NASA Releases HiRISE Images of Curiosity's Descent

Sean Riordan Re:Too cool (220 comments)

Ugh ....
Maryland - Goddard Space Flight Center
New Mexico - AF Research Lab - Space Vehicles, Sandia Labs, Los Alamos Labs
Colorado - Ball, Raytheon, etc
California - JPL, Livermore Labs and way too many others to list
Virginia - Navy Research Lab, Wallops Island
Texas - UT Dallas, Texas A&M, Johnson Space Center, many more
Arizona - Orbital Sciences Corp., GD, etc
Tennessee - Oakridge
Alabama - U.S. Space and Rocket Center
Utah -Space Dynamics Laboratory, L3
Florida - Kennedy, ATK and many more
Alaska - Kodiak Island

The space industry is spread out over the entire country. This list could go on and on. Saying it is only Florida and Texas that benefit is mildly absurd. I agree with the idea, but it isn't nearly as narrow as that.

Favorite text editor?

Sean Riordan Re:Textpad! (1131 comments)

Agreed. Textpad has the perfect balance of feature set and configurability while remaining unobtrusive and doesn't get in the way.

As an alternative, Notepad++ I like nearly as well and has the advantage of being available for the PortableApps suite. Kate workswell for my needs as well and there is always Vi for CLI enviroments.

While there are issues of feature set and capability, for the most part I think text editor choice is all about personal preference. Much more so if you leave CLI usage out of the debate. For example the three primary applications I list above have very little to differenciate between them. They are all perfectly capable and do the job. I use Textpad mostly because I already have a plugin for it that supports syntax for an obscure language I use regularly, I am familiar with it, and I like the default color schemes for syntax highlighting. Though the defualt color scheme when run under wine is horrid, not sure why that is.

Full Review of the T-Mobile G1 Android Device

Sean Riordan Re:Not quite so open (135 comments)

T-Mobile has no problems with tethering that I am aware of and I have been using it on several phones for some time. (2 different Nokia S60 phones, and a Win phone) Their support people even support it.
