...and FTTH wins over both Cable and DSL, all the time, every time. :)

Maximum speed of an ADSL connection depends upon the distance between the modem (which is almost always at the customer prem) and the DSLAM (which is almost always at the central office).

AT&T U-Verse is basically just 20 Mbps DSL, but to overcome the speed-vs-distance limitation they've placed DSLAMS in big ugly huts in every neighborhood.

i've got fiber to the house and a dsl line from the cellar up into my flat.

its usual now over here that either big cable companies have huge boxes outside of the houses (1.8 x 2.5 x 0.4 m) which then contain the DSL terminations, or as in my case, tiny boxes in the cellar of each house (0.4 x .0.3 x 0.15 m)

Right. Here in Verizon-land when they run FiOS to a large building they typically use a MDU ONT such as the TelLabs 621, which can feed VDSL and/or Ethernet plus cable tv over coaxial cable. The idea is to re-use the building's existing telephone and television wiring while still providing wideband speeds close to FTTH.

They really ought to use lasers.  Well that and sharks (with the lasers on their heads) - aimed of course.

Who is everyone using for domain registry, these days? I've been with GoDaddy, but I'm unhappy with the pricing for .org addresses, so I'm open to less expensive options.

I've been using Network Solutions for one of my domains, and Dotster for the other. Last I checked, Dotster was cheaper than Network Solutions, but they weren't as inexpensive as GoDaddy. GoDaddy didn't strike me as being a reliable service provider.

When I had my two domains to renew last November, I asked this question, and went with Dotster as per Spell's recommendation. So far I've been happy.

I haven't had any technical or even customer service issues with GoDaddy...I'm just not liking the idea of paying $15-16/year for a domain that isn't geared for business.

If you host each domain name on GoDaddy you can use one hosting account and then everything underneith that one
domain. Each domain has its own address, etc.
I have several domain names all sitting under my main account.

+3 from dotster - happy since 2002. (penguinpackets.com).

They are a no pain solution to registration.  Once you are pass the confusing initial pages, you are good to go.  My daytime employer goes with the Canadian host (too-cows): http://www.tucows.com/

I have been liking the service over the last 5 years with Tucows as well as they are not cheap, but have been good to deal with.  They also have a phone service (not to prostitute myself too much, but if you want to save....)

Discount on sign up:

http://penguinpackets.com/~kelly/kblog/blog/01355922564

I get $25 cut (you do too.)

Cool service so far for me so far (and the best bit is the tracking if you want to know the billing mid month.).  No, I don't work for Ting, but I think it they do have good pricing, but I would love to hear about better pricing if you have it as I am cheap.

I've been using Dotster as well. I've had absolutely no problems with them.

I'm not hosting my domains there...only using them as a registrar. I host my own DNS/web sites, etc. on my systems at home.

This is very interesting. https://www.hamwan.org/

"A modern multi-megabit IP-based digital network for amateur radio use!"

I'm outside the "red" coverage area, but not by much. There's a PDF of a presentation called Puget Sound Data Ring that explains the concept a little better.

Cool project.  Nice extension on the HSMM projects.

The discussion on Citadel BBSing via amateur radio is really nothing new.

I ran a Citadel:K2NE node on 2meter ham packet radio back in 1987-1990 which networked with my landline Citadel running the same software. The ham node ran on k2ne.ampr.org initially in Chatsworth NJ, then for a short while in Browns Mills. It also networked with Brian Riley (KA2BQE) and his CP/M Citadel (Morningstar Keep).

Fun! Aggravatingly slow back then (2m packet was... excruciating).

But still fun.

I remember that, it made me want to get a ham radio setup so I could get into the packet universe and play around. I was in college at the time and didn't have a place of my own to erect an antenna, though.

One of the frequent praises we received when we first changed Citadel over to a client/server architecture was that it was much friendlier to the user when run over high-latency links. The user wasn't forced to deal with character by character lag and could compose messages locally.

Not new, but if you spend a bit more it seems that it is useful at 128 Kbps speeds (DD mode D-Star) at the same time you can squeeze some use out of it via the text mode client at 1200 baud as well.  It makes even cheap hams like me able to have some fun with it.

Citadel:K2NE was text mode only -- this was 1986ish, remember? DialUp??? ;)

Well, it's new to me. I'd never heard of Cit until 2006, and not gotten into radio until this June.
