Re: Windows 10 - Your Thoughts?

I think the supposed threats of having unprotected XP (or older) machines on the internet are way overblown. I personally had Windows 2000 on my main computer that I used daily until just last year without any kind of antivirus installed. Ran it for almost 15 years spread over 3 different computers ...

Re: State lotteries

Most places don't accept credit cards only because the commission rate to store owners is a mere 6% of sales - and if you have to pay half of that or more in credit card fees....well...you get the point. What I don't know is exactly what percent the state is offering retailers back in CC fees and/or...

Re: Election Day predictions thread

The thing is, if dems do take back the House, investigations are practically the only tool they'll have at their disposal. Any legislation they come up with will be DOA so they'll basically waste an entire 2 years doing nothing but one investigation after another.

Re: State lotteries

To be clear I'm not talking about people that buy a ticket once in a while or even spend a few bucks a week. I'm talking people who spend a substantial percentage of their income. And I think there are more of these than people realize. Also you're wrong about the cash requirement. The place I used ...

Re: State lotteries

Which is exactly why I'm asking why the left doesn't have a problem with it. btw - during the Michigan/MSU game I just heard on the radio a few lottery ads. Those "disclaimers" came at the very very end of the ad, were sped up with the voice talking fast and lasted literally 1 to 2 seconds. Barely f...

Re: State lotteries

It is not a choice if you're addicted. Alcohol. Cigarettes. Daily lottery players. Pick your poison - they're all addictions. And once you're addicted, is continuing to feed your addiction really a choice at that point? Even to the extent that playing the lottery is a personal choice, my gripe isn't...

In Arizona - Sinema's campaign is on a sinking ship. Her "meth lab" statement caught on tape from years back may single-handedly sink her. Also the rhetoric is getting quite nasty, and this cartoon appeared in the Arizona Republic yesterday: https://pbs.twimg.com/media/Dp5nrk4XgAEHzqA.jpg:large Flor...

State lotteries

With the Mega Millions jackpot now up to a whopping $1,600,000,000.00, I figured this would be a good time to ask what your thoughts are on state lotteries. In the end, I view the lottery as a tax on stupidity that disproportionately affects the poor. I worked at a store for 11 years that sold lotte...

Re: Windows 10 - Your Thoughts?

Advice on solid state drives - many of the modern crop of drives SUCK because they are TLC drives (triple-level-cell) - these have substantially lower lifespans/fewer read-write cycles. What you want is MLC drives made anywhere from 3-5 years ago. Are these still being made, or available as NOS? ML...

Re: 2020 Presidential Candidate Seeks Wampum

No, I'm perfectly aware of where I'm at. On the internet. In a forum. A politics forum. Dominated by males. With big egos. Do you even grasp the concept that comments that would be inappropriate in one setting are far from being out of bounds in another? Like this one? https://i.ytimg.com/vi/wlRb_k2...

SG - Name for me one specific person who has a genetic defect who was insulted by Matt's 24 remark.

It is hard to insult somebody who doesn't read these forums.

Everyone who laughs at your attempt to insult on the backs of persons with genetic malformations or deficits is also responsible for helping to encourage Americans to insult by demeaning those who have disabilities. Uhhh....no. It was an insult directly aimed at you and only you and had no implicat...

That can't be. Only white people commit crimes. Just ask the various home security equipment retailers.
