Re: Comcast dropping Powerboost with some speed increases

I am pulling this out of my head but most broadband is asymmetrical. Putting more bandwidth to downloading than uploading making the connect more efficient. Unless one running a server one dose need much bandwidth for uploading. One could have a symmetrical connection but it will cost you on bandwidth so instead of down/up of 20Mbs / 5Mbs one is left with 14.5Mbs in each direction.

Just bought a Nintendo 3DS yesterday

I bought a Nintendo 3DS XL yesterday at Best Buy. Spent a couple of hours playing it. I also bought a Copy of New Super Mario Bros 2 and the first night of playing it I made it to World 6. I guess 20 years of playing various Mario games paid off. I also downloaded a few Game Boy games that I have not played since I was hospitalized in 1998.

I bought the larger 3DS and holding it can be a challenge with my big hands as it was designed for users who are primarily children but adults find it fun as well. It could also be health issues that make it hard to hold as well (I have a mild case of Cerebral Palsy and my hands are swollen from excessive salt intake).

I still have my original Game Boy, I also have the Game Boy Color, Game Boy Advance, and DS lite. I have been playing video games since 1990 when I was 7 years old. At 29 I still enjoy the Mario games. I am not really interested in bloody, violent video games. The only violence in video games I'm used to is Mario stomping on a Goomba and Koopa, Mario throwing Bowser into lava or Piranha Plants spitting fireballs at Mario.

Re: Go Ravens!

While I don’t really care who wins the Super Bowl, as I have no intense love or hate for either the 49ers of the Ravens, I would like to see Baltimore win for two reasons. 1) Ray Lewis 2) The Blind Side was a good movie. However, I do think the 49ers will win. Kaepernick’s arm and legs will carry their offence and I don’t think the Baltimore offensive can match the SF output.

Because then you could actually use your connection for more then just pure consumption.

Re: Just bought a Nintendo 3DS yesterday

Anything flashy is health hazardous other than your hand. When I was at the age of about 5, I played maybe 3+ hours of super mario bros 64 i think it was and i got this horrible migraine that occured and then all the sudden i dropped to the floor (sezior) and was'nt breathing.. About a half an hour later or somethin i woke up and had to be rushed to the ER. Playing these types of games on old TV sets and monitor screens should be taken very seriously IMO. Its also very bad for your eyes and can ruin your retina's permanent.

Kids if your reading this, please don't do what I did, even though there was light in the room, it can still be fetal and you may experience major headaches down the road (migraines).

You may have been unconscious for 30 minutes - which is a long time after a seizure - but you were breathing. I have friends who are epileptic and they all avoid flashing or fast moving series lights even on a christmas tree for that very reason.

Take care of you and be careful when you are driving. Some of the new cop cars have bright white halogen lights on the top of the car that flash in series that can have same affect.

oh? Then I wonder.. Has my entire family been lieing to me all this time for 15 years saying that my brother saved my life? I was told over and over that my brother did cpr on me and the ambulance toke precisely 45 minutes to arrive.

Re: Go SF

Chris Carter was pretty wet yesterday. Given Ray Lewis' storied career, I'd say we're in for more waterworks down the road.

Chris Carter said yesterday was the best day of his life. I wonder what his son thinks of that? As a father of three, the best days of my life all come when I experience them having their best days.

Re: Go Ravens!

I'd like to see the 49ers win simply because I don't feel Baltimore deserves to be there. I know that's not nice to Baltimore fans but it just doesn't seem the Ravens are the best team. Denver is a better team but the defense screwed the pooch and before that, they probably should have let Payton throw a first down to end the game.

However, I have mixed emotions about the 49ers because Kaepernick seems a bit too cocky. Unless someone cleans his clock and he never recovers, he'll have an all-star career but I'm not sure he's done enough yet to be this cocky. Losing the big one would be better for him than winning. I think he'll be a better leader if he loses because his god complex might diminish enough that the rest of the team will play their hardest for him.

Re: Comcast dropping Powerboost with some speed increases

I don't think cable's DOCSIS bandwidth works that way. There are separate upload and download streams (frequencies/channels) and raising the upload doesn't mean you have to give up download. At some point what you say could be true. Cable plants have ~1Ghz of usable spectrum and until the combined download and upload consume all of that spectrum, changing either doesn't mean the other has to lose.

The coming DOCSIS spec has some lofty claims of possible 10Gbps over coax with a 2Gpbs return path.

Re: Go Ravens!

I see where you’re coming from about not deserving to be there. That’s how I felt the Giants, especially after losing 5 out of 6 games in the second half of the season last year. If in Week 13 of the 2011 season if Jason Garrett didn’t ice his own kicker, the Cowboys would have won that came against the Cards, the Cowboys and Giants would have had the same record at 9-7. Granted NY swept the season series, but if anything else happened, and the Giants had one more loss, like if the Cowboys beat the Giants a week later on SNF, instead of losing by a Field Goal, the Giants wouldn’t have been in the playoffs. The I hate the Giants with a deep passion, and some of this is hatred speaking and some of this is fact, the NY Giants didn’t even deserve to be in the Playoffs last season and certainly didn’t deserve a ring. But that’s what happened. I feel the 2012 Ravens team is worlds better than the Giants were last year. They’re more dynamic and Flacco is better than baby Manning. Hopefully they do something other than hand the ball to Ray Rice every first down for 2 yard gain.

I sure hope it hits here in California. I don't mind if they drop PB, it only in effect for about 10 or 20 seconds anyways, after that it goes to the sustain speed of 15 mbps anyways.

Re: Just bought a Nintendo 3DS yesterday

I did not *see* where you mentioned CPR. You're extremely lucky big brother was at home and knew how to administer it. Of course your family did not lie. And it does not surprise me that it took an ambulance 45 minutes to arrive at your house because I live in rural America, too. I've observed seizures in people that were triggered by various events.

Your parents were terrified ;of that I am sure as lost a child. I had a dog that had the Petit Mal type seizures for years. I felt so helpless when it happened.

I am very glad you are alive to explain it to other. It never occurred to me the pretty flashing lights I loved as a kid, and used as a landmark as an adult could cause so many unexpected consequences such as seizures.

Super Bowl power outage

Power is out at the Superdome, why did they have to suspend play as the lighting is more than adequate to play football. I've been to high school football games with less lighting as budget strapped school districts have to reduce the wattage of the bulbs to contain costs.
