Comment Your spouse is the most important (Score 1) 1146

Your marriage will work, so long as both of you remember this one, simple fact:

Your spouse's happiness is more important than your own.

If you both work hard to make the other happy, then both of you will have a wonderful marriage. Seriously--it is that simple. It doesn't matter if you are a jock, or not; or if she is a submissive cheerleader, or not. What matters is that you are happy. Period.
Good luck in the future with your marriage!

XHTML has the additional advantage that it is text, and even if 50 years from now, nobody remembers how to render XHTML, they can get the content by reading the file in a text editor.

Also, don't forget that ODF is really little more than XML files zipped together in a single container. Try unzipping an ODF or ODS file—you will find several XML files for formatting, content, etc in there. Personally, I would prefer XHTML or XML files to PDF, simply because I can use vi to read them, if I had to.

I use eeebuntu as well on my EEE 1000. I'm normally not a big *buntu fan, but this has exceeded all of my expectations. It took a little bit of fiddling to get my hotkeys to work, but that would be true of any laptop on any distro.

Works a darnsight better than that crap Xandros bastardization they OEM'ed it with!

Submission + - Man charged $28,000 for using Slingbox (theregister.co.uk)

pmbasehore writes: "While waiting for his cruise ship to depart, a man decided to use his AT&T wireless card and Slingbox account to watch the Bears vs. Lions football game. When he got his bill, he was slammed with $28,067.31 in "International Roaming" charges, even though he never left American soil. The bill was finally dropped to $290.65, but only after the media got involved."

that beats azian cars! Problem is: they do not exist...

Shouldn't that be Japanese cars? Honda, Toyota, Lexus, Mazda, Mitsubishi are all Japanese. And German cars come pretty close. BMW, Audi, Volkswagen, Mercedes all make petty reliable cars.

You forgot Isuzu.

Asian (Non-Japanese) cars, like Kia, Fuqi, Hyundai, Nanjing, Deely, and DengFeng are, for the most part, fairly unreliable.

Japanese cars != Asian cars.
