    2020 US Presidential Election

    I agree with the principle that people who support one side should feel a democratic obligation to vote, but making it a legal obligation could be counter-productive, and fraught with difficulties. You sound like you are reasonably politically 'engaged', so you probably have a reasonable idea...

    2020 US Presidential Election

    That's often the case - It's unfortunately the nature of the "first past the post" system. If you don't vote for the winner, your vote counts for nothing. I personally still vote just-in-case, but where I live in the UK (Swansea East constituency), the Labour Party have held the seat by a...

    2020 US Presidential Election

    But the more devout Christians are not going to want people to be required to vote on the Sabbath, particularly as it would require polling staff to "work" on the Sunday. Saturdays on the other hand are still a work day for a considerable proportion of the population, and a lot of people not in...

    2020 US Presidential Election

    There's one thing I don't understand about Trump / the Republicans consistently complaining about mail-in ballot fraud. I've not heard anyone (correct me if I'm wrong) allege that the Democrats openly encouraged their supporters to exploit loop-holes / failings in the system in order to get an...

    2020 US Presidential Election

    You appear to be assuming politicians act in the best interests of the nation, and not their own self-serving agenda? :rolleyes:

    Shiny New Forum Software!

    Has the RT logo at the top of the page changed its link? I'm sure it used to load the forum front page, but now loads the main RT homepage? The way it was done on the old forums (with a separate "Ross-Tech Home" link) seemed more intuitive to me. Most forums are broadly similar navigation wise...

    Vehicle Diagnostic Protection SFD

    Maybe there should be a mouse-over tip on the forums for "security" in quotes - I'd suggest "profit" or "money-grabbing" :rolleyes:

    To register a 2nd hand interface in your name you mean? Yes, Ross-Tech charge $99 USD for that. With the old HEX, KEY or MicroCAN interfaces you could do so via this product in their store: https://store.ross-tech.com/shop/vudot/ I think with a HEX-V2 or HEX-NET you just submit a new...

    Keyboards

    If you spend long enough in IT jobs, it becomes second nature to type by touch, even if not doing it the 'official' way. That said, due to a medical condition I largely have to type one-handed now (and with the wrong hand), so I'm spending more time looking at the keyboard than I used to...
