QUOTE OF THE DAY : "One may know how to win, but no one can be sure of victory." -- Sun Tzu

SONG OF THE DAY : Jurassic 5 : Quality Control

LINK OF THE DAY : Rogers: My Favorite People right now.

Now is the winter of our discontent
Made glorious summer by this sun of York.

Yes Richard III, you said it... This son of York(North York) has returned from his internet banishment to bring some light back into your lives. Did you miss me ?

This damn cold weather has been killing me... It's not meant to be this cold at this time of the year. Warm weather is coming soon... No worries.

So where have I been ? I've been feeding chimpanzees in a third world nation of your choice for the past week. Yes... That's the ticket.

No I was actually suspended for a week from the internet by my internet service provider. Good old Rogers Hispeed... Masters of public relations. Somehow... A Trojan horse virus made it's way on to my computer. It was in a file downloaded by either my brother or myself.... I'll wager it was my brother... But this isn't the blame game.

Anyways... This Trojan allowed some fuck to use my computer and internet connection to send unsolicited emails (SPAM) to people. Rogers received a complaint, several in fact.... And rather than helping me correct the situation they just cut of my connection. I spoke to their tech people, on numerous occasions in the past week... They assured me that it wasn't my fault and that many other people were in the same boat as me... But they couldn't turn my connection back on, or else their servers would get black listed by others... It's all a rich tapestry of techno-babble that I will spare you from... But they were justified.

Still... It was a little unfair... That I their loyal customer of 4+ years is made to suffer... Internet-less for a week. While some Spammer fuck profits from my misfortune. Well not this time MOFO ! I've outfitted my computer with the latest and best antivirus and firewall technology money can buy. It ain't gonna happen again:

#1. Because it angered me beyond belief.
#2. Because if it happens again Rogers will suspend my account for a month.

I don't want to take my business elsewhere... Because this is the first problem I've ever had with Rogers. I've been a very satisfied customer up until now... But if they suspend me for a month... Punish me like a child who has misbehaved when I'm not the one at fault... I'll be forced to switch to another ISP.

Now some of you are saying... A week... Big fucking deal. But when the internet is a primary means of communication with people, and a prime source of entertainment and news... It kind of sucks. I missed out on a lot of stuff... And I wasn't able to update my precious blog.

And that is that.
Check back to hear me discuss my disgust with the Ontario Election.
