And as someone who thought they'd got it right as of somewhere in 4.x and dislikes the direction 5.x is going, I wish they'd stop "improving" it. Just fix anything that ails it, stop fucking with the interface and removing features, egads. That's why I no longer even try Gnome-based distros; can't stand the giant cellphone it's become.

Interesting from a grazing efficiency standpoint. I do wonder what it does to total gut balance and mortality in the event of scours or other pathogenic processes.

But as to the nominal topic... in North America, there used to be about 20% more bison than there are cattle today. Bison mass about double what cattle do, and eat proportionately more -- therefore farted more, probably producing about twice as much methane in total. Somehow this failed to cause global warming.

Does it matter? It's not reverseable anyway. Just live further north and away from the shoreline, problem solved.

Hey, in a few thousand years the current interglacial will probably come to an end, and our descendants will be glad we heated the place up in advance.

Not going to be much fun until then, though.

agreed. Coming from Solaris to Windows, I find it horrid, just horrid. Some days, I would give my server for a workable "grep".

pipe to: where {$ -match "regex"}

Powershell has had a workable grep for a long time, but it's usually learning how objects work that typically obstruct new users.

Wow, that's elegant.

Hard to see, the dark side is. but Once you start down the dark research path, forever will it dominate your destiny, consume you it will.

Yes, but it will also make you powerfull!

Don't you know that all the great discoveries were make by monomanical megalomanical maniacs in search of greater power?
