ET now back online.

Goodbye Bell and DSL,
No more life in internet hell,
We’ll miss you not a wit,
Losing sleep and patience,
bit by bit,
ET is again all able,
thanks to the benefit of going cable.

We’ve been off for a bit due to an internet failure on the home turf. DSL service failed completely after several months of increasingly erratic service. Old phone line, rotten phone lines, no will from Bell to fix any of it. Why work for your business when the CRTC will simply hand it to you… My third party ISP won’t be happy after 11 years with them, but Bell is determined to squeeze them out. If the internet is to survive and be affordable in Canada, two things have to happen: Screw “Canadian Content” and kill off the CRTC. Fire.Them.All. Then, open the marketplace, and especially the distribution infrastructure, to real competitive business.

Moving…

The Editorial Times is in process of moving from Blogger to WordPress, so this site will be in a state of flux for a bit. The Blogger version is currently at EditorialTimes.ca (this has now changed and both urls now point to this format), while this version is sitting on EditorialTimes.com. The new wordpress format is crisper and cleaner, and fits better where I want the blog to go for the next while. Shortly, http://www.editorialtimes.ca and http://www.editorialtimes.com will point to the new site. The Blogger site will remain for a while at its base url: editorialtimes.blogspot.com- I haven’t yet made the decision as to how much of the old content will be moved over. This is a labour intensive and slow process, and there is a fair bit of structural work to be done yet on the new site.

Editorial Times.ca originally started in 2003, as an html site that required laborious creation of new html pages for each post entry. Its original purpose remains, to provide selected editorial content concerning issues of the day, with a particular emphasis on Canadian issues, and like many blogs, it ebbs and flows with the interests of its owner and of the issues and topics of the day.

I’m open to adding regular guest contributors, if anyone wants to be a participant. While I am “predominantly” conservative politically, I value considered contrary opinion. This shouldn’t be interpreted as providing a forum for “nutroots” of either persuasion, but even they provide a standard on which to compare and contrast. As my tagline says, The Thorn of Dissent is the Flower of Democracy – one can’t exist without the other.
