LG G3/G4 http://www.lg.com/us/mobile-ph... is one. I moved from a S3 last December to a G3, it's been a great replacement so far.
The whole ground assault on Hoth in The Empire Strikes Back was to take out the shield generator. Which one of the AT-AT's finally accomplishes.
Droideka's had visible shields.
The double radar domes on top of the Star Destroyers are their shield generators.
It's not static, but they do hand out IPv6 IP's.
This 5-digit thought it was smirk worthy, maybe not outright LOL, but definitely smirk worthy.
We can push over 100Mb/s over 5,000' of copper _today_ using the latest, already shipping DSL technology.
Your other points aside. It still requires that the copper plant is in decent shape, which for many areas out there it is not. Water penetrated, corroded, rotted insulation, undocumented bridge taps, squirrel chewed on, aging, weather beaten, copper line that can barely sustain a 1.5Mb/s connection isn't going to handle a 100Mb/s connection very well.
You just have decent top level priorities. Latin and French? Two dead languages. Why would anybody bother?
I think France, Canada (namely Quebec), and many other countries in Europe, and Africa, might have an alternate viewpoint.
If you were able to pry a game port card from an AT format PC, it would likely be an ISA board, which no newer computer has had in awhile. A lot of computers/motherboards these days don't even come with even a PCI slot, just all PCI-X.
Which doesn't even mention that Windows 7 and up don't support the game port interface anyways.
USB to Game port adapters are your best bet if you have an old game port based controller. Or just buy a new USB based controller.
Recent research has tended to show that the Abominable No-Man is being replaced by the Prohibitive Procrastinator. -- C.N. Parkinson
