Ah, well my computers are across 2 sites, i have to drive to work.

I'll look into the configuration you suggested and see if i can figure it out, when i added E@home on mine, it downloaded like 15 E@H tasks and 1 S@H task, so i had to remove the E@H, because i was up against space limitations...

Thought that was why i wasn't getting S@H WU's, because E@H was hogging all the drive space.

But of course, turns out it was just another outage... :)

Democracy is 3 wolves and a sheep voting on what's for dinner.

The constitutional republic sets 2 houses of wolves and sheep, against another elected wolf / sheep, with an, (ideally), wolf/sheep judicial weighing all laws established by the 3 against a document which guarantees the sheep inalienable rights ordained by a power above what men may take away, and limits the rights of government to enforce certain powers over the sheep, including, but not limited to, being eaten for dinner.

At least this *particular* constitutional republic.

I suggest you read that treaty.

That 'everyone' is naturally limited to those with a right to vote.

You are peddling in semantics. Obviously women, slaves, visitors traveling through the land would have been excluded in that time period.

Obo0's promise to sign the UNODA small arms treaty is an end run around the constitution, which would usurp the second amendment by surrendering the constitutional sovereignty of the United Sates to the United Nations.

http://www.un.org/disarmament/convarms/SALW/

This is the promise that is referred to. He knows he could never get rid of the amendment through the constitutionally restricted channels allowed him by said constitution.

The Venetian Republic lasted over 1,000 years. The Athenian democracy was not "pure" given your previous definition (not everybody voted).


That is true, but the Venetian Republic was not a true republic, either, it was a plutocracy for a large portion of that 1000 years, and an aristocracy for another large portion, quite frankly, it was a republic in name only.

The Roman Republic was the same way, it was still referred to as the Republic of Rome, and had a senate, but for all intents and purposed, it was an imperial dictatorship, which is why i only count it's first 500 years to the fall of the Republic.

As for not everyone voting in Greece... If you are going to base that argument on slaves and women not having the right to vote, we will have to limit this discussion to the 20th century onward, pretty much negating the point.

No, but you will only find 1 that lasted for over 500 years, and it collapsed into dictatorship in much the same way ours is collapsing now.

You will not find any pure democracies which lasted over 500 years.

The Greek democracy lasted the longest, and it collapsed after 400, though truth be told, it collapsed into factional city-states long before that.

Which is why democracies don't work, for anything over a city or two.. local identity usurps any overall regional identity.

People will refuse to vote for any process which betters others for the good of the region, and does nothing for them, thus the collapse into localized city states.

correct, since the republicans seem hellbent on running liberals against liberals, i see no reason to bother voting, myself.

I vote conservative.

If they will ever run one again, i will vote for him.

Although, if he (0bo0) makes good on his promise to "Do away with the second amendment", i do foresee a second American civil war in the next 4 years.

I can see you posted on the discussion board without any intention of actually engaging in a discussion, so i will leave you to enjoy your post.

That said, I take people at their word. When i read an email written by a man, who discusses corrupt behavior for the purposes of corrupting a process, i accept his own words on it.

Enjoy your posting with yourself.

Cheers!~

As a Canadian i apologize to the rest of the "World" for the the government we at present have.


As an American, i do the same!~

Why can't a constitutional republic also be a democracy?


No, in a pure democracy, everyone votes for everything, no matter how minor.

Regardless of how far you wish to push your juvenile tit for tat, the fact remains that we are a constitutional republic.

Bandying empty words back and forth over the meanings of 'is' will not be something i am doing today, Mr. Clinton...


The USA is a democratic republic, the last time it was a constitutional republic the Warren court was in session.


Then someone better update the CIA factbook page quickly!

Are you suggesting there is no such thing as mental illness? Your post isn't clear.


I'm suggesting that I accept the disabled, (or specially enabled, if you prefer), as they are, and do not see a need to burn their brains into line with my own thinking with chemicals, as is the practice of most mental care 'practitioners' these days.

Forced medication to bring someone in line with another's expectations for their behavior is not the best practice, in my opinion.

If they are functional, non-violent and happy in their current state, i say offer them whatever help they will accept and leave them be.

I don't see strapping them to a bed and chemically reverting them into someone or something they are not naturally, as necessarily being an improvement.

Medications can help certain mildly disabled people, but socially dysfunctional people who are more common among the homeless we are discussing, are much more often reduced to prisoners of mental institutions, and burned into drooling vegetables; rather than actually 'helped', in any way.

If they are doing well on their own, help as can, but leave them be. No need to imprison them to force your help upon them.

[b]Whatever argument arises if 1% owns 50-80% of total social wealth is very very sick form society bottom line.
In this case "democracy" and "freedom" are keywords to brainwash anyone.



Too bad we don't have a democracy in the USA.

Although, i'm sure you would like one..


I guess that depends on how one defines democracy.


I define it as something other than a constitutional republic, which is what we are.

Republics have stood the test of time, Democracies inevitably fall into dictatorship or anarchy within a couple of hundred years...

Will be spent mostly playing golf, in between vicious fits of dismantling US constitutional rule and sovereignty...

Of this, i have no doubt.

Not quite. Here's the dent our donors have made in the past few months:

I don't see what any of that has to do with providing a timely update on outages.

Sure, a nice new server would be great and all, but i think the effort required to get notices out in and of itself would be minimal and doable even for someone sitting at home on a sofa, just using windows utilities.

After seeing Seti was back up and WU's were getting through, i took the time to go around to my PC's and revert them back over to Seti from E@home...

When you have 9 computers, that takes about half an hour. To set them all back takes another half hour...

A timely update could have saved me that aggravation, that's all I'm saying.

You could even set up an alarm on trace32 monitoring the log to send a high priority email alert to a distribution list, or, if you are *super* lazy, you could set it up to post an alert to the message board itself...

Course, if you had a repeating failure, like an outage, that could result in spam posts, so probably best to have it alert a distribution list.

"If you want them to have 24/7 up time & notifications of what's going on, how about you providing all the hardware & money required to support it?"

That would be a web enabled smartphone, right?

All they need to do is set up a log file, and monitor it with trace32.exe.

Set up ping over time to each server, an outbound and inbound bandwidth ping set for 20k packets, and have the scheduler log delivered WU's to the log as well.

Then, with a smartphone you could monitor the log, see any interruption to any server, any interruption to the outbound WU's, any bandwidth constraints or interruptions to the network, and from home, make a post online detailing whhic server is down,, and or what the problem is.

You could even sprint for a laptop if you wanted to spend some real money, and remote the servers or the monitoring PC.

Course, now we are talking nearly $600.

I'll spring for that though, if they are short.

"And, to use your style of argument, that lists a "one-off" of a mere 6 Giga-tons of gas emission into the atmosphere".

yeah, an insignificant source of CO2 nearly wiped out humanity...

Seems CO2 really isn't important after all..

thanks for clarifying my point.

Ah, sorry.

Can you name a system of government in history that has been different under?

Didn't think so...

I'll stick with the republic myself.

At least i have freedom and liberty to pursue the happiness i desire.
