Re: HIGH TECH TO THE NTH DEGREE

Sorry, it's a hoax.

oh well, i guess the hair on my arm will grow back. :(

I was wondering if I would need to wax part of my arm to use it, or live with the log in my friend's eye actually being one of my arm hairs. [more]

Re: Star Trek - That's what a transporter is for.

Sometimes there is something that interferes with transport.

But, yes, site-to-site transport, or at least site-to-pad transport is a whole lot more reliable than a foot race ... if you aren't energy-starved.

One wonders why the [more]

Re: These titles are retiring from Netflix strea

Usually if one goes to one's "My List" instant queue page, the titles expiring in the next 7 days will show the expiration date in the "Notes" column. Unfortunately, that often isn't enough time for a series. Once in a great while [more]

Re: "12 Monkeys" SyFy TV Series

I have seen the first two episodes and I preferred the second episode.

I didn't expect killing the person fingered as the cause of the plague would free the future, not just because then there would have been no episode 3, but also because a [more]

Re: Tonight's viewing schedule:

My viewing schedule and the TV broadcast schedule almost never match, thanks to a DVR.

Re: Speaking of DOCSIS 3

*If you pay for anything slower than 38Mbps, then DOCSIS 3 won't make a difference*

Since and average cable node is 50-500 customers, even with a 1-2 Mbit plan you might get better performance with D3 - D3 will hop channels as [more]

Re: Galavant 010514

I really liked it! Some of the lyrics were a bit too explicit for my tastes, but overall I thought it was hilarious and had enough twists that I expect to watch the whole "season"!

Re: Speaking of DOCSIS 3

esp. For residential service, I want ONE address of each type. And a router that does NAT for both.

Actually, IPv4 was originally designed so that each device would have its own unique IP address. NAT (and CIDR) came about to conserve [more]

Re: wifi password security

Make sure the admin password of your router is NOT the same as the WiFi password. (Some people like to assign the same password to multiple things, and this is one of the examples where it is a bad idea.)

Re: Speaking of DOCSIS 3

Re: Internet speeds.

If you aren't interested in my thought process, skip to the last paragraph of this message.

I got 12ms 40.3Mbls and 2.3 Mbps UL

That tells us that you don't need download speeds faster than 40Mbps. :)

Of course, that [more]

Re: Ascension Pt1

I didn't think linear acceleration would do it, but maybe it can.

Straight from Theory of Relativity: you cannot tell the difference between [constant] acceleration and gravity.

I have my PC physically attached to T-W modem.
I now have a new tablet. The nearest available WiFi is 8 miles away - and the library is has limited hours.

Re: The Game - Anyone watching?

I have been capturing it to the DVR but so far I haven't watched any episodes. It's a six-episode miniseries so I thought I would allow the episodes to stack up before watching any.
