Make sure you google "Heart Taxation Act" first before you consider giving up your USA citizenship..... lol the fact that this law was written by Charlie "tax cheating" Rangel and this never gets mentions still continues to crack me up.
In Australia they have "no tariff" content eg Internode serves up video and game servers from their caches without measuring the content (well used to when I lived there).
Sure....as soon as time warner/Comcast etc are prepared to give up their monopoly status then they can go to timed metering......while they operate as a monopoly....they are there as a service to the people
Btw for any geeks into solar weather......be sure to check out S0's daily 3 minute briefings on all things earth and solar weather related - http://www.youtube.com/user/Suspicious0bservers

yep....for my next trick...get me a 10 year old who can show you how to get around the filter
Uhm so the USA state department announces has jurisdiction over the internetz......all your base belongs to us - http://on.fb.me/14ahI2G Considering MtGox is a Japanese company the state department can go and suck it......hopefully there is one company somewhere that says....yeh thanks but you're no the boss of us.
I often worry about the route Australia is taking in "aligning itself" with the USA (eg the 5,000 marines in Darwin). I sometimes wonder if I should just take the blue pill but I often wonder does Julia know something I don't that means we need them there....or should we really be pushing for them to be expelled asap and for us to stand alone like the Switzerland of the pacific?
Yet another lawmaker who doesn't understand guns and how easy it is to "fire" a projectile.
..and these are the people that lead us and make decisions that affect our lives.
I think in the future elected officials must answer a pop quiz (multiple choice to make it easy for them) in order to make their vote on a political motion.
still got one of the shirts somewhere
I'll just leave this here DefDistDEFCADMEGAPACKV3.7 and LIBERATORGUNDEFDIST So Mr Glenn E. Smith

Considering all the other radiation sources we're being exposed to lately.....kind of pointless.
I noticed on Fred Wilsons blog today that the FCC endorsed "BoxeeTV" device has been announced - http://www.avc.com/a_vc/2012/10/boxee-tv.html This was sort of announced recently along with the FCC decision that cable tv providers no longer need to carry unencrypted cable http://www.theverge.com/2012/10/15/3506030/fcc-allows-basic-cable-encryption-protects-consumers-open-access (guess those washington lobbying efforts paid off), One point of note the FCC announcements indicated that cable providers only need to offer this for free for 2 years and then will be allowed to charge for this from then on http://www.slashgear.com/fcc-cuts-boxee-a-little-encryption-slack-but-not-forever-15251887/ , I cant find any information from Boxee about what these costs will be from the cable providers to make BoxeeTV work? I'm also curious about "storage in the cloud" and whether Boxee expects any patent challenges around this? eg would be a shame if an injunction strikes down the cloud portion functionality. http://blog.collins.net.pr/2012/10/boxeetv-announced.html
They will need to record a copy per person. CableVision had to do this in order to get around these issues a few years ago. Cheers, Dean Collins http://www.coganation.net/
