dentistry and cable bandwidth caps [Apr. 1st, 2009|03:56 pm]

I had some fillings done today. Anyone know why the anesthetic they give you makes your heart race? He didn't remind me of that this time (sadly I've been there enough that I should know this going in) and it freaked me out. Not a pleasant feeling.

Time Warner might be capping bandwidth in the Austin/San Antonio area. (the company responds) This is very bad and if they go this route we might have to look into AT&T U-Verse or something.

Looks like that alternative may not end up being open: http://www.dslreports.com/shownews/99389

Yuck. I guess I'm sure glad we don't live in Beaumont though...

Yeah, except we will be soon enough, I'm sure.

I don't get it. TV networks are finally in a position to recoup advertising dollars lost because of Tivo by providing video on their own websites with ads that can't be easily skipped. Now they'd rather have people go back to the Tivo and skip commercials instead of visiting their websites? If I were ABC or Fox I would not be happy with Time Warner on this issue.

I've been wanting to ditch TW for a while, and this might push me over the edge.
