"Chase after the truth like all hell and you'll free yourself, even though you never touch its coat tails." - Clarence Darrow

If she cheated and you're working on things, she has no right to be offended if you don't trust her. Check that shit.

If you think that your experience is identical to everyone else's, you are the one who is deluded.

Your experience is atypical. Outside of the Bay area, Silicon Valley and Manhattan, tech salaries are substantially lower.

In my market, $70-90k is the range for most experienced IT personnel. Employers here heavily recruit H1B workers and pay them in the $75k range. It's cheaper because H1B contractors don't get paid the same kind of benefits, retirement, et cetera.

Sling is ALMOST perfect for my needs. It's currently just short of two channels that I'd like but the big obstacle for me is that it only allows one stream per account. I have two TVs and they're often in simultaneous use.

If they'd allow a second stream for $5/month, I'd be well on my way to cord cutting.

Or are you suggesting that something so ephemeral as an image could lead to action on the part of rage induced media overload

sue THEM for tampering with his code

Won't work if the company granted themselves the right to tamper in the Terms of Service.

That might save them from being sued by the users but not the publishers. They are creating unauthorized derivative copies of copyrighted works.

That's illegal.

A third party can't waive your right to defend your IP.


Marriage is the sole cause of divorce.
