In the business press the american federal deficit is usually discussed. However, I have never seen a good analysis of how balancing the budget will affect the US domestic economy as well as the global economy.

My gut feeling is tellling me that it is going to be bad but I admit to being clueless on the subject. Such overspending during the last few good years is a bit astounding to me.

For the last five years or so I have found myself willing to learn a third language. Too bad that I lacked that ambition in high school when I more or less slept through the Spanish lessons, but I guess that you are never too old to start anew.

Since I studied Spanish in high school and since I made a trip in latin america for two months last year, I have decided that I want to improve my Spanish. When travelling I could get by on my Spanish, even though it is admittably horrible. But the Arg...

Until this day I have only run Linux on old outdated hardware, primarily for experimenation or for server use. But today I decided to install it on an old but relatively speedy laptop to test the desktop experience. The laptop has a 2Ghz P4 processor, 512MB of ram and a 32MB ATI card. Installing Ubuntu on older hardware before have been difficult so I was a bit weary of spending my entire day of installing it on my laptop.

I have looked around but I can not find how to remove a blog site on joeuser? Perhaps I'm just blind.
