• On a laptop, is a SSD better than a SATA?

    Both SSD's and HDD's use SATA as a connection. SSD's are faster, especially if you has the higher speed SATA that can handle the full bandwidth of the SSD. They have SSD's that now work on the much faster PCI-e slots that exceed the bandwidth limits of the SATAIII connections.

  • Is there something I could purchase to solve my problem?

    Does it have a Display Port? If so, the Display Port provides for higher resolutions and keeps digital as digital. Likewise if you have a DVI input port. If you only have a VGA input, they do make converters from HDMI to VGA but there will be signal degregation due to converting to analog.

    While there are ex-christians who have become atheists, it is hard to answer this question because you are effectively asking how do you rationalize with an irrational person? The answer is you can't. The person has to finally get to a state of mind on their own to desire the truth as opposed to feeding the delusion that irrationality causes. Many ex-christians became that way when they sought to become better christians by getting answers to problematic areas of their belief, only to realize instead of answers they went down of rabbit hole of more questions with no satisfactory answers.

    The Democratic Party has been losing credibility under the Obama administration, which is why the GOP had gained a majority in Congress, but when the GOP gained a Republican President, they did not follow through with their plans about ending Obama Care and showed division on most other issues, which erodes confidence in the GOP as well. This has been the game for quite sometime as we bounce between Democrats and Republicans to get them to actually do something for Americans. This is the whole reason Trump won. Trump is neither Democrat nor Republican, he is just a businessman using common sense to fix this country. While both political parties are not trusted, the Democratic Party is not what it once was and has become like Europe with socialist liberals calling the shots and attempting to destroy this country. As bad as the GOP is, they are not nearly as bad as the Democratic Party currently is. The American public is beginning to wise up to this fact. We need a new Party that allows non-politicians to run that actually care about fixing problems more than their political careers.

    Because a "real" possibility has not yet be demonstrated for the possible existence of these magical super Beings. For example, life on this planet demonstrates the "real" possibility that other life may exist elsewhere in our universe that I can be agnostic about. To be agnostic of magical super Beings is as rational as being agnostic of any other magical being/creature that has zero possibility demonstrated. Only existence can leave evidence to share, nonexistence cannot. So it is not a matter of evidence in either direction since nonexistence by definition cannot leave any. So the question becomes is there evidence or not? Most agnostic agree there is not but grant the possibility because so many irrational people claim that Gods/Goddesses do exist. If it were magical fairies instead of magical super Beings, these agnostics would grant the possibility for the same reason. Now if we actually discovered magical fairies, now magic is a "real" possibility and I would have to abandon atheism for agnosticism. I still would not know if any exist, but at least I know a "real" possibility exists due to discovering real magic.

  • Trying to break into computer networking without landing in poor house? Advice?

    Technically all an employer is concerned with is can you do the job.

    Technically all an employer is concerned with is can you do the job. While the normal path is costly degrees and certificates to determine qualifications, if you can demonstrate/sell yourself as capable outside of these normal steps and there is a shortage of people, there have been people to break into fields without going through the normal route. The reason there has to usually be a shortage is because if it is you vs. other people with the normal qualifications, they will most likely get the job. Another way to get into a field is to look for a company that cannot compete wage wise with other companies and as long as there is not too many people looking for those jobs, you can get in because you would work for less in order to gain work experience that counts far more than education and certificates.

    Most workers are motivated to get ahead, so no. Capitalism is by far the most superior system, though not perfect. It certainly depends on the individual in terms of what constitutes their well being. Communism has always been about the well being of the "state" at the expense of the workers, which is ironic because it takes workers to be well off in order for the state to truly be well off. Corruption is built into our human nature, so the reason communism never works is because every time the government becomes corrupt with power. The reason Capitalism wins out is because it takes advantage of that built in corruption where the common citizen has a pathway to become their own business and share in that corruption. Because no single entity has a monopoly on human corruption, the government cannot have full control because of businesses having their hand on the state of the economy because they are (producers) and businesses don't have full control of corruption because government has their hand on the rules/regulations for businesses to operate in that country. This keeps an balancing scheme in continuous motion where we have bouts of government winning, businesses winning and citizens winning. In a capitalistic society, the citizens and businesses get to keep the fruits of their labor which aides in fueling motivation. Socialism is about the "state" and not the individual, which strips motivation if it is just going to be taken away and supposedly given to an individual with less motivation. If you tell a business they can only keep the first $200,000 of their profits, if that comes at the end of one month, why keep the business open? Send everyone home and them come back next year for one month's worth of work.
