Once they are finished with their nerd cleansing, they can build a new Slashdot. A sexier Slashdot. A Slashdot the kids can dance to.
They aren't ignoring you. They are exterminating you.
To be fair, May is the only one of the three that has driven on an active volcano in the second Hilux (the production vehicle used for the Pole trip).
He even built a tire cooling system for it.
He's clearly the most qualified. Godspeed Captain Slow!
Best look at the new technet T&C that were instituted on 16 July....
The software now has gone to the more 'subscription based' model where as if you do not renew, your keys expire (Previously, unrenewed accounts did have keys expire). They've also removed some 'non enterprise' software such as Windows 7 Ultimate, Home Edition, reduced number of keys, etc etc.

Are you better off? Probably if you use it to its full extent "for testing purposes" but you won't get 5 keys unless you go Pro, I believe.
It's odd that that is how NetFlix broke out those costs.... I always believed the less expensive cost (streaming) was the value-added service... So really the correct pricing would be 2 DVD by mail for $12, streaming $3 which is the $15 it is now that I pay. The mentality that the reverse is true is truly the definition of convoluted.
But yes, I'm keeping the DVDs by mail; everyone else can have my streaming bandwidth that I wasn't using anyway, and my bill goes down $3 a month -- I'm off to get a latte!

Happy Birthday, Bill.
I'm guessing it's buried in the Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices (MUTCD).
There are quite a few rules that highway departments have to follow. About the only flexibility is the design on State and local route number signs (County Highway/State Highway) and street signs -- but not how the information is displayed (i.e. font size and proportions).
I'm sure it is the reason you don't SeE StReeT SiGNs LikE THIs... Sure, all uppercase seemed definitive and authoritative and the style of the time. I remember Chicago having all capital lettered street signs, but with the advent of GPS and me knowing where I'm going, I don't remember the last time I looked at one.
For those interested the latest MUTCD is online.... http://mutcd.fhwa.dot.gov/pdfs/2009/pdf_index.htm
Not sure what you're implying, but bacon salt (as well as their other line of products) are fully kosher without a hint of pork.... and looks like less sodium than salt per serving. The salts also have no fat.
Research! Oh wait, I forgot this is Slashdot. We don't do that sort of thing.
I've always found it a bit hypocritical to not allow more bars/pubs/dispensaries in local neighborhoods (at least in the US) because of all the NIMBYs, which makes greater chances that people go out, drink, and drive back home even slightly over the limit.
That, and if you read the arrests for people who actually cause heinous harm, they are far over the "legal limit" for it to matter anyway. I don't think the limit has been 0.16 in over 40 years, but that seems to be the magic number for accidents I've seen ("twice the legal limit").
I'd love to walk to a bar every once in a while, have a couple drinks, and walk home, but the nearest place is 2 miles away and the route is quite literally peppered with cops on the weekends, and it's getting difficult finding a different route these days.
