I'm sure they would, too. But what's Comcast's complaint about Tor? How is a VPN any less anonymous once you're tunneled through their network to somewhere else and how is the traffic any less hidden?
I turned in their modem because it was crap and I bought my own. It's been two months and I'm still fighting the modem lease fee they're still charging me. Going to the service center is not a cure-all.
In the US it is legal in every state to record a phone call if all parties are aware it's being recorded. In some states only one end of the call needs to be aware. IANAL but in some two-party states the fact that Comcast tells you they can records the call may give you an equal right to do so without notice. You can always tell them they are being recorded, though.
A VPN? That's hiding internet traffic from them, which is precisely their problem with Tor.
Hey, Comcast, continuing to charge me for a modem lease fee when I'm not leasing your piece of crap modem is not so-to-speak "legal". So why after dealing with your customer disservice personnel twice are you continuing to charge me an $8 a month fee for something you can't so-to-speak "legally" charge me?
This company needs to wither and die. The problem is the only other realistic choice where I live is AT&T. If I move across town I can get Time Warner who is almost as bad and about to be just as bad with the merger.
The public service commissions and the municipalities that grant them buildout rights are the only way to deal with this crap, as the FCC has proven useless.
Did you by any chance use the same unique string of random crap at some third-party site where you used your email address as a verification email?
Or look at Bob Noyce (physicist) and Gordon Moore (chemist).
How about they focus more on delivering what they sell?
If you are hiring someone to develop code and you must pick one or the other, pick the person who knows how to code. If you can find someone with a degree in CS, math, physics, accounting, philosophy, a natural language, law, or anything else who also knows how to code then hire that person.
Especially if they have a degree in the subject matter and know how to program that's a bonus. Sometimes the actual subject matter really is CS. Sometimes it's accounting, medicine, physics, geology, or something else.
Saying one must hire a degreed person (with a specific degree no less) exclusive-or someone with skills is just silly. Don't weight the degree heavier than it deserves, but don't dismiss it either.
The best known standard quip about standards itself has multiple versions and attributions. How meta:
‘Mediocrity finds safety in standardization.’ -- Frederick Crane
‘It is not enough that X be standard, it should also be good.’ -- Rob Pike (Window Systems Should Be Transparent)
The two above can be found on the cat -v page on standards"
"Standards are like toothbrushes. Everybody wants one but nobody wants to use anybody else’s." -- Connie Morella
Exactly. 24 were reported and fixed in just this release cycle.
Well, I keep seeing clock rates go up and high-end DIMMs keep having CAS numbers like 9 and 10 despite the rate going from 1333 to 2400 the past few years. (1/2400000000)*10 is 4.16666666666667e-10 while (1/1333000_00)*10 is 7.50187546886722e-10 which looks like a relatively major difference to me.
Why spend $2000 to update from a P4 though? For $350 or $400 a system can show your P$ to be a waste of electricity.
