Maybe enough for you. For me, I would need to research more to find out what they consider high speed data (which is capped) and 3g speeds (which is what your streaming video is limited to).

Caps and throttling.

I'll never give up my Verizon unlimited. No matter how good looking the Verizon rep is, and no matter how much a month they promise to save me for switching to a new plan.

Now here's a little item I think you might go for in a big way - Dragonteeth mines. Made in the US and used successfully in Vietnam, I might add. These little honeys won't kill ya', but they're guaranteed to take a foot off. Take a couple of samples, take 'em home, see if you like'em, let me know how many you need. Okay?

Investor Tim Draper Announces He Won Silk Road Bitcoin Auction 115

Posted by Unknown Lamer

After some speculation yesterday about the winner of the auction for the first block of bitcoins seized from the Silk Road, the winner went ahead and made his identity public. Tim Draper has won the U.S. Marshals bitcoin auction and is partnering with Vaurum to provide bitcoin liquidity in emerging markets. ... Tim offered this in a statement: “Bitcoin frees people from trying to operate in a modern market economy with weak currencies. With the help of Vaurum and this newly purchased bitcoin, we expect to be able to create new services that can provide liquidity and confidence to markets that have been hamstrung by weak currencies. Of course, no one is totally secure in holding their own country’s currency. We want to enable people to hold and trade bitcoin to secure themselves against weakening currencies.”

How exactly would you "dis-allow" this sort of free speech? Can it never be voiced in open, down the street, in another city, even on a website?

I swear, if you big hearted and overly sensitive types ever form a majority on the Supreme Court, we're all screwed. Please tell us you're just 17 years old and are still exploring and developing your sense of morality and justice?!

The other possible causes are faults.

You seem not to have read the last sentence of the abstract. Allow me: "Testing this hypothesis would require identifying geographic regions where there is interpreted subsurface structure information available to determine whether there are faults near seismically active and seismically quiescent injection wells.
