re: Consistent Century link outages from 12-2 am - humblepie
I have to admit my first thought when reading "noticed it happening at 1 am on the dot" and "trying to stream a show right before bed" was... There is your problem right there, you are staying up too late! Just go to bed...

re: Consistent Century link outages from 12-2 am - humblepie
I have Centurylink's fiber service and had some frequent but unpredictable speed problems.

re: Act now: DefenceVPN 94% off on lifetime subscription. - humblepie
Don't expect too much security from a vpn service and you will be fine. I don't have any expectation other than "encrypt my data stream" for when I must use sensitive apps/sites over wireless connections(cellular or wifi). Don't expect them to hide your illegal activities( not directed at OP just a ...

re: Can a single zwave light switch be paired with 2 hubs? - humblepie
Strange, I just had someone tell me they switched from smartthings to wink2 because they didn't like some of the limitations with smartthings.

re: Best Phone Provider For Value? - humblepie
I really depends on your specific needs. You need to know how much data you use every month and what features are important(like tethering maybe?). I have 3 lines with T-Mobile $140/month and the give a rebate of $10 per line if any line uses less that 2GB. Also, they provide Netflix for free, fr...
