Two kinds of prostitutes.
Those who give it in the arse and those who take it in the arse.
"Two sources within the RSC told the paper that Khanna's was fired after complaints from Republican Representative Marsha Blackburn (R-TN), who received large amounts of campaign finance from the media industry, and from media industry lobbyists."
Getting sacked by these people like these, is actually quite a compliment.
The flying flies were funny to watch.
We of course in Australia, had squillions of the little sticky black bastards - covered in them.
Every time we got a hot northerly wind, it blew billions of them southwards into the city.
One lunch time in Australia, I sat in the playground and killed about 72 of them.... in half an hour.
Then the CSIRO had to introduce dung beetles from Egypt, that could handle the billions of tons of wet aussie cowshit that the flies bred in... and sort of rooned my plan to spend the rest of my life angrily squishing hundreds of millions of sticky black bush flies.....
So seeing the fruit flies buzzing around in microgravity - it's a funny thing.
Pity there was no vid of the spider making a cross cage jump onto one.
That would have been good to see.
Actually... something smartera.
OK I am worldly and wise but what I do know about, and what I am proficient in, is merely a matter of practice...
Some I practice much and some I practice little.
While I am sort of probably getting the term wrong, with that Apple patent theft / of that little diagram of the transformer coil and the capacitor, the term, "a charge coupling" transformer?" seems to fit the bill?
I have seen shit loads of that circuit in transformer design circuits.... Inductive coupling...
That circuit is as elementary as basic wire wound transformers, light bulbs, resistors,
Like a half wave pulse rectifier.......
This Apple patent scam is fucking crap. "Oh we are taking out a patent infringement on something that has been around since Voltair took a shit one Sunday morning, or was it when Layden took a piss in a jar on Monday morning?"
Ooooo this such bullshit................
There must be some 400,000,000 circuit diagrams in the last 200 years before the meat heads at Apple ever fired up their brain cell over the issue.
Re: @Tony Rogerson
Here Here for Wi$e, and his unscrupulou$ observation$.
Nicoli Tesla... Edison, articles from popular mechanics - in the 40's and 50's about electric cars charging at the stop lights...
Even articles in the 60's, etc., all the way through to now.....
Something about Electron Volt or some thing.....
Wireless recharging of consumer goods.....
When are we going to patent a way to kick Apple lawyers in the balls without getting caught and sued for the patent?
But what about DOOM and DOOM II
That game kept billions entertained for decades.
I was especially fond of the after market / community games / wad files.....
The HUGE halls and vistas and the full on multi story buildings with rooms, passages and chambers inside them...
But it was like a drug habit that was hard to kick.....
I kind of really enjoyed all of that - and I'd like to gather up all the many hundreds or thousands of levels and games that were independently developed on the Doom Wad file system.....
But I'd like to "get over it" and stay over it for good, I think.
I am still really impressed with the size and dimensions of some of the scenes that were developed in it.
Re: Not shocked...
What? We are more technically advanced than the Merikens.
We are the FATTEST nation on earth.
We have more psycho petty burearocratic tyrants at every tier of gummit, from the community volunteer sector, to the propera gummit.
We waste more resources, fuel and have more pollution than anything - and we are smart enough to ship it all over seas for pennies, poison their air with the coal and shit, and buy it back for squillions, and we do far more drugs than the Merikens....
We have no future at all....
Our scientists have just discovered hydrogen goes down at the south pole, where on the north pole it goes up.
What is not to be proud of?
If my retarded brane even functions this far back...
I think the Sony Walkman or derivatives of it, had them.....
And I recall in a prior life time, that we had them in the bombers and wireless sets in WWII - and earlier.
I feel fucking old...... with vauge recollections of amazing shit that barely happened.
Ohhhhh the HUGE lazer disk.....
Enormous HDD's and then the Blu Ray that was "blown away" by the astronomical pricing, lack of content and high cost of blank disks.....
Another Sony and the rest of the DRM nazies fuck ups.
An epic failure that promised so much and then fizzed out......
And the romances of cyber sex in second life.....
Re: And this is why I'm an IT contractor
Mr Edwards Demming - the man who got the Japanese industries going after WWII - in his profound cleverness said, "Annual reviews are bullshit" (shortened and refined somewhat).
He said, (more or less) that Annual Reviews are just total fucking mental illness gone haywire.
