    Fun isnt it??

    My ISP tripled Bandwidth and raised caps 1/3..400gig..
    UNLIMITED* is the new FREE*

    Anyone that dont understand BANDWIDTH, look up QOS...
    you can have the best bandwidth, and still get CRAP for Quality of service..

    What I find fun in all this, is BUSINESS TIMES, where during the Day you are at 1/2 speed, because corps NEED the bandwidth?? Which means they are back to the OLD phone service tricks..

    Most of the problems tend to be HIGH quality services..
    60fps HD from youtube
    And many more..
    A small family can hit the cap so fast..its stupid.

    They are NOT selling Bandwidth, they are selling a CAP..
    Who remembers cellphones going threw this??

    Lets see...
    Price of flash drives is CHEAP AS HELL..
    Having a system to AUTO COPY DATA ON FLASH? Easy, just insert CODE of person, and dates..
    ERASE drive...INSERT again the next day..

    HD 2-3 terabyte drive..about 62-16 gig recordings per gig..
    Warns when nearing capacity..
    CHECKS FLASH for errors, and warns of BAD flash drive.
    CHECKS recording for SIZE, compare that recording is equal to what a DAY(8+ hours is recorded)
    WARNS if DAY on drive is tampered, changed, SHORT...

    So, whats the problem??

    Turning the USA into a global market

    Can someone ask..
    When did these folks get out of there Gold and Glass houses..LAST..
    Were these folks all born and raised, and STILL living in the Florida everglades??
    Can someone ask these folks to come DOWN off their HIGH mountain, and learn the language??
    Please open the WINDOWS and get some fresh air into their heads...That helium is getting abit THICK..

    Encryption/data compression is in Every Facet, of our lives.. From your CD/DVD/BR to Phones, data communications, Drones, DRM, computer programs, Car computers....
    This is like having a police force that only speaks Turkish, and everyone has to change How they speak, because they cant understand it..we need SMARTER COPS..

    Its interesting..
    HOW much does the internet cost?
    how much do they really need to keep things updated, peer to peer. NOT to homes, but to each segment of servers out there...
    The odds are, the Big companies dont OWN much of the server farms or infrastructure. They OWN/Control the ISP and 'to the home' connections.

    They dont OWN the server farms, the DATA POINTS that were wonder around..They are a Traffic cop.

    So, what are you paying for?
    Old obsolete tech thats being PUSHED to its Max to keep up with THEIR promises. They dont want to upgrade what they have, until its paid for, 1000 times over...
    WE pay more for the Boss's, and tech support(that cant do much) and a BUNCH of bill collectors...then we do for the services themselves.
    Do it this way..GOTO the ISP site, and look around. Do they link to services they have ON THE NET?? very little is there except adverts for TV and Phone services.

    They might as well be the power company...The power companies dont OWN much of the power generation facilities.. They just Collect/pay cheap prices, and OVER charge you, to get it to your house.. IT WAS CHEAP before they privatized it, and placed it on the stock market..

    i know how to fix this

    How about...
    USA money has to STAY in the USA..
    Tall all banks OUTSIDE the USA, that any transactions FROM the USA can be Kept by those banks..
    Except where they are concerned with purchases of good to be Sent to the USA..

    no one understands.

    What did it take for OLD phones to get the protections they HAVE...
    Understand the FUN had before you COULD not randomly Tape, phone calls..

    FEW to NONE of the laws pertain to WIRELESS...
    You might as well get a CB radio and broadcast to 20 miles around you,...

  • Apr 1st, 2016 @ 2:35pm

    I thought

    Isnt there a law, about circumventing, hardware and software..
    OR is the Gov. ABOVE THE LAW..

  • Mar 31st, 2016 @ 1:17pm

    how about a study..

    "Does ISDS, form better competition?"

    "Does ISDS, give consumers a chance?"

    "corporate Sovereignty and product quality?"

