  1. I feel your pain! I am a former Wildblue user!
  2. My heart bleeds for you lol. *I've got the worlds smallest violin playing the worlds saddest song* lol! I pay $40 a month for 4/4 and that is the maximum package! Booooo Hiss!!!
  3. I hear that these are where it's at nowadays. Go ahead and have a look. http://www.amazon.com/Hello-Kitty-Jeweled-Earbud-Headphones/dp/B001MTWZR4/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=electronics&qid=1270183847&sr=8-1
  4. I won't be getting one. Whatever they decide to quit telling me what I can and can not install then I might consider one. Until then I am eyeballing Google's new tablet that they are coming out with. --->
  5. http://movies.yahoo.com/news/movies.ap.org/some-see-racist-theme-alien-adventure-avatar-ap Wow is all I can say lol.
  6. These ping times are(sadly) why if somebody ask me which satellite provider to use I tell them to go with Hughesnet. Wildblue used to put those ping times to shame until they implemented their traffic shaping technology at the end of 06 I think. Now I do good if I can get a ping to go as low as 1053ms.
  7. I know someone that is on Spaceway 3(Hughesnet) and I can honestly say that browsing feels much snappier on it than Anik F2(Wildblue). I would switch over, but I don't want to be under contract if something better comes along. I am running contract free with Wildblue right now. Of course I am only occasionally on Wildblue. My parents have it at their house. Thankfully I have Embarq DSL at my apartment.
  8.

  9. I think we should do a psych experiment. We need to make it to where you can give yourself karma and make it so that there is no time limit between each karma point. Then we will see how long it takes for Shugs to stop clicking the button. *3 years later* Shugs stop clicking that damn button! Shugs: Never!!!
  10. Just once I would like to come on this site and see a normal post... Nah no I wouldn't...Continue on lol...
  11. You might want to check out this program ---> http://www.laplink.com/pcmover I have not used it personally, but it is something I cam across whenever I was moving from Vista to 7. Unfortunately it wasn't compatible at the time that I looked or I probably would have tried it.
  12. I get it for free since I am a CIS major . I get free access to MSDNAA, which has Windows 7 Pro free of charge. If only I knew about this whenever I went to Windows 7! I had to reinstall everything because you can't upgrade from Vista Home Premium to 7 Pro.(I was probably better off doing a clean install anyway though)
  13. "* Enable service on a par with DSL and cable" This is the kind of statements that angers me. This is NEVER going to happen with a high orbit satellite. Not unless someone figures out how to transmit radio waves faster than the speed of light. Satellite can not and will not ever compete with DSL or cable.(Unless it is some kind of MUCH lower orbiting satellite) Also if Viasat wants those satisfaction ratings to go up, then they need to find a traffic shaping technology that doesn't make the already atrocious satellite latency 2-4x what it should be.

  14. To each his own I guess. It has been rock solid for me. It might have been a little rough before SP1, but since then it has been smooth sailing for me. Either way though it is irrelevant now because Windows 7 is going to be great.
  15. Personally I think that the internet WAAAAY over exaggerated Vistas problems. The problem with Vista is the hardware was not caught up with the software yet when it came out. I would NEVER consider going back to XP after using Vista. I can't even remember the last time my computer crashed with Vista.
  16. Windows 7 is going to be their smoothest and most stable release to date IMO. I ran the Vista beta and it was pretty much unusable. Windows 7 on the other hand was already better than Vista and probably could have been released at Beta 1 and there wouldn't have been any complaints. It was a whole world of difference from the Vista beta. Granted Vista is an excellent OS now Windows 7 is going to be even better.
  17. I have been using Windows new Mesh system. Sync sounds a lot like it, but I haven't tried it. I know that Mesh also allows remote desktop from any web browser which can come in handy. Also that onlinestorage site says that it is $19 not $10.(Of course it might have went up from the time that you posted) I must say it all sounds good, but the site doesn't look very professional. Which doesn't necessarily mean it is a bad product. Just something that I tend to notice.
  18. Ok well maybe these animals favor you more.
  19. How did you manage to get a picture of Shugs as your avatar? I didn't know a camera could survive that kind of abuse! Lol the sad thing about that video is that is really how most of the comments are!
  20. Oh contraire...I could read it just fine....I just couldn't comprehend it. lol
  21. LOL! Woops! BTW Damn you Coknuck! Every time I read one of your post I try to swat the damn bug off my screen lol.
  22. I am running Windows 7 on my netbook(Samsung NC10) which has 1GB of RAM and the atom processor and it runs like a champ.

    Iphone 3g

    I saw a video where someone dunked it in fruit loops and then washed it off in the sink and it still worked. So I think it is pretty much waterproof.
  24. I put it in the correct corner. Like I say it used to work just fine. I can't imagine what could be causing it. I am doing everything the same as I was when it was working correctly as far as I know.
