AT&T Sucks. That is (not) all.

On Monday Morning, I woke up to the following friendly message on my iPhone (grandfathered into "unlimited" plan). I will be switching away from them and I will not be doing business with AT&T ever again if I can help it. I will also be taking as many of their customers with me as I can!"ATT Free Msg: Your data usage has reached 3GB this month. Using more than 3GB in future billing cycles will result in reduced speeds. You can use Wi-Fi to help avoid reduced speeds. Visit…See More

Trolls, Censorship, and TechHui Irony

This was originally intended (and submitted) as a comment to Marcus Sortijas's blog post about trolls writing nasty comments. Ironically, yet somewhat expectedly, he did not approve my words as a legitimate comment to his original post, and so my post did not get published. This makes everything even more strange and ironic, but that's ok. Please read on if you like that kind of stuff. If I were a grape-wanting…See More

"You'd think the threat punishment of being hit by a car would be enough for most people to pay attention when crossing the street.  If not, *BAM*... Natural Selection.  Please move to the shallow end and get out of the gene pool."

"I agree with Dan N. Its been frustrating at times, especially the April outage, but if you look at them over the 9 years since they launched AWS has been far more reliable than any in-house systems we've seen over the same period, not to…"

"Yeah, I did hear about that, but I think mine is a separate issue. They were having some major problems that resulted in outages for some large and prominent sites. It did not affect any of my instances. I'd say being locked out of one of my…"

"Thanks.  I haven't used any AWSes yet, so wasn't sure which were implied by SSH.  EBS got a lot of flack last month for breaking EC2."

What's going on with AWS?

I have been very enthusiastic and optimistic about AWS until recently. It seems like it's been problem after another for me recently, and on top of that there's very little support to help me with issues that I have no control over on my end. Most recently, one of my instances is all of a sudden no longer accepting my ssh keypair that was generated by AWS! What the heck? No SSH access, without warning or reason? I made NO changes to the server, and I tried to access from multiple remote…See More

Gadget ban clears council

Hawaii's politicians taking stupidity to a new level

 

Will hawaii outlaw holding cellphones, iPads, and other gadgets while crossing city streets?

 

Obviously, from the link title, you can tell I am biased on this one, but I still want to open this up for discussion and also raise awareness that some people are actually trying to push this law…
