with battery protected raids

NO! I have no idea where you got your info, but there isn't a single ZFS implementation or best practices guide that suggests using a RAID controller in any manner other than pass-through or HBA mode. All guides suggest avoiding RAID controllers altogether for a ZFS setup.

Not too long ago (AKA when your mom was contemplating an abortion) Chili's, Applebee's, Olive Garden, etc...etc...
had customer service as the top priority. What OP is expecting WAS a standard, which you are now bitching about
him expecting. Let that sink in;

1. Restaurant has great customer service.
2. OP enjoys great customer service.
-- time passes
3. Restaurant has shit service.
4. Restaurant demands you order "their" way.
5. OP is upset that restaurant is no better than McDonalds.
6. Youngling derides OP for expectation of great service.

There is no part of this where your opinion benefits society in any way, shape, or form. Please, put down the participation trophies
and start expecting better out of who you give your money to. You're fucking over EVERYONE with your lackadaisical acceptance
of mediocrity.

We should NEVER accept the decline of what was once considered exceptional.

It's funny, it's not like it was the only time she called to the fact checkers, either;

So once again, go to We have literally Trump - you can fact check him in real time. Last time at the first debate ,we had millions of people fact checking so I expect we will have millions more fact checking because, you know, it's just awfully good that someone with the temperament of Donald Trump is not in charge of the law in our country.

If anything screams fake and disingenuous..........

I think I am the only one that got seriously bothered by Hillary in a debate saying things like;

TRUMP: See, you're telling the enemy everything you want to do. No wonder you've been fighting -- no wonder you've been fighting ISIS your entire adult life.
CLINTON: That's a -- that's -- go to the -- please, fact checkers, get to work.

When wikileaks shows collusion between the press and a presidential candidate's campaign staff, and in the middle of a debate said candidate "asks" fact-checkers to "get to work", it strikes me as corruption of the highest order....

Are you fucking daft?

Individual states have pushed to legalize or decriminalize marijuana. The fed has not. I don't even smoke the shit, but i can still see the immense value of the states having the authority and autonomy to pass laws that reflect what their local population wants, regardless of my own personal preferences.

Not who you responded to, but you need to rethink what you are asking for, scrappy.
The cost the states incur from federal mandates, vs. the total income taxed from the state's population.

In CA, cost of living is astronomical, so salaries end up higher. This is why many SV firms push for H1Bs. It's why the Ag industry is in favor of more open borders. Both cases it's cheap labor, but I digress.....

Mississippi cannot afford the mandates that originally started in states like CA or NY. It's why red states hate federal power and overreach. In Mississippi you can find a great job making 40-65k, have a family, and live in a 2k sq. ft house. Your quality of life is already better.

Time to bash another bullshitters brains in, and fuck him up the ass with cold hard facts.

So basically, the ABO (American Board of Ophthalmology) made a decisions that docs older than X are free to practice without re-certification, but dogs younger than X must re-certify every year. In response to this, Paul and some others started the NBO (National Board of Ophthalmologists) as a counter to what amounts to a young doctor money grab.

Let's go ahead and IGNORE the fact that Paul is known to provide free eye procedures in his home state, and to this day, has no public record or charge of malpractice.

If you are going to tell 1/2 of a story, make sure folks cannot find out the other 1/2.
