internet should NEVER be turned off!
Authored by: zahadum on Oct 05, '07 10:45:30AM

* as for pollution - nope, my information devices are powered by clean, reliable buclear energy ...

if your supplier is using coal, they do have the choice to use _clean_ coal technology - so that is just a matter for you to advocate as a consumer & as a citizen (to get proper environmental regulation by govt).

dont blame your the mac for a problem that is caused by the P.C. ... that's a small pun :-) ... 'pc' as in political correct fear mongers who oppose one the only rational forms of energy production (which are: fisson: fusion; hydrogen feul-cells - everything else is nice but everything else is just tinkering at the margins).

* as for being wasteful ... rubbish!

in the future, our home servers / media hubs will be on 24x7 ... downloading HD video (legally or pirated); collecting voicemail from voip; running a proxy server as a public service, so that dissidents in Burma & China etc can escape internet censorship; provinding NAS services for media up-streaming like 'Sling'; proving metering services for utilities; proving security alarm services (jumping to wifi mesh on a ups if a burular tries to cut wirelines); etc etc.

in other words, this silly comment about turning off the internet is made by someone who doesnt _really_ use the internet seriously.