Some of these videos are parts of series - but they are worth downloading as a higher quality video and studying much.
Much better than all these fucking morons in management.
Re: Android is THE platform to be compatible with
A recent news report said about 50% of facebook users in Australia were fed up with the bullshit and being hooked into the crap....
Thirty-one per cent of Australian Facebook users feel that they spend too much time on the site. This number doubled to 61 per cent among those aged between 18 and 29.
Forty-three per cent of users have thought about closing their accounts, with slightly more - 47 per cent - of those aged between 18 and 29 admitting to considering disliking Facebook for good.
I have dealings with used car salesmen, and many of them are great people who are very savvy - very smart people. And most of them are not hopping around wetting themselves going, "Oh facebook - it's so wonderful."
The fact is that when presented with the fine points in the paperwork, and the total fucking bullshit of a scam fest this ADVERTISING COMPANY and it's management actually is - most facebook users are just plain too fucking stupid - and of the "Me Too" spineless variety of consumers.
As one fule lamented, "If I don't use facebook, then how do I get invited to parties?"
As much as I despise facebook and the people that run it, and their total dishonesty and lack of ethics - they are doing the work, that the idiots are consuming... and paying for in the process....
There seems to be a great parallel between making and earning, and using and paying.
Or smart with money and stupid without.
All men ought to have a rite of passage, by doing a basic welding certificate at puberty.
It's a dirty shitty job, but it's a brilliant skill to have as a hobby.
And it's a nice thing to be able to make things that do not shed rather large fastly spinning chunks of steel at ones lower regions - because of fundamentally bad welds in intrinsically important areas.
Re: Warming up my tube.
A new thought......
Now I am not saying this "IS" the answer.... but it may be AN answer or PART of an answer.
Many years ago, I had a combustication powered pocket warmer.
It was a premixed and pressed rod of carbon, and a few other things, and it was lit at one end, and stuck inside it's case, which was like a case for ones reading glasses, coated in blue felt, made thin pressed steel, and lined with fiberglass wool, in which the smouldering rod was placed.
The idea is that this ROD may in fact be chemically balanced enough to be a SLOW self contained source of heat - thus enabling it to work in the minions of satan land.
These sorts of things.
Re: Warming up my tube.
Sorry I meant "Aluminium" - I was thinking of Uranum for newclear fuel wrods while I rote.
A spin on Kurt Vonnegut....
"An avocation is an activity that one engages in as a hobby outside one's main occupation."
A Reality Check:
"Wherever possible, he had taken the cosmic view, had taken into consideration, for instance, such things as the shortness of life and the longness of eternity. He reported his avocation as: “Being alive.”
He reported his principal occupation as: “Being dead.”
120 years of life ÷ 14000000000 (14 billion years estimated age of universe) = 0.000000009 × 100 = 0.000000857% = Ones whole life will have counted to being 0.000000857 % of the estimated known age of the universe.
However, if you take a more pragmatic approach that there were infinite years before we ever existed and there will be infinite years after we have existed, then your ever having lived at all - is effectively a zero sum game.
Re: demanded that to avoid prosecution he fork over €600…
It's a pity that one cannot just beat these shit heads up.
In the mix of "Hollywood Accounting" - losing 110 million on a movie that grossed 340 million, and cost 55 million to make...
And the scammy "everything" - to do with anything about all of this....
Buy a fucking piano and learn to read and write music and make some albums, get gigs and entertain real people in real venues.
Most of the AFACT RIAAA etc., etc., etc., are just fucking lying crooks anyway.
More dirty money in those "business models" than anything else that comes to mind.
Warming up my tube.
I'd be using something like a thin aluminum tube (old wand from vacuum cleaner) and seating the engine inside that, and putting a 2 watt bulb underneath it... with an air gap of about 20 - 30mm... and a little insulating around the tube.
Everything else is just weight and complexity.
Re: Just like PC's
So here I sit, all alone in my darkened room, playing with my socks.....
"Hello Mr Rabbit"
"A good day to you too Mr Farmer."
"Did you know that TV's are too full of shit and are hard to use - for retarded people?" - said Rabbit.
"Oh I thought the damned things made you retarded" - replied Farmer.
"Ohhhhh really? You mean the idiot news presenters are pretend people just like us - hand up the arse and all, just mouthing shit at each other and their imaginary audience?" stated Rabbit.
"Noooo" said said Farmer - "We are real people, it's the TV that is full of lies."
