I tried the Zen mode with all those extra options enabled minus ambient sounds, in headphone mode. Before I knew it the hour trial was up; felt like I had been on some crazy high or something.

Yes I'm sure they have worked with brain physiology and behavioral experts experts on how to maximize this effect. Really..

1. WikiLeaks Supporters With DDOS Attack. Dec 8, 2010, 13:59 LittleMe
 
I'm learning the the wikileaks issue is bogus, an intentional release of information. It's an Internet 9/11 designed to justify the Feds expanding their tyrannical war to the Internet. Read Cass Sundstien's 2008 paper on how they intend to silence (internet) opposition. There's apparently nothing very controversial about the information that wasn't already in the news media.

Good. Now go to your city/county government, with whom Comcast has partnered, and make that sentiment known and organize with others who feel as you.

They'll keep doing it as long as you allow it. They want monitor everything you do. You are always under suspicion as a terrorist. Don't step out of line. Don't speak the truth. Don't question authority. Shut up, play your games, watch your movies, watch TV and pay your debts and taxes. Go out and shop.

The SSN system is extremely antiquated and a terrible identification system. But like most government systems, it's nearly impossible to eliminate.

3. Re: Understanding the Level 3/Comcast spat (FAQ). Dec 1, 2010, 22:57 LittleMe
 
Reading some of the well written comments in the thread below the FAQ, I can see how it can be considered a NN issue. I see both sides of the argument. L3 is certainly playing a game that Akamai could not.

Do I think NN will solve the issue? No. It could make it even worse. For example, if L3 is allowed to dump a 5:1 ratio of traffic onto Comcast's network what are the consequences? Maybe metered bandwidth usage for their customers. That might not be a bad thing, or maybe it would be.

The issue is very difficult to resolve. I can think of many different ways it could play out. But that's what markets are supposed to do, not the government. Sure, Comcast is in a position to exploit the consumer AND the content providers. That's the real problem here. The duopoly is the problem, not the semantics of how they peer with Internet backbone providers and content providers. That's why I've said all along that NN won't work and the only real solution is to open up the market and allow competition and consumer choice.

1. Global pool of IPv4 addresses set to run dry in weeks. Dec 1, 2010, 22:28 LittleMe
 
The concern is blown way out of proportion. If people can buy and sell ip blocks (and they do) then prices will need to go up for a while until IPv6 is farther along. Markets deal with and solve problems like this all the time.

1. Understanding the Level 3/Comcast spat (FAQ). Dec 1, 2010, 22:05 LittleMe
 
And there it is. It's a peering dispute. It's not even related to Net Neutrality. L3 is just crying to the government mommy so it can suck the government tit (by getting peering deals that favor their bottom line).

Learn the difference between a corporate dispute and a genuine concern! Well, there is no real genuine concern and this is one of the better examples that can be cited? The sky is falling! The sky is falling!! Net Neutrality is going to save us all (and Level3's expenses)!! PANIC IN THE STREETS! ZOMG!

Thanks Blue/Flying Penguin.

Comcast is a (GOVERNMENT) licensed monopoly in many markets.

....

This is called competition and free market, something that you claim to support.

See the double-think here in your logic? I do. Nevertheless I think I see what you are trying to say about Level3.

You are saying that we need to regulate the entire national Internet, every router that has public data transiting it, here in the country because the government has fucked up the market by creating a duopoly and destroyed consumer choice. The example you cite is that Level3 routes Netflix traffic to Comcast too much through their new peering instead of an old route.

It looks to me like you want to play nanny-state with Internet providers who don't route traffic according to your holier than thou principles and you want to hand lots of authority over to the Federal Government, who continue to illegally spy on our communications, to handle it, as if they can do all that much. You'd much rather Comcast continue to have a monopoly than to end their government granted stranglehold on the market.

That's how it looks to me.

Well said. Here in the US, apparently they do answer to the laws of the land. This is a recent development. If they knock on your door, treat it as a life threatening situation.

That last comment refers to the brouhaha over Comcast's demand for cash to deliver cached Netflix traffic to its subscribers,

That's absolutely terrible that Comcast wants to charge for a value added service! You bastards! Call in the Feds, hurry!! The sky is falling down!

Surprise, surprise. DICE being their usual mediocre selves again.

You are upset because they are going to charge for the Vietnam expansion? Not sure...

The primary purpose of giving the TSA so much authority was NOT to make us safer anyway. It's to condition us to get used to this sort of treatment in a more tyrannical society. The fact that they are doing a really shitty job is a very good thing because people *are* getting upset and fed up with it. I can't see how it could have gone much better.

Maybe some people will start to question *why* we really need a worldwide empire and is it worth all the costs to our liberties and the one trillion dollar annual budget. Follow the money.
