  1. Not that you need an other reason to stop using this black hole of a browser but http://lifehacker.com/5111184/security-exp...xplorer-for-now
  2. I found this on another forum. It's a registration to get CA Antivirus for free for one year. I remember reading here that some people really like it. http://home3.ca.com/SubscriptCenter/MSTria...on.aspx?cid=573
  3. I don't follow. You put the image on a CD/DVD or an external HD. The images Macrium makes is only the used disk space not the whole disk and it compresses it. My images are 3 gig on one machine and 5 on another.

    I can see this thread getting locked quickley.
  5. There are also several tutorials on Macrium's site that are very good. http://www.macrium.com/tutorial.asp
  6. Brave? Watch a training video or documentary on training soldiers. There is nothing brave here. They are mindless killers. They look forward to going to war so they can kill with impunity. They also like all the flag waiving fools bowing down to them. Bravery has got nothing to do with it. They are hammers and that comes with a price as these 3 found out. Probably one of the lowest form of scum on the planet is a military recruiter. The similarities between them and pimps is scary. They feed on the lower class. Suck them in, pump them up and use them. This flag waiving war mongering BS makes me sick.
  7. How about I just stand over them when they get taken out.
  8. I don't care what degrees they hold. You join the military you check your brains at the door. You follow orders no matter how stupid they may be. You are a hammer nothing more.
  9. I have had enough of this pointless discussion with you. You answer equations you weren't asked and you don't give straight answers to some questions you are asked. You behave like a politician and I don't have time for them either. All I have done is given you a platform to spout your left wing point of view which has nothing to do with the reality of the situation with the car companies. You sound like the guys who head the car unions who have a BS excuse for everything and are completely disconnected with reality. The reality is playing out right in front of you and nothing you say is going to change it. So this will be my last post in this thread. No matter what you post in response to this. No matter how provocative it may be I won't bite. I will spend the time on more pleasurable things like watching the big three disintegrate and knowing you can't do anything but watch it happen.
  10. Well this won't be a popular view point but since when do I care what people think? Our soldiers shouldn't be there in the first place. If you want to put on the uniform and be a mindless government goon than understand that you might get killed. The other side plays for keeps. If our soldiers were there for what I consider good reason than they would have my sympathy but they aren't and don't. I would never lower myslef to being a hammer for the government.
  11. Um what does any of that have to do with what I said. I said the car companies were not very profitable you said they were when the economy was good. None of those stats have anything to do with how profitable the car companies are. So don't know why you posted that. Here is some info for you. Did you know that about 80% of the vehicles manufactured in Canada get shipped to the US? You want to go on a rant about imports and exports and trade barriers. If I am the US tax payer and I'm footing the bill for a bail out. I would demand that the cars being manufactured in Canada be manufactured in the US and repatriate all the jobs. How well do you think the Canadian companies would do than? Imports are up because we buy so may of their vehicles and why not? There better period. You advocate put barriers in place to force me to buy the crap the big three make? Give them even more reasons not to improve. If knowing they will get bailed out isn't enough now we can add forcing people to buy their cars or pay a penalty for buying foreign. The reason the car companies are garbage is because of moral hazard. They know they can screw up all they want and they will get bailed out. They have no fear of consequences. If their bail out is in doubt resort to fear mongering like the CEO's did. I loved their horror stories of how the world would end if we didn't safe their useless asses. They should be let to fail and they will learn or die. Emotional? Maybe. Diatribe that's your domain. Moral Hazard is very real and a major reason the stupid three are in the boat they are in. Both the management and the unions refuse to make the major changes that need to be made. Why should they? 1984 and his kind will wipe their butts for them and pat them on the head and go "there there you guys are doing your best?"
