Why do you hate free enterprise? NOW you think the government should intervene with all its petty regulators making rules about health care and how a corporation should be allowed to choose its customers.
The boards of directors of those airlines are the ones to make those decisions. They are a...

You're right. I was only addressing the financial aid aspect. I should have just said something like, "Once you're accepted, you're in, that's it". Smart is part of it, but not all of it, but my point was that smarter doesn't get you more financial aid at Harvard, needing more does.

[quote]My understanding of what Harvard is doing, is different from this. I believe they are dedicating more endowment money to kids who are smart and can handle the academics, but who are poor and cannot afford to attend, who are smart enough to get in, but maybe not smart enough to get a full acad...

Don't say, "doing your wife."
Seriously, the big thing they want to know from an interview is how well you would get along with people there. Are you a complainer, do you say inappropriate things, are you going to carry your weight or make other people carry you, do you give off a creepy vibe -- ...

There were a lot of rattlers around the subdivision when I lived in San Antonio (a long damn time ago). I came real close twice, and my dog got bitten once. The vet said, "she'll either live or not - nothing I can do". Her leg swelled up and turned black, and she hid in a quiet room and didn't ea...

So, basically, the official answer to 'raise or lower?' is, "well, raise it unless that might not work, otherwise lower it, except you might want to keep it level, instead."

Sennheiser HD 280 Pro
around-the-ear, very comfortable, sound great, excellent passive external sound attenuation, and right around $100.
I've had mine for years -- they may have a different model in the same niche, now. Whatever they call it, it's what you want.

I don't know anything about 8 vs 7, and honestly I haven't personally seen an MTU problem in years, but that set of symptoms -- ping works, DNS works, browse doesn't -- set off some dim and dusty memories. That's also something in the TCP stack (and local infrastructure) that could plausibly be dif...

I can't give you any real help at this point but in case it happens again, ping successful but no browse sounds like it might be a MTU issue.
