danknight Re:SMS (96 comments)

AFIK SMS was a testing mode, rides along the signal path anyway, essentially free to implement, Yet they monitized the crap out of it.

Suggestions For a Coax-To-Ethernet Solution?

danknight Motorola NIM100 coax bridge (608 comments)

Made by motorola, they are coax to ethernet bridges, 400mbs on the coax side 100mbs on the ethernet side. the default on the coax side is the 169.x.x.x addresses and bridge the ethernet. I use 2 in my house for areas that don't yet have ethernet, and they get the eth address from my dhcp server probably cost prohibitive unless you can get a deal on them somewhere

BBC Lowers HDTV Bitrate; Users Notice

danknight Re:Focus group... (412 comments)

Mostly because Verizon does not compress, The feeds from the sat farms are exactly what goes to your home, and it's fiber all the way (well, except for the electronics in the distribution equipment :P ), Comcast currently has a last mile bandwith problem ~200-500 homes on the distribution fiber to the nodes and lots of amplifiers/splitters on the last mile coax where verizon runs 32 homes on the last mile fiber 1>32 optical splitter in the field passive network (no electronics in the field) with enough dark fiber in the f1 runs to drop to a 1>16 split if necessary without running more fiber in the field..

Home Router For High-Speed Connection?

danknight Ip COP? (376 comments)

I have 25/25 FiOS with the actiontec router. The Actiontec would often lock up after heavy BitTorrent sessions. (something about memory leaks in the routing tables i heard) Anyway I had the internet connetion switched from Moca (cable output) to ethernet and I run it through an old pentium 200 with 3 nics running ipcop 1.4.21 a 24 port switch and hung the router on after for wireless and Moca for the stbs. It has yet to crash, been up for over 2 years and I get full bandwith on nat on the clients . and over 10/10 on the wireless.

Surgeon Performs World's First 4X HD Surgery

danknight Re:4x HD for $1m (101 comments)

Say what you will about Hollywood,But other than the Military or NASA (I wonder what resolution they're running at ?) They apparently drive the market for this stuff. And they're an Entertainment organization! That has GOT to be a damn good argument against Government run health care.

I don't care if you're left or right health care 'reform' was one of Obama's main election platforms so I think ObamaCare is a fitting term.

Amazon Offers To Return Pulled Orwell Ebooks

danknight Re:damage (256 comments)

This is Exactly the problem. I'm sort of interested in a kindle type product, now when i read a book, i either buy it or borrow it from the library. When I buy the book I have it forever (in theory). Also it looks good on the shelf, I can lend it give it sell it etc. no power required to read it either! But I'm pretty damn sure that the bookstore can't take it back or lock it out from my current or future use.. I think the fact that this happened so soon, and the sheer irony & stupidity of the work being 1984 is huge. and for now has killed any interest i have for now (even the open source one) I'm sure ill have such a device someday but i won't be an early adopter and when I finally go get one the Amazon product will be on the bottom of the list.

Um,,Just in case you are uninformed, Spanking is no longer politically correct. This is 21st century liberal America, in this country we either DRUG our children or negotiate with them. Please get with the program. PS, the DSS Situation response team is on the way to your home to repossess your kids. Have a nice day :)
