Re: Dropped connection requires reboot

Yea, because the biggest cost of the tower is often getting fiber to the tower, especially in rural areas. Then you have terrain and trees... just picking a good spot for the tower requires some brains, then you have to be able to acquire said spot, then there are zoning and land permits, FCC permit...

While I think there is more life left in Coax than you think, I essentially agree with you. Most future cable tech is Fiber deep, with the next step beyond docsis 3.1 being fiber to the tap (every tap becomes a node) pushing out 25GHZ down the coax drop (most current cable systems are 750mhz to 1ghz...

Interesting concept, I would think the oil seals would need to be absolutely perfect on the top half and might be prone to problems stemming from containing the oil in what would normally be, upside down. I think a dual piston setup would work better in an upside down V - basically how they sit in a...

If you get a V6, get the biggest one you can, an overworked small v6 will suck as much gas as a big v8, and give you none of the performance, and a big v6 that doesn't have to work hard will end up being more efficient. (usually)

Re: Descent : Underground. Did anyone here knew about this?

The Descent name is owned by Interplay, but some of the specific assets (like the Pyro-GX, PTMC, and Dravis) are owned by Parallax, which is split between Outrage and Volition. So we have 3 asset holders who don't really play well together. The easiest way to get around that is to make a prequel. T...
