Not AWS per se. They *allow* this as a password policy, but no org I've ever worked with has flipped that flag.

Pretty sure real estate groups over here would kill for apartment costs roughly equal to 10 months' rent, even with 50% occupancy. Yep, you can split hairs on whether the gov't selling at-market and losing money when doing so is a subsidy :)

Buried lede: Japan is in population implosion territory. Funny how supply and demand work. Also, Fortress is making a killing on the apartments, thanks to a heavy government subsidy baked into the purchase price. Oh, and negative inflation. tl;dr: different markets!

Thanks for the link! Opted out so y'all don't keep wasting trees and postage on stuff I'll never use. I'm sure I'll hear when y'all increase 'net speeds anyway.

Every time I get an email with a clickbait subject line like this...and I'm bored enough to open it...expect a tweet from me to this effect. Cool, ? The paper + postage y'all've spent to sell stuff I have no interest in could buy me a new modem and router. :|

"What you wanted is available now" No, , it isn't, unless by "wanted" you mean "wanted while waiting months to get the install done". You promoted linear TV. I want symmetric gigabit fiber. Preferably for $70/mo, but I'll take the non-promo price for the tier I'm on.

I figured that the cofounder of Serverless Days would have some sort of preference for the language that every serverless framework starts off supporting before adding anything else :)

I have a lead on a solid dev who can slot in at anything from CTO down to senior PHP-stack engineer. Remote or Seattle/Bellevue area. Drop me a DM if you've got something, or RT for reach.

So your preference is people doing ugly things in JS over ugly things in PHP?

And yes, I see this as a strength of the language, not a weakness :p

PHP is great at running crappy code, and doesn't have much of a learning curve. Heck of a combination.

Yep. I'm actually not in favor at all of forcing a spectrum transfer. That decreases fixed wireless viability in rural areas (where BRS/EBS may not reach as easily) and S/T have shown that they'll use spectrum when they have it. Dish, lolnope

So...fix those conditions rather than forcing divestiture of an MVNO :p

To clarify, I'm saying that he sees a threat from the fixed wireless/home broadband side (which *is* where the margin is, and where the margin pressure would be). You (and he) are absolutely right that reselling VZW is a complete sideshow for retention purposes only.

So maybe you go from four operators to three on the mobile side but go from one or two to three on the fixed side, and not just in one (part of) city.

Giving Dish more spectrum to squat on, rather than merely a preferential hosting/roaming agreement, does seem like a horrible idea given their track record. As for Moffat, I get the sense that he's worried that TMo will actually force price competition with his beloved cablecos.
