Comment Every generation.... (Score 1) 234

Every generation talks about how the current generation of teenagers will be complete wastes because of ________ (fill in the blank.) In the 50s it was Rock and Roll, in the 60s it was drugs and the hippie movement, in the 70s it was drugs and disco, in the 80s it was just drugs, the 90s it was violent video games, in the 00s it was a generation with no motivation. In each case the result has been the same. Kids that are ok as kids turn out ok as adults. Kids that are messed up as kids turn into messed up adults. We can always try and find something to blame it on, and in many cases it does have to due with the environment they grow up in, but sometimes broken is just broken.

Wow, the level of ignorance here is astounding. When Barack and company had both the White House and both houses of Congress, just how much did they get accomplished on this? Or did they too "kick the can down the road?" Politicians are all alike, and if you don't comprehend that then just keep feeding on what they're shoveling to you. Maybe your determined consumption of political bull$h!t will cut down on some cow's carbon footprint.

Comment Multiple copies (Score 1) 251

For me, I have a NAS at home with mirrored drives, if one goes down, the NAS emails me to let me know. I also keep multiple copies besides the NAS, one copy on my personal laptop, one on my wife's and one on the desktop computer. About the only thing this doesn't protect against is the house burning down, but if that happens, my .mp3 collection is the least of my worries at that point.
