There is nothing legally wrong with it, and it has happened before.
However, once a President is out, he is seen by the Americans as a has been and they welcome the New, Naive and Inexperienced, rather than the firm hand and experienced former President who has a long list of friends and acquaintances in 'The System' already.
I always considered it a weakness that the American people could not vote for a good successful president.
By any measure, Clinton was a good president. (Blow Jobs in the Oval Office notwithstanding, but hey, if you were the most powerful man in the world what would you do?)
After two terms he had to go, even if most Americans wanted him to remain in office and continue with the job, he was disbarred. Hardly seems democratic that the people's choice cannot be chosen. (Yes, I know WHY there is a two term limit, but that argument is fallacious, you do not need to impose a limit when the constitution allows you to bear arms AGAINST your government.)

There's definitely an article in it. While I won't be giving away the source code to the actual photo editing part, I will be writing about the more important part - how to use the perceptual side, and I will make the library I'm writing for this available for anyone to use.
I was brought up to respect my elders. I don't respect many people nowadays.
You know you have a mental image of what some Code Project members look like and when you see them they look nothing like how you imagined? Well I think your the closest to how I imagined although I did think you wore glasses and were older than you actually look in that pic.
Well, I stopped by the local Microsoft store today and I have in my grubby little hand my reservation for a Surface Pro for pickup on Saturday February 9th. I'm sure that by the evening of the 9th I'll have formed a first hand opinion of whether that was a good plan or not.
While there I wanted to buy an extra copy of Office, but they no longer have Office 2010 in stock. I may go ahead and pick up a copy of Office 365 with my new Surface Pro. Looking at the use (5 PC's can use the license and I have 1, 2, 3, 4 why 5 PC's here) vs. the cost ($99/yr whereas I normally upgrade Office Pro every 4 or 5 years) it may actually be cheaper to just pay for the subscription.
Has anyone else had any firsthand experience with either the Surface Pro or with Office 365 yet?

I'm old, and reluctant to try these newfangled toys, but I'm also experienced and know from that experience that Microsoft nearly always f***s up what should have been an easy assignment. I think I'll stand by the wayside and watch for your future posts before I commit to letting the masters of instability and insecurity store my important documents in their fluffy and overpriced little cloud. Let me know how it works out, and thank you for volunteering to go first.