  12. I have been following the car company situation for over a decade. In fact about 15 years. About the time I got into investing heavily actually. In that entire time the big three were never good companies. They were losing market share the whole time and going in and out of profitability. The Asians were gaining market share at the big three's expense the whole time. This is a fact not my opinion. Nissan ran into some trouble in the nineties got their crap together and became very profitable and well run. The big three just keep diving. Burn to the ground shock and awe? Not what I am about. Bailing out losers who bring their problems on them selves I am against. Here is a new term for you. Perhaps you are familiar with it. If not Google it. "Moral Hazard" This is what concerns me.
  13. I don't know where you get your facts about the big three being "quite profitable at the time". They were losing market share by the boat load and have been for years. They may have been making money but they were not in good shape. If they were they would not be in the shape they are in now. they were barley making it and that's why this bump in the road has killed them. Continue to argue that there is no problem. Things are great. They are in great shape. They will live for ever because they are the best companies that ever existed. I will continue to live in reality and invest accordingly. I can assure all the digits in my brokerage account are very real and they wouldn't be there if I seen things like you do. You have debated me for two pages in this thread actually trying to defend the car companies and their loser ways. Completely out of touch with the reality of the situation. Just like the car companies.
  14. Doesn't matter which way the guy leans. He could be so far right wing that he is a Nazi doesn't change the facts or stats he was using. Those aren't his opinion. This is the difference between reality and a debate in political science class. Doesn't matter what should be or shouldn't be. Only matters what is. The "is" is that the big three and their union are more hated than the scum on Wall Street. That's not good for their futures. I was totally against the bail out for Wall Street. They let several banks fail and some were taken over so not everybody got bailed out. Many didn't. They should have all been left to die. That Bail out is known as TARP. It was originally for buying bad debt. It got passed for that purpose. Once passed and the money was in the Governments hands they changed the rules. They started buying pieces of the banks and using the money for things that had nothing to do with it's original intent. It was a 700 billion fraud of the American people. You don't hear $hit about that though. Unbelievable how badly the tax payer was ass jammed and not a squeak from them. To make matters even more ludicrous guess what money is being used to bail out the loser car companies? Yep, the TARP money. The Senate shot down a bail out for them so Bush wants to use the money that was for the bank bail out. Ha Ha Ha I am laughing myself stupid at the American public. Even at that those sale volumes they were in financial difficulty. This is why they have no chance at survival in their current form. They will not return to those sale levels and even if they did they were still bleeding money. They were not very profitable companies that's why when things got bad they collapsed. The Asians were very profitable when things were good and now that things are bad they are still profitable just less so. Well of course their going to take a hit. There is a huge economic down turn how can they not take a hit. They are selling less cars because people are buying less. Simple economics. They are still making money and lots of it. They are just making less than they did when things were good. When things rebound eventually they are in strong shape to pick up the lost market share of the big three. This is the difference between excellent run car companies with flexible and non unionized work forces and poorly run car companies with in flexible unionized work forces. Don't read too much into the Japanese bailing out their companies. That's their culture. That is why their economy is in a 2 1/2 decade slump. They are not an example of how to do things. You better hope we here in NA don't end up like the Japanese. They experienced a similar disaster in the late eighties and early nineties and have not recovered. Their stock market is at multi decade lows. You want a good investment that you can start building a position in now gradually? Toyota. Stock is down over 40% from it's high. Making money hand over fist. Billions in cash on hand. Fast growing market share at the expense of the stupid three. You get a chance to buy a world class blue chip at cheap prices. You also know it's competition is useless. Benefit from the economic Darwinism that you are witnessing first hand. Exciting times for those who did not have their heads shoved up their rear ends. Oh wait those clowns were buying houses they couldn't afford at prices that were unsustainable with mortgages they shouldn't have had from banks that were more stupid than they were. The moronic mary go round goes round and round ha ha.
  15. This is an interesting article on the the car companies and the unions. Seems the majority of people are against the bail out. Judging by the contempt people have for the big three and the unions their future is not good. No amount of bail out money will make people by your cars. http://www.theglobeandmail.com/servlet/sto...PStory/Business
