Yesterday, I went Google Fiberspotting in Morrisville, NC, to see what a Google Fiber deployment looks like. I didn't see much - and that's impressive!

This is just what I've been looking for. Thanks for the video! I will pop my clock out and see if a little solder will fix it right up.

Great outdoor seating and selection of beers. Burger Mondays are sure to lure the lunchtime work crowd. Service can sometimes be spotty but overall The Station is a fun, unpretentious local restaurant and bar.

The most nature you can get within 20 minutes of Raleigh! Glide over a silky-smooth, tannin-filled pond beneath a gorgeous canopy of Cypress trees filled with herons, eagles, and more! Robertson Millpond is an enchanting, unforgettable Wake County Park!

I sheltered here during the Armageddon and would never do it again! The cots were way too hard, the rations were somewhat tasteless, my room had NO windows, and it was next to impossible to get the generals' attention when the sheets and towels needed changing. What you see in the brochure doesn't match the actual experience. Take my advice: the next time the world ends, steer clear of Mount Weather! Go with a Hampton Inn or similar chain. You'll be glad you did!
