Hey ! better be careful ! The last guy who did that ended up on Rumsfeld's enemies list, ended up getting his country invaded.

Oh wait .... you guys always win when that happens :D

:D

actually we already have that "kind of link" here at work, they're installing the one for at home today. not cheap, but works sweet and at least "those guys" know what they're doing. go anywhere else in Afghanistan and ask for FQrDNS and so forth and you're met with that "ooooh... did you see that donkey crossing the street" look. but, of course, they're all friggin' experts...

Well, vishnu, I don't know where they get their numbers from but most people here live on less than 100 $ a month, so 2.4 M internet users? I doubt it. Then again "they" are always so proud to say that they sent 6 million kids to school since 2001. What everyone forgets is that this means that 8 million other children are still receiving no schooling.

What can I say... home sweet home.

Anyway, hakimoto has the "russian" link at home now. :)

And a LANCOM Systems "DSL/I-1611 Office" old but trusted German-made kick-ass router as well. :D

Despite the fact that the US has donated something like $100 billion in nonmilitary aid to Afghanistan since 2002... :shock:

Meanwhile, the US can't afford to keep the parks or libraries open, can't afford to pay the retirement checks that people paid for over decades of work, can't afford any kind of reasonable medical care, can't afford much of anything (except a few trillion here and there for the banksters).

I was recently quoted a minimum of $40,000 for a half-hour outpatient arthoscopic surgery, would you like to discuss misplaced priorities ?

A friend fell down in Belgium, had their elbow reconstructed under emergency conditions, they did a great job, cost $1800. What is wrong with the stuff between the ears of Americans ? Whatever that stuff might be, since it obviously isn't brains ?

During Vietnam, someone calculated that it would have been cheaper to give every Vietnamese person a new Cadillac and no driver training. More of "the enemy" would have been killed and the cost would have been a fraction of what we spent.

The US is pathologically ill. Honest.

Oh hamei, the economy is just a big bucket, the money sloshes back and forth and at this point the money is all sloshing toward the banksters. Pretty soon it will slosh the other way toward the parks and the retirees and the reasonably priced medical care... :mrgreen: :lol:

Ooh ! You guys got a big order for tumbrels, didja ? :D

So Dick Dauch just died .. and it occurred to me that the US is not going to go out with a bang. It will just become more and more irrelevant. In fact .....

Indeed. Case in point: IBM Furloughs U.S. Hardware Employees

Yes. The difference between the United States and Syria is, at this point in time, the United States still feels a need to lie about what the privileged are doing.

First, notice they don't say who these "executives" are. Are they really executives or are they mid-level and lower salaried employees ?

Second, every single one of the altruist $1-a-year CEO stories turns out to be nothing but a lie. Sure, the salary is $1 a year. But the 480,000 no-cost issues of preferred stock, the $250,000 tax break, the 24/7 use of the corporate jet with luxury accomodations anywhere in the world, the girlfriends and whores, the paid-for housing in Belvedere, the cattle ranch in Montana that a chain of drugstores really needed for "research" purposes, I guess all that doesn't count as salary ?

Follow up on enough of the propaganda and you won't believe a word of it, because it is all lies. At least Syrians are no longer naive enough to believe that shit.

As corporations go, at least IBM is not the worst. Maybe that's faint praise but better than no praise at all :D

Of all the computer stuff I've bought, I'd say IBM has been the most trustworthy. I also like the fact that when peecees became a market where they didn't want to be, they sold it instead of whoring themselves.
