Roger that, I do that sometimes myself. I hate all forms of censorship (save self-censorship, I can choose what I want to see :)) & when Dice pretends they don't do it and then we find blatant examples where they do ... it's sad.

I'll get modded down, I'm sure, but I think it needed to be said.

^ This. Unfortunately, Slashdot editors have unlimited mod points, so I expect your post and this one to get modded into oblivion. My karma can take it, but I think it's a shame that what would have been 'the big story' today was suppressed by Dice. If Soylent, et al weren't so lame, I'd have jumped ship, but /. is still one of the best sources for discussion.

Say what you (not you specifically) will about /. going downhill, there's still much good signal in the noise - just hard when the corporate overlords expect you to not look behind the curtain.

I have one that I've carried and abused daily for years, still working, though I think it's getting close to needing a replacement. My biggest problem, because I wear it on a necklace chain, is that it's been getting sweat on the contacts which eventually have gunked up and corroded. I was able to scrape it off with a knife, but that scraped off the gold plating and exposed the copper underneath, which is of course corroding much worse. I've got the private key locked away here somewhere so I can flash one of my spares and be up and running quickly, or I can just add the new key to the places I use it before it croaks. I've had more problems with USB ports getting worn out.

Let's see, I'm no mathematician (in fact I had to Google how to even spell it), but 40% every year seems like it couldn't sustain decades ... Someone better at math correct me if I am wrong, but to have a 'normal lifespan' of even 1 decade means no more than 10% loss every year (on average).

Sometimes it's better to not double-down when you're wrong. :)
