MS Reportedly Adds 6 Months of Vista Downgrade

The Republicans now have a torture advocate and a creationist Nazi-sympathizing theocrat on their ticket for November.

I realize this is off topic, but am curious - do you actually believe that? McCain is on record as opposing torture every time it has ever come up as an issue. And he seems like the least religion oriented Republican to run for President in a long time.

Shutting down user's hogging bandwidth

thebonafortuna thebonafortuna writes  |  more than 7 years ago

thebonafortuna writes "Not really new news, but another article describing steps taken by Comcast to shut down users 'hogging' bandwidth through downloading/uploading.

To trigger a disconnection warning, customers would be downloading the equivalent of 1,000 songs or four full-length movies every day. Comcast spokesman Charlie Douglas declined to reveal specific bandwidth limits.

What remains so interesting about this is that Comcast still has not provided users with a means to monitor such activity (an issue if your children leaving a computer downloading without your knowledge). As a current Comcast customer plagued by dramatic decreases in connection speeds in the last year or so, this policy doesn't necessarily bother me...but considering the cost of Comcast, is the account holder entitled to a tool which allows them to monitor their household data transmission?"
