The German rules make far more sense dude. In some instances a non-compete DOES make sense, and it should be an option.. but it shouldn't be used to handcuff someone to a company.

Attaching a monetary cost for the company protects employees from abusive employers, and let's a company protect their inside information / processes for a bit.

you watch too many movies. knocking someone out in reality is far, far more difficult. even with a sucker punch.

Really perhaps they should have a divider between the two pilots, sort like every parent wishes they had on a car trip with the kids.

OR for fucks sake, while this is a tragic disaster, events like this are so incredibly rare, that we should be cautious to avoid 9/11 style psychosis.

right, that's what i'm saying :)

the problem with razer's software (As of last year, i had a nostromo, before moving to the g13) is that if you want a 2 or 3 button combination macro, such as: alt, shift , ~ (mmo's, hotbars, you get the point) you have to record yourself actually pressing those buttons, and then gin up the delay such that it's seamless in whatever game/app you're playing.

Logitech allows you to specify exactly what buttons make up that macro. But if you want you can go the individual delay route.

(Also again, razer's UX design seems to be "let's make it look like something someone high on Mountain Dew and Cheetos would find edge, who cares if it's usable"

Thrashing is just virtual crashing.
