They're just testing it in Beaumont, TX.

So it's not that you're just on it, like Woot, it's what you're doing on it?



When I was a kid I wanted to be older, this CRAP is NOT what I expected.

Afternoon folks. We've got a dusting of snow on the ground already and it's still coming down. I don't think we're getting a lot, but I hope we get enough to completely cover the grass - it looks so purrrty.

So I got up "early" this morning and hopped right in the shower so I could be ready if the doctor could take me first thing this morning. I called and he didn't have any openings today. Not only could I have slept in, but I could have saved the energy I used in the shower. I've pretty much been asleep all morning - heck I've been asleep for the past 3 days!

Lady Poof,
I think it's not how long you're sitting on the potty, it's how many times you flush.

I just read an article about it. The 5% that use %50 of the bandwidth aren't going to be signing up in beaumont. This test is going to be a complete failure. Unless the prices are going to be super cheap.

Reminds me of a joke I heard a while back.

Three Southern ladies went out to lunch and were comparing gifts that their husband had given to them. The first lady is showing off a big diamond ring, "My husband got me this 10carat ring for my 40th birthday". "Oh My", replies Betty-Sue. The second lady said, "see that Mercedes convertible? My husband got me that for an anniversary gift". "Oh My!", Betty Sue says again. The other two ask Betty Sue, "what did your husband get you?" "He sent me to charm school". The other two started laughing at poor Betty Sue and asked, "why in the world would he have sent you to Charm school?" "Well, I used to say f*** you, but now I say "Oh My!"

Thanks. His teacher says he's prepared. He goes into her class about 30 minutes early every day for help and to do more practice work. It's just on tests, he freaks. He always has. It finally just dawned on me to ask for more time. I'm crossing my fingers that it will continue to help.

Daughter did that last Christmas. When she didn't bounce back in a couple of days I decided she must have some terrible disease and took her to the doctor. She had the flu. I felt really stupid. If I had gotten her to the Doctor in time she could have taken the flu meds. This year she got a flu shot. I hope you get better soon!

Sadly, this analogy works.

Its like leaving the water running constantly when you download movies/music.

Don't bet on it. The idea's out there now. If all of providers do it, no one will have a choice. They start it out this way, like they're testing it. Like food on airplanes.

So does this mean that I would get hit more for watching videos on YouTube or online movies/shows? Or is it just if you download them? I'd really have to smack son around in that case. He's always watching & downloading videos.

Thanks. I got the flu shot this year, so I'm hoping that's not it. I've had a horrible sore throat - maybe Strep throat? I used to get that a lot as a kid. My throat is feeling somewhat better, but now I'm coughing and still have the stuffy nose.

Mr. Cruzer,
Are the heavy users being given a choice? If they can just force the heavy users off of Time Warner and keep the current low-bandwidth users at something close to current fees, then they come out ahead.

Ms. Daj, I imagine it's anything that has to go through the interweb tubes into your house.

this especially sucks for the people that have ATT Uverse. You get phone, tv, internet all through one cable. That's a lot of bandwidth going through.

That's if the idea spreads...

I'll say this: I can only see two pictures. One is Joyner's sig, and the other is the crying smiley from woot. anything else that may be on the page is blocked.

I just changed my pic above to TinyPic. Does that work? If not, you may be hosed. I need one that will take images from a URL.

Mr. Cruzer,
Most of the sigs are on Imageshack. Ms. Krapposelli's is on Photobucket. Ms. Joyner's is from an animated gif site www.millan.net.

Joyners is a hot link from a smilie site, not a host site.
