However, the telecom industry has done a bang-up job of bribing your negotiating team. So, good luck, America!
This deserves to be modded up. The main issue with the news media these days is the complete lack of "what the fuck?!?" when presenting stories on these sorts of issues. While it might make sense to present some news stories in a detached, dispassionate manner, certain behavior, especially of government, where the fourth estate would like to claim an inherent civil duty, needs to be held up and ridiculed when it is this badly debased. People like John Oliver, and Jon Stewart before him, are able to say "look how fucked up this shit is! No, look closer. It is worse than you imagine!" This country needs way more of that.

That single-sided material is what's used to make a bag of holding. Or a Tardis.
I used to buy single sided floppy disks and then use a hole punch to create the track index hole and the write tab. This turned it into a double-sided floppy. I'd this with good quality Verbatim disks. You could then take the disk out of the single sided drive and flip it over -- by hand -- to get double the capacity. But that was way before most of you young punks were even born. Now... get off my lawn.
Actually, my best hardware hack was an Arduino device that I turned into a product which has since sold thousands of units. 32kB flash, 2.5kB SRAM. Can send messages via the international space station.
