Comment: The system is corrupt... (Score 2) 163

I used to think the Democrats were evil, and Repubs could do no wrong. Wow, They pretty much all suck now.

It reminds me of "wrassling" (WWE) where they work together to make the fight between them look real, and the "actors" don't get hurt, except we get hurt all of the time when done by Washington.

Politics makes me sad now. Voting is like going to the dump, it stinks to high heaven, but I have to do it.

+ - Slashdot experiences total loss of Internet viewers over April Fools

See for yourself:
So now people are mourning the total loss of Slashdot as a viable website for Nerds, now it is "News for Nincompoops".

I second that post. I bought the same monitor (39" Seiki 4k), but was forced to upgrade my video card to handle the higher resolution.

Bought it through Wal-Mart! They shipped it to my house for free! It was NOT damaged when it arrived.

Wonderful to not have to use multiple monitors.

It does have a tuner and speakers, but not too intelligent.

I used Waze (recently uninstalled), and I can tell you that 1 out of 100 times a cop was actually where a cop was reported. I figured that some cop somewhere was flagging a cop where there was not one (like a smokescreen)... I spent more time pushing the "thumbs down" on those reports that were not valid any more. It got to the point I could not see the route because of all the icons on the screen (and I was not looking at the road like I should).

Google navigator does fine without the "glitter", and my friends do not need to know where I am going.
