    And this, kids, is why we need IPv6. A simple stateful firewall is much easier to manage.

    I had that look ( from panel 2) on my face back when I had Cox Internet. I wasn't yelling at a person but my moniter everytime I lost connection to WoW. Over time our internet got so bad we couldn't send out pictures bigger then a thumbnail. Turned out there was a bad connection in the neighborhood. They had to dig stuff up and replace it. By then We were switching the Verizon Fios. I still give Cox ads the middle finger.

    Our connection would turn to shit whenever it rained or snowed. In Connecticut, it rains and snows. Often, and at length. It was something to do with the cable from the pole to the apartment complex wasn't properly shielded, but it would 'fix itself' so they just left it as is.

    One of the things I don't miss about living there.

    This has to be one of the swearingest PA comics in a long time. Perhaps ever? I don't know how one would try to figure that out.

    Swear counts (root words):

    Ass: 2
    Shit: 2
    God damn: 1
    Fuck: 5

    OHHH MYYYY GGGGGOOOOODDD!! This comic hits so close to home. I have at least one customer a month bitching about strict NAT. Although they are not as profane as Gabe, the intent is the same: we need to not be so strict about NAT. They sometimes believe that we are intentionally restricting it just to squeeze money out of em.

    You know, if Microsoft spent more time helping people transition to ipv6 smoothly, and less time creating terms like 'strict' that just make the users NAT experience dumb, these sorts of things would not even be an issue anymore.
