Re: much of the information on Wikipedia is “distorted”...
I, for one, can't wait to write the article about why Ivanova was the real hero of Babylon 5.

I have the Y01 variant as well. I take it from the 2-4 week replacement estimate that Nvidia has plenty of backstock on hand. Which is good news for us, but not a great sign when it comes to sales data.
Biscuits look a tad off, and that gravy is an abomination. Best way to do it is simply drive to pretty much any diner in the Mississippi Delta. Red-eye gravy is better, and none of that cheese and cream. Milk, flour, and grease is all you need. And a ton of pepper.
In my experience, a diner either makes good hash browns or good biscuits and gravy. Never had both good in the same place.
You can do cloud back-up to Google, but when I replaced my phone I still had to re-enter user names and passwords for the phone and all of the apps on my device.
Looks like a much cheaper (as in cut-rate) version of the Prius C model.
there's still plenty of free range out west.
It rules out a lot of wildlife/livestock management applications. If you are in visual range of a herd, there's no need to send a drone to look for them...
The FAA already shut down a drone beer delivery service last year in Wisconsin. They were making deliveries of local brew to ice fishing shacks.
At least in US railroads (the old-school, slow kind) tracks are connected to ties which sit on a gravel surface.The design accounts for bot contraction and expansion of the tracks and ground movement (frost heave, water causing softening/swelling, etc). So far as I know, maglev and monorails also account fore movement of the track and ground. They need some flex.
As long as the user approves the update that disables auto updates they should be fine.
iOS 8 is "the biggest iOS release ever." That should provide sufficient CYA.
WE NEED BIGGER TOYS!
Batman Begins ... Christian Bale ... inception ... Leonardo DiCaprio
So they are getting around to introducing what every classroom management software on the market has had for years? Thanks.
And I am pretty sure that at my University, I can't use it. We have our own system with pretty tough privacy protections for our students (and you have to go through our legal department if you want to see anything, instead of trusting Google to protect your students' privacy).
Slater supplied the equipment and set the conditions where the monkey took the picture. Sounds like Work for Hire to me.
They have been wasting their money on research and development. Putting it towards lobbyists and campaign contributions might have gotten them the contract.
I will continue to run a copy of XP for old games. But aside from Steam, it does not need to talk to anyone on the internet.
I do plan on making a disc image today with all the patches released in case I do need to restore in the future.
Making it almost exactly 99 Rhode Islands.
"120,000 square miles, making it equal in size to the British Isles – which, for you stateside readers who may be unfamiliar with that geographical designation, encompasses both Great Britain and Ireland"
Or in American Standard units, The Size of New Mexico.
...so they hype the internet cafe angle. The local papers reported this more properly as a crackdown on illegal gambling. The practice of renting computers is still perfectly legal (there are some places near Ohio State that students can use, most of them in copy shops instead of coffee shops) and will not be altered by the law.
I played this on the Portland Public Schools mainframe in the early 80s. I recall it used a lot of paper.
We could always build a few of these at Hanford as Waste Disposal Units (that inadvertently generate electricity as a by-product).
Having been “designed for conversion”, and conversion having proved far more expensive than we expected, do we have any comeback against those companies that did the design?
Comeback with a sandwich?
To remove the review from Yelp and prevent the reviewer from repeating the claims in other sites until after the case is heard.
Generally you have to prove malicious intent and a reckless disregard for the truth. But as the reviewer accused the contractor of a criminal act, the courts will assume malicious intent, and place the burden on the reviewer to prove their side.
This case isn't as grey as many online review challenges because the accusation of a crime is a provable fact and not an opinion. Had the reviewer stuck to her opinion of the quality and scope of the work, then they would be legally protected, and winning a suit (and a pre-suit injunction) would be difficult.
I like Amanda Palmer, but I was with the musicians on this one. I applaud creating new business models, but it's got to be all business. Asking professionals to play for token amounts when work is hard enough to come by is not a sustainable business model, especially when everyone knows you took in a decent pile of cash to meet expenses before the tour even gets started.
And to be fair, Asus is still managing to make the Google Nexus 7 for the same price as a Kindle Fire HD.
