Photoshop was originally a Mac program, and still runs on Mac; there's also the GIMP. Most of the other software you mentioned have other, mostly better equivalents on Mac and Linux (uTorrent?? There are literally hundreds of torrent clients for Linux). In fact, most are copies of software which ori...

I really don't know what Windows software you can call "good" that doesn't exist on either Mac or Linux or both. MS Office?? Come on! It's a piece of junk people have been tolerating for years because they convinced themselves it was necessary (it's not; I rarely touch an office suite, not even for ...

It really depends on your screen. I find most screens really bother my eyes. I haven't been able to read e-books (I'd always print them out) until I got my MacBook Pro. Considering the large quantity of programming related material I read in an average week, it's helped me save both trees and a lot ...

But I read the original version when I was a kid: "The Power of Positive Thinking" by Norman Vincent Peale. Or "Self-Mastery Through Conscious Autosuggestion " by Émile Coué...

It's a REALLY old idea, and no "Secret" at all. It's also BS.

I tend to prefer Thom Hartmann's take on Libertarianism: Conservatism for people who want to get laid and smoke dope. It's really just an excuse to be selfish. Nothing more. Oh, and as for that so-called "free" market: never seen one. Can't really judge something which has never existed, now can we?...

"The Origins of Totalitarism" by Hannah Arendt. Get it. Read it.

Agreed about the flame wars issue. There's no real need for that, especially here. But based on my own history, I can't be too judgmental about other people going a little overboard about what is probably, unfortunately, their only source of self-esteem. Not to mention the nastiness that goes on. If...

I'd also like to point out that most aspies who have this arrogance about them are of the younger variety... I was pretty insufferable until I hit my 30s myself...

A lot of aspies have only had their intelligence to be proud of. Many of us were "geeks" or "nerds" in high school; we got beaten up or teased about our intelligence on a daily basis.

Least people can do is allow us this little bit of self-congratulation...

I'd have to cross a third of the Atlantic, then cross the entire U.S.


Count me out

I'm 41. If Wikipedia had existed when I was young, I'd never have set foot outside!

I quite like Metal, but most of the singers you've mentioned get on my nerves, even when (as in the case of Tate and Dickinson) I really like the band. Tim "Ripper" Owens Rob Halford John Arch Geoff Tate Warrel Dane (first album with Sanctuary) Ian Gillan ("Child in Time"-greatest song ever) James R...
