WaveCable decided to increase my bandwidth from 3/1.5 to 10/3, and my monthly cap from 100G to 300G. This pleases me greatly.

I have a friend here in northern Cow-a-fornia that has Wave and pays about $70/mo for 50/10. It makes me very jealous when I visit there.

And what *are* you using for Internet up there on the mountain? I hope not dialup?

Right now, 6 meg DSL.

FREE!! FREE AT LAST!


Got rid of Charter and went with ATT U-Verse

Best I could get here.. But 50 MB D/L speeds.. wheeee

and much faster ping times.

U-Verse is like DSL (because for all practical purposes it *is* DSL) in that it gets better as you get closer to the head end. How close is your home to your neighborhood's VRAD? (That's the big white box sited somewhere in the area)

Waait a minute...

This starts to sound suspiciously like a 'oughta move closer to where you work' sort of motif.

If you're a brain in a vat, a fat, low-latency pipe to the office is a pretty good substitute for living closer to work.

Ipso facto, it follows that Aahz needs better net access.

Must resist and implement DTN method to queue up data.

Let's find out how close Aahz's house is to his VRAD. Only then will we gleefully pass judgment!

(I'll lead the charge! I've got fiber directly from my home to a central office 0.6 miles away! And I'll set myself up for ridicule when the part of the fiber under my yard breaks because they buried it so shallow that parts of it are already surfacing.)

And I've got a 72 element quad-Yagi array directing a full duplex RF connection amplified to 1.5 kilowatts through an amplifier w/ a power supply regulated through a bank of 8 1.2 gigawatt flux capacitors, anchored to a temporal-displacement data augmentation compensator...

Does a fucking partridge lead to two turtle doves?

Bubble eyed turtle doves I would bet.  Damn recombinant DNA experiments gone wrong.  How many turtle doves does it take to surpass the station wagon full of tapes these days anyhow?  I know tape capacity has increased a bit, but not sure how much info you could shove in to a mutant turtle dove by comparison.

I haven't personally tested the throughput of a mutant bubble eyed turtle dove under laboratory conditions, but I suspect it could beat out a stationwagon full of tapes for bandwidth with just one bird as long as you don't throw stones at it.
