If they make a way for the user to set one's colors on the other hand, and leave not-Slashdot as the default, then they might be OK.
Per the last stats I saw, home ownership in CA is actually higher than average. A great many hovels are owner-occupied, especially in the rural areas. And there's an astonishing lot of CA that still doesn't have electric service, including well-populated canyons -- some within 15 miles of Los Angeles.
Canyons get started by water, but it doesn't take much -- just enough of a ditch to generate a bit of wind. Windblown sand does the major carving after that.
You'd think the fight between Edison and Tesla would have ended long after their deaths. Clearly not. It is a good thing their graves aren't near each other, if they were, there would surely be lighting bolts going back and forth.

So you're not privvy to what goes on upstairs. Go find somebody in the know, get them drunk, and ask them about massive scaling and Google's patents on map/reduce.
In the meantime this seems like a good idiological fit. The surveillance-funded corporations will be taken care of while the USG destroys the software industry, which is too wildly successful for a completely unregulated market. Nimble big-name companies have already fled or are in the process of fleeing the jurisdiction, leaving work-a-day programmers to manage the leavings or find a different line of work.
Don't worry - it runs in kernel space for performance.
Someone might have twenty years with RPG, COBOL, FORTRAN, and DB2, but that doesn't they'll be effective in C++.
One thing that the Israeli army has right is they require their soldiers to take regular water breaks if conditions are safe to do so, and they enforce that enough water is drunk each break. It's amazing how high the temps can be and still be survivable if one isn't dehydrated.
Usually it's simple confusion between 'decimation' and 'devastation'.
" 'Decimation' means the same thing as 'devastation' except it sounds cooler."
