  1. Yes, M@c! It makes me sick to see our government and military use those junky PCs knowing how wide open they are, how much trouble they are to maintain too. Talk about throwing good money after bad….
    And on top of that just about everybody on the planet is in our government’s and military’s networks every second of every day!
    Biggest offenders: Russia, China, and North Korea.

    Glad to hear your son is back safe and sound. Let him know that people he’ll likely never meet would like to thank him for his service. That applies equally to you, Army Bean.

    Think what you will about the war, but the troops who make such sacrifices as the kids in Walter Reed deserve much more than just Macs and HDTV’s. They need to know the rest of recognize and appreciate what they’ve done.
