One bug (https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=237623) is that, in an unstable network, sometime download will fail silently on half way. Firefox will not check file size and just think it has finished, so you have to do your own checking to make sure file is indeed complete. This bug has been there since 2004, and still not resolved. I remember quite a few other bugs which was also reported years ago and never was resolved.
In Germany there is this town which has the long tradition of turning into Chinese during the week of carnival:

Would they sell the special chewing gum and soda drinks which are currently only available inside Google?
Or like Inception: It will be really hard to go to the 3rd layer to do something, as one click takes months to respond.
I agree. With a programming E-Book, one can easily search (at least on a computer) the material. One can also get errata updates easier. The best thing is that you can copy/paste the code directly from the e-book.
If I find out I need to read some chapters from time to time I just print it out. The local printing store can do it for you nicely on double sided page. I know there are 'book on demand' or 'print on demand' services as well.
My engineering friend did a final year project on that. Having some plants (I forgot what kind, but they are all grass tall) will be much better. I remember there is an optimal height for plant to be able to lock moisture, and the leaves must be able to cover the soil. Of course you have to water them. This way not only are you dissipating heat, you also reduce greenhouse gas.
Google Calc stopped supporting IE6 for a while now, but my college can still access it to fill in informations. So there is no need to panic, most stuff should still work for a while.
Google Translate was abused several times in Taiwan. The most famous one was during the Asia Games, when one Taiwanese player got disqualified due to the already examined equipment. People used the translation suggestion link to submit false translations. When translating 'Koreans are ****' in Chinese to Korean and back it becomes "Actually we won".
Not sure about Linux, but in Windows Command Prompt I can't copy & paste conveniently.
I have to right click the mouse to select 'paste'.
And when I want to copy, I need to right click and select 'mark' and then mark the areas, then press Enter.
I wonder if I missed something obvious, because if there is some hot keys I can save a lot of time.
The show first starts with a slice-of-life story and some philosophical discussion about life in space. It however will gradually have more actions in the latter half. So skip the fillers (Ninja on Moon) and watch a few more episodes.
I've heard a similar small test before. I remember it goes like this: give the kids a candy each, then tell them if they can keep it for another hour, they get to get a second one. I am sure I would keep it, since I don't like candies.
And an individual is also working on HTML6:
It's a mix of JSON and SXML:
The author also explains why unicode characters are used instead of the xml angle brackets.
It's quite funny, a must read.
Build a system that even a fool can use and only a fool will want to use it.
