Save Net Neutrality

Friends. Allies. Compatriots.

We may have lost the net neutrality battle, but the war is far from over.

Our FCC chairman, Ajit Pai, was once a good man. A smart man. A fair man. He was a man with the best interests of internet users in his heart.

Unfortunately, it now seems clear that brain parasites have taken our beloved FCC chairman away from us. From the eyes-up, Ajit Pai is now just an empty head-shaped chamber, home to a tiny alien pulling levers.

All sense, all reason, and any sense of duty has been stolen from Ajit. He is gone.

This intergalactic menace can still be thwarted, however! It’s not too late. Congress can overrule the FCC vote to repeal net neutrality, but, much like my kids brushing their teeth, they probably won’t do it unless we yell at them a lot.

Please, raise your voices and join us in yelling a lot.

The Internet Is UNDER ATTACK, Net Neutrality is Dying

Net Neutrality @ Wikipedia 

“Net neutrality is the principle that Internet service providers and governments regulating most of the Internet must treat all data on the Internet the same, and not discriminate or charge differently by user, content, website, platform, application, type of attached equipment, or method of communication.[1] For instance, under these principles, internet service providers are unable to intentionally block, slow down or charge money for specific websites and online content…”

The old days – My TypePad Blog

  I had some the other day say that I had not been logging as long as I say.
The other day I just happen to get a link to an old post on TypePad.  I used TypePad as my blog hosting site from 2003 until 2012.  
  I used TypePad for a lot of years but it was not my first blogging site.  Well, the first blogging site was my bulletin board system in 1982!

God, I been doing this a long long time.  No wonder I am so tired.

No Internet service from Spectrum

Not a good start for October.  Spectrum had an “outage” affecting the Southeastern states, Texas and California.  I am in Fort Worth (TX) and I think it was off for over eight hours for us.
Hulu had a weekend special and it was free HBO from Friday night to Monday morning.  Darlene, started watching Game of Thrones.  She wanted to watch all of the episodes on HBO.  I did not think she could make it before we lost Internet.  Now, I am sure she will not see all of them.
I am not sure who she will blame.  She may blame President Trump or me.  I will try and get her to blame Spectrum.

Darlene will not be the only one blaming Spectrum.
The outage area is below.
