Well, if you have more dead voters than living, it makes sense that they woudl vote for a dead candidate. So, it kinda sounds to me like the whole process went fairly.

Does he even have the authority to unilaterally enroll the United States in a global warming treaty? I suppose since he can "legislate" through the EPA it carries the rule of law unless and until Congress legislates otherwise?

Jail is too good for him.

When you "co-locate" your machine in an internet provider's "machine

room", be it your local ISP or a Tier 1 provider, you pay for the
bandwidth you use, and if you exceed your allotted bandwidth, you pay

more - you do NOT get "throttled." It's included. Just by colocating,

Netflix (and any other such entity) is **buying** their bandwidth.

To charge SEPARATELY for TRANSPORTING the bandwidth for which they
have already paid is larcenous and anti-competitive. Period.

Netflix isn't colocating...they're spinning up and turning down on-demand compute and storage resources via Amazon EC2 (and maybe S3).

You are the only one I've seen asserting that claim.

Everyone else is mentioning Netflix server boxen in machine rooms.

And if that isn't "co-locating" then I do not know what else it could be.

That's not the whole story. Netflix runs much of their UI on EC2, yes--but you might call this just their "control plane."

All the bandwidth-heavy bits--the actual video files and most likely all the web static content as well--are hosted on various 1st- and 3rd-party CDN's.

This is not an uncommon arrangement for EC2 hosted sites, including my employer's. Actually it's becoming standard practice across the modern internet to have some sort of CDN partner, even if you have your own datacenter or already lease colo elsewhere.

EC2's metered bandwidth charges surely provide part of the explanation...

They're paying.
You do NOT get rack space and a connection in *any* NAP site for free

unless you are the ISP that owns the NAP.
Period.

The exact terms of their co-lo agreement, including the money part,
may well be confidential. I know that all of *our* co-lo agreements
with our co-lo customers were confidential. We even included a "will
not disclose to law enforcment except on presentation of a warrant
signed by a judge and issued out of a Court of Competent Jurisdiction"

clause. In fact, our collection of Acceptable Use Policies and customer

contracts were judged by the EFF, back in the mid 1990s as "the example

by which all others must be judged."

I do absolutely know that of which I speak on this issue.

They're paying Comcast.

But they didn't want to. They wanted it to be settlement-free: "hey, you bring the customers, we'll bring the content. Win/win!"

From their previous open letters, and from https://openconnect.itp.netflix.com/ where you'll see no mention of settlement, only an open offer to set up settlement-free peering or even settlement-free COLO with their boxes.

Anyway, they lost that negotiation, nuff said. And this discussion still has nothing to do with "net neutrality", which is all about discriminatory traffic shaping, not about how many physical ports are allocated to whom.

Common sense dictates the following:

* No network operator should have its peering arrangements mandated by force of law.

* A network operator which performs discriminatory traffic shaping is no longer a common carrier.

* If you completely block Facebook from time to time, the Internet will be a better place.

Watching the debate over Net Neutrality, being fought between big-government socialists who want the FCC to hyper-regulate the Internet, and big-business fascists who want telcos to be able to abuse their customers even more, makes me think of Henry Kissinger's quip about the Iran-Iraq War many years ago: "It's a pity they can't both lose."

The thing that disappoints me is that Paul Ryan doesn't get it. I was hoping that the true conservatives would understand the difference between *true* net neutrality and a government takeover of the Internet.

Few comments:
1) If you grab for the gun of a cop, your life is forfeit.
2) It is not OK for a cop to use lethal force against the fleeing suspect of a minor offense.
3) Attempted murder of a cop is not a minor offense.
4) Is is never OK for a cop to shoot a surrendering suspect, if that's what happened.
5) Anonymous posting unicorn rainbow JPGs to the hacked Twitter page of the KKK needs to happen more often.

Someone's posted a video that says they can prove that the shooting was from 180 feet away, and not 35. I don't necessairly trust the source and haven't seen the video. I can say that my Uncle was a cop, and probably one of the most dishonest people I know - and while that can apply to any profession, it does mean that I don't trust someone just because they wear a badge.

As is usually the case with these things, the guilty party is Al Sharpton.

Like with most things, one must certainly be born with talent...but even when born with talent, one must truly practice hard to achieve such extreme levels of skill.

By the same people that prove Kennedy was assassinated by shot that came from the top of the twin towers during
the faked moon landing.


My gut instinct tells me to always choose the opposite side of Al Sharpton... but I don't trust the police side
of the story either.... but Al Sharpton.

Agreed with that 100%. Those of us who are monday morning quarterbacking don't have enough information to make an informed assessment of the situation, but it's almost always safe to side against Sharpton.

Always going against Al Sharpton is giving him too much credit. He's intersted in what's good for him, not in the truth. He could be absolutely right on some issues - but that matters just as much as if he was wrong: nothing.
