So for a while I think the "Mini" brand has lost their sense of what it means to be mini. I think the name of the Countryman could have easily been the "Misnomer." It's bigger than my Prius.

Yeah. I love me a Morris Minor or a Riley Elf. Or an original Mini. All of which could fit in the boot of the Countryman/Misnomer.

IPAs in the summer, stouts in the winter for me.  Nothing to warm you up like a thick, roasty imperial stout.

More evidence that we're living in the future. This would be one component of a Star Trek tricorder-like device... In your cell phone.
 
Spectrometers just became pocket sized. How will we use this revolutionary tech?

Oh, there are a million useful things for this. I've looked into building a quantitative spectrometer myself, off and on, for many years. Can't do it without spending mountains of money.

I just want IPv6 at home, #Comcast. I'm a BUSINESS INTERNET customer. Please train your CSRs to not hang up on people when they don't understand the question. Nina was most certainly not helpful.

I know for a fact that Comcast has been rolling out IPv6. They said in 2014 that they had upgraded their entire network: http://corporate.comcast.com/comcast-voices/comcast-reaches-key-milestone-in-launch-of-ipv6-broadband-network

Now that the pool of remaining IPv4 addresses had just about run dry (http://m.v3.co.uk/v3-uk/news/2416031/ipv4-address-stock-dwindles-as-north-american-database-runs-dry), it's time for IPv6. Comcast has been a leading force in IPv6 deployment so I have no idea why they are dragging their heels now, other than that they can.
Already recognized as the world’s largest native broadband IPv6 deployment - Comcast is pleased to announce that 100 percent of Comcast’s broadband network has been fully deployed to support IPv6 duel stack connectivity.

+Christopher Tate is there anything I can help you with regarding IPv6 and your Comcast service?

A note on exponential growth. While you aren't looking, exponential trends simply EXPLODE.

When my career started in the late 80s, 10 Mbps Ethernet was so fast that it was shared among a lot of users. In fact, at NASA/Goddard we had on the order of 10,000 users on a single broadcast domain sharing 10 Mbps.

Today, we use 1 Gbps for low-end desktop connectivity and it's dedicated to each station - not shared anymore! In terms of my starting point, over 100,000 times faster but when you factor in the 10,000x over-subscription due to sharing - so really somewhere between 100 thousand and 1 billion times faster. Comfortably you could say that a dedicated gigabit is faster by a factor of 1 million compared to 10 Mbps being shared by 10,000 people.

Now, the boffins behind Ethernet are pushing for 10 terabits per second Ethernet (10 Tbps) networks by 2025. That's 10,000x faster than 1 Gbps of today. At work we use 100 Gbps today, but that's only used for really fancy high-end networking gear where a single pair of line cards can cost as much as a house.

Nothing else, except maybe Moore's Law, can approach a technology that can scale by a performance factor of 10,000 billion (a.k.a. 10 trillion or said another way: 10 million million) in 50 years. It's staggering.

Here is a summary of the history of Ethernet from 2013 (it's 40th anniversary): http://standards.ieee.org/events/ethernet/history.html
Except for some edge cases where extreme low-latency or high bandwidth is absolutely required, the Ethernet protocol absolutely rules networking in the dat

One of the neat things about my lab at Lucent was the layers upon layers of outdated cabling technology under the floor. It was almost literally a rat's nest (I kept waiting to see some run by) of cables. I'm pretty sure the only way to ever clean it up would have been to rip out the whole raised floor and throw everything away to start fresh. But between that and the huge storeroom full of old computers we found, working there was a walk through the history of computing.

If you are a Comcast customer, you should be able to get IPv6. It's important that you try.

Hint: If your home gateway/WiFi device doesn't support IPv6, try putting it into bridging mode. If your cable modem supports IPv6, then this will let your services at home get to the growing part of the Internet.

If you're not sure if you have IPv6, go here: http://test-ipv6.com/

I got excellent support from Comcast Network Engineering yesterday which made up for the fact that their customer service representative didn't know how to answer questions about IPv6.

+Todd Larsen, I'm assuming they are dhcp6. The SMC gateway allows you to make internal clients publically addressable by just adding their MACs to a table (and giving them a name like "tv"). The address is clearly <ComcastV6>:macliketextension. I then just update them in domains.google.com directly. so far, so good.

The need for IPv6 has even hit the mainstream media.

I would like +Comcastcares​ to please comment on why I can't get IPv6 on my business Internet connection in West Menlo Park, CA. This isn't just "nice to have" -- the time is NOW.
 
Via the +Washington Post, If IP address scarcity went unaddressed, this problem would have put a stranglehold on the Web. #IPv6 to the rescue!

My dog +Chester Tibbie​ is out on the porch looking for things to eat. There is nothing on the porch to eat. He's eating things anyway. You know, like twigs.

News summary: Macy's throws The Donald into a hole that he dug for himself. The Donald, undeterred, brought his shovel (it's gold-plated!) and kept digging. Go, Donald, go!

Lover of fine food and whisky.
Introduction
Welcome to my profile. Thanks for stopping by! I'm really glad you're here.

I'm a whisky (and whiskey!) padawan who enjoys learning about these products! I am also a craft beer lover, and am lucky to live in an area with lots of great breweries and distilleries....

On Twitter you may know me as @whisky2dot0 (I also have a Facebook account of the same name, and a "Whisky2.0" Facebook page).

Great food and ambience - they really know how to prepare beef! Try a perfect Manhattan with Whistle Pig Rye whiskey. Goes great with a steak if you're not in the mood for wine.

My wife's car had a slow leak in a tire. I couldn't find it. When I took it to America's Tire, they fixed it for free in 45 minutes. The service staff was friendly, bi-lingual and did the job properly in the promised time, even though I was there at the end of the day. And the best part: They didn't try to sell me tires I didn't need; you can bet I'll go back, and so should you.

My dog has been a training customer for over a year and he is always complimented for his good behavior. I know this has as much to do with practice as the trainer, but me knowing what to practice is the key. Lately he has also become a doggy daycare customer every Thursday and he's learning to interact in a supervised yet unstructured environment -- no crates -- just dogs being dogs (with corrections as necessary from the staff).
