    Are consumers getting what they pay for When it comes to Internet speeds?

    in Entertainment

    When it comes to Internet speeds, the U.S. lags behind much of the developed world.

    Clocking in at the top of the list was Seoul, South Korea, where Internet users can get ultra-fast connections of roughly 1000 megabits per second for just $30 a month. The same speeds can be found in Hong Kong and Tokyo for $37 and $39 per month, respectively.

    Homestead Technologies Sitebuilder LPX Desktop

    in Prepping

    Homestead Technologies started by Justin Kitch is one of America's biggest success stories. Kitch started Homestead Technologies in a spare room while living with 5 roomates at college. Homestead technologies sold to Intuit for $176 million dollars. Intuit kept Kitch on as an adviser but in 2012 sold Homestead Technologies to EIG Endurance International Group. EIG is a giant among cheap hosting companies with 35+ companies owned by EIG worldwide. 

    When EIG bought out Bluehost and Hostgator they moved them to SERVER FARMS. The move took nearly 4 days and created numerous technical problems. EIG moved Homestead Technologies to a Server Farm on November 19th 2014 and has shut their 70k users out of their Sitebuilder LPX/Desktop. Service interruptions were mounting as an alternative to Sitebuilder LPX/Desktop was offered with much slower speeds namely homestead Techologies Sitebuilder Plus. 

    Personaly I don't blame EIG for trying to update a 15 year old product that has been neglected for years. Simply put you can't expect to design todays websites with your grandparents sitebuilders. At some point needless and outdated products need to be discarded and new and improved service needs to be added. 

    From a Flashprepper point of view this is a disaster. It's an online disaster but a disaster none the less. The disaster which is now an online super storm of sorts started 15 years ago with neglect. No money was ever put into Sitebuilder LPX/Desktop. Now 15 years later it as a breaking point. Hosted on old outdated unstable servers EIG made a bold move to update service to Homestead customers. 

    EIG was quick to call this anything but a disaster and in fact are calling it a MIGRATION. It is a migration to faster speeds, more security, and a better product. Many Homestead members call this migration  the worse upgrade EIG could have made and with really bad timing Cyber Monday 2014.

    in Books

    Join host, Tabatha Pope as she chats it up with debut romance author, Blaire Edens on The Librarian on Authors on the Air.

    Blaire Edens lives in mountains of North Carolina on a farm that’s been in her family since 1790. When she’s not plotting, she’s busy knitting, running, or listening to the Blues. Blaire loves iced tea with mint, hand-stitched quilts, and yarn stores. She refuses to eat anything that mixes chocolate and peanut butter or apple and cinnamon. She’s generally nice to her mother, tries to remember not to smack her bubble gum, and only speeds when no one’s looking.

    Blaire's debut, Wild About Rachel, is a must-not-miss read for those looking to laugh, cry and feel warm and fuzzy all over.  Oh and all of this in the midst of creepy, scaly creatures!  Her writing is fresh and some of the wittiest this librarian has read in a while. Find out more about Blaire and her books, visit www.blaireedens.com.

    Over the Top Radio - US Pro Cycling Challenge Stage 5 with Benjamin Day

    in Fitness

    United Health Care Cycling Team's Benjamin Day joins us to discuss Stage 5 of the US Pro Cycling Challenge.  This stage’s serene first 80 miles hide a vicious finish and a last chance for climbing specialists to really make a move. Starting in the new host community of Woodland Park, Stage 5 heads west then north through some of the most picturesque terrain in Colorado. A quiet run through the Pike National Forest on Tarryall Rd., which was unpaved until just last year, and the riders will christen it properly with high speeds and lots of breakaway attempts. The action really starts when the race hits Fairplay and begins the long grind up 11,500 ft. Hoosier Pass, the highest point in the race. Then it is on to Breckenridge, where last year’s challenging finish up Moonstone Rd. will be repeated again. This nasty little climb can kill a break or launch a winner.

    Marquise Walker 2019 Out of Chicago - One of America's Top Players

    in Basketball

    More recently, we see that the players who run the point may be just as much of a scoring threat as anyone else on the court, while still delivering the ball to the rest of their team.

    There is no longer a “right way” to play point in 2014. What matters most is that they are leading their team.

    They run the show. And In some cases, they are the show.  Enter Chicago native Marquise Walker; who must be considered immediately not only as the top point guard, the top scoring guard, but possibly and arguably one of the best players in the class of 2019. 

    Without question already one of the most explosive scorers in his class; Walker can play at either the point or the two and is a big and strong backcourt player who beats down defenders with his strength all over the floor. He has a propensity for hitting big, often difficult shots - a skilled scorer who can shoot from deep or attack off the dribble.  Walker is in his natural habitat when he's looking for his own offense and as stated is a big shot taker and maker who can also transform an offense with his creativity and passing ability as well as his ability to run a team and keep the defense honest with his range and consistent 3-ball.

    He pushes the ball under control and makes good decisions at high speeds and is an excellent open court passer.  With the frame to add additional strength Walker can easily be a multi-category contributor and with a dedicated effort could push consistently for triple double numbers with a focused effort.  Flat out there are not many players in the country that can do the things that Walker does – those who question the viability of youth projections at this age; can make Walker the poster boy for P2ball as we will state right now for the record that you are seeing a mid-to-high major collegian player developing right before your eyes.
