30th not 1st
In my haste I said Ballmer was the first employee of Microsoft - he was actually the 30th

Quantum of Solace was for me a complete dog of a movie.
Bond villains need to have an evil plan. As you say setting up a utility monopoly in Bolivia doesn't quite cut the mustard. It was the Diet Coke of evil master plans - just one calorie, not evil enough. (With thanks to Dr. Evil)
It wasn't evil enough or big enough. A water monopoly would have been fine - IF it covered the entire world. But Nicaragua*? Please!
Paris would have made a better Bond villain.
*I don't even care what minor country it was.
I am a Dalton fan. I personally feel he was an excellent Bond and his two movies were both better than later Moores and all of Brosnans bar Goldeneye.
He played a Bond that was far closer to Fleming's character.
Was he my favourite Bond - no. Was he in the best Bond film - no.
He certainly wasn't the wurst* though.
*Oktoberfest - everybody drink!
I don't see any benefit in these "booth babes". I think the Chinese are doing the right thing. Who would have imagined the Chinese teaching us something?
This sort of carry on is demeaning to women. I used to buy PCFormat magazine and that went through a spell of having a model in a swimsuit pouting with a piece of tech on each cover. If I want to find out about tech stuff I don't want a "booth babe" getting in the way. It just insults my intelligence.
Hmm....contractors will often earn twice what the local permies will earn. (Nevermind the guys in India)
Why do they moan at least 3.4* times as much as the permies?
It isn't unusual to see a guy performing a 60k a year perm job and earning 120k a year as a contractor - plus all the nice tax breaks.

Am I alone in only having used Megaupload for legit purposes? I have never downloaded anything ilegally from it. In fact I have never even seen anything available on there.
What I have done is downloaded lots of apps hosted there by the developers. I have downloaded lots of mods for games like Skyrim that have been hosted there.
In short there seems to be an awful lot of perfectly acceptable uses for megaupload.
There are only 3 roles in this and other MMOs. They are often referred to as "the holy trinity"
1)Tank - Damage Soaker who stops big bad guys hitting the DPS and Healer.
2)DPS - Damage Dealers
3)Healer - Who, er, heals.
That is it. There is no ranged type. There is no force lightning type.
In this game you have ranged and melee tanks. I personally play as a healer. My healer is a Sith Sorcer who chucks lightning around*. He is still just a healer.
*If you only knew the POWER of the dark side.
