  • Commented on Why I want Bitcoin to die in a fire
    True but... Consider this. Why are the Anglos (English, Irish, Scots) the most racists of ethnic groups in the USA? The Scotch-Irish (basically protestant Irish immigrants) were among the most vehemently pro-slavery ethnic group in America and post-civil war, the...
  • Commented on Why I want Bitcoin to die in a fire
    I think selling miners is a very good way to max profits in the whole BitCoin scheme. It is the Next Gen that is (always) worth the most. The next BitCoin is by design much easy to find than BitCoin+1....
  • Commented on The regular holy war ...
    IMO moving to Linux says, "I really enjoy messing about with my computer as a hobby." I dont think that is true with Linux anymore, at least not for me. I have been using it professionally for several years. I...

    I actually was able to buy a Dell Inspiron with Ubuntu installed from Dell's website several years ago and it has ran all the latest versions of Ubuntu flawlessly since. I program for a living but I am not one...

  • Commented on A Bad Dream
    Well a lot of it they are doing nothing with. They are currently storing everything encrypted on the hope that some day they will be able to decrypt it. Crazy but that is what bureaucrats with large budgets do. They...
  • Commented on A Bad Dream
    @Neol - 16, Then how do you explain Wall Street? Why no prosecutions, why no one, left or right tried to break up the banks? In the US, we fight over social issues but there is a clear ruling party...
  • Commented on Danger, Will Robinson! Danger!
    A great writer should write honestly, and let the reader determine the right or wrong of a character's actions through the prism of the story. I completely agree. However very few writers are great. By definition most are average. Even...
  • Commented on Danger, Will Robinson! Danger!
    I think the darker the subject matter, the better morally your lead characters need to be. You have to show that you as the author disapprove of this world you have created. Complicated characters that do evil but still love...
