Rob "CmdrTaco" Malda Resigns From Slashdot

scottm Best of luck Rob (1521 comments)

Slashdot will always be your site in my eyes, and in many ways it's shaped my career. While I can't say I've visited nearly as often in the past few years, when I do I always get nostalgic as soon as the green and white appears.

Thank you for creating and maintaining a the best place for intelligent geek discussion for so many years.

Best of luck!

Cablevision To Offer 101 Mbps Down, No Caps

scottm Re:Starting to pack my things... (375 comments)

I'm in Hoboken which is densely populated. I had the lowest end cablevision package (part of a stupid "triple play" bundle). When the pricing expired on the triple play I canceled all 3 and opened a business line in order to get an SLA and a static IP address (and in order to ditch cable tv).

Without exception both services have been my most pleasant broadband experience. Just now (8pm locally) I got 12.08mbps down, 2.0mbps up. I can't recall the last outage I had.

The History of Slashdot Part 4 - Yesterday, Today, Tomorrow

scottm Ditto - thanks (277 comments)

Thanks Rob & the entire slashdot crew. I've been around, mostly lurking, since long before user accounts. Professionally, I've "grown up" with slashdot, and it's shaped a lot of my career, solved a lot of problems, and of course provided a dependable distraction. Other sites have come and gone (and as you allude to, some probably have staying power and many probably have features worth "stealing from"), but at the end of the day I'll keep refreshing /.
