what is really going on with that homeleand security song and dance about a test of their "new and improved" warning system to be turned on today. Only supposed to affect tv and internet....why not radio? Something smells about this thing, especially with Napolitano and her goons involved. Don't trust those people any further than I could throw them. I am going to read the net speed after this and compare it to after the "improvement". I have a feeling it will be down. Time will tell.
I unplugged serial modem from phone line-not that THAT would do much good! Just felt better about it. Speed is down some, but not enough to raise eyebrows. However, Thunderbird is slow and wonky all of a sudden. Kept wanting to run spell check on the word Alabama...I don't remember using that word in an email for years.....odd.
Did a reload of Thunderbird and seems fine now-I am hoping it was just "tired"! Colorado-it is an email client, or carrier if you will, similar to outlook express. i have noted a few around the country that experienced glitches with their internet yesterday even though the homeland yokels are now saying the test was for broadcast services only. Internet and phone to come later. Many areas apparently did not have a test, some areas were an hour or more late...supposedly did not even work in parts of Oregon. Sounds like a flop to me. Good.
