Georgia Power spokesman John Kraft said a failure overnight of switch gear equipment caused the outage. He said other Georgia Power customers were not affected because it was an issue with Delta equipment, and said Georgia Power crews were on site working with Delta to repair the equipment.

Re: Yay Capitalism!

Google fiber is near my street (Atlanta metro area), trenching on the main street, surveying telephone poles in my neighborhood last Friday. Good bye Comcast. I don't care if costs me more I have vivid memories of the disdain Comcast has displayed to it's "valued customers". A lot of my neighbors can't wait either.

Comcast stabs set-top boxes in the back, pipes directly into smart TVs

Re: The cable companies had already been trying to push this "app" model

Where's the DVR? It's racked and stacked in a Comcast data center and the app simply provides a UI. You will still be locked in.

My theory is that Larry has a small nuclear powered submarine with a big magnetic running under the bay just ahead of the Oracle Team USA boat!

When your losing try harder. If you are still losing cheat.

Cache 'n' carry: What's the best config for your SSD?

Re: Make your Own

I had to purchase a 15" MacBook Pro before the latest refresh that included retina displays, my old one died. Initially I was upset, yet lucky me the new MacBooks are not easily modified. I replaced the 750GB 5400rpm drive with a 7200rpm drive. I removed the DVD drive and replaced it with a 512GB SSD. I used the diskutil core storage commands to bind them into a volume and the machine is really fast. Someone mentioned a 12-15 second boot time and I regularly get 12-13 second boot up form a cold start. ~8 seconds of that is hardware check. I fly a lot and not only is the machine faster, but the battery life is extended because I'm not spinning a drive all the time. Would like to have the ability to pin a file on the SSD.
