I live in Austin. I can't wait for Google Fiber. I tested it a bit in Kansas and it seems like a solid product, very good for streaming movies, and the TV service is pretty good too.
As for the rest of this thread:
quote: From what I learned from this thread
Wow, there are some fricking lunatics in here.
Texas is a Southern state. Austin is the capital of said state.
Anyone who says that Austin/Texas is not Southern is either full of the Texas butthurt, stupid, or both.
Dallas is a very well known southern city. But I guess since Austin is south of Dallas, that makes Dallas the great white north.
Austin is in the South. However, it apparently falls out of being in The South category due to lack of red necks, hill billies, coon asses, country boys, and trailer parks.
With that Criteria:
Huntington Beach, California has just as high a ratio of red necks as any town in Louisiana. Seriously, the place is full of country boys with affliction shirts, 4X4 trucks with confederate bumper stickers and tribal band bicep tats. So, I guess Huntington Beach, California is in The South, even though it isn't in the South?
And I guess Irvine, CA is in Vietnam?
