what do you meen that satalite companys lie. they dont lie, (i was being sarcastic). Satalite companys have been lieing to their customers for years and years about everything, from channel linup to actual priceing and the actual price they will see on their bill every month, its just that they only own the satalites in space and and about 90% of the communication process involved then charge phony fees and tell the customer that the goverment is forceing them to charge them. lies, lies, and more lies, thats all iv ever hear from satalite companys.
but i still have a problem in this, in that this game banning whirlwind thing is NOT the states job, but it IS MY job as a PARENT. So i say stay out of my hair and let me do MY job as a PARENT, not the job of some bogus piece of legislation.

that and the other major diffrance between macs and pcs is that they use a completely different hardware architecture its like trying to put diesel fuel in a gasoline engine. yeah the size of it fits but diesel fuel just doesnt work in a gasoline engine and there is just no way around it. if you have a gasoline engine you must use gasoline fuel.
personally i think the fcc needs to be disbanded due to the fact that [and your right] the fcc shouldnt have any say so over broadband [at least the cable internet cause DSL travels over standard telco lines] and as far as vonage and other providers of VOIP [voice over internet protocal] not classifing their service as a telecommunication service. Well i for one am glad cause the less of my money the big telcos and the fcc get makes me just that much happier.
you can have all the iron clad copy protection in the world all that will do is prevent the data from being overwritten, but as for a solution for what hollywood wants it is IMPOSSIABLE, or to quote family fued (the game show) "Survey says?.....Bzzzzz, that was the third strike im sorry."
