Space Thinker D: Part 11"See D, I told you I could get things my way"
"They put a collar on you Alex?"
"Yeah, to track my whereabouts for the duration of the punishment"
"On the Domicile they'd make us go into isolation chambers with nothing to do but lists of things to memorize for a punishment."
"Did they now?"
"...They said it was 'to make sure we learned something."
"Well, did you learn something? No, don't tell me what it is, just tell me if you did."
"Yes, I'd say he did" 32 piped in, somewhat disgruntledly as she had had to carry a heavy piece of luggage up the steps to the manor. "I administered it to him."
"Say, what's that thing on your arm?" Alex was actually looking past D at this point and really talking to 32 but meant the growth from part 9.
"That's what we thought we could ask you Mr. Alex. Do you have notes from your father or grandfather about biomachinery?"
"That statue gives me the creeps."
"D, that isn't a statue that's my grand... hey no don't"
Space Thinker D: Part 10"Mr. Alex, the board finds you guilty of withholding information from the Cor."
"Is there a way I could buy my way out of it?"
"We will decide that amongst ourselves. you are a rather valued client and a contributing member so that may work in your favor but your violations of the terms of service in your contract shall not go without punishment. Punishments tend to be severe."
The council of the board of directors huddled together and murmured as they worked at reaching a consensus.
"Ahem! Well Mr. Alex, in recognition of your family's years of loyalty to the cor, we have elected to minimize your punishment. You will not be kicked off the board."
"We are not finished yet."
"...You will not be kicked off the board. However, you will be placed under house arrest for a length of time."
"I won't be allowed to leave my estate?"
"Correct; provisions will be made to allow you to continue carrying out most of your affairs fr
Space thinker D: Part 9The Artifacts, D and 33-a were brought up to the Domicile.
She reported on the report of D's findings to 32.
"It seems to have information inside it which D is able to read. Sort of. Mr. Alex insisted that we should take it to his mansion and said it would be relevant to some of the things there."
32 thought for a moment about the implications of this.
"So then that doesn't follow with his earlier story of being just a wealthy con who lacks basic understanding of the technology his family made for us." Now it made sense why Alex wanted to make the request that he did.
"We don't know that yet. He is being detained at the moment and z is talking to him."
"Well how is D doing? The machine didn't make him sick or anything, did it?"
"Why do you always ask about him? Don't you think I did a good j..."
32 shot 33-a a look that said 'I am still in charge.'
"... Yes 32. Sorry. He had a bit of initial redness and
Space Thinker D: Part 833-a was not too happy.
"You guys are a bunch of dumbasses. If the artifact reads as bioactive and leaking microorganisms you could all be infected and you just infected us. I may need to call off the whole dig. This isn't going to look good to 32 or the supervisor."
"33-a, wait, before you do that,- we never assembled the three pieces. Also, our initial analysis reads that the bugs on the outside are nonpathogenic. We wanted to get some people to check the insides first before trying to reassemble the apparatus."
Alex wandered past the cordoned off area of the camp and stared at the artifacts intensely for a few moments then looked away from them. Much like there was something he may have recognized about them but was not saying.
"I could, if it isn't any trouble allow you to put this system back together on my estate D, 33-a."
"You know I can't allow you to do that because it is against Cor regulations."
"Ah, well, at least I tri
Space Thinker D: Part 7"Hey new guy, get your head in the game!"
"I'm the thinker, I'm supposed to help you guys"
"Pffft thinkers. 84_f you get a load of this guy?"
"Not yet 89_w. Hey man, you going to direct us here or what? Stop thinking about how much more important you probably think you are than us and get with the directing here. Oh, that isn't what you were thinking about? Look Mac (oh, D, that's your name), this is a cor company job. we've got to know what we're looking for. Start interpreting our data ok?"
The two diggers having said their peace, a chief hacker stepped forward.
"77_K reporting. Look man, do you have any idea what the people up top want us to find...? Cracking this old security won't be too tough, I've been practicing a lot."
D reflected for a moment. "They said this used to be a research hospital"
"Let me finish"
"alright 89_f, let the man finish."
"Continuing,... the records say that back i
Space Thinker D: Part 6"Okay D, I'm not exactly thrilled to be your field manager either, but just do what your job is from the file or whatever. I don't particularly care, if you mess up it isn't my problem." 33-a also grumbled a bit about having to mind the project, it not being fair because they were about the same age so what makes D special and how she'd rather be doing something else.
