  1. Finally gave up AT&T and called Spectrum.  They're definitely the second choice in terms of uplink and downlink speed and ping times.  OTOH, they actually managed to get their shit working, unlike that other utility.  And OTGH pretty much anything beats AT&T's old 8mbit DSL.

  13. Hello everyone! Please keep your eyes peeled for the loveliest event of the year!~ AF will be hosting a Valentines event soon. <3 <3 <3

  14. Getting far too familiar with navigating AT&T's phone hell.

    Still no fiber.  I think the gods are having fun with me again.  :angry:

  15. Ohhhh, you like Planetes! It’s one of my favourite (maybe even my number one). Recommend any similar hard sci-fi shows??

  16. AT&T confirmed the install.. tomorrow is when the fiber comes.

    Still trying to get my head around 300Mb broadband.  I mean, I remember 300 baud modems, 2Mbit arcnet, and 10Mbit ethernet.  Data from NASA's Mars spacecraft comes down at around 6Mb.  My current DSL is about 10 (upgraded from 56kb dialup).  300Mb be like...FLCLsmile.gif.f3b5f684b271f685252a01cc73f16c0a.gif

  17. UTC 2020-01-01 00:00:01 .. year rollover bug caused all our interfaces that connect our NOC to external users to core dump and refuse to restart. So far I'm not a fan of the new decade.

  18. Today is xmas shopping.  Especially for my brother and his family in WIsconsin I need to get something shipped today or tomorrow!

  19. Woke up early Saturday so dizzy I could hardly stand.  Turns out there's a loose stone in my head (who knew?) that's rattling around in my inner ear and affecting my balance.  Got some medicine from the doctor, but it knocks me out.  So my choices for this weekend have been either sleep or feeling like I just got off a slightly too-long ride on a playground merry-go-round. 

    On the plus side, it is quite a bit better today than yesterday.  This morning the room was not spinning when I woke up like yesterday, and in fact I've found that if I keep my head still then I'm pretty much ok.  It is only when I tilt or rotate my head that I get in trouble.  I managed to - carefully - do a bit of laundry today and I'm watching TV, but unfortunately the xmas shopping and decorating I'd had planned for this weekend was not to be.  Things like driving a car and climbing on ladders don't sound like things I should be attempting at the moment.
