re: This working from home attitude is bullshite(rant) - WavinWilly
Maybe it's a different situation but I can get exponentially more done at home than at my office. I am in charge of our network around the world and people sometimes seem to think that this means I'm also help desk and will bypass our help desk to come ask me some inane question that is a distractio...

re: Samsung Washing Machine owners saying fix is BS! (I know affects some of y'all) - WavinWilly
Still haven't done anything with the recall. The fix is BS, and I don't want to actually buy a new one right now. I've loaded mine down big time with bedding and used the "old" bedding setting before new instructions came out and never had any issues. Now using the new, low spin setting I imagine ev...

re: Certification help - WavinWilly
Don't focus so much on the certifications just to get a cert. I have met MCSE's and CCNPs that didn't know jack. But if it's a Microsoft server I would buy a Microsoft book and learn it. Don't study the test study the material first, since you are so new. And lab it. Create a virtual environment...

re: DirectTV Now is down - WavinWilly
So I've finally taken some time to do some digging and the routes that I am taking to get to the CDN node are absurd. I am in Covington, and on 1Gb fiber with AT&T. Using their internal DNS. A trace route has me bouncing to Kansas, and then Boston, and then switzerland(!) and eventually hitting a...

re: New Hulu Experience Featuring Live TV - WavinWilly
I fricking love competition. Once my 3 month dtv now pre-pay is up I will probably give this a spin. Dtv now still hasn't gotten their act together 100%. Clearly a very rushed product and pushed out the door to heat Hulu and YouTube to market....

re: DirectTV Now is down - WavinWilly
working for me on a computer. Not home to test from a ATV or AFTV. I fell asleep with it on and somehow became logged out overnight, and I thought that was odd. Logged in and was working from my AFTV around 415 this morning....

re: I want to get away from Cable providers for TV service.... - WavinWilly
Your best bet is PS Vue and possibly an antenna. Depending on where you are, you may get locals, but you have to be in a major city (NO is not one) to get them. I had PS Vue and an antenna and liked it, recently switched to DirecTVNow but that only has 2 simultaneous streams so wouldn't work for you...

[quote]Something must be going on with your connection. I signed up on launch day and after the initial issues with all of the new users I have had zero problems.

[quote] When they add locals, will those of us who bought in at the introductory rate get them with no additional charge? [/quote] With AT&T, who knows. I fully expect DVR to be an add-on feature that costs extra. But maybe all the current and upcoming competition will keep them honest....

re: PSVUE vs Directv Now - WavinWilly
The stability and quality was greatly improved yesterday for the bowl games. I only had a couple of pauses throughout the whole day, on both an ATV and AFTV. Normally I lose the ability to watch during high demand or prime time. The Rose and Sugar were crystal clear....

re: PSVUE vs Directv Now - WavinWilly
[quote]Only thing I don't like is lack of local channels. Thinking of buying this antenna on Amazon. Thoughts? Mohu Leaf. [/quote] Depends on where you are located. I am in the Mandeville Covington area and struggle to pull in stations with an attic antenna. If you are in a bigger city or close...
