Congratulating someone for spending a thousand dollars and wanting it back. Got it. I came to my senses and understand the concept now. Your right it was not that difficult, thanks for helping me through this senseless period of my life.
Not so obvious to some, apparently. Congratulations on getting it wrong, again. I was not congratulating him for spending a thousand dollars and wanting it back. I was congratulating him for regaining his common sense, which if had been in place previously, would have prevented him from spending $1,000.

As is American Psycho, Silence of the Lambs, Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs (kind of unfair, there), The Godfather, Fight Club, Die Hard, etc.
Diehard and Fight Club are based on books? Interesting, didn't know that. Might have to try the Fight Club book...

People also say Jaws is MUCH better than the book by Peter Benchley.
Jaws the novel is not about the shark. It's about the people and their relationships. I don't know if I could say it was better, but it is definitely entirely different from the film.

? It would seem to be obvious that I'm congratulating him on the return of his senses, hence he had none at the time. The concept is not difficult.

Is Windows Update fucking up for anyone else on Windows 7? From the moment I woke my machine today, the svchost.exe process that handles Windows Update was chewing up a full core of my CPU. This wasn't unusual, but it usually stops after a few minutes. Three hours later it was still going. Using Process Hacker to inspect it, indeed shows it's Windows Update doing this. I checked my other Win7 machine and it's doing the same thing. I tried to go ahead and install the updates, but it sits on downloading 0% and never goes anywhere, all while this process sits eating up CPU time.

I tried resetting Windows Update by stopping the Windows Update service, deleting everything from C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution and checking for updates, but it has now been sitting there checking for updates for half an hour, still chewing up CPU time.
Interesting you would mention this now, just yesterday I looked at the pending Windows Updates but I didn't install any of them because they had all just been released. I always like to wait at least a week (preferably longer) before installing any updates. My usage profile is pretty low risk, so even a significant bug can most likely wait for confirmation that MS hasn't totally screwed something up...

Oh and no, I am not seeing this behavior.

I have no idea where mine is, or my birth cert, for that matter...
I had what turned out to be a legally insufficient copy of my birth certificate. Found out when I applied for my passport. Fortunately, it wasn't too tough to get a legally sufficient one from a state agency in the state of my birth (New York).

For whatever it is worth, I was just curious on your age, I wasn't attempting to be critical in any way. And frankly, I'm more impressed you'd pursue it at 41 than say 19. I hate school. Somehow I managed to finish a two year degree, and have investigated finishing my bachelor's multiple times. But in the end I've always not done anything even though it would have been helpful in potential employment situations. That's how much I hate school...

Yeah, even as a cycling fan I have never understood the attraction to this "game". Whatever trips your trigger I guess... *shrug*

Yes, evolution is likely to continue. However. due to modern technologies it is unlikely to bring about changes which will endanger our civilization anytime soon. I'd think more likely is something on the scale of 2007's "I am Legend". In attempting to modify a virus to make it "cure" a problem, it instead turns around and wipes us out. Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying I think humans are the pinnacle of intelligent life in the universe -- but I am saying I don't think we'll lose our dominance on this planet in the foreseeable future...

Why assume 'modern man' is the final species when evolution historically demonstrates a pattern otherwise?
Why assume otherwise? Sure, we might get wiped out by a virus or an asteroid, but I don't see any reason to assume that will happen either.

You can't travel at the speed of light, but there's nothing that says you can't bypass it. Everything from warp bubbles to folding space to string theory and quantum entanglement are just the beginning. I believe it's fully possible. Simply that man won't survive long enough to get there.
It might be possible, unfortunately even if it is possible it is extremely unlikely it will be discovered in our lifetimes. Which is definitely the single largest disappointment of my life. As to whether we'll survive long enough as a species to reach that point, is certainly debatable. Personally, even though I won't live to see it, I like to hope we can make it.

The short answer is no one knows, and that it would probably have complex and far reaching effects, some good and probably mostly bad...
Thank you for a well written, reasonable response -- they are so rare in this subject...

As they say "the book is better than the movie".
The lone exception I am aware of is The Destroyer movie, ie.. "Remo Williams: The Adventure Begins" I only read the first couple of books after seeing the movie. Later I talked with someone who had read them all and agreed the books were lousy.

We probably dont need another Galactica.
Yeah, I'd have to agree with that. It was amazing how good the 2004 reboot was, I highly doubt it can be redone again as well.
