Comment I got mine... (Score 1) 64

I hate to rub it in like a jerk, but I got mine. Two years ago, in Austin, GFBR announced and TW offered 300Mbps/20Mbps service for $65/mo. Then, GFBR took forever to roll it out, so TW raised the price fo $75 and then $95/mo. I downgraded to 200M/20M and bought my own modem to keep the price to $80/mo. Now GFBR is here and I get 1000/1000 for $70/mo. TW keeps sending me offers to come back... sad.

Comment Re:He also wants to roll back civil rights too. (Score 1) 438

The Civil Rights Act fundamentally changed the role of government in people's lives. I think the goals were noble, but the result hasn't been successful. I don't see blacks and whites living together peacefully just because of some law. Furthermore, it really impinges on people's freedom even if they are wrongheaded, which is why I think he would want it gone.

You can, however, blame ignorant fucktards who don't understand the data OR the theory who go around acting like self-righteous assholes when a scientific theory intrudes on their ideological leanings.

Comment In Austin nothing has really changed... (Score 5, Interesting) 258

So they all announced upgrades here in Austin: Google first, then AT&T Uverse, and now TWC. But. Nothing has really changed. Everyone has announcements, but the coverage areas are so small and nothing has changed. TWC has made the best annoucment that their 300Mbps service will be available all over Austin, but not yet. They have offered some date in the future that I'm sure will be delayed. So competition works, but no one is really being that aggressive.

Baloney. What a stupid argument. Here is it, summarized: 1. Here is one mathematical model of a way that memories could work. 2. This method would be computable. 3. But that would mean memories degrade the more you remember them 4. But memories don't degrade the more you remember them. 5. Therefore memories are not computable.

Assignment for the student: find the flaw in this argument.

You cannot blame the theory when the data doesn't match! That is denial-ism!
