That's a good looking MSM. A/C is definitely nice. I don't mind it at all when I'm just having fun and driving around. But if I actually have to go somewhere being sweaty and smelling like fuel isn't all that awesome lol.

I sit in traffic on the way to work and ALWAYS smell bad after doing that in the middle of the day. I probably won't use the AC a ton, but it is convenient to know that I have it.

I'm having the worst time trying to find a seat that will fit my fat *** and put me on the floor.

That's not terrible. But compared to Google Fiber it's garbage. Definitely beats the crap 40Mbps I have.

I'm guessing you have a 250gb per month limit?

**** you all. I feel like a cave man at 18Mb. I never feel lacking for speed though. I can still download 5gb torrents in under an hour, so no big deal.

Yesterday....I sand. Today....I sand. Tomorrow....I sand.

I will sand till my fingers bleed, for they already ache.....from the sanding.

I am lost. Consumed by sanding. It is a bitter, hot, and lonely world the sanding.

One day I will sand no more. No more.

Till then, I will sand.

Revealing the identity would have spoiled the guessing-game in the other thread.

I'm not aware of any limit.

To be fair, this is more than I could possibly need or want. 10 Mb was sufficient.

As with torque, there comes a point at which you simply cannot use any more.

Is that real? It's like having a water cooler capable of dispensing 1000 gal/min. No matter how thirsty you are you can only drink a glass at a time.

Actually, it would probably be useful for streaming hdtv. Netflix just scratches the surface of what I think we could (will) have.

I've never had an issue streaming HD at 18Mb, and I still have plenty of room left. I can imagine my current speed could easily handle 4K or 8K when it eventually comes around. If it is the future format that is.
