I've been following that project for at least five years. I think they've done a damn good job of stopping themselves, TYVM.

TiVo Announces DVR-SuperAdvance

bryce1012 Re:TiVo is losing (75 comments)

(2) can get stuff off the net/Netflix too [I haven't personally used that]

This one feature is well worth the price of admission... more selections would be nice, but they're improving that quite nicely.

Comcast To Cap Data Transfers At 250 GB In October

bryce1012 Re:Better than Videotron (939 comments)

Seriously though, you honestly can't expect more than 250 GB per month for residential service. Those of you arguing about Blu-ray transfers and GB of backup data, shut up. Get a goddamn commercial line if you're not an average consumer.

Are you saying watching HD movies and backing up pictures/home video to Carbonite or something aren't residential activities?

Complaining over a 250 GB cap is like complaining that you can't run a 20,000 machine data centre at home off the city's public electricity grid.

No it's not. It's like complaining that my connection to the power grid can't support eight computers in my home, because the "average user" doesn't have eight computers. Who's to say, though, that I don't have a high-power desktop for gaming (1), a laptop for surfing, etc (2), a laptop for the wife (3), one laptop each for the kids (4, 5), one MythTV box each for the upstairs TV and the downstairs TV (6, 7), and a media server (running Windows HOME Server, not something Enterprisey) (8)?

Sure, this is a hypothetical example, but it's not at all unreasonable. The fact that I'm not "average" doesn't mean I should need a commercial-grade connection.

It's Funny. Laugh.

bryce1012 bryce1012 writes  |  more than 8 years ago So I was meta-moderated yesterday morning, it seems. Apparently somebody didn't like my "funny" mod on this comment, and they decided to mark it unfair.

Tell me, what's not funny about that? OK, it's *maybe* a teensy bit trollish at the beginning, but when you get to the bit about his name being Fred, it becomes obvious that it's tongue-in-cheek. And that last line? Oh, very nice.

Some people need to grow a sense of humor.
