| O-T Lounge|| re: Is Mexico considered a 3rd world or developed country? - MamouTiger65 on 7/31/14 at 12:12 pm|
The original meaning of the term came from the cold war.
US and allies were First World.
Soviets and their allies were Second World.
Those not aligned with either side were Third World.
It has come to be used to describe poor counties since then though.
ETA: Mexico is third world by defin...

I found the first 6 weeks to be the hardest. There is always a new challenge though. Just when you get through one phase there is a whole new issue you have to start dealing with. Mine is now walking and trying to feeding himself. It is fun to watch, but it means he can get into a lot more trouble a...

ATM's have cameras that film every transaction. They can pull up the camera for the time that you said you were making a deposit. Between that and the count for that ATM being off the next day, I'm sure they will be able to fix the issue....

You may also want to consider the type of single strength you're going to get with a hot spot. If it's not fast enough you may get a lot of buffering or poor image quality. Like the last poster said, you can get a lot of games just with an antenna....

I've never paid for any of these services. I'm assuming some capabilities must be limited, but I haven't ...

Regular gas is currently $3.16 and Premium is $3.40. It is consistently lower than surrounding gas stations. They recently were also certified as a top tier fuel station. I believe the fuel comes from Marathon across the river and they add detergent on site. They also have an attendant working keepi...

I have no doubt this is being used to raise money and energize the base. I'm sure more executive orders will be coming that try to force the Republicans into impeachment hearings. It would do a lot to motivate Democrats to donate and vote. It also creates another media distraction going into electio...

There are a lot of companies that do custom development, Sparkhound, Antaries, Tilt and Envoc to name a few. A lot of programmers including myself pick up side work too. I guess it all depends on how large of a project this is, how fast you need it and how much you are willing to pay....
