Ah, now that makes sense. Thanks for the explanation.
I live within the broadcast range of Boston but due to a hill I'm on (and weather) I only get one or two channels at best. I like to watch American football and having the signal drop in the middle of a play just stinks. Aereo allows me to watch (and pause/record) shows I would normally get fed up with and just not watch. It's a great service to mesh with Netflix/Amazon Streaming/etc. since you get sports and live news. We really like it.
As to why the broadcasters are against Aereo I guess there could be concern about timeshifting, etc. But if I did get solid reception OTA I could just use any DVR to do pause and recording, or even a VCR (ok not a VCR, no TV is worth using one of those again).
Overall I see Aereo, Netflix, etc. as the future. Much like mp3s and digital streaming are the media for music. It would probably be best for the broadcasters to try and figure out how to best make it all work. I still don't understand why a broadcaster would not want Aereo to 'repeat' their signal, w/o it I would not be able to watch the shows, hence not view the commercials.
Half of all people score in the lower 50% of intelligent tests.
You saved me from having to write the same thing.
This storm + That show = Need more shotgun shells
At least I know how to brew my own beer.
Can you point me at the $2.16 lunch? I usually get a really nice sub or salad and soda for $8.03 at a local place but we do have an Arbys nearby.
It'll be cool when somebody microwaves a burrito in the lunch room and random servers drop connection. 3.. 2.. 1.. ding! Hm, server connections are back.
As a Libertarian, thank you. I live in NH and get a lot of calls from presidential survey companies, "In the upcoming election will you vote for the Republican X or Democrat Y." And I respond with "Neither, I'll be voting for the Libertarian candidate Z" They don't seem to ever like that since the little boxes they use don't have that option. I'll be told, "Sir, that isn't an option" and then I get on my soapbox....
Part of why I became a Libertarian was to have an impact. The phrase "The only wasted vote, is the one that goes to a Democrat or a Republican." really hits home and I'm going to start using that a lot. I have a friend with her PHD in Political Science. I thought voting for anything but X or Y was a waste but she pointed out that anybody who usually votes one way or the other is already a notched vote, it isn't going to change. The 2 big parties need me, so what can they do to get my vote? So by voting and being vocal about how I feel I can get the attention of X and Y and maybe they will change a bit towards my direction. So by acting how I do, I impact both sides. If I am a solid X or a solid Y I'm just in the pile to be counted, not to be courted.
It sounds a lot like when a you watch a friend play a hand in poker and you can see all the mistakes, but when you are in the hand you are blind to them.
My wife is on Virgin Mobile (which is the Sprint network) $25/month, unlimited text, data, and 300 minutes. Coverage is actually pretty good. It's also pay as you go and you just buy your phone up front (I think it was $100). It's some kind of LG with Android 2.2. It gets it done and it's really cheap. I would highly recommend it as a way to save $50/month vs Verizon.
Very nice. I actually went here: http://www.convertbinary.com/ To read what that said.
Pretty cool, I'm going to check that out.
I was doing truecrypt but didn't like the extra steps to open a file, dump stuff in, etc. I gave boxcryptor http://www.boxcryptor.com/ a whirl and have been very happy with it. It adds on right to dropbox. It's free (up to 2 gig of encryption) and a one time fee for unlimited. I tried spider oak too but didn't like how it all worked and I'm not a fan of re-occuring costs.
-Put it in neutral
-Put it in park
-Pull the handbrake/emergency brake
-Pull the key/shut the car off
If the brakes in the car fail due to floormats, then a special system to allow the brakes to 'over ride' the gas could also fail for other reasons such as floor mats still just blocking the brakes (which I've never really understood anyways). I could see a new system like this actually causing more problems by making the breaking/gas more complex.
Excellent, I wish I had mod points.
