If you have a patentable idea but no patent, your employment effectively makes your new employer an investor in a future patent filing- and they will expect you to assign it to them as an employee. Most employment agreements have space for your to list your various existing ideas, but good luck when it comes to defining existing versus new.
If a patent does exist, who is it assigned to right now? Whoever that is has an opportunity to license it, and can use you as a vector. Even if your new potential employer doesn't wish to license, they may feel that your field of expertise is your truest value, but you will find yourself wandering into areas you have explored, and no doubt find applications for the patent.

I don't mean their LAN, I mean the network of libraries with a shared online card catalog and the ability to reserve a book and then receive an email when it has arrived.
My local library is part of BCCLS - bccls.org - 75 Public Libraries in NJ's Bergen, Essex, Hudson, and Passaic Counties
With so many libraries contributing to the inventory, I rarely find myself needing to purchase a book from Amazon. I am an Amazon Prime member, I buy lots of other stuff for sure.
... what a tool.
Works for me - I gave up on the other two

"it's Verizon's customers who are causing all this bandwidth usage"
Let's pause to re-read that: Verizon's customers. Ah yes, those people who pay Verizon $x each month for y mbp/s of bandwidth. Those foolish people who actually expect Verizon to deliver on what is being paid for.
And then Verizon passive aggressively acts like the problem is not of their own making.
I was excited to see the news of a 3D printer in Home Depot - I was hoping they would be able to print stuff for me, but instead they want to sell me the damned printer
I seem to have missed when there is an "us". However, The Internet is a real thing and "we" all use it in one way or another. If you cannot get behind the idea of mayday.us, then long live the status quo, but don't be ranting about how the man is screwing you over when you spend your time bent over and spreading.
