yea, have to download the platform from sun/oracle...
I much prefer oracle and SQL coding to java coding
Yes! I loved sql, omg i forgot all about sql! OH i miss it so much. Java was a pain, with all its little pieces, lol. My favorite was machine, the pascal. But nobody used pascal. Machine was only used for dumps now and then.
I dont really remember any of it any more. Well I can make a site, and code a little here or there. The first year I worked at boeing, I learned like 8 new languages, or I should say boeings way with some. I enjoyed it, but I was happy to stop learning new languages and get on to the jobs at hand.
Some like cobol 1&2 and cics were just repeats. sorry, im blahblahblahing. I just loved it soooo much.. I was addicted. databases were my fav. I was looking into a new one, rose, no ruby, a few years back to help out some people. Have you tried that? you can get free downloads too.
Mystery snails are a species of apple snail. They are pomacea bridgsii (diffusa). The species that you are talking about, the one which is illegal, is a close relative of the mystery snail, known as pomacea canaliculata, or the channel apple snail.
The most obvious difference in these two closely related species is of course, size. Channeled apple snails are much much larger when fully grown, about the size of a tennis ball or apple. The mystery snail is about the size of a golf ball when fully grown. There are other other, more subtle differences as well, such as the difference in shell structure and shape.
Here is visual aide to the more subtle differences:

The flat shoulder, however, becomes less apparent in the last whorls of the shell. Pomacea bridgesii is not known to be available in the aquarium trade. Pomacea canaliculata and Pomacea insularum: indented sutures, less than 90°angle.
This shell is more globose (rounder) than the Pomacea diffusa shell. Pomacea paludosa: Almost flat sutures with an over 90° angle, which gives the snail a cone shaped shell top (spine). Pomacea haustrum and Pomacea insularum: Deeply indented sutures with a sharp shoulders.

I thought they were just in the same genus, not one is a species of the other? :s
Hahaha I sent a message to my English teacher. Pi ate hawksbill turtle meat in the novel. I told him Pi should be dead by now. A weakened emaciated 16 year old would not live through eating even one of those turtles. I wonder how he'll take the news. >:D