If you look at Asus' own current line-up, a TF700 with the 1.6 GHz T3 and 32 GB storage lists for $499 with $150 for the dock. On Amazon or Newegg, they can be had for $488. The screen on the TF700 is a 1920x1200 Super IPS (increased brightness) which looks f-ing amazing.
Something is driving up the cost if Asus is selling lower spec for more money. Granted, the Tegra 3 could be a newer model (but the TF700 is using the current top of the line) and it will have more RAM. Storage appears to be the same as the current crop of Asus Android tablets starting at 32 GB.
Vendors have indicated that MS is charging about $85 for a Windows RT license, which would account for the higher price. except you are still giving up the excellent screen on the TF700. So it is not unreasonable to at least let them share the blame.
Australia is the only place on Earth that makes west Texas look safe.
Yeah, brown recluse have a nasty bite but not dangerous as in a threat to a healthy adult. I've been bitten, and took the better part of a year to fully heal, but didn't cause so much as a fever. This is another spider that is thankfully not aggressive. They are common hose spiders in places (NE Arkansas among others) but seldom bite. I owe mine to brushing against a bunch of webs when restoring a car that had been sitting for a few years.
While the Sony has some nice features, the added $100 for the 32 GB version puts it way over some solid offerings by Asus. You get the choice of the 16GB Sony at the same price as the 32 GB TF300, where it wins on features but has more limited app storage, or the 32 GB version for the same price as the TF700 with its faster processor and better screen. A smaller price bump for the extra 16GB would make it more attractive (does it really come anywhere near $100 to add 16 GB storage?).
"Exists" =/= "On store shelves." The hardware that was showed off can be had now running either Android or Windows. The missing piece is Windows 8/RT.
Pegatron has been announced as the manufacturer. The Surface RT specs look surprisingly close to their current lineup of Tegra 3 tablets, and Asus even demo'ed their own Windows RT and Windows 8 tablets recently. Sure, the case is new and the keyboard on the Tegra model is a novelty, but the hardware in this case isn't a boardroom fantasy: it is a high-end version of current technology (perhaps a bit dated once it hits shelves) made to showcase Windows 8's two versions.
"Libraries of Congress"
Should be "Library of Congresses" as there is just the one library (and Congress almost never stops by to read anymore).
A group of teenagers arrive at a secluded cabin for a post-graduation night of drinking and debauchery in the woods.
No one dies. They talk about stupid things, listen to awful music, and alternately cry, hug, and argue about inconsequential stuff. The beer is watery crap and everyone ends up puking and passing out.
The captain of the football team awakes the next morning...next to a naked, ugly...girl? Guy? (camera fades to black)

After a particularly nasty Ohio winter, I developed a treatment for "Parallel Parking on Ice."
Life With Archie No. 16
I'm sure he would do a faithful and sensitive handling of the source material.
Clowns on Vespas, Capsules on Harleys. Imagine the chase scenes with Danny Elfman's reinterpretation of "Yakety Sax" playing in the background..
...as a 90-minute Michael Bay action/adventure. Shia LaBeouf will star as Half-cock Jack. Bjork will make a surprise appearance as Eliza. Enoch Root will be a CGI alien using leftover Jar Jar Binks footage redubbed with a courtly English accent.
Possible female leads: Kristen Stewart as Kei and Bjork in a stunningly tragic portrayal of Kaori.
How about a big-screen version of "Barbary Coast" starring Will Smith and Kevin Kline?
I'm currently trying to line up funding for a musical based on the Third Reich. Working title is "Springtime for Hitler." I'm in talks with Nicolas Cage to play the lead and Kristen Stewart in her first all-singing role as Eva Braun.
Yes...but I added I've upped the bad to unfilmable levels.
A live-action remake of Akira with adult, white actors in the role of young Japanese teenagers. Perhaps Keanu Reeves as Tetsuo and Micholas Cage as Kaneda? Surprisingly, Michael Bay will not direct. Lars Von Trier will be at the helm.
I would rather read the original text, so having that option is nice. I can live without the illustrations, as I have the movies for that.
According to the Pottermore site, the complete set in English (US) costs $57.54 and is a 14,830 KB download. The same set in English (GB) is $61.34 for a 8,820 KB file.
