Photography has used the term "Slave" ever since professionals have used secondary flashes. This was goin on WAY before computers were even an imaginary item. References to slaved devices can be found throughout the industrial world going back well over 200 years....and this is the first time this has come up?
Some people just need to give it a ****ing REST already! My great grandfather on my mother's side came to the US on a freaking boat from Scotland and my father's family traces back to mid 1800 immigrants from Ireland as well. I have little to nothing to do with these feking "reperations" the government keeps trying to make to the "African-American" population (by the way, pick a freaking country for your nationality--were you born in Africa, or America? By their definition I am Scotch-Irish-Danish-Welsh-American Indian-American I guess). Yet, I have to continually fund these projects with my tax paying dollars.
I AM SICK OF IT! I'll tell you what, you show me someone alive to day who was a feking slave in the US and I will PERSONALLY write them a check. Yeah, I thought so. NOBODY ALIVE TODAY IS A VICTIM OF SLAVERY! If anything they are a victim of their own laziness......I am black and therefore I can't get a break. BULLSHIT! Get off your ass and DO SOMETHING to EARN an opportunity--just like the rest of us. It took me over 3 years to get my foot in the door with the computer firm I am with. I had to constantly submit a resume every 6 months. I continually got shot down. Did I give up? HELL NO--it was too good an opportunity to pass up. I busted my @$$ to get here and make my mark. Now I am lead tech support. I love my job. It's easy work (compared to the other BS jobs I've had in the past). And now I may be in the hot seat because some lame-ass doesn't like the fact that PC's configure IDE drives by Master/Slave definition?!!! WHAT A CROCK OF SHIT!!!!
end of rant....
If it ain't broke don't try to fix it! But, hell if you can tweak that bastard just a little bit more....hehehe.
