Alex Santoso's Comments

My neighbor went through this when he rented out his house to somebody who turned out to be a serial rent dodger. The guy knew every legal trick in the book, and got to live rent-free for 6 months. In the mean time, my neighbor almost lost the house because he had depended on part of the rent money to pay for his mortgage.

Bandwidth and CPU usage are two different things - blog engines like Wordpress are CPU hogs (especially if you use a lot of plugins) so I'm familiar with Carl's dilemma of running out of one's allotment of CPU cycles before you even come close to running out of bandwidth.

I wonder why Now That's Nifty Blog doesn't weave a narrative and their sources into the post itself ... they've got great post ideas that often just end up as an aggregate of photos or a copypasta job from Wikipedia. It's too bad.

Faced with bad viral publicity, United is now "trying to make it right"

I've flown United many times, and in the past several years, their service had gotten a lot worse. Bad as they are, United is still better than American Airlines, the only airline I refuse to fly (after a couple of very bad experiences) even if they pay me.

It's always been amazing to me that some people (from both sides of the religion/atheism argument) insist on "proofs."

If it can be proven, it's no longer faith. Actually, faith is all about the absence of proof. It's how humans believe - not because it can be proven, but exactly because it cannot be proven.

@mmm - that darned English language. It keeps on changing on us poor sods:

From the Merriam-Webster Dictionary:

1: a usually pictorial representation : image

2 [Late Greek eik?n, from Greek] : a conventional religious image typically painted on a small wooden panel and used in the devotions of Eastern Christians

3: an object of uncritical devotion : idol

4: emblem, symbol

5 a: a sign (as a word or graphic symbol) whose form suggests its meaning b: a graphic symbol on a computer display screen that usually suggests the type of object represented or the purpose of an available function

The thing is that these apartment buildings are sprouting like mushrooms in China. They have rows upon rows upon rows of them. Someone told me that on average, a building like this one goes up in China every single day.
