The Internet is going to slow down...tell me this isn't true!
...Telephone companies want to recoup escalating costs by increasing prices for “net hogs” who use more than their share of capacity...

If we are truly running out then how can they possibly keep signing up subscribers would that be like opening a supermarket and saying we have
enough bread on the shelf to supply the neighborhood so long as everyone only purchases one slice.

Yeah, I know about those discussions, but I've never heard the Net is going to get so clogged, it will become like dial-up.

I noticed that, but heard them talk about it on 13 this morning, but they get their news at the same place.
Wouldn't the overseas people be using more BW since a lot have fiber, bet they stream everything?

One telco exec said useage was increasing 50% per year but revenue was 3%. I would not think that would be sustainable in the log term.
Those figures are quite amazing.

Just watched the Kentucky Derby and 50-1 long shot Mind that Bird just won by wide margin. One of biggest upsets in Derby history. Horse only cost $9,500 dollars and was running against million dollar ones. Good for him! Love an under
You poor Texans and your weather. They broke in at the end of the Derby and showed photos where the Dallas Cowboys indoor training facility in Irving, TX had just collapsed from being blown down by wind. 4 people injured and no other details.

Yeah, I saw that...and some guy in that area on the illigimate sister site is blaming that rain for his UV TV going nuts.
Back to the horses, I don't approve of WHAT they do to them behind the scenes to MAKE them run...did you hear about all the ones that died recently because someone mixed their vitamin/stimulants/feed wrong? Polo horses, no different, IMO.

Saw that story on the polo horses dying, really sad!
When I was 15-16 worked at a central Ohio harness track as a groom for a summer racing season. Actually lived there 6 days a week working 12-15 hrs per day. Back then you were allowed to "juice up" the horses and no drug testing done. In one month saw at least 5 horses drop dead right after the finish line. Really sick. Amish were there and slept with pitchforks in front of stall doors so no one would sneak up and give there horses a downer.
Fridays were payday and saw these long-term guys just shoot one roll of craps for their entire paychecks. Whole different world for me and taught me a lot about other side of life, and of course horses.

CNN) -- The French Navy said they seized 11 pirates Sunday after they apparently mistook a French military vessel for a commercial ship and made a run at it.

I heard a good quote at a friend's Commencement. If someone knocks you down and you can't get up bite them on the leg.
One speaker's only used cliches in his speech. The crowd ate it up.

It would probably make all of us ill if we new just where are tax dollars are going I get pretty sick on the stuff the media has made us aware of maybe
in this case ignorance is bliss.

Anyone going to the early screening of Star Trek tonight?
I'd like to, but have to paint mouldings. I'm so tired of painting...
05-07-2009 08:23:51 AM
Its been the only movie of late that i actually wanted to go see on the big screen but then those bad memories of kids kicking the back of the seat
and cell phones going off so guess I will buy it on Blu-Ray when available.
