If I'm not mistaken, WiFi has also traditionally been half duplex. This may have changed with some of the newer N stuff tho, I haven't really kept up. So that would definitely cause problems. That being said, if a half duplex link can kill NFS performance, I can only imagine what that would have been like in the days of thinnet.
Not to mention, the only actual MAC address that would remotely matter would be the Modem's MAC address. And that would only matter until the next hop when the packet was out of that collision domain (Ok, probably more like outside the hands of your ISP since they have your information on file)
I don't see why people are so paranoid about their MAC addresses, I could maybe see in a coffee shop where someone can pull the AP's logs, but across the Internet, the only one who's gonna be able to see anything relating to your MAC address is going to be your ISP, and considering that they frequently identify customer's by the MAC address of their modem, that's not like its something that can change.
Its not like I've ever ranted about this before or anything.
I don't wear a suit, as much as I wear whatever happens to be closest to me when I wake up, but I care.
That being said, I work at HP, and its nice to know what's going on with the company so I can plan for any future Resume Generating Events.
Last time I checked, yeah, Amazon does have incredible infrastructure, I mean, when they go down, half the internet goes down. I can only imagine that they eat their own AWS dog food.
It seems to be a regional thing. I've heard of people getting fantastic results from Comcast, while CenturyLink in my home town is so shoddy, you're almost better off using something like a MiFi (And I hate using those with a burning passion).
Not even U-Haul?
I just bought a new car a few months ago, and I've definitely noticed my driving style is entirely different now.
I'm all about a simple dash, a stick shift, and few distractions; driving is one of the few times that I can sit down and focus non stop on something.
In my new car, I find my self having to fight bad habits of fiddling with the radio and all the extra gizmos my car has.
Of course there comes the awkward phase of solo hobbyist transitioning to professional work. I've been studying to get into Linux administration, and I'll get talking with some of my other linux-y friends about our latest projects and there's a definite breakdown. They're talking about playing with the latest distros, I'm talking about building a storage pool for a KVM cluster or something. we just give each other mutual blank stares and change the conversation.
