[quote]not really giving up on jennings, but from what I saw Harris is just a better talent. I'm not really knocking jennings, but he just doesn't have the skills harris does. Had he been here a year earlier this probably isn't even a competition IMO

IMO, you have to take a player that can not only help you, but also hurt the other teams who have a chance of knocking you out of the playoffs. So, which guy could we take that would help end Seattle's season? If not Seattle, which guy would ruin SF?...

So, after all this talk, I need some recommendations for a new router. I currently have a 54g router to replace.

meh, most of these companies you are referring to have volume license agreements with Microsoft. Running XP, Windows 7, Windows 8.1, Server 2003, Server 2008 R2, Server 2012 R12 has no cost difference. These companies can upgrade their server software at no cost of software....

It is also an issue where Security/Risk Management departments have responsibility but not actionable authority. Those departments should be able to remove servers like that from the network if there are security concerns.
It would help remove those decisions from penny pushing managements....

[quote]I would suggest that if it was a service pack, that may not be such a good idea on an older system. Depending on the size of the company and the exposure of the server to outside traffic, you may want to skip some updates to keep the system running well. [/quote]They should upgrade the system...

Microsoft Updates are really the last line of defense in securing critical systems. Sure, IT people install them when they can. But, they aren't the 1st, 2nd, 3rd, etc. line of defense as far as security is concerned....

The only reason that the iPad wins out in the tablet market is because of apps. The apps optimized for iPad are far and away better than the Android tablet optimized apps.

I did say that client to client can benefit from a better router. I guess my explanation was bad. Still, ac is overkill unless you are doing a lot of HD streaming from a lot of devices simultaneously. You can do full 1080p, 3D, with Dolby surround streaming with less than 20 Mbps.
Plus, most peo...

The Chromecast will only use wireless n, even with an AC1700 router. So, you will only get 900 Mbps to your chromecast, regardless of whether you use an AC1700 router or N900. You are limited by the physical hardware inside the Chromecast. It won't get there any faster....

People are recommending 1200-1900 Mbps capable routers to someone that won't approach 500Mbps from their ISP for 5 years. And if the ISP did, the DOCSIS 3.0 modem they have wont support it.
