Comment Re:Cable Too Greedy! (Score 1) 127

I know! All Americans seem to have, like, massive cable bills. I get Netflix for £5.99 pcm, my broadband for £49 pcm (including line rental and an actual landline telephone) and whatever Amazon Prime goes for a year these days...£80 a year? Can't remember. I don't get Sky or anything but it's not that expensive. It's weird.

"but there still is one huge problem for regular people and linux, and that's when you incorrectly shut-down most linux distro's you'll actually destroy your OS ~ install ubuntu (non-virtualized) and force shutdown (for proof)" This, friends and neighbours, is just so much bullshit. You have no idea what you're talking about.

Yup, this is exactly what I do. I'm with Be (now part of Sky) and I get a static IP address for £20 pm. The BeBox (router) has all the capabilities for port forwarding although I found the interface to be dumbed down for firewall configuration which actually made it harder to set up for me :) Been running a CentOS server for all sorts of things for 5 years with no hassles from the ISP.

And I want an ice cream. Doesn't mean it's going to happen any time soon. I suppose it's possible I'll see men on the moon in my lifetime, but I sort of doubt they'll be flying a US flag. Probably Chinese if I had to guess. And I don't think anyone will ever be going to Mars. Or if we do, it'll cost an obscene amount of money, probably fail on the first attempt, people will die and the public will lose their desire to see it happen. Depressing really.
