$105 a month for 105 down, 10 up with Comcast (actually, I've got a special deal for 12 months for $65 a month, but $105 is the regular price). However, I usually only get 105 speeds during the day or early morning. In prime time, I get more like 5-50.

I am in the Anthem boat with the other 78.8 million.

With SSN stolen, it should be credit protection/repair for life right?, if those who stole it waited 3 years, nobody will have it fresh in mind, although I suspect this won't be the last time my personal info will be stolen.

If you have followed the TurboTax stories, it is perfectly ok to use the same SSN as somebody else multiple times, that won't prevent the filing to IRS.

Only 3 weeks to a month later TurboTax will notify IRS of any potential fraud.

Yeah, I think Anthem owes everyone involved credit monitoring and ID protection for life. 2 years is a joke. Absolutely worthless. Class action lawsuit? Why bother? They'll pay a few hundred million, and each person affected will receive $1, and the lawyers get $200 million. Anthem might as well buy out one of these credit monitoring companies and just offer free protection for every Anthem customer. Also, our government needs to get on the ball and offer PIN numbers for every important account like taxes, social security, etc. Even the IRS recognizes what needs to be done, but says it can't implement proper security because of budgetary constraints, and you have to wait until you are a victim until they will even offer a PIN.

Can someone explain to me how one makes a target out of mental?

First, you have to be a telekinetic, then form a picture of a target in your mind.

These aholes aren't "pranksters". This is akin to yelling "fire" in a crowded movie theater. The chances of someone getting hurt or killed skyrockets in a SWAT situation. What if the swatted person thought someone was breaking into their home and pulled gun on the cops, or a cop's finger slips on the trigger? Not to mention, how many other people's lives are in danger because a bunch of cops are responding to a non-incident while robberies or homicides are occurring on the other side of town? These guys need a good 5-10 years in prison.

My problem with their response is not only do we have to wait weeks before we get more information or snail mail (giving any thieves a giant head-start), but most of their solutions seem to be temporary.

Right now, you can't even really say you were harmed, because there is a chance your information wasn't one of the ones stolen, so they can claim you aren't affected. Most of their solutions seem to be good for 0-1 years. What happens 3, 6, 19 years from now when someone actually decides to start using that data? You think I can go to Anthem and say "remember 20 years ago, you guys lost my data? It cost me 10k to fix my credit, so you guys owe me." Yeah...

For now, I put a 3 month fraud alert on my credit, so if anyone tries to open a new account they will have difficulty. If I get a letter stating my information was stolen, it may be time to seek some legal representation. 1 year of credit protection or repair is a joke.

I picked it up. I hated the tower defense missions of VH1, but I actually liked them a lot in VH2, and was disappointed when those missions ran out.

I've only played a few maps, but this is almost identical to the VH2 TD minigames, except you level up your traps as well as yourself. I hope it is not a short game.

As an Anthem customer, this one has me steamed. People are lumping this in with Target, Home Depot, etc., but those are peanuts in comparison. Sure, more users were compromised, but what did they get? Credit Card numbers? Big whoop, they cancel them almost instantly and you get a new card. This hack was supposedly addresses, socials, birth dates, medical numbers, contact information. Basically everything needed to steal accounts or open up new accounts. I'm sure they'll try and pawn off "one year of free credit monitoring" as some kind of remedy, but once that info is in the wild, it's circulating perpetually. I'm thinking lifetime credit protection.

I'd always thought Xhamster was supposed to be one of the "safer" sites to visit. I've been on a few times recently, but haven't gotten any warnings from Eset or Malwarebytes. Then again, I've got noscript and adblock on, so the only thing that should load is the video and not ads with malware.

This was a very humorous skit. Props to that guy's acting, as he apparently has 90% of people fooled.

"that only a tiny fraction of consumers use their broadband connections in this manner". Yes, we should all be stuck at 3, 5, 10 mbs because the cable companies think these speeds will be sufficient for the next 300 years. Just because not many people are using 4k or HD streaming now doesn't mean the next 2,3,10 years they won't. At my local level, you've got Comcast and that's it. They offer plans that break down to 6mb:$50 a month, 15-50mb:$60-$80 a month, or 105:$105 a month. Currently I've got a deal on the 105, but at night, I'm lucky to hit 30-40 when neighborhood traffic is heavy. 105 is basically only attainable at 6-9 am.

I just finished up the original, "Shadowrun Returns" today. I wasn't too impressed. The story wasn't great, combat was kind of tedious, and the game felt more like a point and click murder mystery adventure with a few fights thrown in than something resembling X-Com. Limited money, limited upgrades, items, gear, etc. I've heard the Dragonfall game is superior, so I might pick that up on the next sale.

If Windows 10 is like $20 a year, sure. If it's like $10-$20 a month, F that noise. As others have said, I'm tired of getting nickle and dimed to death.

Played the crap outta LoX thanks to Horrorscope's mention long ago, great game.

It's a really great game. I enjoyed it more than Might and Magic X, and I thought MMX was a fine game. The only thing stopping me from an immediate 2nd play through is the desire for more classes.

Shit, Witcher 2 runs awesome on my machine (i7-980x @ 4.6ghz, 3gb MSI GTX580, 2304x1440) with all settings maxed except for Ubersampling. I'm just waiting on the fucking 980ti before I upgrade my card, but it's looking like that's gonna be forever now.

I've got an i5 @ 3.7 and a 970 and finished up Witcher 2 the other day. I could run ubersampling and get about 30-45 FPS usually, but I turned it off to get a flat 60 fps, but a few zones/areas could still drop FPS down to about 45-50 (everything on ultra/high/whatever).

I reinstalled Wizardry 8 the other day. I recall being absolutely blown away by the game when it came out. It's pretty dated now, but still an incredible RPG. Instead of yet another MMO, they should have just made Wizardy 9.

Picked up a Galtab 4 7" for $130 a couple weeks ago. It's a present for someone, so I haven't played with it, but my own tablet, a Galtab 2 10.1 is still going strong 2.5 years later. I don't see a need for another one unless one of these dies.

Yeah, I've got a small and large Kindle. Just don't need another tablet. It's not like a tablet from 2015 is 3x faster than one from 2013 or anything.

Mine's be a solid 125 Mb down since the speed doubling. Are you testing your speed from speedtest.comcast.net?

I usually check from the Comcast tester and http://testmy.net/, and usually get similar results. About half speed at night, full speed during the day (like if I take a day off). Think my neighborhood just has a lot of congestion since Comcast is the only game in town for internet.

I've got 105 down with Comcast now (which normally runs about $105 a month), and most nights I'm lucky to get 25-50 down in actuality. Now, if I want to get on at 6am, I've got 105-110.
