+Peter Robinson I purchased an UDOO Quad board, came in the mail yesterday. I'm not overly happy with Ubuntu, and how things don't seem to work well... I'd like to use Fedora, but it looks like support for it isn't in 20, only in Rawhide. How can I get started using Rawhide? Or can I backport things into Fedora 20 for support?

If anyone is interested. The first version of my slide deck on the #Java  8 Date Time API is posted.  

I used +Dan Allen's Asciidoctor.
It isn't possible to format a calendar. January is represented by 0 instead of 1, a source of bugs. Calendar isn't type-safe; for example, you must pass an int-based constant to the get(int field) method. (In fairness, enums weren't available when Calendar was released.) ...

It seems to me that iProvo and Utopia have provided little more than broken promises, mis-management, corruption, and higher taxes.

I say it is time to try something different.  Discounts on taxes, free pole rentals and office space seem to me a small price to pay for game changing internet service in the community.

Pete should have found a way to offer a similar deal to this community long ago.

When stores like Wal-Mart move their Black Friday sales to Thanksgiving Day, they truly have forgotten the purpose of the holiday--and cynically ask their employees to leave their loved ones, too. 

Stay with your families on Thursday, friends. Cook and eat together. Watch a football game or a family movie. Call your relatives. Don't waste your precious day off standing in lines or fighting crowds in malls.

But it's ok because wal-mart knows they don't pay their "associates" enough to eat anyway so why stay home and brood over that?

Yet again, "women are not objects, they're not sex symbols". That's what we're told right? Then you see images like this; yes, she's dressed, and dressed nicely, but the pose and the semi-reveling way the blouse is buttoned? Does that say "not a sex symbol" to you? They say a picture is worth 1000 words. What's this one saying?

I agree it is a delicate issue. I don't agree with the portrayal of women in the media, nor do I think modesty and improper thoughts should lie solely on the side of women. If anything we should teach our boys to keep a clean mind.

Sure dressing modestly can help but ultimately what one person thinks is up to them, regardless of external influences.

Having an appointment (and a Honda) makes a lot of difference. Before when we had a pre-owned from them, it was a Dodge, we'd wait and wait to get even an oil change done. Don't have that problem anymore.
