Out of the Blue

It seems I have helped the Earth complete another successful orbit of the sun and arrived at yet another birthday. I can only assume that the Earth has increased in speed, as it seems like it was only yesterday that we completed the last such voyage. Now where are my orthopedic shoes? It's almost time for the early bird special!

It's a compassion test.
It's a decency test.
It's a social responsibility test.

Bandwidth upgrade to up-to 1 Gbps. Current speeds. How long it takes to download 19.2GB.
Yep. Standard problem. Amusingly the fastest speeds I've seen are from overseas. I downloaded a large update for E:D (from the UK to the US) and hit my cap of 300 mbps.

Holy schmoly! Rechecked speed. Dance

Well, a lot of people have gone to bed already.

But I have fiber. They all snake off a central hub, but each house has its own dedicated line that goes directly to the Internet backbone.

1,000km Cable to the Stars - The Skyhook.

Interesting, this was my suggesting during our space elevator conversation a couple of months ago in OotB. I didn't have the rotating bit, just a tether that came down to about 100 miles above the earth.

So what you're saying is that you've set up 10TB external HDs on weekly delivery from Amazon to store your burgeoning pr0n collection?

It seems like a good time for a drink and cold calculated speech with sinister overtones.

Amazon marketplace can setup weekly Ensure deliveries.

You jest but I can say that is a literal life saver. When our foster daughter was dying of pancreatic cancer, it got to the point that Ensure was the only thing she could intake.

We had cases of it left over and the apple juice based one with protein is by far the best. The shake-esque ones are just godawful thick and chalky.
