Brilliant, that really brought a laugh - thx. !!
tried to up vote you twice !! Spot on though, and sorry.
I worked for them a long time ago (engineer, for 7 years) - back then they were an amazing company to work for (WFW 3.11. OS/2, SNA server, then NT, W95) but something happened not sure when exactly (but monkey boy rings a bell - was actually there) - Stopped using MS OS'es in 1998/99 and switched to a mix of Linux and MacOS/OS X - and soon will drop Mac. All this snooping has to fucking stop, thankfully I have some say in the matter. Things are going to get a lot worse before it gets better.
More or less did the EXACT same about 6 months ago.
No regrets so far.
reports, seriously. Nothing in the tech press make me laugh more these days (apologies to those of you who have no choice).
for the Talking Heads reference - class !!
The universe is going to be a lot less interesting without him....

They dimmed from full beam to normal headlights, just like you're supposed to. It's not a comment, it's a SPACE SHIP!
Really cool to see a tech rag have its own space program.... Not long before we're looking at an orbit attempt (pleeeeeeeeeeeease)

I'd suggest that you have a double patch option, just for the sheer simplicity of fulfilment once it comes to shipping ....
Two pledges = two transactions (and two times the fees), double the grief with trying to figure out how many of what to who etc....

I kinda describe it as -> looking at a train crash happening in very slow motion ........
To be honest, I hope another nation gets there first, because I think thats the ONLY thing that will kick the US space program back into gear... sputnik and all that...
...his answer to the second last Q ...
"That said, I think people should have some way of getting exposure to it, just so that people who find that they enjoy it and have the aptitude know about the possibility. Not because everybody will want to or need to learn, but just because it is a great vocation, and there may well be lots of people who never realized that they might actually like telling computers what to do. So in that sense I think computer courses in schools are a great idea, even if I do not believe in the "everybody should learn to code" thing."
Don't know what everyone is getting worked up over...
Linus, he's still on my christmas card list...

now I basically leave the email in the inbox, if I can/need to deal with it, I do, otherwise it's left there.
If it's urgent they'll call back after being ignored for a few days.
At the end of the month, every email older that 60 days is deleted.
