Re: Any love for Windows 7?
All the Windows 7 updates since the middle of last year have disabled my USB ports. No keyboard, no mouse. Had to restore the hard drive on another PC using a backup.

The FM broadcast spectrum in the US is very crowded. As far as I know, The FCC doesn't go searching for rogue FM stations.
A few years ago I started getting interference on an FM station that I listen to. It turned out to be from a station (also run by a church) that was overmodulating its signal to the point that it was interfering with other FM stations. They probably did it because it made them "louder" than other stations. I don't recall them ever announcing their call letters, so they may have been unlicensed.
I complained to the FCC about them, and a few months later they were off the air.
I shop locally when I can, and enjoy the instant gratification of bringing stuff home with me.
But a lot of what I want, especially computer hardware and clothing in styles and sizes I wear, isn't available locally. Brick and mortar establishments just don't offer the variety available online. That's when local establishments lose my business.
Sales taxes aren't the issue for me, and many online businesses collect them anyway. New Jersey has a line on their tax return for use taxes on out-of-state purchases. I haven't had to pay anything for a couple of years.

In my community here in the US, we have "Single-Stream Recycling." Except for large pieces of cardboard (which are also collected), we put all our recyclables in a single container, and they are separated and sorted at the recycling facility.
