Re: Usless Ligislation Thats not Enforcable for Most Businesses
Since $800,00 is less than $1,000,000 you won't have to.
That's your own fault. Do something about the SOBs rather than whinging about them.
Re: Long live...
to avoid shops setting up in Canada and Mexico, they should do what Canada does. Canada Customs (or whatever it is called now) collects taxes for the Federal and Provincial governments as product is shipped into the country. We don't, so far have sales taxes in lower jurisdictions.
I dont want internet access in my car
My frigging internet bills are big enough. download music from the cloud? whats wrong with listening to the radio or even a usb stick, or other suitable in car systems? Watch movies? Let the kids count edsels (1 ice cream for each you spot) and back seat movies are only a distraction to drivers behind them - what the heck are those kids watching? Speed control? Excuse me, but there are already enough decisions taken out of my hands for me to be happy to lose this one as well. If the cops want to catch me, let 'em get in their cars and chase me.
Re: Explicit Kill Switch
I once worked for a company that had a big red kill switch in the computer room by the door, and also beside some communications equipment that I frequently had to access. This big red kill switch was not protected by a box and I twice activated it shutting down the IBM mainframe. The boss promised me that if I did it again, I would be seeking new employment. The next time it happened I was, fortunately, at my desk. 2 days later it was covered with a transparent plastic flip-cover. The same computer room was also protected by a halon fire suppression system. The temporary hold -to-kill switch for that was on a wall approximately 20 feet from the telephone that you would have to use to reach the security center that would be able to disarm the Halon system if there were no fire.

Re: They also had to invent a new level of fire danger.
It has? In the northern hemisphere Winter started on Dec 21st-ish, so I would have thought that in the southern hemisphere that same date would herald the start of summer.

Re: 'rare and expensive helium'
It is on Earth, being mostly combined with natural gas. It requires separation before storage. The US Gov't was buying and storing it but has been selling it off for the last while. There was a story in Scientfc American about the upcoming Helium shortage.
Re: No mention of token ring?
it was - up to 80% occupance vs 20% for IP. Unfortunately IBM forgot to make it routable.

And the problem with that would be?
If they are not popular enough to stand on their own at $1.50/mo, then why should they be subsidized?
BTW, I haven't had cable for 13 years, since I moved into a house and the cable company told me I would have to pay to have the previous owners channel choices removed.
Fail for the cable providers.
Why are you so sure those errors which resulted in self-maimed bombers were accidental?
Re: I've said it before and I'll say it again....
In Canada you can apply for and may receive a pardon for a crime which you committed, and were convicted of, if after several years you have not re-offended. There is a recent case where the persons' crime was so egregious that when he applied for a pardon, the national press learned of it and the public outcry was such that it was denied.
I dont know what the situation is in the U.K, but I wouldnt be surprised if it wasnt similare.
things went missing while employees of this company were performing work in the house. Police are unable to determine which employee was responsible, therefore no criminal charges. but things still when missing.
Re: What's the point?
Is Amanfrommars back in a new guise?
Re: Duty Free at the airport anyone?
duty free at the exit from the country point is exporting the product, and may be taxable at the point of entry into another country (it certainly is when I return to Canada from the US). However, I noticed complaints about product being shipped VAT free from the Channel Islands to the UK. Why is HMC not collecting tax as these items come into the country - Revenue Canada does as product comes into Canada from outside the country - both provincial and federal sales taxes as appropriate. Probably we cannot get at the profits Amazon (or others) make when selling from outside our countries - heck, US states have that problem, but definatly Gov't Revenuers should be able to get hold of some of it.

Yes, the ones with the girls with the big boosums stretching tee-shirts with cute sayings on them.
Re: Some history
Where do you get the idea that the American gov'ts believe in free trade - Most state/county/municpal governments these days require "Buy American" as part of their infrastructure spending
Breastfeeding is not contraception
Just check the number of women who come back to work after mat leave and are pregnant again. And yes, I know that not all of them breastfed - but many do.
Re: Random adverts more desirable than tracked...
we have both. we use the dehumidifier in the summer and the humidifier in the winter. It would be nice if the weather would automatically balance the two, but unfortunately it doesn't.

Re: Swiss Neutrality ?
How were they doing that?
"Switzerland's trade was blockaded by both the Allies and by the Axis. Economic cooperation and extension of credit to the Third Reich varied according to the perceived likelihood of invasion and the availability of other trading partners. Concessions reached a peak after a crucial rail link through Vichy France was severed in 1942, leaving Switzerland completely surrounded by the Axis. "
They were surrounded on all sides by Germans or German allies. How were they able to ship AA guns to the UK. Granted they may have sold/licensed the designs, but those would not have been built with german steel unless it came from captured equipment.
Re: Did she try
Why should she make the phone call? Apple couldn't be bothered, they just went ahead and used the photo, maybe by accident, maybe on purpose. Calling them up and getting the regular fee won't remind them that they shouldn't do that sort of thing, taking a big buck out of their pocket may.

Re: So instead
1. Canada wasnt a country yet
2. There were British Regulars, Canadian Militia and First Nations involved
3. We know perfectly well that others were there, but it was largely the people who lived here that defeated the American invaders both at the Niagara frontier, in Quebec and at Fort Detroit.
We're just happy that it happened.
Re: So instead
never seen a dead bird outside my windows
Although I live in Canada (just outside Toronto) I have never seen a bird which died as a result of flying into my living room window, although I have seen many migratory birds which died as a resulf of flying into the office towers of Toronto. I have had bird feeders closer the windows than recommended in the article. The only birds that I have ever seen near the window were hummingbirds which hovered there looking in the window when their feeder was empty.
Perhaps birds in Alberta are less intelligent than those in Toronto.
Re: The greasiness of birds native to Surrey
I thought you were talking about the town of Surrey, BC - which is close to the Pacific.
Finallly, an excuse I can use to avoid working on windows :)

Re: Climate-change sceptics
Then I sincerely hope that you do not have Market Value Assessment for your property taxes. Here our taxes go up basically in lockstep with the rise in value of the homes in our neighbourhood, never mind that you have done nothing to improve the value of your house.
