My Thoughts Exactly.
How is AOL still hanging on? (Grandparents notwithstanding)
"...on the patients *LEFTMOST* foot"
Are we only talking about doing this to people who can't dance?
I'm always a little leery of folks trumpeting medical ideas when they aren't capable of identifying the most basic physiological details.
Don't blame the composer...
...looks like he was trying to do something creative with his time....over 200 songs in an equal number of days? Impressive, if only for the longevity and perseverance.
But the school children? That's just sad. I'm afraid there's a chunk of the next generation who should be entirely discounted now. Baby Boomers, Gen X, Gen Y/Why, and now Gen Bing?
Hopefully my daughter is young enough to be counted amongst the generation-after-next....
@AC: Learn the Language
Uhm. No. The US does *not* have an official language. Period.
Yes, a majority of the country speaks English (or some bastardized form of it), and most of it's business is done in English. But we do not, nor have ever made it a requirement to speak English in order to function as a resident (legal or otherwise).
Also, Lester -- please don't put latino in quotes, as if it's a made-up word. There is a strong cultural distinction around here between hispanic, latino, and mexican. I'd equate this with putting African-American in quotes.
Numpties aren't always Users
Last weekend, I got a frantic call from a good friend of mine. Our old boss went out of the country, and the VM server that he assured "is working perfectly, there won't be any problems" died. It's a linux box, and my friend has no linux experience, so he asked me to take a look. Unfortunately, he didn't have physical access to the server, so I had to tag along with another tech.
It is critical to note: This guy has already spent 10+ hours PHYSICALLY in front of this server.
I got in, poked around for a little while...the server was up and running, but the switch was unplugged from the wall. Shockingly, plugging it back in and giving the server a reboot (no root access!) fixed all of their problems. I would have had it fixed in less than 5 minutes, if I hadn't assumed he could manage a standard cable-check.
10 hours, and the kid never looked at the backside of the box. It's not always the users who are the dumb ones.
Hmm...I hadn't seen that article before, but my hosted account has been strangely slow since about that time, too. The "loading bar" often freezes prompting a refresh (7-8 out of ten times).
But, cooincidence is no proof of causality.
..the rest of the verse?
I'm a sad Yank, and barely follow football (the real kind, not the American garbage)...and I can't for the life of me, figure out what the rest of the verse is!
Could someone from the other side of the pond enlighten me?
No coat to pick up; I never took it off. But nevertheless, it's the one with "dumb bloke" on the back.
Agreed. This thing reeks of "I broke my leg and hated my wheelchair. I wish my wheelchair was cooler."
Lack of back support was my first thought, too.
Plus, if this thing can't scrape the shins of children, what's the poor invalid grandmother going to do when those little hellions come over for their annual forced visitation?
Competition, not Customer
This isn't about gouging the customer. Not as far as I can tell, anyway.
FTA: "...but this time the focus is on how the operators deal with each other, and whether the current landscape provides a competitive environment to the benefit of customers."
It's about all of the big players screwing over the smaller local providers (not that I knew any existed...) when it comes to providing roaming and other sorts coverage. I highly doubt any real benefit will trickle down to us, the consumer. Unless you consider additional fees "benefits".
Sir, you better proofread your own posts before complaining garbage coming from others.
"Txt?" Can't criticize the kiddies if you do it yourself.
Also, the word you were looking for was "there" not "their."
