ie. their boarding system is utter shit to begin with.

A matter of opinion. It works very well if you pre-print your boarding passes 24 hours before departure time. I have *NEVER* had anything but A or B.

Southwest (who still does not charge for 2 checked bags) has always treated my wife and I well. We have traveled with our grand children many times.

If you know and follow the well established and well know rules for obtaining your boarding pass and boarding the jet, it's a very smooth process.

But on the other hand, if you're an "entitled power flyer", your asshole attitude will get you nowhere.

Here it comes, all the reactionary Jew hatred posts...

No one seems so interested in the fact that Hamas sites rocket launchers, military command and control, and military supplies in private homes, hosptials, datycares, and schools...

The so-called Hamas "Human Shield" gets almost no attention, using women, children, and old men as "shields"...

No mention of indescriminant non-targeting of rockets into both Muslim and Jewis areas of Isreal by Hamas.

Oh, but those "goose stepping" Jews , bent on exterminating every Muslim in Gaza...

Who is it that has the destruction of Isreal as their official main goal? These are the people that want PEACE?

What assholes. They thought they would get a quick win from an easy prey. Luckily, the foundation is still good enough to protect its editors!!

Heavy-handed Wikipedia editors with serious "WP:OWN" issues often run roughshod over articles, creating seriously biased articles that no one can change because these editors engineer "consensus".

This case will be refiled, and I hope it costs Wikipedia a pretty penny, if not in money, than in reputation.

Yeah, I understand your problem. But if you are anonymous from a known-to-be-biased IP range, you can't be as trusted as even ordinary anonymous posters.

A government IP range is automatically "known to be biased"? It sounds to me like you have some bias of your own.

Microsoft is based in the United States, so there may be some valid argument here that as an American company, Microsoft data regardless of where "in the cloud" it is stored is subject to American legal rulings.

The *real* question is what about companies that do business here but are based in other countries?

If it really is by "junior IT staff," then it's more likely that they're doing it under orders from their higher-ups rather than wasting office hours on topics they're personally interested in.

I work at a major US Air Force base as a civilian in a middle level management capacity. I edit Wikipedia "articles" related to the military several times a week from work (possibly on my lunch hour, it's a grey area).

Does this mean I'm editing on the orders of my superiors?

So many schools, librarys and entire towns have no Internet access here in Rural Washington.

I think what you may mean is many rural Washington towns have no cable or DSL. If you have a phone line, dial-up is still (yes) available, and both Hughes and Dish offer down and up link to the Intertubes. Expensive, yes, but if there is a cell tower nearby... there is Internet.

I'm on my fourth watch and this one even has a date window. I cannot comprehend how a watch can get even smarter!

I agree. 10 years ago, I thought about all the money I had spent on cheap watches that I later destroyed or that simply stopped working. The next time I needed a watch, I purchased a $500 Seiko, which has served me well as a watch for the last ten years, it's really a nice time piece.

For me, there just isn't enough screen real estate on a watch no matter how much computing power it has. Sure, I often look at my phone for the time, but my Seiko is a mighty fine and quite accurate piece of "man jewelry". I really like it.

I also have a Rolex Oyster, but I only wear that to impress douche bags.

Any Memory?? what judge will go on just that?

Uh, yeah. Most judges rubber-stamp search warrants.

Also, does concealing a memory device now automatically imply child porn?

The cops get bolder every year, and people just go along.

Cop: "I asked him for his ID, and he went fishing in a pocket. IT COULD HAVE BEEN A GUN OR KNIFE, SO I SHOT HIM".

Computers will not be perfected until they can compute how much more than the estimate the job will cost.
