Here We Go

A brief update before my site goes offline for our latest move folly. How long will it be down? Well, valid question. There are some good points and some bad with this move, as I suppose is always the case. The Internet service falls quite squarely in the “bad” category. I am somewhat concerned it will not accommodate my needs in the manner to which I am accustomed. After probably way too much worrying about it, it was decided that it wasn’t worth checking our new house off the possibilities list, and we’ll just make do. This approach rarely works out, maybe this will be an exception to that rule.

In lieu of actual content this week, I bring you a video of Nacho and her blanket. She gets comically upset if it is not on the couch where it belongs. This, of course, leads me to move it now and then, just to keep her guessing. As a side note, you may be able to hear the sound of quality TV programming in the background while this video was taken. I have enjoyed MeTV via an antenna feed for a few years now. For the reasonable price of free, I am able to watch all the classics. (Andy Griffith, The Rifleman, Bonanza, Gunsmoke, etc.) This also comes to a screeching halt at the new digs, as we appear to be out of antenna range. Ummm why am I moving again?

    • Yeah it doesn’t stack up very favorably.
      Speed: Went from 300 Mbps to 6 Mbps
      Cost: Went from $50 a month to $80 a month. (Makes the speed part even more painful.)
      Support: As near as I can tell, there is no way to port-forward, reserve local addresses, modify dns servers (for my pihole server) etc. They will not answer any support emails or chats, and nobody has ever answered the phone. Pretty sure I know the answer anyway.
