No, the key phrase is the bit you left out
"quango's who's funding & existence tends to rely on spouting it"
Sort of like Manning and the hockey stick, so I suppose that's to be expected from you.

I mean, even if Jobs wants to tell that to the court, most lawyers are smart enough not to say something that is likely to perturb the judge and make him more adversarial to their case. I've never met a judge who is unperturbed by being told how he has to handle something before he has heard the case.
If you've looked at the market, considered all the specs, and determined that a particular phone is the one that best serves your needs, you haven't followed the crowd even if you wind up buying a phone that is the most commonly bought.
You are only following the crowd if you bought a particular phone because Paris bought one too. Which seems to be more in the i[fill in the blank] crowd way of thinking.
It means with shares being that limited, 0.2% of Facebook is worth $133 million. When more shares come on the market, the value per share will drop. That why they bring in special accountants to value tightly held companies - you can't do simple maths to find the value of the company. And yes, I don't really trust the special accountants, but they are the best we can do at the moment.
The Defense budget was already cut $350 billion as part of the debt ceiling bill and stands to have another $600 billion cut when the super committee can't agree on a plan to cut $1.2 trillion to meet the release numbers for the next round.
Something in the 12-14 inch range, with a decent display, a built-in cell connect, a real keyboard, Flash support, a decent processor/memory/drive combination, and a price in the $600-$800US range.
But then again I'm guessing that rather like the unicorn, they don't exist.
minor things become larger. ... Plus it is a chance for flamers, trolls, and LULZ types to come join in the chaos. ... So it may not be as buggy as the forums make it sound.
Still I agree with your point that if you don't like the game you should move on. Sometimes even if you like the game, and it is taking too much of your time, you still need to move on. That's why I quit play it about a year ago - I didn't enjoy it.
You need a hybrid - if before date xx, keep, else check purchase record. Keeping purchase records beyond a certain time frame is likely to entangle you in PII laws.
From the way the complaints are being voiced, not sure they even went with the before xx, parameter. Might have just nuke all the stuff that could be sent for free.
Probably plenty of posers posting about stolen stuff on the public forums too.
Full disclosure: I dabbled in Kingdoms a while back but gave it up. I'm not overly fond of MMOs in the first place, and there's just something WRONG about it in a social networking environment.
but the reality is, post to a web page and you notify dozens, hundreds, thousands, or millions. Make a phone call from a mobile and you communicate with one. Yes you can setup phone trees, but that takes pre-planning, shows malice, and requires a leader against whom leverage can be applied. So there is some logic in what he is proposing.
A better idea would be to use social media to mobilize the population for self-defense and real community self-policing. The problem there is, you Brits are about 20 years ahead of us 'Merkins on the march of Progressive Fascism to the soft totalitarian communist state, so that concept is anathema to anyone in government. Although I will give the citizenry fair marks for the other night: actually engaging in just that sort of self-policing seems to have broken the cycle. A bit late so I can't grant good marks, but better late than never and if you build on it, you just might start taking the first steps away from economic stagnation, possibly even leading Europe to recovery.
and you are confusing what Windows is, with what MS was when it came out. Back then it was:
Buy a mini-computer from IBM/DEC/Wang. Sign a 5 year contract for service and support. Pay IBM to develop an accounting application for your company. Spend 6 to 9 months customizing installing and debugging the software. Repeat for changes as necessary. Cost: [classified, but rumored to start at $50,000K and known to run into the millions depending on the size of the application and length of contract].
Option 2: Buy an IBM PC, preloaded with DOS. Buy Lotus 1-2-3. Cost: $5,000-$10,000. Have your accounting staff create the spreadsheets necessary to support your business: sunk cost so it counts as free.
The software developers and their problems never really entered into the picture.
Repeatedly changing the clock in small increments so as to circumvent a programmatic method implemented to stop the abuse, yes. Just because it is simple doesn't mean it isn't a hack. In fact, if you go all the way back to the earliest definition as in "an elegant hack" the simpler and more obvious but not thought of, the better.
don't bitch at me for your own idiocy.
