There have been a lot of items like this made, and we need LOTS and LOTS of articles just like this and the others to keep pouring in… it will protect 3D printers by default. If anything sways the public these days it is emotion. If the government starts trying to take away 3D printers (which they’ve worked on already) from little johnny while he is just trying to print out a replacement part for his forearm… people will go insane. MORE OF THIS!

By looking at the facts… every video they release ‘heavily edited’ – has the unedited footage available.
Sort of like your comment. Instead of linking the entire article for reference, you quoted a particular part of it, referencing the whole. That’s what *real* editing is. Condensing the whole to tell the story in a meaningful manner without altering the overall content.
Otherwise, you’re not likely to read a 100 page article, compared to a half page article. Just like you’re not likely to watch hours and hours of video, compared to a well edited and produced short video.

I don’t think he is… he plainly stated that we need to secure the border and keep the crap from coming in here in the first place, not just state and local programs (AA), charities and such. So the demand is one thing that needs to be adressed sure, but the supply is what really needs to be addressed. And that means sock down that friggin border already.

Don’t require a license for Concealed Carry. There. Finished. There shouldn’t be two standards. No license for open, but license for concealed? Ok… well guess which is going to become more prevalent?
At the very least, get rid of the stupid outrageous fees. I don’t mind the safety course. I think it is a good idea. Offer the course for $25 bucks. Done. Go to the courthouse and receive your ticket. Maybe pay $2.50 so they get their money back and a little extra for each card they are passing out.

Yeah CrazyT, just like that video was designed to fire up the Muslims so they would kill our people in Benghazi. It was an election year right? There was never a real chance of prosecuting anyone in the Administration.
Difference… real videos vs. fake. Real concerned citizens vs. killers. Nujob vs. human being.

Are you serious? The state is loudly proclaiming the continuing investigation of PP. The county and especially city is one of the most progressive in the entire state. Also…
- IRS scandal:
Proven, with tons of public documentation. Barely a slap on the wrist. No further information required.
- Clinton email scandal:
Really, what even needs to be said?
- Oh hell do your own research … there is too many to count both local and federal! You’re crazy.
@Frost – the problem is physical ability. Battlefield readiness. Can women be useful to the military? Hellzyeah they can. Do they make good pilots? You better believe it. As a rule have steady hands and clarity as a sniper? Yup. Proven track record in intelligence gathering and theoretical planning? Check. The list goes on.
However, what people are not getting, you included, is that there *are* differences in the physical makeup of men and women. Which should not be a big deal. Where men have an advantage in upper body strength and ‘damage resistance’, women have other advantages which make them in some cases ideal for examples I listed above.
Sure there are exceptions of course. Always are, doesn’t mean you change the order of the universe for a few extraordinary people in exchange for larger loss of life potentials.
The only reason there is a problem with working *together* to *enhance* and *support* each other while becoming the most efficient and insanely advanced fighting and defense force on the planet, is grade A BS.
Women and men both are designed to compliment each other. Not try to get each other killed for no reason other than to ‘prove a point’. That is just the science. Whether you believe in God, science, the tooth fairy, it doesn’t matter. It just is.
More importantly – who cares? It shouldn’t matter if we would just work together and get over ourselves.

Wow, that’s the dumbest cartoon I’ve ever seen… lol!
Plenty of gay people can’t stand New York ‘values’ either. But, since they’re gay… it’s perfectly acceptable to lump them all into one giant bubble together. Whatever.

Yeah, yeah, yeah. She’s as guilty as a wet cat in front of an empty fish tank with scales around her mouth. What are you going to do about it? She’ll sit there and clean herself while nothing happens at all.
Until you are ready to actually announce you are on your way to retrieve her from wherever she is at and put her in a cell, I don’t want to hear about it anymore.

@duke – In all the years my friends, family, customers, and myself have owned Android devices, I have never witnessed this. I hear about it all the time so I believe you and I know it must be a big issue.
The only thing I can come up with after speaking with other technicians and reading up on it is that most likely it has to do with installing ‘unknown quantity’ apps. Another likelihood are ‘too cheap’ Android devices from big China resellers like Alibaba and DX. The uber-cheap tablets come pre-loaded with port-ware / virus tech that leaves the device open for purposes of remote data collection. Causes all kinds of bugginess as well.
Even these devices can be rendered stable with a wipe and install of a new ROM, but your average user doesn’t have the knowledge or skill for that. Why should they?
Same thing happens with ‘too-cheap to be true’ iPhones. They work great for a little while, then the app store won’t work, you end up finding out you have a counterfeit unit, and by then, if you’ve entered in your account info – it’s long gone into someone’s database. It’s just the world in which we live these days.
I strongly urge people who are not technician types to purchase name brand from reasonably reputable vendors. These days you can get nice devices for pretty darn cheap anyway.

