    Until the gov. decides that YOU CAN NOT deny or relinquish ANY of your rights, by contract or agreement..

    "intelligence professional in effectuating change by speaking truth to power, by exemplifying professional integrity, or by reporting wrongdoing through appropriate channels"

    These 2 things MEAN NOTHING..

    Intelligence professional
    Professional Integrity
    Appropriate Channels..
    A Int pro, does NOT tell anyone anything..There are NO channels.. as the only person that KNOWS what you are doing is your Boss, and those OUTSIDE the circle, are ignorant of anything ..

    Re: Re: Re: Re: get a hint..

    See what you are saying Is important, but the internet ISNT..
    And IMHO, anyone setting there system withn access to the net, better KNOW WHAT THEY ARE DOING..

    Its the thought that with dial up, it took time to infect a machine, with high takes les then 1 second..

    Basically Email only would be great..
    Isolated internet computer at MOST..

    But for 90% of what an office has/does/will do...Any computer will work..and a C64 would be great as most people wouldnt even know how to open the data..

    As to linux, try open office..
    Look at Thunderbird..

    What I WISH is that MS was JUST an OS...and I could decide/design my OWN desktop..but every time you get things set and understand whats going to happen in windows..they CHANGE to another version..and even the OLD version cost as much..the main change was 64bit..

    we could debate this for WAY to long, and this isnt the place for it..

    To many

    To many chiefs and NO INDIANS..
    To many groups wanting to do something and its going to get SO BAD...
    How many groups, agencies, Czars, Idiots have ANYTHING to do with this, or the knowledge to THINK they can do anything with this..

    When the net went up it was interesting and you COULD find things..Now its like looking in the library to find porn..
    There is so much BS out there, that its Scary and weird..

    Re: Re: get a hint..

    Part of the problem is MS trying to change things to a Simpler environment..So that releasing something for 1 works on the others..
    WHAT they dont see..
    is that an OS is 1 part and an ENVIRONMENT/desktop interface is another.
    Just because they run with the same ideas and are Compatible between each device...does not mean they have the same LOOK.
    DX12 is already on Xbox..and with a few adjustments, Most things for xbox will work on the PC..
    Most companies are learning that EVEN a C64 can do most things in business.. And winxp EVEN if you hacked it, is a good OS/environment..If it works DONT change it..

    And if it comes down to it, Jumping to Linux for business is GREAT..

    whats nice about this??

    Sue Sony
    Sue the theater for HOLDING them, without reason or want
    Sue the 2 Men, as they were NOT representative of the police or constabulary..

    Anyone want a GOOD pile of money to retire on??

    get a hint..

    "There is a serious and long-term unintended consequence that MS, HP, et al are not considering here: they are teaching users that *installing security updates is bad.*"

    LEts see..
    I have suggested many times that Every company has wanted to control THEIR products, inside and out.. A friend recently asked about win10..
    I mentioned he look at Windows Phones/tablets/xbox..
    He thought for a second, and siad " are right"

    BE prepared to be required to BUY everything for win10 from MS store..

    "Why is this process still so vague even after decades";

    Is this an understatement?? its Just passed the 100 year mark in the USA..and in the world, abit longer..

    Always wondered how many dots/dashes there were in a 3/4 inch area..
    AND HOW you can match less then the WHOLE thing..
    Then to decide the orientation..
    its like looking at a CLOCK with no numbers..TURN IT ANY WAY YOU WANT..just line up the Hands for the time..
    I love that TV. can take a print from ANY surface..

    But its the easiest way to TELL if someone has been in a room..

    WE get to do it personally??

    AND the funniest part...

    Is that AFTER the net started doing Individual independent Audio tracks..
    The Music industry WATCHED and went after those people to get them to JOIN..
    Even if those playing the music HAD permission from the groups/individuals or NOT..
    EVEN if it was the Music creators OWN SITE..

    Lets ask something first..