Whether this means just blocking the postings like a geek, or unfriending the people who send you the messages is entirely up to you. Or perhaps you should go in and remove yourself from the game settings. Because the last time I checked, I'm limited to 50 messages to people for a given session, and I sure as hell try to make sure I'm getting something back for the messages I'm sending. Which means they only go out to people who are listed in the game as playing the game.
Courts routinely exclude hearsay evidence. Unless the court deems it appropriate for Oracle to discover the document through legal means, that is what the email would be.
The argument over the email being questioned in the title is interesting. If it was in Drafts and never sent, is it actually a communication? Lots of people write drafts and toss them or greatly modify them before sending the actual communication. Moreover, if it was addressed to a bigwig and he never received it, there is no proof he actually heard the argument being presented in the email. So I'd say legally this should be excluded. While the draft gives plaintiffs cause to dig deeper in email looking for other messages similar to the draft, the draft itself is meaningless.
All that being said, I'd say the more problematic email would be the other one mentioned in the article. That one I would say does show willful intent to knowingly violate IP law, and it IS coming from someone who is both in charge and ought to know better.
should be summarily dismissed, and with prejudice: appending "Book" to another word is NOT an infringement on their Trademark, assuming their trademark should have been issued in the first place, which it probably should not have been. There could be "look and feel" issues, and there might possibly be core engine issues. Of course, given what FaceBook have tossed back into the freebie bin, that would really be getting down into the muck.
I'm surprised it's not a combined vendors sweep. Most import illegal and so grey it is almost black merchandise from Hong Kong and sell it at discounted prices to unknowing dweebs (and I'm probably being generous with the "unknowing" bit). Apple may be the devil incarnate, but this is just a case of the bad guys eating each other.
about the time he divorced his wife who was dying of cancer so he could marry a staffer.
He's still an egghead and can be interesting to listen to, but like most eggheads, is very hit or miss on ideas. The good ones are great, but the bad ones are truly horrendous. And without the restraints of being the GOP leader in the House, his hit to miss ratio has massively decreased.
you don't agree with my politics" huh?
If it isn't covered by a discovery order, it's fair game for standard email practices. And like it or not, those read like standard email requests to me, at least as far as the vendor handling the support issues is concerned. Especially the bit about deleting umpty-squat thousand "message delivery failed" error messages.
"White House Debt Reduction Plan" or possibly "White House debt ceiling plan". Neither of those produce links pointing to any actual plan. Which is rather the point which is starting to be made by reporters, and which seems to get James "pants on fire" Carney's knickers in a twist.
As for the document you found, it's part of the reason we're in the current mess. The other of course being that for the 2 years of 100% Dem control, there were neither budgets, nor increases in the debt ceiling. They could have done it then and avoided the mess now. Of course, that would have let the tax and spend cat out of the bag.
it had 22 Democrats and all Republicans supporting it. As opposed to say Reid's plan which can't even seen to garner all his Dems for support.
I'm all for cutting about 2.7 trillion from the current baseline, but Dems don't seem to want to support that, so 900bn seems a compromise.
it's the increasing frequency and the sheer audacity of those committing the fraud. Particularly unbecoming is their Eddie Murphy imitation whenever they are called on it. I'm quite certain it cost Copernicus more as a percentage of the money available to him to make his data available to Kepler than the corresponding numbers for CMU to retain the raw data for their claims.
you pretty much need to stand in front of the tanks as they roll down Main Street. For some odd reason most people aren't willing to do that. All the rest are pikers pretending to protest restrictive government, when they have no idea what truly restrictive governments are.
I've looked at pictures. I never appreciated how truly, hugely, titanically, humungous the Saturn V was until I stood looking up into one of the nozzles at Cape Canaveral one day. I think I stopped looking at it about 15 minutes later. Just the nozzle mind you, the rest of the booster took far longer.
