Thanks. Assuming that article is credible, it seems likely the pornography charges are crap. It would help his case significantly if these supposed files could be at least verified as existing. If he did mail thumb drives to someone with those files.. seems to me like he needs to get those out or verified or something. Because right now all he has is a story...

So what is the supposed premise here? That one of his whistler blower buddies put the files on the server and the FBI found out some how? Or the FBI put them on there to frame him?

Don't get me wrong, I think the US government is fully capable of framing him for one reason or another -- but the story provided in the short article seems to raise more questions than anything else.

Dr. Internet is..? A rep. from your ISP?

So what was the issue? Was it something physical with the coax? Or was it some kind of software/routing/compatibility issue? Inquiring minds want to know...

Edit: Doh! You already answered:

It was a combination of a couple of bad cable connections in my house causing packet loss along with a repeater on my node that was over-amplifying (or whatever is the equivalent) the signal.

Thanks, and everybody do yourself a favor and see the movie. As far as I'm concerned this was the summer's best.
I find that difficult to believe -- I've yet to see anything that makes me think it's anything other than a bad remake.

I ran track in high school, so I've known about the mystery holes on sneakers for quite some time. Thumbsup I recently passed the knowledge on to some people at the pizza shop who kept getting blisters. It's one of those things that you think everyone knows, but it's really a secret to everyone.

man i dunno... i feel like that video opened my eyes to A Whole New Woooooorld for some reason. i've been an athlete my whole life and pretty much every running shoe i've ever owned had those extra holes and i never knew why... until now. makes me wonder what else in life i've been ignorant about. if the comments to the video are any indication, i'm not the only one that feels this way.

Yeah, I feel the same way. I did three years of HS track and never learned this. Fortunately for me I've never had issues with heel blisters, so I wasn't missing out.

But I really agree with the "what else don't I know" sentiment. I mean in something like computers, sure -- there is always something else to know, you can't know it all. But in how to tie your shoes?

I know the Webb telescope is going up soon, but why is it taking so long? Hurry up already!
I think I'd rather they take their time and get it right -- it's not like they'll be able to send the shuttle up to fix it like they did with Hubble.

I agree it seems likely he has a safety harness on. As you said, he probably had to lower himself on a line just to get there. Although, I have to say, it isn't obvious. You can't see any part of a harness. Granted, it a limited view, but if he was wearing a standard climbing harness over his clothes, we see enough that we should see it. So either he purposely hid the harness, it's not a standard harness, or -- very unlikely, he is not wearing one.

When you consider the two water supply tunnels for New York City are big enough to drive a truck through -- yeah, a 4 ft diameter water pipe for California isn't even close to enough.

$120 million? What is that, like 3 tanks?

Wow, only $8.28 M per according to Wiki -- so 14 tanks.

Getting laid off is awful.
Usually, yeah. But I've been hoping for a couple of years that my company would lay me off. Not worth quitting since I have 20 years of raises built up -- so, I sit back take it easy and keep waiting for them to finally pull the trigger... and give me my now 40 weeks of severance...

I didn't think the formation of the Grand Canyon was as settled as that video seems to indicate. But I might just be remembering wrong.

What are the "statistics" on police killed in the US vs police killed in the UK?

And remember what Twain said about statistics...

Divorce was never an explicit reason for me to not get married, but it certainly is a nice side benefit.

Good luck in yours.

I'm not entirely sure you are serious, or trolling or what. The partisan response would be to say,

"If there's a policy guaranteed to take the country backward, you can be sure the Republicans are out front leading they way back -- I often think they'd prefer we all went back to living in company towns with company stores, and lived 'by the leave' of our corporate overlords."

Of course the truth is neither of those. I am equally skeptical of both sides. I see plenty of abuse by both government and corporations and way too much where the two get together to cause REAL problems.
