So it's an ineffective plan. Good. And yes, you're probably right about using this as justification for, yet, more government bloat. That said however, the fact this one captured laptop revealed the dark intentions of just "one" radical speaks volume of how truely fucked humanity is. This ideology is hell bent on destroying modern civilization and leaving a culture of hell-on-Earth in its place.

So what do you suggest we do about it? Leaving them alone might make them choose us last if we're lucky. But no doubt, they want you, me, and every non-Muslim converted or dead.

That's not a bug, that's a feature. It's called the three "branches of government" for a reason. Executive, Legislative, and Judicial. Obama needs to work with Congress, not rule like a dictator by side-stepping the other two branches and creating "tzars" (38 so far, 33 under Bush).

Yeah, and in that 20 years, all of the jobs will be overseas managed by both people and equipment overseas. America will be the land of the global elite much how London is now as a city. The poor will still be there to take care of local services; poor because too may people competing for too little jobs. A true have / have-not society.

The future of America in 20 years will be one with a severally if not totally diminished middle class.

Wars cost money. So when you have a bunch of Islamic assholes wanting to destroy western civilization and replace it with a caliphate, who you gonna call?! Rather than bust ghosts, we send teams of them. Meanwhile, Europe (hanging on by a thread due to Islamic immigration) enjoys all the cost savings by dumping funds into healthcare and science.

Someone has to do the dirty work around here, and that's America. And we get shit on by Europe for doing it.

Protect your own, I'm fucking done support the military. We have ICBMs, just glass the fucking place. I'm all about that whole passive/aggressive thing these days.

All purchased separately within a three month time frame. I don't think it was from a bad batch. I think it was either poor materials selected or fundamentally flawed engineering. Someone brought up the issue with the enclosures being the culprit. Seems like a logical explanation for why the failed, but Seagate should have caught this problem early on in testing or simulation testing.

If it's the outer most tracks, sure. More surface area = more bits. As such, that 1/3rd would be physically narrower making the actuator arm not having to swing as far back and forth when reading/writing to that partition. As a bonus, the outer most track also has faster throughput as more bits fly under the head vs the inner track regardless of RPM.

So I have multiple servers in different locations all using 3TB external USB3 Seagate drives (powered by AC adapter). At least 12 in total, one for each server used for BMR backups. In less than a year, ALL DRIVES FAILED!!! Either they started out with bad blocks and progressively got worse, or just died.

Seagate, never again! The article below doesn't show just how bad Seagate drives are when used every day.

What they hell do they do? Drop a key logger onto the machine?! Scary stuff. I can see the elderly getting hit by this.

And this is why I recommend Apple products. If you run the newer OSX, programs can't run unless it's blessed by Apple (signed). You can over-ride the default behavior, but that's something you rarely do if ever (well, unless you're a developer or toy with someone's pet project app).
