Your argument is identical to that about poor young crack dealers, or mafia soldiers, or . . .
I am a lawyer, but this is not legal advice. If you need legal advice, and try to get it on the internet, you need a shrink far more than a lawyer . . .
anyway, the clean hands doctrine is a rule from "equity," not "law". It only applies to equitable relief, such as injunctions, not to suits for money
toggling the speaker by poking a memory address was good enough for the Apple ][, and it should be good enough for, uhh, . . .
They probably missed the parts about "only" and "tasks" because they're not there.
Marbury v. Madison found that the power is there, but it's not in the text. (And as a practical matter, a judge that takes an oath to defend a constitution must necessarily have the ability to determine if a law he's asked to apply complies with that constitution; issuing an order applying an unconstitutional law would both violate the oath and be beyond his authority derived from the constitution . .
Furthermore, in US practice, all courts, state and federal, make such reviews. The USC is simply the final, not sole, arbiter for the federal constitution.
And this is all irrelevant anyway: federal income taxation is authorized by the US Constitution itself, not a statute (it's implemented by statute under that authority), while the federal constitution has nothing to do with state income taxation . . .
Does this mean it's time to give up what you kids call "First Edition"?
Nah. I'm still not convinced there's a reason to use those new-fangled books instead of the three books, supplements, and a touch (but not too much!) of Arduin & Spellcaster's Bible.
hawk, off to nuke his dandelions
Gee, Apple has been dying *far* longer than that . . .
Including no undergraduate degrees in business . . .
p.s., when Santa Clara (first college in CA) first offered a B.S., it was a watered down BA, not requiring as much Latin & Greek, but otherwise the same . . . (yes, this was the 19th century, and a BA still required calculus & physics . .
The "glory years" identified were my Jr & Sr years of high school . . .
The "other" things in circulation at the time were largely either supplements to the the original booklets (and supplements), such as Arduinn, Spellcaster's Bible, and Runequest (farther removed), or completely orthogonal, such as Travellers & Runequest (also TSR).
A bit of this, a bit of that, a few articles from Dragon, and so forth.
And the moronic arguments as to which system handled dragon breath more "realistically", for crying out loud. D&D (blast goes off in the middle of people, but the second row doesn't get shielded from the first) or something goes off between two people, but one takes half as much damage as if the other wasn't there (Arduin)
hawk, who has the original Arduin supplement somewhere (before the bra was added)
Straight out of high school, I ended up as the first employee of a startup in '82.
Both of the principals were recent college graduates (same school I was headed to), and were quite clear that they would be selling out, as they had "no idea" how to run a large company.
Ehh, I think that's on Sprint, not Apple . . .
Not that I'm annoyed that I can't get a Sprint signal at my regular courthouse, and end up roaming on Verizon . . .
I think, but am not certain, that all the MFM were full height. I remember half-height floppies, though.
Actually, it already happened, with gnu moving first.
RMS *already* demanded that Linux be called "lignux", and changed the code of EMACS at one point to make that, rather than "linux", the target.

It's not just ads; it's *anything* that blinks & runs around while I"m trying to read. In fact, I've never blocked *anything* just for being an ad, and I block much of what sites fancy to be "content."
Stay still, damnit, I'm trying to read!
the two drive bays were typically side by side in the era of MFM drives. And if they were stacked, and you managed to find a double height drive, you would have had no space for your 5.25" floppy.
And the drives I see listed are something like 41mm, or about a inch and a half--half-height or less..
Full height in this parlance is the old 3.5 or 4" tall, nearly the full height of the PC/XT case.

Now *that* one did not originate with Microsoft. Wordstart and Word Perfect were doing that before MS Word was even released; each coul generally read/export the prior, but not current, version of the other.
Word & Excel (except mac) were distant thirds. Then MS leveraged the dos monopoly to install them on every machine for a minimal royalty at about the time of the 40M hard drive becoming standard, and instead of "$500 for Word Perfect or Word?" it became "Spend another $500 on Word Perfect?"
