@joshstrike if (you.cantRead(this)) { youSuck(); } I disagree. "if" != "}" So the open and close represented visually don't match. I've always found this to be more difficult to look at once the ifs get nested. Still, its a preference and the only rule a developer should adhere to is consistency. If you like Egyptian, you better do it all the time so when others have to change the code they're not fighting syntax too. ... You "fix it" to Egyptian before you give it back to them? Congrats, you get today's pompous ass award.

HACK: Write end to end apps that transform the packets to a cheaper alternative over the wire. Problem solved regardless of what happens. With the right P2P app we can build an internet on top of the internet. lol

I was frustrated with my waste service provider so I cracked open the phone book and found 3 advertisements, 2 for my existing provider. So I call up the 3rd and ask their rates. To get the process of switching over to them rolling they ask for my name, phone number and address. It turns out I was already in their system. It was the same company but advertising under a different company name for a different location in my area. What I thought was a choice turned out to not be one. I have 2 choices of internet providers in my area. I've used both and they both have bad customer service and poor billing practices. If we want to change anything it should be regulating their business practices, not throttling bandwidth. The internet is a utility in my opinion and should be treated as such since tax dollars are what got the whole thing in place to begin with. We the people paid for the infrastructure.

Great, so now that you've endorsed these drives we'll probably see them go up in price. :) I read the Feedback at Newegg, it's not good for both drives. I'm interested to see how long these will last in your laptops.
