OT-- Tech help vs Luddite edition, Mar. 28


When last we met, in our continuing story, ScruffyLefty had just posed a question:

"I need a new wireless router preferably under $100 that has gigabit ethernet. Suggestions?"

Goose was wondering how he'd missed hearing about "powerline networking until now?"

MTOlsen had an XBox question and a whole bunch of youse youts talked video games, something I know nothing about.

What else-- I've had an offer from Xfinity to get a Verizon phone through them-- since I have no idea what a two year service plan would cost normally, or what is involved in a two year plan, and how the cost of the phone fits into it, I have no idea if it is a good deal or not. This sort of thing makes me twisty-eyed.

and going in the opposite direction, I just found an interesting old Smithsonian piece on the Luddites
