  1. I think every time we have an election it proves how broken our electoral system is. And lets be honest, it is... Con's got 1.8% more popular vote, and there for 16% more seats... something seems weird.

     

    There were a bunch of ridings in SK where if the liberal had been eliminated (STV) then the NDP might have taken the seats. But who knows. http://votelab.ca/results.php did an interesting experiment in STV, so might be interesting to watch what their results are (though no better than polls as they only have some 5025 samples).


  2. That's a good question. The honest answer is that it really depends on what you are doing. Quad core give the machine the ability to do more things at once. The clocks run a little slower, which may or may not mean it does things slower (clock speeds are a lie... it's like assuming a car with a higher rpm limit is faster, there is just more to it than that). The reason "what" matters is precisely because the performance comes from parallel, not single thread execution. Most applications these days are good at backgrounding tasks, the OS will take advantage of that and run them on different machines. This is going to show if you do any graphics editing, video, or audio. In general day to day (word processing, email, web) you might not see any boost at all.


  3. This weekend I bought a 2000 Nissan Xterra... I must destroy the planet to enjoy it (I bought it to be able to get in to more remote spots to hike).

     

    Today I bought a radiator for said Xterra, because it has a crack in it's (and I won't pay $600 for the shop to replace it when it is 4 bolts).


  4. It's pretty good... but I really feel it's a little to literal in places. I certainly like the open an close, but the whole "put a man on the moon" bit seems to miss the figurative part of the statement for me.

     

    Anyway, keep it up, thanks for sharing.


  5. I've had Bible verses in my signature for little while now, well before I posted in this thread. So what's wrong or funny about that?

     

    P.S. I did notice this... nothing to see here, move along.


  6. To be honest, I don't really have an issue with it. I can't even reasonably ask you to tone it back because you're not over the top with it.

     

    I can't say I like your tone, but hey, it's the internet and we don't have to like each other.

     

    So, lets call this argument dead and continue as we will. In that vein, post what ever quotes you feel important to share, people don't really have to read them if they don't find them agreeable.


  7. I don't play to many games on my phone. Lots of people seem to like "Flight Control"... The path making games get old to me after a while.

     

    I usually just look at what is going for free to see if there is anything worth while.

     

    As for productivity, what do you mean?
