So, what would you advocate? I ask this not with any sarcasm, I am truly curious as to what you think the alternative should be. When one party launches a military assault on a country, inflicting heavy civilian casualties, what should be done? Should it go unanswered, which would invite more attacks?

I should also remind you that a lot of the collateral damage is caused by cowards who take refuge in population centers and who use women and children as human shields. One of the four killed last night was a woman that one of the men was using as a human shield. This weekend there was a bombing in Iraq against civilians where they used a 12 year old boy as the suicide attacker. Where is your outrage at that?

Should I ragequit? Should I speak up in that forum? Should I stfu&gtfo?
If you feel that only your opinions should be voiced then maybe it is for the best. It is a shame though, I hate to see anybody leave because they don't want to hear opinions other than their own.

I am horrified that some think OBL should not have been taken out. I am horrified but I still respect your opinions as different ways of looking at things. I will never agree but then again, I will never quit just because you have them.

People wonder why my country allows hateful people like the Westboro Church to spew their hatred unhindered. It is because we value the right to voice an opinion without being censored by people who don't disagree.

Here's a convenient link if you want to follow the reports updated by the minute: http://www.guardian.co.uk...sama-bin-laden-death-live

"This was a kill operation," he said, making clear there was no desire to try to capture Bin Laden alive in Pakistan.
Well, I stand corrected but, good on them I say! Imagine the security nightmare if he was captured. There would be non-peaceful rioting all across the extremist Islamic world if we simply held him in captivity.

As to whether the burial at sea was proper or not, I simply don't care. We couldn't afford to have his grave turned into a shrine. It still sounds like we paid heed to islamic burial customs. I don't see Al Qaeda caring too much about Christian sensitivities.

All news reports say he went down fighting. Capture wasn't an option during the gunfight.

celebration over murder (not justice) is no way forward.
I truly do not understand how us taking out a terrorist responsible for thousands and thousands of death, and someone who continues to be a threat, constitutes murder. It baffles my mind.

What would you have us do? Invite him for tea and let bygones be bygones? Tap him on the shoulder and say "tag, you're it", then let him go to continue killing innocents?

I consider myself a liberal but that only goes so far. I'm not so bleeding heart that I would simply walk up, shake his hand and let him go.

I am one of those you condemn for celebrating. Hell yeah, I'm happy. The world is a better place without Bin Laden in it. Just as the world celebrated the death of Hitler, we celebrate this one too.

In this country we do not simply let terrorists go. For example, if we caught someone responsible for bringing down a jumbo jet full of people, we wouldn't give him back to Libya for better oil contracts. Is the world a better place after Libya celebrated the release of the Lockerbie Bomber? Now they have made him a martyr for Islamic terrorism. Just saying...

Let's not forget who started this war that is responsible for countless innocent deaths on both sides. The US did not ask for this, Osama did. He started a war and as such, was considered an combatant and legitimate military target. An attack on American soil against our civilians can not be disregarded. Not then and never in the future. Today I am an extremely proud American, as I am every day.

Might've been smart having the body buried on Muslim ground - just saying.
I am sure that the burial at sea was to prevent his final resting place becoming a holy pilgrimage site. We don't want to help him become more of a martyr.

Quote from: housetier
I, for one, do not think that killing people is a good thing.
I hope you are kidding, right? This guy is responsible for the deaths of thousands and thousands. We kill one to prevent thousands more being killed. I'm confident that if we could have simply captured him and brought him back then we would have. The reports I read is that he went down "resisting".

but don't need the power and complexity of a full-fledged word-processor

I fail to see how this is any different than a full-fledged word processor. If I'm working with simple text then I want a quick program with a clean interface. Personally, I use EditPad. From looking at the toolbar, this NotePro is just as cluttered as MS Word.

Does anybody remember what the upgrade price was from 8 to 9? Is this cheaper than the upgrade price will be for 9 to 10? I remember it wasn't cheap.

I wonder if this means version 10 is about to come out? Its about that time.

I just installed an SSD last week into my machine. I did not do a full install. I used a cloned copy of my previous install.

I moved my pagefile and my temp directories to my other hard drive in the system. I also have a 3Gb RAM disk and I direct my Chrome cache to that. Chrome is the only app I use the RAM disk for.

Addendum: unless you're fascinated at the thought of building a H-Mac why bother? For the same money and effort you could do up a very sweet home server. Just a thought... mrgreen

I don't need a server. Why do it? Because I could have a Mac for a lot less than Apple would charge.
65  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Considering a Hackintosh - Anyone Try it yet? on: February 10, 2011, 05:25:02 PM
I'm considering building a Hackintosh but I've never messed with Macs before. The build/install seems to be pretty straight forward and the software can be gotten cheap from Apple. I figure, if worst comes to worst, I could always turn it into a Windows machine. Would a Hackintosh work as well as a real Mac?

Is there enough freeware out there for a Mac that I don't have to spend another thousand on software?

Does anybody know how to get the non-trial version of Axialis Icon WS? I emailed Marc EMILE this morning but haven't gotten a reply. It appears that the trial version is not able to upgrade with the serial number.

See app's thread on this subject.
Thanks, I got it now.

That's actually a neat story in the link. They all wanted the sweaters.
69  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: rare news mail from ESB on: December 23, 2010, 06:25:09 AM
When you say purchase as an upgrade, do you mean I must already own it? Or, can I make an initial purchase with this price?

Edit:
I purchased and got the full suite with no prior ownership. Great price for a great product.

You don't need to convince the wife. Simply order it, receive tracking number, track shipment, send wife to spa on delivery day. Hide NAS behind bookshelf. bada bing!

I'm not sure that being listed on that page indicates something is coming up. I think they have a page for all the vendors who have ever participated before. I could be wrong.

Does the Pogo have a media server running on it? I've heard a lot of good things about the pogos.

I have an older HP Mediavault. I love it but my version is limited in it's expansion capability. It maxes out at 2 TB. Sounds like a lot until you start filling it up. There are newer versions that handle more capacity. They are Linux based and have media streaming capability. No wifi as far as I know.

And yet another reason to use Universal Extractor for situations like this.  http://legroom.net/software/uniextract
What does that do for you? Is the Ask Toolbar something you can delete after extracting and still be able to install the main program?
