You wouldn't be disallowing scripts from "fsdn.com" like I was, hm? That should do the trick.

Game Site Wonders 'What Next?' When 50% of Users Block Ads

mujadaddy Re:Start turning the cogs (978 comments)

Unfortunately, for all the talk of micro-payments, I've never seen a serious attempt at implementing them.

So the problem isn't that commercial websites are greedy, it's that banks, et al, are greedy? Surely there's a simple solution staring everyone in the face that I can't think of right now either.

Also, I'm not discounting the fact that Google is a big part of the Ad Thing's perpetuation. Finding [N] on the internet used to be done differently when you weren't guaranteed money for it...

Game Site Wonders 'What Next?' When 50% of Users Block Ads

mujadaddy Re:I used to block ads (978 comments)

If the threat is that all the commercial enterprises are going to vanish from the internet and we're going to end up back in a time when the internet was for enthusiasts generating and trading information and content among each other without having to monetize absolutely every fucking page load, then by all means -- I'm on board.

This, so fucking hard. Used to be you spent hundreds a month on modem fees to give your BBS content away.

Why BioWare's Star Wars MMO May Already Be Too Late

mujadaddy Re:Star Wars Galaxies anyone? (328 comments)

A group has been working on re creating the orignal SWG (haven't check on the project since last spring), but I would play it again in a heartbeat.

There are actually a few groups trying that.

I'm not affiliated with the devs of SWGEmu, but I have been monitoring their progress as a member for some time now.

They've got a working game, and a lot of passion, but not much free-time to work on it. Check it out if you've still got your old disks!

The Odd Variations On 3G Per-Megabyte Pricing

You're assuming two things:

1. That (300 million Americans) want or need information in their news, and

2. We can't afford to just wait for our international brethren to inform us we talk like fags and our shit is all retarded.

127.0.0.1

Wouldn't that cause a noticeable delay while the response timed out? Wouldn't a legal but "nonsense" IP like 0.0.0.0 work faster?

Fiber to the Home: One Local Utility's Triumph

mujadaddy mujadaddy writes  |  more than 3 years ago

mujadaddy (1238164) writes "In 2004, I was getting my MS in Telecom Engineering in Lafayette, LA, and the municipal power & water utility, "Lafayette Utility System"/LUS was publicizing a proposal to connect every home in the city with fiber. I and a few friends had some concerns, so two of us went down to LUS. We met with Terry Huval, Director of LUS, a very busy man who found the time to answer all our technical questions about the plan — we were blown away with how competent and forethoughtful they had been. The many, inevitable lawsuits on the road ahead were our, and his, only reservation.

Now, it's a reality."
