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

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.

"Suddenly Frodo noticed that a strange-looking weather-beaten man, sitting in the shadows near the wall, was also listening intently to the hobbit-talk. He had a tall tankard in front of him, and was smoking a long-stemmed pipe curiously carved. His legs were stretched out before him, showing high boots of supple leather that fitted him well, but had seen much wear and were now caked with mud. A travel-stained cloak of heavy dark-green cloth was drawn close about him, and in spite of the heat of the room he wore a hood that overshadowed his face; but the gleam of his eyes could be seen as he watched the hobbits."

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

I am really enjoying Irredeemable/Incorruptible.

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.
