Yeah, as mentioned in my post the poll is vague but this being /. and inferring from the answers it seemed to me to be related to computer technology. I did mention power tools after all.

But hey, you seem to revel in being somewhat of a sarcastic asshole so glad I could provide you with this opportunity.

What about us old dudes who grew up when technology in general was too expensive or inaccessible to mere mortals? I guess if we start including power tools as technology than, sure, I had opportunity but was a pretty good kid.

But if I read the poll as I think I should I think accessing computers/systems that I wasn't supposed to access. The closest thing I had to a computer until I was 20 something was an Atari 2600 and it didn't come with a modem!

Screenfulls of BS just confuse people.

It's not just BS to everyone though. And even without understanding what it was telling me by googling the stop codes I've been able to fix things based on good search results, especially for very common problems like driver errors. As another poster mentioned it's sometimes possible and a hundred times easier to search for a stop code and get a fix for a problem than it is to fire up WinDBG.

As if the story itself could not be more horrible I can't believe the books were published in 2011 and 2013 and just now they decide to go after him. Either he pissed off someone high up and they just found a reason to go after the guy or some bored cop just got around to discovering fiction...

Unbelievable!

While it may not be set as precedent in the UK BS is BS whether it's English or American...

But I do know what you're saying. Actually in my comment I didn't even mean to suggest the exaggeration claims were a legal defense or had been established as false by courts, I just meant it as more of a "we all know that's not true" statement.

Do you have any sources you can point to about legal precedent being set so companies have to be more realistic/specific about damages in an infringement claim? I would genuinely be interested in reading that.

Fair enough, still think it's too harsh. But, no, I did not realize the threshold for grand theft was so low. Never really thought about it but if someone had asked me to guess what the threshold was I would have probably started at at least 10,000.

Oh man, this guy is an idiot!

There are running jobs. Why don't you go chase them?

Working...
