Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
We've improved Slashdot's video section; now you can view our video interviews, product close-ups and site visits with all the usual Slashdot options to comment, share, etc. No more walled garden! It's a work in progress -- we hope you'll check it out (Learn more about the recent updates).
Isn't that the exact problem that chatroulette.com solves?
The author does a good job explaining it if anyone would care to RTFA.
You must be new here.
I hate to say it, but I agree. As bad as all the trash talking on Comcast is, I've never had a problem. Setup was easy. The 15-20 minute call to swap out my modem for a $15 one I found at a thrift store was straight forward and easy.
Don't you consider having to make that phone call in the first place a problem?
Nope, not in the slightest. I would expect to have to call to initialize service - as I do for cell phones, pizza delivery, etc.
How about their "support tools" are IE based that won't work in any browser on any platform?
Never need to use them, never bothered installing them. I've seen from someone else's connection what they are and it's nothing I can't do on my own without them (ping, traceroute, search comcast.com help files, etc.). Those Comcast tools exist for the non-Slashdot crowd.
And my current issue with Comcast right now is being in California and Comast routing the IP network cross country to New Jersey at 1/4 the bandwidth I had when they were routing through San Francisco.
My Jacksonville connection routes through Atlanta, my NJ connection yrs ago routed through somewhere in NY/NJ IIRC. My bandwidth has been fine in both places.
Looking forward to IP6 also (though I'll have to get rid of my $100 cheap router for a "real" one)
XKCD isn't half as funny with just the image and not the ALT-text.
Real programmers set the universal constants at the start such that the universe evolves to contain the disk with the data they want.
Not true. Many slashdotter wives are "deeply beautiful".
You thought there was gonna be a joke here, but you're wrong. I know for sure that there's at least one slashdot user with a gorgeous wife (hi, honey).
You were doing excellently to this point

But this is your rookie mistake, you can't let her know that you know. I learned that in year 5 (of 14 now).
try putting in your host file [wikipedia.org] 184.108.40.206 thepiratebay.org or setting you DNS server setting to 220.127.116.11 and then going to https://thepiratebay.org/ [thepiratebay.org]
Wow, they've really made SSL easy. All I have to do is over-ride DNS settings (as you stated) and I automatically get SSL and all sniffing averted. Awesome. I guess I really am behind on this inner tubs stuff. Yeah, right
