We cut the cord 3 years ago November 1st. The only think I really miss is college football - but hey - there is a radio for that! And now that I have Sonos, which I can use to pipe TuneIn throughout the house and listen - it's awesome. Netflix is the only content we pay for on a monthly basis, and it'll be another year before I've watched everything on there I want to see.

There is a series of articles out there on the Interwebs about a company losing a satellite because they couldn't use the patented Boeing math.

However - back to the original comment - since you *are* a patent attorney - is the original statement "you can't copyright the math" true? or false? Thanks!

Totally agree. Maybe once a month a single 'spam' message ends up in my inbox, and maybe 2 or 3 non-spam ends up in my spam folder. But even the ones that end up in the spam folder are from mailing lists or subscriptions. I've never had an actual hand-written e-mail from a person I know, writing to me about something we actually need to discuss, end up in the spam folder.

Progress means replacing a theory that is wrong with one more subtly wrong.
