Swept the living room today to get ready for the new sofa!! Listening to Morning Sedition & Unfiltered on Air America while I do this. Checking the Unfilted bog, my reading for later today...

ABS-CBN News says:

"...California-based Keynote Systems, which monitors the Internet performance of many large corporations, said it detected a “major” issue affecting the availability of websites for such companies as Yahoo, Google, Microsoft and Apple, lasting from about two hours Tuesday morning.

Keynote said the outage appeared to affect only clients of Akamai Technologies, which helps manage major companies’ Internet traffic. The service was apparently hit by hacker attacks in which a site or network is flooded by requests.

Although the problem appeared to have been fixed, some Yahoo e-mail users said they still experienced problems into the evening. Spokesmen for Akamai and Yahoo could not be reached for comment. ..."

So, basically, it seems that this leg of the internet has been hacked. They seem to be up and down, etc.

I am very PARANOID about this because it seems perfectly plausible to me that the current bastards in power are very threatened by the grass roots movement on the internet that solidifies the liberal movement.

You see, always ask yourself this question about events you cannot fully understand, WHO BENEFITS?? You see, if they knock out the internet in key places, then they can slow down the movement to throw them out of power, and they only have a few months to subvert the remaining communication & freedoms of America.

Sound CRACKED?? Oh, baby, you heard it here first is all. FLUTECAKE site This is what I worked on today, oh, and laundrey!

Well, this is just not my day.

Yahoo's problem, it turns out, is with Macs. I am taking that personal. I have Netscape 7.1, yet we cannot log in or out or anything.

I am kinda angry.

Now, I can't seem to get the Moblog to update. These two things are unrelated. But it is very aggrivating.

More on this later, I suppose.
This and that today.

I had a nice chat with Ruthie. Wants us to visit DC.

Testing out mobile entries to this Blog and to the Moblog.

Shopping for a new sofa.

Film at 11.

Yahoo is having fits this week, since they had an internet blackout the same day they changed their mail service.


Does it work for you??

Bloomsday is a secular holiday, celebrated annually on June 16. The day both celebrates the life of the Irish writer James Joyce and commemorates the fictitious events in his novel, Ulysses, all of which took place on a single day in Dublin.

Here's a web site with more information on the book

House of Bush/House of Saud

I am currently reading American Dynasty by Kevin Phillips but the House of Bush/House of Saud book by Craig Unger will be my next one.

Go see Fairenheit 9/11 trailer at Michael Moore's website. I can't wait to see this movie!!
The lastest news on the wireless front. I had difficulty with my Nokia 3650, I guess I dropped it or banged it around too much and its a tough le$$son to learn. I bought another one for a good price on eBay. While it works great, it does not know how to reach the Tmobile GPRS network. I will have to call customer support tomorrow to sort this out.

This means that I have not been wireless for about a week. Grrrr. I have 2 good non-bluetooth phones to fall back on but have really learned to like that GPRS service. Basically, for those of you that might read this and are saying to yourself "who cares about that!", it means that I can send email or look at the internet and still be able to take a call.
