I did! Also went to visit my blind friend who lives in Utrecht. Forgot to bring my camera though. Full report will come tomorrow as I'm exhausted.

Had met up with somebody from another forum yesterday, because of that I woke up extra early for my rounds and stayed up late for the Patatje Metal-concert. So I spent father's day exhausted.

The weekly door-to-door mag just quit, so now it's just advertising I deliver. Crap.

I keep finding black fiber under my fingernails and on sections of skin. Shoddy T-shirt quality from that free shirt.

Bonny, you should probably get out of that stupid thread at zappa.com. I knew Galoot was a bit of a dick and now I see he's totally obnoxious. And JPF, don't get me started on him ... I totally agree that Isaac was bullied by these guys. Slime was nearly as bad. I used to like him when I first joined the forum, but he's turned out to be a bit of a dick as well. The thing about Isaac though is that he didn't have any boundaries and could be extremely nasty. Read the last post he made at zappa.com, just before being banned.

I hope your never ending story is finished. :D

We have been having intermittent problems with our internet since we moved into this house in December 2007. Skipping the majority of those problems, last October we were having a pretty bad patch and finally in November a tech guy game out to a switch box in our area and said he'd found some dodgy wiring and after repairing it, our connection improved significantly. We've been getting a fairly consistent maximum speed of 8.2Mbps which, because it was better than before and was stable for some time, gave me no reason to complain.

Then, early this June, our ISP did some work in the area, supposedly to improve their service and since then our connection has become unstable again and the maximum speed dropped. I was told that it should be about 9.4Mbps, which it has never been close to. Another tech has just been out, and he did some tests on the link to the exchange and decided it was dodgy. Instead of waiting to find out what's wrong with it, he connected us to a new link. Stability has returned and now we're getting 9.3Mbps max. So we've been putting up with a basically dodgy connection for years now. You really have to push these people to get anything properly fixed.

We had the same thing. Because we lived too far from the antenna, we only got about half the oomph that we paid for. Now we have glass fiber. When I uploaded a video without shrinking it down, I was flabbergasted it only took 10 minutes.

Just got back from a blind guiding weekend in Leeuwarden - got a guided tour of the provincial TV/radio studios (got on TV), went to a pancake restaurant on a ship, took a yoga class on Saturday, and played minigolf and had a guided tour through town today.

The introduction of broadband internet is a farce that's been going on since the early 1990s in Australia. The original plan was a cable network, with an upper limit of 100 Mbps, which was halted part way through because people weren't subscribing at the rate desired by Telstra in order to provide enough profit. So we've ended up with some areas where cable is available and they get very good internet, while everyone else has to put up with ADSL, which has a much lower upper speed limit than cable of 20 Mbps. Of course, you don't get the full 100 Mbps on cable as speeds are limited and the theoretical upper limit of ADSL is not achieved in most cases, ours currently being just over 9Mbps.

The current national plan for developing internet access in Australia is called the NBN. National Broadband Network. This time they're rolling out a network with a fibre back bone but it's implementation is seriously slow. There is yet only a small percentage of the total area of just the inner metropolitan area of Adelaide, the capital city of South Australia. We live right next to one of the main areas where it's been completed and who knows when they'll get to us, it's frustrating. Our daughter, who lives within Greater London is on the new fibre network there and it's fantastic.

That is not much more than I get and I have the shitty comcast cable which is only one of two providers in my area. Yet I am a hop skip and a jump to silicon valley.

Those things get more annoying the longer it lasts since internet traffic is taking up more and more space. When I visit Tumblr the connection does have a hard time.

Yes Bonny, that's the other side of the coin. Even you have a fast internet connection you have to deal with the cheap bastards on the internet who won't provide enough bandwidth for their entire customer base.

Hey Huck, long time no see. The modern world is riddled with irony.

Which is great, I'd appreciate the activity here. At the moment the big Z place has lost its appeal.

The Z place is degenerating into pre Isaac banning ridiculousness.

Hey Huck, doesn't your son play guitar? Those Blue Devils are pretty impressive, though it's hard to hear a lot of the detail in the percussion in that recording.
