Go figure.
One of many reasons I picked up a Qwest fiber optic line when they came knocking on the door two weeks ago. 12Mb/s no sharing no throttling.

you got FIOS to the door? Lucky bugger!

My comcast connection averages over 20mb/s - EXCEPT for the stuff they throttle
Funny how comcast properties come through at full speed...

(This just changed recently btw.. they didn't throttle packets in this area until a couple of weeks ago. This is just the beginning! (They also put a 250 gig/moth cap on everyone a few months back.. quietly)

Got a spare room I can rent?

Bike ratios for this year's Dakar...

KTM is down from 126 competitors in 2009 to just 62 in 2011 while Yamaha is up 14 bikes from 2010. Honda is up 12 bikes, Aprilia is up five and BMW is up three. Notably absent is Suzuki.

I just got a notice my health insurance is going up $3.76

It cost them more than $3.76 to send me the notification... along with all the associated junk mail... along with a monthly summary telling me I've never used my health insurance.

Bureaucracy.

BEN,

For Vdub parts you might want to contact Jay down at New Vintage VW on Sheridan and I70. He has all the stuff that came from Rnady's Stuff when he was in Arvada. Good guy to deal with.

I guess you wouldn't be taking them if you didn't need them.
