Seriously, something's gotta give. I caught Comcast throttling my download speeds two nights ago and sent them a lengthy email letting them know what I felt about it. I converted my dad's LP, reel-to-reel, and cassette collections to MP3 in the summer of 2005. In summer 2007, I set up an account at AT&T Online Vault (an online backup service) and uploaded all of those MP3s, my dad's home movies, and my mom and dad's photos - it totaled over 22 GB.

My dad's hard drive crashed and I was trying to download everything I had uploaded. The download started at 380 KB/s and, two hours later, dwindled to 5 KB/s. I stopped the Vault download, rebooted my router, modem, and PC to see if my hardware was the culprit. I tried downloading a game demo and, lo and behold, it was still at 5 KB/s. Even my email was downloading very slowly. This was at 9 A.M. on a Sunday, so I highly doubt there was so much traffic in my neighborhood that could affect my download speeds so much.

My download speed hovered between 5 KB/s and 10 KB/s. Coincidentally, almost exactly 24 hours later, my speeds went back up to normal. I tried the same thing again on Monday around 10:15 A.M. and the same thing happened - ~400 KB/s download speeds down to 5 or 6. I'm still waiting on an email response
Id find the fcc email address and send them a email to saying comcast lied and their thottleing webtrafic also.

Honestly I think the anti-comcast crowd is just unhappy that they didn't come up with the idea first. I mean seriously there's not a single business in this world that will play fair if they don't have to.

Oh yes they will.... they have plenty more lobbyists in Washington...

To answer most of your questions: (1) a fridge cannot cool a PC (2) 64-bit OS for over 3.4GB (3) If a PCIe card fits, it should work (4) Resolution, not screen size (5) Report, not respond to Spam (6) Single-Rail/Non-Modular PSUs are not always better than Multi-Rail/Modular (7) Sequential does not matter as much as random for OS drives (8) Requirements come before hardware for servers

This is a very controversial event around here. Expect to see me post an article from campus shortly.
