It’s Official – 2020 RNC convention coming to Charlotte

Too bad the new Amtrak station won’t be ready for 6 years.

The transcontinental railroad was built in 6 years digging by hand and without CAD software.

    You have to love Amtrak. Government run train monopoly whose sole purpose seems to be hemorrhaging money. They will miss the opportunity to do so in Charlotte it appears 🙂

    Government agencies are run by lawyers and they like to sue each other – it means more jobs for the legal profession on both sides of each case and for judges as well. Lots of studies not just for each case, but in preparation should the other party initiate such a case.

    I’d bet the money spend on the guys doing the digging is small compared to the money spend on lawyers and administrators.

      Way cool. The first 5G devices will probably be for sale later this year…

      Also, T-Mobile had bought huge amounts of 700 and 600 MHz spectrum and has been rolling it out with technology that supports 5G with the flip of a switch. Also “T-Mobile plans to build out 5G in 30 cities this year, ”

        According to the story, AT&T will initially roll out 5G with hockey puck shaped wifi hotspots. UVerse is available right across the street but our condo association property manager refuses to allow AT&T to trench and make internal wiring changes. Spectrum (formerly Time Warner Cable) is the wrong technology and unreliable. After a day and a half outage, I was giving serious consideration to T-Mobile’s puck. We proved the streaming (1080p) worked fine. The problem is adding the puck (instead of using my iphone) can’t be done with the 2 lines for $60 55+ deal, and there is no option to extend the LTE tethering cap.

        But competition should improve the options.
