I bought one of the previous models of these kinds of things from Asus and love the crap out of it. OpenWRT and all!
My parents had me on technic sets before I hit third grade. Back in the days where a tv couldn't watch your kids that was the best way to keep them occupied for weeks on end. It was either that or puzzles, in which I had the horrific adventure of putting together a 1000+ piece space puzzle... the kind without any nebulae or anything that could give you a reference point. The only thing that was "easy" was the edge pieces. Now that I look back on that, it seems pretty evil, but that was fun for the times.
I came across these lego sets recently (the hero factory or something ones) and it cost 30 bucks for 300 pieces. Most of it was "pre-assembled" (a head was just a head piece, a shield just a shield piece, an arm was 3 pieces just because they wanted an elbow and a hand) - it was for ages 8-16... That's a goddamn joke.
It only takes 2... duh, that's how we started on Earth!
They are arguing for change that they wouldn't want applied to themselves.
Again, see previous response.
So what you're saying is "it's fine to treat this group as unpeople and send them to camps, because they're wrong-thinking people, working to destroy what makes society good and right"? The exact defense used by some in the Nuremberg trials?
Nope - I just put a higher level rule in place, one that is even related to a bunch of those 10 commandments and other related religious pontificators:
Treat others as you would like to be treated.
Also, I put in the distinction between thinking and acting. Brendan Eich acted, and due to his position is held to a higher standard, which he doesn't measure to.
get on the plane last...
I think there's a gap between the tools that made content accessible 10 years ago and what tools need to be developed to make them accessible now.
I don't think we need to keep dumbing down the content generation to support those old tools, but rather improve those tools to catch up with what we're doing now.
There should not be personal consequences for standing on one side or another of mainstream political debates. Gay marriage, abortion, ethnic cleansing, there are always issues that people are quite passionate about.
Fixed it for you. Also the people at the center of the Nuremberg trials would love to have your support.
When your personal beliefs carry over into action to try to affect other individuals differently than yourself, you've crossed the boundary where I could fall on the argument of "if it doesn't affect me any more than what I affect you, why do I care?" Which is the exact same argument I make when people bring up same sex marriage issues. I'm married, I have an impact on funding for government activities due to that status. Why can't everyone who works under the same government have the opportunity for the same benefits? You know, morals and whatnot.
So yeah, there should be personal consequences for acting on one side or another of a mainstream political debate when IT'S MORALLY INCOMPREHENSIBLE.
I completely understood what the OP was suggesting, and calling it moronic... as moronic as saying that just because a car can run on gas doesn't mean you should have it fail-over to running on steam when you don't wish to use gasoline anymore.
IMHO these websites are examples of bad design . Good design should fall back to plain html/css with ideally, minimum loss of functionality

Morons spout off stupid garbage like this because they were told once 20 years ago that these types of statements are absolutes, and then forget that time keeps moving forward and so do people's expectations.
Dynamic interactions with scripting languages are here right now and in use almost everywhere except old angelfire/geocities sites with the nice space backgrounds. You might find some hipster trying to make a point by making their site completely in html/css, but that is just a pathetic attempt at holding back innovation and progress.
Ok, they suffer the consequences of their actions.
Those consequences result in them having major operations that could have been prevented.
End of story right? Nope, they just racked up a bill that you're helping to pay off through insurance.. and to what tune? To the tune of the next 10 years of their regular check-ups and maintenance in 1 go.
So which do you want? Higher premiums or regular maintenance?
Ounce of prevention, pound of cure. It's not just a saying. You're going to be paying for my pound of cure baby... rock on! Best part is, I got my beer too.
If you have to save to go to the doctor, people won't go to the doctor for routine care.
When people don't go to the doctor for routine care, they have to solve the problems after they've become problems.
Ounce of prevention, pound of cure?
A real-life example... even pre-ACA.
A co-worker hates going to doctors, so it wasn't about cost, it was just about fear of doctors.
They recently had to go to the dentist for a root canal and a crown. They complained about jaw pain, thinking it was lockjaw, or whatever else the webs would say could possibly cause that discomfort. So here they are, in major pain, with a major operation, with a major bill at the end all because... they didn't want to go to the goddamn doctor for routine checkups in which they could have just paid 20 bucks for a dental cleaning once in a while and maybe another 20 bucks for a filling.
The major operations are what causes the costs to grow exponentially.
I'd rather them only pay a co-pay for regular checkups, so they'd actually go instead of having to save for it. C'mon, 120 bucks for a dental visit when you don't feel anything wrong with yourself or 120 dollars of beer. That's an obvious decision... I'd go home with the beer, I floss and brush my teeth everyday, I got no problems.... except the last time I went in I had a cavity, but that's just an exception right? right? right?
The reasoning for not using a dvd or blue ray writer is pretty flimsy. They might be more expensive per TB than a hard disk, but they'll last 6 times longer. The majority of the data sounds like it might not even change. Movies, songs... it's all static data. Get a good incremental backup solution in place and it won't be hard to make sure everything is backed up.
As the the whole probably never need argument... well, your friend just needed it.
No matter what, you will need a backup. At some point in time you will not be able to buy replacement raid array cards that will work with the volumes you've created. Hardware will be obsoleted, and you'll have to replace it all... that means your backups will need replaced too. If you want it to last 50 years, then that's what it takes!
Plz no frost pist.
Many cars come with onstar capabilities. which means they have a phone in them.
