I'd say its more there attempt to cash in on the social networking scene and integrate all their services into something like Facebook. Improved community interaction would just be a bonus.

The internet is a brutally honest place; there isn't much left for politeness. Those who can't take it should just stay off the internet, go out and take a walk.

Most of all, you have to be disciplined and you have to save, even if you hate our current financial system. Because if you don't save, then you're guaranteed to end up with nothing.

The internet is the place to hide the truth...I mean the fake truth and the "real" truth....

Maybe so, but youtube's comments are infamous for how bad they are. Just read the comments on the moon landing video. Or better yet, don't.

Makes 4chan look like poetry.

Ok, here's a tough one: how will I explain to my 50 year old dad what a computer role playing game is? Do bare in mind that the last computer games he played were running off tape on a ZX Spectrum.

From the looks of things you said yes since I just looked at mine and it was set to 'no'.
For some people it was automatically set to "yes". May have been some A/B test; youtube has a lot of those.

Sit him down, have him create a character and stand back (well, give him a hand with control UI)

Seriously, a verbal description would just fail. But I'll try anyway: "Imagine a book/movie where you have control of one of the characters and your decisions actually changes the plot of the book/movie."

Uhmm... Do want to make him understand "What a Computer Role Playing game is?or you just want to teach him "How to Play a Computer Role Playing game?"

I think the first one is pretty easy.

But about second...

Make him play with a joy stick first.. then PS controller before the Computer's keyboard. About the choice of computer games, choose games like Counter Strike (too old game?) or bad assed Call of Duty. Shooting games will activate his inner drive and sooner or later he may end up staying in your room shouting "Yeah, who's your Dad!!! Me!!!"...

Go bring out the old pen-paper D&D, and say that it is the computer version of it.

So I feel silly asking this here as a 29-year old.. but this always bugged me when I was a kid. So here it is.. You know when you're asked to close your eyes and imagine an image? .. I can't do that. When I close my eyes and try to imagine something fixed, random images and things would appear.. Does this happen to anyone else?

For example, I just tried to close my eyes and imagine a fluffy cloud in a blue sky. While trying to fix that image in my head, the cloud shifted sideways and revealed a giant upside down dog head in a Monty Python-ish style.. I'm not crazy, I swear..

Reply hazy, ask again later

You have a creative mind my friend. Sometimes, the more you focus the more thoughts will enter your mind...

That's why I doubt that one could even clear him/her mind when doing meditations.

How do you explain to someone in layman's terms, that returned/damaged goods are also considered part of inventory management and add to operating costs, to someone who is interested in streamlining his workplace rather than just forcing his subordinates to do things they can't?

Is there a specific concept map for this in any LSCM textbook?

This is what I think you're looking for: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Reverse_logistics

Although, from a purely financial standpoint, we look at returns from a receivables perspective. In particular with regards to chargebacks and reversals, you're dealing with managing the quality of your receivables profile.

A moderator recently posted a Quantcast profile of AnimeSuki members, but I don't remember where it is at the moment. I believe we have a significant number of French members, but I don't recall the exact figure.

That's a good question. I don't know what type of news you're looking for, but you could try Agence France-Presse for a start.

RTO is probably the thing I am looking for. Another question though, with regards to the "proper quality checks", is there a book or an advisors' guideline for it?

So I've decided not to put up with my netbook's battery again, is it alright to just leave the battery off indefinitely?

I know what happens to the battery if you do that, my concern here is the netbook.

What happens with the battery?

Anyway.. I rarely use my netbook's battery currently... since I save it for blackouts. I only attached it fear of unexpected blackouts during downloads.....

The battery dies randomly, this can happen anytime after it goes below 50% so I don't like using it anymore.

EDIT: Disregard my previous question, something happened and there's nothing I can do now.
