Unlike many online environments, Socks Inc. actively encourages creative and critical thinking. Don’t let a lack of offspring put you off though; anyone can play. I know I’m looking forward to trying this game out with my kids, and this is why: We can play together when it suits our busy schedules. My son is good with technology, and my daughter is creative: This is a game in which they can explore their complementary skills constructively. Mostly, Socks Inc. just looks like a whole lot of fun to play.
Design problems were also present. The Battery did not perform well in cold weather and speed was capped at 15 MPH, allowing youngsters and other unlicensed drivers to drive it on the roads. The motor lacked gears, and was supplemented by poorly-situated pedals.
The NIPC later issued a statement stating that patching the hole provided sufficient protection.
It isn’t necessarily what you’d expect from a collaborative platform. Unlike, say, Google Docs, Mix doesn’t offer any way to work on things in private. Instead, it’s a free-for-all by design. Every piece inside of it is up for the taking. You can think of it as a fluid global game of Exquisite Corpse, except at any point a given work could be the head, the body, or the tail of someone else’s creation.
Last year, software developer was the second-most-common job advertised by manufacturing companies, behind only sales, according to data provided by Burning Glass Technologies, a company that analyzes labor market data.
But leave it to Drudge to spice things up. Reporters were still making it through Fleet Center security, and his site had already posted titillating tidbits like “Teresa tells reporter: ‘Shove it….'” (Drudge exclusive), “Internal fight over how much Bush bashing at convention,” “Fort Boston,” “Network anchors express disappointment in convention air time” and “Iowa first lady slammed blacks, Easterners and Southerners as bad speakers.” This last one linked to a Boston Herald report on Christie Vilsack, who 10 years ago apparently penned some “inflammatory” columns for a local newspaper that derided the way African-Americans, Southerners and other groups speak English. Vilsack, whose husband was on Kerry’s short list of potential VP nominees, had already been rewarded with a prime-time speaking role at the convention.
My kids have offered to teach me but the games haven’t interested me enough to want to spend the time learning.
The Berg execution, a gruesome example of Netpolitiking (.pdf), sparked a back-room debate at the highest levels, involving the State Department, the Department of Justice and the Defense Department, said Dietz.
I’d never heard of this. If the range of the headphones is 10 meters, I didn’t think it would be a problem to keep the phone in an armband on my left side, my usual spot. I had no problems. But JayBird claims that the water in my body would block the Bluetooth frequency. It didn’t.
One human reproductive cloning advocate accused Jaenisch of cloaking moral arguments in complicated science that’s impossible for non-scientists to decipher.
Besides, “The Plant” isn’t dead yet. The best-selling horror writer advises readers not to despair, saying that the last time “The Plant” furled its leaves, the story remained dormant for 19 years.
“We’re not saying the United States is going to be the star, pioneer or the only guys out there,” said the study’s author Sohrab Torabi. “What we are saying is you have three very strong markets. In the past, the U.S. was considered a second-tier market, but we’re showing that it’s not.”

It was the perfect squat. Within a couple weeks, Hung had gone from anonymous college student to national conversation topic.
Or you’re on some hours-long road patrol with the military. You’ve long ago given up hope that anything’s going to happen, so you’ve tucked away your cameras to protect them from the sand and heat. Then the rebels fire a few shots at your vehicles and the troops fly into action, accelerating, dodging, shouting at each other, shooting back.
It’s all over in seconds – but what seconds they were! You had just enough time to grab your N95, shoot some shaky video with Qik and send it, via GSM multimedia message, to your blog, where all the world can see just how sudden and chaotic war can be.
__7) Wikipedia has a list of “deleted articles with freaky titles”
__ If you’re after a bit of amusement, Wikipedia’s list of DAFT, or “deleted articles with freaky titles” is a good place to head. As the name suggests, it’s a list of articles that people have created which have subsequently been deleted, but were too wonderfully-named not to keep some sort of a record of.
Kelly’s eclectic interests – he’s a former photojournalist and a cycling nut – ensure the site’s material is always delightfully unpredictable. There’s quite a lot of tech, of course, but Kelly is as likely to highlight a book about raising chickens as an FM transmitter for the iPod.
“We don’t want to make our network one that works well for one segment and turns off whole other segments,” Pincus says. “I can’t tell you we’re never going to piss off some segment of our users. (But) we’re trying to create enough sandboxes and segment enough so that people can express themselves and not be offensive to others.”
Doctor Fabian is not only treating Veronica’s sister, but he’s also physician to Queen Victoria. The Queen is sick… very sick. And it’s Doctor Fabian’s machine that is keeping her alive. This is a man who has a lot of pressures and a lot of demands from his queen, and it’s no surprise that the steam version of the mad scientist has found a home in the major medical character in the story. (While the previous two books only give glimpses of the steampunk world these characters inhabit, Immorality goes a bit deeper and introduces not just medical machines but also war machines – I loved every bit of the descriptions and never once felt like steampunk-tech was being thrown into the story for grins as other steampunk stories tend to do.)
The voluntary U.N. ban included language to allow countries to do tests near their shores. But it’s the open seas, particularly in the southern hemisphere, that would allow in-situ testing of the LOHAFEX scientists’ hypotheses.
Congresswoman Zoe Lofgren has introduced a bill, “Aaron’s Law,” to rein in the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act. Hopefully Auernheimer’s conviction will help underline the importance of such reform, notwithstanding Weev’s history of often unsavory trolling, or the fact that his group shared their PHP script with third parties before AT&T closed the security hole.
So here I am trying to make that idea a reality. Here I am putting my every last cent into that idea. I believe it can be done and I am taking the first few steps to make that idea a reality. So strongly do I believe it can be done that I am putting up all my own personal money, my retirement money.
The company has Federal Aviation Administration approval to conduct tests of the technology in the California desert, but needs $3 million to build full-size flying generators. The company is having trouble raising the cash because there isn’t likely to be an immediate return on investors’ money.
__GD: __Lastly, Alex, what do you see as the future of Quidditch? Where does the game go from here?
