i was going to mod you up...that is until you involved Wang-Fucking-Chung in this.
according to the u.s. constitution, Congress allocates spending.
just fyi...and also I would like to know where in my comment I specifically blamed any one political party for the national debt?
since when is cost a consideration for a government that is already $17trillion dollars in debt?
well, then, you seem to contradict yourself.
short of being locked up by the state ON THE POTENTIAL of you saying something "illegal", it's simply impossible for anyone to stop you from saying whatever you want wherever you want.
and of course, there could be consequences...but no one, in this case, took away your "freedom of speech"
so what is your point again??
"The initiative is likely to be controversial, with broadband companies already warning that freedom of speech could be compromised."
freedom of speech is a total fiction anyway...there is a plethora of restrictions on free speech, not the least being having to be careful of what you say in social settings as to not alienate yourself from whatever group your are trying to gain favor in.
just because QEx hasn't yet caused a big inflationary event, certainly is not proof it won't happen tomorrow, or the next day, or the next...
oh yes..lol.."it's different this time"...just like the dot bomb bust, and the real estate bust. and blah blah blah..
...and once it gets (and its inevitable people) linked to a 1. worldwide child porn ring 2. high-viability murder-for-hire 3. terrorist act that kills many citizens in some random country or 4. large scale drug operations, it will be legislated away with the blessings of the state-run media, the banking system, and the average person in the street as something exotic and hard-to-understand-and-therefore dangerous.
so play in the sandbox while you can, its not going to be around for long....and for you people who say nothing can stop it? lol wait til they make it a 3rd degree felony to have a wallet on your harddrive.
hell it made it father then i would have over that crap...bravo Darpabot!
I, for one, welc...oh shit that's right.
...but I just don't think the world needs another gaming platform, and definitely not one whose second life is a friggin controller.
now, if they could figure out how to get really cool games to work on, say, a mobile phone that's always in my pocket?
yeah, that would be cool.
" Can't someone make a hack to permanently store the data?"
yeah...its called using the screenshot function of your phone to capture the pic while its there.
nail meet hammer.
i agree totally...and the irony is that the vast majority of users want MORE of this sort of thing on FB, not less!
its for the children for god's sake!
..I went 145 on I95 for about 10 minutes just south of Jacksonville Fl in a 1993 Toyota Maxima years ago...this is news?
hmm...i seemed to have missed where it says Raytheon (or any other security-interested contractor) is expecting to hire trained, degreed IT security consultants for "$12/hour".
oh...yeah...because it doesn't and they don't.
And, yes, unfortunately for many of the "well I'm a clever chap, got a book on Python and NoSql and downloaded a nifty web FOSS project and now I'm a web developer" types, this level of tech knowledge just isn't what large corps. are looking for.
They have been burned too many times by hiring tech people who quickly bump their heads against much deeper levels of abstraction they what silly web pages offer.
