  1. Can anyone say that Apple does not spy through their OS?
  2. I recently spent $6,500 on a young registered Black Angus bull. I put him out with the herd but he just ate grass and wouldn't even look at a cow. I was beginning to think I had paid more for that bull than he was worth. Anyhow, I had the Vet come and have a look at him. He said the bull was very healthy, but possibly just a little young, so he gave me some pills to feed him once per day. The bull started to service the cows within two days, all my cows! He even broke through the fence and bred with all of my neighbor's cows! He's like a machine! I don't know what was in the pills the Vet gave him ............ but they kind of taste like peppermint.
  3. The Yen is a standard international currency, has been for a great many years. Thank you, goodbye.
  4. I am also quite disappointed in MBAM. Oh well, they are becoming rich, time for me to quit volunteering.
  5. Ok fine guys. I am seeing the same game played with a slightly different rule book, which will also change when it becomes advantageous to the rich.
  6. I have read it and do not trust them anymore than i trust the banks. Ergo, i do not trust bit coin until proof is supplied that they are not being used the same way as our currency is in the long run. The fact that their price has jumped ridiculously lately is also scarey. That indicated that it was being used to gain a hold by crooked persons. Suddenly you have people making money for no reason, explain that please.
  7. Perhaps read a bit yourself. Oh yes we really trust this scam.......
  8. You can see the new topic here Donna
  9. An explanation would be helpful. I am experiencing the same issue, then one mod says it is all good and another says nope, run the checker.
  10. A Tablet can be a very helpful aid to many people. One of which would be my wife, she has MS and is not very good with her hands. Her Tablet goes with her outside or where ever we go and takes pictures or she can Skype, her laptop is too clumsy and the use of a mouse is sometimes difficult for her. There are many more people and reasons...........
  11. Wow! Amazing photo!
  12. Anyone who has ever worked for a big company (or the government) will understand this one... A toothpaste factory had a problem: they sometimes shipped empty boxes, without the tube inside. This was due to the way the production line was set up, and people with experience in designing production lines will tell you how difficult it is to have everything happen with timings so precise that every single unit coming out of it is perfect 100% of the time. Small variations in the environment (which can't be controlled in a cost-effective fashion) mean you must have quality assurance checks smartly distributed across the line so that customers all the way down to the supermarket don't get peed off and buy another product instead. Understanding how important that was, the CEO of the toothpaste factory got the top people in the company together and they decided to start a new project, in which they would hire an external engineering company to solve their empty boxes problem, as their engineering department was already too stretched to take on any extra effort. The project followed the usual process: budget and project sponsor allocated, RFP, third-parties selected, and six months (and $8million) later they had a fantastic solution - on time, on budget, high quality and everyone in the project had a great time. They solved the problem by using high-tech precision scales that would sound a bell and flash lights whenever a toothpaste box would weigh less than it should. The line would stop, and someone had to walk over and yank the defective box out of it, pressing another button when done to re-start the line. A while later, the CEO decides to have a look at the ROI of theproject: amazing results! No empty boxes ever shipped out of the factory after the scales were put in place. Very few customer complaints, and they were gaining market share. "That's some money well spent!" - he says, before looking closely at the other statistics in the report. It turns out, the number of defects picked up by the scales was 0 after three weeks of production use. It should've been picking up at least a dozen a day, so maybe there was something wrong with the report. He filed a bug against it, and after some investigation, the engineers come back saying the report was actually correct. The scales really weren't picking up any defects, because all boxes that got to that point in the conveyor belt were good. Puzzled, the CEO travels down to the factory, and walks up to the part of the line where the precision scales were installed. A few feet before the scale, there was a $20 desk fan, blowing the empty boxes off of the belt and into a bin. "Oh, that," says one of the workers - "one of the guys put it there 'cause he was tired of walking over every time the bell rang" And that's why my friend, lazy people are smarter than energetic people.
  13. I was thinking the same Ron.
