Congats to Brandon and Kate, who met on ESPN's Big Ten blog comments section, ended up meeting IRL, and got married on last weekend (the bye weekend, of course).
Comcast won a decision by the US Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia in its case with the FCC over net neutrality. Essentially, the FCC was told it didn't have the authority to tell Comcast that it couldn't slow BitTorrent use.
However, the case has much larger implications, including use of other high bandwidth sites like Hulu and YouTube and larger end users of bandwidth.
Maybe this will spur the Net Neutrality Act...
So I get online bright and early before when tickets go on sale at 10am. At 9:55ish I get thrown in a virtual waiting room. Cool, seems like I'm on my way.
So after getting through the virtual waiting room I punch in what I want: 4 tickets in the upper reserve box.
Cool, I get the page that says to type in the weird words so it seems like I'm good. Then suddenly the tickets are gone, apparently I lost out on step before they are reserved. Since I keep getting thrown into the virtual waiting room where every 30 second something refreshes to tell me that the request is unavailable.
Then again I get to the entering the words in. I punch the words in, hopeful I've finally got my tickets. No dice, they disappear.
And now they say that tickets aren't available in my quantity. So, the place isn't sold out. Twice I get to the point where I'm about to get tickets, then boom. Nope.
Screw all the people that buy tickets and go right to stub hub to re-sell them. One of two things should happen: Either stub hub should be illegal or teams should go back to making people wait in line for opening day (at minimum). At least that way real fans will get to buy the tickets.
Let me apologize up front for either asking a question that has already been answered or not searching effectively. I am on my Blackberry and so I am taking the lazy way out.
I will be in a location tomorrow without TV access. I will only have my laptop and a 3G card. Is it possible to stream a football game with a relatively low bandwidth connection?
If so what recommendations for where to stream the game? I have had people tell me about JustinTV.com.
Again, sorry for any redundancy. Thanks for your help.
Does anyone else wonder how this commercial can honestly still be on the ESPN network? Did FinallyFast.com pay ESPN that much? I am truly afraid that it will never leave.
I have heard that if you download the software, it will give you spyware. Which I find ridiculous, and quite humorous.
I used to laugh hysterically at the "My computer is going fast, finally! FinallyFast.com!"
It, now, has morphed in to anger.
