Comment Re:Aquariums Add CO2 for plant benefits. (Score 2) 173

I've got a planted freshwater aquarium. In addition to good lighting and appropriate fertilization, people who like to keep this kind of aquarium tend to inject carbon dioxide to keep the plants growing well. The difference in plant performance in the aquarium with and without CO2 injection is substantial.

Back in the 70s (Im #$%b old) We used to grow psilocybin mushrooms in aquariums. By injecting CO2 you could get mushrooms the size of a small pizza.

Have you been paying attention to the republican plan?

1. Track Aliens
2. Put walls up at both Canada and Mexico
3. Destroy Public schools
4. More private prisons
5. Stronger drug and other sentencing to fill said prisons.
6. Bigger war machine
7. No minimum wage
8. Cut taxes for rich and business, increase tax for everyone else
9. Health care plan "Let them die"
10. Reduce voting of poor people.

These people are no longer republican, they are fascist. Yes, they are going to want to see your papers.


VirtualBox Development At a Standstill 288

jones_supa writes: Phoronix notes how it has been a long time since last hearing of any major innovations or improvements to VirtualBox, the virtual machine software managed by Oracle. This comes while VMware is improving its products on all platforms, and KVM, Xen, Virt-Manager, and related Linux virtualization technologies continue to advance as well. Is there any hope left for a revitalized VirtualBox? It has been said that there are only four paid developers left on the VirtualBox team at the company, which is not enough manpower to significantly advance such a complex piece of software. The v4.3 series has been receiving some maintenance updates during the last two years, but that's about it.

It does not have to harm your credit rating. You are right make them prove it. Look up "debt validation letter" and send them one (hurry up, you have 30 days from when they first sent you a letter) . Send it registered. Once you you have conformation they got it pull your credit report ( If they are reporting it contest it with the credit reporting agencies.

If they validate the debt on your credit report without sending you validation of the debt you can sue them.
