"Surfing Slashdot will help get me in the zone."
Yes, I can come up with a thousand free market answers. And yes, that pretty much answers your question.
Would you buy a vehicle from any company whatsoever if you knew that parts were difficult to acquire? A manufacturer can play a game with parts availability only if they don't plan to stay in business.
Maybe we should go back to renting our phones from ATT as well.
What fazed me is ðey never even estimated ðe costs
Is SQL really that right language for encoding business logic?
Yes, SQL is quite adequate, more so than most due to being declarative. The issue is not SQL per se, but poor support for it in everything but PostgreSQL and IBM DB2. The advantages of procedural languages (including OO and functional ones) are more in standardisation than in the language per se.
There is a reason for this. If you live rural, there is no backup. It comes down to your ability to handle doing surgery at 3 am effectively even though you haven't been home yet. Sure, you aren't as good as when fresh.

So, it is tempting to resurrect Technocrat.net now that Slashdot stinks worse than the last two times I shut down technocrat.net

I know that I can do it technically, and I have the server, and Cloudflare should be able to help me handle the load. But if it is like last time, and my wife observes that I'm talking to the same dozen guys all of the time, it's not going to work.
What do you think?
To all those who want a type-checked, compiled language running in the browser... Uh no. I don't want to allow any site to run code I can't inspect.
Sure enough. I do not think the Gripen will be it. I think it could be, just as ðe Harrier was; but in ðe end ðe probability is more of a massively expensive, not quite up to ðe task fleet of F-35s, and as a B plan ðe evolution of current aircraft while new, simpler ones are designed.
