People who can't do ...

But don't worry about medical innovation.

  • The Senate Finance Committee's website is optimized for Netscape 4 or Internet Explorer 4.

[Netscape 4 was introduced in 1997]

  • The Secret Service's computers work only 60 percent of the time and many programs run on a 1980s-style mainframe.
  • When State Department employees complained that they couldn't download Firefox, they were told it was because of the "expense"...of the free program.

And, from the hearing on government oversight of car problems, which was meant to catch a problem like the one with Toyota's brake system:

  • Rockefeller said that federal investigators seemed to be reluctant to investigate whether vehicle electronics were to blame for problems with cars speeding out of control because it is harder to detect electronic problems.                         NHTSA “would rather focus on floor mats than microchips because they understand floor mats,” Rockefeller said.
But don't worry about medical innovation. It'll be just fine.

no no ... It's drives me nuts to see these typos a day - or even a year later. Like mama said, people who don't know you, judge you by your shoes.

But even worse is that we used to dress like that. Even in our Business Machines class.
I'm gonna go scronge up ten bucks and get me a three finger lid.
Gold, hopefully.

Reminds me why I used to enjoy taking the stairs instead of the elevator.
