For some reason that remains a mystery for the time-being, our connectivity to the internet is crippled. It started off when Facebook changed some things, Firefox’s update, and somewhere in there something reacted badly to our Firewalls, which are now ‘hyper protective’, and are being worked on.
It’s not a ‘serious’ issue, but we cannot access Facebook, I can’t get here to WordPress reliably, and connection speeds are usually dismally low.
So, we’re working on it, and no problem is without a solution, and we’re GOING to find the solution for this nuisance.
I am hoping this gets posted on Facebook, and to all our friends who see this, we’re still here…just forging on ahead in the great war vs. software snags.
However, our newest addition, an un-named grey kitten is doing just fine. Had a busy day, but all the rest accepted him and adopted him, including Eydis who really does make a good ‘Big Sister’. 😀
Shaw cable is a total rip-off corporation. But as they’re the Monopoly for cable television…well, then you pay what they demand.
Just recently, Shaw ‘upgraded’ their service, and this means you now have to have a cable box–even to get Domestic Canadian Channels.
But, not all of them.
Spike, Teletoon, and other channels we had before…we now have to pay extra for. So, either we pay $170.00 extra on top of what we were paying for a new package so we can have the channels we USED to have on our subscription…or do without.
So…to hell with it. We cancelled out TV subscription earlier today, and the idiot on the customer service line was asking ‘why’ about every 2 minutes–despite the detailed reasons I gave…and then talked up a storm to convince us to ‘just give the new service an honest trial’. Yeah, we gave it a couple days, and it’s awkward, unresponsive, expensive, and while we get the channels we could care less about…we got none of the channels we liked.
To Shaw, I will state the following; You are an Imperialistic, profiteering, useless, corrupt corporation and a total rip-off operation. And don’t think we don’t know how you paid off the CRTC to keep online services like HULU out of canada, the same way you battled against satellite access.
Your days are numbered, count them carefully.

The United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime, (UNODC) in conjunction with the United Nations Counter-Terrorism Implementation Task Force, recently claimed in a white paper entitled The Use of the Internet for Terrorist Purposes that, “The use of the Internet for terrorist purposes is a rapidly growing phenomenon, requiring a proactive and coordinated response from Member States.”
The globalists backing this agenda “by the rule of law” (essentially a United Nations term that suggests US law can be circumvented by way of UN treaty) would love nothing more than to shut down key sections of the internet including alternative news and blogger sites that have the ability to release true and accurate information in near real time.
