I am glad that you are so politically correct as not to exclude 50% of the population.
There is the pregnant man (transgendered technically).
I can't find it but there is also one case that a man (with the normal man equipment) that had a embryo implanted and was carried to term.
That way Windows update & such won't be bugging you that updates are available every time you boot.
You know you can turn off windows update? Same goes for most other software that will do its updates automatically. The rest either don't use them, complain to the developer to make it does that you can turn off auto updates, or just use the proxy or firewall to block the site that the software checks for updates with.
I agree. I would never accept the liability for data loss on any computer that a customer brought in for repair.
When I have to send a computer out for repair (normally just laptops) but it also includes towers under warranty I am not authorized to work on. I will, if it seems to be a hard drive failure, image the drive before shipping it, or if it is defidently not a hard drive issue remove the hard drive from the computer and either hold it in store or give it to the customer.
Yes, VirtualBox supports direct access. You have to edit config files to do it but it does work, but the VirtualBox team does not recommend it. They instead recommend that you use iSCSI, which VirtualBox also supports to connect to SANs directly. You also have to edit config files or use the CLI version of the VirtualBox machine setup (VBoxManage addiscsidisk), the option is not available in the GUI.
I highly doubt that ASUS hosts there website on 1and1.co.uk. Nor would they use 1and1 for their registrar. Especially when asus.com is registered with Network Solutions.
Not to mention that page seems to be the only page that the domain has on it and if try to snoop around it just redirects to uk.asus.com which is where asus.com sends you when you choose the UK for your country. If you check other countries on the asus.com landing page you will see that Asus puts there country sites on subdomains.

Agreed! The meta-moderation should be to moderate for the moderators not yet another way to moderate the comments. If they want more comments moderated give more mod points rather than repurpose another system.
There is no way you could screw up painting a wall..
you absolutely can screw up painting a wall.
Use the wrong paint (colour or base), use the wrong type of rollers or brush, don't use a seal coat so the paint just bleeds through, or my personal favorite, put oil/latex based paint over latex/oil paint without a seal coat.
If they don't like the name American, then they can call us United States of American, or... American for short.
Seriously, for the individuals that want to Nitpick about the name, there is no place called "America". There is "North America" and "South America".
No there is, it is call America or the Americas, that is both North and South America together.
I'm pretty sure that "North American" is universal understood to be someone from any country in North America.
Sure but there are only three.
This is a lovely summary of the complaints about "American" that is put to music, called "I am not American".
That being said its not that anyone has any real chance of rewriting history and/or the dictionary.
Why should synchronous writes be the default ? Programmers are already too lazy and/or stupid to add a simple fsync() where needed, why should we all drop what we're doing, make the slowest option the default, and then have to jump through hoops to make things workable again ?
Not only that, we would end up in the same position that the IE8 team was complaining about with HTML and the doctype with new developers copy-pasting.
Computers are not intelligent. They only think they are.
