sb_jim, I just want to say that I really envy your location. LoCal (see separate thread) is beautiful. Unfortunately for me, not much PC work down there. What area do you practice?

By the way, I did not mark this as a tangent because, as far as I can tell, there is no point to this thread anyway.

You might ask your buddy Guitar Wolf about some things Prakash posted. They were deleted by the mods before banning took place.

I thought the point of the threads in the political forum were to solve the world's problems.

Duh.

No, I think that is a common misconception.

We took care of solving the world's problems long ago. Now we just want to rag on fallout.

And you might ask your Mod buddies about who is who around here.

Coming from a Mod, it makes it sound like I was indeed Prakash which isn't true. I don't remember all of Prak's posts and therefore don't care to have them assigned to me.
