Feeling nostalgic for my Saturday mornings

I'm up early (for me, at least) today dealing with a server issue (fun). I used to remember WANTING to get up early on Saturday mornings to watch cartoons. Nowadays, the cartoon selection on Saturday mornings is somewhat lacking. I used to remember the content being so much better/plentiful during the late 70's and 80's. I guess the Internet and Cartoon Network has changed the way the big networks think about new cartoon content. One of those old staples of Saturday morning cartoons was School House Rock. Below was one of my favorites.


Who says Comcast Internet sucks?

I used to have a ton of issues with Comcast's Internet service. But over the past few months, they've slowly started to make improvements to the service. Specifically, they've really bumped up their upload speeds. I'm watching The Players Championship via my Slingbox and I'm averaging between 1000 to 1500 Kbps. This time last year, I would have topped out around 500 Kbps. Supposedly, they might be bumping up upload speeds for the standard service to about 4MB later this year. Can't wait!
