Hmm, factory workers aren't really comparable to soldiers invading a foreign country, are they? The former makes useful things for people at home and the latter signed up voluntarily to go kill people who were not invading.

Look, you may not like people in the military (no clue why), but to say they deserve what they get is naive and stupid. Historically and currently, joining the military has been one of the most sure ways for intelligent, motivated people born into poor circumstances to raise themselves up the ladder of success.

Given the relative abundance of rich entrepreneurs vs rich veterans, I think a citation may be needed there.

Like Gyms and pools.
Almost everyone who walks into a gym asks about a swimming pool. A majority of those people won'e even consider a membership at a gym without a swimming pool, yet the swimming pool is the least used asset in a gym for most gyms.

Utter crap. Codenomicon are very friendly to FLOSS and FLOSS developers. They're also great guys. They have been providing free test services to the Samba project for many years now, and have helped us fix many many bugs.

In case you hadn't noticed, the code they're reporting on here is closed source proprietary code...

Solar battery takes care of the problem. You can drape it over a tent, or if you move every day, drape it over your pack.
No, it' snot. Just take 5 seconds and some brain cells to solve.

Really, if you aren't going to pose something hard, then don't bother.
I manage to keep my phone charged when IO go camping for a couple of weeks, I suspect you can to and are just being obstinate.
