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.

"Solar is dead. Most of the US doesn't get enough sun to make solar feasible. "

Apparently I have been hallucinating all the sun in the Southern US States. Who knew that coulds could be so bright and shiny? Who knew that cloudiness would make me so sun... sorry, cloud-burned?

Wow. I have been learned good.
