  1. Mila would because of the sorting algorithm of mortality.
  2. I want something Fallout related. But I can't come up with anything other than "Do you like the Fallout rp?" with two variations of yes as the options.
  3. As long as it doesn't happen in the morning or before noon. Seeing as how I've established that Garret is a night person and has a weird sleep cycle.
  4. I think we also discussed Garret being in on a corner.
  5. I found this video on the likelyhood on why there's no new Obsidian Fallout.
  6. Funny. That was the gif I was looking to use next time I felt I needed to remind you.
  7. I guess this comes down if you want to believe the ISPs' words or not. I wouldn't but that is up to each one of us. On another note: @BigBossBalrog
  8. It doesn't allow bigger tech companies to gain an upper hand on smaller companies. How would NN do that? As the ISPs can't discriminate against any data, everyone is playing on the same level when it comes to speed and access. While I'm not expert on ISP infrastructure, I'm pretty sure you must already have a big bag of money to build said infrastructure to start an ISP. In which case you should already be able to pay a lawyer to make sure you're abiding the regulations.
  9. I don't see how not being able to discriminate data favors big monopolies. It actually makes so big companies can't pay ISPs to throttle startup competitors or otherwise give themselves a major edge.
  10. So why repeal net neutrality instead of only the regulations against new ISPs and new technology? As BT points out NN protects smaller companies that are reliant on the internet.
  11. Is net neutrality the thing that prevents other companies from starting up new ISPs or is it some other part of the regulation that prevents that? Most of my courses are mostly based on math, logic and fixed standards. Not much to argue or disagree over.
  12. I've seen signs on my university of what I feel is politicized courses, but they're so far very few and in the periphery. I remember one small course about sustainable design that however was obligatory. While most agreed it was important to some degree, no one really saw it as important to our education and thus it was one of the most impopular courses among us students.
  13. They are for the most part as long as you avoid certain subjects. Though there is a creeping fear for politicization of the higher educations like in the US.
  14. The article wasn't about popular opinion. I'm pretty sure most people in my country don't know what net neutralitet is. The two interviewed were a scientist at one of our universities and a person from our telecommunication branch of our government. I linked it mostly because I thought the person from the university would allow for a fairly neutral, outside look on the whole debate.
  15. I read them. Don't really see the logic behind them. Net neutrality in essence only means that ISP can't discriminate data on the internet without good cause. I don't see how removing it would cause anyone to start up an ISP to compete with the current ones. That would rather be a question of infrastructure to set up the actual wires for the network. Removing it would instead allow ISPs to throttle and speed up the data transfer for selective sites for payment. Amazon could for example pay ISPs to throttle their competitors, or be forced to pay to not get throttled. Also the change is pushed by a guy that was formerly employed by one of your big ISPs. It's also lobbied by the ISPs. Logic dictates that you wont lobby millions of dollars for something that will have negative consequences for you. The ISPs getting more competition would of course be bad for them as they will lose market shares. So I don't see them lobby for this if it meant more competition for them.
