I was using RN for years, switched to Forte Agent in the late nineties, have been using it ever since for mail and news.
Yes, I still actually participate in discussions on Usenet. I still maintain an nntp server at home, 32 years after my first stint as a news administrator for my first tech job.
I could justify this, maybe as it being faster to find a physical CD than it is to navigate the rather clumsy interfaces in some gear, but it's really that it's nice to have something I can physically handle.
I also make it a point to go through supermarket lines with a real cashier rather than a do-it-yourself scanner. Not because I am a technophobe (quite the opposite) but because I like dealing with a real human.
I have actually found my memory has been getting better with age, but I had a horrible memory as a child. I've been finding that the more I learn, the more ways I have to associate knowledge, allowing me to better recall or learn new knowledge.
I'm guessing you don't watch a lot of TV.
It's the rate of change of magnetic flux that does the trick.
So, in theory, standing near a nuclear explosion to get a direct cranial hit from the EMP it generates should do wonders for your mental capacity....
For some definition of "wonders", yes.
These are magnetic pulses. No, strapping magnets to your wrist/ankle/belly/tinfoil-hat still won't accomplish anything.
That means they can sell you a battery pack for the halo.

Well done. As long as I don't have to sit through the movie again...
I'm pretty sure our ancestors didn't evolve to eat corn that was licensed by Monsanto. Just a thought.
But I understand GMO foods are going to totally fix world hunger, which is why they're primarily sold in the US, where judging from the girth of people I see on the street, everybody's hungry as hell.
We are guinea pigs for the rest of the world. Looks like it's working.
So you're saying, eat less, exercise more, and do it for the rest of your life?
You'll never sell that. People want to know what magic food you can eat that will make the bulge from all the cheetos go away. Telling them to eat fewer cheetos only makes people hate you.

> Cyber is easy - simply no direct connect to the internet. Anything less is effectively nothing. Anything more is not needed.
From a purely electronic standpoint, true. But you also have to maintain a fairly high degree of physical security. Just one example: If you work in an office building, note that janitors have keys to everywhere, even the CEOs office. I know, many companies require a background check for janitors, but many don't.
Seconded on Anker batteries. I didn't like the funky wall charger with the movable contacts, ended up not using that. But the battery was fine.
The city's actually in more trouble if people keep suing it and it has to settle with six-digit amounts. That does put pressure on the government.
Sort-of true, except, it's easier to settle lawsuits if you're doing it with other people's money.
It's a way for mass bricking of phones should the need arise. And people will just accept it, believing it's for their own good.
Nobody needs to get murdered. You merely must create an environment where it's more profitable to research fusion energy than it is to commercialize fusion energy.
