Comcast Confessions

cyfer2000 Re:I must be the outlier (234 comments)

I am planning to cancel my comcast, because they claim that they own the modem I bought from bestbuy and trying to charge me a monthly rental, twice. The first time, the costumer service told me if "the system" showed they owned my modem, the modem was their property. Then I called again, a different guy told me that I could fax in my receipt and other stuff to show them that I purchased the modem. Then I faxed my receipt and etc. And after 3 years, the monthly rental showed up again. The customer service told me they could not fix this issue over the phone and asked me to go to a local office...

Chinese Moon Rover Says an Early Goodnight

cyfer2000 Re:Brief translation from Chinese (284 comments)

There is a Chang'e 4 mission as a back up of this mission. The Chang'e 4 was originally planned for 2015, but it is possible they may make it happen this year if the Chang'e 3 fails.

I heard from unconfirmed source that the problem was mechanical. The solar panels of the "Jade Rabbit" can fold and can act as covers to prevent heat from escaping. One of the solar panels failed to fold.

China: The Next Space Superpower

cyfer2000 Re:another GPS? (250 comments)

I hope you realized the main purpose of Global Position System was sadly military related. These 7 entities are those who need/want to have their own GPS system for the military advantage.

Satanists Propose Monument At Oklahoma State Capitol Next To Ten Commandments

cyfer2000 Re:Offensive (1251 comments)

4 "Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy. Six days you shall labor and do all your work, but the seventh day is the Sabbath of the Lord your God. In it you shall do no work: you, nor your son, nor your daughter, nor your male servant, nor your female servant, nor your cattle, nor your stranger who is within your gates. For in six days the Lord made the heavens and the earth, the sea, and all that is in them, and rested the seventh day. Therefore the Lord blessed the Sabbath day and hallowed it."

I like it very much, but it offended my last boss somehow.
