I have to laugh at the municipal fiber being useless because its wholesale only.

Also shades of the comment thread from yesterday:

PUD officials had no comment on whether they intend to file such a petition or if they’d publicly support one. After all, running a retail-level broadband service may be too expensive an undertaking for a county with only around 250,000 residents.

This is why muni broadband direct to consumer usually only ends up in heavily subsidized environments.

Nonsense, I remember a small farm riddled village in the UK whose residents passed gigabit FTTH without any subsidies, only resident financing who had enough of the dialup crap. And they pay, if I remember right, a ridiculously low price and still the cooperative they started STILL MAKES PROFIT off of it.

THERE IS NO REASON WHATSOEVER in this day and age not to have fiber to the home for everyone. NONE AT ALL.

He's a fool to think he will be treated as a whistleblower instead of backstabber.

Imho, tagging him is irrelevant, what's important is the message, not the messenger.

Been using both since I was a kid. I use F for indoor temperature, body temperature and cooking wherehas I use C for outdoor temperature and science related stuff ( easy conversion to kelvin ).

And I tend to agree on the habit theory.

Wow, The TR SSD experiment has been one of my favorite read for the last 2 years! I'm kinda sad there won't be another one.

Same... but they could fix this easily enough by testing the latest generation of SSDs...

No removable battery or SD card slot makes the S6 a no go for me. The Note 4 is still the best phone on the market.

+1, the only reason I stuck with Samsung was these 2 features and the great aftermarket expanded battery support.

Oh well... If they like to shoot themselves in the foot trying to steal Apple's marketshare, let'em try.

"Using a SSD? This news will make you want to backup right now"

Testing doesn't support this theory...

Google "techreport ssd endurance test two petabytes"

What a classy guy. I always enjoyed seeing him in anything, whether it was Invasion of the Body Snatchers, The Simpsons, Star Trek of course, etc.

We watched Marge vs the Monorail last night in tribute. I saw someone post it earlier, but it is a truly fitting quote: "And the cosmic ballet goes on."

Don't forget as Mustapha Mond in Brave New World too...

Maybe, but dolphins don't have automatic rifles and nuclear weapons.

You're totally proving my point there! XD

Gene that makes human brain unique identified by scientists

"Scientists in Dresden found a gene that drives the expansion of the human brain and helps to make it the most complex structure in the universe."

Hmmmm... no. Dolphins have the most complex structure in the, CORRECTION: KNOWN universe.

Rome 2 is running around 30fps in 1080p most things on high or medium. Men of War 2 is another one that is struggling on my pc, and of course Star Citizen too but that is still in alpha so I am not too worried about it as of yet.
There are other games like Wreckfest for example I have to juggle with the settings to make it run smooth, Crysis is another game that doesn't want to run well for me, but you are right most games are just fine.
I'll be curious to see how GTA5, Witcher, and most newer games will run on my pc.
The next gen consoles may be weak hardware wise but it'll all comes down to how well the games are optimized for the pc when the devs ported them.

Fair enough about the port quality being mostly subpar most of the time. Agreed.

I don't get why people are still upgrading their PCs here... I'm running a 5 year old i5-750 quadcore + hd5850 and I'm still running everything maxed out at 1080p, including TW rome 2 ( and its very playable, especially after a year of patches ). So unless you're running more than 1080p, the GPU is fine, but the CPU? Not when the utilization charts are still below saturation for each core.

And with the utterly weak "7th gen" consoles at half best GPU PC strength on release compared to last gen 2-3 times faster than best PC GPU at release. I don't see myself upgrading my PC until the 8th gen consoles are released or if I go 4k res or 1080p 3d until then.

It has never been cheaper to game on the PC, 1 investment and you're covered for 10 years hardware failures notwithstanding.

Incredibly well said....

Saw that comment on that site earlier and had the exact same thought you did. Unfortunately I also saw today that the "anti-terrorism" legislation is polling through the goddamned roof, with a good chunk of the populace wanting it to go even farther. No wonder the Cons have dropped the economy message and went full patriot act, people are eating it up. The useless Liberals are backing it and the rest of the opposition parties are going to take a major public beating for being against it. I can't help but shake my head.

Canadian here... This goes way beyond shaking your head, its totally epic facepalm "fuck this shit, I'm moving to Narnia" stuff.

All that over two fucking false flag ops that killed less people than lightning strikes or bath accidents.

10 people die of a fall in the bathroom throughout the year, no big deal. 2 people die of false flag ops, everyone loses their fucking mind. *insert Joker meme here*

*insert "please take my rights and sooth me" meme here*

"The Star Trek vs. Star Wars trailer is all your nerd fantasies given form"

Err... no... There are TEN films, get it?

And, well... let's not dwell on the old tech VS new tech stuff, but needless to say, Star Wars would get his ass kicked so bad it would come crying back to the emperor's tomb in no time flat.
