I have adblock.

Have you tried to use Youtube without adblock? It's broken - the page looks like garbage, and the video is about the size of a postage stamp.

I really don't know what else I am supposed to do other than completely avoid youtube, which is really hard to do :(

Comment Basic life skills (Score 1) 737

Essential - cooking, baking, bread making.

Brewing is another basic skill that produces a product that can be used for barter.

Farming / growing crops - how else will you get the grain/fruit for cooking?

Hunting - obvious one there. But the other side of that coin is butchering. How many butchers do you know?

Sewing, to repair clothes that won't be replaceable for a while.

I could go on.

Comment BES was awful (Score 2) 278

the company I worked for in 2001 - 2005 trialled BES on Windows 2000 Server and Exchange $whatever, configured especially for BES.

In that environment, BES blew goats. It constantly locked up, lost email, required reboots of the server, etc etc. The company *ran* back to GROUPWISE as a superior alternative to BES.