    "Corporate Sovereignty and your rights, State vs Corps, your rights vs theirs."

    would be a service like 911..or a bypass signal to wifi..
    Then add a tracking device to the unit that is not removable..
    as soon as its more then 100 feet away, it starts a Tracking signal..
    A Lowfi signal, can reach miles, easily..and you could even use a common radio to track it..

    Learn from the BEST and Screw the rest..
    Has anyone gotten the idea, that the USA corps are jumping into the rest of the world, and REGULATING THINGS??

    LETS buy up all the rights to this nations videos, MAYBE we can make MORE MONEY suing everyone that watches it..

  • Mar 30th, 2016 @ 2:18pm

    Huh?? WHAT??

    "It would be better served if billions of dollars in free media came with serious accountability, especially when politicians issue unworkable plans or make promises they can’t keep."

    FREE MEDIA?? billion dollar FREE MEDIA?? MEDIA accountability??(PAID MEDIA accountability)...
    UNWORKABLE PLANS??(get someone in there that has MORE knowledge then Politics)
    ANd tons more..

    "Whether it was exposing the horrors of lynching, to busting the oil trusts, to uncovering Watergate, your work has always been essential to that endeavor, and that work has never been easy. And let's face it, in today’s unprecedented change in your industry, the job has gotten tougher."

    2 words..WHISTLE BLOWERS..1 word JAIL..

    I cant go on...this is to silly.

    Let me ask..HOW can a democracy BE a democracy when we are NOT TOLD what is going on? HOW can we judge WHO to listen to and vote for, If we are FED BS, and Kept int he dark??
    FIRE them all(they are OUR EMPLOYEES) and hire new ones..
    HIRE ones that have never been in office, and have NEVER had family in office..

    WHO is old enough..

    To remember when Newspapers were MOSTLY news..
    When a comic book, was MOSTLY comics, not adverts every other page.
    HOW about Billboards?? ALL OVER the place..and when you entered a city, you could hardly see anything else..
    Whats next?
    Adverts in our bibles?

    I get LESS CRAP on Anima sites..and porn sites..

  • Mar 29th, 2016 @ 1:27pm


    Iv been to sites, with my computer, at 80-150 mbps, and the page takes about 5 seconds to display, with all the adverts..

    With NoScript..Iv looked at the scripts from a site...A FULL page of them, then allowed the site ONLY, and new ones popped up.. Allow a few safe ones, that I KNOW..and MORE pop up..and STILL there are TONS of scripts waiting to be loaded..

    Even with my HOME account, there is a CAP..

    Goto YOUTUBE with 60fps, HD...the amounts of data are HUGE..
    Want to watch a MOVIE on netflix, or any other service?? EAT IT UP.. And those sites are Pretty good at limits Adverts.

    Iv suggested to sites,to MAKE the advert PARt of their site..STRIP the JS, and other parts, and just a LINK to the site..
    I WISH there was a Addon, that would put a TAG/NOTE on the SCRIPTS loaded on my machine and tell me WHO SENT IT..a script tracker.
    I would also like a LAW/regulation that SAYS.."a SITe is responsible for the CRAP transferred to a consumers system.."

    Lets see...
    Editing all searches from finding ANY persons name for 1 country..
    This could be Spectacular..
    Who can see, that when ANYONE in france searches up ANY person, they find NOTHING..
    No wiki's
    No Sites that mention a rulers names..
    NO NEWSPAPERS that mention ANYONE..
    You cant even search for yourself..

    NOW lets think about state, county, federal records listing...NONE ARE LISTED because that have certain, and everyone's NAMES...

    PARTY HARD are all invisible..
    NOW you have to goto another country to find any info on where you live..

    Interesting topic

    But WHO do they listen to..
    CORPS love to prove themselves right, Ask the drug companies how they do it..
    200 experiments, 10 show it MIGHT do something, 190 Fail..
    The drug corp only shows the ones that worked..

