sadly, only 35% of eligible voters (?) vote even in the biggest elections, and less than 20% in some minor ones, yet 99% complain bitterly about the results! voting (hopefully being an informed voter) is the ONLY constitutional obligation imposed of the citizens,and among your most valuable rights. ...

Humans effect the enviroment in so many (often unexpected) ways, rarely for the good of other species, and when some plant, animal, insect or virus florishes because of our actions we decide it's pest (invasive specie) and try to wipe it out. :?

all electronics work better, and last longer at lower temps. While modern processors can survive 75ºC for a while they're much happier below 40ºC since tempature rise can be nearly instant (in human terms 1-4 seconds is too fast to deal with) having as much 'cushion' as possible seems the best idea....

So what it comes down to is Bush and Cheney are either so out of touch that they refuse to believe the truth,
or
that they failed to inform the commission about the irrefutable evidence during their secret testimony and the entire rest of the intelligence community is wrong :roll:

Correct! Shipping is about $19.95 but the disk is free. Don't toss the old disk, cause occasionally they ask for something as proof of purchase, but mostly all the ask for is is the CD key plus shipping and billing Info
