Feel free to add your own thoughts (subtract the profanity, please) and help us multiply the reader participation here at Sharky Extreme (and you thought math was tough...). We've added links on each spotlight page so you can easily add your own comments and contribute to the debate! If your repartee strikes us as useful, humorous, or otherwise entertaining, it stands the distinct possibility of being featured next week.

    Technical Support Q/A: My Cable Modem Wont Connect
    Just For Laughs - "Hamburgalar" came up with $250 so he headed out to Best Buy and purchased a new cable modem. He thought it would be as simple as 'plug it in and go', but as many of our forum readers point out, there is certainly a lot more to getting a cable modem up and running! Of course, in the end this thread does seem to get silly and no one can decide if this user is legit with his questions, but regardless there is some good advice for those who really have no clue about what to do after you buy a cable modem (Hint: make sure you can get cable internet in your home before buying).
