GENT - In de gemeenteraad was er maandagavond flink wat ophef rond het bestek over nieuw straatmeubilair, zeg maar bushokjes en reclamepanelen. De stad zoekt een nieuwe leverancier in de hoop zo meer reclamegeld binnen te halen. Alleen, dit heeft voor gevolg dat alle 554 bushokjes vervangen moeten worden. ‘We kunnen niet anders’, stelt schepen van Openbare Werken Filip Watteeuw (Groen).

amen to that.
 
The second* saddest thing about the 'Net these days is that all the smart folks are developing products, and nobody seems to be developing open platforms. Back in the day, we had smart folks like Jarkko Oikarinen, Jon Postel, and Tim Berners, working on things like IRC, email and the web. These were open systems built on open protocols like irc, smtp, pop, http, html, et cetera. Anyone could build a mail client or web server. Now we have centralized, proprietary services like Twitter,
Facebook, Instagram, and the lot. For a while it looked like XMPP/Jabber could be an open platform for chat, but now even Google is moving away from it to their proprietary Hangouts. If were lucky the companies running these services provide a public API, but even then it's at the pleasure and discretion of the owners.  Kind of a bummer, no?

* The saddest thing of course is anonymous commenting.

Getting a good Internet connection (while not getting shafted) in Belgium is hard. And sadly the fastest one (+Telenet), is also the most evil.

Set aside the ingenious ways they can find to cripple your connection and the sheer incompetence of their support staff, their management tops it all.

Latest trick up their sleeve to extort more money for their meager service is to cancel support for the older digicorders (SD). That's right, if you own a digicorder, it will stop working because they only want HD. Funny that, as for DVB-T they recently cancelled DVB-T2 (HD) and only go for SD.

The real reason is of course money. The HD digicorders are only for rent (8+ euro/month), those one-time sold models bring no more money.

What's worse, because of this I need to either start renting one, or do without and pay more anyway, because if you don't have a digicorder, you don' t have digital TV and thus you are not entitled to have the all-in-one package which saves money.

So, +Telenet, in the end you make me pay a little bit more, or a whole lot more, for the same lousy service. It's a win/win for you and a big loss for the customers.

Time to check the alternatives.

Super locatie voor een snack, grote bier-keuze, super-vriendelijke (en grappige) bediening. Aanrader. Wordt overgelaten aan nieuwe uitbaters in eind 2012

Reasonable place given that it is build from containers, food was ok but nothing exceptional. Excelent service - very friendly and even talked to us in Dutch.

Zeer onvriendelijke bediening: als je 10 seconden nadenkt over een alternatief omdat je wens niet verkrijgbaar is krijg je de opmerking 'ik heb wel nog ander volk dat ik moet bedienen' (het restaurant was LEEG op dat moment). En daar bleef het niet bij. Verder ZEER beperkte keuze aan bier (schitterende lokale bieren kenden ze zelfs niet) TIP: ga wat verder naar Vrolijke Frans - veel betere service en aanbod

Ervaring van ontbijt in Bord'eau: vrij onvriendelijke bediening, uiterst traag (zelfs met slechts 2 tafeltjes bezet!), zeer beperkt aanbod voor de prijs. Niet voor herhaling vatbaar.... Enig pluspunt is de locatie (uitzicht), al was de ober niet echt blij dat we met het mooie weer buiten wilden zitten.

Unfriendly, refused to sell us sandwiches they had on offer because 'they were out of bread' - so we went to the backery 2 houses further, he had plenty of bread on sale!
