The division of the Central Experimental Farm is an attack on heritage designations and federal science.

Too bad nobody has started more significant backlash against the decision. Maybe I just haven't seen it.

One of the most dangerous things I’ve seen happen to people who are just starting to code is being told that it’s easy.

Video: Unorthodox motorcycle helmet test shows that cheap helmets aren't good for your head. http://boingboing.net/2014/05/22/unorthodox-motorcycle-helmet-t.html
In this test a Marushin Samara, approx $260USD, takes a hammer strike while a $40USD RZO does not. If your head is only worth $40 to you, go for it.

The realization that current copyright rules are a bad deal for society seems to be going mainstream. This in the citizen.

I have a book of dvd's in my briefcase, a toolkit of sorts. It's heavy. Does anyone know of a program that would let me create a USB bootable hard disk where I could just dump iso images into a file system and then have a grub like interface to boot from one of them?

Dear Company X,
Please get seasoned Unix system administrators to write your run control scripts. Using folks that are just learning about how Unix works to write these scripts is not only an embarrassment to your company, since it's often the only source code that can be publicly seen, it's causing security and infrastructure problems. Additionally, it is causing inter-group problems when we try to fix them but the application owner clings to your documentation as Gospel.

For example, an rc script (which runs as root in case you've forgotten) should never be sourcing files from a regular user's directory.

Other issues include sending any and all output of the script to /dev/null, leaving no trace of malfunction, or the opposite problem of creating log files without any log file management.

If you're really at loss on this one, might I suggest a couple of simple scripts to be run as the installed software's user which a properly written rc script can call?

Thanks.

It's kinda like putting $50 tires on an expensive sports car.

It was only a matter of time. 
Would a Harley still be a Harley if it didn’t have that out-of-my-way rumble and those fat, hydrocarbon-belching exhausts?

Came here during the Scotties Tournament of Hearts for a quick supper between games. We had the burger platter which also has fries and salad, which we enjoyed. Fries were very fresh and crispy. The salad was iceberg with cucumbers, tomatoes and Italian dressing. I ordered a Boreal beer from the tap and my wife had a glass of wine. She described it as tasting as though it had spent several months in a box. A woman at a neighbouring table said the red was worse. We sent it back and she ordered a beer. Overall, very happy.

What a charming Motel. The rooms are nicely renovated and well maintained. The establishment is clean and the owners are welcoming. I would happily stay here again.

Stopped here with the RV on the way to Gaspé. What a nice campground. We were about the only RV there for the two nights we stayed. Hookups were water and electric. There's a sewage service, but you have to ask for it and they bring you around to a sewer in a restricted area so you can dump. Really nice people, plenty of activities, campground consisted mostly of tenters. There's a restaurant with liquor license, showers, and common flush toilets. We participated in a two hour paddle down the Bonaventure River, one of the best salmon rivers in the world. Had a blast. Would come back.

The last few times I was in this place, the checkout at the front cash was really slow. Maybe I was just unlucky, but I don't think I was the only one frustrated. More cashiers might help. Not running 649 at the main cash is another idea. Maybe move it to the electronics counter.

Charming restaurant. Styled like a cabin or cottage. Waitress was friendly. Food was slow coming from the kitchen, but very yummy. Good cheeseburger and fries.

The food is consistently good, and very tasty. Wicked salt and pepper squid. Tender and yummy beef with black bean and flat noodle. Huge chicken balls. Restaurant has a large aquarium stocked with fish on the menu.
