+Google Drive Google Drive, "We want to store your files... unless they're on a server" WTF? You retire my sync client, tell me to install the "new" one then won't let me, crippling my business!?

It continues to blow my mind that our government officials cannot understand the difference between bits flying over a network and speech. If an ISP cannot manage their traffic, everyone loses.

The irony that he uses BitTorrent traffic as an example pretty much sums it up. And is p is stuck between providing enough bandwidth to keep their customers and having enough bandwidth to serve all their customers. Trends such as BitTorrent being used to traffic illegal movies and video mean the isps have to give a lot of traffic too bad players that they would rather give to their average customer. Net neutrality is tying their hands and if there is not enough margin in the long run, the consumers are going to pay the price.

This is just one more example of the government trying to regulate something they don't understand and screwing it up. This would be the 2018 version of Atlas Shrugged.

The arguments about ISP monopolies are just too silly. The internet is literally designed so that it cannot be monopolized and anybody can be an ISP. for all intents, a guest at my house utilizes my Wi-Fi as if I were the ISP and that neutrality laws would stand of the way of me managing my guests since I am highly confident it doesn't account for those differences since it is fundamentally flawed.

#netneutrality isn't going to create a "neutral net"





Markey said that net neutrality rules are needed because of events like Comcast throttling BitTorrent traffic and AT&T blocking Skype and other voice applicationsthat compete against its mobile phone service.

"Net neutrality is the free speech issue of our time," Markey said.

He's been a persistent and positive image in my life and his passing hits close.

My thoughts are with his family and everyone else who is feeling his departure.
Bad news: R. Lee Emery (aka: The Gunny) has passed away!

Can anyone point me to something that clearly demonstrates the logic in this article faulty? I'm trying to better wrap my head around these political labels I've heard s hatefully thrown around through my life and I'm surprised to heard these comparisons.

I need access to a metal lathe for a few hours and techshop has closed its doors for the time. Anyone have a lathe or suggestions on where I can easily get access?

It has begun.

This isn't so fancy but I'll take this over the same old view so long as the family is with me.
