I doubt I'll be surprised by their answer...

Btw sea circuit rocks. I could do it over-and-over again all day.
Well I can't talk shit about obstacle courses...>_>

But I thought the Shepherd's gate was "Weeeee~ !!"

Then it's no different than what we have with the sign-on girls already imo...

There's no better comedian in life than a forced volunteer

Penguins in Space!

NASA has decided that the time has come to replace Windows with Debian Linux on the over 140 laptops on board the International Space Station. They had been running XP, but now that it has reached end-of-life, NASA opted for Linux because, according to one official, "we needed an operating system that was stable and reliable – one that would give us in-house control. So if we needed to patch, adjust or adapt, we could."

If Balmer hadn't screwed it up that badly they would probably keep on using Windows.

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.

This could be one of the reasons:

The news media is even worse than you think:

"5 corrupting influences are keeping the public from the facts"

Somebody should tell them Windows 7 is really freaking good.

Lemme guess, they kept going to all those shady porn sites and kept getting viruses and trojans, huh?

Well they want to make their own patches and Microsoft charges for that, and You never know when the Chinese might crack their system to leave SPAM in the station's files....

19 New Orleans shooting victims included 2 kids
http://hosted.ap.org/dynamic/stories...05-12-21-53-42
Quote:
Gunmen opened fire on people marching in a neighborhood Mother's Day parade in New Orleans on Sunday, wounding at least 19.
The shooting - described by the FBI as a flare-up of street violence - shattered the festive mood surrounding the parade that drew hundreds of people to the 7th Ward neighborhood of modest row houses not far from the French Quarter.
Thankfully, nobody died this time.

Go to one of these rallies, stick a remote controlled vibrator between each of their buttcheeks, then turn them on at random.

NASA (and the other space agencies) have some pretty smart software engineers on staff. I think they are better off supporting the software they ran themselves than paying large amounts to a for-profit corporation. I'm actually surprised that those computers were running Windows in the first place. I'm not sure I would trust that system to keep on trucking on the harsh environment of space.

I would assume it was done because of some deal with Microsoft after the various hearing in Congress. I seem to recall Pacific Bell had issues with Microsaft over prices and didn't buy one of the major versions of Windows (they skipped one, probably Windows 2000 or Me)

A Philadelphia doctor was found guilty on Monday of murdering three babies during abortions at a clinic serving low-income women in a case that cast a national spotlight on the controversial practice of late-term abortions.

From other the article this guy does not seem to be right in the head. Apparently he would put fetus in plastic containers and bags. I really think this trial goes beyond abortion, rather this looks a trial for just one really sick person.
