Most people abuse what they don't understand....
Then there are bad batches of HDD's you get stuck with as well.

I still have old PC's with fully working HDD's that have been treated with respect (never overheated).

I don't expect the same from the PC's at work though, server rack or PC.

Cheers !

Most of our PC's have auto update off and we choose what third party software to run when we discover 0 day bugs (that we usually solve on our own). This whole phone line to the mothership approach to OS's has to stop, but it won't with that cloud over our heads. It's almost time for me to retire and go fix PC's and servers in my spare time, since I can see the coming storm...

It was retracted because of threats, corruption and one of their team become co-opted. Read some more and find out what actually happened. Never mind that ANY researcher trying to get funds to research GMO's for possible negative effects is asking for his career to end. Monsanto doesn't play fair when profits loom in the balance and they couldn't give two shits about our health.

It's shills like you that continue to suppress the information that GMO's are a pandoras' box. There is so much information out here that Monsanto and their ilk you'd rather not know. Anti-GMO proponents are not anti-science (sounds like a fox news insult) they are on the side of labeling so we, the people can choose. The pro gmo faction knows if we have a choice, their products will no longer sell, and there are a multitude of reasons for this, but until you avail yourself of the documented effects of gmo's you'll remain ignorant of their dangers. Side with the Corps that told us that Agent Orange is safe and get back to me.
