I am someone that's been in the industry for over 30 years...
Therefore you are not who Mike is talking about. Picture someone who doesn't know the difference between the internet and a web browser trying to set up and maintain their own email server. It's ludicrous. As an IT professional, it's very easy to lose perspective on the skill and knowledge gap between people like you and people who can barely manage to operate their smartphones. My brother in law asked me to set up Pandora on his Kindle tablet (the only reason he has it at all is because it's a gift) because he had no clue how to do it. And you want this person to set up an email server? He wouldn't even know what the word "server" means.
So long as they aren't alleging that her husband was the abuser.
To be a little more explicit in case some hadn't heard, she had something on her web site saying all victims of sexual abuse deserve to be believed. Then Juanita Broaddrick reiterated her accusations of rape against Bill Clinton, and that statement was suddenly (and silently) removed from her web site.
When i was 17, two of us were confronted by NG 'Solder' in the local park at dusk (city park dawn to dusk, Army Reclamation at night) with his Colt 1911, so close i could have field striped it right there in his childlike face.
"What you, Timmy and most libs don't understand is governments have authority only by using force. "
Are all conservatives mind readers or just you? We can either have governments that operate by force or each individual can have power over others according to the force he is willing and able to employ. Which would you prefer?
And governmental authority ultimately rests on force but also largely from the willingness of the governed to recognize the authority of the government. Most interactions between government and citizen don't involve force.
You want to see that in action in the US, just look at when Obama threw his temper tantrum about the government shutdown.
And if he had continued running the federal government after the Republicans denied him any funds to do so, you would have accused him of tyranny and usurping the constitutional authority of the legislative branch. Congress told him he had to shut down the government, so he did. What would you rather he had done?
This guy gets it and this is something liberals will never understand.
Conservatives are the only ones capable of seeing things the way they really are, is that it? This is not a recipe for useful discourse.
What I want to know, is why is it so difficult to get a static IP in many of the so called democratic countries, as the lack of such is a majpr reason that true distributed systems for social networking are difficult to get adopted.
I would guess because of the scarcity of v4 IP addresses. It might become much easier to get a static v6 address, but inertia might cause ISPs to continue to deny or charge for the capability. Or, it could be as simple as it's something they can charge for, so they do. After all, there's little or no competition.
You mean how Apple will support a iPhone for at least 4 years, while Google only suggests 18 months with Android!!!
Support is up to the carrier. As you say, Google releases security and OS updates but it's up to the carriers to push them out. There are advantages and disadvantages to the Android ecosystem compared to Apple.
These days, we have many that come here and stay Mexican, Wave the Mexican flag in America which makes zero sense. Won't learn English. We go along with this with putting documents in every language.
There is no official language in the US, so you have no more right to have documents in English than they do to have them in Spanish. And thankfully the 1st Amendment protects their right to wave wave whatever flag they want and speak whatever language they want. I don't understand why anyone who really believes in American ideals would have a problem with others doing as they choose as long as they're not hurting anyone.
