Comment Re: Owning a cat is and of itself a mental illness (Score 1) 249

You need the best cat brush, a lint roller, pack of 6 for 2 bucks at Ikea, my cat Loves rubbing against one of these, and it gets all the loose fur off, when covered in fur, peel, and presto, whole new sticky surface, I only have to start the peel, then my cat grabs the end in his mouth and rest off for me, best investment ever!

I would reverse that statement to read
"many schizophrenics suffer from homelessness"
Most have drug problems trying to combat the symptoms, nit the other way around.
You see the lies propagated in anti marijuana stories that cite " look, he's a schizophrenic because he smokes weed, when the opposite is closer to the truth, they are self medicating.

with same results, a Frankenstein-ish laptop with compromises everywhere, and usually thicker and heaver than a store bought laptop. Now the HP Stream and Tosh Chromebook2 could have been the way to go, but some have hard soldered EmmC boards, or non upgradable memory.
  Could this be done, uhhm,yah... but it will take a major manufacturer to make the base kit and still have a relatively sexy laptop.
So what we need is a great screen to start, a mother board(s) that are cheap and upgradable, extra RAM slots, and probably an M2 interface for storage, with that said, it would have to be a standard, so others can make components to fit.
I dont see this happenening as long as the main OEM's want you to buy a new laptop every 2-3 years.

really hope they get to Continue this series, they have finally got a good cast and settled into roles, Vic does a pretty good kirk, and the new Spock and Mccoy are passable, story lines are solid, and it has the "feel" of TOS, if they cant go on, we will be left with all the shitty green screen clones that look rubbish...

It melted the cable as there were impurities in its structure, this was also a test to see how much power was generated, which was quite a bit, it was to be used as a test bed for alternative power supply, but the variances in magnetic field made it rather unpredictable as to a stable-ish supply.
