Comment Re:DSL shouldn't be considered broadband any more. (Score 2) 104

DSL is faster than Comcast in my city.

I got 100 megabit down / 25 megabit up VDSL2

VDSL is soon going to G.Fast

G.fast over copper = gigabit dsl

G.fast has already rolled out in Europe in few cities as it was recently standardized after several draft versions.

VDSL2 is now slowly upgrading to VDSL2+ to give 100-500 megabit dsl

but im happy with 100 megabit dsl... Comcast in my town don't even offer half of that.

and DSL is unlimited with free newsgroups access unfiltered here.

my usage just from 1 pc on lan from dumeter is 422 gig, my 2nd desktop a torrent box is at 328 gig
tablet is at 277 gig
laptop 56 gig


been subscriber ever since dsl first began in town at 1 megabit went to 3, 6, 12, 25, 50, now we are at 100. soon is 500 then G.Fast rolls in we get gigabit dsl.

Comment Apple took the name Iphone anyhow. (Score 5, Interesting) 89

Those of us on internet in late 90's remember the most popular voice chat software that even worked over dialup. It was hugely popular among ham radio operators as being one of them, we got the ok to setup links to 2 meter and 70cm band repeaters, after not the greatest of verification but it wasn't a disaster.

1995 article on the original iphone: http://www.wired.com/1995/10/i...

it worked damn good over dialup for what it was, even allowed calls to landlines, and ham radio links, it was great for those days, and of course peer 2 peer

Comment Venmo steals the money if you own a certain Toyota (Score 1) 321

Guy had work done on his Toyota and used the service to send money, as it wasn't a dealership.

He also had his money stolen and refused to be returned to either payer or payee.


There is a Toyota Isis the morons have zero common sense.

They just scam with arbitrary keywords. Paypal/Capital One/Discover/Bank Debit cards don't care about "comments" they look only when it goes outside the U.S. to verify.

Comment Re:Forbes treates Firefox privacy as ad blocking (Score 4, Interesting) 112

That's why I run the best script for grease monkey plugin ever.

Adblock Detector Blocker for Grease monkey.

You can watch Hulu ad free, have zero ad or paywalls anymore on news sites. Read the entire new York times without paywall pop-up.

Grease monkey with adblock detector blocker
Ublock adblocker
No script

3 greatest plugins ever to enjoy a web like it was when I was working for isp in 1993+ erases social media and ads from the net and unlinks all sites from each other via social and analytics sits, blocks statcounter, Google analytics, Alexia, etc.

Comment Re:Is it called ad block plus? (Score 3, Interesting) 169

Adblock plus does not accept any money to exclude any sites.

It uses the exact same blocklists every adblocking service uses, from adblocking at dd-wrt level router plugin to Alternative-DNS a free dns servers that block ads at the dns level:

the only thing adblock plus added was a checkbox that defaults to unchecked. But if you do check it the only ad it will allow is adsense. Yet noone checks the exlude.

I have 7 blocklists in my adblock plug, from peter lowe's list to the "Adblock Detector blocker" list.

with adblock detector blocker, you no longer get sites that say "We detected you are running adblock, blah blah blah"

also by not allowing the detection of adblock you can now easily block ads on sites that have embedded ads in video like Hulu. :P

There is also a greasemonkey script to hide and block the detection of adblocking plugins.

Anti-Adblock killer: http://userscripts-mirror.org/...

Adblock plus does not get paid to exclude any sites. that's a false statement as the code is open source. you can allow adsense if you want to support some dumbass youtuber begging for sheckels or just leave it off as it is by default.

And never run just 1 blocklist, get the ad blocking list, then get the peter lowe malware, social media like, plus, share, all social media embeds. And block statistic gathering like Statcounter and Alexia from measuring your visits.

Comment Re: President Trump isn't "owned" by corporations. (Score 0) 605

I'm voting Trump for 1 fact

he's ANTI liberal political correctness.

it was the liberal democrats that invented political correctness and the word racist/racism as "brainwash" tools to force large groups to think how they want them to.

Richard Henry Pratt invented the words in 1902 (sources all dictionaries and history).

The democrat used a human experiment on the native americans, he promised the liberal government he could make the indians hate their culture, hate their own people and leave reservations becoming taxpayers.

He invented "racism, racist, multiculturalism" and by using political correctness forcing some speech to be banned or punished,in just 1 generation he had the young native americans calling their own people racist and they turned their back on their language, heritage and left the reservation after being brainwashed that racial pride is evil! only "Americanization" is righteous!

The right called this liberal political correctness a "Cultural Genocide"

every 60 years it happens again history repeating itself.

the last time was in 1968 the end of the baby boomers just before the start of generation x and the rise of ANTI-PC majority that lasted until the mid 2000s even our television shows turned to anti-pc to reach out to the majority.

The Democrats fell after Richard Henry Pratt was exposed for the cultural genocide he created with political correctness and that racial pride, cultural pride, heritage and national pride were to be celebrated not demonized for brainwashing!

then it all happened again in 60's with Liberals using Gestapo tactics against citizens, beating protesters and gassing them.

Here is the fall of the democrat party that began in 1968, 60 years after they fell due to Richard Henry Pratt, remember it's a 60 year cycle.

Democrats turned on their own, as a moderate said the neo liberal's behavior was atrocious causing a riot among the delegates inside the democratic national convention:

While the delegates were fighting inside, the folks fed up with BIG government Left Wing Liberal Political correctness protested and were treated to jackboot gestapo tactics which every protester's civil and constitutional rights were broken, as protesting and free speech is protected by the bill of rights.


Then a short 1 minute summary of the Fall of the Democratic Party that after the strict political correctness led to era of republicans 10 in a row.


So we that vote for Trump are voting to END liberal political correctness and this era of "sissy" millennials and media who are hypersensitive, hyperoffended, and believe in entitlements.

Trump will at least bring back the anti-pc era we had in 70's- mid 2000s after the liberals BLEW themselves up in 1968.
