re: Woohoo! Comcast increased my cap to 1 Tb at no charge - Korkstand
[quote]I only use about 100 or alittle more GB per month. I've yet to hit 200.[/quote]You have DirecTV, don't you? Try to switch to Vue and see what happens to your data use. The average is almost 3 hours of TV per day, so that's about 225gigs that Vue would use on top of your typical 100. If you ha...

re: Woohoo! Comcast increased my cap to 1 Tb at no charge - Korkstand
Don't get too excited. You have to ask yourself why they are leaving a cap in place at all if only 1% of users currently use 1tb. Answer: because they know that nearly everyone will hit that cap in a few short years, and they will be ready to collect those fees from the cord cutters, or steer them b...

re: Looking for NAS (network attached storage) recommendations. - Korkstand
[quote]if I am spending as much as Korkstand is talking about, I'd just build a Plex server in a desktop box with a large case that can hold a ton of hard drives in RAID, run Linux or FreeBSD on it, and set it up as a server with as much flexibility and customization as you want.

re: Avast Anti-Virus Shady Billing Practices - Korkstand
Well, I don't know what to tell you other than I'm nearly 100% certain that Avast is not logging your keystrokes and stealing card numbers. That's the kind of thing their software protects against. ...

re: Avast Anti-Virus Shady Billing Practices - Korkstand
There is pretty much zero chance that Avast stole your new number. More likely is your old card number wasn't truly canceled (and was instead just expired or marked as such), and I believe some banks or credit card companies sometimes honor charges to old numbers (which get "forwarded" to the new nu...
