[PLUG] something nice

My parents said that if you don't have anything nice to say, say nothing. This explains why I didn't speak until age 18. Now I make it a policy to say something nice at least once a year; this is that saying.

Everybody's best friend, Comcast, is causing me no end of grief. After some bizarre performance issues (decent UL speeds, no DL speed), they blamed it on my ancient modem (docsis 2 instead of 3). While the wife is out getting a new one, I am left with no internet (HORROR!).

Checking the Verizon S3 phone, I noticed a hotspot option. I turned it on, the laptop found it, then refused to connect. Then I plugged the phone into the laptop, hit Tethering, and POOF - it just connected and Just Works.

Bravo linux and android (and Verizon?).
