Ron Paul getting some media attention

Here's a blog item from the Orange County Register's opinion blog, Orange Punch, which I think I'll just reproduce in toto:

"Ron Paul finally getting some media attention
August 31st, 2007 ·
From Steven Greenhut:
Republicans wish GOP presidential candidate Ron Paul, a U.S. representative from Texas who epitomizes the small-l libertarian philosophy similar to the one you read on the Register’s editorial pages, would go away. His principled limited-government stances (compared to Republicans’ solely rhetorical belief in limited government as they ratchet up the size of the welfare and security state) and opposition to this horrific and deceitful war embarrass them. The media has ignored Paul because he is not viewed as a “credible” candidate.
He is a longshot, but his campaign brings ideas into the mix, and he has attracted a boisterous following, especially online. National media outlets finally are noticing. Here is a CNN article, which includes this summary:
“Passengers on a plane leaving New York could see three words in 4-foot block letters painted on an East Village rooftop terrace as they ascended: GOOGLE RON PAUL.
“The entreaty to search the Internet for news of the Republican congressman from rural Texas is one of the more visible signs of enthusiasm from a do-it-yourself base of Web fans. Their support doesn’t show up in public opinion polls, but it’s unmatched among presidential candidates in its passion.”
And this is from the Wall Street Journal today:
“The iconoclastic ‘Dr. Paul’ is a libertarian advocate of minimalist government, a foe of the Federal Reserve and anything else not explicitly allowed by the Constitution, and perhaps the most antiwar candidate in the race. Thanks to the unprecedented number of early debates, he has been able to share the stage with his better-funded Republican establishment rivals.”
In an election that is dominated by statist politicians from both sides — including the noxious Giuliani and the hideous Hillary — it’s great to see a grassroots revolution take place."

And here is the link to the CNN article, which didn't make it through the copying process.

A computer registry is a Windows specific aspect of a computer. It contains information on just about everything a computer does. And cleaning it can certainly be a long and tedious project. Below are some things to consider for how to clean up computer registry with registry cleaner.

The first thing anyone should know about cleaning a registry is to not do it manually. Consider the fact that everything your computer does is on there, from web browsing to installed programs. So if a file gets deleted or replaced without knowing what it does, it could seriously damage the computer.

The alternative option is to use a registry cleaning program. But, before anything is done to the registry, a backup needs to be made (that way, if something is broken, it can be restored). Usually, third-party programs have a way of doing it themselves. For the ones that don't, there's a manual way to do it, using the Windows Registry Editor.

When using a third-party program, it's important to know which ones won't accidentally break the computer. Some programs can delete key registry items and cause more problems than they solve. As such, it's best to check either ZDNet, CNET, PC world, or PC magazine for the latest on helpful (and harmful) programs to use.

By cleaning up the registry, old (and even unused) registry items are removed, giving a little more space and a lot more processing power. Old registries, such as the ones from uninstalled files, usually connect to locations that don't exist or that can't be found, slowing down the computer. By removing them, the computer can focus on the task at hand.

Making a fire when camping has been a problem for hundreds of people. Flint is difficult to use, matches get wet or won't light, lighter runs out; even though civilized man has created many ways to start a fire, they all fail at some point, usually when they are needed the most. One simple yet powerful way to start a fire when camping or grilling is to have a Swedish Fire Steel. This small gadget was developed for the Swedish Department of Defense, hence the name. A metal key shaped "blade" is moved slowly over a rod made up of seven metals, chiefly magnesium alloy. The spark that is created is about 5500 degrees Fahrenheit. The Fire Steel is good for 12000 strikes allowing you to start a fire every day for thirty-five years if you want. The Fire Steel is just as easy to use as striking a match, making it perfect for all experience levels. It can also be used while wet so it is useful for winter camping or military personnel stationed all over the world. As one reviewer put it, "this is as close as you will ever get to starting a fire under water." There are currently three models of Swedish Fire Steels: the army model which is the largest at 3.75 inches, the scout model which is three-quarters of an inch shorter, and the mini model which is oddly enough the same size as the scout.

It would enable the removal nutrition from the marrow and creases of bones, soften root vegetables, into your diet to blindly lump all fish together as the paleo. The paleo, that you will never be more full and you wont believe how good you will feel.
