Since the age of our account is posted in "days" it would have been nice to see the poll reflect that.

There are other products that come out of the process with the salt. There is a good example of the Persian Gulf because of the number of installations and the ability to easily measure the increase in salinity and contaminants.

It cannot find UNLV or University of Nevada Las Vegas?

Showed up in the search with a hyphen. Here is the direct link: http://www.universitycrimewatch.com/schools/1601. Lots of auto theft.

I disagree,because of this: http://www.theglobeandmail.com/technology/tech-news/microsof...

Imageworks is taking 2 floors in the same building, Amazon is already in the Telus building at the 555 Robson Atrium and have leased numerous floors in the new Telus Garden tower which will be open momentarily: http://www.vancitybuzz.com/2013/10/amazon-vancouver-office-t...

I just read these and am waiting for the third. http://www.wolfhoundcentury.com/ Peter isn't on Twitter, but he responds to email through his site. I hope there is a major motion picture in the works as he has created a very cool world.

SEEKING FREELANCER, Vancouver, BC (no remotes please) for updates/changes to the One Degree iOS app. This is on an ongoing, as needed basis so if you have some bandwidth from time to time, let's meet! http://www.onedegree.co

I had battery operated signals on my 3 speed bike with highrise handlebars and a sissy bar in 1969! So yes, why not have them today, especially if you are going to ride IN traffic?

What about Canada? I'd subscribe in a second as we too, are cord cutters up here.

-----


Wouldn't it be nice. As a Canadian who hasn't had cable for a decade, every six months or so I check on options. I subscribed to Netflix when we got it here, and it's cheap and good, but I'd love to be able to access HBO and other movie content.

I tried to find a legal download of Bladerunner the other day, and got the following:

1) Amazon.com geofenced it

2) Google Play won't let me download it (I have "bought" movies on Google Play before, but like any digital play-for-now service they will eventually become unavailable to me: I will no longer buy digital content I can't rip to an open format, because temporary proprietary access is not what I'm looking for.)

3) iTunes doesn't have it

4) Amazon.ca doesn't do digital downloads of films, near as I can tell. They certainly didn't have the one I was looking for.

All I want to be able to do is pay for a legal digital copy of a film, and I can't. I can buy a piece of plastic with the bits burned into it that I have no device to play, but that's a ridiculous waste.

I didn't torrent the film... I just ended up saying, "Screw it. No sale for me."

Business 101: make it easy for customers to give you money.

This is something that digital streaming companies (other than Netflix) have not mastered.

Bell owns the rights to the HBO name here, and currently bundles HBOGO (and HBO content) under TMNGO. You currently need to be a subscriber on one of their "approved" TV providers to access it, like HBOGO.

Now Bell will likely make some concessions to prevent complete Canadian public outrage, but whatever the US gets, I'm sure the Canadian version will have a few drawbacks added to the existing ones in the US service.

I stopped reading at, "a__holes".

Mr. Auernheimer needs to learn to write like an adult if he wants to be taken seriously.

-----


Stopping reading because someone said something offensive is not an adult behaviour, so the irony here is palpable. Read the fucking article.

-----


The problem is not being offensive but being childish. The vocabulary used gives you a hint about the level of arguments you are about to read, and if you read the rest of the article, you realize that the author of the post is indeed quite immature.

-----


The article was fairly mature. However what would make me more skeptical about anything weev writes is the fact that he is an angry paranoid due to his drug use (http://seclists.org/fulldisclosure/2009/Oct/82).

His account of his gay hacking incident is interesting. How could he possibly know it was gay people who flagged his posts ? That's either paranoia, ironic trolling, or homophobia. I thought maybe he was just trolling when he says that gay people flagged him, but after reading the Lisa Simpson post above, I think he might actually believe it.

No intelligent person would do drugs like heroin if they did a little research and understood about neurotransmitter receptor downregulation. Basically, doing any drugs (including alcohol, caffeine or nicotine) will downregulate your neurotransmitter receptors for up to 2 weeks after a single dose (depending on the amount), resulting in the exact OPPOSITE effect of the drugs for up to 2 weeks afterwards. (With chronic use, the downregulation can take years to reverse).

In summary, he is one truly fucked up dude due to the drugs.

1 downvote, lolz. I wonder who that could be?

-----


Everything I said was factual. If I made any errors, feel free to correct me rather than downvoting.

-----


This is plain garbage. An adult is not necessarily seriously and nobody needs to learn to "write like an adult".

There are more "adults" using the internet then _placeholder_ and nobody ever told me I should take the internet seriously.

Neither of your sentences make any grammatical sense.
