One of the all time WORST network chip makers in the world. I wish they would just go away all together.

How about the crappy motherboard NICs and crappy drivers that go with it?

They update their drivers almost on a daily basis.

They cause more PC and server networking nightmares than I can count.

Server acting up? Step 1 is ALWAYS update the shitty Broadcom drivers. But even that doesn't always work.

Sorry but you misunderstand me - my bad

Humor is probably the only weapon we have at this point and I understand that.

I've seen two people I love die this way and its probably the worst possible way to go. The brain is the last thing to go and its aware as the body dies around it. It's horrifying to see. With cancer at least the victim can put up a fight until the end - with this there is no fight.

God bless you and your Uncle.

Fall On Me
Song by R.E.M.

There's a problem, feathers, iron
Bargain buildings, weights and pulleys
Feathers hit the ground
Before the weight can leave the air

Buy the sky and sell the sky
And tell the sky, and tell the sky
Fall on me (what is it up in the air for)
Fall on me (if it's there for long)
Fall on me (it's over, it's over me)

There's the progress
We have found a way to talk around the problem
Building towers
Foresight isn't anything at all

Buy the sky and sell the sky
And bleed the sky and tell the sky
Fall on me (what is it up in the air for)
Fall on me (if it's there for long)
Fall on me (it's over, it's over me)
Fall on me
(Well I would keep it above but then it wouldn't be sky any more)
(So if I send it to you you've got to promise to keep it home)

... but I admit its all nostalgia

I cant think of how many times I thought "I will just go to Radio Shack and get that cable/adapter/thingy I need"

Now I just use Amazon prime like everyone else or a dozen others. Their prices always sucked because they knew they were the only choice you had.

It used to be the coolest store at the mall. Realistic audio gear, CB radios and all things cool and very geeky.

I'll miss you Radio Shack. It was a good run. You just couldn't stay relavent long enough. R. I. P.
