Laissez Les Bon Temps Rouler!

Mardi Gras Weekend

The Pensacola News Journal has a schedule of local events.

There’s something political going on next Tuesday, apparently, which is par for the course in this screwed up year – having the most primaries scheduled on Shrove Tuesday.

Clogged Tubes

I’m beginning to suspect that the telcos are engaged in a bit of filtering of DSL. Beginning two days ago I’ve had a miserable time getting to this site, with a lot of time outs and not founds along the way. When I go to the hosting service and run the diagnostics everything is wonderful, and I have no problem at all reaching the hosting service, which indicates it is not a routing problem in general, but specific to my site.

Then I noticed the same types of problems with Bark Bark Woof Woof, the Yellow Doggerel Democrat, Sideshow, and a few others. I already know that this site is blocked by a lot of filters because there is an avid gamer who uses the nom de jeu of “Whynow” and is on gaming sites all over. The other sites get blocked for various SBC sphincter-control problems that result in astroturffing. I’m trying to get some information on what’s going on, but there is a major problem reaching “customer service”: Internet failure hits two continents
