Doesn't this embarrass you, America? Don't you feel ashamed that this is what you've become?

Absolutely, but only in that we've become like everyone else. History seems to just be a series of different groups coming to power, acting like dicks, using up their resources and then being surpassed by someone else who hasn't used theirs up yet. The USA is the country which was in the right place at the right time to dominate everything for the last couple hundred years. Before that, it's been other countries.

Nope.
What it amounts to, is that luxury sedans are going to take a HUGE dive in resale value when M3 hits the market.
Then when MY hits, I believe that even the luxury X-overs will have major resale value losses.
As that sinks into the wealthy, they will INSIST on buying only electric and only ones that are like Tesla.
They are not going to buy junk like I3.

Of course we use an accounting system. But I've seen very few accounting systems at the lower and medium range price level that really have much in the way of decent forecasting tools. I have seen (though never used) high end accounting systems, often specialized to specific industries, that do these things, but I doubt my organization would want to pay $10,000+ with high annual support agreements just to get that functionality. What even low end accounting systems do offer is the ability to dump balance sheets, cash flow statements, income statements and the like to an Excel spreadsheet, and from their we can build forecasts.

Bookkeeping is only one part of financial management; a damned important part, but only part.

Submission + - Malibu Media stay lifted, motion to quash denied

NewYorkCountryLawyer writes: In the federal court for the Eastern District of New York, where all Malibu Media cases have been stayed for the past year, the Court has lifted the stay and denied the motion to quash in the lead case, thus permitting all 84 cases to move forward. In his 28-page decision (PDF), Magistrate Judge Steven I. Locke accepted the representations of Malibu's expert, one Michael Patzer from a company called Excipio, that in detecting BitTorrent infringement he relies on "direct detection" rather than "indirect detection", and that it is "not possible" for there to be misidentification.

Comment Re:Input on a Windows tablet? (Score 1) 111

Sony also announced today a USB dongle for Mac and Windows that permits wireless DS4 connections. Assuming the tablet has a USB port you could presumably use that (although as of yet there is no word if it requires any special drivers or not).

This is actually the most interesting thing they've had to say, then. Sony has always made excellent controllers.

The Republicans of the 80s and even 90s are nothing like the party of today. Somewhere along the lines it was hijacked by religious nutjobs.

"Somewhere along the line"? That was Bush. George Pervert Fucker Bush. They were mobilized to elect Bush. You can't mobilize them to stamp out homelessness or feed all the starving children in the country, but you can get them all marching in step to elect a shitheel. This was not the first time the Religious Reich was motivated to vote, but it was the point at which they really became dangerous politically.
