2011 Was the 9th Hottest Year On Record
Ice ages, hot periods, floods, land scape changes, saltier oceans. The climate and Earth is always changing. Always has been and always will be. With or without us.
Is E85 Dead Now?
I thought it was the other way around? Low octanes are good for high compression engines, like diesels with no ignition systems, and high octanes like ethanol are good for low compression?

Microsoft, Nokia, and Amazon Contemplated RIM Takeover
How sad that RIM has basically backed themselves into the corner. They used to have a rock solid product and reputation in the business world for communications devices, enterprise encrypted emails... now flop after flop and stiff competition and suddenly they are on their death bed. Sad, but more pathetic than anything.
Ask Slashdot: Getting a Grip On an Inherited IT Mess?
Assess your most vulnerable items. If that is a server, a network component, application, database etc. Give them all a critical score. Share that list with your boss/manager and work the list one item at a time. You can't spread yourself too thin when working a project like this, so focus on one or two items at a time until you see a light at the end of the tunnel.
Groupon Not Doing So Well On Wall Street

How Does a Self-Taught Computer Geek Get Hired?
I am in the same boat. Learned computer hardware as a hobby. Fixed family and friend's PCs, started networking houses, and then small businesses. Moved into the corporate world on the lowest rung of the ladder. Working a helpdesk and paying dues, and just kept working up from there. If you are a hard worker and have the technical know how and problem solving abilities and can communicate with people outside of the industry you will be fine. I have worked my way up to the manager of service delivery for a large company. Only now am I looking back to get a degree, and it wont be in computer science.
