Isn't that cute. I really need to learn how to exploit this so I can obtain a free mini super computer running at least 16 quad core cpus, 256 GB ram, graphics capabilities to match and maybe quad fiber internet connections so I can download adult oriented video 1000 time faster. Oh happy days.

I edited this because my original description of adult oriented video in a simpler 4 letter term was filtered. I love filters. Hey, check the Phoronix forum. I don't think they have any filters.

Hm. In the country I live in, at best Cisco would be taken off the government's supply contracts, and at worst they'd go down for fraud. As for the federal nitwits who funded the purchase, sadly, the one thing this country lacks is a law against stupidity.

Meanwhile, the US is 34th, behind such economic powerhouses like Romania, Hungary, Portugal, Andorra, Lithuania, Latvia, Republic of Moldova, Aland Islands.

KCUF the US telecommunications industry and the POS politicians enablers.

Yep greedy bastards don't want to invest more cash into the infrastructure as they are still getting top dollar for the old one.

It's just here in the U.S. the fat cats ain't finished with us yet.
As they haven't asked us to stand up and pull up our pants yet. :shock:

That doesn't piss me off as much as the American Sheeple that don't mind bending over. As greedy bastard's will always be greedy bastards you just have to stand up to them. But unfortunately our society have become mindless twits that as long as you don't puncture their "Comfort Bubble" and they don't run out of KY jelly then all is well.
