Bank of Queensland.
My bank gives me a simple "export" button that lets me pick from several export formats (including csv and what I think is some sort of Quicken format).
Wouldn't it make more sense to send take-down notices (or if necessary, file lawsuits) against the owners or hosting providers of the sites directly?
Same with any pirate site or other illegal content they want to block, its better to go after the child porn sites directly than to try and block them at the ISP level...
+1 to this, when I moved into a new apartment, I ruled out whole suburbs just because they had crappy internet. I am currently getting DSL sync speeds of about 9/1 or so which is more than adequate for my needs (including all the crap I watch on YouTube and various YouTube clones and downloading large git trees and big files related to various game mods I work on)
If that was true, airlines wouldn't be changing any number of routes from having a few flights a day on big airplanes to having many flights a day on smaller planes.
And what about when the router you use is an all-in-one provided by your ISP and you dont get a say in which one you use?
Like cable companies that provide a cable modem/router and dont give you any choice but to use theirs.
Or things like Verizon FiOS or AT&T U-Verse where they provide the same (modem/router in the one box)
Don't blame Verizon for signing this "bad contract", blame Disney.
Disney refuses to sell ANY of its vast portfolio of content to ANY cable provider unless that provider agrees to put ESPN in the base package.
The problem for Disney is that if they allow cable companies to separate out ESPN (into a separate "sports" package, into a higher tier or on its own) then the number of ESPN customers drops dramatically (those who never watch it and those who watch it but wouldn't pay for it separately) which means they have to spread the cost of buying all that expensive sport across far fewer customers.
Your problem is that you bought a Sony instead of (like I did) an el-cheapo DVD player out of China that doesn't have any of the extra crap the Sony does getting in the way.
Nissan should take the Leaf drivetrain and stick it in a Nissan X-Trail or Pathfinder or whatever their smaller 7-seat SUV is these days.
What about the Jeep Wrangler? Does that count?
Why does Canada do what the US wants instead of what is in the best interests of Canada? What would the US do if the Canadians said NO on issues like this?
If ad providers did more to keep their networks 100% free of malware, I would have less reason to block their ads.
Getting big-iron carrier/backbone grade routers and other kit that can do IPv6 just as fast as the current gear does IPv4 is expensive.
There is a federal law that makes it illegal for state authorities, local authorities and community associates/home owner associations/etc to have restrictions on the placement of TV antennas and satellite dishes. Maybe there needs to be a similar federal law regarding solar panels.
My power company here in Australia charges me 0.673700c a day for the fixed connection to the grid and 0.259500c for each kWh of electricity I use. Other electricity providers I have been with in other places in Australia do the same thing (per-day charge and per-KWh charge)
There is no reason utilities in the US and elsewhere can't do the same thing (charge all customers a fixed per-day fee that covers the cost of maintaining and running the network and stuff then charge customers for each kWh of electricity they actually use). Most importantly this should be a change for everyone (with a corresponding drop in actual per unit charges for power to account for the removal of maintainence costs etc from those charges) and not just an extra fee charged only to solar power users.
