Do you think that you are being throttled because of your usage or that your particular distribution center is overloaded? I know where I'm at, I mail it one day, they receive it the next, and the next movie goes out for the following day.

It might actually be a problem on the mail delivery side, but it could be your particular distribution center. I just wanted to say it's not the universal experience. But I rarely go through more than 1 disc a week because of my viewing habits.

It might last for a while, but conservation is still not sustainable.

An oddly strict definition of conservation....not using it at all would fit under the definition of conservation. Or saving it all for a global emergency to survive a volcanic winter when solar and hydro give out. That's what I was getting at. There's no reason we shouldn't know where it is and be ready to mine it just in case.

I said nothing against going to nuclear as a primary fuel source. It's perfectly feasible except for one small problem - no one will do it or approve it. With that standing as a major roadblock to this day, we still need to conserve what we're using.

I think it's great as long as they can keep the SNR in-margin. The problem is that at certain times of the year, my cable service is just plain unreliable - especially for VoIP - even when uncongested.

I don't subscribe to TV, because they really overcram. I wish they were just using better QAM, but they're also overcompressing the channels on top of that.
