Narcissism is just so unattractive in a human being, but even more so for an entire industry.  Hollywood, the music industry, and big pharma want to kill the internet as it exists today because....well, because all of reality orbits around them.  God knows, we can't have anything interfere with these three vacuuming up every last spare penny we have, otherwise, just maybe, we might then realize that the world does not revolve around these fuckers.
The IT guy finally showed up.  The internet is back in business.  I suspect this was a firmware update gone bad, but the IT guy was mute about it all. About fifty people can get back online again.  Such aggro, not being able to access anything but email!

Well, this sucks

Century Link is so unreliable here in Albuquerque, the apartment complex is gonna switch to Comcast sometime in the next three weeks.....but up until then, I only have a spotty internet connection.  I can't even access my own web site, rpbird.com.  Just great, can't update it, can't do research on the web.  I feel like going down to the nearest Century Link office and tuning up one of their scumbag supervisors.  But I'm not Tony Soprano.  Wish I were, but I'm not.

Meanwhile, because Google essentially IS the internet, I can write this.  I can even do a google search.  Can't access any of the sites I might find on a google search, but I can look at their links.

Here's hoping Century Link goes broke real soon.
