  1. Life member of NRA, 2AF, and here. Also a member of Illinois Carry, and SASS (Lt. John Dunbar) Just signed up for TFA, GOA and FPC. Thanks for the inspiration, Guys! Not much to feel good about right now, but this DOES feel good!
  2. Not sure what you mean by "technical debt." Here's what Wikipedia has to say about it: PLEASE TELL ME THERE'S A MORE SIMPLE DEFINITION !! ??? Technical debt (also known as design debt[1] or code debt, but can be also related to other technical endeavors) is a concept in software development that reflects the implied cost of additional rework caused by choosing an easy (limited) solution now instead of using a better approach that would take longer.[2] As with monetary debt,[3] if technical debt is not repaid, it can accumulate 'interest', making it harder to implement c
  3. Here's what you want to buy. These are my best ideas after retiring from 40+ years of this stuff. I'm not going to elaborate on any of these, just Google them, then decide. You're on your own, because you're not paying me a dime! ATOM CRLBF EXPI FAN Wind energy. Imagine that. GDXJ GLD ICLN LIT NIO RIOT ***Buy, but at this point not much! It's a pure Bitcoin play. They make Bitcoins. Buy a little bit, if Bitcoin goes nuts, you're golden. SLV SILJ SPXU is a 3X ETF on the downside moving value of the S&P500. Importan
  4. Mostly. Being kinda greedy right now. That's probably not extremely smart.

  6. Sounds like a few grumpy bitcoin missers around here. If you'd been on the train you'd have a lot of $$$. I caught the train, made a serious multiple, and don't intend to take the train back the other way, FWIW. It is a bit like the tulip mania a few centuries ago. It's all about the timing, and it doesn't even have to be real. If you cash out though, that's real. There are a lot of governments, regulators, and taxing entities that are drooling about bitcoin even more than greedy "skies the limit" pseudo-investors. Not to mention hackers.
  7. Maybe this deal is done. If not, somebody needs to do this! The Ruger SR22 is one fantastic sweet shooter.
  8. David, upon further reflection, I guess if I was in your position and felt the responsibility that you have taken on.....I might see it exactly as you have described. If this was my show I wouldn't want a s**tstorm either. Thanks for doing all that you do for us. It's got to be an immense amount of work.
  9. I understand what you're saying, but I am mystified as to why individuals cannot moderate their own feeds, rather than having that decided for them. Do we need that much protection? If we get that much protection, we don't even know what we just got protected against. It's not a deal killer, I love this site and have had terrific conversations and buys/sales/trades with great guys here.
  10. I might ban them from my house, but I would not presume to ban them from other people's houses. That's the difference.
  11. Color me weird, but I really don't get the whole censorship thing. I do think the mods do a great job, for what they do. I'm sure they've shielded me from things they deemed smart for me not to see. But I don't feel that I need that protection. Any member of this forum can ban/censor any other member, so why not let the fights go on for those that choose to participate? Anyone and everyone can opt out! Why the babysitting? That said, yeah, if some of these discussions turn into crazy threats, etc, fine, do intervention. Short of that, ideas should be able to be freely exp
  12. I don't go through any gyrations to minimize my entertainment/news/etc costs. Why people chop chop chop on their costs for cable etc mystifies me. It's great to have lots of choices without having to think about them so hard. Life is good.
  13. Thanks immensely, hipower, for representing all of us so well.
