It could be 2 hours without the extra $1M. Just hold it at 2am tomorrow and when DST ends there will be another hour.

Austin may be the third city to get Google Fiber, but that doesn't mean Kansas City is all up and running. I live in Kansas City and I'm still waiting for my Google Fiber connection to be hooked up. The fiber is now on the utility pole behind my house, but they haven't run the fiber to my house yet. A recent email from Google stated that it might be as late as spring 2015 before my neighborhood is hooked up.
In the mean time, I plan to improve my latency by hiring Lorenzo Cain to run my external HDs to/from whom ever I'm trading files with.
for casual web browsing/listening to music on my XP machine I'll boot to puppy linux on a usb drive. Whenever I need to run something in Windows I'll just boot into XP after unplugging the ethernet cable.
perhaps, but with google fiber (the tv+internet plan) a 2tb network drive is provided to store tv shows, pics, music, etc. and according to the tos, the network drive (among other devices) belong to the customer and do not need to be returned to google when/if the customer decides to switch providers.
most people (myself included), would ask: "why would I want to pay for cloud storage when I have a 2tb drive right here?" and keep in mind that google fiber will allow residential customers to run servers for non-commercial purposes so if you wanted to, you could access your drive remotely and hence, no cloud storage needed.
quoting an ac posting above "First doesn't mean you get the trademark, the one with the most lawyers gets it."
so Disney, who I believe has enough money and lawyers could sue King out of existence because in the movie Wreck It Ralph, there is a character by the name of King Candy.
is the taco bell target still in the pacific? Mir didn't hit it but I still want that free burrito!
wouldn't Windows 8 be something like this?: http://bit.ly/QK6L7M
Also in KCMO. Arrived at 4pm and the line could have moved faster but wasn't too bad. There were three different lines to sign in depending on what the first letter of your last name is. The p through z line was about empty and the h through o line(the one i was in) had about 25 people in it when I got there. There were two electronic voting machines and scantron sheets. I was asked which method I wanted to vote(I assume no one was asked by a poll worker to use one or the other). By the time I left an hour later, the line was out the door.
I live in Kansas City although not in one of the first phase of fiber hoods. On a local forum we had a discussion about this site already and I brought up the terms of service for residential fiber service.
and hereis the page containing those rules. So without a written agreement you can't run a server. The "providing commercial services" part most likely means no sharing your gigabit connection, not "you can't work from home". I don't think google wants their residential fiber service to be used to start the next facebook.com. They want those entrepreneurs to pay a more for the business service. Whenever google fiber was first announced and what we heard on the local news was something to the effect of it's going to be an experiment by google to see what people will do with a giga-bit connection. At first that sounded like (to me anyway) that they would let us run our own web servers from home, but now it looks more like they just want to offer a web browsing only service for residential customers(like Time Warner).
My question to anyone who has an answer: How could someone use google fiber residential service to get their startup off the ground without breaking the terms of service?
The weird part is that there are a couple of stations still broadcasting analog and normal programming
The countless number of PSAs that aired concerning the DTV transition stated that low power stations would not be affected. Are these couple of stations you speak of major network affiliates for a large metro area or a local community college station?
