"By 2007 or 2010, we are going to have an ungodly amount of logic on a chip," Agarwal said. That's roughly 1,000 times the computing power a chip had in 1990.From a Washington Post article demonstrating the precise arithmetic used by the Post's technology reporters.

http://dir.yahoo.com/Computers_and_Internet/Programming_and_Development/the diggler menu will have options for:
http://dir.yahoo.com/Computers_and_Internet/ http://dir.yahoo.com/Clicking on these will take your browser immediately to the new location.1 Another way to get a sense of what this extension does it by looking at a screenshot.
Now, what if you're looking at http://dir.yahoo.com or http://us.f604.mail.yahoo.com/ym/login?.rand=38fssok and you want to go to http://www.yahoo.com? Diggler's menu doesn't offer this as an option. But, diggler is customizable in a way that geeks will appreciate. The rest of you can tune out now. Using regular expressions, you can do pattern substitution to add this usage.2
Adding a "www" option to Diggler1I use Yahoo as an example because its directory's URLs are nicely hierarchical -- Yahoo also happens to provide clear links to go to each of these higher levels. Not every site is so friendly.
Open the options for Diggler, add a new user defined tool. For the regular expression, enter:^http://([a-zA-Z0-9-]+\.)+([a-zA-Z0-9-]+\.[a-zA-Z]+)(/.*)*$for the action, enterhttp://www.$2/
2This won't work as expected with domains that have three significant chunks, e.g. with news.bbc.co.uk, you won't get www.bbc.co.uk, you'll get www.co.uk. Adding an additional tool to handle such URLs is left as an exercise for the reader

And they're right. The U.S. Constitution does not say that individuals have the right to any say in the Presidential election. The scary scenario painted here is that the vote in some swing states gets so muddled that the state legislatures step in and just say "it's too complicated to sort out, just let us decide." -- and they have the right to do so.
