Slashdot will always be your site in my eyes, and in many ways it's shaped my career. While I can't say I've visited nearly as often in the past few years, when I do I always get nostalgic as soon as the green and white appears.

Thank you for creating and maintaining a the best place for intelligent geek discussion for so many years.

Best of luck!

I'm in Hoboken which is densely populated. I had the lowest end cablevision package (part of a stupid "triple play" bundle). When the pricing expired on the triple play I canceled all 3 and opened a business line in order to get an SLA and a static IP address (and in order to ditch cable tv).

Without exception both services have been my most pleasant broadband experience. Just now (8pm locally) I got 12.08mbps down, 2.0mbps up. I can't recall the last outage I had.

It's funny.  Laugh.

+ - The Secret of Civilization and Technology: BEER

Submitted by Jones Waffleson
Jones Waffleson (1090103) writes "Charlie Bamforth, a British academic who holds the most fabulous of titles — the University of California's Anheuser Busch Endowed Professor of Brewing Science — claims that the secret of civilization and technlogy is beer. According to him (and Homer Simpson, I guess) if it were not for this golden liquid we would not have computers, the iPod, Silicon Valley or the space program. All I can say is two things: I agree and mine's a Duff."

Never worry about theory as long as the machinery does what it's supposed to do. -- R. A. Heinlein
