No one likes a know-it-all. I know, because I’ve been one all my life. I’ve been ostracized, bullied, harassed, taunted, excluded and even beaten up by people in the course my life. I learned early on to hide myself because even average people will seek to destroy things they can’t understand. Lack of understanding leading to fear. Correctly predicting the future scares people. When Michael Moore predicted a loss for Hillary Clinton in this year’s election - many vilified him. I agreed with him and said little. He’s written and spoken about his observations at length, but the nutshell version is that the people in rural America are stuck. There are diminishing economic opportunities in those regions, and they have no idea why. My experience is that they will accept any explanation that doesn’t involve their own culpability. My insulated liberal friends did not want to hear what I was saying. I crave social acceptance and let it go. It never feels good to be right whe
VyprVPN can't handle the truth. They can't handle gigabit fiber speeds either. Look - I think they actually have a pretty good product. For the most part I can VPN at pretty good speeds. But a 90% haircut on throughput at home is a little hard to swallow. Even harder to swallow is the fact that they refuse to admit that they can't handle it. All they do is offer apologies as if that will change the numbers I'm observing. Not realistic. I think my next step will be an AWS-based roll-your-own kind of service or maybe I'll just go back into research mode but right now I'm feeling really disappointed. The technology is there to be secure from the home, but the providers aren't keeping up. On VPN I can download from the BBC in London faster than I can access Savage Love. Pretty sad really. <Sigh>
+509 words, but more importantly resisted the urge to play WoW with a friend. Saving throw vs. Death Magic made! I was feeling guilty about missing two days in a row, but you know? Life happens. Last night I went to the hospital to meet my brand new niece, so no writing. I'm still going to finish this trilogy before she knows how to read. I'm just going to keep looking forward and enjoying the writing I am able to accomplish.