"Oh" said Rabbit.
Best thing I ever did was throw my TV out - gave it to the accursed junki next door, so he could sit there taking two types of drugs for his brain, while I spend my spare time designing furniture and making it.
TV be fucked.
Re: I've been using Linux since mid-late 1993 (Slackware).

Cancelling my Face Bum account? But, but......
That is where my millions of friends hang out, that are just waiting for me to contact them.....
Oh Friends, Glorious Friends - millions of people I have never met till then,
And when I log into Face Bum - there they are not.....
"Oh do you remember me? We used to sit at a desk together when we were 7 years old - nearly 50 years ago?"
"Ohhhhhhhhhh yeah I remember you, I lent you 5c back then and I want it back."
Ummmm sorry wrong school.
Arrrggghh the millions of FRIENDS.... on Face Bum
So the daily Face Bum email goes....
Tony Abbott - the manifesto man from Team Sleaze....
Who was with John Howard when he declared "kiss arse to George W. Bush" (The oil man and his oilmen friends) to undertake their premeditated war on Iraq, because Saddam had imaginary weapons of mass destruction, all hidden down the oil wells, which had to be found with the bank financed military, the bank financed oil companies, and the bank financed US corporate infrastructure.
Of course millions and millions of people died in the US lead embargoes and attacks on everyone in the middle east..
But Abbott says that is not bullying, that is being a USA / CIA arse licker - comes with being an American puppet government.
So now we gotta protect the kids online...
Is that all the hundreds of thousands dropping dead from the depleted uranium blasted all around Iraq or the fat little snivelers on the internet in his electorate?
Exported from China, and smuggled back in.....

Travelling to there at the speed of light - that's fine if you can actually GET there, and SURVIVE the trip and somehow can live 14 billion years and a few more, and then transmit the signal back... if it ever gets detected...

I mean it's great that this is being done, but I watched the first 6 videos on the scale of the universe, in the Khan Academy and it just fucked my brain.....
I am not saying that you should not see it, and I am not saying it's bad, but your getting fed great information in a very mentally digestable form - and that is the problem.......
I mean it's GOOD to see, but it's just too much to take in.
This whole "size of the universe" business - there is just too much of it, both what is within the observed universe, and how big the actual size of the observed universe actually is.
Brilliant tho, bit it IS just too fucking much.
Maybe I am just getting stupider as I get older..
The more I read about the MOMCSRPCS (Management of Micrsofts chaotic software release product cycle schedules), their short IT shelf lives, and the never ending upgrade cycles, which aside from the cash cow aspect - rather than genuine innovative basis, the more I find:
a) Goose Quills and soot based ink; and
b) Old Ribbon type writers; and
c) Unfired clay tablets; and
d) Pencils, erasers and note pads etc...
The more Microsoft's never ending cash grabbing bullshit, looks like all the excuses that we really need to go retro in a big way.
I mean just how "fluffed up and full of shit" would all the annual reports be if the same people who dreamed up the crap, had to manually indent thousands of clay tables with a cuniform indenture, Babylonian style?
Re: Suppress natural instincts

Falls off seat laughing.
I have spend some time with religious fanatics - and all they are is proof positive, that people can be made to believe anything and to go with it.
Add in a century or two of political interference, whole scale murdering and property theft by the British and the Americans etc., and you have some really committed people who are really off the deep end.
But the religious of all persuasions are basically terds - like the cathaholics telling the cathaholic doctors not to perform certain proceedures, because it's against the church doctrines.
Yes the medical / legal / social fraternaties really are filled with people that spineless and that stupid.
Islam is the same crap - all clubby bullshit.
Intimidation, fear, oppression, guilt, shame, ostracisim, exclusion, manipulation, deceit, abuse.......
And all these manipulative control freak nazi groups.....
I mean I like women and I like sex and I like some "porn" but most of it, most of the time, is less interesting than doing the dishes....
"Ohhh what? Another 10,000,000 naked people having sex and masturbating?
Uhhhhh what else is on?"
And these religious nutjob nazi's dictating their crap into the lives of others...
I have a book from 1570 or there abouts - available on google books, with some religious prick calling out the sinfulness of dancing and festivals.
And I read it - and I thought these nazi arsehole religious pricks and their bullshit - nothing has changed in the last 500 years...
People are still being people and religious nutters are still trying on their control freak social manipulation.
