Hal has had many, many, many relationships with beautiful women all over the world, so he is in fact, not gay. Not that there's anything wrong with that.

Ok, lets say for instance, you have the three names in columns A, B, and C and we are going to merge the data to column D. What we ne...

Well, i'm surprised they are still using DPI - that is actually an old term that used to apply to everything from the resolution to the output. Specifically, DPI refers to a printer which uses 4 to 6 colors, depending on the printer. Since there is a small amount of colors, the printer will mix the ...

Well, I'm no engineer, but I believe that with fully articulated rotor (3 blade) helicopters, a big risk is ground resonance. IGE being at a lower altitude, the angle of attack is reduced and the reduced induced flow carries the hazard of the helicopter touching the ground, and the vibrations caused...
