Some more good advice about driving: Leave plenty of space (a car length is a good starting point) between you and the car in front of you at a stop light. Even more space on a hill. I've seen and been involved in accidents where a chain reaction occurs because some jackass hits the last car in a line at the light and then 5 cars get smashed as a result. Also, sometimes cars don't get traction and start to slide back down hills. It can happen suddenly. If you...
And obviously, bit torrent technology is only used for the sharing of open source, publicly licensed, types of material. . . e.g. linux ISO images and other such software under licenses like GPL.
Well, here is a basic explanation using an analogy. Imagine that I have a book that you want. I can send you one page at a time. I can also send one page at a time to some other people. This would be a serial distribution. One page at a time, in order to each person requesting the book. A torrent splits the book up into pages as well. But instead of requesting only one page at a time from one person, a torrent requests one sort of random page from every person...

I took Ambien daily for a couple of years. My tolerance was high enough that I was also prescribed various benzos to stack on top of it if I couldn't sleep. I experienced no downsides to the drug. There was zero sleepwalking. Zero sleepdriving. Zero other crap. I strongly suspect that the strange effects occurred with recreational doses or mixtures of ambien with other, probably recreational, drugs. Only during the first few doses I ever took did I experience...
