I was, am now and ALWAYS will be a SATISFIED Comcast public relations employee. It's just too bad that so many of you are too busy hand-wringing and shrieking to actually ENJOY your otherwise God-forsaken lives.
There, I corrected your statement for honesty.
Only a Comcast employee would think that the legions of people who have reported problems with the company are "stupid" and "hand-wringing."
What will CBS and the other major networks want next, an inability to fast-forward or jump forward 30 seconds at a time?
It certainly seems that they want it both ways -- that we are required to watch advertisements AND pay for the right to do so. Or not at all, and at the rate they are going, I'll be choosing that. Really, I think I could do without crime procedurals, slanted journalism and half-wit comedies that trade in insulting stereotypes.
Wireless meshes are impractical to implement and easily broken into by the spooks as well. Keep in mind one of the recent revelations about the only part of government that actually listens to the people (the NSA) is that they can eavesdrop on a standard consumer wireless router from eight miles away. That makes any wireless mesh a house of cards that falls fairly easil5y.
