The University of Wisconsin-Green Bay has come up with an unusual way of saving money: changing their email font. The school expects to use 30% less ink by switching from Arial to Century Gothic. From the article: "Diane Blohowiak is the school's director of computing. She says the new font uses about 30 percent less ink than the previous one. That could add up to real savings, since the cost of printer ink works out to about $10,000 per gallon. Blohowiak says the decision is part of the school's five-year plan to go green. She tells Wisconsin Public Radio it's great that a change that's eco-friendly also saves money."
And a ~200k UID not taking every opportunity to crow about it would be even neater.
Plus, I'd think that a 5 year-old would be able to realize that not all Anonymous Cowards are the same person. My first post in this discussion was 29606017. I am, and have been, perfectly aware of the fact that the Wii isn't sold for a loss.
Oh, and calling people asshats? Mature.
You remind me of Flawless at the Rock Band forums; a huge dickhead who manages to stay enough within the rules to avoid a ban.
And now that The Price Is Right is over, I'm going to go accomplish something today. Have fun finding someone else to argue with.
I clicked on this article, saw GP, logged in, and saw parent.
Just what I was going to say. At 60 bucks for 80+ songs, that's about* as good as you're likely to find.
*You can get 55 songs off the original Rock Band disc for $5
