I support the change for the most part. I could care less whether most envelopes arrive on Saturday or the following Monday. However, I am worried it may affect my Netflix DVD subscription turnaround time. Paying the same flat monthly rate but receiving fewer DVDs per month effectively increases the price per DVD.
Another poor choice of ranges. The first problem is the ranges overlap: a GPA of 3.5 falls both in the 3.0-3.5 and 3.5-4.0 range. Second, a cumulative 4.0 is a significantly better achievement than a 3.x, and thus should not be lumped into the same range.
The ranges should be:
GPA >= 4.0
4.0 > GPA >= 3.5
3.5 > GPA >= 3.0
3.0 > GPA >= 2.5
2.5 > GPA >= 2.0
2.0 > GPA
This is why there needs to be a Score:6 category.
There is already a movie (using the term loosely) about the Titanic II from 2010. Spoiler Alert: Both the ship and the movie sank.
MPAA ruled out their first choice, so they use the closest synonyms they could find:
I think what most Database authors do is that they put bogus data entries into their database and if they can find their entries in someone elses database, they can show that it's a copy rather then a independent work.
These are commonly called 'copyright traps' or 'fictitious entries'
I'm not familiar with the laws surrounding the flying of model aircraft, but I suspect there will be some threshold when these 'toys' are prevalent and powerful (ie. potentially destructive) enough that the FAA will start heavily regulating them, possibly requiring licensing of both aircraft and operator.
I do get one piece of insight from this near-repost of the previous article. Now that everyone has had a couple of weeks to stew on the subject, the comments are much better--both funnier and more insightful--this time around.
