@kfield: My favorite card (which works equally for both genders) is for your 50th birthday: It says "Happy Colonoscopy!"

And you wonder why they don't let you out very often LOL

@Antedeluvian...on my wife's 40th I found a card that said on the front "So you're turning 40?  But you're not going to be cranky and grumpy and otherwise and snappy, are you?"  Inside it said "Of course you can!  Old people are like that!!"

If I hadn't bought her a nice flowery lovey-dovey card as well, I don't think I would be here now....

Watching that video pulled me into the infinite time sink known as Vi Hart videos. The few that I were saw mathmatics based. Her voice at first convinced me that she was Myla Goldberg (author of the Bee Season and other novels) but it didn't take much "research" to quickly determine otherwise. OK, that was rambling. To the topic at hand, we certainly are throttled and I am convinced that Youtube is as throttled as anything. Not sure who is throttling, though. Is it Google or our ISP? It was interesting that as I was listening to the Vihart video, it stopped for a full 30 seconds. I happen to be the only one on line in our household... Mmmmm.... In fairness, I reduce my kiddies QOS on our router when someone is  being a bandwidth hogs.  I'll even throttle myself but it is at my own convenience... It's hard to blame Comcast, AT&T, and others for doing the same...

@Max....it's an excellent video.  How an ISP cannot be classed as a telecomm carrier I don't know.  Seems the Australian Government does not have a monopoly on stupidity as I thought (not really, I'm not that dumb :-)  If they want to be classed as information services, let them be that and hit them as accessories to every child porn vendor and money-laundering scam.  They'll soon change their tune.

Nice to see that Australia is in the vanguard of high speed wireless again. (Didn't someone from CSIRO invent Wifi?)

What a contrast with our government.  The previous mob had a "National Broadband Network" rolling out that would have seen a world class fibre to the home network for most people in built-up areas.   The current government is scaling this back to "fibre to the node" and using the crappy old copper wires for the last mile - giving speeds barely better than we have now.

I was recently in my old home of Zimbabwe - power cuts, no water, no streetlights.... but guess what they are doing?  Fibre to the home if you want it.  You gotta wonder about our politicians.....

@max Back to my original point... This company seems to be on the right track. http://www.csiro.au/Outcomes/ICT-and-Services/building-wireless-communications-links.aspx

@max I was very happy to call mine my 57th birthday. I'm proud to be a granddad and would never want to relive those previous years. Although I would love to get my hands on a functioning TI 990 minicomputer, the system that I cut my teeth on back in the early '80s.

@betajet: ...so I had to think about it: "2B or not 2B, that was the question".

I'm too young for all this LOL
