Re: All I want for xmas.... It seems naiive to claim your Internet connection has never been down, unless you've only had it say a couple of months. All telecomm connections experience downtime; it's just a matter of how much/little.
But by and large, I would agree...I want my vendor (currently Time-Warner/Roadrunner) to get me to/from the rest of the vendors (Level3, AT&T, Verizon, BT, NTT, etc.), agnostic of everything (protocol, address, etc.) except for RFC1918 addresses (shouldn't allow them out or feed them to me) and DSCP (if I set the bit(s) for low delay (for VoIP for example), I want that respected,and have those packets prioritized).
English is a difficult enough language to interpret correctly when its rules are followed, let alone when a writer chooses not to follow those rules.
Jeopardy! replies and randomcaps REALLY suck!
