    @keita We have a few direct cables that go via Guam.

      Can you believe it? I'm still fixing this same bug with our shitty, shitty pagination controller.

        @keita More than doubly as bad to the US, at least. I see average RTT around 350ms quite regularly.

          @keita Everything is slow beyond comprehension. :(

            I think "Witch House" is a bit of a pisstake.

              @keita Above ten megabits per second, latency is the limiting factor in nearly all cases. (So sayeth a report I read once and will link you to when I get back to my computer.)

                @lechindianer I reckon a bunch of the cons on the iPhone side might not be cons. What's Bluetooth? I don't think the iPhone is any more of a lifestyle product than an android device. And hey, you can easily remove Apple maps and replace them with Google.

                  @keita @jws Oldschool! (Seriously, RFID cards are the shit. Gotta get those over there. :P)

                    @keita Well, cynical as it might be, it’s good to see them making a song and dance about an open source effort.

                      @jws And by “studies” I mean “contemptuous culture commentators who fancy themselves as economists waving their index fingers around in the air.”

                        @jws But most studies lump me in with kids born this side of 2000 — who’ll never have a concept of what it was like not to have an iPhone. It’s a ridiculous definition for a generation.

                          @jws I’m definitely not a millennial. My childhood is a decidedly pre-internet, pre-connected experience. I remember using bank books and my parents finally being issued magstripe bank cards. VHS arrived mid-late 90s for us.

                            It is a bit weird having commercial office internet that is only half as fast as the internet I get at home. But seriously, I don’t know what to do with 500mbps fibre, let alone 1Gbps fibre.

                              Finally! After a month of tethering, internet for our office. And actually, over wireless, that’s pretty decent. [files.app.net]

                                @akulbe What a piece of garbage that app is.

                                  @feorlen That’s really disgusting.

                                    North Carolina wants $500k from state disaster fund to defend HB2. So actual natural disasters don't need the money, but persecuting trans people for using bathrooms does? http://www.the-dispatch.com/article/20160630/APN/306309794/article86890392.html
