I take the point and I think a few valid ones have been made even with the humours sarcastic mocking.


I guess my real point was wondering why objectors don't make direct contact with posters rather than filling up lists with objection?




We were wondering how long it would take Don,

And to answer your question its probably similar to the way people are starting to react to you Don, It's because when we try to explain things you have some far out ideas and don't want to listen, you seem to think you always know best and will write 10 pages of what most of us will want to put a gun to our heads after the first paragraph.... okay I'm speaking for my self here, nothing personal just tired of reading your unrealistic inflated opinions.

DonGould: 
MF is right about the value of web based forums with moderators.  While it is censorship, I like it. 



Alright, I'll bite: it's only censorship if the government does it. If you don't like GZ's censorship policies (for example), nothing stops you going somewhere else, or starting your own forum. If you don't like the government's censorship policies, you move to another country, and even then you might not be beyond reach of those policies. The US government will unilaterally extend it's authority to censor the web wherever it sees fit, for example.

Anyway, the point is, only governments can censor. Everyone else is just asking you to be polite in their house.

As I mentioned before, you shouldnt have had that curry for lunch. It disqualifies your point.

Just received the Intel NUC, with a 128GB mSATA SSD. It came "memory-less" so I've added 4GB I had here handy and going to install Windows 7 Media Center later today. This thing is tiny! 

 

 

Wireless card built-in, three USB ports, one HDMI port, no ethernet.

Wow, that thing could get lost... What kind of CPU and how much did it cost?

More importantly, what kind of camera did you use to produce those fantastic pictures? The resolution and colour accuracy are amazing. Truly we live in the future, my friends!

Apologies for going off-topic.

The camera is great, but resized with the wrong settings. Regardless, it's off topic, so I can put any crappy pictures there.

Truthfully, I thought it was kind of retro-cool, actually. :-)

We bought our son a second-hand Roland TD-3 drum kit yesterday, as he's learning the drums. He thinks it is amazing!

I have no idea if you guys are just continuing to mock me or posting real stuff.

Personally if it's real, then I had no idea Salty had a kid and what MF posted does look kinda cool.

If you're just continuing to mock me, then that's kinda interesting too as I'm planning on attending the INZ meeting this afternoon on cyber bullying.

Have anyone here tried norwegian brown cheese? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brunost

You have to go all the way to the other side of the planet to get it (probably). Will be one of my cravings when I move to NZ I am sure.

It's beyond that. It's now an off topic topic.
