Similar up here for me. I'll sooner pay the broadband monopoly over the nickel and diming charges that go for cable service.

You want HD service, you have to pay the higher DVR rental fee for it.

But what if I don't want DVR? Sucks to be you.

Can I have DVR without HD? No.

Can I have the HD package without all the other fluff packages? No.

Can I connect a personal recorder without the cable box? No.

F-U!

Actually the irony is if the email server is in fact super duper turned up to 11 secure for someone of ex-Presidency and Sec of State, wouldn't it be expected that the wiping of data is essentially as gone as it gets?

On the other hand, if any data is recoverable, then it really means that the super duper turned up to 11 secure for someone of ex-Presidency and Sec of State was not as secure as they thought it was.

Duh... Average people don't care about IT infrastructure. Unless Twitter or Facebook or whatever socially active app they use that makes them an all knowing IT expert go down.

People don't care about the boring mundane routine things that are too hard for them to grasp.

The perversity of nature is nowhere better demonstrated by the fact that, when exposed to the same atmosphere, bread becomes hard while crackers become soft.

Working...
