I imagine that he is adding features as quickly as he's able to do so, and attacking him for having different priorities than you is unlikely to get him to move faster on to your pet project. You're welcome to set up your own legal advise bot to help people, but to the person that wrote the bot that currently exists, removing victims of terrible violence at risk of losing their very lives is a high priority. Based on your username, I assume you bought into the idea that the recently elected officials would be trying to help people. I hope to God you're right, but every indication so far is that they're simply trying to enrich themselves and their friends. Please reach out to those you voted for and ask them for help, while others help those that the ones you voted for are trying to harm.

There's plenty of tech work in every city. I've never lived or worked in the Bay Area despite the opportunity to do so, and I've never really had difficulty finding work. 16 years of being a sysadmin/netadmin. The upshot is that I have a family, a house big enough for all the kids to have their own rooms, work from home, wife gets to be a stay at home parent, and I live within 20 minutes of almost all my kids grandparents (one grandma lives a couple hours away). And all this is inside city limits. If I were to need to switch to another job, I could get an office job in days, or another remote job in weeks.

You take the regular train if you want to stop at one of the stops. You take the high speed rail if you want to get straight from one major metro area to another. You can get on a train going back the other way if you're in one of the last few stops that got skipped, and save yourself the majority of travel time. This is additional, not replacement.

I use linux on my servers, on vms, even on a few desktops. But on my primary system, I run windows, because I like to play games as well. Having bash built in allows me to manage my files in the way I'm most familiar with, and also means i don't have to use PuTTY or a VM for SSH sessions to all the other systems I manage. It isn't perfect, but it's a damn sight better than having to learn powershell.

Most people are tired of the fact that almost every year in the last 20 has been significantly above average, and there's no indication that that's going to change unless we start fixing out damage. So yeah, a lot of us care, and that caring adjusts our buying decisions. Power draw is one of the biggest considerations when buying new stuff, for me.

The S4 is cheaper, but more practical? The model S seats 7 has a trunk up front, and gets an equivalent to 93 mpg in electricity cost, if you're not using a supercharger. But I agree with you, the acceleration is fine for daily driving on an S4, was just pointing out that the Tesla is in hypercar territory, not family-hauler territory.
