  1. Accident analysis: Not your forte. Creative writing: See Accident analysis.
  2. A relative, is she? "NO ONE was hurt". That is irrelevant to the matter, someone quite easily could have been. Wrong gear, bad brakes, the poles changed north for south, yadda yadda, yadda. I have seen a picture where there is a skid mark just under the front tire. What a gullible twat you are, or are you just a bad liar? Not that they're mutually exclusive.
  3. Last time read similar sentiments was in a tract by Frederick Douglass quoting an anti-abolitionist. Sometimes a persons true character can't help but betray oneself, huh?

  5. Are response times an issue? I've never tried a TV in place of a monitor.
  6. Apparently they're not at all environmentally responsible... https://www.nature.com/articles/d41586-018-07283-3 https://medium.com/@cyberianmine/energy-consumption-of-bitcoin-9a9cc4a4eeb9 ...and how you put a smiley-face on it... https://qz.com/1364657/bitcoins-energy-consumption-isnt-as-bad-as-you-think/
  7. I was at Costco last week and saw a 27" HP monitor going for about $2700 mx. Choices were very limited and the HP was the cheapest.
  8. For any one considering jumping to a different brand of e-reader, there is an open source (free) e-book management application called Calibre that, among many other functions, can convert your existing e-books into a compatible format for just about any brand of e-book reader. The application is available for Windows, Mac, and Linux. Check it out.
  9. My points were generalities that stand regardless of technology. Hardware is, and for the foreseeable future will be, the bottleneck in EVERY modern network. Single mode fiber has a capacity that modern transceivers can't saturate, even optical transmission systems such as HDWDM still can't push SM fiber to capacity.. Transit and peering? Are you telling me something I don't already know? You're in sales aren't you?
  10. Did I do that, Tom, put fiber in the same category as other mediums? No, I didn't. As someone who has worked in the network engineering departments of some fairly notable internet providers; Global Crossing, Exodus Communications, and SAVVIS, I think I have a pretty good handle on the technology. I have specified equipment for, installed (including terminations using a fusion splicer) and supported fiber based networks. Past experience includes, but is not limited to SONET, ATM, BGP, MPLS, OSFP, ISIS, STP, and multicast. Tom said: Because fiber is newer technology, the networks have fewer bottlenecks up to the ISP network boundary. Complete crap, and you should know it. Network performance is dependent on much more than just fiber Tom also said: Beyond that, into other networks, where Telmex and Ilox have to pay traffic costs, the oversubscription and degradation of bandwidth begins. It happens mostly at the later stages in the connection up to your destination. Also complete crap. Traffic leaving the subscribers edge network tends NOT to be limited as it traverses the peering/transit networks. This traffic tends to traverse their peers border network only; where speed and efficiency are supreme and hence will have very limited massaging of the traffic. Typically only routing occurs here. Only if the traffic is terminating on a peer's local edge will there be any rate-limiting/filtering.
  11. Yes, all internet-to-the-home services will eventually degrade with increased subscribers. Fiber isn't magic, it's just another data transport medium. It all connects to hardware that has limits to it's capacity to move packets (data). And yes, DSL is subject to degradation too: wire terminations at the telco are subject to near-end-crosstalk on packets arriving at the telco which attenuates the signal and is why DSL is asynchronous.
  12. Confidential? On Google.com? Who's zoomin' who? I wonder how many people really know how the internet works.
  13. Does this program instruct one on how to perform miracles? I'm asking for a friend.
