I just heard that Microsoft’s most recent mantra is “Cloud-first, Mobile-first”. This lofty aspiration has inspired me to concoct a mantra of my own (one even grander than Microsoft’s, IMHO). From here on out, you can expect me to be single-mindedly devoted to pursuing: “Excellence-first, solemnity-first, get-more-done-and-have-more-fun-first, newest-technology-on-the-block-first, diligence-first, balanced-with-mindless-entertainment-first, mom-first, apple-pie-first, no-make-that-chocolate-chip-cookie-dough-first, people-first, church-first, home-first, work-first, peaceful-evenings-out-on-the-veranda-first, and (last but certainly not least – in fact, first) never-forgetting-to-keep-first-things-first-first.”
Your primary objective should be to collate your thoughts into a coherent and easily comprehensible form which manages to employ the absolute minimum number of words and phrases yet still fully articulates the concept in its entirety.
Excellence-first, solemnity-first, get-more-done-and-have-more-fun-first, newest-technology-on-the-block-first, diligence-first, balanced-with-mindless-entertainment-first, mom-first, apple-pie-first, no-make-that-chocolate-chip-cookie-dough-first, people-first, church-first, home-first, work-first, peaceful-evenings-out-on-the-veranda-first, and (last but certainly not least – in fact, first) never-forgetting-to-keep-first-things-first-first.
I have an older Asus that has a bad battery but still works quite well (needs to be plugged in, though).
My mom has a 3 year old HP laptop, and it can barely run Win7, much less WinX. It crashes with hardware errors quite often, and HP refuses to fix the issues (they used faulty parts, likely knowingly, and don't really care). I installed Fedora Linux on a small Lenovo laptop my dad used to use so my mom could at least have something useable. I just need to do a few more tweaks to get it completely set up, and show her how to use it.
What do you get when you cross a joke with a rhetorical question?
The metaphorical solid rear-end expulsions have impacted the metaphorical motorized bladed rotating air movement mechanism.
Do questions with multiple question marks annoy you???
Bought ours last weekend during the Georgia sales tax free weekend on Saturday from Best Buy. Wake up Sunday morning and they had dropped the price by $100.00. Went right over after church and got the price reduction.
My parents used to live out north of the city next to a park out there, forgot the name it's been MANY years since I've been to Ft. Wayne. The city has had some hard times over the year Harvester International used to have a huge plant there and just closed the doors one day...put a hell of a lot of people out on the streets.
I lived there for a while but never cared for the place and ended up in KY, where I went to college then here in FL for the last 30 years.
New version: WinHeist Version 2.2.2 Beta I told my psychiatrist that I was hearing voices in my head. He said you don't have a psychiatrist!
Old favorite of mine. Got a few Hooverphonic albums at home and I've been listening to them this last week
For a moment I considered their song Anger Never Dies (as long as HTML/CSS exists), but in the end I'm just mad about Mad About You
Yes, yes...they are: Inside the plane that crash-landed - BBC News[^]
Yesterday's Dubai plane crash landing: footage from inside the plane.
So...a thin metal tube full of highly inflammable liquid has just crashed with you on board.
1) Video what happens for posterity?
2) Make sure you get all your luggage from the overhead lockers?
3) Slowly move to the nearest emergency exit?
4) Get off that sucker as quickly as possible, helping others as you go?
Apparently it's 1, 2, and 3, but forget 4...
And right at the end, look at the engine that's on fire...
Very lucky people. Stupid, but lucky.
Bad command or file name. Bad, bad command! Sit! Stay! Staaaay...
yep, saw that down here in the news on Aus TV - these are the people who are talking during the safety demonstration or ignoring it entirely and/or never read the safety card - yet they'd be the first to dial for a lawyer (presuming they did escape and didnt get bbq-d)
