    I wish I had a PhD in Gendarme studies. Anything would have helped.

    I was replying to the quote below. Maybe the Androids were acting up.

    That should go without saying, unfortunately it can't these days. Colleges and Universities will gladly sell you a worthless degree because they're largely in it for the money.

    I've never hired anyone with a worthless degree. Are they post grad or do you mean B.S.?

    My wife purchased some head-bands (on Etsy) from a young lady in Chicago. Took 3 days to transit from Chicago, to LA to Sydney Australia... 18 days from Sydney to be delivered to us... (We lost tracking when it got to Sydney, as Australia Post's new tracking system will only show local parcels and not parcels from international agencies).

    This is what I found in the box from Target when I received the two Blu-rays that I ordered online on Thanksgiving.



    I am quite proud of figuring out how to open the cases in under a minute once I found my neodymium magnets (without any aid from the Internet).

    I doubt the internet could help find your neodymium magnets.

    Apparently the flight begins when the plane leaves the gate even if it goes fucking nowhere for 40 minutes.

    This is new information to you? It's stacked in their favor as much as possible. Departure starts as soon as they pull the jetbridge away from the plane and arrival is the second the wheels touch down on the runway.

    I checked the two flights previous to mine and it was completely impossible to make a connection under the best of cases.
    Yet they would not allow any change until the connection is missed in the air. It's totally BS and now stuck in a strange city for 23 hours. I would have stayed home.

    What airport and what was the connection time? Was it on the same airline or at least codeshare partners? Generally they don't let you book something that creates an impossible to make connection. Some are pretty optimistic like 40 minutes at ATL, but they're not impossible if the flight arrives on time.

    This is storageforum.net: "SF". Before this place existed, many of us were members of another place; storagereview.com "SR". This is what Lunar was talking about.

    I guess I need to add reading comprehension to my list of faults. At my current rate of decline my non-nonsensical post will be indistinguishable from Lunar's in 5-6 years.

    I'm back in Europe after being in Mexico last week. This is too much travel around the holidays. Arriving in the early morning in Europe and rolling into work for a full day with limited sleep on the plane isn't my favorite thing either.

    I remember SR.
    Wasn't logging in very often and lost it when most of you left.
    Don't remember how, but was glad to find SF after a while.
    Learned a lot about PCs from this forum.
    It was a long time

    Am not too wiggly on my PC hardware now. Last processor upgrade was 4 years (I think) ago. Realized the things I do, don't need much power. Also, I'm a lot more patient now.
    And old.

    I doubt much is going to change. They were all subtly traffic shaping anyhow regardless of the law. The internet survived without "net neutrality" for many many years, so I don't really understand all the angst now like the world will end.

    The most interesting aspect is how this will affect the international community? eg Internation sourced traffic destined for US Based data-centres and even for transient traffic that crossing US soil, Japan/NZ/Australia traffic going to Europe...

    Will it break the Internet, not a chance... but it may change how and where traffic is trunked around the world globally...
