Comment It's really important to *NOT* Minify the BOR (Score 1) 212

It is EXTREMELY important not to minimalize the Amendments. At some point, we began to make concessions in the 1st, 3rd, and 4th Amendments, weakening the entire document and eroding our rights. The 1st was attacked by politically correct morons, the 2nd was attacked by history-illiterate liberals, and the 4th was attacked by overbearing conservatives. Even if you disagree with the provisions, WE HAVE THE POWER TO CHANGE THE CONSTITUTION via amendments. Until such things are passed, the Constitution and Bill of Rights should be heralded as the Ultimate Law of the Land, or we'll continue to have our rights eroded away!

Comment Awesome, now stop the War on Ports (Score 4, Interesting) 337

Just bought a MacBook, because OSX is the ultimate Unix development platform. But I also had to buy a Gig-E dongle, and if you buy a MacBook Air, you have to buy a USB-C dongle, and an Ethernet Dongle, and none of your thunderbolt accessories work anymore.

The dudes at the Apple store say, "everything will be wireless eventually" well that's a great theory, but 1) It's not wireless right now 2) Even if it were, in a high density office environment, there is simply not enough wireless spectrum allocated in the USA for 200 users in a 35,000 ft^2 space to have a Gig-E wireless connection.

So stop the stupidity. Gig-E ports should be standard on your "Pro" models. Consumer or Home models, I understand the philosophy, but not on the Pro.

Comment Dog + Shotgun (Score 1) 212

When you are *present* on your property, a dog and a gun are simply the best protection for the price. A dog is equivalent to an advanced machine learning system that can tell when things are out of the normal. A pump action Mossberg has an incredibly low mtbf. The best approach to security is layerd: Dog, shotgun, emergency plan, and basic security system. Don't try to overcomplicate it!
