    Congress is shocked-- shocked-- that political appointees are not yet tied to this debacle (in the fractional records disclosed). Contempt of Congress a year later still doesn't deliver answers to the lied-to Terry family. I agree with the idea of simply using subpeona-power and walking up/down the chain of command.
    What BS. We pay for this.

    After Pistole's flagrant disregard of Congressional requests and orders, what makes you think anyone else is going to pay any attention to them?

    Agree. Pistole needs to be subpoenaed to testify on a whole range of issues with the TSA.

    How can I 'like' this a thousand times? :)

    It's written "+1000" in Computerese. :)

    If memory serves correctly...

    for(i=0; i<1000;i++){
    this.like();
    };

    or...

    10 FOR CNTR=1 TO 1000
    20 $THIS="LIKE"
    30 NEXT CNTR

    (Yeah, I'm archaic that way.)

    I believe Rand Paul is ready to oblige you...

    Some of us graduated from TRS-80's, and some of us never lowered ourselves from the S/360. This program is written in FORTRAN IV and would have been punched on cards, the way God intended programs to be created:

    Code:
          DO 100 I=1,1000,1
      100 PRINT (6, 200)
      200 FORMAT (' I LIKE THAT.')
          STOP
          END

    On a CDC 6000/70/170/700 series running NOS, we would just assign his file to the null equipment, aka the bit bucket:

    ASSIGN(PISSY,NE)​

    I never used a TRS-80. Did all of mine on an Apple ][ at first, then a Timex/Sinclair, a PDP/11, and assorted others.

    I was never a "programmer" by trade, though.

    My high school had a PDP 11/34A, donated by an alumnus. I learned BASIC, FORTRAN and PASCAL on it, and ended up as a Programmer/Analyst in the army right after I graduated.

    For us non-programmers, does NE = Not Exist?

    Null Equipment

    Same effect, though -- anything written to a file assigned to NE just disappeared.

    Same as /dev/null for certain other operating systems.