We once had a one in a billion year total Eclipse over Melbourne Australia
The full, total, absolute, TOTAL ECLIPSE - a once in a billion year event, aligned perfectly to the millimeter, over the exact center of our house, in Melbourne Australia - about 35 years ago....
Of course, rather than get all excited and get the gear and go stand in the middle of the park, with a welding mask on and or a pin hole camera etc., rampant dumb fuck arsehole father, decided that going to visit his idiot inlaws that day, half way across the state.... was a much better idea.
Just to think that was only 300K away from the total eclipse - and it just ruined everything.
35 years later, he is still an arsehole.

Hmmmm I have had huge fights with HP / Lenovo....
So ruthlessly incompetent....
I'd KEEP a HP laptop only and ONLY if I was given one....
Then I'd upgrade it to Xubuntu with the Xfce desktop and the Nautilus filing system - with all the amazing bells and whistles - being things that you actually need and use - the genuinely useful stuff.
But HP in general? American Corporations have a real tendency to appoint shit heads and idiots into their ranks because they are shit heads and idiots.
The bag lady from Ebay got a job there.
Actually if your great great great great inlaw of some description, through genuine forged documents, could be proven to have a chalk activated slate screen with wooden borders, and rounded corners, you could actually prove that the cretins in Apple actually stole a design that - well is positively ancient.
I mean I was Moses in a past life and I lead my sheeple out of Babylon and we copied, I mean took our 10,000,000 year old tablet design with us....
So I would be able to vouch that you are my descendant and Apple stole that design too.

"Some 50,000,000 asteroids of significant global depopulation size are being tracked, and not many of them are likely to hit the earth within the next week or so.... blah, blah, blah...."
There are SOOOOOOO many of them coming past on a daily basis, that I think we ought to mandate the organisation of a beer and bomb - bottle popping contest - farmstyle.
Instead of piling up a heap of bottles or cans along the fence, and shooting them off, for target practice, each nuke equipped nation, ought to be given 3 shots at each one that comes past , one for every orbit of the earth....
Sort of a USEFUL nuclear arms race...
With the points given to the best long range shot and the least amount significant atmosphere penetrating bits left over, that end up in the sun or something.
That is actually something fun and useful to do with nukes and the like...
And it has my approval..
Much better than doing the "Oh fuck no - we are going to get center punched in 3 weeks time and there is not a fucking thing we can do about it!!! Cause the only things we have to throw at it are theories... shriek - wet panties etc."
I hope they drag them out of their offices....

My funny joke:
Q: What is the difference between American software executives and a bunch of drunken arseholes?
A: The drunken arseholes have an excuse for their behaviour.
Re: I fucking HATE telemarketers, ...spammers, ...robocalls and ...stupid fucking people.
Your right - but telephone marketers / survey takers etc., in ANY form are a different kettle of fish.
See if I go and buy a news paper / magazine / read online articles / watch TV etc... it's a given fact or understanding that there is a trade off for my wanting to see a program by feeding me advertising, in the hope of making sales, as a way to generate revenue.
If my tolerance for bullshit is at it's typical low point, I don't buy or read the news papers / magazines / watch TV, and I read most online articles with add blocking etc., because I am quite happy on my bicycle and don't want or need 500 adds a day telling me I am a failure for not buying their rolling bucket of over priced shit.
BUT ringing me, it's essentially trespass, - past the front gate, past the front door, and directly into MY home, in MY time and space, usually interfering with my attention to my activities, of doing things I like, with people I like.
It's also completely different to someone dialing a wrong number.
It's a calculated act of intrusion, a callous lack of respect of the dignity and rights of people, and it's not one call every few months, some people get dozens of calls a day - be it either from the same company or a whole range of companies / people / organisations.
I bought my phone and I paid for the connection, so that I could communicate through the magic of electricity, with the people and business's that I want to be contacting, when and where I want to be contacting them.
I never bought and paid for the services, to have an open party to the telemarketers of the world, by their wholesale intrusions into my life, in my time, pushing goods, services, surveys, and other fucking crap, that I didn't want, need or asked for.
It's like that shit hole of corporate idiots called the Commonwealth Bank, who every time you contact them, they then send YOUR personal information to A.C. Neilsen - a telemarketing / survey taker company, who then rings you to ask you about your experiences with the Commonwealth Bank.
