Another week, another portrait. This week’s model was surprisingly challenging, getting his symmetry was eluding me. It was a beautiful day and I could smell my neighbor’s campfire and hear them playing with the dogs…so I cut this one short and went over to Margaritaville :D

This one feels similar to the school's style, so I'm pretty happy with it despite it being incomplete. They've got a lot of tricks I'm trying to pick up.

I watched the HBO trailer, looks good. I'll wait for the whole thing to be released, then give it a look.

Watched the first two eps last night.  Very good, and just terrifying.

When I had Uverse dsl AT&T was singularly useless once it started ping-spikes/disco's. They never did replace the faulty line, told me to suck it up that I wasn't guaranteed connection stability. So back to Comcast it was.
They actually said something that fucking stupid? Jesus.

A lot of that width are the torpedo bulges they added to the ship.

"I am not fat, just big boned" Sure... (You are right of course)

Here is an earlier image that looks to be pre-buldge:



Also see:old-school lattice masts. By that the ship still should have had a total of 4 torpedo tubes (one each bow/stern port/starboard-side) but I cant see them.

Only if it leads into Sean Connery playing Draco in Dragonheart

Sounds like they'll need to send somebody out to find the part of the line that's damaged and repair/replace it.

I had a similar issue when I first moved into my current place with my Comcast line. There was a flaky wire between their cable distribution box and my place that had to be replaced. Took a few calls and trips before they figured out what was wrong/what to fix.

Well, ATT has actually surpassed Comcast on my shit-list. Modem fried last week, with all the nasty storms we had. I was out of power 36 hours, and the modem was (thankfully) the only casualty. I take a day off to let ATT come fix it (because fuck it, I had a stressful few days with no power, scrubbing out a fridge, sourcing a replacement for a glass shelf that shattered when cleaning out a fridge, etc).

So far I've had two tech visits (The first to replace the modem, the second because regular 1500ms latency spikes). Second tech replaces everything. Does everything on the list for "bad connection". Changes at the neighborhood box, upgrading me to the latest modem, tests everything). Of course, second tech doesn't know what "latency" means.

So I give it two days, still getting regular spikes of 1500ms latency. (And by "regular" I mean "every three or four seconds"). Call tech support again. This guy pings a few servers right from my router (ie, not involving my home network at all) and sees the same thing. 36ms sometimes, 1500 to 1800 others).

It's been elevated to their network team. It only took a second visit (and a second day taking time off) and an angry phone call to convince them that yes, the information I was giving them ("it's the goddamn latency, please fucking test that, PLEASE, it's not in my house. I checked that. It's somewhere between my modem your network") for them to actually test the fucking thing I asked them to test.

Hopefully it's something simple -- bad router configuration upstream, or some slightly damaged bit of hardware from the storm.

I don't want to go back to Comcast, but 1500ms latency is fucking unbearable.

That's a fantastic video. Incredibly explanatory and smart and interesting.
