Good point. So what's 1Gb good for? Must be something. I'm sure I'll find out eventually.

BTW, Joe, WTF are you doing hanging around here? We all know you have no furniture to arrainge. The one box of Hawaiian shirts is unpacked and they're hanging neatly in the closet. You've been to Kmart and bought all new plates, bowls, cups, frying pan, two pots, etc including a drying rack for the sink, new socks and underwear... It didn't all fit in the truck of the Miata, but it's all in it's place now. The wrappings are in the kitchen trash can. You've pushed them down with your hand until they sort of stay down. (You've considered calling it a full bag of garbage, but it's not quite full.) The new
toaster oven toaster oven
will be delivered on Tuesday.

You should be out cruising the neighborhood. Figure out where you're going to get your coffee in the morning. Where are you going to get hot sauce at midnight?

A large business with a lot of bandwidth required.

We stream 1080p all the time on 10Mb pipes- it's called Youtube.

Netflix, incidentally, has already announced support for 4k: Netflix to Stream 4K Content In a 'Year or Two' - Prepare to Have Your Bandwidth Caps Annihilated | DSLReports, ISP Information

I'm very confused by all of the above.

I wasn't even aware 4K technology was going to be available in a "year or two". I thought it was still very much in the trial stages in small pockets of Japan and Korea. As far as I know, nobody makes a commercially available TV yet, at least not in this country. For some reason I was thinking 4K was still 3-4 years out, not 1-2.

One of my best friend's just uploaded a picture of his newly aquired NA. And... he's slammed it. I'm actually really pissed off. Next time I'm in Oklahoma City I'll be ranting to him. I didn't think something so dumb could make me angry, but I guess it's because it is one of my friends destroying a Miata and because I love these cars so much. FACK

Not only are they available in the US, but they're less outrageously priced than you'd think: Amazon.com: 4k tv

I'm actually quite happy with my existing toaster oven. It's a Rival TO450, which I purchased about 15 years ago for about 15 dollars.

I'm sure that there are better ovens which heat more evenly (mine is biased towards the right on the top burner), but for my needs, it's entirely adequate.

I guess I've been under a rock. Is there anything over here to watch on a 4K? And I would consider that a pretty steep price. No way I'm ever going to pay $5k+ for a TV. I'm plenty happy with my $1000-$1500 sets so far.

Absolutely nothing at all.

Zilch.

Although at this year's NAB convention, I did get to see a 4k stream actually being broadcast over the air, from one end of a booth to the other. Took up two UHF channels, with horizontal and vertical polarization separately modulated (effectively four channels in the real world.)

We're at about the same place now that 1080 sets were when they first came out.

Damn. Are broadcasts going to be that much different? I knew they were big, but didn't realize it would take that kind of work to broadcast over current technologies. Are they going to have to do some changes in the way things are broadcast here?

True. I wouldn't know, since I didn't get an 1080 TV until about 5 years ago. At that point the average was in the $1500-$2500 range for mid tier 50"-60" models.

Honestly, I have to question whether 4k is really going to catch on, at least in the near future.

Going from analog NTSC to 720/1080p was a pretty major leap in perceived quality. I don't see quite the same thing going from 1080p to 4k, at least, in television-sized presentation. It makes sense for theatrical presentation, but personally, I don't find 1080p lacking at reasonable screen sizes.

So far as I know, the FCC isn't planning to sanction a 4k standard for OTA transmission. I think we're finally at a point where broadcast isn't going to drive the next standard. And the broadcasters themselves (which includes the sat / cable networks) just got done spending a ****-ton of money to upgrade their plants to 1080- it's going to take a LOT to convince them to do it all again.

So my neighbours think it's hilarious not to use trashbags when throwing stuff in the bin. Spent the last hour hosing, burning and cleaning our bin from maggots and other **** I don't even want to know. Inconspicuous revenge plans, share them with me.

Huh? I am confused by this post. In America we use trash bags in trash cans. Then we throw those trash bags in big outdoor trash can that gets picked up weekly.

How mean do you want to be? Do you want to cost them money or just time.

He's saying his neighbors are not using bags but just throwing raw garbage in the communal cans.

Same here. **** goes in the trashcan, those bags go into the wheelie bin outside that gets emptied every other monday (real genius, especially when it's hot as **** and they sit there smelling like all hell for 2 weeks). Every house gets 1 wheelie bin.

This is the second time I had to do this. First time I just used the pressure washer and whatever cleaning agent I had. This time it was boiling water, bleach and let it soak for an hour. Then pressure washer again. It's just waiting for this **** to repeat itself.

Both, but it should be fairly inconspicuous, can't cost me money (<$10) and not too severe.

No communal cans, just bins (1 per house) that are usually in the front yard. Ours are opposite to eachother so smells/flies/maggots transfer real fast.
