Okay so my last post was pretty passive-aggressive*. It went something like - if the powers that be don't want me to access popular websites like blogspot.com and youtube.com and facebook.com (yes, Facebook, for crying out loud!) then fine!
I won't access them.
And blogosphere will miss me.
And blogosphere will think how terrible it is that access to information isn't free here.
Only guess what? The blogosphere party is pretty much going right on without me. Dr. Cai narrowly avoided a couple of fistfights in his taxi in Singapore. Penelope got engaged in Wisconsin. Mr. Clark didn't win his bid to be mayor of Provo, dangit. Skrocki is leaving Sun, double dangit.
And all I got was a T-shirt that says, "I'm being passive aggressive."
It fits me very well, by the way.
And my blogosphere friends did feel bad that information wasn't free here but they were like, "It's your own fault for moving there."
[BTW I know like is so '80s. In the '90s we said all as in, "He was all, 'It's your own fault for moving there'. " But someone please tell me what we say here in the '00s so I can update my vocabulary.]
And although I thought free access might be restored in October it wasn't. So I don't see the light at the end of my passive-aggressive tunnel.
So if free access isn't restored soon, I'm afraid I will just find ways...
(*For the uninitiated, or mentally healthy, passive aggressiveness means you do exactly what someone tells you to do, hoping that they will regret it one day.)