Yes - the people running the Commonwealth Bank really are stupid fucks.
And the likes of the people in A.C. Neilsen, I don't want them ringing me up in my own home at night.
When I tell them, "Fuck off and don't call my number ever again" - these arseholes are ringing me, every night for the next 6 weeks.... "
Like I would not do it, but I really am perfectly OK with the idea of some other disgruntled person walking into their offices and shooting the management and staff in their faces at point blank range, or fire bombing their business's etc.
And these fucking idiots into all this telemarketing bullshit, it's like door to door hawkers selling interesting little office nick nacks and useful things.
If one were to appear, say once very three months - that would be good - I'd enjoy that. But when the transition goes from once every three months, to once a month, to once a week, to once a day, to 3 or 4 times a day, to 10 or 15 times a day - well at some stage comes a tipping point; where the interaction ceases to be interesting and useful to being a fucking pain in the arse, and then to that of shooting the fuckers on sight.
The big sign in the door - "NO HAWKERS".
It's like that with the telemarketers - it's not just one calling me once, it's dozens of them calling me and others, dozens of times every day.
These arseholes do it with FAX's - there are so many people who just switch their faxes off when they are not at work or they only switch it on to receive a known fax from a known company, otherwise they get to work in the morning and there are dozens of faxes from all these fucking arseholes piled up in the tray, pissing away their money, time, paper and toner, on shit that they do not need or want, from people they don't need or want to have anything to do with.
Well with the phone, in your own home, in your own time and in your own space - on a land line, you should not have to have these arseholes calling you, and you should not have to go to any measures to stop them from calling you.
It's when the avalanche of marketing, from every fucking idiot doing the saturation advertising campaigns, coupled with gross insensitivity and the intrusive nature of the badly timed calls, from people who by and large are fucking idiots.....
In Australia we have a corporation run by dumb fucks called Telstra, who gouge on line costs, call costs and internet costs, at about 3 to 5 times the going rate - like you can get cards that enable you to call the other side of the world for 1c a minute, and yet the scam artists in Telstra, charge you $25 an hour to call someone in the next town.. then when you fuck them off and hire another company, with far better services at a far better rate, the morons in Telstra then start calling you up, asking you to sign back up with them.
When they are asked "Are you prepared to make me an offer that is as good as or better than what the competition is currently delivering (at 40% of Telstras costs) they answer "No" - so I say to them, "Well what are you calling me for?" and I then tell them "Take my number off your list and never call me again."
Three months later they call me up again, and I tell them to fuck off and never ring me again - three months later, another call etc.. Only I tell the idiot calling me, "You tell your fucking boss, that if I ever get calls you you fucking idiots ever again - I will be going to his own home and pounding on his front door at a time of my own choosing, and demanding an answer from him, as to why you have not taken my number off your list, and why you have continued to call me, when I have repeatedly told you to fuck off."
"You tell this fucking arsehole and his idiot marketing campaign that I mean business - don't ever call me again."
There are some remedies in some countries, for some people - like do not call registries and similar, but I just think they should be burned alive at the stake.
As far as I am concerned they are all vermin that ought to be exterminated.
Hmmmmm any bored of directionless dumb enough to appoint "Mrs Team Sleaze from Ebay" deserve to go out of business.
I am as ignorant as ever on this subject...
But I am getting rather sick of Corporation Apple and their patent wars.
While millions move on, never knowing nor ceasing in their progress, or caring one jot, that the company that sold them (fleeced them) their marvelous magical devices.... has been into or gotten kicked out of one more court case.
The people who run Corporation Apple, and the crap they get up too, are starting to be as news worthy as a rather stale box of cats piss and shit, in a rather small room.
I am not shitting on the car but....
Forgive my failing brain and ancient history and the ton, long ton, short ton, the metric ton (not tonne) and I am sure there are some other tons - probably wet or dry tons.... and cubic tons, and shipping tons, and displacement tons and dead weight tons, etc., etc., etc.
But the last ~4000 lb vehicle I looked at was a V1 Flying Bomb, getting pushed on it's none too fabulously wheeled stand, on a non too fabulously prepared surface - and it took 11 strong men to push it.
4643 lbs.... that is a fucking heavy car.
If you can duck down behind the motors and batteries, you can punch a hole through almost any thing and survive it.
