I would recommend that you find an industry or company that you really want to work for, then just get any job with them and work your way up. Don't just rely on job ads, go out and find those companies you like and try to get a foot in the door. It's your interest, enthusiasm and commitment to the...

If the sheath is nylon (usually is but can also be cotton) it will be damaged by prolonged exposure to sunlight/UV. Some people seem to like a bit of UV lighting in their PC cases... but I doubt many of those people would be suspending their drives?

To argue that they are right merely because of their profession--which is what it appears you are doing--is an Argument from Authority And God help all of us from the number of people who routinely accept that without any forethought or consideration of ulterior motives.

As for what BUPA, NHS etc thinks, Goethe has a quote involving a part of his body where the sun rarely visits. I'm sorry, by health professionals I wasn't explicit enough.

Here's an article on an interesting study about acne: http://seattletimes.nwsource.com/html/health/2004009923_webdietacne13.html I've just read that - not very conclusive is it, given that it contains the following: But Johnson also thinks it's too soon to conclusively link acne to diet.

People don't know this but they have a lot to do with eating habits. A lot of "health professionals" (triple quotations needed) say that diet doesn't affect acne. They are wrong, and it does. I said pimples are correlated to GDP, because in less industrializsed countries it's hardly known. That mea...

Re: Which would you choose AMD 5050E or Intel 8400E?

I suppose the only way to find out is to buy one or the other and see for oneself. I really wish that I had a sense of how these gigahertz numbers related to performance. For example is a 3 GHz CPU one third faster than a 2 GHz? Any thoughts on recommendations about this upgrade would be appreciate...

With that case it seems a shame not to use this power supply.
I'm only suggesting it because I think that PSU is a great idea and it's good value.

I just tried disabling adblock plus and did the test again - this time the sponsored ads did appear. Have to assume therefore that you need to fiddle with settings in adblock plus or reinstall it. I'm pretty sure I didn't change it when I installed it, just used it as it came.
