Re: What is a gas-powered computer?

I do this all the time when we have a blackout. The computer is on a UPS, but not the other electronics. It is an inverter generator, but everybody seems happy playing together.

Re: What is a gas-powered computer?

How about those freaky Boston Scientific robotic animals that run. They ues gas engines to power the hydraulics and probably generate electricity for onboard control computers.

Re: Can we please get rid of this already (aka don't forget to "spring ahead" this weekend)

I like DST on the summer solstice, I like standard time on the winter solstice. I reserve the right to grumble when we switch, but the reality is that the switch is a consequence of my preferences.

Re: FBI: Most Wanted (CBS) -- S: Julian McMahon -- From EP Dick Wolf

Agree. The criminals in "Most Wanted" don't seem as bad as the ones in the normal "FBI," at least last week.

Re: When does the decade end?

Look, the monk who started the AD thing screwed the pooch. Per Bible, Herod died in 4 BC, and Jesus, per Bible, was born before that. 1AD is just some random year, and we have invented ZERO since the...

Re: Survivor Season 39 Full Cast Revealed

At the rate this season is going, the final tribal is going to be a herd of goats, as the "cool kids" turn on each other. It will only take a goat revolt to vote off the last "cool kid."

Re: FBI (CBS) -- Season 2 Thread -- From EP Dick Wolf

At first, yeah. Then I thought if she had just run that way and they were hot on her tail, the lights would have clicked on for the sleeper agent. At least for the FBI person inpursuit. I can see...

Re: Dilemma: Thief at the Workplace Puts all Jobs at Risk... What Would You Do ?

You tried talking to him. I'd rat his ass out with video proof. The school's solution could be to fire you all and start over or subcontract to 3rd party.
