 Not the cable companies. It's the channel owners. They hold the providers and the viewer hostage."Oh, you want our popular channels with the hit shows on them?""Well, you have to take our crap channels too or no deal." So we are stuck with channels that are mostly infomercials or shopping, etc.Same reason you get all those Spanish channels you can't understand.If they had to survive on actual viewers the channel owners would find them unprofitable.They would either have...
Hey Tim. It's a natural cycle. It last about 65-70 years. The rate of warming between the recent cycle and the last one was identical. The 50s, 60s and 70s were cooler than the 80s, 90s and 2000s. But there has been no increase in the temperature anomaly in 17 years. So we are heading into the cooling half of the cycle once again. Weather was more severe and more extreme in the COOLER 50s-70s than it was during the warmer 80s-2000s. Since the mid 70s the number of...
Perhaps what we need is Miracle Max.
 There is a huge middle area where things are either not small enough or not large enough to find the finances to have everything on servers, cloud or thumb drives.That means optical disc as a storage medium makes a lot of sense. It may sound old fashioned to many but when working with fire alarm plans they are still sent in for review as hard copy.

Let's see how they like using a fridge or microwave that way. All doors would have the handles on the side. Desk phones would have all the buttons on the back of the phone, let's see the secretary transfer calls quickly and easily that way.
Just a bump since there hasn't been any real news regarding mini. I'm considering jumping on the base i5 that Best Buy has on sale for $489.99.   Either that or going with the Lenovo ThinkCentre M93p that at least has Haswell.
Damn typo! It's supposed to be iBacon. A small microwave bacon cooker.
Might want to read up on the Carboniferous Period. The time when the Earth was the greenest and lushest it has ever been. CO2 levels were several times higher than it is now. Plants flourished. Able to benefit from all the CO2. Plants grow faster and stronger with more CO2. They are also more water efficient and more drought tolerant with more CO2.  Abundant plant life lead to abundant animal life. In fact it is likely that the increase in oxygen levels from all those...
