Submission + - No Cell Phones, Wi-Fi Allowed In Small W.Va. Town (cbslocal.com)

sycodon writes: Would you believe there’s a place where no one can use a cell phone? Where Wi-Fi is not allowed? Where even finding a radio station can be a difficult task?

No, it's not a case of a bunch of loonies allergic to cell towers, radio, TV or WiFi signals.

It's the home to the largest movable radio telescope in the world, the National Radio Observatory, located in the National Radio Quiet Zone.

Yea, it sounds like the GP doesn't actually drive a car.

The difficulty in seeing people moving into the road in low light conditions can be pretty much impossible even when everyone is doing the right thing, throw in someone just wearing dark cloths and you run over them before you know what you saw in your headlights if you've got any speed at all.

It amazes me that teenagers survive at all. As drivers or pedestrians. I have no idea how I did.

Because 'charging a fee' doesn't solve the problem, it just makes them more money.

Its not like they aren't charging monthly for th equipment anyway are they?

The new equipment costs more, the charge ... partially covers the difference doesn't it ...

This isn't about support, no one with that old device needs support otherwise they would have complained enough and gotten suggested a new one long long ago. These people just sit there and the device works.

The argument about IPv6 mentioned else where is bunk as well. They can't provide any acceptable level of service with anything more than NAT to IPv6, which means each user WILL end up behind their own local NAT which has a public IP unique to their equipment for many years to come, so pretending this is a address space issue is bullshit as well.

This is nothing more than a money grab.

While it is unfortunate for the opposition candidate to flaunt the Constitution in such a manner, note that we can also see the establishment candidate, Evita Peron^H^H^H^H^H^H^H^H^H^H^H^H Hillary Clinton, is actually proposing to amend the Constitution in order to reverse a Supreme Court decision which allowed a group of people to advocate against her as a political candidate. She also has designs on her political opponents' second amendment rights.
