I think think I set a personal best record, blocking over 100 accounts in the last two days. The number of people that regurgitate nonsense on the net neutrality issue is mind boggling. Even worse are those that parrot Fox News. If I came to a discussion of this importance and used Harry Potter as my source it would make more sense.

Oh, and on the 'secret' regulations; Title II regulations are a public document. The only question is which subset is going to be imposed on the ISPs and wireless carriers. The FCC has publicly stated its intent, so that should guide your reading.

https://apps.fcc.gov/edocs_public/attachmatch/FCC-15-13A1.pdf

But as the FCC has stated, their proposal is under review with interested parties (the ISPs). Once a final set has been agreed upon, you'll get to read it. Not that you will. Be honest; this stuff is dry and lifeless.

When Barbara feeds the birds, she puts a scoop of bird seed on the driveway. That's good for a couple hours of 'cat TV'.

The weird thing in this story isn't that China is requiring source code from those that it still does business with. The weird thing is that our country and businesses don't require source code.
Cisco, Apple, McAfee and Citrix have all been dropped from China's official list of approved products, according to the Reuters news agency.

Danger Mouse is coming back to Netflix!
Penfold, shush.
Netflix is growing its kids' content slate with more original and exclusive series, including animated remakes of "Inspector Gadget" and "Danger Mouse."

Someone else takes care of him as well, and they manage to bathe him periodically. He let us use a warm wet washcloth to clean the blood off and check his wounds. His general mode of operation is to come to us when he's injured - we feed him and clean his wounds, remove ticks, and let him sleep. The other people that care for him we call "the spa" - they wash him and make him "showroom ready." He knows where to go when he wants specific treatment. :)

Thanks to +Google for the template. And thanks to those members of the FCC that put the citizens of our country above special interests. This is how government is supposed to work.

Duke arrived today covered in blood and scratches. While he looks bad, it's all superficial. I'm sure 'the other guy' is in worse shape. We're cleaning him up and getting him fed; he'll probably sleep the day away in the greenhouse. The life of an alpha male is a hard one.

For throw-back Thursday: Back about a million years ago, we used to play laser tag in the office after work hours. A bunch of people running around the cubicle maze in a business with toy guns having a good time. I don't think that would end well today, and that makes me sad.

My favorite RSS/Atom newsreader, gReader, has gone down the tubes: full screen ads, broken UI. My needs are simple; give me my feeds with a readable font and font size, and a UI that doesn't get in my way. 

FeedMe delivers. Simple, clean, adjustable font size, no ads, selectable dark theme (saves battery on OLED screens).

Great service! Jared came to our house to repair our snowblower (no spark, wouldn't start). It runs great now. It's nice that I didn't have to try to get it to a repair shop either. Prompt arrival when scheduled, fast repair, very reasonable pricing. If any of our small engines acts up again, he's the first person we'll call.

I had cracked a tooth and needed a crown. They took a 3D scan of my mouth, and used an onsite milling machine to make a permanent crown in 7 minutes. It fit perfectly. The staff are very friendly and knowledgeable, and they all go out of their way to make you feel comfortable. Highly recommended.

We had some storm damage on our siding, and had Majestic do the repair. They matched the siding perfectly, were very courteous and professional. Their prices were also excellent. We will happily be using them again.