    MOST people elected to office, ARNT super smart people. They have enough problems understanding economics, forget about HOW studies/experiments and Logic work..

    Over many years of using computers..
    Over all the past Claims in movies and by the Gov, and telco..that everything was being hacked..

    There is allot of work, placed in MOST software to protect devices from hacking, FOR A REASON..
    Hardware can be defeated, Most times...because of 1 fact, Customer @#$@ things up and there has to be a way to reset the device, so it can be USED again.
    A hardware device that could NOT be reset, would be a BRICK if someone forget a password..

    Software always has FLAWS..If you could protect Software from every form of hacking, you would have a BLOATED SLOW piece of garbage.. The developers place code in it for testing and running around a game to see/do and do/fix STUFF, but SELDOM remove this code. And if they did, it would make it HARDER to fix/update a game or program..

    THERE ARE tricks...using augmented hardware with Good software, can protect very well, until someone figures it out.. Do not THINK, you are smarter then the person NEXT DOOR.. THINGS have to change on a regular basis to keep the system SAFE..

    DONT even think about DRM..very little of it has ever worked.

  • Mar 10th, 2016 @ 9:38pm

    how about a test....

    uSE A clean install, with no protections..
    NOT even MS protections..

    Then Got THEIR SITES..

    Then Run ADW..and see whats been installed on the system..

    You dont even need to click their sites..JUST COME HERE, and see if BOTS are installed from 3rd party adverts..

    ITS NOT THE ADVERTS...I dont Mind adverts..
    I MIND BOTS/Malware/Vireus/trackers/.. being placed on my machine and I didnt even got the site..
    THEN I goto a site and Im inundated with MORE 3rd party crap.

    The fun part is Proving some Crap killed infected your machine..and What liability a SITE HAS, or an Advertiser..
    You know they have to have Identifiers in them..but the Advert company wont tell you anything..

    Iv asked Browser makers to TAG the adverts when they get installed, so I can TRACK the web site that installed it.

    1 bot on a computer can track you all over the net, ID the items you buy, insert THEIR own ad's and Popups..
    Say, I bought a PART on Amazon, then Im getting TONS of popup for more parts for what I ALREADY BOUGHT...I dont need any more parts..Even Amazon, every time I go back, ASKS me to buy another part..
    And that is 1 BOT, from 1 company...what happens with 2-3-4...10..ALL vying to sell me CRAP..
    ITS our RIGHT, to cut the spam..
    This is as bad as the OLD mail system and getting a MAIL BOX, full of crap every day of the year..and it aint even xmas..

  • Mar 10th, 2016 @ 1:23pm


    Why not talk to the sites,
    and ask 1 question..
    IF they will be liable for any corruption/infection placed on a person machine, IF' we allow their site..

    I dont mind sites that have THEIR OWN ADVERTS..not much.
    but being responsible for a 3rd party advert??
    That the Site hasnt Scanned for infections/redirects/malware??

    thry could STRIP{ the advert, and make it part of their site, Stripping the SCRIPTS and stuff out that are NOT NEEDED..

    But FEW sites will do anything.

  • Mar 7th, 2016 @ 12:01pm

    Lets do it..

    Lets walk into the parliament..
    And decrypt all their phones and tablets..
    LETS bring in a List of every person they have called in the last year..

    WHAT and WHICH encryption do you want to do/look at/decrypt??
    The Phone, the Programs...
    Even if you COULD get the Phone the customer Could of placed their OWN PROTECTIONS..


  • Mar 6th, 2016 @ 1:47pm


    WHAT is government advantage??
    10 Employees(boss's) on top Each making wage Equal to the 100 people doing the work for the company..

    Gov. employees, that get GREAT benefits, and a decent wage, and STILL under cut Corp wages and benefits??

    WHO here is old enough to remember when State and fed, controlled UTILITIES, and you could afford them?? EVEN if you were Poor..
