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…


I Broke My Flock

It happened yesterday.
Flock had some updates to add-ons and what-nots.
I accepted them.
And then the wheels fell off.
For those of you unfamiliar with Flock, it's simply the absolute best browser in the whole entire world.
Right now I feel like I've lost my best friend.
Heck - even my best friend uses Flock!!!!

So - the updates happened, and then all of a sudden, the vast majority of sites I go to - Google included, stopped loading. No google, no flickr, no twitter.

Yes, I thought it was a silly internet problem.
Alas, running Firefox (gasp!!) and Flock in tandem proved the internet theory wrong. At the same time, Firefox could retrieve google, and yet Flock hung FOREVER. Trying to go into the add-on menu to see if I could get rid of the offending upgrade simply results in Flock crashing.
Removing and reinstalling didn't help either.

Now - It's magic.
The tears on my keyboard have somehow revived Flock.
It's the only explanation. The Flock gods have spoken.
