The memes that have been created are clever too, "I don't normally take over C-Span2, but when I do -people watch C-Span2." Of course, the expected #StandWithRand and posting selfies with people actually watching C-Span2.

Just now I couldn't load Slashdot at all, not even the main page!!
... but I'm kind of glad we have people looking at these ridiculous scenarios and planning how to deal with them *just in case*
Those motherfucking assholes are the real life version of the keystone kops --- They always do the wrong thing
Had the assholes really know their stuffs that British soldier Lee Rigby would still be alive today
And the London tube wouldn't have been bombed
The telecom company confirmed that it had not been aware of the hack when it signed the deal in December 2014
Does that mean had Telstra know anything about the hack the deal wouldn't have gone through?
While FBI was pointing finger at the social media as one of the source of huge problems it forgets, - perhaps too conveniently, - that one of the biggest source of problems happens to be >o?the government of the United States of America
We need to re-discover efficiency in programming
Why? There's a reason programming has become inefficient, and that's because in most cases it doesn't need to be. You can't fight evolution
To this old timer this sure ain't a case of "evolution"
It's much more closer to DE-volution
Something evolves to be better
But when something becomes worse, it DE volves
Slashdot used to be superfast
No matter where I happened to be - be it in America, in Asia, in Europe, in Africa or in Australia, - Slashdot loads up fast
No matter if the device is a smartphone or a desktop PC, you could almost always count on Slashdot to load fast
But no more
Now Slashdot takes something like 10+ seconds to load, and sometimes it took more than half a minute to load
Has Dice shrunk the pipe to the Slashdot server?
Jakarta — XL Axiata, a subsidiary of Axis Capital Group and one of the biggest telecommunications network in Indonesia has been in the rocks in 2014, forcing the company to sell some of its towers to PT Solusi Tunas to pay off debts. However, despite the battle for survival and the constant challenges which are constantly thrown in this industry, XL managed to remain one of the top three largest networks in the archipelago providing different telecommunications services across islands. One of the major factors that help the company retain its stand is the increasing demand of access technology in the region and the rapid use of different promotions and telcomm services.
The past six years has seen a rapid change in the types of technologies used by Indonesians to access the internet.
Like many developing countries in Asia, broadband internet connections were once very expensive that users gained access via internet cafes. That was until 2009 when broadband price war was started between mobile operators. There was also a successful deployment of enhanced 2G technology as well as the build-out of 3G in the more lucrative cities.
Until 2009, broadband internet connections were very expensive relative to average salaries, so the majority of internet users gained access via internet cafes. In 2011, monthly internet access fee had dropped to more than 50%. Reviews show that between 2009 and 2012, internet access tripled and Warnet, those provided by internet cafes fell by half.
There are currently around 300 ISPs in Indonesia, 35 of which own network infrastructure, with the rest simply reselling capacity. The mobile operators are the largest ISPs by far, because the majority of users in Indonesia access the internet via a mobile device. Seldom can you now hear complaints on the slow connection or lack of internet access in major cities in the archipelago.
Telkomsel and Indosat are the largest ISPs, and are able to offer both mobile and fixed internet access through their group companies. XL is the third largest ISP. The other mobile operators (3, Axis, SmartFren, Esia and Ceria) are significantly smaller, since the Big 3 holds an 80% share of the mobile market.
Line speeds are similar between all three operators, with connection speeds generally peaking at around 3Mbpson a good day and in a good location. And despite claims by the providers of much higher broadband speeds, most times in Indonesia you are happy if you can get a steady 512 kbps, especially if you’re in a high-density area such as Jakarta’s Golden Triangle.
... then people are actually suffering from 'degradation effect' after they've grown up
... that "Please educate yourself" thing
Do you really think that sheeples are capable of educating themselves??
The fact is that they remain sheeples because they
1. They are not willing to change
2. They are satisfied with what / who they are
3. They do need some kind of 'leaders' to lead them
4. Their lives would be empty if they do not regurgitate whatever their 'leaders' told them
Where I was from it was 100% Asians
Where I am now it's a mix
Where I was in the HS it was 80% Blacks, less than 2% Asians
But when I get to the U the ones who can compete against me are the Whites
So don't gimme that " 95% Asian / 4.9% Caucasian " thing. You know it ain't true
It might probably be in the ratio of 30% Asian / 68% Caucasian / 2% others, but if that is what it is, I say let it be
Don't hit the keys so hard, it hurts.
