Or maybe they thought it's been so fucking cold for so long we can't grow enough food to eat so we better start make things to trade for food from warmer places that still have a growing season.
There were problems and they were either fixed or worked around, but the problems didn't seem to match the level of hysteria in the media. I had big problems then, our software vertical went belly up, so I got drafted into installing the software updates into our OpenUnix server that didn't have any graphics or networking installed, so I had to download them from SCO and dd them over to floppies on a linux machine yada yada yada. It was hairy but planes weren't falling from the skies either..
Likewise NY is supposed to be underwater now, the Arctic was supposed to be ice-free last year yada, yada, yada and it's not.
That is one of the problems, there is little data any more, it's all been adjusted, normalized and gridded into "data product".
So amongst people who have a vested interest in in continued research grants to study a a supposedly apocalyptic catastrophe, there is a consensus that there will be an apocalyptic catastrophe that requires research grant money for them to study; of course there is.
Now that Global Warming has turned into "Globally it got warmer, but now it may have stopped getting warmer", the alarmists are crying the old "It's worse than we thought" mantra by dredging up some obscure proxy data to interpret, and published it in some crony reviewed magazine. Of course the part they forgot is it wasn't that long ago they told us the the anthropogenic part of global warming was only theoretically possible since 1950, so warming a century before that is either another failed prediction that weakens confidence in the models, or this study is whacked.
It's pretty clear to anyone with half a brain that the extremists on both sides are religious zealots, and you don't have to read very many of the climatgate emails too realize that the moral compasses of high profile Climatologists are off true north.
The one I use the most time-wise is a window 10 box, but that used mainly for web browsing and email, basicaly a smartphone without the phone. The one I consider my main computer is a Kubuntu Linux machine I use for non-trivial tasks.
My work computer has a wire-wrapped nand gates for a CPU , my home computer has an RCA 1802 CPU!
Never used coherent, but I used xenix. It was really weird seeing Microsoft copyright notices on Bourne shell and TCL/TK scripts.
Back in the day everybody used slackware because when you bought an O’Reilly animal book, you got a slackware CD with the latest linux on it, when you were on 33K baud dialup, animal books were the fastest and cheapest way to upgrade your system.
You don't get it, It's not in his personal income taxes, those are just going to boring old stuff, some dividends, some salary, a few taxable perks and some deductions. All of the good stuff will be buried in the numerous corporate tax forms, the corporations, that own the corporations, that own the corporations. It's like the Clinton's, their personal returns are pretty boring, looking at The Clinton Foundation is where the fun begins.
Probably too optimistic, she'll likely die before they get far enough, there is a lot of layers on that onion to peal back.
We have the Freedom of Information Act specifically to inhibit Government and Politician’s corruption and increase transparency. Hillary setting up a private server strongly implies that she was attempting to evade the FOIA laws, the most likely reason is to avoid revealing the very corruption the laws were put emplace to help prevent.
The more the deleted emails are dug up, the more corruption is being revealed
No, it's the fruit of the tainted tree, and chain of evidence problem, we're talking prosecution not rendition.
Let's also assume for the moment that Hillary wanted to have an e-mail address with a domain name the added to her marketing value and she asked some egg-head if he/she could make it happen. Now assume that the egghead recognizes that she's the secretary of state as well as the former first lady of a two term president.
Now the egghead hears her ask for this and he's like "Well, I can't put that on our internal servers... what else can I do to make it happen?" Of course the egghead isn't a lawyer and he/she doesn't want to be cock-blocked by some manager and then go back to Hillary and tell her/him (still not sure) that he screwed up and now her dreams of having a her marketing slogan as a domain name for her e-mail will not be possible.
All you have to do is:
1. have IT at the State Dept set up an email server, at the State Dept,
2. manage the Email server per State Dept's policies, regulation and US law by State Dept's professional administrators
3. Point the Domain record's MX record to the State Department's server.
If your the US Sec of State, you can do this shit.
Honestly, four years of the federal government in D.C. not fucking things up for the rest of us, regardless of party affiliation, sounds like the best kind of presidency.
Bill Clinton was actually a pretty good President by that Standard too.
