    VPN advice.

    Well Man in High Castle was my first choice of content to watch from Amazon Prime and I just finished watching the last episode of season 1 tonight... then I looked for season 2... no joy. But as far as I can see season 2 was just released on Dec 16th so there just might be a delay getting it...

    VPN advice.

    Haha... and today Amazon Prime Video Canada went live. Doah! I was searching two days too early. I haven't found any 4k content as yet (4k is what I was really interested in) but I sent customer service an email asking about 4k content availability and plans for the future.

    VPN advice.

    Haha... it sounds like I bought into something with half-info and got bit on my behind as the main reason I wanted to upgrade my TV was to try the streaming side and their 4k offerings. Oh well the TV is still nice and I will probably take a one month free Netflix sub to test the waters...

    VPN advice.

    Thanks for the replies. Had no idea VPN was a touchy subject. I had read this news article that got me started on the whole subject: What's a VPN, are they legal and does Netflix care Canadians use them? - The Globe and Mail And I'll be dog-goned but I am now not sure that Amazon Canada...

    VPN advice.

    I did a site search on "VPN" and it yielded no results (I was shocked) so... first time for everything. I bought myself a new smart TV for Christmas and am just learning the ropes as I started to set it up yesterday. I wanted to setup Amazon streaming and I could find it available...

    Review my loop

    I've always been against exhausting hot air into the case. The idea has always been to get the hot air out of the case as far as I'm concerned. Sure using colder exterior air will lower the loop temps some but at the expense of the overall temps for everything else. If I wanted to be all anal...

    Well done Trodas! A career at the UN awaits! (heavy on the waits)

    No one owes you a living

    I didn't read the whole thread but I'll offer a different perspective from that of the OP. A long time ago (90's) I was working as a programmer analyst and making decent money for that time. (75k a year or so) One guy I was working with was constantly complaining how little he was making...

    Playing MMO causes my connection to drop.

    I'm using Rogers cable extreme package and cable modem. The problem should be restricted to LOTRO as I don't have a problem with anything else. I'm using the Intel NIC now and have the same problem as when connected to the mobo. It is probably something introduced into the game with the new...

    Playing MMO causes my connection to drop.

    This is a strange one to me. When I'm playing LOTRO I can play fine but if I alt tab or exit the game I find the connection has dropped. I could've kept playing so the connection is actually up but it isn't... :p Now I say I could've kept playing but after some time in game it will...

    What happened to the missionary thread?

    I didn't see the original thread so from what I see here... My hopes and prayers are with your friends belgolas. All too often the missionaries or NGO volunteers make for easy targets... they go to help people in need and not to fight.

    Precedent setting life sentence for Baumgartner, 40 years no parole.

    I think the families of victims should have a say in what sentence criminals receive. The courts should have a range of possible sentences which fit the crime and the families decide on what they think is appropriate. I live near Woodstock and wen through the whole Tori Stafford ordeal. The...
