4/30    In Sims Open for Business, how do you promote your employees? One
        of my employees has over 7 points (5 medals, 2 with gold) so
        I should be able to promote her, but none of the GUI options would
        let me do that. BTW I'm running a home biz, not on the community
        lot. Does that matter?

4/24    In the movie "Red Eye", the Russian terrorists used a sophisticated
        optical targetted SAM to shoot into a specific hotel room to
        assassinate a very important man. How much of that SAM capability
        is reality, and how much of the damage is close to reality?
        \_ The guidance system?  Definitely.  The damage?  depends--a lot
           of SAMs have proximity fuses as airplanes are pretty fragile.
           Laser- and optically-guided anything are sort of old hat. -John

           same thing, but haven't looked into that yet.  Ideally, I'd like
           to use frm, as my scripts use it, but this is certainly not a
           top priority at the moment, with all the instability. -op

4/11    I have 2 normalized 4D vectors v1 and v2 which are linearly independant
        How do I find a length and angle preserving (forgot the terminology)
        transformation which maps the vector v1 onto v2?  I know the Rodrigues
        rotation formula for 3D but that doesn't seem to apply.  I looked at
        http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SO(4 but most of it went over my head.
        \_ Most of this post went over my head.
        \_ If you are talking about projection of v1 onto v2, the forumula
           would be ((v1 . v2) / (v2 . v2) )*v2.  If this isn't what you are
           looking for please clarify,  Also, this has no dependance on the
           vectors being normalized.
           \_ No I don't mean projection.  And I know how to use the Graham-
              Schmidt process to find basis vectors for the nullspace.  What
              I am looking for is a matrix which is an isometric transform from
              v1 to v2.

4/3     What's the difference between respect and formality? I was trying
        to convince someone that they're different, and I realized I
        didn't quite know myself. Thanks.
        \_ So when I need my hobby and call my provider for my ATF BBW
           escort and she gave me a great GFE the whole night and finish
           it off with a great blue jay and I end up tipping her for a great
           time with 4:20, is the 4:20 a result of respect or formality?
        \_ Formality is adhering to an outside standard, which may involve
           genuine or artificial respect.
           Respect is about giving genuine props to another person/thing,
           which may be from fear or admiration.
           Respect is about taking someone/something seriously, whether out
           of admiration or fear.
           formality 1 : compliance with formal or conventional rules :CEREMONY
        \_ I'm not sure what you're asking but respect is something that's
           felt and formality is something that's observed/performed. So
           maybe that's what you're getting at.
        \_ Formality dictates that the gentlemen open the car door for his
           escort for the evening.  Respect probably has little part in it.
           \- Formality is about adherence to forms/standards/conventions/norms
              the idea of canonicalness etc. Respect has to do with opinion
              or regard. Although I suppose sometime they are used in a bit
              of a gret way [he repected their conventions, or the "formal"
              pronounce was used to show respect. etc]. a letter to your
              of a grey way [he respected their conventions, or the "formal"

3/10    My freezer has a very effective 'anti-frost' unit.  My problem is that
        I typically only need ice cubes maybe once every month or 2, and when
        I go to use them, I find they have half-sublimated away and I have
        a tray full of half-size ice cubes.  Short of disabling the anti-frost
        feature, is there anything I can do to stop ice cubes from shrinking?

        not coming off. Will white vinegar work better? Thanks.

           apply it to paper towels and stick the wet paper towel to the
           surface.  the idea is to let the vinegar sit on the spot for a
           while and let the acid do its thing.  keep in mind your shower
