Simple-Simmian Nope (161 comments)

This isn't the Tablet I am looking for.
Supposedly the `market' can do better.
How come it's not doing so?

Maybe if imports were actually inspected at the Border of the USA this crap would not happen. Very little of what is imported is inspected or even properly taxed.

UK Authorities Ban 'Lonely' People From Working With Children

Simple-Simmian Par for the course. (34 comments)

If you want to impose anything that has no logic to it or infringes basic human rights all you have to do is claim it is "for the children" and you get a free pass.

AT&T Blocks Part of 4chan

Simple-Simmian Re:4chan Down (342 comments)

LOL

Knuckleheads DDoS 4chan.
AT&T reacts with blocking /b/ and /r9k/.
AT&T removes block.
Some other knuckleheads launch a new bigger attack across all of 4chan.
Blame goes to AT&T.
Knuckleheads sit back and watch.
Priceless.

DOSBox Sees Continued Success

I see none of that. All I have is a hosts file. All that other crap is un-needed.

Please put the comment count back.

Obama Taps a 5th Lawyer From the RIAA

Simple-Simmian They have an option. (587 comments)

They have to option of just refusing to take these jobs just like you and I do.

The Lawyers guild is now in complete control of the USA.

I would not piss on a lawyer if he was on fire. Sorry to Ray about that but that is how I feel.

Looks like we are destined to live in interesting times.

Google Bans Tethering App From Android Market

Simple-Simmian Re:If only (361 comments)

The reason I don't use my cellphone for "internet" and email is because AT&T wants to rape me economically if I choose to do so. All this crap is useless if I have to pay 50 cents a min for it. Until AT&T loses the put a meter on it mentality I never will.

Why Netbooks Will Soon Cost $99

Simple-Simmian Low income. (221 comments)

You are so right.

Where I live 50,000 a year plus benefits is not low income it's middle class.

I barely use my current cellphone and I would be getting a cut in Internet speed and bandwidth cap if I switched to a wireless account.

Simple-Simmian Simple-Simmian writes  |  about 10 years ago Tomorrow is my birthday! Whee!!! I got two telescopes for myself. I am loving being able to go out and look into space an night.

Well since it's a "new year" for me all the folks on my "foes" list are no longer going to be marked as such. So it's a birthday amnesty for you all ;D. Like anyone cares but I thought about it a few times and decided to purge the list for my birthday.

On another note I had a Dr appointment on friday. He says I will need minor (out paitent) surgery to expand the neck of my bladder :(. Man this stuff getting shoved up the penis hurts. So I bet I have that done in the fall.

Simple-Simmian Simple-Simmian writes  |  about 10 years ago Wow 9 weeks now after having my prostate out and I am pretty much back to normal. I was totally freeked out when I was going to have to do this. The cancer was all isolated to my prostate so I am good to go. Get the damm thing checked.

Well I am getting ready to go in and have my cancerous prostate removed on 04/30/04. Being 51 I figured it was the best choice. Radiation would make it impossible to remove later if I needed to do it my Doctor said. So it's comming out. I just hope it hasn't spread to any other part of my body. I just was floored when I heard it was cancerous. All I can tell you is if you are 40 start getting your PSA (prostate specfic antigen) levels checked. I am 51 and the usual onset of it is in men in their 70's. Timothy Leary died from prostate cancer as did Frank Zappa. I don't want to join them. I am glad I have very good health insurance. They have already spent over 3 grand and I haven't even been in the hospital yet.

If you are on my foes list you got there by being someone I would rather not read. Actually when I have had mod points or meta moderated I have given good moderations to 2 people on my foes list already. You got on the list for assholery in your commenting. I think I should be up front about that. I won't mod you down for being on my list. I just wont read you postings unless I have moderation. I read at -1 anyway.
