Re: What happened to Amelia Earhart ?

Looks like the expedition is over - Nautilus has left the island, heading southeast, I think returning to Samoa. I really wonder if they found anything (or if they can keep it secret until October.

Re: HOT HOT HOT

I live in the Dallas, TX area. So far, we've had a pretty mild summer - no 100°F (38°C) days yet, though it has been close - unlike last summer where we had many days over 100°F. What I really hate is when my air-conditioner fails - it always seems to pick the hottest day of the year and late evenin...

The following layout has been working quite well for me: steve@steve-Z97X ~ $ sudo parted -l [sudo] pas...