From Multimillionaire to Mobile Home
Several years ago, Tom Shadyac seemed to have it all: a multimillion-dollar career directing Hollywood blockbusters like Bruce Almighty and The Nutty Professor, a 17,000-square-foot mansion, fancy cars, the luxury of flying in private jets, invitations to extravagant parties and more. It was a life many people dream about.
Despite these many luxuries, Tom says something just didn't feel right.
"I was standing in the house that my culture had taught me was a measure of the good life," Tom recalls in his documentary I Am. "I was struck with one very clear, very strange feeling: I was no happier."
Tom says he had been feeling a sense of emptiness for quite a while when a traumatic bike accident in 2007 left him with excruciating post-concussion syndrome. After several months of what he describes as "torture," Tom began to welcome death.
"Facing my own death brought an instant sense of clarity and purpose," he says in his film. "If I was, indeed, going to die, I asked myself: What did I want to say before I went? It became very simple and very clear. I wanted to tell people what I had come to know. And what I had come to know was that the world I was living in was a lie."
Tom says that part of what's wrong with our world—and the lie that he says he was living—is our culture's definition of success.
Five months after his accident, Tom began filming I Am to get to the bottom of two burning questions: What's wrong with our world, and what can we do about it?
"[We have] a very extrinsic model of success," he explains. "You have to have a certain job status, a certain amount of wealth. ... I think true success is intrinsic. ... It's love. It's kindness. It's community."
As Tom journeyed on his quest to find out what would truly make him happy and help unearth what's wrong with our world, he made major changes to his lifestyle. Today, Tom lives in a modest mobile home, bikes to work and flies commercial airlines—and he says he's never been happier.

Re: Only 17 Floors......
All you stupid shits that have voted me down - basically because you ARE stupid shits - that have never been in a situation like this...
In Bumfuck Nowhere Australia - our whole town got wiped out in huge floods about 19 months ago.....
Everyone got out alive, but everything on the ground and in all the houses was wiped out.
After the floods, just take the entire contents of all your homes and business's - pile them out on the street and the council sent around HUGE mining vehicles - the earth moving front end loaders and mining trucks and carted all the floor coverings, furnishings, cars, everything...
There is so much cleaning up to do - and things are just wiped out for fucking ages.....
And there are a lot of people who lose everything......
In a disaster area, just switch the servers off for a month and go hose peoples houses out or something.
Re: About fucking time.
Actually I have had my NASTY global fights with spammers - taking the matter to their door steps, into their offices and assorted acts of genuine ill will.
I fucking HATE telemarketers, I fucking HATE spammers, I fucking HATE robocalls and I hate stupid fucking people.
I hate it when I am half asleep in dream land, laying back in the bath at say 7pm at night, after getting up and being busy and travelling all day from say 4am...
And the phone rings... and I have to get up out of the bath, and race to the phone because it might be a really important call.... and it's some fuck from A.C. Neilsen, asking me to do a customer satisfaction survey, for the bank that I told to fuck off that day for ripping me of with fees or something....
And I had already told the arseholes at A.C. Neilsen to take my number off their list and never call me again....
In regards to telemarketers, spammers and robocallers, would love to have the deciding vote on a jury, for the person who walked into their offices and shot them all in the face at point blank range.
I'd be saying, "Not guilty." - because I don't have a problem with the elimination of shit.
In fact I am all for public floggings with vicious instruments of torture etc.. Burn them alive at the stake etc.
One of the benefits of NO LONGER having a land line in Australia and using a mobile is that you can set the phones to dump the calls from unlisted numbers..... and all the VIOP users - the telemarketers - they are out of luck - because the arseholes don't call people when it really costs them money to do so by using a real land line, with a real number.
I hope these robo caller bastards, all get to share cells with Bubba and his good old boys.

Ummmm 17 floors is actually NOT that high....

But I was thinking that having a manual pump, and an empty 55 galleon drum every say 3 or 4th floor, and pumping the fuel up in short stages - and then just moving the pump, up 3 or 4 flights of stairs, every time a drum is filled - that is a lot more energy efficient than people dragging small amounts of fuel AND themselves up all the stairs as well.
Anyway, what is just so fucking important about keeping one set of servers online in a shit hole of a disaster?
Like manning soup kitchens and helping heaps of other people clean their shit infested flooded houses and business's out, cleaning up the streets, getting super markets hosed out, helping to clean out and gather up all the trash etc..
Fuck the servers.
