Thank you for noticing!
Wouldn't that make it an assault keyboard or laptop or whatever?
Note that this is Polk County, Florida. Out there they believe the earth is 6000 years old and that The Flintstones was a documentary.
(I live one jurisdiction West, in Manatee County. We win't brilliant here, but most of us understand evolution and stuff like that.)

$20 or less at Home Depot will buy you everything you need to make a
http://www.masterlock.com/products/product_details/99DSPT = the kind of gun lock I have. Fits both pistols and rifles, almost any caliber.
Many companies make these locks, and they are available from almost all gun stores except possibly the Weapon Shops of Isher,
Before I shoot either my pistol or my rifle I say, "Hi. It's me."
Once in a while I take a friend or young relative to the range with me. When I do that, I make appropriate introductions:
"Chuck, this is a a Merlin 795 rifle."
"Rifle, this is Chuck. He's an approved person."
I also have simple, cheap mechanical locks for my guns.
All I need, methinks.
I have no children in my house unless grandchildren are visiting from out of state. When they're here, my guns are locked.
The idea of adding some sort of uP device to my $150
Are you going to pay for it?
If not, my $10 through-the-magazine-well lock will have to do.
If you want the look & feel of Windows 7, 95, (shudder) Vista, or even 3.1 or something custom you make up, download Classic Shell - http://www.classicshell.net/ - and you will have more control over Windows than you've ever had.
Pet meds. Lots higher from the vet than online, same as human meds.
This is not true. I read on the Guns are Better than Sex site that crime in Great Britain is going up because they don't have guns. Are you telling me that an American who enjoys fellating guns has lied? No way!

I was dumped (really, forcibly retired with a nice buyout) by Geeknet, which was Slashdot's pre-Dice owner, and ended up doing video work for them within a year. Still doing it after the company sale to Dice, too. Still on good terms with my former employers. Why shouldn't I be?
Thanks for spotting the typo. Fixed.
You're right. I shouldn't get upset by people who choose to believe things that aren't true. I apologize.
I understand the definition of journalism you're using. However, I do not believe that it's necessary to be negative at all times.
In this case, Tim had a pleasant conversation with the CTO of a company that releases the software it develops for free, under the LGPL.

Re portmanteaus: Anybody can create one. For instance, I could coin "Slashcretin" to describe some of our less intelligent readers.
But since I am supposed to absorb abuse, but never supposed to react to it, I will not use the word "Slashcretins" to describe even the most foul-mouthed, ignorant Slashdot readers. (And no, you are not one.)
So have a nice day, and thank you for your input.
