Ubuntu at Toyota

Filed under: — Sven @ 17:02 GMT

I’m waiting a few hours at the Thompson Toyota, my Prius is getting some minor work done to it to pass state inspection, it still takes a few hours. They have a wireless connection to the Internet, but even though last time I connected without problems this time my PII Debian system was not happy. So I checked out the bank of beat up Gateways with vagabond keyboards in the corner. I wiggle the mouse, and up pops the Ubuntu Heron! Wow! I can tell from the scribbled out tag that these are likely hand me downs from Thompson Lexus, I bet them bastards over there now have Vista. I expect that they just didn’t want to pay for Licenses, but I can do some work!

The neat part is that other people are actually using them. By default there are no icons on the desktop, so some people can’t find Firefox right away, but they find it. The card games seem most popular thought, at least today. I guess Ubuntu really is a user friendly system.

Some people may not get health insurance so they have choice to pay for the really expensive prescription drugs or research how to buy generic medications online. Generic drugs are as safe as other branded meds. Only reputable pharmacy produces them such as Cipla. Having this in head one can buy synthroid uk in generic online drugstore including free shipping anywhere in the world

Acceptable Bigotry?

Filed under: — alice @ 18:18 GMT

As of today, Sunday 3rd August 2008, Google reports that there are 981,000 Web sites on which Barack Obama is “accused,” “suspected” and “thought to be” Muslim.

He is, of course, a Christian. However, IMO, that fact is totally, utterly and absolutely irrevelant.

What deeply disturbes me is that none of the news reports/sites/comments I’ve found never even comes near to apologising to members of the Islamic Faith for the obnoxious, overt, bigoted slurs against them.

What would be our reactions to similar comments about our being “suspected,” of being Roman Catholic, Evangelical Chirstian, Jewish, Hindi, Taosit, Bhuddist or any other Faith?

Is this sort of thing just? Is it fair? Is it respectful of others?

I think not. For shame.

Certain people can`t afford medical insurance and thus forced to pay for the expensive prescription pills or look after cheap generic drugs online. Generics are potent and safe as other branded counterparts. Only reputable pharmacy produces them such as Sunrise remedies. With this in mind one may buy topamax uk in generic online pharmacy with free shipping worldwide
