Jaysyn Re:What rhymes with "douchebag"? (308 comments)

I'm all for Title II, but I don't see why Google would be any happier than AT&T about it.

It's both sad & hilarious that that's what you took away from the previous comment. Talk about mental gymnastics.

Called it.

These assholes are so predictable. If Obama cured cancer they'd accuse him of killing medical jobs.

Unfortunately, now that Obama has come out in support of NN, the R's in the House & Senate will fight it tooth & nail.

Boo! The House Majority PAC Is Watching You

Jaysyn Re:West Virginia too (468 comments)

A co-worker of mine is a resident alien (not a citizen, although she was married to one & could easily take the citizenship test if she wanted to), she also gets to vote for local elections here in FL.

OEM Windows 7 License Sales End This Friday

Jaysyn Re:Stop developing 64bit (242 comments)

There is no earthly benefit to running Windows as 64bit

How about 16Gb+ RAM in ArcGIS or AutoCAD? You quite literally don't know what the fuck you are blabbering about.

Groundwork Laid For Superfast Broadband Over Copper

Jaysyn Re:Cox (93 comments)

Oddly enough I wasn't given an actual name for the process & this (Arizona) is apparently the 1st system in the US to try this out on a large scale basis.

It's for both, the distribution to the cabinets will be fiber as well, but not necessarily using existing coax.

Groundwork Laid For Superfast Broadband Over Copper

Jaysyn Re:That's good, but... (93 comments)

You need to call your local Public Utility Commission & complain. It's the only thing that can force a regional monopoly to get off of their ass & do something.

Groundwork Laid For Superfast Broadband Over Copper

Jaysyn Cox (93 comments)

I'm currently working on a project for Cox Communications in which they are chemically dissolving the foam inside of the coaxial cable conduit & then air blowing fiber through the newly created space inside the conduit. Pretty cool stuff. This avoids the costs associated with permitting, digging new trench & burying separate fiber conduit & they can use the DWDM hardware they already have on hand instead of buying new systems like this.

Personally I love my Buffalo routers running DD-WRT. I'm pretty sure you can run Tomato on them too, but I thought it wasn't maintained anymore.

Converting Joe SixPack

Jaysyn Jaysyn writes  |  more than 11 years ago

I just converted another friend (and his g/f) of mine from IE + Outlook to Firebird & Thunderbird. Usually they're hooked right about the time you show them the tabbed browsing. You just have to remember to install Flash for them while you're setting it up. That brings my total up to 7 people I've switched away from IE and/or Outlook. I think my Office is going to Thunderbird from Outlook soon, we don't uses Exchange so their really isn't a reason to use the MS virus propagation platform.
