well the fucking morons in his district elected him.

then, because he's a loyal soldier in the war on science, the republicans gave him the chair of the committe.

remember these committe appointments are political give outs.

you might end up with someone who is actually competent, but it certainly doesn't have to be that way.

and interestingly this high and mighty witch hunt for dishonest scientists never seems to extend to the carbon cartel which has an extraordinary financial interest to lie through their teeth.

what we're seeing is exactly why they lie. there is absolutely no down side, and muddying the waters is very useful to them.

seems like they could have beat the IR drop by simply bringing out sense lines.

it's not obvious too me how this helps intel.

unless of course the motherboard makers aren't doing a very good job with those external regulators because the intel chips now require such high performance regulation.

that's a distinct possibility.

I'll tell you what's wrong - you have to know to put exim4-config in there.

Just try and figure out how to reconfigure your keyboard.

why dpkg-reconfigure doesn't take an option to let you know what the hell it is you _can_ reconfigure is another great mystery.

now it's financial engineering.

and social distortion programming. the number of start-ups working on social apps which look to be completely worthless is mind-boggling, and they are getting bought up all the time for ridiculous somes of money. we're all going to write social networking apps which try to sell each other social networking apps.

America the land where people made things is disappearing and we will absolutely be worse off for it.

You are in a maze of little twisting passages, all different.
