Charter gives me 100/5 for $80/month. It regularly tests out on speed test sites as 95Mbps or so, and downloads from Steam or elsewhere are 10-12MB/s

Most people don't understand the difference between throughput and latency.
All 3 of them?
I had a roommate in college that had an old 70s Volvo station wagon. Apparently it was such a piece of junk that someone didn't bother stealing it but did take the battery late one night (analog clock stopped at 2:30AM).
I was able to get one of the 32GB models for $150. I've been running the CM Android on it for a couple months now and it's pretty good. It's called an alpha, but so far the only big issue I've had was with WPA on the alpha 2 release (wifi going into sleep mode didn't wake up properly, had to forget the network and reconnect). I use it for music, web surfing, Netflix, and a little ebook reading. For $150 that's a pretty good deal, if you can get one.
At work (a university) the central IT has chosen to license Sophos. It is, well, crap to put it mildly and takes up amazing amounts of resources. So, instead we use Security Essentials on many systems. Works well, it has successfully stopped viruses that users have tried to get. Pretty light on resources over all, not the lightest weight program I've seen but up there.
Best one for free I've seen. Personally ESET NOD32 is my favourite and what I license for home, but if the price requirement is $0, then MSE is what I use.
I've been amazed at how much younger actors can appear in a movie than in real life. Watch some candid shots of actors at the Oscars; for some of them, the apparent age difference to the last film they shot is quite dramatic.
Actually, if you want your daughter to pregnant or start having regular abortions at age 9 or whatever, great. I don't want my daughters to be fucked by any old dude with a penis, requiring her to get HPV vaccines and take hormone pills during the time of her puberty and maturation.
I also don't want you telling me how to raise my kids any more than you want me telling you how to raise yours.
And as for "Christian Taliban" when was the last time any "christian" stopped you from raising your kid the way you wanted. HMMM?
People who talk like you have never raised any kids or had to deal with the crap that results. I can't wait till you have a slutty daughter, who is pregnant at 13, by a 26 year old loser.
They're running around in a war zone, you can't exactly send police after them. If they join the ranks of the enemy they're targets.
I agree, and another problem I have with better graphics is that developers inevitably use them to try to achieve photo-realism. This means we get stuck with bland, uninspired art where, in fantasy games anyway, everything looks like an Oblivion clone. The in-game characters look like second-rate actors from b-movies and monsters are unimpressive to say the least. It looks particularly ridiculous when you've got realistic looking characters performing cartoonishly unrealistic actions.
Some people don't like the cartoony look of WoW, but I can appreciate it for it's style and personality. It's colorful and fun. There are certainly other styles which take a more serious tone, but far too often developers go for "gritty" realism.

It's good to get direct feedback - it certainly helps to see other people's perspectives.
At any rate, thanks again, and have a great day!
