"I am in this race to tell the corporate lobbyists that their days of setting the agenda in Washington are over. I have done more than any other candidate in this race to take on lobbyists â" and won. They have not funded my campaign, they will not run my White House, and they will not drown out the voices of the American people when I am president."
-- Barack Obama, Speech in Des Moines, IA

Can we please stop trying to insinuate that electric vehicles do not have a carbon footprint?
When I was going to Georgia Tech, I would have given anything for a 1.3:1 ratio.
They just refuse to tell anyone what it is, or give you any warning that you have violated it before they disconnect you.
The thing that is most amusing about these people is that, out of one side of their mouths they whine about how they don't have the capacity to give everyone truly unlimited Internet like they advertise, but out of the other side they have as much as anyone is willing to pay for, with no limit.
It really is time to label Internet service as a public utility and place it under proper regulation.
1) There is no such thing as spy-proof
2) If you can install an app on it, it is not secure
3) If you can connect it to a network, it is not secure
4) If you do not own and have complete access to audit all firmware, including the radio, then it is not secure
5) The Blackphone looks like nothing more than a platform from which to sell expensive annual subscriptions to quasi-private services
Yep, I have DOS 6.22 and WFW running in a VM along with QEMM. It works quite nicely except for the lack of vmtools and the lack of high res graphics. There's a patched driver out there that supposedly allows 1024x768, but I have never been able to get it to work without crashing the VM when starting Windows.
I don't have a dedicated DOS box. I have a DOS VM running on my server, complete with Wordstar 4.0 and many other programs I used to use back in the 80s and 90s. He's right that Wordstar is a word processor and nothing else. It's really quite powerful at it, too. He's also right that it does exactly what you tell it to do. It does not assume it knows better than you what you are trying to do.
Yep. It's tried, true, efficient, cheap (if you dispense with all of the unnecessary emissions controls that have been foisted upon diesel engines in a transparent attempt to kill them as a viable source of locomotion), and super-reliable.
When faced with the choice between a $19k Jetta TDI that gets 55 on the highway and can go 700 miles on a tank, and a $40,000 electric that can go 50-75 miles between 2-8 hour charge cycles, the choice becomes rather clear, doesn't it?
As soon as I had a machine that was capable, I started ripping all of my CDs to uncompressed digital format. Shockingly I've managed to get my rips to survive from 1997 to today thanks to good practices in backups and fault tolerance.
Does anyone remember when CDs finally went 100% DDD? Most of the CDs I got in the 80s were AAD, and some ADD in the mid 90s. I haven't bought a CD in a great many years and have long since disposed of the ones I had... so I don't remember when DDD finally became the norm..
Quantity is no substitute for quality, but its the only one we've got.