    1. HOW MANY channels can you get with an Antenna and booster?? which will run you about $100 one time price??
    I live in a Farming area, and I get 22 channels..5 of them religious. 6 independent channels that show, Selections of Many channels(NOT NBC, CBS, FOX, ...,), then we get the Area channels, like NBC, CBS, FOX, PBS 4 channels.. AND I get a good selection of Older programs I dont MIND WATCHING...
    2. LOCAL NEWS and events...YOU CANT get on national TV distribution. For some reason the mentality of MOST people is that IF you see it on TV, its happening NEAR YOU..Dont believe it)
    3. IF' I could pay $1 per channel THAT I COULD SELECT on Cable/sat...I WOULD. And it MIGHT cost me about $20 per month.
    4. the PRICES cable/sat PAY to send a signal, seems to be MOSTLY in the Lower PENNIES per channel(they might inflate that just to prove me WRONG) but the FEW channels that cost $0.75 to OVER $1..ARE FEW.. but when you ATT 200+ channels at $0.10 each it ADDS UP.. Throwing in TONS of Crap channels just gives them a REASON to charge you, and say, ITS CHEAP.. LOTS OF CHEAP channels, just very little content you WANT..

    Problems with Cutting the cord..
    YOU NEED ABIT of basic knowledge, but you will LEARN something about radio signals..
    1. HIGHER is better..
    2. Low freq signals are NEAT, and expand and spread nicely.
    3. A booster helps with color and getting the 1 signal you WANT..
    4. a Clear signal isnt ALWAYS easy to get..and the OLD analog was better..
    5. There are FEW professionals in this anymore...IF you want one, FIND a RADIO operator, Short wave/HAM/CB..they will give you FREE knowledge, and MIGHT install it for you..

    let me make a BIG STATEMENT here..

    How many states VERIFY addresses?
    HOW many states verify and match Birth and death records??
    How many states verify Property ownership?? and WHERE they live?

    What would it take to OWN property, in many states, and be allowed to VOTE?? because the STATE dont realize you live in ANOTHER state??

    Easy trick? YEP.

  • Sep 13th, 2016 @ 9:47pm


    Takes less then 13 states to win...even by population..

  • Sep 13th, 2016 @ 2:36pm

    yes it is..

    1. I dont want to hack it, I want to fix it..
    2. WHO in hell would want to hack it, EXCEPT those in this country?? we make MORE of a mess with this, then THEY EVER COULD..
    3. this is as bad as saying "The illegal MEXICANS want to vote"..WHY?? they just come here WORK, MAKE MONEY, and get a free ride back home.. AND what about the REST of south America??

    Lets see...Make a BASIC programmed system to take votes, NO USB, or anything else that can HACK the system..then VERIFY the programming before counting it..
    have at LEAST 3 parties acknowledge this protocol...and AWAY WE GO..

    Re: what we wont acknowledge...

    If you could get the Movie/TV corps to go back to the 60's..
    Every RE-broadcaster, around the USA PAID broadcast in ANY/Every area of the USA...

    Then CABLE came in..
    TRYING to make things Cheaper, but the TV corps already were Strangling things..and a BETTER WAY was NOT what they wanted..

    IF they wanted a BETTER WAY...they would setup Satellites.. and Broadcast Direct to every home in the USA...but they would NOT be, BEING PAID 10000 times for every show..

  • Sep 12th, 2016 @ 6:30pm

    what we wont acknowledge...

    WE wont acknowledge that EVERY part of TV/movie/Music Creation/production/distribution/handling/art/EVERYTHING is monetized, by the corp..

    And if they cant PROVE, that every part is COSTING them money, and they can DEDUCT those costs(even when most of it ends up coming BACK to them)(so they can SHOW a 0-negitive Value and NOT pay taxes..)
    They dont want to do it..

    Dear young people

    Im sorry to all you younger folk, for the idiocy of we older folk.
    For some reason, NONE of us have ever gained any basic knowledge of TECH..
    WE have also forgotten HOW cable TV used to be..
    Im sorry because I dont EVEN think these folks, know HOW cars USED to work, NOW work, or SHOULD work..
    I dont think these folks know HOW to balance a Check book, let alone ANYthing about Economy 101..
    Dont think we are ALL dummies... its just those you have elected.(we stopped voting years ago)

    This is like..

    Anyone see this as using a SHOT GUN to kill a mouse??

    You would THINK that such companies would invest into creating a site/location, THAT THEY CONTROL, to distribute and sell recordings..
    Insted, they would rather OVER charge for individual sales, by representatives.. WHICH adds to the price and cost of the goods..

    This is like Hulu and the TV sites..TV sites figuring out ITS EXPENSIVE and hard to create a site to VIEW the movies, let someone ELSE do it, then Changing the contracts Over and over, and requiring More and more, as a 3rd party is TRYING to do a job..

    If the CORPS would do their OWN work, prices would be ALLOT BETTER(I dream), then adding a 3rd, 4th party that needs to be paid..
