Wrong attititude. You should be doing Tao bo punches at the screen.... yeah yeah, yeah yeah YEAH! 80 hours Yeah, watch me, YEAh bring it on! p.s. If you aren't, and aren't being rewarded, it sounds like you're in the wrong job. Very sage, but I probably will never again be at the point where I embr...

Thanks. I went through their site and sort of understand the options. I think you're right that they will add their own trunking through the main room. We moved our NAS from the office to accomodate this. I just wanted to make sure we didn't need a contractor waiting here at the ready as their fact ...

Oh, if only. I work another 2-10 hours a day when the office is closed as well. I'm at 51.5 hours so far this week :(

Fibre installation in condo - need contractor?

Hi, all. I am looking for some advice on whether I need a contractor to prepare the condo for fibre installation? OpenNet sent over a paper that explained what kind of access their cables need and suggested having a contractor present during installation. My question is - are most modern condos prep...

Just to update for anyone else with this issue, we got: Starhub 3 month plan, 89$ for the cable modem, 16 Mbps down / 2 Mbps upload just under 60$ per month. No cancelation fee or activation fee free cable tv (20 channels) for 3 months included So, I think the key here is to call the companies and a...

Thanks, I will check them out. My husband did the fibre research and I don't even know if that was one of the options he considered. He chose MyRepublic as he read that they don't traffic-shape as some of the other providers do. Researching today, I have found that M1 has 6 month contracts and also ...

Thanks, I did try with my BB but the signal was intermittent. Maybe I can find a sweet spot in the apartment but it would be nice to have a more reliable connection. Does anyone know how reliable fibre service from MyRepublic is? Perhaps I could rationalize keeping Starhub as a backup if MyRepublic ...

Short-term internet

The apartment we recently moved in to is wired for Starhub according to the landlords. We called OpenNet and they told us our building is actually wired for fibre, but not our apartment. We've asked the landlord to allow us to pay to have the apartment wired for fibre, but best case scenario this wo...

I see now that I actually did a fairly terrible job at responding to the original question. Has anybody of you taken a cat in the cabin and if so, how did you handle everything (at the airport, check-in and control, water, etc.) It seems that my cat has to stay only 10 days in the quarantine station...

I am bringing my cat from the US to Singapore in December in cabin on United. Most US carriers allow pets in cabin unless the destination prohibits it (like Hawaii). Cats really don't enjoy flying (or any kind of stressful situation), but the FAA reports on pets in cargo is a little concerning, so I...
