I guess if you have a house full of people and no option to upgrade over 1.5mbps. I have the "pro" dsl package in my area for like $35 a month. It is supposedly 7.68 mbps. I speedtest at like 5.5. I've had netflix going in two rooms before at good quality. That's enough for me. I can get 600k or so on a solid,well seeded torrent.
Frankly, I've been much happier with switching from dsl to cable about 3 years ago. My bandwidth is much more consistent and certainly less flaky than cable in my area.
ok, I'm not a massive libertarian free marketer, but can't you in most places choose between DSL and cable?
this. Its definitely the support/consultants who make the $ for oracle. I used to gripe about Oracle's horrible documentation, lack of good samples, bad tools, etc, and then I realized (when I got offered by support to get a consultant down there for the nth time) that they have little incentive to document/make their products easy to use).
the RIAA are busy preparing the conditions for a big bang of a new universe with DRM built in at the subatomic level.Unfortunately, I predict that the encryption key will get leaked and they will either be forced to recall the entire universe, or just admit that they can't EVER stop you from doing whatever the heck you want with the content you purchased.
I guess I'm not cool enough to understand what your point is? My link still works.
yeah, I was thinking the same thing. Rule #1: Make it easy to pronounce so people aren't afraid to look stupid saying the name wrong. You think you are going to get critical mass with Ubuntu? Think again.
didn't they say the same thing about ie 8 (that it wouldn't be available for xp?)... My place of business still has XP desktops, and I'm sure its not alone. I'm betting they will cave and produce IE9 for xp.
