I've lately been having to deal with Gmail's Web interface to work through all my late wife's email. It's not really very user friendly IMO, if you want to do anything besides really basic email. Perhaps it's likely that I don't know enough to make it work well for me. I still prefer to have physical posession of my mail rather than have it permanently on someone else's servers.
We've seen this kind of thing before, but it was even more ridiculous when the U.S. government tried to claim that it was illegal to export code that implemented the RSA algorithm.

So, is the solution to their problems to fight the economic injustice that plagues their society? No, they come to America, so that they can bring the economics of Mexico and India HERE.
The powers that be, want mindless, subservient drones.
When the Landers eventually died no one was sure why. It was thought maybe a bad instruction put them into a state that drained batteries or something.
Interesting. I'd always heard that they stopped transmitting because they were turned off because we didn't have funding to continue listening to them. Wouldn't be the first thing I was wrong about.
At that time James Tillman (U.W.) asked for a small 5K budget to put together a manual that would detail the RS232-like external connectors on the lander and explain how to repower and and communicate with the device from the outside--- should anyone ever happen to go there in the future and be physically present it would be easy to turn it back on. But that was never funded.
Pretty typical of government in general. Penny wise, pound foolish.
Swatch group (based in Biel) includes Breguet, Omega & Longines. And Flik-Flak. All as Swiss as cheese with holes in it.
There is actually a strategy behind this, not that you'd get it.
Indeed, and The Swatch Group, with their ETA movements, make the heart of many watches, not just those owned by Swatch.
"Swiss Made" has more to do with material and movement sourcing than anything else. You can actually buy "Swiss Made" quartz watches, though for me, if I'm going to pay for a "Swiss Made" watch, I prefer mechanicals.
Just about any quartz watch is going to be more accurate than even a well regulated mechanical watch. When buying a mechanical, you're buying more than just something to keep track of time. Personally, I like the engineering and craftsmanship that goes into a well made watch. It's something I've been fascinated with since I was a kid, that has carried over to today, when I can actually afford them.
and the $15K Rolex
Actually, a $15k Rolex is the low end of the luxury watch market. You can easily add another zero to that price and you'll be in the middle of the 'high' end. A Patek Philippe 5720 Perpetual Calendar Chronograph can be had for a mere $164k
Since we know that none of the Clintons have the skills to run their own email server, we need to get the administrator of the email server in to testify. He needs to publicly admit before the world that he was so incredibly incompetent that there are no backups of the server.
Congresscritter: Just to clarify, you're the person who managed the Clinton's email server?
Congresscritter: Could you please supply the committee with backups of the email server?
Admin: There aren't any.
Congresscritter: Again, just to clarify... You're actually an IT professional?
Congresscritter: And you're going to go on record, to say that this email server was not backed up?
Congresscritter: You realize Mrs. Clinton was a senior administration official whose duties involve, among other things, negotiations with foreign governments?
Congresscritter: And what would you have done if, during negotiations, the hard disk on this computer had crashed, completely wiping out her email?
Congresscritter: So you're going to state, for the record before the world that as an IT professional, you're completely and utterly incompetent?
Admin: I'm not incompetent
Congresscritter: Then provide us with the backups.
How many probes does it take to get to the center of a 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko?
The world will never know.
And the Democrat party contains anti vaxxers.
What do they have against my PDP-11?
Another sticking point: A traffic cop in the street directing traffic,
Are these cars able to deal with traffic cops? I kinda doubt it.
The appeal of the cute fluffy penguin coupled with religious angst about the BSD daemon sealed the deal for Linux.
and I assert that without the competition of alternatives, IIS never would have been cleaned up as thoroughly as it is.
That's a pretty safe assertion for anyone who remembers how long IIS stagnated after Microsoft had successfully destroyed Netscape. You might recall that Microsoft did almost nothing with IIS for years until Firefox was a credible competitor. How long did it take Microsoft to implement tabbed browsing?
Life would be so much easier if we could just look at the source code. -- Dave Olson
