"if we won't do something about these ISIS people, they will not stop until they reach the borders of the western world, and by then it will be too late. "

Only if dipshits vote for and pass laws disarming the american citizens.

You want to know why Japan never tried an attack on the US mainland? They knew the citizens outgunned their army 40 to 1.

You cannot invade the mainland United States. There would be a rifle behind every blade of grass." - Soroku Yamamoto.

Actually technically he is right if we kill them all very fast.

nuke 80% of the middle east, full on carpet bomb every square mile with overlapping bursts and you will not have 2 more spring up. you will actually wipe them all out for good and not have any problems with middle eastern terrorisim.

The problem is surviving the 60 year nuclear winter afterwards.

"But thus far, the logitech harmony series is the only thing I've found that actually gets that job done at all and therefore is the best by default."

Try the real stuff. Control 4, Crestron and AMX all blow the harmony remote out of the water so badly it is not funny. Hell even the URC programmable remotes make a harmony look like a joke.

"and I'm not letting water nor fire run when I'm not home "

I do as well as million of home owners do. Fire is in my furnace and it's running right now with me not home. And my sprinkler system was running at 8am a full hour after I had left for work. Many times I will start a load of laundry on my way out of the house and let that run, million of people do this.

Dude, get over your paranoia.

SanDisk's liability is limited to replacement of product or refund.
*30 years warranty in regions not recognizing lifetime limited.

NOBODY has a warranty of data readability. even enterprise grade SDLT tapes have no warranty of the data being readable more than 30 milliseconds after being written. They will just replace the tape if "defective".

"However, you won't be too happy when you get a new machine that doesn't come with anything other than 9."
That will not happen for a long time. I can buy lots of brand new business class machines with windows 7 on it right now and Dell will not stop doing it as long as 90% of all the corporations are demanding it.

Windows 7 will be available on a new machine sold by competent PC makers for a few more years at least.
