Apple Now this is interesting. My brand-new MacBook Air 11.6" is at my local Apple retailer because either the SATA part of the logic board or the SSD died mysteriously, and here we have Apple blocking PhotoFast from selling their faster, more spacious replacement drives.

Actually my writing is more aggressive than I actually am in reality - the point still stands; army chair experts coming forth believing that since they've read a few books it makes them an expert of anti-trust laws. I'm sure when anti-trust lawyers need to research something the first person they call up Luminair for his pearls of wisdom.

Heh, well the combination of beer and a bit of tantrum just made me laugh a bit and thus I made a pretty poor joke. For the record afaik you are right in what you wrote, although I would personally have voiced it with less venom.

Perhaps you should make an effort to write how you speak, rather than being open and honest about being an Internet Tough Guy.

The only reason you would be more aggressive when writing rather than speaking is cowardice.

I speak my mind freely, and I go to great pains to write exactly how I speak.

Yes, I speak with rather odd, mechanical, overly-verbose and occasionally intentionally-abstruse diction.

I'm not saying turn down your aggression, though I do think it's misplaced. I'm saying grow a pair of something brassy and try acting this way in public to total strangers and see how it goes. If you can handle the consequences, I'll respect you.



Oh, I checked out your blog to see if it had as much vitriol in it. It didn't, from what I read. Didn't have much of interest, but it wasn't a bunch of RAYJ.
Though I can't reconcile the post above and:

What I find funny are the number of loud mouths on the internet who talk the talk but when it comes to making a video with their face on it they scuttle away do their usual 'copy and paste' routine. I used to get really pissed off about them but now I just reply trying to wined them up even more - why should I get myself stressed and worked up over some wanker on the internet? reminds me of the saying, "even if you win a gold in the special Olympics you're still a retard".

You're already worked up, you've said that you yourself write more aggressively than you act afk.
Are you writing about yourself?
Why should anyone have to make a video of themselves to satisfy you? What difference does it make? It's still a human being on the other end of the discussion, but now it takes more bandwidth and time.

Out of sheer boredom and a desire to see if the SD card slot on the X60 Tablet I just got works with SDHC cards:
