Not for my last 6 computers have I seen a 9 pin serial port.
It wasn't me that made the statement that you responded to. And if you don't want people to call you out when you are blatantly lying, you probably should start telling the truth, rather than throwing a temper tantrum.
This is not a debate worth having again and again and again and again.
Presumably because you keep losing it, again and again and again?
And I say this as a Christian rather than the typical rabid atheist Slashdot poster
I don't have rabies, you insensitive clod!
Don't h8te on rabies or I'll bite you, you insensitive clod!
Q. What is the first thing to do if you get bitten by an animal with rabies?
A. Get a pen and paper.
A. To make a list of people who deserve to get bit.
Q. How will that help?
A. It won't but it will certainly make you feel better

Does eating too much sugar cause diabetes?
For years, scientists have said “not exactly.” Eating too much of any food, including sugar, can cause you to gain weight; it’s the resulting obesity that predisposes people to Type 2 diabetes, according to the prevailing theory.
But now the results of a large epidemiological study conducted at UC San Francisco suggest that sugar may also have a direct, independent link to diabetes. Sanjay Basu, MD. PhD.
Researchers examined data on global sugar availability and diabetes rates from 175 countries over the past decade. After accounting for obesity and a large array of other factors, the researchers found that increased sugar in a population’s food supply was linked to higher Type 2 diabetes rates, independent of obesity rates. Their study was published Feb. 27 in PLOS ONE.
The study provides the first large-scale, population-based evidence for the idea that not all calories are equal from a diabetes-risk standpoint.
“It was quite a surprise,” said Sanjay Basu, MD, PhD, an assistant professor of medicine at the Stanford Prevention Research Center and the study’s lead author. The research was conducted while Basu was a medical resident at UCSF and working with Robert Lustig, MD, a pediatric endocrinologist at UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital and the paper’s senior author.
“We’re not diminishing the importance of obesity at all, but these data suggest that at a population level there are additional factors that contribute to diabetes risk besides obesity and total calorie intake, and that sugar appears to play a prominent role.”
Specifically, more sugar was correlated with more diabetes: For every additional 150 calories of sugar available per person per day, the prevalence of diabetes in the population rose 1 percent, even after controlling for obesity, physical activity, other types of calories and a number of economic and social variables. A 12-ounce can of soda contains about 150 calories of sugar. In contrast, an additional 150 calories of any type caused only a 0.1 percent increase in the population’s diabetes rate
The mechanism may be unclear, but the risk for type 2 diabetes increases by 1% for every 150 calories of sugar ingested, as opposed to 0.1% for any other form of calories. The smart thing to do is to drop the sweet stuff.
And their is no "theft" involved with an agent using a perp's account when the perp is not in a position to be using it either. Neither is my pretending to be you in any way taking away your ability to be you. As long as all I do is open accounts and defraud other parties, I have taken nothing from you; I took it from them. The fact that yet other third parties see my activity as a reason to not do business with you is still not my fault. It is a misunderstanding between you and them that has nothing to do with me. Identity theft is as real or not real as IP theft.
Amazing, you get the wonderful selection of the totally shit OTA channels.
You can't even watch all that TV,
500 channels, none of it free,
Too many reality TV shows to see,
For those who mistake reality,
With the crap they see on TV,
But with OTA advertisers can't be
Using my TV to spy on ME!
Or it's simply that the existing volunteer(s) don't want to do it any more, and nobody thought to ask the other 1,400 people if some of them would want to take over the task. Especially since each volunteer probably knows half a dozen people, so the potential pool is closer to 10,000.
The best way to guarantee
you don't get help that might be free
is not to ask, 'cuz we forget
them that don't ask, well, they don't get!
I don't get this.
When I'm watching something I enjoy, either via OTA HD or Netflix, the last thing I'm going to do is "quick! switch to another device!"
Watching a film, documentary or "episode" is much more enjoyable watched in one sitting. If I have to switch to another device I will watch at a later time when my attention isn't split.
Hm....you never watch a movie and have to go to the can?
Really. That is exactly what people expect. We turned our health care insurance on its head because 90-96% coverage was inadequate.
