Suppose one has a GUI app that does the occassional network I/O--and that's about it. Right now it wakes up 5 times a second to poll. What's the best way to keep it sleeping? Seems to me the I/O should be moved to a separate thread and done pretty much synchronously. Then it can reliably be put to sleep.

Agh, this will take time.

Government inaction

Don't you feel safer already? Reminds me of a red letter day in Texas legislative history. A representative thought cheerleading dance moves had become too provocative. A bill introduction followed, and a debate, and upon a vote it passed in the House. They contacted a senator to see how the bill would fare in the next step. He replied that the senate had real work to do.

And that was the last anyone ever heard of the provocative cheerleading ban...

I'm not sure I understand late night TV

Either porn or the Killing Fields? Of course I'll choose Sam Waterston....

My job is going quite alright. Although people are telling me I'm doing a good job enough to worry me....

I am coming to the wedding. Stop worrying.

Seriously now

I've already woken up four times. No more sleep for me I guess...
