Are you sure that the child in question lives in the UK? Does it state that anywhere in the posting? Or are you just assuming the location of the child based off of the screenname of the grandparent?

I think that the suggestion is to go to a local university to locate tutors and teaching help for the child, not to enroll the child in the Uni.

Personally, I read enough slashdot to know better then the AC on the reactions here. There are few places with more flaming.

See, the removing the default F* keys and making me do a Fn+F* to use it bothers me more then the Sysreq key. I use the F* keys a lot on all my keyboards.

And BTW, using Apple as an example for what is right is questionable.Remember, long ago, they decided that end users did not need the ability to right click...

Unlimited? Comcast yells if you download/upload too much in one month. Note, that the limit is high (currently 250GB/month) but the fact that there is a limit, is by default not "unlimited". That does limit my effective speed to 768 kbps (96 kBps) which is "slightly" lower then the 12 Mbps (1536 kBps) in download speeds that they sell.

What it really comes down to, is that Comcast is doing both. They are limiting the amount you get per month, and the speed you get it at.
