tested either.

Spurious emissions could mean 20 watts being transmitted in close proximity to many people within the school. So there is room to be concerned for both.

People can be put in different groups when it comes to organizing because that is the way their brains work. Some people need to organize some things one way but other things another way.

The windows 7 menu is better for me >90% of the time....but the other 10% is a real pain. For others it might be better 60% of the time.....

Some of the people will be please all the time. Some will be pleased some of the time. Some will be pleased less.

It sucks that MS did not recognize the bigger picture.

Negatory good buddy, FTA:
“Even a cursory review of the law would show that the Legislature took the time to insert a preamble into the statute showing that it is specifically aimed at organized crime prosecutions,”

So, no he will not win easily......he likely will not even win.
