Really...really badly.... the broadband doesn't like to work on its own whim...we do have dial up as back up though. Normally...dial up is reliable if a little slow. Today it informed me that the modem was "being blocked". I also have an account back up....tried the alternate account...finally got online. It is Slower Than Ever though....and yes i know one gets used to the speed of broadband but...having dealt with dial up many times, i had the seconds it takes to load things down to a well memorized science.
Something is very wrong with this picture...
ok, well, I cannot access any wifi, which I know is a danger to one and all in the household when it is running especially to a net book, which is what I have. But downstairs it works. My room is upstairs, in fact my suite is upstairs and I do probably spend way too much time with the netbook running next to my sleeping head. It think it odd. I do still have wifi and dsl, so I suppose I am thankful.
I've got to spoil it for all the believers in the Mayan "prophecy". It has to be a bunch of crap. Lots of reasons. 1: doesn't this seem like every other "get yourself in a big panic" hoaxes that the rats running things pull on the public? 2: 12-21-12 looks great to a numerologist using a current calender. That just equals evidence that they invented this date as coinciding with the Mayan prophecy. 3: What prophecy by the way? There's no prophecy. 4: Wait, there is a prophecy. It goes like this - "But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only."
The big excitement over this date has lost a bit of steam over the months, so i guess they need to throw a bitof fuel on the fire to keep it hot.
End of the world speculation after new Mayan discovery
Archaeologists in Mexico have confirmed the discovery of a possible second Mayan reference to the date 2012, offering further ammunition for doom-mongers predicting an apocalypse next year.
Stuff is happening slowly but i think the elite like to give folk these wild, big events to panic about so they don't notice the little changes sneaking up on them.
I mean big rumors. If they're worried about the world exploding in 2012 they won't notice all the new ways their food gets poisoned and all that.
No i don't suppose the whole world will crumble to pieces tomorrow morning but....there is a bad moon rising. A red one even. If you're feeling cranky...blame the moon.
Tristan, actually no, it works perfectly downstairs though. I can hold it over my head while whislling dixie and hopping on my left foot and sometimes it will work up there. But... I am also kind of being more diligent with my health since this too. I turn my wifi off at night when the computer gets turned off. I am not sure why its not working, but we are dealing ok with having to do our netting downstairs, I guess. It is kinda strange thought isn't it?
yesterday as I traversed the delta of Texas, I was noticing the coverage of the system, its about every 4 to 6 miles that there is a tower to ping, they have to over lap a bit to insure over lap, lol. I notice when I cross the bay, I will lose connection, depending on whether or not the wind is blowing. That bridge is one mile at least. I have a cable based system, so that is strange we had problems at the same time, but my system is not the same as yours at all. Not an air based system. I think mine could have been a spiritual thing. I was sleeping next to a radioactive wave pulsing unit of death all night long for months. I am feeling better now. I should take better care of myself, I know that. But sometimes we need the reminder. Like getting a ticket for not wearing your seat belt. Yes, I did that too this week. lol. You remember really easy for the next year or so. Be blessed. Try whistling dixie, Tristan.
Fast on the heels of a solar storm that delivered a glancing blow over the weekend — triggering bright auroras in Canada and Scandinavia — the sun released an even more energetic blast of radiation and charged plasma overnight that could disrupt GPS signals and the electrical grid Tuesday, especially at high latitudes, space weather experts warned Monday morning.
Already, the storm could be disrupting satellite communications as streams of radiation from the sun bounce across the Earth’s magnetic field, which extends above the surface into space.
“With the radiation storm in progress now, satellite operators could be experiencing trouble, and there are probably impacts as well to high frequency [radio] communications in polar regions,” said Doug Biesecker, a physicist at the Space Weather Prediction Center, part of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration in Boulder, Colo.
Such radio blackouts can force airlines to reroute flights between North America and Europe or Asia.
Jupiter, Moon To Shine Closely Together In Night Sky Monday

Stargazers looking up as darkness falls on Monday (Jan. 21) will notice an eye catching pairing-off between two of the brightest objects in the nighttime sky, weather permitting.
The moon, appearing as a waxing gibbous phase, 78 percent illuminated, will appear to stand close below a very bright, non-twinkling, silvery "star." But it won't be a star that will be keeping the moon company on America's Inauguration Night, but the largest planet in our solar system: Jupiter.
Across much of the United States and southern Canada, this will be closest that the moon and Jupiter will appear relative to each other until the year 2026. On Monday night, the moon will be about of 248,700 miles (400,500 kilometers) from Earth, while Jupiter will be nearly 1,664 times farther out in space at a distance of 413.8 million miles (665.9 million km).
During Monday's stargazing event, observers have the chance to see what astronomers call an appulse — a very close approach of the moon to Jupiter. An appulse is a phenomenon caused by perspective only. There is no close physical approach in space between the two objects involved. Astronomers insist that appulses have no direct effect on the Earth.
