Cowboy Neal. That is the correct action. Oh, wait...
I haven't been to Slashdot for a while. I came back to check out my profile page.
I wonder whatever happened to my friends here? I wonder whatever happened to people from the glory days, TripMasterMonkey and Cowboy Neal? I wonder, does anyone even know them anymore? There hasn't been a "cowboy neal" option on the Slashdot polls each of the last times I came back to check.

What's a windows?
hah, a mail client. How quaint.
Whatever happened to cinder blocks and wolmanized deck boards? Where is the class?
Yes! I used opera on windows a long time ago. I gave it a try on Mac recently. It's actually unbearably bad. It's like using a badly unfinished alpha release of firefox.
You don't post much?!
You magnificent bastard! You post all the best stuff!
yes, and it's almost useless as a skillset considering most servers are *nix. Unless you work in a
why would anyone want to learn powershell? MSFT got it wrong, they should have done what Apple did with OSX and used some *nix variant as the shell. sh and its offshoots are a de-facto standard. The fact that they made powershell somewhat understand nix commands is an admission of this.

I think the signal:noise here is a bit higher than reddit (scary, I know!) Or it could be that there is just less signal here to pick through. This place is a ghost town!

I am a peschitarian. I only eat food that looks like Joe Peschi. I eat a lot of ham.
he found it in the trash. He didn't steal it. It was being thrown out and would have been put in a landfill. The museum was negligent; he didn't steal it.
"You have health care and the complaints you have about it will be much worse after the government has taken over the insurance industry"
that doesn't mean the current system isn't broken. also, your point is a good one, glad you are not a troll. There is one single thing that undermines your point: the rest of the developed world has government run healthcare. And it works. Not perfectly, but it works. I don't think you could make the same statement about ours. it works OK for some people, and is completely busted for the rest.
It's easier to reform a system where everyone has the same universal plan. Currently, the US has a patchwork of health plans. Any changes to legislation under the current system has a ton of unintended consequences. If you have the same experience for everyone, then the repercussions are the same for everyone. This provides incentive to produce good legislation.
The middle class will pay for this because the current political climate in the US gives corporations and the very wealthy a free ride. If corporations and the very wealthy paid their fair share, then this wouldn't be a problem. You could ensure this by doing one thing, and one thing alone: impose a 14% federal flat income tax on EVERYBODY, corporations included. One exception: determine a poverty level for each state, and anyone at or below this poverty level pays no taxes.
I'd bet that universal healthcare could take a lot of the burden off the welfare system as well, maybe even make it obsolete. If you don't wanna work, you get health care so nobody here in the US is going to die from a lack of care. But you will need to work, since you need a home and food and clothes. In other words, the government will help keep you alive. But what you make of your life is up to you.
