“Is your digital antenna external (roof top) or internal (small box somewhere in your home)? Also, what city are you in (for channel reception)?”

“It is a roof top antenna. I bought chimney cables so it's secured to the chimney and I didn't have to actually attach it to my roof. It took about an hour and a half to set up. Since then I've helped two other friends do theirs and we're down to about 45 minutes from taking it out of the box, assembling it, and connecting it to the cable box on the outside of the house. You own the box, the cable company does not so you connect it on the outside and have it run throughout the house as if you had normal cable. I attached a signal booster to it and I get great HD reception on all four tv's in the house.
The 1$40 covered the antenna, 60 ft of coaxial cable, and chimney straps. The booster was another $60. For that I get about 40 channels. There is no monthly fee whatsoever. It is free tv. You get the channels at their source, which means that I get the American Superbowl commercials in real time. That's pretty cool.
I'm in west Toronto and have it pointed south towards the lake. Not sure how much of a difference that made.
I bought my set up in a store in Brampton. I went there and talked to a few guys in the line and they gave me some good advice. The woman behind the desk was very knowledgeable.”
“Again... there was financial fraud in China long before Bitcoins came around. Should we get rid of cash because of pick pockets? What about debit/credit cards? People create fake cards and rip others off every day? It doesn't matter what kind of currencies are our there... someone, somewhere will find a way to exploit it. Plus, if you want to get rid of Bitcoins, you are going to have to shut the whole internet down. People can trade Bitcoins as easily as sending an email/sharing music.”
“So much misinformation being posted here about Bitcoins... do some research people! Bitcoins may be volatile at the moment but they are outside the reach of the current manipulation of currencies world wide (by central/private banks, governments, etc.). Bitcoins are here to stay.”

“Unlikely. They have become the haven for money launderers. They will be crushed, and probably soon. ”
“Bitcoins can be converted back to regular currency at the time of transaction, resulting in no losses for the business. In fact, the merchant will save money because the conversion fee is significantly less than usual methods of payment ($0.01 vs cost if providing debit --> $0.07-$0.40 or credit --> % of transaction).”

“Teksavvy offers cable and it's multiple times faster than Rogers. I was astounded when I did a speed test... had to scroll to the right because Teksavvy's result couldn't even fit on the same page. They KILLED Rogers in the speed test (and Bell too).”

“that, to me, doesn't make any sense. they 'use' rogers for their cable.. its the same service. and they use bell for theirs. they have different tiers of services.. for eg, i am upgraded to 16mbit as opposed to the starting 6mbit..”
