So if you’re a regular reader you’ve noticed that it has been a month since my last post. I’ve missed you. The major culprit in this situation is Verizon and their mobile hotspot that we employ to have internet access at Wolf’s Haven. They are really our only option here due to lack of signal […]

Tuesday , 3, June 2014 Comments Off on Net Neutrality

So I happen to be one of those who believe that Net Neutrality means exactly that; the same level of service and services available to all regardless of their financial ability or station in life.
