Unless you need the portability have you though about a raspberry PI, For basic web development its actually not that bad. When i was between offices i used one for a few days to do some basic GL mods it was pretty good tbh plus a whole lot cheaper then a laptop/PC

A refurbished laptop is under 300.

Wait... ya'll getting free money?

 

Nothing is free. An increase in tax percentages when this is all over, is my guess.

Same with us in the UK - all this government funded furlough pay, and company bail outs - they're coming back around for that money when this is all over.

Yeah I agree, it's the most likely thing to happen - same with the national payrises for *some* key workers. ( not bitter ) - it's all got to come from somewhere.

Equally the additional funding grants to the NHS & other healthcare services for C19 related services that magically appeared at the end of March.

Since Trump was in office, he stopped emerging other countries money. So US Americans got it finally? 🙂

Come on, you don't believe that, do you?

The foreign aid budget for America is around 50 billion, which sounds a LOT - but it's less than half a percent of your countries GDP - and nothing in comparison to the estimated 5.5 TRILLION that is already funded to support your own country.

There is no proof that Agent Orange actually stopped any funding, and we have to face a simple fact here. He was only speaking cutting foreign aid because he was talking about the cost of The Wall of Racism.

Oh, and that 50ish billion that "they gave to us Americans", was nothing in comparison to the 900 billion dished out on the original stimulus funds.

So even if we assume he DID stop foreign aid, you're at a 850 billion deficit before you pull out the big bank ledger to provide another one - your country WILL be paying that back one way or another.

Everyone with a social security number does not get it. It goes off your income taxes filed in 2019. If you make less than a certain than you get it. Also doubt people in jail got it since you don’t usually file taxes in jail.
