Aussie Network Engineers Form Members-Only ISP

KuRa_Scvls Delusions about network costs (66 comments)

Some slashdotters here are suggesting that bandwidth limits are meaningless and that all internet connections should be unlimited.

Problems.

The ISP themselves are paying by the terabytes.
The ISPs that provide uncapped services are marketed for the masses, meaning that the low-usage majority subsidise the bandwidth-hogging minority.
Certain ISPs that provide unlimited plans that we have upheld to be the shining proof of bandwidth limits being meaningless, are slowly starting to switch to caps.

The fact is that our average data usage has gone up, while no groundbreaking innovation has crept up in the sub-marine cables that connect us all.
When the usage goes up but the cost stays the same, you MUST change your business strategy.

His use of God is different to your interpretation.

In this context, God can be interpreted as anthropomorphised nature.

Just like how everyone says "shit", but not always mean fecal matter

Maybe it wasn't your opinion that evolution is not in opposition to God/creator

but your broad accusations about the "intellectuals" that revoked your E-karma

Credit Suisse Traders Manipulated IT Systems To Hide $500m Losses

KuRa_Scvls Australian banks (141 comments)

Australian banks used to not register in the top WHATEVER of the world before the collapse.

But thanks to heavy regulation, the Aussie banks steered away from bad debts, and therefore were relatively immune from the collapse.

Where are they now?

The top 4 now rank within the TOP 12 in the WORLD.

Now some might say "Just think of what they would have been able to do with even LESS regulations!"

To which I say, go fuck yourself.

China Cuts 'Excessive Entertainment' From TV

KuRa_Scvls Re:Yes, concerning, free speech, etc (336 comments)

You want the whole genre to disappear or censored because of bad examples?

Think of it like this.

You might have grown tired of SNL and other sketch shows over the years, but The Daily Show and The Colbert Report are in the same genre, Variety.

China Cuts 'Excessive Entertainment' From TV

KuRa_Scvls That's true (336 comments)

They are finding it from foreign sources.

Especially from its immediate neighbours such as Taiwan, Japan, and South Korea.

Taiwan much more so as they speak the same language as mainland, yet are progressive and mirror the mindset of the first world countries, or the west.