Good job zap – reaching for an excuse for your brethren again?
Segregate people by color, because you see a need for ‘special attention’.
By design – you are most definitely implying you believe this color needs more ‘special attention’ than the rest. Misguided indeed. Offensive most definitely. Calling a particular color of person an idiot – yes absolutely.
Otherwise, you would simply have support groups for those having difficulty in school, etc. Which most likely exist. Most schools have programs for such.
I hope that none of the young men go for it. I wouldn’t want to be singled out as some dumbass, grouped together with house full of dumbasses! Are you kidding me?
‘Welcome to campus kids… over here is the special housing area – the White House of Special Attention, here is the Ebony Egress of Enhanced Education, and here we have the Muslim Mosque of the Mind… don’t mind the construction… it is just being rebuilt again.’
What a maroon.

Sorry that is a complete Myth:
Even a quick look on Justia…
Murder and Nonnegligent Manslaughter
Manslaughter by Neligence
Situations in which a victim dies of a heart attack as the result of a crime are not classified as criminal homicide. A heart attack cannot, in fact, be caused at will by an offender. Even in instances where an individual is known to have a weak heart, there is no assurance that an offender can cause sufficient emotional or physical stress to guarantee that the victim will suffer a fatal heart attack.”

I am stupider fer havin’ red that messege

I don’t think you guys are getting it – it is not that the cop should be blamed for shooting the kid, at the same time however you’re missing the point that the only reason they are blaming the father is basically proximity, and they hate the guy. Which I don’t blame them.
Officer shoots several times at a suspect fleeing a scene – puts him in the hospital. 2 blocks away a stray bullet kills a kid jogging down the sidewalk. Guess what? Guy in the hospital is not getting charged with that kids ‘murder’. The difference? Proximity, circumstance, pity.
The guy deserves to go to jail just on what he did and his actions. For friggin murder? I don’t think so. That’s just me though and feel free to flame away. I won’t stop you. Enjoy yourselves.

Ok you want to do this? Fine. The premise remains… which do you prefer:
- Open platforms
- Proprietary platforms
I am not contesting the trackpad love you have. I’m pointing out that a singular preference that *you* have does not wipe out others. You consistently proved my points all throughout your garbage responses.
So I don’t have to go through 3 unbelievable posts to reply here it is in a nutshell for you:
Cheaper, high performance parts and devices for the end user. End users that do not desire or require a particular trackpad, etc. If that’s your thing great. It’s also where you are missing the point and why I used the term ‘hipster’ – you are singling out an item that most end users could care less about. Have no need or desire for the best trackpad, compared to the best performance overall targeted for them.
There is your conundrum. Point is… I don’t have to buy anything other than what I want or need. Apple does not give you that *choice*. You either fit into their boxes, with pre-defined performance grades… or you don’t. end of list.
On an end note – Jailbreaking and Rooting are not the same thing. One grants you access you should already have to your phone, the other grants you access to completely replace the entire operating system if you want.
In the end – you *act* like Android / PC is ‘beneath’ you. Just re-read yourself. You and those like you self-fulfill the ‘app-prophecies’, etc. If you’re stuck up – it’s not my problem.

Yeah in Missouri it is on the spot check and go. I bought my little plinker / squirrel gun – .22 Heritage revolver at the local gun shop. Background check took less than 5 minutes. Paid for my gun, a brick of ammo, a cheapy holster, and left the building. Got home 20 minutes later and was halfway through the brick of ammo by the time I was too wobbly to hit consistently anymore. My first 6.5″ barrel. Friggin’ LONG man. lol
 January 28, 2016 at 1:09am
Thanks East. Yeah it sucks. I don’t know why people do things like that, but some people just don’t have that part of their mind / soul that provides morals I guess.

Hey lower – I started on a Timex Sinclair 1000, then TRS80, then IBM clone, and so forth. Had a Macintosh SE for a while… it was a boat anchor. No compatibility for peripherals – all Mac all the time. Uber expensive at the time as well for everything. I dumped it like a hot rock, went back to a cheap IBM clone, monitor, printer, modem, etc. with a couple of bucks left. Unreal.

I beg to differ. It just depends on the truck. I drove a 24′ box rig Peterbilt to deliver supplies back and forth from the warehouse to a hospital and all its clinics for years.
It held 90 gallons… of regular unleaded.

I disagree. I find it is whatever you were indoctrinated into – and I have been using computers since before Apple / Macintosh / etc. were born. As they came into being they were nightmares of proprietary mayhem. Whereas IBM and clones were able to be repaired in the field. Cheap. Lasted much longer, etc.
As a web developer, software developer, 3D model designer and animator… you would say you prefer Apple. I have found I much prefer PC.
Plus – there’s a reason Apple switched to x86 architecture, and their OS is ever closer to a standard linux kernel. Stability. I use primarily Mint and Windoze for gaming.
