The Morning Line, 3/3

The Morning Line, 3/3
Cincinnati is officially back to being the epicenter of Quasi-Amateur Hoop Universe, and it feels good. Xavier was in the tournament before last night; UC probably was, too. Now, definitely. Take a bow, boys. You could argue that Tobacco Road has better ball, but not this year. Duke is good, but Carolina isnt, especially. Wake […]

How are the Texas Longhorns looking for the upcoming season?

Question by Vernon H: How are the Texas Longhorns looking for the upcoming season?
I assume a National Championship is not in order. Will we win what’s left of the Big 12?
Do you have any insights? Why, is this just your hopes and dreams or what can you point to that the longhorns are lacking? I am looking for some opinions on the team, not just some bandwagoners please.

City of Pilot Point, Pilot Point, Texas Historical Marker
Image by fables98
Attracted by fertile land and abundant water and game, pioneers began to settle at this site near the edge of the Cross Timbers region in the late 1840s. The village, first known as Pilot’s Point, was named for a high point of timber that served travelers as a landmark. Near an early immigrant trail, Pilot Point was also a stop on the Butterfield State Route. A townsite was platted in 1854 on land originally granted to Charles Smith. Dr. R. W. Edleman (1825-1904) of Missouri came here to launch a medical practice and open a drugstore. James D. Walcott ran the earliest general store and became the first postmaster in 1855. Alphius Knight, a settler from New York, built and conducted the first school in the town. Established by three local residents in 1872, Pilot Point Seminary was later renamed Franklin College and operated here for almost 30 years. In 1878 the town’s first newspaper was published and in 1884 a bank opened. A marketing center for farmers and stock raisers, Pilot Point had a grist mill and a cotton gin. The arrival of two railroads, the Texas and Pacific and the Missouri, Kansas and Texas, boosted the local economy in the 1880s. Agriculture and light industry form the base of the town’s economy in the 1970s.

is windows longhorn the same as windows vista?

Question by Johnny R: is windows longhorn the same as windows vista?
i heard people talking about windows longhorn

Best answer:

Answer by life2death_sbc
Yes, and no. Longhorn was the ‘Beta’ of Vista’s codename. As Whistler was what became Windows XP. Neptune became Windows Whistler (Windows 2000 + Windows ME Experiment)

A lot of people argue that Longhorn had a lot more going for it. Also longhorn covers Windows 2008 Server AND Vista.
