@wiski @lister Downtown TO. Condos. Real fibre straight into your unit not that Bell Fibe shit. No caps. No traffic shaping. No bullshit. Symmetrical upload/download. I can get up to 500/500 Mbps if I wanted. 100Mbps will do for now. :-p I've waited a long time for this.


No I don't work for them but I've tried to get hired. No dice so far.


If you're living in a downtown TO condo get your board members to talk to them. Ditch Bell and Rogers!

After a year with only OTA TV watching HNIC games and listening on radio, I'm back with fibre TV via Beanfield! I intend though to be productive during games making homebrew. That way I'll have some good and cheap beer to cry in should this season follow the last bunch.


Still, all things hopeful! 82-0!

@Loric76 Hottest place I've been is southern Taiwan in July. Temperatures are 30-35C but with humidity it easily feels like 45-50C. From about April through to November it very rarely cools down unless it rains and that's a brief respite or if you go up into the mountains. In the evenings the temperature falls 2-4C but the humidity usually remains. Stepping outside a wave of heat hits you and sweat starts in mere minutes. I don't mind it during the day but when trying to sleep A/C is necessary requirement.

When they put out some warnings about the temperature here in Toronto last week and this week I said "Oh finally!" then "Meh" when I went outside.

I'll be up at Lake Simcoe this weekend with friends. No strip bar unfortunately.

@rickpearce76 I've always thought a structure like that was wise for later on getting a draft pick or two from teams that need to get to the floor but not actually pay the floor.

I am going to take these events as:


1) the head coach candidate they want isn't available (yet)

2) the assistant coaches were sacrificial lambs

3) the Leafs have lots of money and no cap on staff so Carlyle gets added years for the $$$

4) 2014-2015 is probably going to be similar to 2013-2014 (on the playoff bubble)

5) even if I get TV back this summer I'll be watching games sparingly

6) Carlyle will be gone after next season

7) a new head coach will be hired

8) ???

9) PROFIT!!!

@CanuckUKinToronto   Haven't been on the last little while (busy!) so I don't know if this has been thrashed out yet but I read some whispers about Babcock possibly becoming available after his contract is done after next season.  Would you be willing to go with Carlyle for one more season if you knew unofficially that Babcock was waiting in the wings?

Of course there'd be player changes as well but I was curious about the Babcock thing.
