Should Colleges Ban Classroom Laptop Use?

justdaven What about e-textbooks (804 comments)

My school uses e-textbooks that can only be accessed from computers, not e-readers. Without my laptop, I cannot access my textbook in class..

Seconded! Sitting through crappy reality shows about fat people losing weight is neigh torture. She feels the same way about Stargate. So I compromise and watch her shows.

The Science of Avatar

justdaven What ever happened to Suspension of disbelief (275 comments)

It is a work of fiction and a movie. Meant for entertainment value. I enjoyed the movie, and thought it was a great experience. Those of you who don't want to see it, don't. But stop being a mindless drone (that you accuse others of being), by trashing something you have no experience of. Get a life!

Yahoo Revives Pay-Per-Email, With Charitable Twist

justdaven Re:How Exactly Does This Fight Spam? (287 comments)

I would guess that from a money standpoint, that Yahoo! probably gets the money and turns it over to the charity on a monthly or a quarterly (or even yearly) basis. Doing this allows them to use the money for a while, investing it and pocketing the interest.

Standalone GPS Receivers Going the Way of the Dodo

justdaven Re:I guess I should prepare for extinction then (422 comments)

You are right about this, but the article is referring to the consumer market, not the military and commercial one. There are a lot of reasons for and against dedicated GPS', but they were just trying to find a reason for their slumping sales, and they may have hit the nail on the head, there

This was pretty boring. I kept hoping that it would get interesting, but it didn't. It definitely fits the idle category, but save yourself the time unless you enjoy ranting...

Microsoft Won't Vouch For Linux

justdaven Re:They ought to provide training for Linux (208 comments)

I actually have to agree with mR.bRiGhTsId3. I work for a large company that is moving a lot of their server-side stuff to Windows, and we have desktop clients that use all versions of Windows from Win 95 to XP. Our company is not looking to upgrade anytime soon, and will keep every working desktop going as long as possible. I am a programmer doing the application conversion, and I use Win XP on a 7-year old machine... (at work, at home I have Vista and Unbuntu)

Online Community For a Call Center?

justdaven When I worked Tech Support... (138 comments)

I found that we all had great input into fixing common problems that we ran into, which never made it into the documentation that was supplied by the company. (I worked for a contract company that handled support for a large computer manufacturer) We would go to each other for input. Folks from other call centers did not have access to us or we to them, and it would have made a better pool of knowledge, and made resolution time quicker. I think this is a good idea you have. Good luck with it!
