Yeah, don't have an optic fiber connection and for some reason the companies don't plan to install it any time soon.

at least even when being 60% slower you're faster than me

I do have a decent connection.

Best non-Canadian connection posted so far, it seems.

That super fast Kansas City connection is due to this project:

NOT FAIR.

Besides, while this might be an awesome new speed for private home-owners, objectively speaking it's garbage.

It's about the equivalent of an industrial OC-18c.

An OC-768c gives you 9953.28 Mb/s, which is still 10 times more than that new Google Fiber connection. And that one has been around since 2006. So I can't really say that 900 Mb/s is a breakthrough.

I think it's supposed to be more of a market than a capability breakthrough. Economics and such. Remember that Moore's law isn't actually about the highest number of transistors that lab dudes can put on a chip, it's about the number of transistors per chip at the best economy.

Anyway:

I can get a D- from the server in Madison, though the ping is usually slower. Wisconsin isn't as big on infrastructure and telecom regulation as it used to be.

Quit my bitchin'? About 10 years ago I had to threaten to sue just to get a 4 MB connection, I'm allowed to bitch after that!

And for everyone with a small connection, try using this. Always helped me.

Looking at Val's post, I have developed a hypothesis that the internet connection speed is inversely proportional to the frequency of being right about something.

If I win the SNAFU elections I shall include resources for further research on this subject in the new budget.

Oh man, Erik Karlsson is done for the season that probably just screwed every fantasy league.

Re: And the good lord sayeth: Come forth The Talk Thread XVIII!

Thu Feb 14, 2013 10:29 pm

Yup, saw it pretty much right when it happened. Fucking matt cooke. Yes, screwed my fantasy team. No defenceman reserve

Re: And the good lord sayeth: Come forth The Talk Thread XVIII!

That sucks, I honestly think no one would have cared if it hadn't been Karlsson and Cookie.

I am really enjoying Irredeemable/Incorruptible.

Re: And the good lord sayeth: Come forth The Talk Thread XVIII!

Thu Feb 14, 2013 11:42 pm

I never finished that series

Re: And the good lord sayeth: Come forth The Talk Thread XVIII!

Thu Feb 14, 2013 11:46 pm

I read Irredeemable up until it crosses over with Incorruptible, and now I'm reading Incorruptible to not be lost in that cross over.

Yeah I liked Irredeemable/Incorruptible, Waid got pretty twisted in it.

Irredeemable gets a bit weaker towards the end, I thought. ENDING SPOILERZ    And the ending is a bit Morrisonesque, our world influenced by the "fictional"world,    guess that's why Morrison liked it so and wrote the foreword.
