We use an Oracle-owned (bought) ERP as well. We had pretty fantastic success during ERP upgrades with the external systems that used the API - which remains remarkably consistent across versions. I find it to be cheaper, quicker and more robust to build and maintain tools around the ERP than within it.

In any case, that business data absolutely belongs in the ERP, all I'm talking about here is the manner in which the data gets there.

I was on an airliner once that had movies running to screens built into the back of each seat. I wasn't watching the movie, but at some point the host announced there was an issue with the movie playback and that they had to restart the system. A minute later I was looking at the Linux boot process scrolling across every screen on the plane.

Tea Party "values" were the primary cause of a 2-week federal government shutdown. A complete shutdown. That wasted $26 billion. All of those salaried federal employees are still going to be paid for all that sitting around we told them to do. That is not fiscal responsibility, but the Tea Party was right there in the very middle of it. There is no contrived caricature here, the Tea Party is a fucking joke.

That's how I used to run TOR, until I found out about the Tor Browser Bundle a few months ago and made the swtich. That was the "secure" way to do it, they said.

Now I'm thinking I should have just stuck to modern Firefox Private Browsing + FoxyProxy.

I'd post anonymously, but oh hell what's the point?

You missed the most obvious option. Microsoft didn't 'give' that signature away to the state. They sold it at a very hefty price, boosting their bottom line without putting as much as a ding in our defense budget. That corporations would sell our sensitive secrets to a government that promises to protect them from any legal fallout is a given. Facebook, Google, Microsoft, Apple, everyone, they're going to sell out that data and trust without thinking twice.
