There's an ancient roman proverb, "Old age bends the knee."

There's the problem: Goods. Copyrighted works are not goods. They are ideas.
You ingest mercury daily. It's a significant portion of the earth's crust, and is impossible to avoid. The dose makes the poison, and the amount of mercury in a single vaccine dose with thimerosal is microscopic compared to whats already in the air and your food.
I believe you are confusing correlation with causation.
For some reason, this does not apply to Andrew Wakefield.
You need to do more reading up on measles, mumps, rubella and the other diseases children are vaccinated against. Mortality isn't the only issue. They can cause severe disability and sterility.
I know, I missed the threading:)
I didn't notice the line showing the threading. I still have my doubts about using the two cables as a 100 ohm differential connection. You're talking about using them as a balanced transmission line, I'd be worried about crosstalk between the shields of adjacent cables.
It's not theoretically possible, I'm sorry. The characteristics of the coax are completely and totally wrong. This get complicated when you're dealing with high-frequency digital and analog signals. The capacitance is wrong, the impedance is wrong... It's just wrong, wrong wrong.
My mind has been boggling at how bad an idea his plan is. The conductor and shield in coax have capacitance between them, it's an unbalanced transmission line. There'd be noise and cross talk and impedance mismatches causing reflections.... It's like running the poor signal through a meat grinder.
It won't, no way, no how. The capacitance of the coax cable will screw the whole thing up. You'll get relfections and crosstalk *everywhere*. What you need is an old fashioned 10Base2 card designed for coax, you need terminators and you need to make sure the cable is of the right impedance.
I wager a 100 ton hydraulic press would make short work of it.
Honestly, there's not a lot of value in cutting off the coffee anyway. On a per cup basis it's one of the cheapest beverages going. Some gas stations make more off the coffee than they do the gasoline.
This'll encourage all kinds of talented people to stay in IT, that's for sure. This combined with the bad pay and near infinite stress, and being woken up at 3AM become some developer was fiddling where he shouldn't be... Yeah, who wouldn't want to work in this field?
This is like having a bank vault, and investing thousands in an expensive lock - then placing that lock on the outside of the vault in a tin box. All they have to do is smash off the box and turn the knob behind it. There's a word for this: incompetence. I'm not sure why companies still put up with this kind of stupidity. Seriously, if a doctor pulled this kind of stunt he'd lose his license.
