Does the route to Netflix servers pass through Comcast for everyone?

I’m in St. Louis and use Charter for my internet. Just for kicks, I ran “tracert netflix.com” at a Windows command prompt and it seems that from here to Illinois, its all charter hops, but through IL, NY, and VA, the hops are various comcast.net domains.

I do realize that netflix.com likely isnt the domain of the servers actually doing the streaming, but this is still very interesting to me.

1997-2003 Grand Prix Climate Control Diagnostics

This is a quick reference for how to use the diagnostic mode built into the dual zone digital climate control system which came installed in some 1997 through 2003 Pontiac Grand Prix Models.

Every time I want to look this up I always have trouble remembering the terms I need to search for to retrieve it, so I have stolen mirrored this from This Forum Post.

To enter diagnostics mode:
Press and hold both the Driver and Passenger knobs in simultaneously until the display changes to read "-00". To change position, turn the Driver knob to the desired number and turn the Passenger knob one click to view the data for that position.

SquareSpace.com First Impressions

Last night I signed up for the 2 week trial of SquareSpace.com after hearing the advertisement on Leo Laporte’s TWiT network.  He’s said he will not advertise products he doesn’t actually approve of, so I figured I’d give it a shot.

It only took a few minutes to get it up and online.  I just picked a template, filled in some basic info, set up my cname from www.peq.me, wrote a quick about and welcome page.  Amazingly, this seems to be going exactly as advertised.

One of the things that drew me into trying this is that there is an iPhone app for updating.  The app seems very nice.  It opened quickly and seems to have a very usable interface- just as polished looking as the web editor does. I tested adding pictures by uploading some screenshots of the app.  

 

 

I’ve got nothing negative to say here.  If you’re looking for an extremely simple way to quickly get a website up and running, this is my new recommendation.  If you see this page still alive more than two weeks from 5.4.2010, then I’ve become a paying member.
