I think it the case of the slot machine application he was describing, and the various systems I write software for we ARE the OEM.
Our clients still run everything from 98 and 2000 to Windows 7. If it aint broke (well in the case of Windows 98 even if it is.) Now writing software that runs on all of those configurations is what I like to call job security
Must be getting the from the XP Fairy...
You think the illegals (i'm in California) and homeless people on skid row are going to start paying this tax? Your kidding right. There will still be millions with no insurance not paying the tax. Since, like the majority wrote, there is no obligation to pay it.
Brilliant deduction, clown, but WRONG since people (even the uninsured) typically only go to the ER as a last resort. People, with insurance go to their doctor's for a hang-nail. The usage of the service will increase dramatically and so will the costs. Unimaginative ad-hominem, though.
There will only be two types of plans now, and the coverages are basically identical. Sorry if you wanted something different. Be prepared for endless politicizing of your yealthcare, though, since the coverages are no longer determined by you, your employer and your insurance companies willingness to pay or not pay for something, but by unelected bureaucrats and armies of lobbyists.
Uh.. You will be paying for more than ER visits now, since the poor will be shuffled on to medicare where doctors are payed a fixed amount per month per patient in case the patient gets the sniffles or something. Of course many doctors say that amount is already too low, and probably will stop seeing medicare patients all-together.
Since insurance companies can't deny benefits based on a pre-existing condition it will pay for some people just to wait until they are sick to buy insurance. After all what's a $2000 dollar a year TAX? My insurance costs considerable more than that a year.
Of course you will be picking up more of the tab. Anytime you expand something that costs money SOMEONE has to pay for it, and that someone is you. There isn't a single provision in Obamacare that will reduce costs.
Young people engage in risky behavior? Indeed shocking...
Yesterday the RIAA-produced video In Trial, which covers the societal dangers of music piracy, made its way out to torrent sites, and among its contents are instructions on how to get RIAA investigators qualified as expert witnesses, a guide to identifying pirated CDs, and the above bit, about the links between people who profit from pirated music and people who deal weapons, populate terror cells, and murder their fellow man for sport.

Agreed. More monitors. I am using four, two 24 inchers flanked by two 20 inchers. You can really never have too many until you run out of deskspace. Mult-monitors + RDP to home + RDP to old work machine + VMWare Workstation is how I roll. I recommend Ultramon to put a taskbar across all of them and add icons that allows you to move windows from one to other easily.
"We know from lots of studies and lots of data now that violent criminals very often begin their careers as nonviolent criminals. And the earlier you can get a nonviolent criminal's DNA in the data bank, the higher your chances are of apprehending the right person.' Holy crap? That's the logic behind this? Well i have lots of data that non-violent criminals "very often" begin their careers as non-criminals. So I guess we should friggin DNA everyone.
Skip the Brothel and just open the phone book if you are in Vegas. They will send several choices to your room. Cheers.
The GMail Man video is at least 6 months old. Where have you been?
