So it would be like the FBI preventing access to a parking building full of cars. Then allowing the land owners to demolish it, because the management cannot pay the owners. The FBI then arrests anyone entering on trespassing charges, and allows the owners to demolish the building. The rubble including the cars is then re-purposed by the land owners.

Now that all the large chain book stores have disappeared from the landscape

What did Barnes & Noble close?

If you go to a Tech store that sells books, like MicroCenter, there are plenty of magazines covering a wide variety of subjects. Some of them have disks and others may have downloads.

For less than 3% of the current US defense budget, you could FULLY FUND NASA!!

Why the HELL is NASA always the FIRST thing talked about when cutting, and Defense always the LAST.


What is even worse is that since 1958-2010 NASA only spent $471.23 billion and the defense budget in 2010 was $685.1 billion.

Is it possible that software is not like anything else, that it is meant to be discarded: that the whole point is to always see it as a soap bubble?
