you'll never see a republican suggest free school (unless its a 'jesus is god' school, of course).

Tennessee Governor Urges 2 Free Years of Community College and Technical School

Looks to me like Obama stole a Republican's idea.

this is one of the first good ideas obama has shown, and one that is much more linked with the democratic party.

If it was his, I would agree, but alas, looks like even 6 years in, he has not had one single good idea.

TheViffer Re:Zero details (197 comments)

What I would love to know is: Why does eBay need 4000 VMs ?

Taking the scope of eBay, PayPal, or any of the other company under eBay and then adding up the total number of developers and quality assurance it should be very apparent why a system is required in which a VM can be created and deleted for testing and development purposes in a very short amount of time.

Erasing CDs By Using 150,000 Volts of Electricity

Just get a DVD Shredder .. save your microwave, save yourself .. and most importantly you^H^H^H "your friend" will have a microwave to nuke those pizza roles at 11 pm at night.
