He's supposed to be from Bristol, after all.
Ummm to do any kind of broadcasting in the FM bands you need a license from the FCC.... You can RECEIVE all the FM bands you want without a license but transmit - you need a license....
FM is a modulation mode, not a band. There is plenty of spectrum where you can transmit an FM from an FM station without a license.
who's going around with an FM radio tuned to nothing in the vague hope that something will eventually come thru?
Hams. Apparently, the entire market for this is Ham radio operators.

Netflix is getting hammered with PR and backroom dealings by the media companies that don't really want it to succeed. If they raise prices or simply don't negotiate to allow Netflix to even have their shows, they reduce Netflix influence. Luckily, Netflix has started creating their own shows and they are ALL killing everyone else as far as quality. Stranger Things, Luke Cage, Daredevil, House of Cards, Orange is the New Black, they are actually making content that is worth watching. Everyone else is trying to set up their own streaming service, but in the end, none of those services will survive past life support against superior capabilities by players like Netflix and Amazon.
Your issue with Netflix sounds like an ISP issue or a device issue, not a Netflix issue.
Samsung has not responded well to this problem
They recalled ALL Note 7 devices. Are you intentionally feigning ignorance? (hint: yes, you are)
Thanks for this!
Who were the other early ISPs in the UK? I remember UUNET, Zynet, Demon -- something called The Free Net, too?
Pronounced "Yawl ziz"
I wish I was kidding.
In the early days, there was a lot fewer options for discussing things online. Kuro5hin started pretty close to the same time as
Kuro5hin helped slashdot become what it was, and was a stepping stone towards the internet having its own culture -- slashdot helped reddit, digg exist by means of example, and if you listen closely enough on 4chan and its many offspring subcultures, you can hear the echo of what kuro5hin started: a place that trolls could hone their art(first kuro5hin, then husi/slashdot/gnaa, and somehow from those groups to 4chan and elsewhere where they live today) There's quite a few of us, who joined the internet 2 decades or so ago, who met like minded people in wide discussion threads, like this one, for the first time, and learned from eachother in a way that was, until then, impossible.
I was just a stupid young undergrad, and I had personal differences with one of the guys who started it. But it stood as a monument of what the internet could be: a way to actually make something of a community of the millions who were coming to be online every year. It didn't end up scaling: Long before it hit even 2 million users, people started to lose interest, and the shitpost:post ratio went up. There was some magnificent trolling to come out after things started going downhill, but serious discussion went elsewhere.
there was eventually text-based advertising which was brought in, which was, in and of itself, novel (most advertising of the time was flashy, graphics-based and increasingly hard on system resources). Its minimalistic, targeted ads were much closer to what google had, than what was common for the time -- it sustained itself for awhile that way, though hard to say how well that worked.
Quiet, peasant, and serve me that last 3oz strip of steak immediately.
