Your continuing guesswork is close.
I'm actually one of the ones who has an ulcer with an unknown cause, I take pantoprazole every day and I'm fine.
I was diagnosed using the standard urea breath test, which is around 97% accurate.
I have no A. Pylori, but if I did, I would be off the meds right now, instead having to take them indefinitely.
Why not? We already have hundreds of channels of "high def" cable TV that's usually 480p and so compressed that it looks like hammered sh**. It'll probably look better on a cell phone where fine detail can't be picked up.
Off is actually equivalent to block but ask. There are some (probably safe) scripted pdfs here if you want to clicky-clicky:
Just imagine how much healthier our Republic would be if, instead of 60% socialists, 20% democrats and 20% republicans, the ratio was 30% democrats, 30% republicans, 30% libertarians, and 10% socialists
There, fixed it for ya.
Anonymous like a newspapers source. Anonymous like a whistleblower.
If I want to alert people that I think/know something illegal or immoral is being done I shouldn't be required to put my neck on the block to do it.
Now if I want to testify against them to get them punished in court sure but until that point why must I open myself up to physical danger in order to let people know about injustices.
I must be in one of the wrong futures.
>>>We need to respect our constitution, even if it makes our security agencies do a little more work.
We all need to learn their techniques. The future war won't be fought with guns, but with computer spying and hacking. We need to become like "augur" in Earth: Final Conflict.
That is then indeed unfortunate for that barely 1% of the media that is used for such a purpose. OK maybe not any more with CD-R (also used for own photos), but for cassette that was the case.
And besides that the radio station where I used to volunteer could still buy tapes without the levy. We really used quite some for interviews and other recordings. So it was/is possible to get a waiver on the levy.
The Bible is a pretty good book, actually. Well written (no duh, a million monkeys and a few thousand years...) and quite entertaining in some parts. It also gives a good guideline what to do and what not to do in your life. In general, the stories tell of people doing "good" things and being rewarded and people doing "bad" things and being punished (let's ignore Hiob and similar stuff that makes God look like a total bastard).
And it should be read as such: A book that inspires you to do "moral" things. And I'm not talking about who you shag and where and how. Don't bother me with the petty crap. The ideals of the Bible (especially the stuff about Jesus) are truely a good idea to make the world a bit better.
Jesus was a pretty cool guy (provided he existed, please no discussion about it, it's definitly not important), and he set a pretty decent example of a truely good, honest, moral and very likable person. A true role model. Probably unattainable, but the perfect model of a truely and absolutely "good" person.
Just please ignore all the miracles and the ascent to heaven and the rubbish. If you believe in him, do you really want this guy to be worshipped like a God? Does he in any of his actions or words tell you that it's a good idea to worship him or to praise him? Be like him and you got way more accomplished!
But I guess that's more work than just groveling.
For heaven's sake, it's 2009, why the hell do I have to friggin compile every damn piece of software that isn't in a repository? Windows figured this out decades ago, if you're compiling it into a binary, why do you need to compile it in the first place?
Granted, that last statement shows a little ignorance of the way Linux works, but seriously, why hasn't the Linux community come up with a simple install script/storage container that packs all the dirty stuff into one neat little package for easy distribution?
There's one born every minute and I'm not referring to you, I'm referring to the person who modded this drivel up.
Writing as someone who used to work for a Linux distributor (Turbolinux), we spent all kinds of time adding new programs to the downloadable, non-core repository. The likelihood that if you encounter a program that isn't available in a precompiled RPM (and whatever it is in the Debian world) means that it more than likely needs a bit of TLC to make work.
That's not Linux' fault.
If you have a binary RPM that doesn't work it isn't any different than a source package that doesn't compile and as important, it isn't any different than the "DLL hell" that many Microsoft Windows users experience.
When I got my shiny new AT&T Unix PC, EOLed as it was, the first two major apps I put on it were Emacs 18 and Icon. Emacs 18 was some Assembly required and needed some assembly language patching of the startup code. Didn't take me very long despite being largely clueless about m68k assembly and Unix System V/R2 calling conventions when I started. Icon (the functional programming language designed by Dr. Griswold, RIP) which I purchased as source code on 5 1/4 FAT floppy disks, compiled and installed without a hitch.
I mention this only to illustrate that the good folks who manage Linux distros have typical background experience.
If a generally available in source software package isn't available on your distro, a note to the distro maintainers would more than likely have it available in short order. The exception being when it's junk code and can't be compiled without non-trivial fixes, in which case it's hopeless without serious technical skill anyway.
If Google used this 'news' to help their stock prices or increase sales, id call it fraud. And they might too.
That is the best description for a bad comic I've seen in a while. Nice!
