I had the fortune of learning most of what I know from an old ATT/Bell Labs dude. He called it the fox and hound.

I think tweedler is genius.

That thumper is the stuff nightmares are made of.

hey man... that fox and hound is a fun little tool... It can be your best friend.

I currently work in a mall...

...well, it used to be a mall. I sit in a cubicle in what was the men's department in a Montgomery Ward store decades ago. Now it houses one of our datacenters and some office space. Other tenants in "the mall" include an urgent care facility, a university department (I think they ran out of room on campus) and a small marketing company. The rest of the space is a revolving door of other businesses... There have been a few for-profit universities, call centers, etc. I think that physically speaking, there can be life after retail, but it needs to be managed correctly.

One of Bill Cosby's most famous roles was as a respectable family man and physician, Dr. Huxtable on "The Cosby Show".

Having heard of, but never played... this was a really fun read. And now I want to play...

I agree that cheaper appliances don't last. But this thing just reeks of MLM testimonials.

edit: hahahahah - and frankly, looking back at my original sentence.... IT is poorly written (and non-punctuated) drivel...

That's what I get for posting so early in the morning... I think my point is - this article didn't give me the sense of real action - he doesn't seem to be encouraging us to write letters to congress, or lobby the appliance companies for change... instead, in his closing paragraph, he gives us two links to his "I'll teach you how to make a living refurbing appliances" business... it just feels like a cheap shot:

"Let me complain about something that a lot of people will agree with, and then people can pay me to learn how to make some money on the interim problem instead of fixing it"

this is just poorly written drivel baiting suckers

KABOOM! Now you're over halfway there. Keep up the amazing work.
