that this is really stupid. Maybe it will help the non real addicts that people think need help, but those of us who are true addicts it's about our will power, nothing less. Back when I was strung out on heroin, it didn't matter if I went to rehab, got clean, i would be strung out again within 1 week once I got left to my own ends.

What got me to quit was getting help for some of my mental issues, and me getting completely sick of the junky scene. I hated being dope sick. I hated the crap I did to stay well. I learned to remember all the bad shit associated with being a heroin addict, and I left that as a reminder in my mind on what the path leads to.

On top of that, I got as far away from other users as possible. I don't want to associate with them, hang with them, even talk to them. Fuck that. If you think you can still be friends with addicts/users, you are mistaken. If they can't get clean, screw them, they will only pull you down.

There is plenty to do without hanging around people who use/abuse drugs. If you really want to stay clean, you accept that as reality and change your life, otherwise you are just setting yourself up to fail on purpose.

Of course you need to remember that the US government was infiltrated with communist spies and sympathizers. You only need to look at Alger Hiss, Harry Dexter White, Harry Hopkins and the Rosenbergs.

You know, it's sort of like terrorists today. We might have a few here (and we do, Boston marathon bombing) but see, most of us are NOT terrorist, but the way out government acts, there is terrorists under every bed. Not unlike how they acted in the "communist" scare days.

The problem? Our government, the USA doesn't care if it fucks over all it's law abiding citizens trying to stamp out a few "undesirables". They didn't care back then, they don't give a fuck today. That is the problem. They create these monsters why how they act, then want to punish us for it?

They have been holding out for at least 3-4 games that people want to play. Right now, there are maybe 2 games that people want. That isn't enough to warrant a console purchase. When there is a Zelda, Metroid, Smash Bros., Mario Kart, and maybe a couple others out, people might finally pickup a Wii U. Otherwise, it just doesn't have anything worth getting that you can't get a better version/experience of on the other consoles.

When they finally hack the WiiU to do homebrew, you'll see an increase of console sales.

I know I'll purchase one then. Or they could drop the price by $50 and probably get a bunch more sales. Though I'm sure this will happen during the Xmas holiday.

This is not the first time an agency lied. It worked out great for them so he probably thought "Why lie about it?" Very soon these agencies will use it as bragging rights and will so so publicly.

First they hide it. Then they lie about it. Then they laugh in your face. Then they win.

Not with a fan that size. and I highly doubt that a HEPA filter and a fan works. you need significant air pressure behind the fan to get any real filtering volume.

Honestly people buying cheap pleated paper furnace filters and doubling them up over their windows will be more effective. when it can filter 50CFM then I'll be impressed. and that will be for a very small one that can barely keep up with air leakage of a tiny apartment.

I have a rock that keeps tigers away, My most recent tiger count shows zero so it's as good as a $10,000 tiger cage.

All you need to do is have the USB drive mounted by a locked down device. Example, RasPi set to read only on the OS and disable everything all it does is mounts the USB drive and then offers up the contents via the network.

I dont care what you have in the USB stick it will not auto run and infect. then your can look at the contents with another pc via the network and see the real contents or even run automated tests on it before it is available to the users machine.

It is not hard to make something that will stop this crap.

Unfortunately for Microsoft, they likely would have been better off actually breaking the law, because at least that would result in a trial over the truth (and some ill-gotten gains in the process). Instead, because this is a political maneuver by the Chinese, Microsoft is being used as a scapegoat here. Any resulting punishment for Microsoft will be based on the state of Sino-American relations and whether China wants to harm the US by proxy. Which given how things currently stand, MS is looking rather screwed.

And most of us here feel really bad for MS getting fucked over, after they've fucked over so many others.

I don't believe in karma, but if I did, this is a prime example of karma.

So the REAL question is what WILL stop it. Saying that "This one is a bad person and did nothing to change it" doesn't work. Saying "The previous one did nothing to change it" doesn't work.
Voting for "The other party" doesn't work.

No, I do not have the answer, because if I did I would be giving it.
