BradMajors lots of people have patents (224 comments)

Lots of employees have written and filed patents. Employers are fully aware that these patents are the property of other companies and they can not use them. Your situation is different only to an insignificant degree.

BradMajors Re:Lots of cheap carbon stuff (652 comments)

Nope. Hiking is not a environmentally friendly form of travel. CO2 is expelled from one end and methane from the other end. For environmental reasons please choice an alternative form of travel.

Lost Opportunity? Windows 10 Has the Same Minimum PC Requirements As Vista

BradMajors Windows XP (554 comments)

You didn't mention Windows XP.

A reason why so many computers are still running Windows XP is that they can't be upgraded. Microsoft added the requirement that the CPU must support NX which many of the old CPUs running Windows XP do not support.

Energy Utilities Trying To Stifle Growth of Solar Power

BradMajors Re:net metering != solar and 10% needs new physics (488 comments)

The light outside might LOOK ten times brighter than the lighting inside Walmart, but it's actually 10,000 times brighter. Your eyes are very good at seeing in a wide range of light - from candlelight to full sun, a million times brighter.

I don't understand why companies like Walmart are putting solar panels on their roofs when they could likely save more money by putting in skylights instead.
