#3255840 FCC's "Net Neutrality" introduced to highly regulate the internet

Posted by tight lines on 26 February 2015 - 08:17 PM

this is why i'm not impressed with anything you or pstall have brought to the table.  ecu posted an article that is, so far, the only glimmer of light in this topic when it comes to discussing actual technical problems with net neutrality.


this is ideological squabbling.  you're opposed to it because you saw "government" and "regulations" and made a series of assumptions.  also the number of people repeatedly referring to it as a "bill"

My (as you refer to them) assumptions are based on my experience working in a federally regulated industry for a few years. Having dealt with the paperwork, and procedures tailored to track compliance with said regulations, I understand how it is a much larger task for smaller companies to survive in these industries. It is generally a much larger burden on smaller companies as a percentage of their operating costs. My issues are that the "cure" is going to be worse than the "disease".


Ps the part of the conversation I was originallly addressing (the near monopolistic ISP situations in many areas) are actually often caused by government intervention, I would much rather see a legislative approach that more limited in scope and much more transparent.

#3176313 Cam's ankle

Posted by tight lines on 03 January 2015 - 11:58 PM

I think its safe to say cam will be sore tomorrow. Its probably safe to say he will be on the injury report this week. I also think its safe to say barring totally unexpected circumstances cam will play next week.

Half a game above .500

#3100813 Got a raise that I have been negotiating on for a while...may buy a Jeep

The newer version of the inline 6 is an exceptionally reliable engine. The 4.0 version intro'd in 1991 and used until about 2000 (not sure of the last year), not so much...

The 4.0 inline 6 debuted in 1987 and is one of the most reliable engines ever built, they frequently make it past 300k miles. 

#3061828 TD laying Jimmy Graham the fcuk out last night

Posted by tight lines on 31 October 2014 - 09:48 PM

Im not sure why anybody thinks that was a cheap shot. Jimmy Graham is the checkdown receiver on this play, if you watch the wide view Davis commits to this hit before brees throws the pass elsewhere. TD is simply doing a textbook version of jamming a receiver. Maybe some of the panthers corners should take lessons.


#3040591 UNC Academic Scandal

Posted by tight lines on 24 October 2014 - 11:03 PM

  This is a half mile worse then Penn States issue because it was known about in all areas and all sports and just like a liberal - was thought to help a student by giving to them.



Are you really going to go there? Do you honestly believe that even the worst possible academic impropriety could possibly compare to covering for a child rapist? 

#3016641 CJ

Posted by tight lines on 12 October 2014 - 05:11 PM

Its kind of funny to me that this thread pops up after what was probably CJs best game of the year so far. He has been playing through injury, but he actually looked better today. 3 tackles, 2 tackles for loss, a sack, and a QB hit.

#3010807 UNC @ #6 Notre Dame

Posted by tight lines on 11 October 2014 - 09:50 PM

The lack of defense and no one questioning Fedora for ignoring it for at least two seasons now had me give up on the season about two weeks ago.

When it comes to my school, I want a new coach or I'll just wait for basketball season, lol.

I dont think hes so much ignored the defense as much as theres only so much you can do while installing a new offense and defense while being 5 scholarships short per year. Im honestly looking at year 5 as Fedoras prove it year.

#2966933 Gameday Menu

I am putting some wings in the smoker momentarily will be trying my hand at smo-fried wings (smoked, then fried to crisp skin) with some honey chipotle wing sauce I have concocted this morning. The sauce is more chipotle than honey.

#2961182 ESPN is totally disrespecting our organization

And apparently according to them the 6th amendment to the US Constitution is merely a legal technicality.

#2942075 Around the Horn called for Hardy's suspension

Posted by tight lines on 10 September 2014 - 07:04 PM

Rice hasn't been convicted in a trial either

He took a pretrial deal which is in essence pleading guilty.

#2935361 panthers franchise first today

Posted by tight lines on 07 September 2014 - 09:21 PM

I thought this was interesting.

Today is the first time in franchise history that we have won on opening day after a winning season.

on the subject of Deangelo, was I the only one that thought he looked to be running "angry" today?

#2825646 Half of Germany's Electricity in June Provided by Solar

Posted by tight lines on 20 June 2014 - 12:15 PM

What is the point of this post other than to move the goalpost back another 10 yards?

Sent from my iPhone using Carolina

My point was exactly as stated that the title was misleading. Germany likely produced more along the lines of 10% of its electricity in June with solar power not half. They produced half their electricity with solar for about an hour on one of the days in june. Im not moving any goalpost. It is an impressive feat, but grossly misstating it doesnt help anything. It only makes unrealistic expectations. At the moment solar power is a great way to add capacity for peak usage hours. which happen to be during daylight hours. Until energy storage solutions take some big strides it is not a replacement for electric genearation that can generate consistant power output 24 hours a day.
