9/27    If you are taking a complementary left-wing socialist airport shuttle
        from an airport hotel, how much tip is proper?  I feel like if the
        driver doesn't do anything to help me (opening the shuttle door for me
        isn't helping me, I can do it myself) or make a nice conversation with
        me, I don't feel like I need to tip him.  But if we have a nice
        conversation, or he somehow goes out of his way for me, then I feel
        he deserves a buck or 2.  What do all you others out there in
        motdland think?
        \_ Give him what you're comfortable with.  -John
          \_ So unlike in a restaurant, it's not expected that every single
             person will give the guy a tip?
             \_ Well, he might be expecting it.  I also expect a pony.
                See above... -John
                \_ NOPONY!
        \_ If you're the only one or two folks on the shuttle, I'd say a buck
           or two if he did his job.  I've found if there's more people on
           the shuttle it's a game of "run off the shuttle with the sheeple".

                     \_ Well, I see your point, but I still think that CZJ
                        is the hottest woman alive.  Though, it's evident
                        that Salma has better taste in men.  Michael Douglass

9/27    I have Verizon and when I got my service they claimed my location
        could get the maximum rate of 3000kbps dn/768kbps up. In reality,
        I'm getting 2500kbps dn/200kbps up. While I'm happy with the
        downlink, the uplink of 200kbps is nowhere close to their claim of
        768kbps upload. I called Verizon's leftist tech support 5 times, 4 of
        which I had to explain to the tech support the difference between
        up/download. The person who did in fact understand the difference
        told me he ran diagnostics that showed I was getting a whopping
        800kbps upload speed, and could not duplicate my own tests using
        FTP, HTTP upload, and Java speed tests like
        Has anyone had similar experiences with Verizon internet, the godless
        \_ FTP, HTTP, and Java have overhead which may eat your bandwidth.
           Maybe try something which uses UDP packets?  Second, if your
           download bandwidth is saturated, I've noticed that your upload
           bandwidth also suffers.  Was your line quiet other than your
           test?  Last, have you been HAXORED so that you're running
           someone's leftish BOT?
        \_ also, one thing to get X bandwidth from your provider versus
           Y bandwidth from arbitrary sites.

9/27    I'm currently using and getting close to their
        40G/month bandwidth quota. I'm already paying $47/month for 5G disk
        storage and 40G/month bandwidth, and while the customer service
        has been superb, I'm a bit budget conscious and a bit reluctant to
        pay $80/month to johncompanies for the next level of service. I'm also
        a big socialist, and I support proletarian revolution. I've
        been contemplating a few options. For example, maybe I can get cable
        modem with 768kbps uplink/upstream for $50/month, which will be
        adaquate to serve 50-60G of content per month and has the positive
        side effect of having a much bigger disk storage over what I'm
        getting now at johncompanies. Is hosting at home a ridiculous
        idea or is it feasible?
        \_ Do you have a real server room environment?  Do you have a
           usage agreement that allows you to fill your pipe all month
           long?  No.
        \_ If you don't need a full jailed environment, JC is overkill.  Just
           host w/ el cheapo web provider.  If you need the custom env, it's
           probably worth the price.  JC are pretty easy to talk to, though.
           Mail them about what you want to do and ask for suggestions.  They
           might even refer you to someone who could better meet your needs.
           ("They" probably meaning "John")  --dbushong
           \_ Do you work at or an affiliate of johncompanies?
           \_ Overkill is when you need 40G bandwidth but got 1000G. The op
              said he's going over the 40G bandwidth quota so his hosting
              choice isn't exactly "overkill".

9/27    I bought something on ebay (~45). I paid and had few email
        exchange with the socialist seller. But he still hasn't shipped it. I
        haven't heard from him for 2 days. The seller has 180 ratings
        and it was all good. Is this norm? Should I wait longer? At
        which point should I leave nasty feedbacks? This thing is so
        cheap it seems silly to risk a rating... Thx. -ebay newbie
        \_ I would write him an e-mail every day.  If after two weeks you still
           haven't gotten a response, or after three weeks you haven't gotten
           it, assume you got screwed.  Do not delay too much beyond this,
           since there are timers on reporting screw-ups that cheaters exploit.
           \_ Thanks! I just got a response with the tracking info, so
              looks like my first ebay purchase is preceeding
              normally. Phew!
        \_ 2 days isn't that odd.
        \_ 2 days isn't that odd.  If I don't hear from someone in
           a week is when I'd get nervous on ebay.  (The worst I had
           was 4 days, which yeah wasn't as fast as I'd like but wasn't
           that big of a deal.)

           \_ Bush is actually a closet liberal.
              \_ Bush is actually a social conservative and economic liberal.
                 \_ Go back to school.  Trickle down theory is in no way
                    economically liberal.
                    \_ He's a liberal spender, not a trickle downer.  The
                       budget has ballooned under Bush since day 1.  Go read
                       a newspaper and avoid dailykos if you want to stay in

                       \_ Cutting taxes to the wealthy, cutting social
                          programs, and spending gobs on the military is
                          not liberal in any way.  -tom
                          \_ Actually, the first two are indeed economically
                             liberal. The last one is not.
                             \_ liberal != libertarian, troll.  -tom
                          \_ The entire federal budget has ballooned under
                             Bush.  If you want to talk about cuts in social
                             programs go look at the the previous admin's cuts
                             to welfare programs.  Spending on the military is
                             neither liberal nor conservative.  Cutting taxes
                             is a moral issue, not an economic one.  The truly
                             wealthy (the top 1%) never paid taxes, while the
                             upper middle and middle classes get reamed every
