Sooo, Spectrum (formerly Time Warner Cable) now charges $4.95 a month in order to use Wi-Fi, even if you provide your own router with Wi-Fi capabilities. I honestly think it's BS and i'm wondering if there is any way around it. I can see my router broadcasting a signal but there is no connection.

I provided my own router when i signed up 3 years ago and they just charge me $40/mo for 60/4.
Every year I threaten to cancel and they give me another year at the starting price.

Just call them and tell them to "turn your WiFi off." Sound really stupid about it though. Act like you know nothing about computers and only use your phone anyway.

This thread is about the appreciation of horology, as well as the micro-engineering and materials engineering that are required to make a fine watch, clock, or other timepiece.

why do you need to defend the honour of a gay anal receiver

> The reason AMD has been tight lipped about the entire issue is because they cannot be seen enforcing retailer MSRPs (which would be illegal); they can however (((''suggest''))) the optimal price and then try to enable it using incentives like rebates

>Remember, it is illegal for AMD to force a price point on retailers. Our source believed that the market forces should naturally converge at a universal price point of $599

>Vegas cost structure is going to come down sometime in Q4 2017 when Hynix’s HBM2 memory enters the scene along with custom AIB variants

NVMe SSDs aren't for a faster OS boot, they're for productivity/scratch disk/VMs. NVMe and M.2 are not the same thing, M.2 is a form factor
