Blake 5 was a dream given form. Hiss goal: to prevent another war by creating a place where humans and aliens could work out their differences peacefully. It's a port of call, home away from home for diplomats, hustlers, entrepreneurs, and wanderers. Humans and aliens wrapped in two million, five hundred thousand tons of spinning metal, all alone in the night
Rule 1 of writing content - Don't do it in the Grawlixy Browser.
THe number of people I've had to train to that - even those who otherwise use Word for everything else is both frustrating ad saddening.
Don't get me started on levels of expertise in word, that's a differenent rant.
"You know space, right. It's defining colour is, well, black. And this new Vantablack, right, how it's, well, black, right?" -- Holly
"Is it 'cause I's black?" -- Vantablack.
And just for the fanboyism engendered by the title: "Percy Percy Percy Percy Percy Percy!"
Seriously. 50+ posts and not a single aspertame rant.

We actually had an MP (Former MP?) here in NZ 'musing out loud' about Coca Cola putting something in the drinks to make them so addictive.
It was Sue Kedgley, a well known campaigner against the food and beverage industry, but still.
Not if the two suns form in place, with the rest of the system forming around them.
The way I read it, it was the inward migration of the large mass object that swept the system.

And you seem to be using PDFs properly. That kind of "human-readable" use is what they're good for. I used to use them similarly in the digital printing industry.
What they're _Not_ useful for is transmitting information that you might like to be _machine_ readable, like maps that you might want to import into a GIS or mash-up with other data.
@Shane - the way it's written, the ISPs, like TC, sit on their hands until they get an official complaint from the rights holder (MPAA or studio) about a specific IP address (and, presumably, time)
They assume the Rights Holder is correct in all particulars and pass on the complaint to the user.
Unless Torvalds starts being a dick, you're not going to attract a complaint for Lunix distros or TED videos.
I'm pretty sure that there an out along the lines of there being a 'reasonable expectation that this is the legitimate price'.
'Free' product, especially major purchases, wouldn't meet that expectation, particularly if the site weren't making some big song and dance about the 'bargins'.
