"How about this: the color of the light emitted by CFLs and LEDs is ugly, and sometimes even hard on the eyes (especially with LEDs)."

I call bullshit on this one, I've got both incandscent and cfl in my house (incandscent for dimmer switches). I cannot tell the difference as far as the colour of light goes. There is a slight delay in cfls delivering full power, but its really not worth complaining about it.

"If you consider my above statements to be "crap" then you shouldn't have skipped class on the day they talked about the light spectrum. The spectrum emitted unquestionably differs between lighting technologies."

Maybe you should try getting out once in a while and trying new stuff with a open mind rather than just trying to bitchslap anyone who may consider disagreeing with you?

You have to be kidding, this has been going on for a year on my server. They did nothing to fix it, just took our money. Their reputation in England is worse than toilet water at the moment. I dont care what their terms of service say, spending between 30 minutes and over two hours trying to get into instances for around a year is totally unacceptable.

I currently spend what probably amounts to several hundred pounds a year on music/films. I do not illegally download the stuff, if I start getting charged £20 a year in tax I will stop buying legal copies and start downloading (what will no doubt still be considered illegal) copies. This will be a net loss for the entertainment industries, for the retails, and ultimately the government. These industries really are doing everything they can to destroy themselves. I'm surprised there isn't a shareholder revolt, the executives certainly don't have the best interests of the company at heart.


+ - IPv6 Cutover January 1, 2011

Submitted by IO ERROR
IO ERROR (128968) writes "An internet-draft published this month calls for an IPv6 transition plan which would require all Internet-facing servers to have IPv6 connectivity on or before January 1, 2011. 'Engineer and author John Curran proposes that migration to IPv6 happen in three stages. The first stage, which would happen between now and the end of 2008, would be a preparatory stage in which organizations would start to run IPv6 servers, though these servers would not be considered by outside parties as production servers. The second stage, which would take place in 2009 and 2010, would require organizations to offer IPv6 for Internet-facing servers, which could be used as production servers by outside parties. Finally, in the third stage, starting in 2011, IPv6 must be in use by public-facing servers.' Then IPv4 can go away."
