But now you have to maintain it.


No, I mean competently.


Once upon a time I maintained servers. PHP updates due to the combination of "upgrades" and exploits make me VERY happy to no longer be administrating machines. Seriously... it was like it PHP was attempting to be the third banjo in the dueling banjos of fail known as Java and Flash. Bringing something like the bane Java and Flash are into a server context, as opposed to client, is something I would rather avoid. Sure, "It's totally mature now!", just like it was when I was a server admin.

Strangely absent from that list are Mc Veigh's actual targets. They took the day off because there was a possibility that an attack would occur against their agency knowing, full well, children were in the line of fire. Mc Veigh, IMHO, was evil. However if he was evil what does that make those agents?

Yes! Vindication for all those who lost their beach front property a few hundred years ago!!! Only a few hundred more years and we can rouse them from their graves to celebrate their victory in reclaiming their property value!!!!!

I would just like to say thank you to every gas guzzling SUV, filthy coal burning plant and all those wonderful climate conjecturists out there who are keeping the dreams of those long dead property owners alive! You're the best! I'm glad the US government spends my tax dollars on your paid propaganda to bolster their attempt to fleece America with a carbon credit exchange!

It... it give my ancestors hope.

More like you get a buffer of 5 - 7 mph by default. Purchasing either the PORAC sticker or this plate border broadens this buffer to a degree that depends on the officer. Doing 80 in a 25 as you blow by a school bus dropping off kids will likely get you arrested no matter to what special interest organization you give a donation.

If you did something like that you would deserve it too.

You also might want to donate yearly to PORAC. They have this nice little sticker they send you that has had truly amazing results for me in the past. I think my favorite was when a CHP officer rolls up next to me, gets on his PA and says "The speed laws are for everyone." Not that it always got me out of tickets. Sometimes I would get a ticket for the posted speed limit plus five mph and a plus sign next to it. You just go ahead and pay that by writing in a plea of "Guilty/Traffic School".

Then I would do online traffic school where all you really end up doing is taking the standard written drivers test again. I think they closed that hole. I once did traffic school three times in one year. I laughed because right after that my insurance company wrote me a letter telling me that I was entitled to a "good driver's discount".

I'm not really extremely wealthy or anything, but I think I may just get one of these bronze hookups for my RX8. :)

Never drive like a complete maniac however. Police are not tolerant of reckless no matter how much money you throw at their orgs.

Don't you love a traitor pointing the finger and yelling "traitor!". Feinstein needs her own tribunal. I wish that wrinkled old bag would do California a favor and retire already. From the ravages of nature clearly seen upon her face one wonders why she is still here, and if somehow she is actually among the undead. Whatever witchcraft not only sustains her rotting corpse, but somehow manages to get her reelected time and time again is beyond my comprehension.
