  1. Opinions on this guitar/amp bundle?

    That guitar is totally fine. I've been playing a Squier Strat for years and it works fine for me, good to learn on. That amp really won't be good though. I'd encourage you to try and find the same or a similar guitar without the bundle, and get a nicer amp second hand.
  2. Rather late to the thread but *cough* Vivaldiisuperiortoallotherbrowsers *cough*
  3. Is there any sane argument against Net Neutrality?

    Besides companies who want to use its absence to screw you over, it's mostly people who are just anti-government regulation in all cases. I'm actually pretty conservative in that area, most of the time I think government restrictions on businesses are a bad thing. However the problem here is that many places have few or no choices for ISPs, which means no competition, and therein lies the problem. There are also those who argue that the restrictions don't do anything in the first place, but considering that Comcast, with a complete monopoly in my town, doesn't get to charge for individual services and create paid 'fast lanes' I don't see how that's accurate. Of course I haven't actually read through the legislation, same as most people.
  4. How to pronounce SATA?

    I used to say sah-ta, but I changed to say-ta because I say data like day-ta. And if you pronounce them differently you sound pretty dumb saying "molex to SATA lose all your data"
  5. New modem

    Yeah, which I worry about. Also we don't have cable TV from Comcast so it would be just the two.
  6. New modem

    Yeah I sure wish my parents would ditch their homes phones as well. But yeah I think the contractor probably saw that we have a cordless system and just did the lazy method.
  7. New modem

    My phone is directly connected to the modem. Should I be looking for another connection somewhere else as well?
  8. New modem

    Yeah the base on the one plugged into the modem is bigger than the others so that's probably the case. Will I have to worry about a customer line? Not sure what you mean there
  9. New modem

    I think the alarm does have a battery/cell backup. My main source of confusion right now is how everything is wired up in terms of the phones/alarm. There's a phone cable plugged into the phone port on the Comcast modem currently that seems to run the phones and alarm, because both go down when I unplug/restart the modem. But the house has several different home phones with their own charging station things. Should I assume that they're all wired together, and that it's as simple as unplugging that wire from the Comcast box and into the Ooma?
  10. New modem

    Ooma Telo, never heard of that but it looks really good actually. Do you just plug it into ethernet and go? And who are you paying the initial $40 and $3 a month? Edit: My parents are also running an alarm system through the phone line, will it cause any issues with that? Not having to deal with running the phone through Comcast would solve a lot of problems.
  11. New modem

    I mean my speeds aren't that good anyways... Also could you be more specific about how excellent my signal would have to be to run the phone and internet on separate modems, because that's looking like the only solution here. Wish my parents would just give up having a landline...
  12. New modem

    No prob. Also my parents have a landline phone running through the modem right now and I'm not seeing anything with phone line ports. That might be a problem...
  13. New modem

    Thanks. Cheap and simple, looks good. Do you know anything about the web UI/setup process?
  14. New modem

    Around a month ago my internet started randomly dropping out. I figured out that my Comcast-provided modem was randomly kicking itself in and out of "bridge mode" in which it acts as just a modem and doesn't use its built in router. I called in, they said this is a common issue that lots of units have (wtf?) and replaced it. Unsurprisingly the new one only took a couple weeks to start doing the same thing as of yesterday. It's completely random when it goes down and for how long. So I've decided I'm done with Comcast's shitty hardware and I'm just going to get my own modem. However I'm really not good at networking stuff in general and I've never set up a modem, so it scares me a little. So: What should I be looking for in a modem, and how much should I spend? Is there anything special I'll have to do on the ISP side to get it running, or do I just screw in the connection from outside and expect it to work? Anything else I should know setting up a modem, and good proper guides for doing so?
  15. Best insult you've heard in an online game?

    I often use "I hope your day is as pleasant as you" as a farewell to toxic people after a game
