Comcast employs monthly bandwidth limit! (Update)

Starting October 1 2008 Comcast will limit its users to 250GB bandwidth/month.  Comcast said they will contact people who go over the 250GB/month limit but after the “second offense” they would suspend their account for a year.

This is an outrage! Comcast is just pissed off that the FCC has stopped them from packet shaping. Some people say “well I would just switch services if they did that to me” well unfortunately I cannot do this as Comcast is my only option for a “high speed” Internet, also I could not go back to dial-up because I do not have a phone line at my house.

Thanks a lot Comcast for once again fucking over your customers! Alls I can say is that they better have a way for me to check how much bandwidth I have used in a given month!

Vista: is it really that terrible, or just bad PR?

Is all the bad press Vista has gotten really just the placebo effect? Is it really that bad? Microsoft shows off their “New OS” “Mojave” to people who have not used Vista but have some negative thoughts or feelings about it to see if it indeed is the negative press that gives Vista a bad rap. I think this shows Microsoft’s ingenuity to work out a problem that might just be a bad PR problem with Vista, it also goes to show that stuffy old Microsoft can “think out of the box”.

trm96.com moving soon…

In the next 60 or so days (around September, 9th)  I am moving to a new webhost. The move should not take that long but if there are times that the site is not available don’t worry! There will not be any need to update your bookmarks as they will all still work. The move should make the site load a lot faster and be more reliable!

Thanks,
Brett “trm96″
