Max level is a secret and different for each person,
Definitely would like to pull a Rumpelstillskin and wake up in a long time from now and look at what is thought historically of our time. A good 150 years or so, maybe more. Not to mention to see what happens with the upward tech curve...

I use ABP and if I search for "autorepair" at Google there are two sections presented as "results". The top section is clearly localized, are those simply "smart" results based on Google divining my zip code based on my IP? Or are those business who paid to get preferred results?

Normally, I wouldn't bother posting something like this here. But because it annoyed me so much, and it seems like maybe this wasn't intended to be public knowledge, I give you this:

If you a Chrome user looking to return to the more compact menu style, for now you can use this tag on your shortcut.

--force-fieldtrials="NewMenuStyle/Compact2/"

from what i read, they actually got an NTSB official to confirm the names. turns out it was an intern, probably a professional troll on the internet.
Or they didn't understand his sacarsm, "Uh, yeah sure, those are the pilots' names."

I was just in the book store yesterday looking at the magazine stand thinking, "I'm surprised there are still so many PC related magazines in print."

League of Legends has been on my "I should try that someday" list for a while now. Just never quite seem to get around to it...

Mildly interesting to see the last server I was active on (Area 52) is on the list for depopulation. If I remember right -- it was Horde heavy when I was there (by a large factor), wonder if that's changed...

Good luck on the job situation, Prez. I need another ten years before I can leave the rat race. Being in your situation is pretty much the only thing I ever worry about, when I worry. Which I try to do as little of as possible.

So you're equating using a free service as the same as paying for something you don't want? Yeah...ok. Rolleyes
Uh... that is their business model. You're going to hold their business model against us?

If Google owned the Xbox do you think for a second they'd be trying to force the Kinect on people with their upcoming 180? Hell no.
Why not? They forced me to use their new menu style in Chrome which is designed to be used on tablets and phones -- which makes it terrible for me on my PC. Google is not much better than any other corporation, it's their way or the highway.

While I suspect you're correct, I don't get it. Where do they spend this "cred" they are getting?

On another topic, fuck Google and the horse they rode in on for removing the ability to not use their "new" menu design in Chrome starting sometime earlier today. I AM NOT USING A TABLET!
