telecom, technology and the occasional floobergeist

I’ve got an abundance of bits and pieces of canadian telecom and internet experience, and I am thrilled to be in a place in time when all is changing, technology is developing, and the status quo is being disrupted. 

Floobergeist is a word that is beginning to defy definition.  The more I roll that smooth pebble around, the more it becomes to mean. Floobergeist started out as the magic dust that turns dreams into ideas.  And then it began to encompass the zing that happens when you have conversations about those ideas. And now, it’s the whole evolution from dream to conversation, with each step improving the later and the former along the way.

Everyone aspires to good conversations. They can lead you to adventures you’ve never imagined, and to people you can twig with.

Let’s have a good conversation…


Webkinz: Down and Out Again

I'm pretty understanding when web applications require maintenance.  I'm all about the maintenance window, and knowing that you eventially you will need to do something that's going to be customer impacting.  What I can't figure out is the frequency in which some sites require said maintenance, and the screwed up times that they choose.

Webkinz is down again this morning, 7:39 EST. Prime kid usage time.

Why wouldn't they do maintenance after midnight?
No wonder I am hearing kids screaming outside this early.
