re: Coach O as a LB coach and assigning him to North LA - Tech Support Grunt
[quote]quote: I thought "we" hate North LA. But want their players? Why should they go to LSU when they aren't wanted? Typical south Louisiana poster: "North Louisiana sux. It's south Arkansas/east Texas/west Mississippi. Nothing ever happens there. I would never live there or even visit." ...

re: IT Professionals, check in here - Tech Support Grunt
You would have to understand the satisfaction I get when someone smugly tells me they've already rebooted their equipment. That the techs always ask them to reboot, but it never does anything. Then I check uptime and tell them I know they haven't rebooted it. Then force them to reboot while I watch ...

re: Net neutrality is good for capitalism - Tech Support Grunt
[quote]Not a good analogy...I view the ISPs more like the owner of the mall...they have a limited amount of space that they rent out to various merchants. Now imagine if the gov passed a law requiring malls to rent space to every single merchant at a set price.[/quote] The "mall" is already renti...

[quote]What about 4G? [/quote] I don't have much experience with 4G other than the little bit I use it on my phone. Speeds are OK, but all of the issues that are present with any wireless internet still exist. Latency would be better than satellite since they only have to travel to the cell tower...

[quote]If you have satellite you have three options that I'm aware of: hughesnet, direct and dish.[/quote] Satellite internet is not a serious alternative to a wired high speed connection. Latency will be 300ms+ easily. HughesNet also has a data cap ranging from 10Gb-40Gb per month depending on t...
