It really doesn't. I was being facetious. Although, I wouldn't say that the days of mounting via NSF are long gone. As mentioned in the link provided by keltor, it is convenient for VMs. I still have a few sun4c machines lying around. Not much good for anything but a remote terminal but I would have to NSF mount everything :)

Frontier has become better about not requiring a windows box. I'm pretty sure this directly related to having "smarter" routers as opposed to just a "dumb" modem.

Maybe they started hiring smarter helpdesk techs again. I swear it all went downhill after I stopped working there (did I just admit to that?).

I remember helping walk customers through their dialup connection issues while beating my hi-score on Galaga.

I have to agree. Right now my feeling is this: If you really feel the need to see me naked, Mr TSA Guy, then I might as well give everyone a show and strip right here. Why should the guys in the booth have all of the fun?
All we really need to do is just casually talk to the other passengers about how much they see when you go through the scanner. I'm sure that you will find many more people willing to opt out, of course you should also be vocal about how they are feeling you up while they "pat you down"
