Privacy

I’m uncomfortable that my personal information, name, address and telephone number is viewable when you do a “whois” search on my domain name.

I contacted my web service provider and inquired how I could fix it. Turns out for $20 they would hide my info, but their online form wasn’t working so I had to confirm through email that I wanted the service charged to my account. I then received an email saying the service was not available for .ca accounts but the CIRA is hiding all personal information as of April 2007 to comply with the Privacy Act. This is automatic and free of charge. Thanks CIRA for saving me $20. My personal information has been available since I purchased my domain in 2004. What took so long?


Young at heart

As I was leaving the skating rink parking lot today some guy in a Jeep Cherokee nearly ran into the side of me. I had to slam on my brakes to avoid him. He then laid on the horn as if I had done something wrong and shook his fist at me. Taking his proper place behind me he continued to honk his horn and shake his fist.

Now, if there’s one thing I know for sure, you should never honk your horn at someone ahead of you. I had to put my brakes on again and he nearly ran into the back of me. When I stopped at the lights, he came up beside me and, wait for it… flipped me the chicken. Isn’t that nice? I was so enlightened by his response.


Same Day

The rain fell, the sun shone
the snow melted, the ice froze

The light was dark, the night brought hope
the warmth cooled, the wind was hot
