I don`t mean to sound heartless, but doesn`t that say something is wrong with the laws? Children of any age should be able to work. Barring children under 16 years from working is a problem with the law, not a problem with children being under 16. :pope:

Yes.
Your ISP (Internet Service Provider) is different to your line type (Dial-up / ADSL)

You need to contact iafrica and ask them about ADSL options. (It may be more expensive)

ADSL is about the line not email or internet. You should be able to use your ADSL for internet too (Unless it is wierd).

Now that I have "fixed" the spelling, is the argument less detrimental? My guess is 0 impact. Now if we could get lexy to use the "Shift" key a bit more...that would be progress.

I did not artificially introduce it. To show if an act was determined by a previous circumstance we must examine that previous circumstance. If all events are caused by preceding events, then we must be able to determine what those previous events were. Thus we must trace back a series of causes in...

Determinism is unfortunately something that, if we are to find any evidence of it, requires infinite analysis. Or perhaps a splitting of space-time into parallel universes as you suggest. Since infinite analysis is, by definition, impossible, and space-time fracturing certainly out of our reach cur...
