    Re: IPhone vs. Blackberry?

    Though not much of a concern for Hawaii residents, cold winter weather can make it nigh impossible for the gloved set to fiddle with their iPhones. What to do? Get a proper stylus, of course:...

    Re: Swine Flu

    That is one glaring point you were wrong on and are still wrong. Show us the documentation that the Spanish Flu of 1918 had a propensity to affect the young. And by "young" I'm sure you mean those...

    Re: Swine Flu

    Exactly how is the 2009 Swine Flu like the Spanish Flu of 1918, other than being of the same "H1N1" subtype? As MyopicJoe correctly stated, the Spanish Flu primarily killed off young adults while our...

    Re: Mortgage Nightmare and a Plea for Help

    I'm not sure how much help it would be at this stage of the game, but you could tell your friend to send letters of complaint to the state AG's office and the DCCA:

  5. Re: 1.9 Million Fine for Illegal Downloads of Songs

    It's amusing that you, who complained that I supposedly weakened my position on the RIAA decision by name calling are now resorting to making inane and hysterically shrill demands. "Gramps" is an...

    Re: I'm Back

    Welcome back, Gramps! Cyn was just saying last week that she missed you. HT lacks something when our favorite resident statesman isn't posting regularly.
  7. Re: 1.9 Million Fine for Illegal Downloads of Songs

    Actually, both my grandfathers have passed away. And both would have agreed with my assessment of FM, as neither of them suffered dismissive know-it-alls with a penchant for misrepresentation of any...
  8. Re: 1.9 Million Fine for Illegal Downloads of Songs

    I guess you're still having trouble following my posts. It's painfully obvious that "putting the scews on" is the consequence of the RIAA's actions, not their motivation. This indicates to me that...
  9. Re: 1.9 Million Fine for Illegal Downloads of Songs

    I never once said that the RIAA was pursuing the lawsuit out of spite or potential monetary gain. In fact, I agreed with you in my first bulleted point:

  10. Re: 1.9 Million Fine for Illegal Downloads of Songs

    Considering the hordes of attorneys retained by the RIAA, I'm sure they're aware they don't need to make any reservations as far as their rights to sue file sharers. Their decision to stop pursuing...
  11. Re: 1.9 Million Fine for Illegal Downloads of Songs

    Dang!

    And keep in mind the RIAA stopped suing individual "pirates" back in Dec/Jan. I guess they wanted to make a statement with a parting shot? So much for showing some retroactive love.

    Re: Palm Pre

    Mildly interesting that posters on sprintusers.com prefer another smartphone over the Pre more than 2 to 1. Even more interesting is Palm's Pre knowledge base where they admit "Short periods of time...

    Yes, you definitely want to have password protection for your network and encryption (at least WPA2).

    One of the first cookbooks I ever picked up came with my parents' Panasonic Genius microwave. This stuffed bell peppers recipe is quite similar to the one that came in that book. It was always a hit...
