Wondering if folks can give impressions of Space Cadets. How is the game play on this and what were the down sides to the game. It looks really entertaining and we are a family of four that likes to game.

It's a game that benefits from having someone who knows the game very well.  That person keeps time and can direct players.

Honestly, though, it's more fun to watch.  The concept is neat, but I'd rather be playing a different game and just keeping tabs on the Space Cadets players.

You might be a geek if you get this. If this sounds like something you do for a living, there is likely a sysadmin that hates you. ;-)

It is amazing how words can echo from one administration to another. I wonder if Mr. Robbins has considered his words in the light of the current administration.

Wow! I just feel dirty for having watched this and I'm not sure why. It's the sophos UTM marketing video.

Although tongue in cheek, it goes right at a frequently cited argument.

I grant that some of it matches, depending on your state, such as having to be over 18 before driving alone.

In the majority, however, I have to disagree with you.

* Anyone can sell a car.
* Anyone can buy a car, even if they cannot operate it legally, including vehicles like semi trucks.
* Background checks are not required.
* I do not have to validate my lifestyle meets any regulations to own a vehicle.
* I can mail a vehicle anywhere without really knowing who is on the other end or going through a licensed dealer.
* I can be fined for enhancing my vehicle but not put in jail. Corollary, I don't know of any car part that I can have in my possession that will result in immediate jail time. (See http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2013/oct/23/miller-dc-businessman-faces-two-years-jail-unregis/?page=all)

There are more in there but those are just a few.

Don't even get me started about how crazy it is to become an 03 FFL, much less an 06!

This is what many see as the inevitable outcome of gun control law. The choices given are, become law enforcement, don't own guns and give up your responsibility to protect your family, or break the law.

Ran into this article on the first outcomes of I-594 which is nowhere near Smart Gun Policy.

The link to the View from North Central Idaho is a good extension of this story.

I love how the WDFW seems to be trying to carve out a niche for its people to be able to ignore this law.

I wonder if this applies to any of you out there? I know that my sanity is questionable but that happened before programming.
Being a software programmer is one of the best jobs these days for your pocketbook, but it can be incredibly bad for your mental health.

This is funny, but sad. No wait, sad, butt funny. I'm so confused.
During an education and outreach session in Memphis on Friday, Republican Tennessee State Sen. Brian Kelsey gave Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius a book that he thought she might need: "Web Sites for Dummies." That's why we called it a "gift" in sarcastic quotes. The book...

I am seriously struggling with understanding how the most common rifles in use today are "dangerous and unusual" like a short barrel shotgun.

I welcome the discussion of how an AK fails to meet the common use clause in Heller and how James is more applicable.

On  Monday, October 21, 2013, California’s 4th District (Division 1) Court of Appeal held that the Second Amendment does not apply to semi-automatic firearms like “AK” platform rifles. The decision is below:

So does that mean the first amendment doesn't protect the internet or cable news?  I think not.
