Re: Google picks KCK/KCMO for ultra fast fiber network

Cabling is the responsibility of a building's owner, and is done well before any internet connection ever touches the router in the basement. Google is not in the cabling business, as business is concerned. All Google(or any internet provider) would do with an office building is just terminate one o...

Re: Google picks KCK/KCMO for ultra fast fiber network

I haven't heard anything, vague or adamant, to the effect that Google is not interested in courting business customers. Though that's only because I am not very well informed. I certainly believe they would say that. As to why, I have no idea. However, I can't imagine how a "home-based business" wou...

Re: Elevated HOV lanes

HOV lane/carriage restriction is a great idea, but people in KC's suburbs would crap a brick factory. So of course, I support them.

Re: Google picks KCK/KCMO for ultra fast fiber network

What interests me more than anything else is the upload speed. I have heard a lot of people complaining about how it's not noticeably better than Time Warner or whatever else, because they're not able to get facebook to load fast on their iphones over wifi. I'm not concerned about any of that. That'...

Two people have availed themselves of this newly clarified system, and staubio has sent an email making fun of it. Keep them coming.

How to Get Your New Account Activated

Hi! It turns out that over time this forum has become well known by millions of eastern bloc spambots and the ill-mannered scumbags who program them. Over the decade or so that this forum has been around we have made many attempts to combat the ever-mounting spam lobby. Captcha, arithmetic, essay, s...

Re: New User Registration

Also, tweeting @kcrag or @thekcrag won't get to me. I don't use twitter. I own @kcrag, but I haven't touched it since the great biped carnivores roamed the landscape in the late Cretaceous period. Maybe I'll dust it off, but the 100% best way to get your account activated is to send a real-live huma...

Re: New User Registration

The webhost we're using has written me to say that they're disabling our email because of the tens of thousands of activation emails that are being sent as a result of spambot registrations. Spambots eat up "anti-spam" measures for breakfast. Captcha, math, and "prove your humanity" challenges are c...

Re: KC's Top Ten Dive Bars

I would think these bars would rank among the best dives in the city. Has anyone been inside any of them? Green Duck Tavern, 26th and Prospect. No, but I will soon. Golden Bar, E. 9th and Spruce. Yep, and they were pulling beers out of a cooler on the floor. A vietnamese family appeared to be livin...

Re: KC's Top Ten Dive Bars

Tom's Bigger Jigger has been Teri's Bigger Jigger for a couple of years, and I wholeheartedly endorse it as one of KC's best dives. Even higher though I would place Karen's Kozy Cabin, just down the street. I was once threatened by a meth-head there. Chrizow saw. I drank a can of bud that literally ...

Re: beer.

It was introduced in bottles only a couple of years ago. Prior to that it was draught-only. I rather liked that kind of commitment to traditionalism. Maybe they're reverting.

I guess I'll have to stick with the 0k avatar that's there now. :D
Fixed. The size limit now is 256k, at 100x100. Thanks for bringing it to our attention.

Welcome to the new forum!

We are never going back to SMF, FYI. The hate I feel for SMF blinds me.

We are still working to get things back to normal, but this is the forum's new look, more or less.

Bitch and moan here!
