Posted in: Meet North Korea's new Kim - same as the old Kims See in context

I think China is tired of NK too. But the point is understandable. The US wont pay for another long term war, so that leaves few choices if this escalates.

Posted in: Meet North Korea's new Kim - same as the old Kims See in context

It's the tone of the article... "No cause for alarm". While Kim doesn't have the technology yet to send nukes to the US, I think it's a mistake to underestimate their anger and hatred toward most outsiders. Personally I think he is 100% serious and while it may seem like he is "putting on a good show", it would be a mistake to assume this guy is a buffoon.

Anyway, I will say this: She gave her fans what they obviously wanted. If they didn't want to see her that way, they would just keep their tweets to themselves. And... my opinion... she's not a butter face. No where near a butter face.

I would much rather be wrong that God does exist than be wrong about Him not existing.

Posted in: Microsoft users struggle with Windows redesign See in context

If Microsoft is no longer relevant, why is most of the world using their software? As for Windows 8, I have been testing the OS since the initial beta, and after spending a few hours getting acquainted with the new way to do things, I would agree that it is not a good forward step. Maybe Microsoft should reverse the initial boot-up process and bring the users to the standard desktop first, and then they can select the Metro interface if they want it.

It's a bold jump for Microsoft but maybe one they really should have considered more thoughtfully.

Well the title makes it sound like "Japan germs." I do know that here in Maine (The other Portland) bringing certain plants or wildlife from another state is illegal. Maine has strict laws to protect the ecosystem here. I just think the tone of the title is a bit misleading.

Why do you think ADD and ADHD is on the rise? Kids should be reading more and playing outside more and not in front of the TV/Computer 5 hours a day.

I'll buy one. I have been using the Customer Beta version of Windows 8 and even tho I am not thrilled with the new tablet interface it still runs my productivity software which is compatible with what I use at work.

Now if we can use these on a larger scale to cure terminal diseases... Life changing science. Well at least it will be portable in any case.

Posted in: 'Twilight' stays bright but Hollywood snoozes See in context

Well, BD (part 1) was not the best of the bunch. I would rate the third movie was the best of the series, followed by the first movie and then the second. Still the article mentioned BD doing well. It was most of the others that were not up to snuff.

The issue isn't a weak crop of movies. The issue is in the US it costs anywhere from $8 to $15 to see a movie! That's not including the eats!!! Family of four could spend $100 bucks to see a 3D movie. Times are hard.

Er... Jonobugs... when you fill out an application for MOST jobs you have to give a birth date. And yes you can be refused a job if you are too young or if the job requires you to do something you are not able to do and they cannot make suitable accommodations.

Hey look, employers do the same thing to regular people and we don't have the luxury to hide our ages when we go for interviews. If they sue IMDb then maybe everyone should sue potential employers that turn candidates down. Sounds ridiculous doesn't it? And what is a low wage? forty thousand???

I think its a good thing their ages are posted. Not all of the actors ages are posted either. Whats the difference between IMDb and Wikipedia??? Stop crying, your making 20 times my salary!

I was impressed with the video, although I knew most of those facts already. Still I think Japan is a good place to live and visit, and seeing the video certainly didn't change my mind.

She is far from a bimbo. She is a well educated woman of great stature. Try to not associate every woman of stature as a bimbo, it will make your statements less credible.

We have been using VS for years on our production servers and we create labs with servers and PCs to simulate network changes. Only negative is if a problem develops on the host system that takes it down... takes down all the guests too. Plus you need a host server with a LOT of horsepower.
