Jeep, as a brand, almost died simply for having non-round headlights.
Brand association is a powerful thing. Probably an evolutionary thing, actually; if it doesn't taste, sound or smell like what it's supposed to, it's not the same thing, so don't risk it.
And apparently the site I linked does not like hard links. Meh. Whatever. Just image search for "2600 cartridge interior", you will find it.
Here's a link to one of their articles which shows the contents of a cartridge. Hopefully that'll work?
I'm sure you'd like to believe this, but it isn't true. There are introspective people from all walks and everywhere on the spectrum, but most people are captives of their own echo chamber and don't want to hear a word otherwise. Leftists do not have any special properties in this regard. They are just as eager to squelch speech as any other government, when in power.
Bad form (replying to myself) but, I imagine many readers weren't even out of diapers when the last EISA system shipped. EISA slots supported ISA cards as well - the slots were dual use and had special keyed connectors that reached down lower in the slot when operating in 32-bit EISA mode. To an 8 or 16 bit ISA card, the slots were standard ISA slots for all intents and purposes, except that you had to run the EISA config utility (kind of like a BIOS config, but software rather than firmware) to get the system on board with what you were doing.
AC, the Compaq Deskpro line implemented EISA. While these systems rarely saw use in homes, banks were full of the things as were other firms. Deskpros were built like tanks up until about 1996. I installed lots of EISA NICs, in particular.
My point is that there were more of these systems out there than you think.
If the American public truly believed, so overwhelmingly, or cared, Congress wouldn't have an incumbency rate of somewhere between 96 and 85 percent (depending on how you count.)
America doesn't have elected officials, they have an aristocratic class, and a few political dynasties.
I mean I know people running criminal enterprises aren't all that bright usually, but you'd think the smart play would be to avoid obvious telltales like an overlarge amount of shipments to your house.
The right way to do this would be to open up a shell storefront and conduct a legitimate trade for its cover value, and get your shipments there. How about one of those mailbox places?
Q. How, precisely, do you stop bullying short of creating a police state with constant surveillance?
A. You can't.
Which can be rewritten as 'Microsoft specified it would only be free for the first year, which I interpret to mean that there will then be a yearly fee.'
The other, more logical, interpretation is 'After a year, even if running windows 7, 8 or 8.1, you'll need to purchase an upgrade at standard retail.'
The fact that most women have trouble getting along with other women is not my problem.
The fact that a significant percentage of women are also offended by male-dominated social environments is also not my problem.
I can speculate on the reasons why both of the above are true, and even come up with ways to fix it, but as stated, not my problem.
The majority is not going to change for a minority, no matter how many laws are passed. Sporadic enforcement is the rule. Eventually, they'll be rolled back. In the meantime, resistance is the rule. SJWs, like you, are to be taken out using any means available.
He's one of the assholes who make the problems. Probably lost a lot of lunch money on the playground, so now it's time to WIN via a collective power to irritate.
Really, who the fuck wants to read this? If the objective was to make this profession as sucktastic as the rest of them, mission accomplished.
