What the government should do is just stay the hell out of the way and stop taxing those of us that work our fannies off so that they can give it to those that won't. These projects aren't about access to anyone guys. They are about getting names in the paper. In the end they will fail.

Anything less than 20 is ok by me. 50+ and they get a phone call, usually to tell them to shut off their computer because they don't have a music sharing program running. It's almost always either a virus or a system that's been hacked and is being used as an illegal ftp site. Marlon(509)
