Comment Re: AT&T (Score 1) 151

It did say unlimited on AT&T. Infact up until last month when I finally switched off of unlimited, it was on every bill of mine as "Unlimited Data Plan". I switched because "Unlimited" meant I got 2GB of fast data then, everything after that was painfully slow (2G/Edge), and the 5GB plan was cheaper, and it did essentially the same thing. 5GB of LTE/4G, then I get throttled back to 2G/Edge.

Comment Re:How long until Google is reclassified as a DDoS (Score 1) 113

First, if your site can't handle a hit every couple of seconds, you need to throw it away. Second, there is this little file called robots.txt that you should read about. With it, you can tell the spider how quickly it should crawl your site, and what parts it should crawl. With a sitemap, you can even tell it how often each page is likely to change.

Comment Re:what about render bugs? (Score 1) 12

Well, the same can be pretty much said about both the webkit and gecko engines as well. I actually have more outstanding bugs in those engines than I do edge or IE, and they typically take a lot longer to get fixed than in IE/Edge. Sure, I might be an outlier, but that is my personal experience. I had one bug in firefox that has been outstanding for nearly 10 years, and every once in a while I see someone play with it, only to be kicked down the road further. webkit is pretty much the same, until years go by and then they get closed as wont-fix even though they all have short simple examples, and have been verified to be actual bugs.

And I'm not an anonymous coward. I call out the BS as I see it.
