Question:

Does anyone know of my netbook that came with Windows 7 Starter Edition will qualify for the free Windows 10 upgrade?

That fact it's never actually run Windows 7 Starter Edition since I bought it new, having wiped the machine for a KDE centric Linux distro from the start is beside the point.

Restricted area no trespassing - yet there's a sidewalk and all kinds of public access. There's a lots of weird schizo signs like that in Houston. My favorite is the restricted area no trespassing bus stop.

I question this stories validity though it does describe things just as I imagined them on the group think side. I've seen plenty of false looking leaving liberty stories obviously written from a left perspective so yeah, question everything. Still an interesting realistic looking read.

Way to screw with the post office - have it change destination addresses every four hours.  Leave a GPS tracker in there and watch the path it takes.

So - should we dig through comment history to look up all the rebuttals I've gotten for making this same argument?  This guy has a lot more documentation than I do to defend my position, let me just say, all of you've who've tried stomping me into the ground for pointing at this issue as the reason I've not gone into business for myself can bite me.  The government is preventing entrepreneurship more than they're helping it, and it's not just the raw unfair tax burden and protectionist regulation, but the implementation.

I am officially impressed.  I installed #NetRunner 15 Promethius today.  Not only is my PlayStation 3 control paired, I was able to pair it without having to jack with #SixAxis / #QTSixaAxis.  The thing JUST WORKS.  It's weird, it's not even showing up in my normal Bluetooth devices when I check, but that's cool, no complaints, it can mysteriously work and I'll be happy with that.

So, how long until a college degree is considered a bad thing when looking for a job because it means you're a brainwashed wuss?
College should be a place of new ideas and challenging views. Instead, liberals have made it a place of fear and intimidation.

I completely resent getting my degrees.  If they were any other product, you could return them for a refund because they don't work as advertised (aka - getting you a satisfying job).  My student loan debt is the number one shackle that keeps my locked into a profession I hate.

Don't listen out-of-context.

This is an awesome collection!  I already had some of it but I filled in a couple of holes, totally worth getting - for free.

Change we can believe in!
The systematic destruction of the American way of life is happening all around us, and yet most people have no idea what is happening.

Slightly on the expensive side. Five Guys and Mooyah have just as good of burgers if not better for cheaper, but this place has a "real restaurant" atmosphere where those other two feel more fast food. My only complaint about eating at this (or other Fudruckers) is my fellow patrons. For instance I just left a few minutes ago, there were two women looking at the soda dispenser like it was alien technology and they just stood in front of the thing and stared. Finally after a few minutes they got out of the way, sans soda. When they paged me to get my burger the same two women were staring at the condiment dispensers the same way. (Sadly this part of the review was written before they put in the newer touch-screen soda dispensers) I don't mean to pick on these two women, this happens every time I'm there. There is always someone who seems to not have the slightest idea how to work a salad bar or a pump dispenser and they're always just ahead of you, every time you turn around. At least the staff is great and I don't think they've ever messed up my order, which is better than I can say about most places. It would also be nice if they had a bike rack for me to park at, as it stands I chain my bike to a pole in the middle of their bushes. I had to knock a star off because the "red spice" - I'm not sure what it is - that every single other Fuddruckers I've been to has is not available at this location and hasn't been in years. If you ask for it someone might hunt down a shaker - they blame it on theft, usually walk around the place, look at every table and the fixin's bar where it should be, but it's never there, it wasn't there when they opened that day, I don't know why they look.
