Comment Re:Too expensive (Score 1) 80

You do realize that places like Tulsa, Oklahoma already get like, 35 channels over the air, even if you have a relatively shitty antenna setup and are stuck using an indoor antenna in a basement apartment at the bottom of a hill, right? And that's like, basically, the big three and the rest are specialty channels that are easily on par in terms of watchability with early to mid 1990s basic cable. Go to my dad's place in Los Angeles with the same antenna setup and you're looking at 70 channels. Get the antenna up on the chimney and it's more like 135. For free.

I think that kind of thing is precisely the opposite of what we need. People who say that it's your civic duty or that it is patriotic to vote are wrong. I think that if you don't take the time to educate yourself about the candidates and the issues, then the responsible thing to do is to not vote at all.

Sounds like there's some common ground. But I think that if you don't take the time to educate yourself about the candidates and the issues and don't vote, or don't take the time to educate yourself about the candidates and the issues and do vote, then you're actively working against your own country.

Perhaps if you'd do a better deal, it wouldn't have been cheaper for Microsoft to start from scratch than to work with you or some other AV manufacture.

The funny thing is if security in Windows wasn't designed to be shit from the start, Kaspersky wouldn't even have a market segment.

Joke's on them. I adblock the shit out of everything (want to feed me ads? Pay for my and my employer's internet connections), and thanks to being the victim of student loan fraud dropping my credit from 800 to an unrecoverable (short of paying for some other asshole's college) 450, I pay cash on the spot for everything, lowest cost, and generally grey-market.