"So do I meet up with the team of workers now?"
"Okay, workers, we have an assignment today..."
"We know," said one of the archaeology diggers. "The cor gave us pamphlets already."
"Oh. Uh, this is my first time doing this."
"We kind of figured that."
"Look, are we going to work together as a team or not?"
At this point a hacker chimed in "Relax D, we know what we're supposed to do already, you just need to manage us a bit then turn in a report to her. The site is about 10-12 kilometers away from us. If you find something odd tell us but in the meantime just tr
We Need FeminismWe, a global society, need feminism.
We do not need bigotry or intolerance. We don't need to promulgate the notion that one sex matters more than the other, or that every personal slight is a result of sexism or a failure to understand the opposite sex. Men are not Martians and women weren't raised in the toxic fumes of Venus, although our brains and bodies are shaped from the embryonic stage by differing hormonal gradients.
We need to look at a world that thinks of "effeminate" as a slur and say, this is not a thing to stand for. We need to ask why women can buy boyfriend-cut clothing from designer brands, but a man in a skirt needs to explain himself. Why women and men are equally likely to coauthor studies with same-sex peers, but women are far less likely to collaborate with underlings.
We live in a world where a woman who works is neglecting her children and a stay at home man is lazy. Women never rescue the man in a Bollywood movie, never defeat the bad guy without help. Actresse
A Kids' Guide to BullyingI was bullied a lot as a kid and this is just what I have noticed over time. Note I grew up/went to school in the suburbs so I have NO idea what inner city schools are like. Also the internet wasn't very big yet when I was a kid so I don't really know much about cyber-bullying.
1. Don't let it get to you.
I know that's easier said than done, but if they don't think it's getting to you, they do eventually stop. Besides, if it isn't true, it shouldn't matter. If it is true, you should probably re-evaluate your priorities.
2. Going to the teacher isn't always the best idea.
Sounds like a good idea; unfortunately, while it might be a good idea in the short-term, it might end up screwing you in the long-term. This one's kinda tricky because it can be hard to judge when you SHOULD tell a teacher/parent. If it's actually endangering your life then by all means tell them, but if it's just petty teasing just brush it off.
3. If it isn't true, it shouldn't b
A Comparison of Windows Versus Linux ArchitectureA Basic Comparison of Windows and Linux Atchitecture.
Note: this is not meant to be an in-depth explanation of either Windows or Linux or their respective architectures. Rather is is meant for people with little knowledge of either, or who only have knowledge of one, to understand why these two are so different (and I admit to some bias in favor of the Linux concepts over the Microsoft one.)
If you know Windows, then you may have a general understanding of most of this information, but even if you are a long time Windows user, you may not know much about the internals of how it works, so this may help you.
Microsoft Windows originated from the DOS operating system. DOS stands for Disk Operating System and was meant as a method for allowing computers to access larger amounts of data than could be easily stored on RAM or ROM chips. Windows grew from DOS as the Graphical User Interface pioneered mainly by Apple became more and more prevalent.
In it's most basic sense, Windows
My Top Ten Favorite Linux AppsMy Favorite Linux Apps and Add-ons
Here are a few items that I normally install on any Linux Computer I use...
1) Compiz... This Comnpositing Window manager gives you so many cool effects and ways to tweak your system that I feel lost without it. While it is only suitable for fairly recent hardware, and works best with a good graphics card with a fast GPU and lots of dedicated RAM, once you meet those requirements, there's nothing else like it. It can be tricky to set it up, but there is a wealth of information online for nearly every distribution of Linux and how to install Compiz and get it working (assuming your distro didn't come with it already installed)
2) KWIN... a slightly more stable alternative to Compiz. It does not have as many effects available, but it does have the most popular ones. It can be a bit more stable and proably uses a little less computer resources than Compiz as well.
3) Cairo-dock... a wonderful, very customizable dock bar that can be used in many ways and
La Edad No Importa Si Hay Amor
Ambos tenían vidas muy distintas, caminos diferentes, sabían que su destino no era estar juntos, si tal vez encontrarse, pero jamás mezclarse.

