Um, anywhere? Hydroelectric plants, windmills (even low-tech Dutch-stereotype ones, if necessary), steam-turbine generators fueled with anything flammable (wood, trash, soybean oil, whale oil, dead bodies -- anything!)... oh yeah, or you could even just do solar thermal and skip the PV entirely.

Well excuse me! I merely read the fucking summary and somehow thought just because it said that "the ultimate goal is to replace KDE as the default desktop of PC-BSD" and that "Lumina aims to be lightweight, stable, fast-running, and FreeDesktop.org/XDG compliant," that meant the point was to make something better for the public, not merely to "have fun" or "learn" something.

Clearly, your reading comprehension skills are so far beyond mine that you were able to determine the "real" ultimate goal of the project despite the summary explicitly saying something completely different. I'm so goddamn sorry I deigned to participate in the conversation, when my ideas so pale in comparison to your obvious brilliance!

Packet radio is done every single day on HF on up. With APRS, you can get messages from one coast to the other and back again without any internet or phone connection.

If you DO have an Internet connection, http://www.aprs.fi/ even shows you where all of the beacons, digipeaters, and stations are at a given time, and allows you to see all of the packets that are sent.

Obama is a legit President, not like Nixon, Ford, Regan, Bush I & II and Clinton...Obama isn't perfect but he's not illuminati.

You've got to be kidding me. Doing exactly the opposite of pretty much everything he promised during his campaign (close Guantanamo, not kowtow to lobbyists, improve environmental regulations, etc.) is hardly "legit!"

Obama stretches decisions bad for the Oligarchary out over time...he doesn't fire Sebelius when all the media heat is on it happens after...the Keystone XL pipeline is another example...

Sebelius fucked up, and her fuck-ups damaged Obama's agenda. Failing to replace her immediately accomplished nothing except giving Republicans an extra talking point and revealing how much Obama sucks as a manager.

The FCC wanted to do B without C, so they claimed "ISPs are not common carriers, so we don't have to do C. ISPs are common carriers, so we're going to do B". That's ridiculous, you can't say they ARE common carriers and NOT common carriers at the same time. Therefore, the FCC can't make up net neutrality laws.

The FCC should just fucking go ahead and do C (i.e., make ISPs common carriers)!
