S&P Pencil Pushers…Don't Tread on Me

Monday, August 8th, 2011

A bunch of chicken-sh#! pencil pushers.  I clump the S&P numb nuts into the same MBA crowd that stopped calling our US laborers people and staff, but instead “head counts.”  After having read their release (highlights shared below), they have screwed with the wrong group of people, the United States citizens.  Yes, we have elected these lawmakers and although they may or may not have fumbled the ball, the responsibility falls on the electorate.  And just like a commercial I viewed a while back about the credit bureau poorly rating the head of a family working multiple jobs to pay off his debt simply because he was paying slowly… that fact was he was paying.

Power Grid Change

Tweaking the power grid’s frequency is expensive and takes a lot of effort, said Joe McClelland, head of electric reliability for the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission. “Is anyone using the grid to keep track of time?” McClelland said. “Let’s see if anyone complains if we eliminate it.”

CableCARD's Slow Death

Tuesday, July 6th, 2010

CableCARD

Most consumers don’t realize that a cable company’s set-top box is not required in order to receive digital and HD program content.  For years, CableCARDs allowed the TV set itself or devices such as HD TiVO to bring provide these features without the need for a cable company’s set-top box.  Greater conspiracy articles have been posted as to the failure of the market to adopt this device, but with all things evolution is on the horizon…  (more…)
