cable fail

Wow, this is complete madness. I’m sitting here wondering how many people are leeching, and why is the porn connector there? Heh heh. Okay, okay — it has been over a decade since I saw something like this so I can’t remember what it is called. Well, it’s that thing that is connected to the splitter, then to the cable wire. We used something similar back in the old day to activate porn.

    What a mess. Cable uses a node system, with 12 locations per node. The more devices connected to those 12 locations, and this includes TVs, the slower the total connection speed is. This one must be slower than molasses going uphill in a winter blizzard.

    I remember a professor, not a football fan, talking about how slow his Internet was one Superbowl Sunday. He went out to the local node and disconnected the other houses, got blazing speeds that day. Luckily his neighbors never found out.
