Also sounds like it may be much cheaper, which would be nice. I have repetitive strain injury from computer use and while it is manageable, I'd like a way to be able to not use the mouse when possible. An eye mouse would work well, but they are too much money. However this sounds like it might be in the range of something I could afford, and use as alternate input.
I don't think they are permanent - or at least there seems to be a process to have yourself reinstated. I've played against people online which had a red "Ban(s) on record" label on their account, and that was on VAC-secured servers.
I have to note, though, that every time I encountered such a label, the person who had it was blatantly using hacks as well (this was mostly in L4D, and things like extreme speed hacks, which are really obvious).
Did you know that police work isn't even in the top ten jobs with the most risk of death? Check it out, starting with most dangerous and ending with the least:
- Construction workers
- Farmers and ranchers
- Drivers, truck drivers
- Electrical power line workers
- Sanitation workers - trash collectors
- Steel workers
- Pilots and flight engineers
Furthermore, most police officer deaths occur in traffic accidents. Not in conflict with an aggressor.

Personally, I see no reason for a beat/patrolcar cop to carry a weapon at all. Particularly as the evidence shows they're far too willing to use them in non-life threatening situations -- just like this one.
Furthermore, with tasers readily available, many situations that might call for submission of a more powerful (or skilled) individual are still controllable without resorting to the extremes of discharging a firearm.
There's also something to be said for the idea of criminals knowing the cop isn't going to kill them, so it isn't nearly as attractive to kill the cop to prevent that. The fact is, if you think the cop is going to kill you, there's absolutely no downside to killing them first. It is a situation set up in the way most likely to fail.
It's going to get worse, too, as the trend is to more heavily arm the cops -- don't think for a moment that the response won't be more heavily armed criminals. It's as inevitable as the next sunrise.
But you're right. The odds of anything changing are very low. The American Couch Potato League likes armed cops, and they like it when cops do whatever they like -- they absolutely lap up movies and television shows where cops step outside the boundaries of the law, as well as vigilante scenarios. Until, of course, they are the victims. But by that time, they're embroiled with the system, and it's far too late. No one pays known criminals any mind. They're subhuman, after all. And they must have done something to deserve it, even if they "get off" or "plead out."
The idea is that your backups should be far enough apart that they won't be caught in the same natural disaster.
Oh, OK. That makes sense. Like if you were in the Northeast when Hurricane Sandy hit. You'd probably want it like several states away to be safe. Maybe one in New Jersey and one in Chicago, where the only natural disasters are the Cubs and Bears.

not quite as brief as your system; but you don't need to reset it up and there's thousands of them
Just think of how much data you could keep in-flight if you just replaced Pluto with a nice orbital mirror and told your vendor "GIVE ME AN XFP MODULE OF TERRIBLE POWER."
For real archiving, of course, you'll need to look at siting your mirror outside the solar system for a longer round trip.

Hell I have Bernoulli disks that are still readable.

The Babylonians can still pull up their post-close EOY General Journal from 2759 BC if they need it.
in at least 1 different state
Are you expecting an entire state to disappear? I mean, I've heard jokes about California falling into the ocean, but a requirement of having backups in two different states seems kind of extreme.
But I guess it could happen. That's why I always insist on keeping at least one backup in low Earth orbit and another on one of the moons of Jupiter. This way, if Galactus shows up and eats the Earth, I'll still be able to pull my post-close EOY General Journal from 1996. Or at least I will be if SpaceX can ever figure out this manned space flight thing.
The first American computer.
So what you mean is the BIGGER computer?
Can you play Crysis on it?
Sure. Bring a laptop.
There are a lot of people in developing countries without safe drinking water, access to medical care, adequate nutrition and many other serious problems.
I can drive you through some towns in Texas that are just like that.
I believe qbast is being sarcastic
What is your evidence that qbast is smart enough to know the meaning of "sarcasm"?
No one who uses the acronym "SJW" has yet demonstrated that level of intelligence.
