When I was 7 years old, I was wandering through the woods, looking under rocks for creepy crawlies, playing hide-and-seek, and playing baseball with my brother and cousins. Not only did it *not* set me back in anyway, but it is some of my fondest memories of being a child.
Let kids be kids for goodness sake.
When I was 7 years oold the only computer I've seen were the ones on books or on sci-fi tv serials, that I watched on a black-and-white televison, with only two programmes that started at 5 pm. I wandered in the woods or went to the library to read. I remember that when I was a niner I visited a fair, there was a Commodore dealer. I stayed all the afternoon watching these machines and typing on the keyboards. Not that changed by child attitude. By the way I think that a Raspberry PI with mouse and keyboard could be a nice test to see if a kid is interested on programming.
The world should introduce trade-sanctions against the USA and the UK, until they stop attacking other countries, and fall in line.

$(object X) being a TARDIS neither makes me outraged, nor makes this news for nerds.
It amazes me, that in the self-appointed "land of the free" one in his private property has to follow some oddball rules about what is allowed and what is not allowed. Oddball rules that are not readily available to read, and not written by some democratically elected body. Besides I don't like nosy people watching what I'm doing in my home: i always wonders why in the US the houses don't have walls and fences...
