you should look into a good script writing program! Final Draft, Scrivener, etc are very nice for professional writers. Both can output word very professionally.

That's RIGHT next door to Travis Air Force Base. It is hardly surprising that they noticed.

South Korea Plans Hashtag-Inspired Skyscraper

seringen Re:I applied (117 comments)

Well, it is Bjarke Ingels Group, and they are well known as one of the most ridiculous and craven of architecture firms. He's been pining to do a huge asian project forever. His brand of thinking-free post modernity shouldn't reflect too poorly on architects or postmodernity or anyone with half a clue. He's popular because he has some hilarious branding...

Is It Time For Hacker Scouts?

seringen Re:We already have an obesity problem (186 comments)

You can teach them the principles of orienteering through an online class with online test, but it's definitely not orienteering! My old scoutmaster would take us out at night with a compass, get us lost, and have us figure out how to get home. that has been a very important life skill and something that would be impossible to do online. Nowadays people are hopeless without GPS, it is shocking and frankly bothers me.

I still generally agree with you, but teaching someone how to read the outside environment is a wonderful tool and has literally saved my life on a couple of occasions.

11.6" Netbooks Face Off

seringen a netbook? (238 comments)

11.6" and only five hours of battery life for the "clear" winner?

i guess it's the cheapskate route for people who really want a 13 inch macbook, but don't need bluetooth or wireless n.

i personally think it shouldn't be called a netbook if you really can't use it all day without carrying around a charger.

Why Isn't the US Government Funding Research?

seringen I'm a political economist (599 comments)

All i can say is that I cry myself to sleep every night. I don't care what administration it is, we are flushing money down the same pit. A lot of people are going to be very rich because of all the give aways going down a black hole. Few people in washington even remotely know what they are doing.

I'm sure it's the end of the world. God forbid you have to buy a last generation macbook pro for the same amount of money. Thanks for the voice of reason! I tremble with sadness over your loss.
