The Great SrH : (12 July 2019 - 12:23 pm) Ahh sorry - we think it was suicide!
DxWo : (08 July 2019 - 01:30 am) Hey SrH, no Phenomenal TJ, the one who committed suicide .. what did he do? :(
The Great SrH : (07 July 2019 - 09:31 pm) Hey guys! Dx, I think you’re thinking Tj Da Dj?
DxWo : (01 July 2019 - 09:48 pm) LMD how did TJ go? :(
DxWo : (28 June 2019 - 02:41 am) Wow this place is still here? :)
KCC : (18 June 2019 - 02:24 am) Phenomenal TJ? I probably hadn't spoken to him in like 7 or 8 years at this point. What a fucking shame :(
Jeremy : (09 June 2019 - 03:41 pm) Oh wow... that's terrible. He was one of those guys who I didn't interface too much with, but I always knew who he was. Tough to take news like that. Hope you lot are well, really do
LMD : (08 June 2019 - 07:31 am) Yeah, it was suicide. There were 2 posts around the day of talking about it and how he did it. Lots of people talking about his mental health issues and depression. Admittedly, he and I had a falling out years ago so I hadn't really spoken to him, so no idea what he was going through nor could I even begin to guess. :\
The Great SrH : (02 June 2019 - 08:18 pm) News*
The Great SrH : (02 June 2019 - 08:18 pm) Oh shit that’s sad. I looked him up and had a read through. Looked like he was struggling with mental health so my guess is suicide. Awful need tho!
Jeremy : (02 June 2019 - 03:34 pm) I don't know exactly, but his facebook page is now a "Remembering" page. No other context that I see, but it includes a disclaimer/notice from Facebook at the top of the page about his page being a memorialized account :(
The Great SrH : (31 May 2019 - 08:41 pm) What happened?
Jeremy : (29 May 2019 - 05:22 am) :( :( :( I just looked on Facebook... do we know what happened? :wub: yall
Jeremy : (29 May 2019 - 05:18 am) Wait... no I didn't see :( Dare I ask?
LMD : (09 May 2019 - 05:14 am) So uh, you guys see the news about TJ? Rough stuff. Just wanted to pop in and tell you I :wub: you guys. (Well at least most of you. :shifty:)

Google Fiber is the fastest broadband internet provider in the US, but according to the Chocolate Factory's CFO Patrick Pichette, its 1Gbps connection speeds are going to increase ten-fold.

 

Pichette told the Goldman Sachs Technology and Internet conference that the firm is actively developing the equipment to pump 10Gbps of data into homes and offices on its network and will deploy it faster than people expect.

 

"That's where the world is going. It's going to happen," Pichette said, USA Today reports. Originally, the plan had been to roll this out in a decade but "why wouldn't we make it available in three years? That's what we're working on. There's no need to wait," he added.

 

...

 

When asked if Google was planning other roll-outs for fiber, Pinchette refused to be drawn. "Stay tuned," he told the conference. ®

 

 

Source: The Register via Reddit

 

 

TL, DR Version of Below: Google is going to try and increase Fiber speed to 10Gbps in 3 years, it'll be good for everyone because it'll force ATT/Comcast/etc... hands. 

 

Long Version Rant:

 

In case you didn't know, I'm a firm believer that America is being screwed by the legalized monopoly system that is our telecom system. ISP's are cable companies, Cable Companies are Telephone companies, it's ridiculous to me they are allowed to do this. On top of that they've worked hard to shut down Google Fiber and has a lobby that works with states to limit or block the rollout of city or county run Fiber networks. 

 

 

So to hear Google say that they plan to get their speeds up to as much as 10Gbps, that's like a little angel saying to me that soon, Comcast and ATT and their friends will have no sand left to bury their heads in, people are not going to be happy to keep paying the same for  20mbs on throttled streaming connections in the future and caps will have to go too to make room for 4K and 60GB downloaded games when Google if not blocked can come to town and destroy that. 

 

 

Grr... /EndRant
