Yeah, but fortunately a little thing called the Reformation broke the back of the theocracy in Europe. That hasn't happened with Islam yet. They're still stuck back where we were about 400 years ago. Syria, Egypt, Libya, Lebanon, and Iraq are all painfully obvious examples of this.

Blatant terrorism is far less troubling than the importation of more theocrats. We already have enough as is.

      What part of it specifically disallows entry restrictions?

      No, you're the moron. You just make a very small word salad and you think it actually means something. There's a little bit more to a legal argument then screaming "but the constitution".

Comment Who uses DYN for their DNS? (Score 1) 48

What I don't understand is how this is affecting things. Most people and small bussinesses just use the DNS that their service provider offers. I.e. comcast. Another tranche of people change it to something like googles Large bussinesses may implement their own DNS

So how is it DYN matters? Who uses it?

Tried that. It didn't work because the technically inept parent still had just as much problem with the Apple product. It turns out that you can't idiot proof something.

A Mac won't magically cause the technically inept to stop having problems.

...except this is IBM and IBM did not buy 'crap windows machines' when I was there. I'm not even sure what a "crap windows machine" is supposed to be. I've had little trouble from most of the office PCs I've had. This includes crappy Dell laptops that ran Linux very well.

Comment Re:How much of that is entirely Microsoft's fault (Score 2) 478

A lot of what you just described are costs required to run the business regardless of platform.

I worked for IBM. My windows laptop was not what I would have preferred but it never gave me any real trouble.

What it cost the mothership to maintain is an entirely different matter. I don't think I ever did anything to maintain or upgrade it.

You have to spend a LOT on other stupid things to just begin to catch up with the cost of an Apple product.