Por otro lado el debido a que tenía 18 años y ya había salido de la escuela media , y ya era mayor de edad lo que significaba que tenía que decidir su futuro , ¿que quería hacer o ser en la vida?, tenía planeado entrar al ejército y quedarse allí como también tenía planeado poder ir a la universidad, pero aún no estaba seguro de lo que haría.

Capitulo 11 Los Boletos de la Gala
Nos situamos en la Granja Sweet Apple Acres, perteneciente a la familia Apple, podemos ver a Applejack, Rank, Twilight con una gran cosecha de Manzanas y a un pequeño Dragon mas conocido como Spike rechazando manzanas, buscando la indicada
Spike: No, No, No, No *tira otra manzana*
Applejack: Gracias a ambos por ayudarme, le aposte a Bic Macintosh que tendria estas goldies para el almuerzo, si gano el ira a la calle vestido con una falda de su abuela, jajajajajaja
Twilight: Es todo un placer Applejack, me alegra que la meta sea el almuerzo, todo este trabajo me abrio el apetito

Twilight: Rank tiene razon, tu estuviste descansando en mi lomo todo el tiempo
Spike: exacto!!, ustedes 3 tardaron tant
Frankenstein tiene rostro de vidrio.Contrario a la opinión generalizada sobre la “muerte de la televisión”, el viejo armatoste sigue demostrando el alcance de su dominio. Hace algunos meses, el portal CTS online publicó un texto de Toby Miller donde el autor ilustra la aún fuerte influencia de la televisión en los espectadores: menciona, por ejemplo, el incremento del 8% de los suscriptores a televisión vía satélite o vía cable; además, anota el número promedio de horas que cada habitante de Gran Bretaña dedica a la televisión, trece en total.
La T.V. aún convence personas, vende productos, modifica resultados (¿por qué el actual presidente de la república se casó con una actriz de telenovelas?), por lo tanto resulta importante poner bajo la lupa la nueva reforma en telecomunicaciones recientemente aprobada por el congreso nacional, así como las leyes secundarias recién p
Ranting Time: Unwatch a deviant, care to explainYeah, I bet you read title of this rant and you will probably think is "what the fuck dude?", but let talk first. Have you ever had a watcher unwatched you and never explain why they never explained why they did it? Well, you're not the only one who have the same problem. You know they unwatch you because they come up some bullshit excuse to pass that on as an explanation when it goes even further than that. They watch you for days, weeks, or even months and then........ you see one watchers count dropped and then one of your watchers have unwatched you. You might want to ask them this simple question "Why did you unwatched me?" and they will give you and they will give you an explanation, but if they any excuse that is bullshit like "You're not interesting to me." and "You keep spamming my message inbox." when it goes a little bit deeper, they might as well not watch them at all. Sometimes unwatching the person can hurt his or her feeling. So here is the advice people, either stick wi
Top 5 Video Games That Would Make Good TV ShowsFace it, Hollywood failed us when it comes to videogame adaptations, however, there has been TV shows that have been based of games that been faithful to the source materials, at least more so than the movies have been so here are my top 5 picks for videogames that would make for great TV shows, some might already have one or two adaptations here and there but they're either not that good or were went under the radar for some so lets get started.
05. Darkstalkers- This severely underrated game would be perfect for a show, in fact it did have an animated series and an OVA anime in the 90's but nothing real special, which is sad because back when I did my Idea Spot for a crossover with this and X-Men I said that there was a lot of similarities between Darkstalkers and X-Men, you can make it like X-Men but on the road, as for main characters, the obvious choices are either Morrigan or Felicia and Jon Talbain, and I would go with the latter due to the fact that setting aside the tidal wave
Her CatalystAs she walks through the maelstrom, the words trace upon the tips of her fingers and press into the stone. Every brick, every crack in the concrete, every crossed and angular stroke in reds and blacks and oranges. The drips of the gasoline pool around the base of her boots, slosh as she steps over the burst pipes and the rubble.
So much rubble. So little outcry. The silence of the city grates on her eardrums and the mantras she'd been forced to memorize. The Seers demanded they observe thirteen years of recitation before they attempt to weave their first World together.
But who other than the Seers can claim the incantations that knot the skeins they twist and pull on like reins hold fast? When have any of the Sisters recorded the visions they traced upon space-time and recited them, left them open for critique and discussion and debate?
Which is why she walks through the chalky soot of the smashed city around her. This all
