Haven’t been around for several months, but NOW we have high speed internet out here in the boonies!! For those who remember what I had to deal with out here for many years, all I had was what I could use as “data” off my cell phone. Dealt with that for years, then COVID hit…… Things got really bad - to the point that it would take almost 4 hours to upload a file to YouTube…… Anyway, after my last YouTube upload,
I had to quit because it just wasn’t worth all the headaches!! However, after two years, (and a grant to bring high speed to rural areas), we finally have high speed!! Our connectivity has gone ballistic!! Here’s what I had, and here’s what I have today….
I know that a lot of you old forum folks probably thought that I just gave up, but thing is, I just couldn’t communicate anymore with slow speeds along with dealing with data caps on my cell phone - hell, I tool the entire B2B years ago using just “Phone Data”….
Anyway, hope to be around a bit more now that I have some decent internet!!
Damn that’s fast. Here in Australia, in our capital cities, we’re led to believe that our fibre network that cost billions is fast. I get 50Mbps down and about 20Mbps up for about AUD$90 a month. The so called ultra fast is 100Mbps.
Many people, still in capital cities, can’t even get that.
Even at these speeds we get periods where bandwidth is crap.
And welcome back, I’m not overly consistent here, but probably should be
Everything these days is “Smart”… However, I’m “Old”… (Thus the “Depends” reference)…
Now that we have high speed internet here, we just had our home thermostats replaced with those “Smart” ones… Pretty cool, but… I’m beginning to realize that the only reason “Smart” things were developed, was to prove that:
“Old” people are pretty much “Stupid” and don’t know how to use them… and…
“Young” people are pretty much “Lazy” and can’t get off their ass to turn a gahdamn thermostat knob…
One thing’s for certain,… when those thermostats were replaced, I did keep the “Old Stupid” ones just in case those “Smart” ones get to becoming too damn smart and become “Lazy” themselves and decide to just quit working!!!..
Now if technology would ever get to a point of the development of something like… “Smart Briefs” - “boxers or briefs” that were smart enough to sense whether an old person were to either just pass simple gas (or pass something a bit more substantial), and automatically change their composite structure to match the situation at hand,… then by all means,… I’d be all in!!!
