Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
Qwest just started offering VDSL in my area (as far as I can tell reading about it, that means fiberoptics to a hub in the neighborhood, then copper wire from there to me). They're quoting 12 Mbps down/3 up for the same I'm paying for a 3 Mbps down with cable, and 20 Mbps down for a shitload more. Can I realistically expect a quadrupling of my downstream speed for switching over, or is there something else I need to be finding out from Qwest before I sign on with them? I'm pretty unfamiliar with the technology, and I haven't found much anecdotal information about VDSL specifically, except for U-verse, which doesn't apply here. Anyone have first-hand knowledge of the service and how well it works?
